what is lube?

Ah, sexy times. Theoretically, it’s simple stuff: In, Out, Rub, Lick, Ooh, Aah, Done! But girl, there are a ton of things you can use to turn your bedroom break into something truly amazing. One of those things is lube!

Lube is liquid that is used to make your vagina more “wet” so that any in-and-out goes more . . . smoothly! Sounds good, right? Well, it is–but there are a few things you should know before you decide to try out your very own Sexy Slip N’ Slide. Here are the facts about lube:

* You can buy lube that’s made out of all kinds of things–petroleum, silicone, etc–but water-based lube is always the best. It’s less likely to irritate your delicate lady-bits and is totally safe to use with condoms.

* Petroleum-based lubes are a major no-no, since they can actually make the condom you’re using break. Unwanted pregnancy, anyone? Yeah. No. Didn’t think so.

* Lubes that contain glycerin (which is a sugar) can give you a yeast infection. Ick. Avoid them–even if they say they come in tasty flavors!

* Applying lube to your sexy parts can be a fun part of foreplay! Be creative–and always be safe.

* You can use lube on your guy (over the condom) and even on sex toys!

* Never use cooking oils, Vaseline, or any other random kitchen stuff as lube. You could damage your condom or end up with a nasty vaginal infection. So not worth it!

    • alexander

      you should wait. if you want to have sex with him go for it. but the right thing to do is wait. don’t want to get an unwanted pregnancy do you no. you should wait.

  • Crush02

    And here I though I’d get advice from some mature adults but all I saw is 12 and 13 years old can’t keep their virginity. It’s not like you got rape, why rush having sex when you know there is no guarantee you gonna stay forever with that person. Little kids these day can’t think.

  • Sex master

    I was 10 when i had sex lube made it alot better

    • anonymus

      Are you crazy?! Ten years old, this world has gone mental, im surprised your not pregnant.

  • Jimmy

    Most of these fuckers on here are way too young to be having sex. It’s disgusting that one girl actually got pregnant at just 15! Wtf if you’re gonna have sex at a young ass age at least be smart. Fuck.

    • Thomas

      I know man. You are so right

  • Tabitha

    Lubes sound interesting, never used one before but then i just might.

  • carla

    agree. Lube makes a messy job but when its your first time and the guy is trying to get his penis into you and things are getting really heated up and frustrating for him because you are scared and it keeps slipping out, Lube makes it so easy for him to go inside of you. I was 13 too and I was wondering how he would be able to get his penis into me. I had heard all this stuff about hurting and things but he had Lube and even though he was “huge” he could go in all the way. I didnt hurt, and not much bleeding at all. I think if you are an early starter and your bf is older, it really helps because you are a lot smaller and he has to get that big thingy into you.

    • carla

      Don’t worry I lost my virginity when I was 12 my bf told me to use a lube it felt so good when he ribbed it on me I had sex with him 1 month ago and I found out I am pregnant and I’m 15 any advice please but the lube fells so good but please advice

  • innocentgurl

    I must admit I am no longer the innocent one. I started having sex just before turning 13 and my bf was huge. He was experienced and he must have had numerous girlfriends before me. When I lost my virginity to him he told me that because I was so young I would not get wet easily because I probably hadn’t developed fully and my hormones hadn’y quite kicked in. So he used a lot of lube inside me and on his penis. He also explained that he was worried he might rip me if he didnt use lube. Also, my anxiety and nervousness wasn’t going to help. He penetrated me very easily with the lube and it felt so good when he was thrusting it into me. It didnt hurt. It was like a “well oiled piston in a tight cylinder”. LOL. :P

  • SwexiiG

  • BleedingSun

    somehow i dont see younger girls needing it. I for one can naturally soak through JEANS, so somehow i dont see myself needing lube at any point soon.

    • Carol

      Some girls don’t need it, but others really do.
      You still may need to use lube in the future, even if you don’t think so. After all, it never hurts to have a little extra to help. :)

    • LucidMeaghanDhabolt ~a.k.a. Lucidkitty~

      Bleeding not all girls get wet on the same level. Many girls have issues with lubrication all their lives, so it does benefit them to know. These same girls would be the ones putting lotion, or oil into their vaginas.

  • luvmartie

    ewwwwwww Lube sounds totally gross!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    People actually use this stuff?!

    • missrahma13
