why use a lubricant?
People may want to add lubricant for reasons:
Decrease painful friction in the vagina and/or anus
Enhance sexual arousal by stimulating the flow of blood to the vulva, which encourages your body to create some of its own lube
Lubricate the clitoris; this can create more sexual pleasure and an easier route to orgasm
Change taste during oral sex
Keep vaginal skin soft and help maintain elasticity of vaginal walls
When it comes to choosing a lubricant, consider two things: your comfort and your safety.
