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.
