Silicone lube is a water-resistant lube that's safe to use with condoms and ideal for long-lasting lubrication during sex. Lots of people love silicone lube as it doesn't end up feeling sticky like a water-based lube does. Silicone lube is even waterproof, so it's fantastic for fulfilling bathroom sex fantasies.
Silicone sex lube is generally more expensive than water-based lube (because it contains more expensive ingredients) but you get a lot for your money. The long-lasting properties mean you won’t need to keep topping up your lubrication and you’ll need less of it too.
One important thing to note is that you can’t use silicone lube with your silicone sex toys, but it’s perfect for your glass or plastic toys and ideal for sex.

Some people choose a cock ring that is worn on the shaft, while others like the feeling of a cock ring that goes around both the penis and the testicles. This guide will show you how to put on both kinds of cock ring.
