There are so many questions on our minds related to condoms and lubes. Due to a lack of information people avoid using them in their sexual life. But with time people are getting aware of lubrication and condoms, but there are still some questions like -Are lubes harmful? Can we use both condoms and lubes together? And so on.
First thing first, let’s start with basic ones.
Condoms are used for storing all the fluid that comes from men during sexual intercourse, so they are the only method of contraception that also protects you from HIV and other sexually transmitted diseases. Men and women use different types of condoms. The male condoms are worn over the penis, while the female condoms sit inside the women's vagina with the M sticking out for easy removal. Condoms come in different sizes, shapes, textures, and scents so they can add some fun to the sex. Choosing a condom that you and your partner are comfortable with is important. Condoms are short-term methods of protection, so if you know that you don’t want a child any time soon and do not want any tricky method of contraceptive, always use a condom.
Some condoms have lubricants, to make them more comfortable during sex, while others do not have lubrication.
Non-lubricants condoms can use with water-based lubricants. Never use Vaseline or other oil-based lubricants, as they will break down the condom. Remember to always be responsible to protect your health and your partner’s health and always use a condom. Most importantly it’s both man and woman’s responsibility to get and use condoms. Condoms are great for everyone from new relationships to married couples. Also, the people are being aware of using condoms with the Bollywood releasing movies like Helmet about Condom propagation, which carries a social message against overpopulation.
• Some people think two condoms are better than one they’re wrong, wearing two condoms causes them to rub against one another and they are more likely to break.
• Condoms cannot get lost in the vagina. The vagina is a small contained area and there is no way to go but out, if a condom comes off it can remove by using a finger and pulling it out.
• You don’t need a condom during anal sex, but in actual condoms should be used where ever there is an exchange of body fluids. So yes we need condoms for anal sex too.
• Condoms don’t expire, but they do. So always check for the expiry date at the back of the condom.
Sex with a condom does feel different than sex without one, but it is not bad, as it can help the man to last longer during sex, and most importantly sex without worries about pregnancy always feels better.
Lubricants can enhance your sexual experience, so if you are not using one, you’re missing out on the actual fun. Lubricants are used as an intended substitute for natural moisture and they are intended to decrease the friction during penetrated intercourse. Researchers estimate that lubricants have been used for well over a thousand areas, in places likes China, Japan, and Korea. First-time lubricant to be used was in 350 BC in ancient Rome and ancient Greece, where they use olive oil as a lubricant. Since numbers things are used as lubricants and now with the help of modern technology all sorts of lubricants are easily available in the market.
We cannot justify how important lubricants are. It does not matter if you are wet or if you are not so wet, but the use of lubricant is fantastic. Lubricants are great for sex; it just simply gives more pleasure than normal sex.
Lubricants help to prevent you from roughness, dryness, and also from cuts and irritations. Lubrication also prevents the breakage of condoms. Lubricants are great for keeping your vaginal flora intact and also not affecting it or making it prone to infection and dryness.
In the case of oil-based lubricants always remember one thing that, never use an oil-based lubricant with condoms. Oil-based lube with condoms can cause the breakage of condoms. So for condoms water-based or silicone-based lubes are fine, but oil-based lube is a NO.
So the question is when can you use oil-based lubes?
You can use oil-based lube in the shower. When you are having sex in the shower and if you are using toys in the shower then, oil-based lube is the best product for you. Because the density of oil lube will not wash off in the shower, you can use oil-based lube in that kind of situation.
Anything that smells or tastes like candy, do not put down there. It is high in sugar with a lot of flavors, and those kinds of lubricants are made for oral sex. When you are having a dry mouth and you are not able to have smooth oral sex, actually lubricants can be used for oral sex as well
