There we were, sitting inside CopperMuse Distillery with cocktails filling the table at our very first Naked Fort Collins writer’s meeting. We were getting to know a little bit about each other while coming up with content ideas for the next few months. I’m sure we shocked every person within earshot as we listed swingers, homeless sex, blow job techniques, and tinder dates as upcoming topics.
“What about a group question? Like what’s your favorite vibrator? Or your favorite lube?” someone brought up.
It was perfect. The whole point of Naked Fort Collins is to share different perspectives about sex and relationships in Fort Collins, so why not chime in on an issue as a group? We decided that we’d have a group post once a month to spice things up (as if they need to be on this blog).
Have a question you’d like us to answer? Shoot me an email at Kristin@NakedFortCollins.com and we’ll add it to our list!
What Is Your Favorite Lube?
My number one choice for lube comes straight from me or the person I am with. Yep, that’s right, spit! It is natural, doesn’t have a weird taste or numb your lips, and in the moment, can be quite exciting. However, if I am in a spot, or not willing to go there (you know what I’m talking about), I also highly suggest any brand of pure silicone lubricant. I like this because it doesn’t leave you feeling sticky, or in need of a shower right away. And for those long nights or when you’ve possibly had a bit too much to drink, silicone lubricants are the perfect companion to make sure the fun continues.
It’s quite nice to us a high viscosity food-grade oil such as grapeseed or coconut. It’s already in your kitchen, it makes things soft and you can also cook with it when you are done. Grapeseed oil doesn’t really have a fragrance, but coconut oil does; depending on what you are okay with, pick your potion. Stay away from olive oils that have a lower viscosity and don’t stand up to heavy friction. If an oil absorbs too quickly into the skin, that’s no good either. A good quality, edible oil is safe to use and more affordable than popular OTC brands.
Our favorite lube comes from adamandeve.com. They have a great selection of lubes but my wife really likes the plain, jane name brand of lube. It water based, cheap and a little goes a long way. Like seriously, with just a dab it’s like a slip n slide! A super awesome slip n slide.
The one that she is not a fan of is the KY Yours and Mine. That tingling sensation that it is supposed to have just made it feel like her clit just got napalmed. At least that is how she described it.
I’ve tried numerous lubes and have found my favorite only this year. Coconut oil has changed our lube game from the first scoop. It smells like a tropical vacation, it’s soft, it can get in your hair and condition it, it works well for anal (lube is a MUST for that), and it’s edible. In those times that you go from vaginal sex to oral with it, you’re not getting a mouth full of something you don’t really want to eat. The only downsides are that you can’t use it with condoms because it will break down the latex and it will take your lipstick clean off.
Order it online. JoH2O was originally recommended to me by a lovely and highly sexual friend who often uses silicone lubes. Silicone and I have a love hate relationship. I love them and my body tends to hate them. So I was really intrigued by a water based lube that’s supposed to feel like silicone.
They don’t lie. It’s simply amazing. It has the stamina of silicone without the worries about compatibility with toys or your own pH. It also comes in flavors; I’ve enjoyed the pomegranate. And for those to whom it matters, it’s also gluten free.
Foria. It’s undeniably amazing and unlike any other sexual lube out there. It will change your sex life, guaranteed. Jesus, that sounds like a commercial, but it’s true. You’re going to have to read that review to find out why. You can pick it up at Organic Alternatives. Fuck yeah for living in Colorado!
I struggled with this one because I just didn’t have a clever answer. I’m just not a lube connoisseur and rarely even use it. But I suppose that’s just as relatable than the person who’s tried them all and have a legit top five list. 100% honesty: I just buy the generic store brand. Once we tried some warming gel shit and it made my bits feel on fire and probably gave me a yeast infection. Another time we got this flavored shenanigans and it was sticky and terrible and tasted like Hubba Bubba Squeeze Pop. Yuck. So… Fave lube? Kroger?
