It Really Is Better Wet: The Lowdown On Lube
Talking about personal lubricant can be embarrassing. Have no fear, our primer will make you a pro!

We understand that we spend a lot of time talking about condoms - when you are a Condom Subscription Service, you tend to do that.

But what we have come to realize is we don't spend near enough time discussing the fun and sexy personal lubricants that can add more than a little zing to your next encounter.

These days, personal lubricants are not only about helping with vaginal dryness, they have been updated to support you in reaching new heights of pleasure.

With Lucky Bloke's Condom AND Lube Subscription Service, exploring personal lubricants has never been simpler. Now, buying premium lube (from around the world) is affordable, reliable and discreet!

We know sometimes it can be embarrassing to talk about lubricants, so read our primer and you will be a Lube Pro in a flash.

Let's start with the basics:

  • Always use water-based or silicone-based lube with latex condoms.
    (Never use an oil based lube with condoms, you run the risk of damaging the condom!)
  • Not only will the slickness of lube enhance your enjoyment, lube can make sex safer. (Less friction with a condom, the less chance it will break!)
  • Water-based lubes are easy to clean up with water. They are slippery and may need to be reapplied.
  • Silicone-based lubes are slick and can be used in water!
  • Arousal lubes (generally water-based) can enhance the experience by warming, tingling, and adding a little zing.
  • Flavored lubes (also water-based) can add a certain tastiness to the experience. They come in many, many flavors.
  • Desensitizing lubes can help men to last longer. So if you are struggling with premature ejaculation and want endurance, they are the way to go.

Did you know that you do not have to buy an entire bottle of lube?
Pillow packs (think travel size or sachet) are perfect for trying a new lube (or two)!  Easy and compact for the jet-set 
lifestyle!  Another good reason to grab a few pillow packs and head for that tropical island getaway. 
(Typically, they are about the same size as a condom package, and good for a single use.)
