How To Choose A Lubricant For Pleasure And Safety(2)
- Jun 22, 2018 -

If you have chronic pain, a lubricant containing lidocaine or benzocaine — numbing agents that can reduce vaginal, oral or anal pain — may be prescribed or recommended to you.

When it comes to choosing a lubricant, consider two things: your comfort and your safety.

Comfort refers to your pleasure; the amount and staying power of the lubricant can make a difference in how good the sexual activity feels, and whether the lubricant irritates your genitals.

Safety refers to your health; oil-based lubricants cannot be used with latex condoms, as they can destroy the latex and cause condom failure.
