Silicone Lube: The Ultimate Gay Sex Condiment

Silicone Lube: The Ultimate Gay Sex Condiment

As a matter of fact, silicone-based lubes have a terrible reputation for their potential to ruin sex toys. Still, they indeed hold a large set of advantages, especially if we talk about steamy man-on-man sex.

As many men here would agree: sex is better when it's better. The sad part about this is that the anus doesn't self lubricate, so gay men require lube when we're about to go to town. Besides, sometimes we just want to enjoy longer fuck sessions or sexy shower sex. Silicone lubes are perfect for every occasion in which a penis is bound to enter an asshole. Trust us, and you'll see why so many men have started using silicone-based lubes and changed their sex lives from "Meh!" to "Cum-tastic".

Why is silicone so good?

Silicone is a man-made substance; it's a polymer derived from naturally occurring silicone and other organic substances. Science has made it so consumers can benefit from its exceptional properties, which include: being inert, hydrophobic, hypoallergenic, and non-toxic.

This means both humans and the environment can tolerate silicone without much trouble. So, it's good for our bodies, does not harm the environment, and that's the reason why it's so used in the medical field in implants, or catheters, for example. That's also the reason why many sex toys and personal care items are made of silicone too.

10 Reasons to Use Silicone Lube

1) Perfect for anal sex

Your asshole doesn't produce its own lubricant. So, using a silicone lube is an excellent idea because it doesn't dry as quickly as water-based lube. 

With a silicone lube, your ass will be a slippery slope to Fun Town.

2) Easier Penetration

As we said before, the asshole doesn't self lubricate, and having something inserting in the ass without any proper lubrication can hurt like a motherf- 

Silicone-based lube is good for anal sex because the skin doesn't absorb it, and this means a well-lubricated inertion that is pure pleasure and not pure pain.

3) The wetter, the better

If you want to have shower sex, hot tub sex, or pool sex, silicone lubes are just what you need because of their quality of being hydrophobic. This quality means they will never mix with water.

Just remember to clean up all the excess lube on the floor, or you might be telling an embarrassing story in the ER later.

4) Not as messy as you might think

People complain that silicone lube is hard to clean, but it's not as messy as other lubes. Silicone-based lube is thick, so it'll stay where you apply it and won't spill from your body to your bed sheets or floor.

Besides, since it lasts longer, you need to apply it fewer times than other kinds of lube; fewer applications mean fewer chances of spilling lube.

5) It is a good moisturizer

Some silicone lubes include other healthy ingredients that are also good for your skin, such as vitamin E. 

If you use these kinds of premium lube, you'll see how your bum will start to feel smooth and moisturized (and ready for a second round).

6) More hours of slippery fun

While water-based lube evaporates and absorbs into the skin, silicone lube stays on your body for as long as you want to. 

So, you and your man can go and go without needing to re-apply lube as much as you would with water-based lube.

7) Free of weird ingredients

You might think otherwise, but many silicone-based lubes have more natural ingredients and are free of other preservatives and chemicals present in some water- and oil-based lubes. 

Some of these chemicals and ingredients can affect the natural pH of the anus, making it more susceptible to infections.

No more mood killers

8) No more mood killers

Who likes to be interrupted on the brink of orgasm? If you're used to water-based lube, then you know that every once in a while, you need to stop from the delicious love-making to reach for that bottle and re-apply lube on both cock and ass.

Since silicone lube lasts much longer, this doesn't happen as often, and you can go non-stop until you cum!

9) Less is more

Silicone-based lube can be more expensive than other kinds of lube, but it's worth it. Their quality to last longer implies that it's slippery for more time. Sometimes you'll just need just a tiny drop to get the job done.

Meanwhile, using water-based lube will require you to soak your bits in lube like it's gravy.

10) It is a multipurpose lube

Besides the fact that the vitamins and natural ingredients that many silicone lube brands include, there's the fact that you can use it for other purposes aside from anal sex. 

For example, you can use it to do your hair or apply it to your skin to avoid chafing while doing sports. Thanks to its durability, you can apply it at home, and that bottle doesn't need to leave your room.

Silicone Lube Do's and Don'ts

Silicone Lube Do's and Don'ts 

Yeah, there are multiple advantages to using Silicone Lube, but still, there are some preconceived ideas about this marvelous substance. Here's a list of things you should do and you should avoid:

Do use silicone lube for anal sex. This is highly recommended because of its durability and comfort. Silicone lube also reduces skin tears and friction, and this lowers the risks of infections.

Don't use it with silicone-made toys. We have this idea that silicone lube will melt our silicone sex toys, and it won't. However, it'll change its structure; it'll make them swell and deteriorate its surface. With time, lube will start penetrating the toy's surface, making it ground for bacteria to grow.

Do use it with toys made from hard materials such as glass, stainless steel, ABS plastic, and even wood or stone. It is perfectly safe, and your toys will feel great with it.

Don't panic if you swallow some silicone lube. If you get carried away and want to suck your man's dick after he put it in your ass, and you taste the lube, know that it is entirely non-toxic, and your body will not absorb it. Keep in mind that most silicone-based lubes taste like plastic, except for some quality items that are tasteless. If you want tasty flavored lubes, try water-based lube brands.

Do use silicone-based lube for sex in the shower. Since it's not water-soluble, you don't have to worry about water increasing friction; all you need to focus on is hot, steamy, wet sex with your guy (or guys if they fit in your shower).

Don't forget to use it with condoms. Silicone lube is compatible with latex and polyisoprene condoms. So, if you go for safe sex, silicone lube is the right choice for you.

Frequently asked questions about silicone lube.

Now, if you're still not sure about using this kind of lube, here's a small list of frequently asked questions to finish dissolving your doubts:

It'll depend entirely on the brand in question. The thicker the lube is, the harder it'll be to clean up, especially from the fabrics of your clothes and bedsheets, but they're also hard to wash from your skin since it doesn't absorb it.

There are luxury brands of lube that will dissipate when it's not being manipulated, and your skin will end up feeling smooth and free of sticky sensations.

If you want to clean silicone lube from your skin, wipe as much as you can with toilet paper or baby wipes, and then wash the rest with soap and warm water.

If you had sex in the shower or bath tube or some lube ended up on the floor, clean it up as soon as possible, or you'll know how it feels in real life when someone steps on a banana peel in Mario Kart.

If you want to remove lube stains from your sheets, you can use dishwashing liquid on the spot and then wash it with grease-fighting detergent. Don't put other things in the washer with your sheets, or the stain might pass from one to the other. Do not dry your sheets under the sun, or the stain will set more.

Is silicone lube safe and healthy?

Silicone lube is considered hypoallergenic, so it's less likely to cause an allergic reaction than other kinds of lube can. However, every skin is different, and they react in different ways to the same substances.

If you've had an allergic reaction with other lubes, you'll probably benefit by changing to using silicone-based. These only affect a small percentage of people, so probably you have nothing to worry about. Still, like with any other personal care product, there's a chance you might get a reaction or skin irritation from using silicone lube.

If you're concerned about getting a silicone lube reaction, always check the ingredients list on the bottle or manufacturer's website. This way, you can be sure it doesn't contain anything harmful to you before you buy it, especially if you already know about ingredients that give you allergic reactions or if you have sensitive skin.

You can always do a patch test on different parts of your body to ensure you won't get a reaction. You can start with your wrist or inner elbow and then proceed to the outer skin of your dick or anus.

Which is the best silicone lube for you?

Which is the best silicone lube for you?

The best lube for you will depend on your preference, so here are some things you can consider:

  • What's your budget?: An excellent silicone-based lube will cost you around $10-$30, so you first need to decide how much you're willing to spend on it.
  • Is it thick enough?: The thicker it is, the longer it'll last, so you don't need to re-apply, but remember that it'll be also harder to clean.
  • What's its viscosity?: A good lubricant needs to have a high consistency to not create friction against and heat against condoms.
  • What are your plans?: Some silicone lubes are made especially for anal sex. Look for those brands if those are your plans. They should have a high viscosity and be thicker to be extra slippery.
  • Do you have sensitive skin?: If you do, you'll prefer to avoid lubes with ingredients like propylene, glycol, glycerine, paraben, and petroleum. Check the ingredients before buying.
  • Are your sex toys silicone-made?: If you have a vast arsenal of sex toys you like using on your own or with a partner, and most of them are made of silicone, then you need to stick to water-based lube. If your sex toys are made of metal, glass, or other rigid materials, then silicone lube is for you.
