You may already know to select water-based lube for use with silicone sex toys and latex condoms, or use oil-based for anal or longer sessions with a partner, but equally important aspects to consider are whether your chosen sexual lubricant contains suspected carcinogens parabens, or glycerin which is sugary and has the potential to provoke thrush – especially since it’s likely to be employed during a vigorous sex session.
Secondary to these aspects come smell and taste, as there’s nothing worse than a mouthful of unpalatable chemicals midway through a steamy session. Happily, ‘smooth ♥ sensual’ newcomer Licx is inoffensive to the nose and scores highly as it’s palatable too. In fact, it’s a great all-rounder for a general use, and although it does dry quickly a drop of water will soon reinvigorate its intended slipperiness.
In Cliterati’s selfless quest for a decent lube, alarming skin rashes have ensued from the testing of lubricants designed to ‘stimulate or ‘excite’, so we tend to steer well clear of these and deliberately haven’t tested any from the Licx brand. However, if you did fancy trying a non-standard stimulant they have made an Arousal Gel for your delectation, and better still there’s a Licx Mix For Her box set comprising a taster of two sachets of said gel, along with two of Cream lube (containing parabens), Gel lube (paraben-free) and some special intimate wipes. There’s also a Travel Licx mix for naughty weekends away. Smooth and sensual indeed….
