The Benefits of Using Lube

What are the benefits of using lube? At Intimate Wellbeing, we wholeheartedly believe that personal lubricant is essential for comfortable and pleasurable sexual activity. It's why we created our very own signature product, Okanagan Joy. Personal lubricant offers numerous benefits for women including:

Enhancing comfort: Personal lubricants can reduce friction and provide a smooth, comfortable experience during sexual activities. It can help reduce irritation or discomfort caused by dryness or inadequate natural lubrication.

Increasing sensitivity: Personal lubricants can increase sensitivity and enhance sexual pleasure by making intimate activities smoother and more comfortable.

Making sex more enjoyable: Using personal lubricants can make sex more enjoyable and exciting by allowing couples to experiment with new positions and techniques.

Helping with Medical Conditions: Personal lubricants can benefit people experiencing vaginal dryness or who have undergone radiation therapy or chemotherapy.

Using with Sex Toys: Personal lubricants can help with easy penetration when using sex toys, making the experience more enjoyable.

Increasing spontaneity: Using lube can help to make sex more spontaneous, as there is no need to wait for natural lubrication to occur.

More Likelihood of Orgasm: Research has shown that the benefits of using lube include increased likelihood of having an orgasm. In a study published in the Journal of Sexual Medicine, researchers found that women who used lubricant during sexual activity reported higher levels of sexual pleasure, satisfaction, and orgasm compared to those who did not use a lubricant.

Specifically, the study found that women who used lubricant during sex were 85% more likely to achieve orgasm compared to women who did not use a lubricant. The study also found that using lubricant can help to reduce discomfort or pain during sexual activity, which can in turn lead to increased sexual pleasure and satisfaction.

There are many different types of lubricants available, so it's important to choose one that is compatible with your body and preferences.

Many people have the misconception that they don't need lube and there is often the thought that using it means there is something wrong with us. So untrue.

As Dr. Carolin Klein, Registered Psychologist, says "we can't assume anything about how turned on a woman is based on the presence or absence of lubrication." How wet or dry a vagina is has nothing to do with how turned on you are. Using lube enhances your sensual experience!

We offer many kinds of personal lube, including our water-based, natural, made in Canada, Okanagan Joy. Shop for it here.
