We live in a wonderful age for sex. Heck, these days you can even have a dildo delivered right to your door if you want. Soon, Amazon will probably have a drone fly directly into your bedroom for sex toy delivery. So, to enhance your experience in this golden age we're experiencing, I'm here to open your eyes to the wild world of flavored lubes.
Flavored lubes have been around for a long time, but the range of flavors has never been better. Whether you prefer water- or silicone-based lube, there's a lubricant out there in your favorite flavor. Adding flavored lube to the mix is a great way to enhance oral sex and enjoy a tasty treat at the same time.
That being said, you do need to use precautions with flavored lube. Sex educator Carol Queen, PhD told SheKnows that it's important to know the ingredients in your lube. If a flavored lube contains a food item you're allergic to, you might have a reaction to the lube. Queen also warns that, for some, glycerin can be a problem because "it seems to irritate or to encourage yeast infections."
That doesn't mean flavored lube is a ticket to yeast town. But if you have a lube that contains sugar or glycerin, it's best to wash it off after oral sex to avoid potential infections. Generally, flavored lubes should be avoided with penetration, if you want to keep things extra safe.
So, if you're looking to test out something new, give these tasty lubes a try. They might even encourage more oral sex, so that's reason enough to buy a bottle right there.
