Why is Lube so Important in Gay Sex

Lubrication is important for sex in general, but it is even more important when it comes to gay sex. Lube is a gay man’s best friend when it comes to exciting and easy sliding gay sex, but lube can come in a few different types and can be used in different ways.

Anal sex is the most amazing pleasure, but without lube, it can be painful and awkward. If you have had a painful gay sex experience it is probably because you weren’t using the right type of lube or were not using enough of this slippery little helper!

There are 3 Main Types of Lube for Gay Sex

The three main types of lube for gay sex are silicone based lubes, water based lubes and oil based lubes. They all feel a little different, should be used in different scenarios and for different types of gay sex.

  1. Silicone lubes are longer lasting has a thicker consistency than any of the other lubes making it the perfect partner for gay sex. The extra thickness and body in the silicone-based lube helps things slide and insert freely stopping any friction. As silicone-based lubes don’t contain water they are also longer lasting as the water is not absorbed so you can pound away for longer without the need to reapply. The only problem with silicone based lubes is that they don’t play so well with sex toys so have another type handy for your sex toy playtimes.
  2. Because your ass is really absorbent water based lubes disappear quite quickly and so have to be reapplied lots. This can make anal sex a bit of a pain in the butt so check your lube before you bend over for your lover. However, they can be used with your gay sex toys so having two types of lubes to hand depending on your mood or whom you are with is a good idea. Water based lubes are also less sticky, less messy and don’t irritate sensitive skin.
  3. Oil based lubes are difficult to use if you like your sheets as they can stain and mark them. Oil based lubes like olive oil and coconut oil can taste and smell nice tho! Importantly oil based lubes shouldn’t be used with condoms.

Lubes for Different Types of Gay Sex

Flavoured lubes or oil based lubes are the best for oral – because the taste good! For masturbation silicone is best unless you are using a gay sex toy that the silicone lube will damage. For long sessions use a silicone based lube as you won’t have to reapply as often as water based lubes and for large butt plugs or fisting, use as much lube as you can!
