Sexual lubricant

A sexual lubricant (or masturbation lubricant) is a lubricant used to increase pleasure or reduce pain during sexual activity.

Warning: not all lubricants are compatible with latex condoms. Oil-based lubricants such as Vaseline (TM) should never be used with latex condoms, since they may reduce the effectiveness of latex condoms as a contraceptive and protection against disease like AIDS. Water-based lubricants may be used with latex condoms, but oil-based lubricants must be avoided since they weaken the latex. Polyurethane is a non-latex alternative for condoms. If the woman's vagina is at all dry, water-based lubricant should be used to reduce the abrasion on the condom.

Silicone-based sexual lubricants are incompatible with, and may cause damage to, silicone-based sex toys.

Lubricants intended for sexual purposes include:

Other substances improvised as sexual lubricants:
  • moisturizing body lotion[?]
  • Vaseline™
  • cooking oils
  • fruit pulp and other foods

Males and females masturbate differently. As males do not naturally lubricate, many masturbate with the aid of a masturbation lubricant. A lubricant may be used to facilitate the use of certain sex toys, or with females as part of prolonged clitoral stimulation.
