A recent article in the New York Post has indicated that Wigg Laboratories has obtained kosher certification for its “Wet” brand of lubricants. This new certification will enhance the sexual experience for those who have strict standards with their lubricants and would prefer ingredients that meet their specifications.
The fact that lubricants are continuing to be improved and adapted is a testament to the increasing awareness that it’s normal to have unique preferences when it comes to sexual satisfaction. Unfortunately, when it comes to lubricants there are many misconceptions, including the following:
If you are really attracted to someone then you shouldn’t need to use lubricant. False! You can be turned on, totally in the moment, enjoying your partner, but still need some extra moisture. There are many factors that affect a woman’s lubrication, such as stress, medication, medical problems, hormones, caffeine intake and water intake. Thus, lack of lubrication doesn’t necessarily mean there is a lack of chemistry.
Lubricants are for “old people”. People of all ages use lubricant.
All lubricants are the same. There are many different types of lubricants out there, and it can take some trial and error to figure out what works for you. Click here for more information on the nuances in lubricant ingredients.
There are two types of people; those who always need a lubricant and those who never do. While there are some people who always need to use a lubricant and some that never do, there are many people in the middle who may need it sometimes. Or they may need it at certain periods of their lives more than others.
The reality is that lubricant use is common and normal. With healthy discussion around sexual functioning, people will feel more comfortable exploring ways to enhance their satisfaction, and not feel ashamed to explore options that will aid their experience.
