Are Sensitivities a Concern?

Slippery stuff gel water based lubricant for sex and masturbation great for sensitivities hypoallergenic physician recommended

If very sensitive skin is a concern, skip the silicone based lubrication and go for water based. Make sure the lube doesn’t contain methyl, glycerin, or paraben - like physician recommended Slippery Stuff.  Also, try testing the lube first by applying it to the inside of your forearm or wrist and waiting a day to see if any irritation occurs. 

If yeast infections are a concern, try a lube that contains hemp; as they are known to actually decrease occurrences of yeast infection.


So there you have it! Lube will enhance any sexual experience, and just a little will make playtime awesomely incredible!
