What’s the deal with silicone lubes?
Well, let’s backtrack a bit… What’s the deal with the different types of lube in general? Whilst this isn’t a breakdown of different lube types as a complete guide, is it important to note that different lubes do different things. Or, more importantly, they serve a specific purpose based on the type of intercourse or sexual activity you’re engaging in.
Well, the main reason is that more traditional lubes can cause issues for anyone who has sensitive skin, or may be prone to reactions from even common (and safe) chemicals encountering their private parts. Lube made from silicone is hypoallergenic, meaning that you’re much less likely to experience levels of discomfort if you have sensitive skin or a history of reacting to more ‘traditional’ lube types.
Anyway, let’s get into ten of the best silicone lube types and why they’re on this list. I’ve also included a detailed guide at the end of this breakdown which details what beginners new to buying silicone lube need to be aware of.

How to Use Silicone Lubes?
Silicone-Based Lubes come in different shapes and sizes and tend to achieve different things, from vaginal dryness aids to flavored
lube for oral play. Whatever it is for, these silicone lubes have you covered, literally!
You can use lube not just on your body but also on other things. For example, you can use them on:
- Condoms – to give extra lubricant for penetration or getting the condom on.
- Sex toys – to help get them inside you comfortably and without hassle.
- Clothing – if you have any fetish clothing like restrictive pants or bodysuits, you may need the helping hand of silicone lube to help get them on and off.
Prices vary depending on what sized lubricant and what they offer. For example, the pjur Original Silicone Lubricant 3.4 fl oz is priced at $36.99, whereas the Sliquid Organics Natural Silk Hybrid Lubricant 4.2 fl oz is only priced at $17.99. This can be due to various reasons, from the sizing of the bottle to ingredients and features. Some may have tingling abilities whilst others may be more naturally sustainable, which affects the pricing.
You are also paying for the longevity of the lubricant product, so usually, the bigger the bottle or, the better the ingredients, the higher the price, but the longer it will last.
Just make sure to keep your lubricant products clean of debris or dust, as this can contaminate the contents. If you are using a lubricant on your used toys, wipe the lubricant off so that you are not spreading any bacteria from one toy to another.
It is crucial with lubricant products to ensure you are storing them correctly. This storage includes:
- Make sure the lid or seals are on perfectly,
- The primary packaging isn’t damaged or has any holes,
- Please keep them in a cool, dry place so they last longer,
- Once opened, you use them before the Best Before Date.
Silicone Lubricant is recommended for anyone looking to lather up their sexy time! Whether that is anally, vaginally or external pleasure, silicone lubricant is built to give you a more extended time to have fun without running the risk of drying out or hurting one another.
