Oil based lubricants are a great personal lubricant choice for enhancing sexual pleasure and can be used during masturbation or hand jobs as oil lube is super long lasting, moisturizing, and inexpensive. They are also suitable for long term partners who do not use condoms as a form of contraception as they offer a long lasting smooth effect.
Oil based lubricants aren’t compatible with condoms and many rubber sex toys, as their ingredients can break down the latex. For those not using condoms, oil lube is a great choice for use in the shower or bath as it is compatible with water and will not be washed away. For this same reason it can be quite difficult to clean up afterwards, especially if the lubricant gets on clothing or sheets.
