Durex Warming Lube 100ml
About this deal
A “warming” lubricant or oil ( see our selection here) contains minty or peppery ingredients, which increase sensation and stimulate circulation in genitals before and during sex, with or without a personal vibrator. Choose a product carefully, with attention to ingredients that you may know are irritants to you or your partner, and from a source you trust. Keeping oil-based products out of the vagina is important for good vaginal health, so if you plan to have intercourse during your intimacy, opt for water-based instead of oil-based products for both you and your partner.
You might wanna stay away from certain ingredients if you're prone to yeast infections. Why? Any time you add something to the already-delicate balance of bacteria in the vagina, you are at risk of changing the environment which could increase your risk of infection, adds Dr. Arianna Sholes-Douglas, MD, of Tula Wellness and Aesthetics. Dr. Brandye says that while warming lubes don’t specifically increase your risk of getting a vaginal infection, lubes containing honey or glycerin may increase the chances of getting a yeast infection, so it’s best to stay away from those if you fall into this category. Test a small amount on yourself. Warming products are designed to create a reaction, but too much reaction can be distinctly uncomfortable! To make sure you don't have extra sensitivity, test a small amount on yourself when you're not planning penetration first.
Silicone: Don't contain any water or oils, last longer and are less likely to cause irritation. However, they are more expensive and aren't ideal for lower-grade silicone sex toys.
Warming it up between two palms isn’t effective, since the lube breaks down and your hands absorb the product. Which is perfectly fine…if you want well-lubricated fingers.You may have seen lubes advertised as being “warming” before, but what exactly does that mean and why is it a selling point? Aside from the potential “no thanks” of ice-cold lube hitting your skin as you’re getting it in, the warming effect of lube can increase blood flow to the area, waking up nerve endings, and making the area more responsive to touch, as Dr. Brandye, MD, a board certified OBGYN and women’s sex and pleasure coach at LifeLoveLibido explains. There's good reason for the expression, "in the heat of the moment." And a lonely tube of lube, languishing in a nightstand drawer can be colder than cold —and certainly colder than room temperature. Experiment with placement. Warming oils can be used on a woman’s external genitalia, applied from the top of your labia, over the clitoral hood, inside and outside the inner labia, including the vestibule (the entryway to the vagina). Some women like to include their perineum and anus. And some like to use warming fluids on their nipples. Men may like warming fluids on sensitive parts of their bodies, too.
Test out the lube on non-genital areas first. Try applying a bit to an area like your nipples or lips, as Dr. Brandye suggests, adding: that afterwards, “if you don’t have any bad reactions or discomfort, then you can move to using it on the genital area.”
