Don't be afraid of safe sex

Do you feel that condoms reduce your sexual sensation? Here are some tips on how to keep it safe and sexy.

If you’re planning to use lubricant, make sure it’s water-based. Oil-based lubricant can damage latex condoms, leaving you vulnerable to sexually transmitted diseases and pregnancy.

Flesh to flesh?

Before putting on your or his condom, put a bit of water-based lubricant inside it. The squishy lubricant will create a flesh-to-flesh sensation. Don’t use too much though, or the condom could slip off.

A tasty mouthful

Add flavour based lubricant on the outside of the condom to make oral sex tastier.

Why is wetter better?

Plenty of lubrication reduces the risks of small tears that can be the result of too much friction while having sex. These tiny tears around the vagina or the anus provide openings for all kinds of STDs. So, lubrication makes sex not just more fun, but also safer!
