Vaginal lubrication: Uses, benefits, types, and side effects
Vaginal lubrication often occurs naturally during sexual excitement and arousal. Women vary in how much lubrication they produce and the amount of lubrication desired for pleasurable sexual activity — this variation is totally normal. Lubricants can be purchased online or at drugstores, many supermarkets, and sex-toy shops. Photo: Sydney Daoust cc.
There seems to be an incorrect assumption that younger women do not need to use lubrication, and if they do, they have a problem. People use a variety of weird substances as lubricants, but the right kind can make a huge difference. From buying the most expensive, all-singing, all-dancing sex toy to swinging from the ceiling whilst dressed as Wonder Woman, people experiment with the most bizarre treatments and devices to improve their sex lives.
The vagina naturally produces lubrication that helps facilitate sexual activity. If natural lubrication is not enough, people can use artificial lubricant, or lube, to make sexual activity more comfortable. When a person becomes sexually aroused, their vagina produces extra lubrication. This lubrication reduces friction in the vagina, increasing comfort during sex and minimizing any feelings of soreness or irritation. However, vaginal dryness is a very common sexual issue.
