Does lube make sex feel better?
This was the exact question we got in the mail right after we published our best flavored edible lubes for oral sex.
For a moment, we were taken aback. Then, after a while, we became confused: we had spent healthy man hours reviewing the best personal lubricants for giving head and someone emailed us right away asking if ‘wetness’ actually contributes to great sex?!
Then, we got yet another query via our contact page asking more or less the same thing.
It was at this point that we knew that the question of whether or not lube actually makes sex feel better is one that truly bothers our readers and honestly deserves a special article on its own.
There and then, the decision to pen down this entry was reached.
But first, we wanted to know why many of our readers couldn’t work around this on their own. To publish a truly comprehensive article, we actually asked some of those who had posed the initial question why they asked in the first place.
Outlined below is the summary of the answers we got; this also summarizes the reasons why you are interested in the answers here.

Reasons For The Ignorance Of The Role Lube Plays In Sexual Relations
Carefully summarized below are the various reasons many of our readers gave for seeking out the fact of whether or not lubrication makes sex feel any better.
Our guess is that, these may also be your reasons – in which case, you’ll understand that you’re not alone in the business of seeking answers to challenges that bother you.
In the rare event that these reasons are not yours too (or do not even resonate with you for that matter), you’ll at least learn something new in the world of sex and human sexuality.
Topping the list of the reasons many readers of this website wondered if lube actually contributes to great sex is virginity – the reality of not having had any sexual experience in life at all.
Virgins are generally inexperienced so far as the business of making love is concerned. This inexperience translates to curiosity and doubts, mostly about what others who are no longer exactly new in the business of making love know and experience almost on instinct.
It is thus not surprising that this group of persons top this list.
Right next after the virgins, the generally inexperienced folks follow.
These group of persons are no longer virgins; however, they have little experience with sex and in the sexual department that they need help with issues like this.
Usually, this happens as a result of just being inducted into the sexual business, having sex very infrequently or generally, not giving a damn about sex enough to notice anything or make deductions in that regard.
Fear Of Foreign Bodies On (Or In) One’s Intimate Parts
There are also those who are mortally afraid of using products on their intimate parts or generally, inserting foreign bodies into same.
This category of readers are generally not interested in anything sexual if it does not directly contribute to the enhancement of sexual pleasure.
However, if there is shown to be a relationship between something, say a product like lube for instance, enhancing sexual pleasure, these category of readers are ready to give it a try – despite the fear of foreign bodies they have, a fear which haunts them perpetually.
Allergic Reaction To Some Products
Finally, the very last reason why some of our readers here were bothered about the issue of lube and how it affects the quality of sex is that they are allergic to some products and like the category directly above this one, will only consider same if assured that it will substantially improve the quality of coitus.
Does Lube Make Sex Feel Better?
Having covered the various categories of persons who are usually interested in this question (and ultimately, its answer, it is about time to answer the question, ‘does lube make sex feel better?’
The answer to the question is simple and straight to the point: YES. lubrication makes sex feels way better!
However, it goes well beyond making sex feel better: it is the means to great sex and it is impossible to imagine any sort of pleasurable sexual experience without lube playing an active part.
Now, let’s see how exactly this is achieved.

How Lube Makes Sex Feel Better
It is not for the fun of it that a fully aroused woman becomes wet and slick, producing natural lubrication from her vagina.
It is also not in vain that almost all men secrete a clear, colorless liquid (called pre-cum) just after a hard and turgid erection.
The reason (as you may have already guessed), is to ease the passage of the penis right into the vagina and importantly, to make the process both painless and enjoyable.
Unfortunately, not all women are capable of lubrication all the time. Likewise, not all men produce pre-cum every time, before sexual congress.
It is in such instances that the next best thing, over the counter lubrication, is employed to ease the right of passage.
The question now is, how exactly does this take place? Put differently, how does lube actually makes for great sex (since we have already concurred that it, infact, does)?
Lube Tackles Vagina Dryness
Before penetration can (successfully) occur, the vagina needs to be able to handle the situation. This is made possible by the natural lubrication process of the body – which happens when a woman is sexually aroused.
Unfortunately, it is all the time that a woman is sexually aroused that the vagina produces this natural lubrication. Drugs, menopause, anxiety and a plethora of other reasons can stop (or delay) the secretion of this natural vagina lubrication even when a woman is ready and willing to have sex.
When this happens, penetration can be exceedingly painful and can be likened to attempting intercourse with a virgin or in the worst case scenario, attempting rape.
Aside from being painful, it can seriously bruise a woman’s genitals and in some rare cases, cause pain, bleeding and a general difficulty in walking afterwards.
This can be arrested with the simple application of an over-the-counter lubrication to the woman’s genitals some moments before the initial penetration is achieved.
This makes the passage to the pussy sleek and soft, accommodating the penis that classically follows suit.
Lubrication Stops Penis Chaffing
As much as sex is rough on the vagina when there isn’t adequate lubrication, the penetrating penis too isn’t spared when unlubricated sex is attempted.
Penetrating a woman who is not properly moist poses the risk of chaffing one’s penis and in some instances, getting injured in the process.
All other things being equal, having sex with a woman who isn’t properly lubed means signing up to the same pains and difficulties she herself is subjected to.
This is where lubrication bought from the open market comes in…at least as far as avoiding a chaffed penis is concerned after the pleasure has died down 🙂
Lube Ensures Smooth Penetration & Thrusting
Further, one of the ways which lube ensures great sex is the fact of making the very act of sex itself easy. This is achieved by paving way for a smooth penetration and thrusting experience which ultimately translates to an ultimately smooth sex experience.
When lube is in action, even an over-endowed man can easily penetrate a petite woman and glide in and out with majestic passion!
Lubrication Makes Oral Sex Truly Fun
Finally, lubrication ensures great and fun-filled oral sex.
This is how it plays out: oral sex is in a league of its own, capable of ensuring heights of pleasure one who has not yet partaken of it can only imagine.
However, laced with edible, good-tasting lube, oral sex shoots its fun levels for both the man and the woman involved; it is actually the ultimate ecstasy for both the giver and givee.
As can be seen above, lubrication does not only make sex feel better – it is the difference between awesome sex and some sloppy insertion of the penis into the vagina.
Next time you are about to lay someone (or get laid), be certain that your natural lubrication is in top gear.
However, if it is not, you certainly should get a special option formulated for this purpose to make things fun, sleek and super smooth!
