Lube: Do's and Don't's

Lube can be a great addition to sex. When used with condoms, lube increases pleasure for both partners and decreases the risk of condom breakage. Most pharmacies and supermarkets (including the UT College of Pharmacy's Forty Acres Pharmacy) carry lube.

The three main types of lube are:

  • rinses off easily from skin and fabric
  • cheaper and easier to find than silicone-based lube
  • lasts longer than water-based lube
  • best for anal sex
  • usually a water-based lube with flavor added, often contains sugar
  • best for oral sex, especially when using a condom
