Keep reading to discover the main differences between the two, and which is best suited to your experience and purposes combined.

What’s the difference between water-based lubricants and lotions?

Though it may not seem obvious, these two enthusing emollients are often confused with one another. Differentiating between a water-based lubricant and lotion needn’t be as complicated as it sounds, though. As a general rule of thumb, water-based lotions are best used externally only. Lotions can include many concoctions that are perfectly safe for external skin contact, including helping to reduce any irritating or friction, but aren’t best placed internally. 

Lubricants are far better suited to this purpose, for both vaginal and anal play alike. Using a water-based lube during intercourse will not only reduce potentially painful friction, it’ll allow all parties involved to fully relax and ride the waves of pleasure. They can also be great for pelvic floor stretches, strengthening exercises, and for the introduction of larger sexual toys.

What is a water-based lube?

Unlike their silicone, oil-centred, or natural sensual alternatives, water-based lubes are the most versatile on the market, and can be used in practically any activity you can imagine. They’re safe to use with condoms (both latex and non-latex), and may even lessen the risk of breakage, thanks to reduced tension on the material. Fantastic for vaginal penetration, they help to balance the pH of your insides while diminishing the uncomfortable feeling of resistance or rubbing – bonus! 

Perhaps most popular for its gentle composition, it won’t stain your sheets, is incredibly easy on the skin, and washes off easily in water. In contrast to their oil-based sister products, which can harbour bacteria both on your body and sex toys, water-based lubricants are often recommended if you tend to suffer from UTIs.

Water-based lube FAQs

What type of lube should I get?

When you go shopping for lube, you need to get one that suits you best. The common types of lube are water-, silicone- and oil-based, but you can also find some hybrid variations (mostly made out of water and silicone). If you want to use lube with a silicone sex toy, opt for a water-based variant, as silicone-based lube could deteriorate your toy over time. 

Are there harmful ingredients in water-based lube?

The lube market is big. There are plenty to choose from, from natural to flavoured and even tingling. All in all, lube is great, but it can contain some harmful ingredients. A healthy vagina should have a pH level of 3.5 to 4.5, which means that the lube should be at around the same level. Stay away from the following ingredients: glycerin, nonoxynol-9, petroleum, propylene glycol, chlorhexidine gluconate.

Why should I choose a water-based lube?

Water-based lube is a great all-rounder, as it can be used with silicone toys, as well as sensitive body parts. It's safe to use with condoms and can even decrease the risk of condom breakage. Not only that, it can also help to balance the pH of the vagina and reduces friction, making for a far more comfortable, pleasurable experience. Even better, it won't stain your sheets and it’s very easy on the skin.

How should I use water-based lube?

There is no real right or wrong way to use lube. Just spread it wherever you want - vagina, penis, anus, or even a sex toy! If you use a condom, use an alternative to oil-based lube (water-based, for instance).

Is there something wrong with me if I need lube?

Absolutely not! When it comes to sex, sometimes lube is a must - and this is completely normal! There are many different things that can cause vaginal dryness, from hormonal changes to arousal levels and even what soaps and shower gels you use, so you needn't worry. Besides, lube is made to make sex more enjoyable and comfortable, so there's no shame in using it!
