Lubes to live by – TapDat recommends

Lubricants to live by

It’s better when it’s wetter…

We all know that no matter what you’re getting upto between the sheets, a good lick of lube makes the whole thing just that much better. From making sure it’s all natural and caring for your most intimate places, long lasting for all nighters (or day-ers…we recommend both), to ensuring that your lube takes care of your favourite sex toys while they take care of you, ensuring you have the right lube for your needs is essential to maximum pleasure. And we are all about achieving maximum pleasure!

And because we’re always doing the most for our TapDat members, we’re here to test, rate and recommend the very best lubes on the market.

Ingredients matter

From protecting your PH, to ensuring only the most natural and sustainable ingredients touch your intimates, the contents of your lube bottle are important. No matter what your lube preference, we know that there’s a natural alternative to help you slide into pleasure and feel better about what you’re putting inside your body. The market is packed with some of the most incredible natural lubes.

Here’s our pick of the best ‘good for you’ lubricants:

Don’t wreck your toys

Let’s be honest, sex toys are key to reaching new levels of sexual exploration. Whether you’re enjoying your toys by yourself, or sharing the fun with others, taking care of your bedside table besties is key to a long and happy relationship. So it’s important that you take care of them. Almost all of your favourite toys are silicon based, and can’t be used with silicon based lubes. So show your toys some love and get them premium water based lubricants to enhance the pleasure. It’s a win-win.
