How to Use Lubricant With Your Clit Sucker

When it comes to sex, wetter is usually always better. Whether you’re enjoying a party of one, two, or five, lubricants minimize friction and maximize pleasure. According to an Indiana University study, 70% of women enjoy sex a lot more with lubricants. The same can be said for self-love as well — lubricants minimize friction, considerably improving the quality of your orgasm, and how fast you can actually climax.

However, when it comes to sex toys, you may have some concerns about lubricants. Different sex toy materials are compatible with different lubricants, and you need to use them correctly. If you don’t get the right gel, or use it correctly, you may damage your precious clitoral suction toy.

Do I Need To Use Lube With My Clitoral Toys?

In typical sexual encounters, clitoral-owning individuals produce natural lubrication as a part of the arousal process, which is your body’s way of preparing for the encounter. Natural lubrication often takes some time and depends on natural arousal. By the time you’re done with the seduction and foreplay, you may be naturally lubricated to receive your partner.

However, the same can’t be said for sex toys. When using clitoral sex toys, you often skip past the foreplay and seduction, moving directly into the penetrative and suction aspects of the encounter. As such, if you’re not mentally prepared or aroused yet, you may not have enough natural lubrication to ensure optimal comfort and pleasure. Read this article to understand how to properly use your clit suction vibe.

Some of the best clitoral suckers are made of high-quality body-safe silicone, so they have a soft, squishy, and ribbed texture designed to minimize friction anyway, and better replicate what could be described as good oral sex. As such, if you get a premium body-safe silicone sex toy, you can even continue masturbating without lubrication. But if the sex toy’s quality is anything less than perfect, you may feel friction and a chafing sensation, increasing your risk of blisters. Sometimes, knowing when to stop can be a blessing.

That’s why you must use a good-quality lubricant with your clitoral suckers like Biird’s Obii — they minimize friction, ensure safety, and enhance pleasure. 

What Are The Best Types of Lubricants For Clit Suckers?

You can find several types of lubricants for sex toys. You should choose a lubricant with a base that’s compatible with your sex toy. If you don’t get the appropriate gel, you may inadvertently damage your sex toy’s body or material. Generally speaking, lubricants for sex toys come in the following bases — water, silicone, oil, or natural.

Water-Based Lubricants

Water-based lubes are often called “versatile” lubes because they’re suitable for all purposes. You can use them with all types of sex toy materials, including body-safe silicone sex toys. You can also use water-based lubes with latex and non-latex condoms. These are easy to wash off, and they’re easy on the skin. All things considered, water-based lubricants are widely considered the best types of lubes for use with sex toys. The only issue is that you may have to repeatedly reapply the lube because they wear off faster than most.

Silicone-Based Lubricants

Silicone-based lubricants are ideal for those who have extremely sensitive skin and need something stronger than water. Silicone lubes are hypoallergenic, so there’s no risk of an allergic reaction. Silicone lubes are also great for those who use sex toys while showering or bathing because it doesn’t easily wash away under the water. However, silicone-based lubes can damage silicone sex toys, so you shouldn’t use them with silicone clitoral sex toys, which is most of them.

Oil-Based Lubricants

Oil-based lubes are stronger and more durable than all other types of lubes, making them perfect for those who want to go on without applying more lube. Once is enough. However, oil-based lubricants increase your risk of yeast infections, and they may also deteriorate your sex toys’ quality. Furthermore, oil-based lubricants shouldn’t be used with condoms because they weaken the latex, increasing the risk of a tear.

Natural/Pure Lubricants

In recent years, people have been experimenting with natural lubes made of coconut oil, aloe extracts, and other materials. However, natural lubricants increase your risk of yeast infections and condom breakage. Furthermore, natural lubricants also have a distinct odor, and they may stain your sheets.

Are There Any Lubricant Bases I Should Avoid?

You should be extremely careful when selecting a lubricant, not just because it may damage your sex toy’s body but also because it can lead to infections. A healthy vagina should always maintain a pH value ranging from 3.5 to 4.5. Lubricants that affect that pH balance can lead to irritation, inflammation, and infections.

Ideally, you should avoid lubes that include paraben, glycerin, petroleum, propylene glycol, chlorhexidine gluconate, or nonoxynol-9. These are all potentially-harmful substances that increase your risk of vaginal infections.

How To Apply and Use Lubricants?

After choosing the right type of lubricant, one that’s compatible with your clitoral sex toy, you can settle down and start using it. Start by applying the lube over the toy’s body, and rub some around your clitoris. Apply lubricant generously, ensuring there’s no friction when the sex toy penetrates your vagina. Whenever the lubricant dries off, take the time to reapply some more, and continue. Repeat this process — reapplying lube as and when necessary — as long as it takes to orgasm.

How To Clean The Clit Sucker After Use?

After you orgasm, you must clean the clitoral suction vibe, removing all traces of the lubricant, before keeping it aside. If you don’t clean your toy, your bodily fluids and the remnant lubricant may gradually corrode or damage the toy’s body.

You can wash the clitoral sex toy under lukewarm water, using a normal fragrance-free soap. You can also purchase an anti-bacterial sex toy cleaner, i.e., a solution specifically designed to remove lubricants and bodily fluids from your sex toys, sanitizing them completely.
