Personal Lubricants are for everyone
We think most people know the general purpose of lube but there seems to be an incorrect assumption that it is only for women who are having problems with their natural lubrication. It doesn’t help matters when Ronda Rousey recently announced in a Maxim Magazine interview, “You should never need lube in your life. If you need lube, then you’re being lazy…”
Much to the bonk teams pleasure, the interweb responded with a tsunami of tweets, comments and posts strongly voicing their disagreement with Ronda’s view, and overwhelming support for use of personal lubricants. Ronda may be one tough cookie in the ring but she gives terrible sex advice, and really has no business telling other people how to get off and well known sex and relationship educator Reid Mihalko agreed saying her advice is akin to “telling massage therapists that using massage oil is being lazy.”
Bonk was started because we recognised the need for a personal lubricant which was certified organic to ensure everyone could easily enjoy a better sex life, and trust that the lube was better for you. Whatever your sexual preferences, gender, age, and even if you consider your sex life to be in pretty good shape, there are many advantages of introducing a good quality personal lubricant so let’s take a moment to put anyone that hasn’t yet discovered the magic of lube straight on a few things (including Ronda).
Sex with lube is good for everyone. That’s lube’s entire purpose. It is solely to make sex feel even better for anyone who pops the top and applies. Lube can also be helpful, sometimes necessary and there is no shame in using it. We have to start creating an open forum around all things sex. There is nothing wrong with sex. There is nothing wrong with you. And there is nothing wrong with using lube.
So get out there – and start bonking!
Lube helps a quickie to actually be quick, a long sensual session of love making to be smooth, and can help you and your partner avoid any post play soreness especially if you’re having sex multiple times. It’s also good for much more than a quick dab just before intercourse – a little lube can bring intensified pleasure, help prolong love-making sessions, make your own masturbation more enjoyable, enhance kinky foreplay and is essential for any kind of anal play or intercourse.
Don’t just believe us –
- A 2013 study of over 2,000 sexually active women aged between 18 and 68 found that 9 out of 10 women find sex or masturbation more pleasurable, more orgasmic and simply better when using lube.
- It’s not just for the ladies – lube makes sex more pleasurable for men too. Having a well-lubricated penis not only enhances pleasure but, can make you last longer and prevent damage or abrasion to the delicate tissues of penis.
- And last but certainly not least, Using the right lube with a condom make sex much safer for all parties.
