#3. Reduces the risk of condom breakage: If you're using protection, you're actually going to make your condoms even safer by using lube - they reduced friction creates more of a smooth and controlled motion that will prevent any worrying breakages whether you're with a long term partner or with someone new.
#4. It makes sex naughtier: Using lube during foreplay, with sex toys, as well as flavoured lubes during oral sex can be a complete game-changer when it comes to introducing some excitement into the bedroom.

#9. With a condom: It's common practice to use lube on the outside of a condom, but did you know you can also use it on the inside too? A dab of lube next to the skin will make wearing a condom more of a stimulating experience, giving you all the benefits that your partner loves as well.
