If you and your partner are looking for ways to enhance your bedroom experience, incorporating lubricants and oils is the perfect way to go. Not only do they literally make things go smoothly — especially during anal and vaginal sex — but they also just make everything more fun! A good rule of thumb when shopping is to avoid sugars, parabens, and glycerins. These ingredients may cause irritation and/or infection, and there’s nothing sexy about that. See some of our favorite high-quality picks that deserve to be in your rotation ASAP.


Intimate Earth Aromatherapy Massage Oil


Set the mood with some candles and opt for a massage night in with Intimate Earth oils. With each scent delivering a different effect, you can tailor your intimate massage to exactly how you and your partner want it. Whether you want to relax with lemongrass and coconut or feel invigorated with fresh orange and wild ginger, Intimate Earth has the perfect aroma for you. This silky smooth formula moisturizes and glides, allowing for uninterrupted relaxation all night long. It’s the perfect way to up the romance and introduce a little pre-foreplay action.




Finally, a lube with a discreet and elevated look that you could leave displayed on your nightstand. Uberlube is a silicone lubricant that’s long-lasting and gentle on the skin. A little goes a long way, making this water-resistant formula perfect for shower sex and anal. If you and your partner are looking for a lube that lasts as long as you do, this is the way to go!


Kama Sutra Ignite Massage Candle


A massage oil and candle all in one. Fill the bedroom with scents of coconut pineapple, sweet almond, or island passion berry. Kama Sutra Ignite candles serve as a beautiful home decor piece by day, and a sexy massage oil by night. Each candle melts into a moisturizing formula of coconut oil, shea butter, and vitamin E, that leaves your skin feeling unbelievably soft. Plus, it burns at a low temperature, so that you and your partner can heat things up without harm.


Sliquid Swirl


There’s nothing more fun than a lickable lube. Sliquid Swirl lubricants are natural and water-based, which means you and your partner don’t ever have to pause playtime to wipe the formula off. With subtle flavors like strawberry pomegranate and green apple tart, oral sex has never been tastier. Not to mention that they’re glycerin and paraben free, making them safe for sensitive skin.

JO Gelato


Like its name suggests, JO Gelato flavored lubricants are inspired by desserts, like salted caramel and tiramisu. Designed to enhance foreplay and oral sex, each water-based formula is made with quality ingredients that are sugar, paraben, and propylene glycol free. Enjoy the fun without an after-taste or sticky residue.
