Recently, Amelia called me while she was on a date. Yes, WHILE she was on a date. She was experiencing her first encounter with vaginal dryness and panicked! Personally, I’ve had the problem on and off for years so I always have lube handy. I told Amelia that it wasn’t an unusual problem and that she should consider buying some lube. She wasn’t sold on the idea and kept saying that this wasn’t something that happened to her. Well, hasn’t it happened to all of us at least once?
Vaginal dryness can be caused by a number of reasons, not only that you aren’t aroused. We all read about “getting wet”, “gushing”, “dripping”, etc., that doesn’t mean it happens every. single. time. I can be reading extremely hot erotica and be dry as the Sahara.( But I could be fantasizing at work and suddenly become very wet!) It happens. Hormonal changes as we age can contribute to dryness as can emotional state, mental state, alcohol consumption, childbirth, chemotherapy and/or radiation, allergy and cold medications, some anti-depressants (Hmmm …) and douching. There is also a medical condition called Sjogern’s syndrome, an autoimmune disorder that attacks cells in the body that produce moisture. If you have continued and severe vaginal dryness, consult a doctor.
Using lubrication isn't always for vaginal dryness, it's just something that it can be used for. Lube, in general, is a good thing to have, regardless of your moisture production. I have tried quite a few lubricants with varied results. FASCINATIONS sent me some Silky Supreme WET Naturals lube to try and review a couple of weeks ago and I believe I’ve found a lube I LOVE!
Here’s the tech stuff ~ Silky Supreme is a silicone based lube which means it cannot be used with silicone toys. Anything else is okay. It comes in a 3.1 oz squeeze bottle that is not totally unattractive. Glycerin, paraben and sugar free. Contains Vitamin E and will stay wet even under water! It’s odorless and colorless.
My first test was with dildo. I like the silky feel of the lube when I rubbed some on the toy. The product has the perfect amount of slip and glide, which also makes it nice for massage if you're so inclined. (Given the viscosity of the lube, I also think it would be perfect for anal sex.) It’s not greasy and is very light. I then added a little more to my inner labia and clit. The dildo slid right in and the Silky Supreme stood up to vigorous play with the dildo and with the bullet on my clit, right through to orgasm. Since it’s colorless, there was no staining from any that may have run off during my play session. Clean up was easy for both me and the toys. I didn’t have that “squishy” sensation that some of the heavier lubes leave behind.
The second try out was with a partner. He liked how the Silky Supreme felt as I applied it to his erect penis. It made giving a hand-job lovely! No drag but it allowed for some friction build-up and it lasted right through intercourse without having to apply additional amounts. He was also happy that we only had to use a small amount and that his cock wasn’t sticky (in a bad way!) afterward. He also appreciated the odorless and almost tasteless aspect during his time going down on me.
Wet Naturals Silky Supreme is going to be my first choice in lubes from now on. I'll be trying out the “stays wet in water” claim very soon. I’ll also be looking at FASCINATIONS for the WET water based lubes for one to use with silicone toys.
Amelia will be getting a bottle of this lube from me because while the dryness may be something new to her, I’m pretty sure it won’t be the only time. I really don’t want her calling me up in the middle of a date again because I’m sure THAT may have caused her date some erectile dysfunction but that's a whole other story!
