If you aren’t using lube, you don’t know what you’re missing. It makes every single thing you could possibly be into in bed, easier. Especially the edible variety (wink, wink). And if you think lubricant is just for the sexually adventurous, the kinky, and the people who also use vibrating, leather items, you’re wrong. In 2015, 17 percent of households in the United States used a personal lubricant. We’re sad for the other 83 percent. Very sad. Lubricant isn’t only for post-menopausal women who fail to produce enough natural moisture down-south, either. Plenty of young, perfectly healthy women struggle to, for lack of a more eloquent term, get wet enough. And that can make sex uncomfortable at best and painful at the worst! So, in case you needed more encouragement to grab some, here are 20 things you didn’t know about lubricant.

No, it’s not. It dries out quickly. You can’t possibly produce as much as you need, as quickly as you need it. And, well, it’s not as pleasant as a lubricant.
