I have such a hard time attempting to try anything new. *LUBE SNOB over here!*
It’s like when you get that bomb D. SO GOOD. But, you think, “ehh Thug life, I’m going to try something new”. But, it ends up being mediocre or you just want to play the ultimate COMPARISON game. Now, you’re comparing all the pro’s and con’s on D #1 and D #2. But, not really just enjoying the fact that you got some.
This is my exact approach on trying new lubricants. HORRIBLE right? I’m being so close minded! How will I know if anything else out there might rock my socks off? So, since today is day #1 in the year 20-16! New year, new you! Let’s add this to the new addition to your New year’s Resolutions!
Try a new Lube.
Anything! Something New! Even if it’s just a plain water based lubricant, a flavored lube or you might want to get a little daring with a cooling lube! Grab something you normally wouldn’t try or a brand you have eyed down for a while. What do you have to lose? It’s all TRIAL and ERROR anyways.
Below, is my Quick Guide to figuring out what type of lube you need!
Once, you’ve figured that out, get out there! Visit an adult shop!
Many shops carry trial size lubes or smaller bottles, so your wallet doesn’t have a heart attack at how much you might end up spending. They have pillow packs that usually are under $3. This is a great inexpensive way to try a variety of lubes before committing to a bigger bottle. The Pillow packs are great to travel with as well!

My inner geek and fascination with super heroes is in love with the whole branding and packaging for ID Hero Cool Blast. But, my realistic hoity toity side felt the whole look was a bit cheesey. It gave me a sense of false hope that it was more novelty than a real product. Probaly, that’s why it took me so long to take the product seriously to actually give it a try. Which sucks because it ended up being one of my favorite cooling lubes out there.
ID Hero Cool Blast is a water based lubricant that is made with Mentha Piperita oil aka peppermint oil to create a fun cooling effect. Cooling lubricants such as the Cool Blast give a new type of sensation and this one isn’t the type that reacts with friction or a blowing effect. On contact within minutes, it will create a mild sensation and it intensifies from there. I found it to be refreshing especially during the peak of those hot Californian summer nights. **cool down** Also, during a longer diy session that gets too hot.
This lube is clear, with a viscosity that is medium to thick density which makes it easier to apply and glides on with ease. The Cool Blast thickness almost gives a mild cushion between skin to skin/toy contact so it allows you, to feel that friction isn’t going to happen. It’s great for a glide just for the clit.
Just keep in mind, since it is a water-based lubricant, it has tendency to evaporate after awhile. This lube dried out fast for me and when it did, ID Hero Cool Blast became really tacky and I needed to add a bunch more. It left that “I just used lube”thin layer feel on the skin but its fine after a simple soap and water wash down.
Just a tip, The cap is a bit annoying with the snap off closure and the constant open and close has a tendency to break off after time… or dropping it on hard surfaces. >_<
I find any type of cooling lubricant is more of a once in a blue moon to spice things up type of lubricant. ID Hero Cool Blast is awesome when you are a bit bored and need to take it up a notch but I don’t recommend it every day. If you have a temperamental vagina like mine, it messes up with my ecosystem down there and I have to take a visit to the doctor instead of another round of sexy time sessions.
I have only encountered one person who voiced their opinion that they haven’t liked this lube. The cooling sensation was a little extreme for her and after she used the lube she had irritation on her inner labia lips and she got a yeast infection.
Other than that, anyone who’s wanted to try out a cooling lube including myself have enjoyed it. 😀 There is many more from the ID Heroes line to choose but give the cooling and warming lubes a try. 😛
Recently, I headed out to a house party and ended up having girl talk with a mini group of gals. I stumbled into the convo and what was the topic? That’s right the unspoken “Anal Sex” discussion.
I got caught up in this conversation when this one girl said to NOT use any lube. I’m pretty sure my jaw dropped and couldn’t believe the next words coming out of her mouth. Apparently, her first experience wasn’t so pleasant and she had to take a visit to the hospital because (duh, she didn’t use lube and) she got an anal fissure (micro tear) from obviously friction and started bleeding when she went to the bathroom. She started spewing out how it was just because it was the first time. Haha our bums don’t have a hymen, people. It ain’t like that. It seems to be coming up a lot around me, and all I want to do is yell from the rooftops. WHERE DA LUBE AT?!?! Read more to get some recommendations and learn a few pros and cons on what to use!

First off, CONGRATS on trying to bring some baby into this world! … and actually having sex for the “procreation” side of it all. haha
As far as your question is concerned, NOT ALL LUBE is created equal. Whatever you probably have at home or are trying to use, I reeeally want to say no. There are some lube specifically made for it, but majority of the lubes on the market are not sperm-friendly.

Water based lubricants are the most friendliest to use out there! It has all the right qualities that are needed and wanted in a lubrication. What I mean by water based lubricant it is water soluble. It is made with various plant based polymers, preservatives and sometimes glycerin. The newer lubricants that are being introduced have been adding moisturizers to decrease the stickiness and ability to stay moist longer. So as far as water-based lubricants, there are a lot of options out there for you. Continue reading H2Ohhhhh, Water Based Lubricants! | What are water based lubricants?
