Best Lubricants Brands in India

  • 4.8 (5 Votes)

Lubricants help in painless and smoother sex. Durex play, Moods lube, Pjur Analyze me, Hot Super glide and Joy Division Slick Slide are the most commonly used and highly rated lubricants in India. Lubricants are a womans best friend and a mans fuel to steam up a hot sexual encounter.

Ever felt confused or shy about using Lubricants? Well, don’t.

Normally, during sexual arousal, a woman’s vagina gets watery and soft due to vaginal secretion. However, many a times due to age or other biological reasons, a woman loses her natural course of lubrication during sexual arousal. That is where a lubricant comes to rescue by providing an artificial yet tempting lubrication which makes sexual intercourse along with foreplays easier.

What is a lubricant?

A Lubricant is a gel or a liquid, which a woman and her partner/s can use to make her/their vulva, vaginal wall or anus wetter. Lubricants come under a lot of fruit/food flavor mainly under three broad categories- Water based, Silicone and Oil based.

Lubricant or Lube in simple terms is the undercover hero of a steamy sexual session. From maintaining passion when your condom dries out to helping out comforting from deadly frictions, a lubricant should be one of the essential products in your bedroom.

What are the types of lubricants?

There are several types of lubricants available; each has its own advantages and disadvantages. Go through the below types:

1- Water-based lubricants

This type is usually inexpensive and can get easily. You can also wash it off easily. But they might not last long as the couple wants and may have to reapply for maintaining the moisture.

2- Silicone-based lubricants

They last longer than water-based lubricants. But they cannot rinse easily and might irritate some women if not cleaned immediately after intercourse.

Both water-based and silicone based lubricants may contain glycerin which can result in inflammation as well as yeast infections.

3- Oil-based lubricants

It should be used with caution. You cannot use these lubricants with latex condoms as it can make the latex weak as well as make the condom to break or leak. As a result, it can increase the risk of unplanned pregnancy or transmission of STIs.


While petroleum-based lubricants made from petroleum jelly, baby oil or mineral oil can cause irritation or inflammation in some women.    

What to keep in mind while using lubricants?

Before using the lubricants, keep in mind the below points:

  • Don’t use the products which are not meant to use as lubricants like baby oil, massage oils, petroleum jelly and natural oils. They can break down the latex condoms and one must avoid using these two together.
  • Avoid using silicone-based lubricants with silicone toys as different silicone grades can break each other.
  • How to use ‘climax control’ lubricants? The climax control lubricants have benzocaine and are meant for men who have premature ejaculation problem. The best way of using this lubricant is by using it inside the condom.
  • Flavored lubricants may seem a good idea but some of them contain sugar. It can be a problem for women who are prone to yeast infection as sugar enhances the yeast growth.
  • Get all the details about natural lubricants before using them. These lubricants contain vitamin E, aloe vera and carrageenan which are long lasting and don’t contain any artificial chemical.

Silicon-based lubricants can be allergic to someone so, be sure enough before choosing lubricant variation. Variants can also add up the spice in your private moments so choose your favorite flavors.

I have personally used Durex lubricants and it's completely reliable. The sex was smooth without any pain or side effects. The viscosity of lubricant was low so, it didn't destroy the fun in sex.
