Personal lubricants work to alleviate friction, and can be used for this purpose during sexual intercourse. This means that, instead of experiencing friction which can be unpleasant, sex is made more pleasant for both partners. If for some reason there is no natural lubrication present a lubricant makes sense. Personal lubricants can not only be used for more varied lovemaking; they can also alleviate the symptoms of vaginal dryness.
Although they may not speak openly about it, many women suffer from vaginal dryness. Many people associate the term only with menopausal women, but the problem also affects much younger women. Childbirth, breastfeeding, immune system problems, radio or chemotherapy, excessive genital hygiene practices – all of these can cause vaginal dryness. Women affected by this problem experience itching and burning in their genital areas. The vagina is normally coated in a milky white liquid, even when a woman is not sexually aroused. For women with vaginal dryness, this coating is no longer present. The vagina is therefore unprotected, which causes the resulting friction. In addition to the burning and itching already mentioned, this also makes the genital area more susceptible to infections.
As well as these unpleasant side effects, vaginal dryness also affects the intimate life of the women who suffer from this condition. Pain during sexual intercourse makes one of the greatest pleasures in life significantly less pleasant. Most women don’t speak about this, but it can be simple to alleviate the symptoms of vaginal dryness. Personal lubricants are the answer.
Carefree sexuality – personal lubricants for the alleviation of vaginal dryness
Contrary to what many assume, personal lubricants are suitable for daily use. Simply apply to the genital area to alleviate the unpleasant feeling caused by dryness. Personal lubricants supply the dry mucosa with the moisture that is lacking, thus reducing burning and itching, skin irritations and infections. Once you decide to use a lubrication you now have to choose between water- and silicone-based personal lubricants.
Silicone-based personal lubricants
Silicone-based personal lubricants are made up of silicone molecules. Since silicone molecules are larger than the pores of the skin, they do not penetrate the skin, but remain on the surface. Upon application of silicone-based personal lubricants, a protective film forms on the skin, which not only alleviates the symptoms of vaginal dryness, but also guarantees lubrication for an extended period.
Water-based personal lubricants
Water-based personal lubricants are mostly composed of water. When applied to the mucosa of the vagina, the water-based personal lubricant is absorbed into the upper layers of the skin and so provides the mucosa with the moisture that is lacked. Water-based personal lubricants also alleviate the symptoms of vaginal dryness. A good water-based personal lubricant should leave the skin feeling soft and pleasant, and not sticky.
