How to use a personal lubricant

Owning a business can be interesting in so many ways I never considered.  The other Saturday night around 9:30, I got a call from a customer.  I was asleep (own my business… tired…) and suddenly was being asked how to use Sylk, a natural, water-based personal lubricant I sell.  I was stunned into silence and then realized that one of my customers needed help.  It had never occurred to me that people really don’t know how to put on a personal lubricant, so here goes –

First, make sure you use enough – it’s better to use too much than not enough. Play around with it before you need it so you know what it feels like.  If it’s in a tube, squirt it into the palm of your hand the same way you would with suntan oil, shaving cream or skin cream.  If it’s in a  jar, such as our oil-based Yoni Cream, use your fingers to scoop out the amount you want.  How much depends on your individual situation. If you are using it for masturbation: for women, use enough to cover the labia (the two “side flaps” leading into the vaginal canal) and the entrance to the vagina.  For men, use enough to cover the penis so the friction is comfortable.  If you are using it for intercourse, cover the man’s penis and the outside and entrance to the woman’s vagina.  It’s fun to make the application part of your foreplay.

If you are using a condom, use water based lubricants only – oil based lubricants might make the condom break.  Put the condom on unrolling it up the penis with your fingers – sort of like pulling on a sock. Starting at the tip of the condom-covered penis, spread it down all over the condom.  Make sure the condom is covered so there are not spots where friction can create discomfort. Make sure you use enough!

I hope this helps.  If you have never used a personal lubricant before, rest assured that you will be able to practice until you know exactly how much you need.

Radio broadcast on vaginal dryness

Okay, another thing your doctor won’t tell you is that after you lose estrogen either because of tamoxifen or aromasin (or any of those drugs that shut down your estrogen) or because your breast cancer has happened after menopause, you will most likely experience vaginal dryness.  This is no joke.  No one talks about it!  So I am shouting as loud as I can about it…

I feel so strongly about this that I started my business because of it.  This radio broadcast has really good information and so I share it with you and hope that it provides you with some good hope.

Survey!!! Revealing Vaginal Effects at Mid-life

Oh my gosh! You know I promise information and here it is – big time. Can I tell you how excited I am that a big pharmaceutical company like Wyeth has done and published this research? Thrilled!!! I hope you can take a little time to read through this and be comforted, mentally at least, by the information. Go to Reveal survey

The pharmaceutical’s approach to solving our vaginal dryness problems may not be our first choice, but it is for some women and the more information that is out there proving to women that it is okay to talk about their sexual health the better, I say.

For those of us who aren’t interested in the methodology of the survey, just skip to page 9 for the summary and then read what you like of the rest. I found it really interesting and hope that you do also.

Come visit Women’s Intimate Solutions when you are looking for all natural help in managing your vaginal dryness.

Oh, by the way, if your doctor or nurse practitioner can’t talk to you about this easily – find one who can, they are there!
