Advantages of Oil-based Lubricant
Oil-based lubricant is a type of lubricant primarily made up of plant oils or petroleum-based products. Compared to other lubricants, oil-based lubricants have unique advantages.
Firstly, oil-based lubricants provide very long-lasting lubrication. Its viscosity is higher than other lubricants, forming a long-lasting lubricating film on the skin surface, allowing you to enjoy prolonged lubrication during pleasurable activities.
Secondly, oil-based lubricants provide a great sliding sensation on the skin. Its viscosity allows the skin to slide easily under the lubricant, enhancing the pleasurable sensations.
In addition, oil-based lubricants are relatively low cost, making them more economically feasible compared to other lubricants.
Although oil-based lubricants are not suitable for use with toys made of rubber or silicone, their long-lasting lubrication, excellent skin sliding sensation, affordability, and good taste and odor make them a popular choice among many users.
Disadvantages of Oil-based Lubricants
The main disadvantage of oil-based lubricants is that they are incompatible with latex products such as condoms. This is because oil-based lubricants can break down the structure of latex, making it more fragile and prone to breakage, which can reduce their protective effect. Therefore, if you are using latex condoms, it is recommended to choose other types of lubricants. In addition, oil-based lubricants are not easy to clean and can leave residue on skin and bedding. If you do not want to leave any traces after use, it is not recommended to use oil-based lubricants. Finally, since oil-based lubricants are usually made from vegetable oil or petroleum products, they may cause allergic reactions in some people. If you are sensitive to vegetable oil or petroleum products, you should choose other types of lubricants.
