Different types of lubricants available in India

Natural vaginal lubrication

A female's genital responds to sexual arousal by an increase in the flow of blood, which in turn stimulates the secretion of a fluid. A degree of moistness is always there inside the female genitalia. But, the moistness surges high upon sexual arousal. Only with the help of natural lubrication, the copulation process happens so smooth without causing any irritation.

This vaginal dryness may cause vaginal tearing, irritation to the genitals and quite a few consequences. Artificial Sex lubricants are used as a substitute for natural secretions.

So, just use a little amount initially and check if your partner is fine with it before you get started with full throttle.

Get your female partner in the right position since there have been cases of torn rectums with improper pushes.
