Is lube necessary when using toys?

trynthings trynthings
My wife and I are new to using toys. I'm ordering a silicone vibrator for her and would like to know if lube is absolutely necessary? She has sensitive skin and would prefer not to use it if we can avoid it. She produces a lot of natural lubricant on her own so is it necessary to use lube with a silicone vibe?

Also she is pregnant so if you recommend a lubricant please keep that in mind. (not sure if that matters or not)

Thanks

Necessary? Not necessarily. LOL If she produces enough of her own natural moisture, you should be good to go. Sliquid Sea is a great lubricant for us ladies and guys out there with sensitive skin.

If the vibrator is going to be used for mainly clitoral/external stimulation lube is not necessary.
It is possible to use vibrators internally without additional lube, but silicone can 'grab' at the skin and lube might make things more comfortable.
Using lubricant during pregnancy is totally safe, but since you said your wife has sensitive skin, and pregnancy throws a woman's body out of whack, I'd try making sure any lube you try during this time is glycerin and paraben free.

I have read that lube is recommended even if a woman's body produces adequate lubrication because the lube ensure no pulling on her vaginal tissues.

YES, silicone is really draggy and you need water-based lube to be on the safe side. No one wants inflamed sexy bits. I recommend pink or a sliquid-type lube (look at the ingredients to make sure she's not allergic/sensitive to them).

I've never had an issue with silicone dragging when I was turned on -- I think it really does depend on the person.

If I am really turned on enough to enjoy having toys in me, I honestly often don't bother with any other lube at first, however, we tend to have long play times, especially if toys are involved, so the lube is applied once it starts feeling like I need or want it.

Agreed! If excited enough will produce enough of own natural juices.

If she gets excited enough and produces enough of her own, it should be fine, but if it's not enough, I'd go with Sliquid, it's vegan and is free from harmful substances. Just check the ingredients first!

Since she has sensitive skin, I would be careful about lube, especially if she gets wet enough on her own. Try it without lube once she's really turned on, and see how that goes. You can always purchase lube later on if you realize it is a necessity for her.

I wouldn't say that lube is necessary when playing with toys. It would all depend on the amount of natural lubrication that she makes and physical comfort when playing. Some people need it others don't.

There are lubes that great for people who are sensitive. ID moments water based Lubricant is pretty good one. Sliquid is another good brand.

I use lube with all anal toys and some of my more larger toys that are for vaginal play. Lube just makes insertion a little more easier and less burning when dealing with a toy with a good bit of girth.
