Wet & Wild Blog Hop


Here I am with yet another blog hop! I love the things! This one is hosted by the lovely and talented Skye Warren and I'm happy to be participating!

Wet and wild conjures so many interesting ideas, and I didn't know where to start until it occurred to me that sex needs to be wet in order to work right. And I don't know about you, but sometimes even when I'm in the mood, Mother Nature has trouble getting the juices flowing. In romance books, the hero only has to look at his heroine and she's flooding her panties, but reality doesn't always work like a book. So for today's post I'm going to talk about:

LUBE

If you have any sort of vaginal dryness, sex just won't be comfortable. If I'm not wet enough, nothing is getting in there. Good foreplay is usually the best solution, but there are a number of factors that can lead to unusual dryness, even with a great build-up. I found a great article in Women's Health Magazine that cites things like stress, medications, or illnesses that can all interfere with natural lubrication. If the foreplay isn't enough (or even if it is), using a personal lubricant can be very effective.

Speaking from personal experience, hubby and I have tried a few over the years and it took a long time to find one that was just right. I always found that even when we used lube, I could still dry out mid-session (hubby has a lot of stamina). He discovered one that we both really like called Wet Platinum. It's silicone based, and it stays wet a LONG time. I also have this issue about not liking to have sticky hands. I do realize that there are all kinds of interesting jokes in that, but it's the truth. I don't even like to use hand creams. I always hated getting the lube on my hands. But this lube isn't yucky sticky and it wipes off fairly easily. It doesn't taste the best, but I believe the company sells flavoured options. In fact, they have a handy quiz to help you determine which of their products is best for you!

For this blog hop, I'm giving away an ebook copy of one of my titles, plus $10 to spend at Amazon, where you can find lots of things to get your motor going, from books to toys to lube - they've got it! And don't forget to stop by the other participating blogs for their giveaways and to be eligible to win the grand prize, $100 at Victoria's Secret, plus an assortment of ebooks!

Happy Hopping!

  12. Very true! Maybe it would be too realistic for some, but I wouldn't mind a less than perfect heroine who needed a little extra lubrication on occasion.
