Sex & CBD
Lubrication is an essential component for great sex. This statement needs no explanation. However, not all vaginas create enough lubrication naturally. The hormone estrogen usually maintains a healthy fluid level, but when estrogen levels drop so does natural lubrication. This can be caused by menopause or several other reasons at any age.
The good news is that there are many “personal lubricant” options on the market including water–based, silicone-based, mineral-oil-based and many others. Because every vagina is different, some women have issues with some and not others.
For example, preservatives added to water-based lubricants have an impact on your body’s pH and osmolality. Silicone-based lubes are difficult to wash off skin and may stain sheets (FYI: they also damage silicone sex toys).
There’s a better option. In addition to the health benefits to your pelvic floor, Silkx Society™ is a fantastic alternative to these products, especially any glycerin-based lubrication. Glycerin has sugar in it and bacteria and fungi feed on this sugar and put you at risk of a yeast infection.
