Lube is an often overlooked sex accessory that is capable of taking your masturbatory or sex sessions to new levels of enjoyment.

I am speaking from experience here as I go through a lot of the stuff, some good, some excellent and of course some I wouldn't touch again.

This post will explain why lube is perfect for all genders. Lube makes everything much more enjoyable so let me tell you why.

Why use lube?

Lube reduces friction, and this can be important for mucous membranes, especially when tackling larger sex toys or even fisting.

Reducing friction will help to prevent damage to the tissue in the form of micro-abrasions and lead to a much more pleasant masturbatory or sexual experience.

Lubes makes vaginal sex better in so many ways, and it is great for wanking too. Add a couple of drops to your fingers and let them tease and smooth it over your sensitive areas to see what I mean.

It is essential when enjoying anal sex as that area doesn't produce its own lubrication, and the tissue is very delicate. Just the mention of the words "Dry Anal Sex" makes me cringe. Lube makes insertion more comfortable, and it also means you can enjoy longer play sessions before getting sore.

Now I am going to make some suggestions for lubes that are perfect for several different play types.

Vaginal Play

Firstly let's talk about vaginal sex and masturbation. One lube that has a cult following amongst devotees of fisting fun is J-Lube . It's supplied as a powder, you just add water to form a delightfully slippery lube that is free from glycerine, fragrance and parabens.

It's perfect for general masturbation but comes into its own with giant dildos, fisting and even anal play too. It is incredibly versatile and also very cost-effective. One bottle of the powder is enough to make up 11 litres of lube. So, bring on those giant John Thomas Toys dildos and plugs.

If you don't fancy making up your own lube, then it's also available in the form of J-Jelly , a pre-mixed bottle that contains 240 ml of the delightfully slippery lube. These bottles are great to keep in a play bag ready for immediate use for those moments when you have the horn and just have to get stuck in right away.

Anal Play

As everyone has an anus, we can all enjoy some quality anal lube when playing. The difference between good and bad anal lube is like night and day, though. Luckily John Thomas Toys stock some of the best ones out there, and they all come highly recommended.

Take Bottom Butter for instance, this is a hybrid water and oil-based lube that is long-lasting and great for anal play. As well as having a fun name, this lube will ensure your anal play sessions are just as fun. The only downside is that this one isn't condom safe or suitable for use with silicone toys. But for fingers and fists it's a winner.

If you need a condom friendly anal lube, then try Fist It Numbing which is supplied in a 1-litre bottle, great for extended play sessions. This one is specially formulated to desensitise and is latex condom friendly too.

I have to mention another cult favourite, and it isn't even a lube at all. However, it does often get used as one. If you are looking for something different but effective, then check out Crisco All Vegetable Shortening.

It's a fat-based bakery product that is good in the kitchen and also in and around your back doors. This long-lasting and versatile product is perfect for fisting and anal play where its smooth, slippery nature will be undoubtedly welcomed.

I can't see this use for it appearing on The Great British Bake Off, but it would undoubtedly see ratings soar if it did.

Cum Play

Lube feels good, but if like me you have a bit of a cum fixation then you are going to love Tom Of Finland "Seaman Lube". This water-based lube looks, feels and smells just like its namesake - cum. The texture of it feels incredible, and when it leaks out of you, it feels just like the real thing.

Ideal for use in dildos with cum tubes like the incredible Sampson Dildo, it's just the lube to choose when you want to enjoy some sticky creampie fun and games.

Fill your syringe with Seaman Lube to apply it exactly where you need it when playing, before relishing the feeling of pumping yourself full of it at the point of orgasm.

Jacking or Jilling Off

Lube is great for jacking or jilling off. It doesn't matter if you are using your hand or a sex toy, add some lube to make what you are doing feel even better.

I always use lube and go through bottles and bottles of the stuff. Why? Because it just makes everything better. Why stay dry when you can lube up and glide.

These two subjects have a lot surprisingly in common, and the techniques used to achieve them are very similar. In both cases, to experience and enjoy them, you must be both highly aroused and relaxed.

Anyone who has ever watched online porn will probably have come across examples of vaginal stretching such as fisting or anal gaping. Quite frankly, these two activities look amazing and feel incredible, but how do you train yourself to achieve these intense experiences?

In this article, I am going to give you some good advice on how you can experience this intense pleasure.

Now, like anything else, anal gaping and vaginal stretching take time and practice. You can't expect to be able to do things like this unless you prepare your body.

Firstly, let me tell you all about vaginal stretching, as the training for this also pertains to anal gaping. I will then go on to talk about anal gaping.

Vaginal Stretching

The vaginal canal is a muscle, and as such, it can stretch and contract a fantastic amount, it is capable of incredible things. Vaginal stretching can be done for pleasure, or as a treatment for several conditions such as Vaginismus, Dyspareunia or even Menopause.

The key to vaginal stretching is to relax and to use a good quality water-based lube. Insert gradually larger objects to slowly stretch the muscles of the vaginal canal and the pelvic floor.

For the pleasure side of vaginal stretching, John Thomas toys are perfect as they come in a range of sizes, and some have varying girth along the shafts, which are ideal for vaginal stretching. Choose one with a tapered shaft for best results such as the Bully Boy or the Curly Twirly as both do an excellent job of gently stretching you open.

These stretching sessions should last between 20-30 minutes and be repeated twice a day. Start with a finger to warm up before moving on to bigger and bigger dildos. Lots of lubricant is key to the success of these exercises, especially as you step up to bigger insertables.

The temptation is to thrust with them, but resist that and just insert them, letting your body adjust to the girth before moving onto a bigger toy. When you have reached your limit, just relax, and feel the stretch before getting yourself off as your reward.

As you repeat these exercises, you will find that you can take bigger and bigger objects. John Thomas Toys dildos, especially those with tapered shafts like The Director, are perfect for vaginal stretching.

Anal Gaping

Cleanliness is next to godliness when it comes to anal play, so before a stretching or gaping session, empty your bowels. An enema is also an excellent option to ensure you are clean and ready for play.

The best position for gaping and anal stretching is doggy style or kneeling and pushing back onto the toy. Lots of lube is essential as you don't naturally produce lubricant back there. This is where John Thomas Toys come into their own as they have a vac-u-lock compatible hole in the base. So, attach a Suction Cup Adaptor and fix your dildo to a smooth flat surface to make it easier to use.

Relax, and start with a finger before using progressively larger insertables. Slow and steady wins this race with anal play, give yourself time to stretch and relax.

When you insert toys, slowly twist them to keep well-lubed up and regularly apply more as you take bigger and bigger toys. Again, John Thomas Toys are perfect for anal stretching and gaping play, with an extensive range of sizes and plugs that taper well it makes anal training an easy process as well as being immensely enjoyable.

The aim is to relax the sphincter so that when a toy is removed, it stays relaxed and open to provide the gape.

With lots of dildos that are perfect as well as anal plugs available in four sizes, you can train yourself moving to larger and larger toys. Thingy Bob and The Buxom Lady are perfect for anal training, the sensation as each section pops inside you is sublime.

Butt plugs such as the Sergeant Major are perfect for extended wear and these help to condition your body to relax and when removed produce a great gape.


Training for anal gaping and vaginal stretching are remarkably similar. Both take time, and lots of practice and that, of course, means lots of enjoyable playtimes. Remember to use lots of lube and enjoy the feeling of being stretched open more and more with each session.

Check out the range of dildos and plugs at John Thomas Toys and let your imagination run wild as to just how good they would feel when you train.

Happy Stretching.

Lovers of platinum silicone dongs such as large silicone dildos, often like to try out all different ways in which you can get pleasure from sex toys also known as adult toys. When using sex toys, having a good variety to choose from – like everything in life – helps to keep your fun interesting and exciting.

If you always use the same sex toy in the same way, things can soon become predictable and less enjoyable! Using your sex toy with your partner is one way in which things can become more erotic. It may be that you choose to use your adult toy in front of your partner. If they are happy for you to do so, then you both are liable to find the experience highly stimulating.

An alternative to you using your sex toy on your self, if your partner used it on you, then it could be really enjoyable and make a perfect lead up to penetrative sex with or without a large silicone dong or huge silicone dildo.

John Thomas Toys have a glorious range of over 50 platinum silicone dongs all available in 4 convenient sizes so all adults are catered for. There is also the choice in firmness for you to consider until you create the perfect bespoke sexual experience.

John Thomas Toys are all designed to be used by hand – if you should so wish. However, the majority of them are also Vac-u-lock and O-Ring compatible. *Please check each items specifications prior to ordering to avoid disappointment. With the compatibility, comes the option of attaching to a harness or sex machine. Sex machines are also referred to as fucking machines or in some countries as fuck machines.

For the individual who wishes to use a sex toy alone it may be that a platinum silicone dildo is too big to carry around with them. They may consider them not terribly discreet – especially the 16” jumbo silicone dongs which are available – incredibly big and heavy.

Alternatively, it may be that some people want to use a sex toy which – for lack of a better expression – will do all the work! It is not that the people using these adult toys are lazy, but more that they wish to find the masturbation experience to be indulgent and not plain hard work!

Attaching a platinum silicone dong to a sex machine is a great way to reap the potential from the textured handcrafted adult toy that you choose. If the sex toy is mounted on a machine then you can set yourself up in a comfortable position and angle the thrusting rod so the sex toy compliments the opening of your desired orifice.

Sex machines are very powerful adult toys which can potentially go and go. (Always follow manufacturer's instructions). With a sex toy attached to a machine you can literally lay back, hold the remote control and think of England! Sex machines (unless battery powered) will not slow down or conk out too early and leave you sexually frustrated. Unlike a man, a sex machine with a platinum silicone dildo attached will not reach it’s climax too early and want to go to sleep either!

While sex machines and fucking machines are a handy piece of kit for the adult toy lover, sometimes they are just too big and too heavy and impractical to use on occasions. If for example you are away from home and staying in a hotel, it is not going to be advisable to be lumping a big sex machine around with you wherever you go. Furthermore, lots of sex machines (unless very expensive models) are liable to make quite a lot of noise as they penetrate you with their adult toy attached to the end. Also, a loud machine running in a hotel room is not likely to go down well with your fellow lodgers.

A more convenient option and the focus for the next few articles for our blog is in regard to what are known as hand held fucking machines.

These clever hand held sex machines offer an alternative to big and bulky sex machines and manual use of a platinum silicone dong or large silicone dildo. We shall look at a few examples in the coming days and see how they first originated.
