Male masturbation lubes: a sorely undercovered topic online and in sexual health and education. Strangely, lube is frequently imagine to be necessary only for women (or for penetrative sex), and men often grow up using spit, lotion, or nothing at all when they jack off. While a dry rub can be fun in a pinch, the truth about male masturbation is that lube only makes it better! Lube can help you last longer, cum harder, and allows you to jack it more often, by keeping your sensitive skin healthy and free from irritation.

Why is lube the best solution?

Some of the biggest and best reasons you should always be incorporating lube into your wank sessions:

Lube heightens sensation: a wet boner feels TOTALLY different than a dry one

Lube protects your skin: reducing friction means less irritation and redness and a quicker rebound time

Lube helps you last: prolonging jack off sessions alone or with buddies is a great use of quality penis grease

Here are some things to keep in mind about male masturbation lubes:

Oil Based Lubes

The most significant advantage of oil-based lubricants is that they last longer than any other type. Mineral oil and olive oil are great for guys who are sensitive to certain additives in water or silicone-based lubes. Albolene is the most popular with serious bators worldwide.
Remember to never use oil-based products with rubber, latex, or silicone toys or condoms. It’s dangerous for you, and ruins your toys!

Silicone Sex Lubes

This type of lube is what we recommend for endurance masturbation aficionados. It’s one of the most commonly used lube for jerking off, and it’s for a good reason – it’s slippery and doesn’t evaporate. The only thing silicone lubricants have going against them is that they can destroy some silicone or rubber sex toys.

Water-Based Lubes

Water-based lubricants are easy to wash off with soap and water, won’t stain most fabrics, and they evaporate pretty quickly (this means that frequent reapplication may be necessary). Water based products are always the best choice for Fleshlights, prostate massagers, and cockrings, as toys won’t be damaged by unexpected chemical reactions.


Lube is always recommended during masturbation. It feels great and helps avoid any chaffing or uncomfortableness and irritation. Precum can also be used as a natural lube.

Lube feels great and makes the experience more fun. It’s also good for the penis and helps avoid irritation caused by friction.

Lube can be applied directly to the penis or onto the hands first.

There are many types of lubes from water based, oil, and silicone to name a few. The best lube is typically Albolene and/or Coconut Oil

Lube oil is oil based such as Coconut Oil, Olive oil, etc.

You can clean silicone lube wish dish soap and water. Dish soap tends to fight grease. Then place items into washer. The shower will wash any excess from the body.

Dish soap will do the trick on clothing or cloth.

When cleaning up silicone lube you should use dish soap and warm water.

Water based lube is lube high in water volume. It tends to dry and needs reapplied more often.

Water based lube lasts the shortest from other lubes. You’ll frequently have to reapply.
