When you’re getting ready for some sexual fun, the vagina is
designed to become moist and juicy. This is called vaginal fluid, and it is a
wonderful lubricant to make sex more comfortable and heighten your pleasure.
If a lack of vaginal fluid is affecting your enjoyment of
sex, there are a number of personal lubricants available from the pharmacy. It’s
best not to use oil or hand cream, as certain oils may reduce the effectiveness
of condoms. Spreading lubricant onto your vagina and penis can be a very pleasurable
part of foreplay.
Do bear in mind that HIV and other STIs can be present in
vaginal fluids and so it’s important to practice safe sex.
