Whenever my boyfriend and i have sex to get very dry during intercourse and its very painful so we've decided to try lubricant, i prefer to use K-Y brand products because its what my doctor recommended i want to be lubricated as well as get enhanced arousal i'm just confused on which one to try since there are so many any suggestions?

Hi there!

I'd recommend Liquid Astroglide. I've tried a couple KY products (Sensual Silk Tingling Ultra Gel Mint Scented, Warming etc..) but they don't seem to last as long as the Liquid Astroglide. Astroglide is water based and it's really slippery, I really love it. It's actually meant to mimic your own natural lubrication.

Here is the link to the Astroglide website if you want to check it out. On the right hand side of the page, when you open the link, there are the different Astroglide Lubricants. Next to the Liquid Astroglide there's a description. I'll post the description here too if you can't go to the website for whatever reason. [Smile]

Astroglide Personal Lubricant provides whisper-light lubrication for enhancing the comfort and ease of intimate activity. Developed to mimic natural body fluids, Astroglide not only lubricates, but also acts as a moisturizer for vaginal dryness. Astroglide's long-lasting super-slick formula is water-based, water-soluble and petroleum free. Astroglide will intensify the pleasure and sensitivity for both partners. It is the perfect ingredient for increased sexual fun.

Here's the link!

Hope this helps! [Smile]

Whatever type of lubricant you use, you want to make sure it's water based. If it's not they may use sugars which can cause infections. I definitely agree with loveyoumake on Astroglide being a good brand (it's one that I've found I prefer with the types I've tried) and two others are liquidsilk and pink. As well, you don't want to use anything with numbing or warming effects (who really wants tobe numbed for sex anyway, and warming ... well friction takes care of that anyway)

I'd recommend Liquid Silk. KY brands are often the cheapest but in my experience aren't nearly as good.
Liquid Silk (you can probably find them cheaper on other sites like Amazon though)
