If you’ve often wondered why there are so darn many September and October babies in your kids’ classes, it’s because the winter, particularly the holiday season, is prime baby making time. With no reason to go outside in the miserable cold, and lots of holiday parties with some pretty potent eggnog and champagne, it seems as though parents find another way to keep themselves pleasantly occupied.
So combine a little more action in the bedroom with a breastfeeding or post partum mom (which could be anywhere to years after you have kids, at least that’s what I tell myself) and lubricant is a necessary evil. But know this, as my sex columnist alter-ego the Mominatrix would say, not all lubes are created equal. According to Good Clean Love, a mom-owned business and website aimed at “making love sustainable,” over 90% of lubes contain chemicals aimed at car and oven cleaning; probably not anything you’d want anywhere near your nether regions.
Aside from being extremely effective, my suggestions for personal lubricants are made using naturally-minded practices, which includes no testing on animals and natural ingredients.
Keep these bedside if you’re looking at a very very long winter.
1) Good Clean Love offers naturally scented lubes that are long lasting and recommended by gynecologists.
2) Emerita natural personal lubricants, including their popular OH warming gel, are made for women, by women.
3) The Sliquid Sassy Booty Formula is all natural and glycerin free, which is great for the many folks who are sensitive or allergic. *Link not safe for work*
4) Parent-owned LeastLikely2Breed.net makes a fantastic lubricant with an almost equally fantastic name that’s great to combat personal dryness as well as help things along in the bedroom.
With any one of these lubricants, you’ll be sure to make the holiday season a memorable one. Just remember to lock the bedroom door.
