Have you ever wished that you could enjoy licking chocolate sauce or vanilla ice cream off your partner without all the mess?
Does the taste of latex remind you of a visit to the orthodontist more than hot oral sex?
If you answered “YES!” to either of those questions, then exploring the world of edible and flavored personal lubricants will open up amazing opportunities for deliciously enticing sex — and even solo play.
Dainis Graveris, a certified sex educator, said that edible lubricants offer protection against friction and dryness during sex, with some added benefits.
He explained that when using edible lubes, “you don’t have to worry about your safety in case you ingest some of the product during sex.”
What Is The Difference Between Edible And Flavored Lube?
It’s important to note that although many people conflate the two, there is a difference between an edible lube and a flavored one.
Just because a lube says it’s edible doesn’t mean it’ll taste like cotton candy.
In other words, EDIBLE lube (meaning it is safe to ingest), does NOT mean that the lube is necessarily FLAVORED.
An edible lube might in fact not taste great at all despite being ok if swallowed, while a flavored lube is specifically designed to taste good and be used orally.
“Flavored edible lubes,” Dainis Graveris explained, “are a great addition to the bedroom if you want to awaken your sense of taste. Sex becomes a better and more satisfying experience when you bring in more senses.”
That said, not all edible lubes are made equal.
Some personal lubricants claim to be edible, yet they include potentially toxic ingredients, could be a choking hazard, or taste outright disgusting.
That’s why we’ve done all of the research for you, learning what ingredients to avoid and providing a list of flavored and edible lubricants that are worth your time — and money.
So, if you want to explore the nearly limitless options with edible lubes, you’ve come to the right place!
The Pros And Cons Of Edible And Flavored Lube
Like with all personal lubricants, there are specific benefits and disadvantages that you should know about before choosing one that’ll make your mouth water and your partner squirm.
Pros Of Flavored And Edible Lubricants
- They are great for adding an extra dimension to oral sex or foreplay
- They are available in a multitude of flavors, so everyone’s likely to find something they enjoy
- They can be used internally if they don’t include glycerin, sugar, or sugar substitutes
- They are typically water-based and compatible with latex condoms and dental dams so you don’t have to sacrifice safety for great taste
- They are compatible with high-quality, body-safe sex toys if they are water-based, which most edible lubes are
Cons Of Flavored And Edible Lubricants
- They generally shouldn’t be used for vaginal or anal sex if they include sugar or glycerin, which many often do, as those ingredients can increase the risk of infection
- They shouldn’t be used when trying to conceive since some ingredients can be harmful to sperm
- Since they’re primarily water-based, they’re not as long-lasting as silicone or oil-based lubes
- Flavored or edible water-based lubes aren’t waterproof, rendering them useless in the shower or bath
- Some “edible” lubes don’t taste very good because they weren’t specifically designed to be eaten, but are safe to ingest
Flavored lubes are amazing additions to your lube collection, and since there are so many brands with different flavors available, everyone can find a flavor they love.
Why Is A Personal Edible Lube Important For Oral Sex?
It’s easy to assume that you’ll “never run out of spit” while using your mouth to go down on someone, but the fact is that the addition of lubricant can make the entire experience much more pleasurable — for you and your partner.
Many people rely on saliva alone during oral sex, but those in the know understand the value of personal lube to keep things as deliciously slick as possible.
There’s an old saying that goes, “The spirit is willing but the body is weak.”
Dry mouth can and will strike at the most inconvenient of times. Don’t be a victim: drink plenty of water but keep a tasty flavored lube nearby.
Your partner will thank you for it.
How Can Flavored Lube Improve Your Sex Life?
When it comes to sex, the wetness from saliva can only take you so far.
Whether you’re performing fellatio or cunnilingus, flavored lube will enable you to expand your technique in ways you never dreamed possible.
While oral sex generally involves the use of your mouth, lips, and tongue, you’ve got a whole face waiting — and ready — to get in on the action.
For instance, if you’re going down on a woman, nudging your nose along her vulva or circling her clit will take her to new heights of pleasure as long as things stay wet and slippery.
Likewise, if you’re giving someone a blowjob, flavored lube makes your handiwork much more effective when you’re stroking a penis while sucking on it.
Many flavored lubes are water-based and compatible with condoms and dental dams.
If you really want to spice things up, try using a flavored condom with a flavored lube — you might find your new favorite flavor combination!
Flavored and edible lubes also make it easier to switch from oral to penetrative sex effortlessly.
However, many such products include glycerin, sugar, or sugar alternatives that can increase your risk of yeast infections, as we’ll discuss below.
Don’t worry, though! There are several flavored lubes that don’t contain these sweet ingredients, making them perfectly safe for your favorite sexual activities, including anal, vaginal, and oral sex.
What Are The Safety Risks Associated With Flavored Lube?
If you’re wondering whether or not flavored lubes are safe to use, the answer is a little more complicated than a simple “Yes” or “No” — but they’re safe when used as directed.
You’ll only find water-based formulas on our list of favorites.
Oil-based lubes generally shouldn’t be consumed since they can cause coughing and choking — and not the kinky kind.
While a silicone lubricant can be edible or flavored and are safe to ingest in small amounts, many people don’t like the heavy, thick texture on their tongue, compared to the lightweight feel of water-based lube.
When it comes to internal use during vaginal sex, flavored lubes may include sweet ingredients that taste great but can also raise your risk of getting a yeast infection — which we’ll talk more about in a bit.
- Are Flavored Lubricants Safe To Use When Trying To Conceive?
You generally don’t want to use flavored lubes when you’re trying to conceive — at least during vaginal sex.
Dr. Peter Rizk, OB/GYN and fertility expert for Fairhaven Health, explained that certain ingredients that are often found in flavored lubes can make conceiving more difficult. He told me:
“It’s not advisable to use flavored lubricants when trying to conceive. When you are trying to get pregnant, the stakes are much higher, and it is important to avoid lubricants that are not specifically labeled as fertility lubricants, as these every day lubricants contain ingredients and/or have a pH that is harmful to sperm, which is exactly what you don’t want when you are trying to get pregnant.
“When actively trying to conceive, choosing a lubricant designed specifically to be fertility-friendly is a must. In addition to enhancing the pleasure of sex, a fertility lubricant can provide a protective environment for sperm, as it makes its way through the female reproductive tract. That’s because FDA-cleared fertility lubricants are pH matched to fertile cervical mucus and semen. These lubricants also mimic the consistency and viscosity of cervical mucus making it a great match for sperm.”
That doesn’t mean it’s impossible to get pregnant when using flavored lubes, of course, so use protection to safeguard yourself from STIs and STDs — as well as a surprise pregnancy.
If you’re specifically searching for a lube that is sperm-friendly, you can check out one of our top picks for a fertility-friendly lube here.
- Are Flavored Lubricants Approved By The FDA?
Personal lubricants used for sexual activity are classified as “Class II medical devices” by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
Manufacturers must either register their product for 510(k) clearance or be deemed exempt from requiring it.
For instance, a product may be marketed as a “personal moisturizer” rather than a “personal lubricant” — in such cases, the FDA will declare it exempt from being registered for 510(k) clearance.
Either way — whether a product has that clearance or is exempt from needing it — the FDA has considered the product and you can trust that it’s approved for sale in the U.S.
The FDA even offers a handy searchable database for checking the 510(k) clearance of any lubricant you have or intend to purchase.
All of our personal flavored lubricant recommendations have either a registered 501(k) clearance certificate on file with the FDA as of this writing or were exempt from providing one.
Flavors Of Edible Lube, Their Ingredients, And Safety
While the flavors of edible lubricants run the gamut from sweet to salty and even spicy, they incorporate a variety of ingredients — and not all of those are ideal for everyone.
Let’s take a closer look at what you should consider when you’re looking for an edible lube, talk about the most popular flavors available, and dig into the ingredients that should be avoided.
What Should You Look For When Buying Lube For Oral Sex?
Generally speaking, the most important things to consider are a personal lubricant’s ingredients — which we’ll talk about in just a minute — and your personal preference regarding flavor, or lack thereof.
While edible lubricants come in a variety of flavors, not everyone wants to experience a taste sensation during oral sex.
Some people are sensitive to flavors or simply don’t want to mask their partner’s natural taste — and that’s totally fine!
Regardless of whether you prefer plain or flavored lube, you’ll want to take a close look at the ingredients to make sure they’re free of things that you may personally be allergic to.
It’s always a good idea to do a patch test using any new lube on a small area of skin — like your inner elbow — to check for potential reactions.
If you’re allergic to latex, it’s wise to avoid any products that include aloe vera, as the leaf of the aloe plant contains natural latex that can cause a reaction.
Some lubricants may use oils derived from almonds, sunflowers, or other plant-based sources, which may be a problem for folks with those specific allergies.
Always read the label of any new lube you plan to try.
- What Is The Most Popular Flavor Of Edible Lube?
Although there hasn’t been a formal survey done that we can find, going by the ratings of our recommended products, folks love piña colada, vanilla, apple, and salted caramel.
That said, other popular lube flavors include cherry, watermelon, strawberry, peaches n’ cream, cotton candy, and of course, chocolate.
No matter what you’re craving for dessert tonight, there’s a personal lubricant buffet that’s just waiting to be discovered.
What Ingredients Are Used In Flavored Lube And Are They Safe?
As we’ve already talked about, lubricants that include ingredients like glycerin and sugar can increase your risk of infections, which is why we normally recommend avoiding them entirely when it comes to vaginal sex.
When you use flavored lube orally and externally — especially with a condom or dental dam — the risk of infection drops.
Of course, you’ll always want to be on the lookout for any ingredients that you’re allergic or sensitive to before trying any new lube.
In addition to avoiding allergens, there are several ingredients you should avoid in an edible or flavored personal lubricant, including:
As always, it’s important to know what to avoid just as much as you should know what to look for in a good lube.
Parabens are found in all types of lubricants, and there’s been debate over the years as to whether or not they’re harmful.
Still, if you can avoid extra chemicals in your edible or flavored lube, especially one that’s thought to be an endocrine-disruptor, you definitely should.
DMDM Hydantoin is often used as a preservative in various cosmetic and beauty products, including certain flavored lubes.
This preservative releases formaldehyde, however, which makes it an irritant and a known carcinogen.
Two additional ingredients you’ll want to look out for include petroleum jelly and capsaicin.
Capsaicin, on the other hand — the source of spiciness in chili peppers and other hot foods — might sound like it’ll spice up your sex life, but in reality, it’ll make you feel like you need to shove ice cubes up your vagina.
Chlorhexidine gluconate is an ingredient that’s commonly used to treat gingivitis, but it also sometimes shows up in lubes. It’s antimicrobial, meaning it reduces bacteria in the area where it’s applied.
While this is great when you want to get rid of gingivitis, it’s not such a hot idea when used in a personal lubricant since it’s been shown to irritate and dry out sensitive skin.
Cyclomethicone, a type of silicone that’s sometimes found in silicone-based or water-and-silicone lube hybrids, is another ingredient to avoid.
Studies have suggested that Cyclomethicone is an endocrine disruptor that can potentially affect fertility — and no one should have to risk their chances to conceive a child for a little fun in the bedroom!
Finally, you’ll want to avoid lubricants with added dyes. These can make a mess, but they can also cause discomfort and itchiness.
Just because your lube tastes like candy doesn’t mean it needs to look like it!
- A Note About pH And Osmolality
There are two factors to consider when it comes to the safety of your flavored lube: pH and osmolality.
Why worry about pH if flavored lubes are meant for oral sex?
Let’s be real. Oral sex is a little (or a lot) messy, and if you’re having a good time, your focus isn’t going to be on keeping that lube in one place.
It’s better to use a pH-balanced lube to reduce the risk of infections just in case you decide to switch from oral to penetrative sex.
Besides, some flavored lubes can be used internally if their ingredients allow, and if you happen to use a lube that can be used for both oral and penetrative sex, it’s important to be sure it won’t make your vag or anus angry.
Beyond examining a lube’s pH, you’ll also want to ensure it has a safe osmolality value.
Concerning water-based lube, osmolality measures how many chemical particles have dissolved in the water, which makes up the base of the lube.
A lube that has more dissolved chemical particles than water is considered hyper-osmolar.
In addition to making your vaginal area feel as dry as a Saltine cracker, it can also damage vaginal and anal tissue and increases the risk of HIV infection.
Though hypo-osmolar lubes — which contain more water than dissolved chemical particles — aren’t as harmful as hyper-osmolar lubes but they can still cause damage.
The World Health Organization (WHO) suggests that the ideal lubes should have an osmolality of less than 380 mOsm/kg.
Many lubes extend beyond this range, which is why the WHO ultimately recommends that personal lubes should have an osmolality of 1200 mOsm/kg or less.
Ultimately, you should aim for a lube that is iso-osmotic, meaning its osmolality matches your body’s osmolality.
Again, even if you’re using a flavored personal lubricant that shouldn’t be used internally, an iso-osmotic product is as important as one that is pH-balanced.
You can’t always control exactly where lube goes; it’s better to be safe rather than deal with potential consequences later on.
That said, our recommended edible and flavored lubricants are safe for oral sex and intercourse.
Tips For Using Edible And Flavored Lubes
Need some tips on figuring out the best ways to use flavored lubes? We’ve got you covered!
- How Do You Use Flavored Lube?
Before or during oral sex, you can apply a few drops directly to the genitals of the person on the receiving end of cunnilingus or fellatio.
Some people also apply a dab of lube to their own lips, as well!
- Is It Okay To Eat Flavored Lube?
If you’re using a flavored personal lubricant exclusively for oral sex, rest assured that it’s safe to swallow.
- How Much Edible And Flavored Lubricant Should You Use?
Typically, a few drops are enough — but your mileage may vary as far as reapplication goes.
Depending on how long you’re engaging in oral sex, add a drop or two whenever you notice a decrease in tongue slippage.
- How Long Do Edible And Flavored Lubes Last?
While a lube’s shelf life varies by individual product, the average is 1 to 3 years from the date of manufacture.
That said, it’s a good idea to stick with a bottle size that you’ll use within 12 months, and no more than 2 years, just to be safe. Lubes should be stored in a cool and dry place when not in use.
Some lubricants will have a sell-by date stamped on the bottle, but not all of them do. If you notice any significant changes in a lube’s scent, appearance, or consistency, it’s probably time to replace it.
- Should Edible Lube Only Be Used For Oral Sex?
If you’re using an edible lubricant that’s not flavored, you generally don’t have to stick to oral sex exclusively — although we won’t blame you if you do!
Edible lubes that aren’t flavored can usually be used for a variety of sexual activities, including vaginal and anal sex.
Dr. Regina Whitfield Kekessi, who is an OB-GYN in the Cincinnati area, offered some tips about what to look for in a good edible or flavored sex lube. She told me:
“Edible/flavored lubricants do come in silicone, oil, and water-based formulas. Whether one is better than others depends on the purpose for which it is being used. For pure enjoyment, I’d recommend the product that comes in your favorite flavor, does not have an aftertaste, is not sticky/messy, and does not stain your sheets.”
Though edible and flavored lubes come in all different types of formulas, the majority of them are water-based.
Edible lube that doesn’t have any added flavoring is great if you want to taste your partner au naturale.
If you’re someone who just wants a basic edible lube without a flavor, we highly recommend Aloe Cadabra Personal Lubricant & Moisturizer* in the unscented variety.
Though you can normally use edible, non-flavored lubes for anal or vaginal sex, the same can’t be said for all flavored lubes.
Dr. Kekessi explained why most flavored lubes shouldn’t be used for penetrative sex. She told me:
“Flavored lubricants should be used only for oral sex so as to decrease the risk of developing a vaginal infection for the female partner. I suggest that one wash off the flavored lubricants before proceeding with sex. Edible non-flavored products pose less of a risk and are reasonable to consider for dual purpose — oral and penetrative activity.”
We did thorough research, however, to ensure that all of the flavored and edible lubricants that made our list of recommendations can be safely used for both oral and vaginal sex.
