A lubricant gel is something between a fluid and semisolid gel with a high content of water, which is to be applied on the genitals before sexual intercourse. Modern lubricant gels contain hydroxyethylcellulose – a modified natural cellulose – which has no side effects and does not damage condoms. The use of the gel increases the sliding effect and reduces the origin of micro traumas (tiny abrasions) that usually occur during sexual intercourse. The moistening of the genitals during sexual excitement is one of the conditions for successful intercourse, and it also helps women reach orgasm. A suitable gel can make your intimate moments very pleasant. Remember, if pain or persistent discomfort occurs during intercourse, see a doctor who is best able to treat any condition or disease which might be present.
