Überlube sex lube

ENDURANCE – ÜBERLUBE

A personal favourite of sex educator Eileen Kelly, Uber Lube comes highly recommended. A silicone-based lube, it doesn’t dry up meaning it is going to stay slipperier for longer so you can go all night. Uber lube is safe to use with condoms and in the bath or shower. 

Remember to never use Uber Lube, or any type of silicone-based lube, with silicone toys, however.
