Have you ever tried skiing down a hill that wasn't covered in snow? You might still end up at the bottom, but it would be a bumpy ride, and you might fall over once or twice along the way. That's basically what would happen if you chose not to use lube with your hands free male masturbator - it might work, but even if it did you wouldn't be getting anywhere close to the best experience possible.
Benefits of Using Lube on a Hands Free Male Masturbator
In my experience, lube is what really brings my hands free male masturbator to life! When I close my eyes, it is that warm, wet feeling on the smooth material of the sleeve that really makes me feel like I am getting a real blowjob. Hands free, I can just lean back and enjoy the warm, wet ride.
The lube also makes insertion and removal very easy. Without that, the material can be sticky, and it may rub in a way that is very uncomfortable. It is best to apply lubricant to your penis (enjoying yourself as you do so) and then insert into the masturbator. It's usually a snug fit, so the lubricant ensures that you can easily fit into the sleeve without any discomfort. In my opinion, it's better to have too much lube the first time around than not enough! The sleeve of my Autoblow 2 is so easy to clean, that I never feel I need to skimp when it comes to lubing up.
And don't forget, if you're looking for a realistic experience, wouldn't it be weird if it wasn't a bit slippery? If you were getting a blow job from someone and their mouth was completely dry, that would not only be weird, but incredibly uncomfortable. So lube it up!
What Type of Lube Should I Use with my Hands Free Male Masturbator?
Now that you know how important it is to use lube with your masturbator, you're going to need to understand what type of lubricant is best.
Not everyone is aware of the fact that there are many different types of lubricant out there, and not all of them are good news for your hands free male masturbator. In most cases, you will need to use a water-based lubricant only. This does of course, depend on the material that your masturbator is made from, but if you've got one of high quality, chances are water-based lube is the only way to go. (Be sure to read any directions of pamphlets that came with your masturbator, as I can only offer specific guidance on the toy that I own.)
Silicone-based or oil-based lubes can damage the toy by destroying the soft, life-like material these masturbators are typically made from. The instructions for my Autoblow 2, for example, very clearly state that only water-based lubricant is safe to use. Other lubes will corrode the material, and that wonderful material that feels so good to the touch will become rough and bits may even start to fall off, highly decreasing your pleasure and becoming potentially dangerous when you use it.
One of the really great things about water-based lubricant (other than the fact that it feels great) is that it cleans up easily (even if you spill it out onto the ouch or sheets) and very few people have any type of allergic reaction to it.
I almost forgot - just remember that sometimes the best lubricants are the simple ones. I have tried a few different types of water-based lubes including one that heats up, and I did not enjoy it. Combined with the stroking inside the sleeve, it was all just too much - but hey, that's me. There's a world of water-based lubes out there for you to try - just try to get one that lasts a long time without reapplication so you don't have to stop the fun halfway through. :)
