Tips For An Overactive Bladder

As you get older, any pressure on the bladder, such as sneezing, laughing, or jogging, or having SEX, may cause embarrassment, like leaking urine involuntarily…how unromantic! If you accidentally leak, you may have stress incontinence, which occurs when the muscles and tissue that help support the bladder become weak.  This most commonly affects women in mid-life, after childbirth or when there is a drop in estrogen.  It also affects both men and women during and after cancer treatment, as the nerves and muscles used to control urine flow can be affected. For men, removal of the prostate can impact the bladder’s mechanism for holding urine.

If you suffer with bladder issues, don’t despair because there is hope.  Just like your hamstrings or biceps, the muscle tone of the pelvic floor can be improved.  By strengthening these muscles, you can not only improve or eliminate stress incontinence, you can also improve your sexual health and responsiveness as well.  By developing an awareness of these muscles, you can learn to tone them, which can help if you are experiencing vaginal dryness, difficulty maintaining arousal, painful intercourse or the inability to orgasm. A simple exercise plan for your pelvic floor is all you need.

To start your exercise plan, squeeze the muscles of the pelvic floor as if you were going to stop the flow of urine.  To get the hang of it, when you go to the bathroom, try stopping the flow of urine a few times to find the muscles you need.  It is not recommended that you continue to practice this way after identifying the muscles since a frequent stop of the urine flow can affect the muscles of the bladder over time. Just use it is a guideline to find the muscles. You can then do sets of 10 repetitions of squeezing and holding for 3 seconds at a time -- just as you would at the gym.

Strengthening your pelvic floor also intensifies the experience of orgasm.  It will be your new favorite workout!  To lessen friction, irritation and pressure during sex, be sure to use a top quality lubricant like Wet® Platinum®  during foreplay and intercourse.  It doesn’t absorb into the skin or get sticky like most water-based lubricants, and it will last for hours without needing to re-apply.

10 Tricks For Building Intimacy

These tricks are a treat for you both.  Pick one or two and cast a romantic spell on your partner this weekend. 

1. Ask about their day.  Be sure to listen to the answers.  Don’t try to fix anything. Just listen.

2. Give a foot rub while you are sitting on the couch together—Inttimo by Wet™ Aromatherapy Massage & Bath Oil Invigorate™ with refreshing eucalyptus & citrus works wonders on tired feet.

3. Leave notes for your partner that shows them you are thinking of them.  Short and sweet or descriptive and sexy.

4. Public displays of affection can be hot and showing the world you are together will make your lover feel special.  Just be sure it’s within the comfort range of your partner and be respectful those around you.

5. Leave a bottle of Wet® Flavored™ Kiwi Strawberry™ lubricant where your lover can find it and when they ask about it, you tell them you’d like your treat now!

6. Body-on-Body Massage...Have you tried Nuru massage? Nuru is a sensual Japanese technique where both partners are completely nude and use full body contact to perform the massage with a thick, ultra-slippery, sexy gel like Wet® Nuru Massage Gel. Learn How to Nuru on Wet’s YouTube Channel.

7. Shower together.  Take time to clean every inch of your partner’s body and let them do the same for you.  Wet® Platinum® Premium Lubricant is perfect when getting wet together because it doesn’t break down in water…just remember to use caution as Wet Platinum is extremely slippery.

8. Go shopping together.  Surprise them and swing by your local adult specialty boutique. Pick out a new toy and a bottle of Wet® Ecstasy® Xtra Cooling Lubricant™. When you dab a few drops over your partner’s erogenous zones then gently blow on those areas, you’ll send gentle shivers of anticipation up your lover’s spine.

9. Tell them you love how they kiss.  This is a definite turn on for many.

10. Wake up your partner’s sexual appetite by cooking together.  Standing close together and feeding each other as you do can be very erotic.  You can also go straight to dessert with Wet® Fun Flavors® Warming, Flavored, Massage, and Lubricant all-in-one!

How to Scare Him Off in 10 Spooktacular Steps

We know it’s Halloween but doing these things will potentially scare that love interest away faster than you can say Trick-or-Treat.

1. Saying “I love you” too soon.  It takes time to get to know someone and really value them.  You might feel like you’re in love but that might be lust talking.  Wait until you know for sure.

2. Asking to meet their parents or children.  It’s usually best to let someone choose when this is appropriate. People are naturally protective of their inner circle.  Don’t force the issue in a new relationship.

3. Arguing against the things they are passionate about like political views or being vegan.  If you don’t agree on some fundamental things, it’s time to decide if it’s going to be a big turn off down the road or if it’s something you can learn to live with.

4. Constantly talking about your ex (either positively or negatively).  Nobody wants to feel like they are being compared to someone else.

5. Only talking about yourself. Most people want to know that you are interested in what is going on with them.  Take time to find out each time you are together.

6. Insisting on moving in together or leaving bridal magazines all over the house.  Let the relationship happen naturally. Things will fall into place if it is meant to be.

7. Going shopping or out to eat and expecting the other person to pay for everything, every time…If this is something that is important for you, it needs to be agreed upon in the very beginning of the relationship.

8. Texting or sexting your lover non-stop. How can they miss you if you won’t go away?

9. Talk about having kids and how many. This one is tricky. It is definitely important to talk about kids if you are set on having a certain number within a certain time frame. You need to determine if a potential mate has goals similar to yours. Just try to find a way to do it that doesn’t make it sound like you need to have them right now!

10. Judging their friends or family when you haven’t met them yet. Don’t let gossip or things you see on Facebook determine your opinion of someone you don’t know. If a person is important to your new love, they are probably going to be important to you going forward. Give them the benefit of the doubt in the beginning. Oh, and don't change your Facebook status too early either. Awkward.

SEX EDUCATION 101: 6 Things You Weren’t Taught in School...

What you weren’t taught in school…updated information to keep your love life safe and happy.

Summer has come and gone and students are back in school. Most likely it’s been awhile since you had a Sex Ed course and times have changed. Let’s face it—your information is old school!

New York psychiatrist and sex therapist Madeleine Castellanos, MD, offers updated, “new school” information that everyone should know to stay in the safe sex zone: 

According to the CDC, nearly half of the 19 million new STDs contracted each year are among young people aged 15–24 years (2011).

Oral sex is not considered ‘safe sex.’ HIV, HPV, herpes, gonorrhea, chlamydia and syphilis may all be transmitted via oral sex.  In addition, a 2011 study found that the proportion of oropharyngeal cancers related to HPV increased from 16.3% to 71.7% between 1984 and 2004.

Make oral sex safer by using a flavored condom like DKT’s Prudence brand condoms, which offer a wide variety of flavors and scents (banana, watermelon, strawberry, grape, chocolate and more) guaranteed to tickle your taste buds as well as your partner’s fancy!  

More than $8 billion is spent each year to diagnose and treat STIs and their complications, not including HIV (Guttmacher Institute). STIs (Sexually Transmitted Infections) are definitely out there.  Protect yourself from getting them and/or spreading them.

Oil and latex do not mix—so using petroleum jelly, baby oil, moisturizers or everyday kitchen oils with a condom can cause the latex to break down and increases your chance of breakage and infection. Wet® Platinum® Premium Silicone Lubricant and Wet® Light® Liquid Lubricant are both latex-friendly. When used correctly, Wet lube also helps to reduce excess friction, thus lessening the risk of tears.

That funky smell down there may have nothing to do with hygiene!  A number of everyday triggers, including menstruation, pregnancy, intercourse or medications, can upset the delicate vaginal ecosystem and elevate pH, causing an odor, increase or change in discharge, or a bacterial infection. Fragrance sprays, wipes and pads just mask the problem. RepHresh Gel keeps the pH balanced--an important tool in decreasing chances of bacterial vaginosis, and eliminating that “fishy” odor by treating the root cause.

Wet hopes these tips from sex therapist, MD and psychotherapist, Dr. Madeleine Castellanos will keep your love life safe and intimate this school year.

Did You Miss National Big "O" Day? Tips from The MD.

Did you miss national orgasm day?

National Orgasm Day, July 31, 2014, has come and gone but we’re still celebrating and we want you to come with us!  Joking aside, many, if not most of us, have too few orgasms. And it’s high time to fix that!

Did You Miss National Big "O" Day? Tips from The M.D.

Here are some great tips for putting the big “O” back on top as a national priority and enjoying bodacious orgasms on a regular basis. These points come from “The Sex M.D.,” Dr. Madeleine Castellanos, who is a respected author and sex therapist in New York. She says, “Our sexual functioning cannot be separated from our overall health and happiness.” In other words, good orgasms = good health! 

Dr. C’s tips:

1) Getting to orgasm is easiest when you are relaxed and focused on what’s erotic for you.

2) Learning how to time your breathing can help you reach orgasm more easily.

3) Orgasms cause the release of increased DHEA which is what makes your skin glow and look younger.

4) Using Wet Platinum Premium Silicone Lubricant, accepted as a 510(k) medical device, makes great sex viable and long-lasting even in the shower.  Caution: Very slippery!

5) Orgasms come in all sizes and intensities, so take the time to explore all the variations.

6) Even though orgasms are fantastic, the less you focus on them as a goal in sex, the more likely you are to heighten your arousal and actually reach orgasm.

7) Orgasms help a woman’s brain relax more profoundly than any other activity, even meditation.

8)  If you aren’t getting regular orgasms from sexual activity, take matters into your own hands and masturbate so you can orgasm at least 3 times per week.

9) Using an intimate health and stimulation device strengthens the pelvic floor muscles, which are key to achieving healthy orgasms and also preventing incontinence.

The Day My Granny Panties Tried To Kill Me

I finally bought new bedroom furniture and as I was cleaning out my old chest of drawers, my underwear was splayed out on the bed, exposed for all to see.  I had no idea my husband had asked my 20-something year old nephew to come by and help us move the furniture.  To make matters worse, my 18 year-old daughter declares in front of everyone, “Mom, your underwear is so old! We need to go to a decent boutique and buy you some new ones.”  I’ll admit defeat.  It was time to step into this century.  To say I was a bit embarrassed would be an understatement but what happened next took me from pink-faced mom to eggplant purple with a side of “let me die right here”.

The adventure to the lingerie store started out fine enough.  My daughter decides she’s going to educate me on the styles that she and her contemporaries wear. Because you know, all teens think their parents live in a shell and have never heard of a thong, unless it’s worn on your feet.  Sure, I know what a thong is.  I personally prefer not to wear this type of butt-floss because I find them insanely uncomfortable.  Aside from those, my imagination was limited to the full brief (hi Granny) or basic bikini underwear usually found at any large major discount retailer.  Don’t ask me why, but I have always hated the word “panties”…it’s like the word “moist”. It just seems like a term that creeps out of a dark corner.  My mom called them underpants so I went ultra-modern and called them undies at our house.

Meanwhile, back at the lingerie shop, as the sales clerk approaches us, my daughter says, “My mom’s undies are so outdated.  It’s like she still has underwear from when I was born.” Ok, like I said, she’s 18, so possibly a bit of an over-exaggeration, but probably not that far off to be honest. The salesperson, let’s call her Jess, chuckles at this but, gratefully, acts unfazed.  She breaks her code of silence by asking me four little words that bring most women to their knees.  “What is your size?” Uhhhh…crickets here…uhhhh…size? “I have no idea. What sizes do they come in? Are they like S-M-L or are they in numbered sizes like 6-7-8-etc?”

“We carry both types of sizes” Jess says, “to make it easier.” Hmm, right, easier.  I must still look dazed and confused, standing there biting my lip, trying to figure out what my size is.  My sweet daughter, in her infinite wisdom, tries to help and explains: “Yeah, I doubt my mom is wearing the right size anyway and the size is probably so faded from too many trips through the washer and dryer, it’s not like we can just look at the tag to check.”  (Insert visible eye-roll by daughter and possible twinge by Jess here.)  “Hmmm, not wearing the right size” she says. Vertigo sets in.  What does she mean by this statement? Is Mom wearing undies that are swimmingly too big or are they too small, since, yes, I may have gained a few pounds since buying my last pair of (dramatic pause) panties… there I said it! Either way, I am not enjoying where this conversation is going, either is the salesclerk.    We get the size figured out, basically I am a size 6 or 7 depending on the style.  Success!

She then asks me what I usually wear and leads me over to a display of different styles.  Great, another decision.  Style choice.  It’s not getting any easier folks. Although I don’t wear large granny panties (Ooh, I said panties again! I am getting better at this), I do like my butt completely covered. Maybe it’s because I grew up in cold weather and the idea of having my butt cheeks hanging out makes me shiver. “Maybe it’s time for something new?” she goads.  I’m sure she meant style-wise, but all of this decision making was raising a hackle or two. “Yeah, that’s why I’m here, wasn’t looking to buy old underwear.” Hey, I thought it was funny.  Jess didn’t.  She’s starting to lose her patience with me, but thankfully she continues because it is painfully clear that I still need help.  The mannequins displayed in front of us are loaded with choices: Bikinis, V-kinis, Boy-Shorts, Hipsters, and Thongs in a variety of cuts like T-back, V-string, and G-string (in case you forgot, no way).  And all of those come in rise options like Low Rise, Petite Low Rise, (yeah, not on my end), Original Rise, Midrise, and Retro, which is a polite way of saying “Your Nana Never Saw Her Naval” rise.

As my head begins spinning like plates balancing precariously on a pole, I realize I am going to have to try something on to be sure.  The boy-shorts felt just like thongs to me, invading their way into the crack of my butt with ungodly force. The hipsters felt like they were not on all the way and I would want to keep tugging at them to pull them up, like a strapless evening gown beaten down by the inevitable gravity of the situation. Hipsters were out too.  I didn’t like the feeling of them clinging desperately to my thighs.  Disheartened, I slipped on a bikini style and discovered it is still one of my favorites.  Relegating myself to the same-old, same-old, I went for one last pair, the v-kini.  For those unfamiliar, it’s like a v-neck t-shirt only in bikini style.  I like the v-kini style because it rides higher on the hip but still has some style to it making me suddenly, triumphantly feel like this excursion had not been for naught.

Then, Jess drops the next question.  Sigh. More choices. “Do you prefer cotton, silk, lace, seamless or barely there panty so you can wear it under tight clothes?” Of course, the paranoia sets in. Is Jess inferring that my panty-line is showing?  Grappling with my mind to formulate an answer, in one breath, I squeeze out an incredibly pointed set of questions that is sure to bring Jess to just the right pair for me.  “Is there something with like a cotton-crotch area that is still pretty, some lace maybe or a waistband that has leopard print that would not have too many seams,  or at least a little sexier? But I don’t want silk, they just feel too slippery to me, like my butt is swimming in a pool.” My daughter glares at me with that ’Mommm’ you’re embarrassing me kind of look….HEY KID, I am still a woman too you know! “You started it” is all I have to say to her.

Finally, I end up with a set of cotton v-kinis, one in every color with a bit of lace trim.  I am sure Jess was relieved I had finally made a decision and a sizable purchase.  Although this trip was a bit rough at the beginning, I didn’t die after all. And if I had died of embarrassment, at least I would have been buried in my new, fresh, clean, sexy, fun panties!

A Man And His Member by David M. Matthews

Lately there has been a proliferation of bad news: Deadlocked Washington legislators, corporate insolvency, war, famine, natural disaster, and the final airing of “How I Met Your Mother.”  Thus, rather than deal with anything too serious in this column, I decided to be a little more light-hearted.  The following is the result - an ode to the bond between men and their “manhood,” aimed primarily at our female readers.

To say, “Penises are attached to men,” is to simply state a fact.  But saying, “Men are attached to their penises,” is to proclaim an absolute truth.

As you may already know, nothing is so prized a possession to the average male as his own penis.  And while straight men have little or no interest in the external plumbing of their brethren (other than as a supporting character in a porno), they can become downright sentimental when pondering their close relationship to their own equipment.  To put it bluntly, most men consider their penis to be their best friend.  Sure, we are hugely attracted to women.  And yes, we enjoy the hell out of spending an evening of football, hot wings and frosty brews with our buds.  And true, our slipper-fetching Fido is among our favorite companions.  But our true BFF is that roll of flesh we keep sequestered in our shorts.

And why is “cherish” the word we use to describe our penis?  Three reasons: Loyalty, reliability and shared common interests.  As long as we can remember, our penis has been there for us.  Before we even understood its function as “party central,” we appreciated it as the visible symbol of our masculinity, the release valve for our bursting bladders, and a dandy way to practice our cursive in the snow.  Then when puberty hit, and all our hormones executed a blitzkrieg of our nether regions, our penises were there to rise to the occasion.  Suddenly the whole world of sexuality opened up for us, and it was our trusty tumescent friends who led the way.  In times of loneliness, frustration or insomnia, it was our penises that helped us relieve our pent-up tensions.  Participation in sports was a fine source of stress relief, but sadly not always convenient or available.  Our trusty wieners, however, were ever-ready for action, even late at night and in inclement weather. 

As I’m sure some of you are well aware, our affection is so great, that many of us even endow our endowment with a nickname.  These monikers can run the gamut from whimsical (“Mr. Happy”) to blatantly boastful (“Sasquatch”).  And so concerned are we about our units’ continued good health, that we faithfully endeavor to make certain our “little soldiers” get regular exercise.  That’s just how considerate we guys are.

Now you may be asking yourself, “What about his testicles?  He hasn’t even touched on them.  What are they…chopped liver (I shudder at the very image)?”  Well, the truth is, as much as we love and respect this secondary erogenous zone and sperm manufacturing facility, our balls are the “Achilles heel” of our genital compound.  They are our weakest link; our most vulnerable spot.  Truthfully, we are barely even cognizant of their existence until they are the unfortunate victim of a blunt force trauma.  Then, however, their presence drowns out our awareness of virtually all the rest of our anatomy.  So, while we wouldn’t want to part with them, the periodic pain associated with our family jewels prevents us from rhapsodizing about them as we do their neighbor to the north.

So you see, our fondness for our own penises cannot be overstated, and our allegiance to them should not be underestimated.  And why would you be interested in any of this (optimistically hoping, of course, that you are - and haven’t been “put off” by my dissertation on “a dude and his dingus”)? Because despite our dogged devotion to our penises, there is an anatomical accoutrement over which you have exclusive dominion that we are even more obsessed with.  I am referring to, of course…the vulva. We’re absolutely nutty about it.  And luckily, so are our little pals.  In fact, this popular destination is the top-rated gated community in which ten-out-of-ten female-seeking penises prefer to reside.  Be it ever so warm and cozy, there’s no place like home.

Do You Nuru? The Playboy Morning Show Girls Do!

On July 7th, The Playboy Radio Morning Show hosts Kevin Klein and Andrea Lowell provided a blow by blow commentary as three gorgeous models demonstrated the Nuru body-on-body Japanese massage technique on each other. Thank you, Hugh Hefner!

In the West, massage mainly involves hands-on-body, but not so with Nuru. In the East, they invented a more effective way to stimulate the nerves in the skin by exponentially multiplying the surfaces of touch. Two participants (or more). Totally nude. Coated with Wet® Nuru™ Body-on-Body Massage Gel. Get the picture? Body-on-body enjoyment is the ultimate erotic massage experience. The ultimate “contact high.”

Model #1 began by massaging Wet Nuru gel into her breasts. “I could watch that forever,” said host Andrea Lowell, who clearly thought Model #1 was doing a great job. Next, Model #2 poured the Wet product onto her own breasts and then onto Model #1's back and proceeded to administer “the rack massage,” in which she slid her breasts over the other girl's back, then over her butt, and pretty soon it was hard to tell who was giving and who was receiving the massage. Happy ending: A good time was had by all!

So we know summer is in full swing, but isn't it time to turn up the heat and give your lover a sensuous Nuru massage.  What is Nuru Massage exactly? Nuru is a style of massage that originated in Japan. It is a sensual massage between partners using full body contact to relax the body and stimulate mutual sexual appetites, done with both partners fully nude, using a thick, ultra slippery massage gel. Wet® Nuru™ Massage Gel is available in two formulas, Original and Concentrate, both with moisturizing Aloe Vera, Seaweed and Grapeseed Extracts and soothing Chamomile Flower extract. These formulas are 
designed for long-lasting play. Wet® Nuru™ Massage Gel is made in the U.S.A. with the highest quality ingredients.

10 Reasons to Use Wet Platinum

Why Wet Platinum? Here are 10 of the top reasons to use Wet Platinum.

1. Wet Platinum Stays Wet Longer.
Wet Platinum is a silicone-based lubricant. Unlike water-based lubricants, silicone molecules are large and are not absorbed, so they remain on the surface of the skin. Because Wet Platinum contains no water, it does not evaporate either, giving you longer-lasting, slippery, friction-free love making and play sessions. There is no mood-breaking, stopping to re-apply necessary. Platinum is always slick, guaranteed never sticky, and doesn’t dry out.

2. Wet Platinum Makes Sex Better.
Vaginal dryness and anal sex without lube nearby, is sure to stop pleasurable intercourse in its tracks. At least one partner at this point may feel turned off and be thinking “I could really use some lubricant right now!” With the mood already at stake, you’re going to need something you can grab quick, apply, and be able to get your groove on. Wet Platinum is the best choice because it’s easy as 1, 2, and 3! Grab it, squeeze it, apply it and you’re ready to go. Absolutely no need to worry because Platinum gives you the perfect slippery glide, and won’t become messy, clumped up, dried out, or sticky. Platinum also won’t burn or disrupt your pH Balance. And since it won’t dry out, you just need a small amount. Apply Wet Platinum to your penis, vagina, sex toys*, and interior/exterior of your condom or anywhere else your heart desires, slip right in, work your magic and enjoy the ride.

*Please note that Wet Platinum is not recommended for use with silicone toys.

3.  Wet Platinum is Safer.
A 2010 Study by Microbicides: Building Bridges in HIV Prevention, named the Use Of Lubricants, Unprotected Anal Sex and the Risk of HIV, compared five lubricants against each other (Astroglide, Elbow Grease, ID Glide, KY Jelly and Wet Platinum). A sixth product named PRÉ was used as a control. The study was looking for the safest lubricant that did the least amount of damage to cellular walls, during anal sex. Damage to cell walls during sex can cause tearing and increase the likelihood of transmission of STI's. The study concluded that "Wet Platinum and PRÉ were the safest. The hyperosmolar nature of the other lubricant gels was associated with cellular toxicity and may lead to increased risk of HIV infection." Wet was the only silicone-based lubricant in the study. The others were water-based. This and one other study examining the effects of sexual lubricants used in anal sex were presented in April at the International Microbicides Conference.

Safety Precaution:  Wet Platinum is very slippery so take care to clean any spills immediately. 

4. Wet Platinum Has Many Uses. 
Dab it in your hair for some shine. Condition your skin and Latex Fetish Wear. Use it for vaginal and/or anal sex. Masturbate in the shower or in bed. Use a palm size amount to give your partner a sensual massage (and it won’t dry up!). Use it to get a really close shave, but be careful not to slip on it in the shower. Put a drop of Platinum on a sticking door or cabinet to stop the squeaking, or use it to untangle knotted bicycle or jewelry chains. Glide it over your body and slip easily in to your wetsuit. Detangle the tail and mane of your horse. The possibilities are endless!

5.  Wet Platinum Uses the Highest Quality Ingredients and is a 510k Accepted Medical Device.
Wet Platinum uses ingredients that are non-GMO (Genetically Modified Organism), gluten-free, vegan friendly, and contains only plant derived glycerin. Wet Platinum is an FDA (Food and Drug Administration) accepted, Class II medical device. It is also certified Kosher.  That’s right!  Platinum contains no animal-based ingredients and is manufactured and self-certified according to guidelines set forth by the Rabbinical Council of California.

6.  No Smell. No Taste. 
A common complaint about personal lubricants is the way they taste and/or smell.
We take this complaint seriously. While Wet Platinum is an accepted medical device, it does not smell or taste like an antiseptic or any other chemical. It’s completely odorless, has no taste and is considered harmless if ingested.

7.  Doctor Recommended.
The Wet Platinum formula is non-irritating.  Since it has no pH, it won’t disrupt a woman’s pH balance.  Wet products are sampled in medical offices throughout the United States and Canada and have received stellar patient reviews and recommendations from medical doctors. Read more about why Wet is doctor recommended.

8.  Available Everywhere.
Wet has been widely available in love boutiques since 1989.  We understand that not everyone is comfortable visiting their local adult boutique and not all of us live in a city where adult boutiques exist. The adult boutiques do offer a wider selection of Wet products and other intimacy products so check them out if you have the opportunity.  For your convenience, Wet is now widely available in all major pharmacies and mass market retailers across the United States and Canada, and is available online as well, with discreet shipping at

“Not a day goes by that I do not mention your products,” says Dr. Jacob Klein. “The availability in CVS and Walgreens has certainly helped.”

9.  Can Be Used in Water.
There really is nothing better than hot sex in the shower. Besides installing handles on your shower walls to hold on to during your steamy sessions, the next essential item is a bottle of waterproof lubricant. Take silicone-based Wet Platinum in the shower with you, squirt some on your fingers, apply to self and/or partner and you’re ready to go. Wet Platinum can also be used in Jacuzzis, lakes, rivers, oceans, bathtubs, and swimming pools. The water will roll over the lube like a bead of water on a leaf. When you’re done and want to clean up just lather up and rinse off, or carry a package of baby wipes on you for fast efficient clean up.
Caution:  Silicone lubricants will break down the silicone seals on your hot tubs, spas and pools over time so it’s best to use it sparingly.

10.  It’s Good Karma! 
We believe that companies are like individuals, each creating their own "Karma." Giving back has been paramount to us since our inception. Through our charitable giving program, we contribute to the work of more than 300 non-profit organizations worldwide.

5 Reasons Doctors Recommend Wet Personal Lubricant

Sex. It’s something we all do. It’s something we all think about. It’s something we all desire. But what happens when sex becomes painful or you just can’t get aroused?

For men, arousal disorders typically come in the form of failure to have or maintain an erection long enough for sex to occur. The solution is simple: Viagra.

For women the answer is not so easy. Women face a number of issues that can decrease her libido, making sex painful, irritating and quite frankly a chore. It’s a frustrating topic because the vast majority of reasons for a decreased libido are things out of a woman’s control: menopause, breast-feeding, disease, and side-effects of medications, to name a few. All these issues result in unenjoyable sex with their partner, which in turn leads to a lack of intimacy in their relationship(s), which in turn leads to having less sex. It’s a vicious cycle so serious that professions exist solely to solve it: marriage counselors, sex therapists, post-menopausal practitioners, medical doctors, and so forth and so on. We here at Wet decided to speak with some of these doctors, and were overwhelmed by their enthusiasm for our product and how it has helped their patients regain a new sense of intimacy in to their lives.

Here are the top 5 reasons Medical Professionals recommend Wet Personal Lubricant:

1.  Wet is an over-the-counter solution for temporary relief from vaginal drynessVaginal dryness is a common sexual arousal disorder. The causes of vaginal dryness are numerous, with the most common being: menopause, breast-feeding, disease, medication side-effects, stress/anxiety, hormonal imbalances, and low self-esteem. When vaginal dryness occurs, and a lubricant is not applied to either party prior to penetration, the likely result is that sex will feel like sandpaper. When that happens, her muscles shut down and her vagina says “No More. Game Over”.

The good news is, this situation can be prevented and fixed.

Doctor Lauren Streicher, Associate Clinical Professor of OBGYN at Northwestern University’s Medical School and author of Love Sex Again, recommends a silicone-based lubricant as a solution for vaginal dryness during sex. “Silicone is slippery, long lasting, latex compatible and does not carry the risk of causing a vaginal yeast infection,” Streicher says. She recommends a silicone-based lubricant over a water-based lubricant, because it is longer lasting and less likely to cause irritation.

Dr. Erin Gertz, Instructor of Obstetrics, Gynecology and Reproductive Science at Mount Sinai Hospital also recommends Wet Platinum for vaginal dryness. She tells us “I’ve recommended Wet to many of my menopausal patients and they love these lubricants. They are so happy to have a non-hormonal alternative for vaginal atrophy systems.”

2.  Wet is an excellent choice for menopausal and breast-feeding women.
Menopause can be an emotional time for women, not only because of the mood changes brought on by the vast decrease in her estrogen levels, but because she often believes it means the end of having a healthy sex life. Breast-feeding women also experience a decrease in her levels of estrogen, which often leads to the emergence of temporary menopausal like symptoms.

We discussed vaginal dryness above, which is an inevitable side effect of going through changes to estrogen levels. However, burning and painful intercourse are also hallmarks of decreased estrogen levels. Using a Wet Personal Lubricant that meets your needs will certainly help overcome these problems.

“I prefer the silicone-based lubricants for my post-menopausal and breast-feeding patients,” Dr. Stephanie Lee tells Wet. “I end up writing ‘Wet Platinum’ on pieces of paper and sending patients off on a search to their local pharmacy!”

3.  Wet Brings Couples Closer Together. It doesn’t take a doctor’s advice to figure out that physical intimacy is an important part of any romantic relationship. When arousal disorders arise in either partner, it can create friction and feelings of grief. Every relationship experiences its ups and downs, but an arousal disorder can create long-lasting ‘down times’.  Fortunately, Wet Lubricants, Inttimo by Wet™ Aromatherapy Massage and Bath Oils and Wet® Nuru™ Body-On-Body Massage Gel can help bring that spark back in to your life, to make you and your partner feel as good as new and feel closer than ever.

“Wet Lubricants products are a great ‘ice-breaker’ for patients that have arousal disorders to go home and try,” says Dr. Christine Isaacs.

Since Wet makes many products, ranging from silicone-based, water-based,  hybrid (water + silicone), cooling, warming, anal and flavored lubricants, to Wet® wOw Clitoral Arousal Gel, and a ‘his-her together’ lubricant, Dr. Isaacs is right. There are an array of options to choose from, that will certainly spice up your sex life.

“When my patients simply ask their partner to apply Wet Lubricant, that itself is a positive factor in helping many inhibited couples learn to make love to one another. It gives people permission to be openly sexual and be ‘daring’,” says Dr. Kenneth Pollock, Director of the Sexual Health Practice at New York Medical College.

4.  Wet Is Available Everywhere.  Wet has been widely available in love boutiques since 1989.  We understand that not everyone is comfortable visiting their local adult boutique. And not all of us live in a city where adult boutiques exist. Wet is now available in all major pharmacies and mass market retailers across the United States and Canada.  The adult boutiques offer a wider selection of Wet products and other intimacy products.  Wherever you choose to go, you’ll find Wet there. 

“Not a day goes by that I do not mention your products,” says Dr. Jacob Klein. “The availability in CVS and Walgreens has certainly helped.”

5.  Wet is the best. Wet is worth it.  Dr. Michael Goodman, pioneer of the development and advancement of Minimally Invasive Gynecological Surgery and author of MEN-opause, The Book For Men, tells Wet, “I LOVE your products and they are #1 on my list of recommended personal lubricants for my patients (as well as #1 off the shelf at home, but that is another matter). A major part of my practice involves sexual medicine, and I always counsel regarding external lubricants. Favorites are your 'Wet Original' and 'Wet Platinum'. I just bought a bottle of Wet Platinum and have it at my girlfriend’s house.”

Dr. Lauren Streicher recently appeared on The Steve Harvey Show, holding a bottle of Wet Platinum in her hands, recommending a silicone-based lubricant to the 40% of women who currently experience a sexual arousal disorder. She explains that “...while household products such as olive oil, baby oil or lotions may be more affordable, they are not recommended because of their potential for yeast infections, irritation and not being condom compatible. Cheap household items Are not designed to be used in or around the vagina.”

What it boils down to is you get what you pay for. Wet Lubricants can enhance your life. Dr. Colleen Swayze, board certified Obstetrician Gynecologist agrees. “Wet is a Godsend,” she says.
