One of the keys to great sex with a big dick is lube. No mater how much foreplay you do, there's a very high likelihood you'll need to use some sexual lubricants to ease things along. There's no shame in that; you're working with a very thick penis here and it's just not something most vaginas are built to handle.

Lubes come in three primary classes: water-based, silicone-based, and oil-based (the latter of which is not safe for use with latex condoms). Water-based personal lubes are, as the name implies, built with H₂O as their base. They typically use glycerin, glycol, and other slick, viscous fluids to create a body-safe lubricant that's great for sex. The caveat is that the water tends to be absorbed by our fleshy bodies and evaporated by the heat we generate, and become sticky and less-slick, so water-based lubes often require frequent reapplication to keep working optimally. On the upside, that all of the stuff added to water-based lube is water-soluble also means it is easily washed off of the body and out of any fabrics it might get on.

There are many options out there for awesome water-based lubes — these are the best.
