Here's our 101 on the best lubes for glass sex toys.
Water-based is often considered the best lube because they’re non-staining, as well as the most user-friendly as it’s considered the purest with water being its main ingredient that is just about as natural as it gets. This makes it the best lube for users with skin sensitivities or vaginal irritation.

Water-based is the best lube for all kinds of sexual activities — with or without a partner. It can be used for penetration with a penis or with your favorite glass sex toy — water-based lubricant is compatible with all materials, opening the door to endless pleasure.
Water-based is also the best lube for people that are looking for a lube that is condom-safe, making it extra-friendly for couples play. It’s the best lube for first-timers who want to start with a formula that’s typically easy to apply, non-sticky and non-staining! Another one of the benefits of water-based lube is that it is mess-free and easily washes off of sheets and clothing, making it the best lube for sex play or solo play with your glass sex toy on your good sheets that you don’t want to ruin.
While water-based lube may have many benefits, it’s also not ideal for rough or long-lasting sexual activity because it is known to require a lot of re-application to maintain its smooth glide. Luckily, there’s plenty of ways to explore your sexual pleasure with glass sex toys.
If you feel like water-based is your best lube option, you can still use it for all kinds of stimulation. We recommend starting with external stimulation of the clit using the tip of your glass sex toy, which can help to increase your own natural lubrication and make it extra slippery for orgasmic penetration.

Silicone-based lube is often preferred for its long-lasting glide that can allow for long, intense sessions of partner or solo play with your favorite glass sex toy. Unlike other sex toy materials that may break down when they come into contact with this ingredient, silicone-based is the best lube to use with glass sex toys. Silicone-based lubricant enhances the slick feel of glass sex toys by making them even more slippery to provide the satisfying glide you need for deep, satisfying penetration.

Additionally, silicone-based lubricant will leave your skin leaving soft and silky afterward. Silicone also is hypoallergenic and body-safe even for those with sensitive skin or allergies.
Of course, the most important quality that makes silicone-based the best lube to use with glass sex toys is how long it lasts. Unlike water-based lube, silicone-based requires less reapplication and stays slick during longer periods.
Hybrids and Other Lubes
If you want the best of both worlds — the natural feel of water-based lube or the long-lasting feel of a silicone lube, then a hybrid can deliver on both fronts. Also compatible with all glass toys, a hybrid lube can satisfy all of your needs. A hybrid conveniently can be your go-to for sex in the shower or for some traditional sensual play in the bedroom.
You also have other options for lubricants to use with your glass sex toys. Oil-based lubricants may not be safe to use with condoms, and they may be difficult to wash off of your sheets, clothing, or toys made of other materials — but the versatile glass sex toy can be used with oil-based lube. You could even use a glass sex toy and massage oil to provide satisfying back massage or other sore parts of your body that require attention.
