Tuan Phan C02542407Psychology 165: Human Sexuality 1Professor: Olga Perez-StableReaction Paper #2I would like to share my first experience of buying and using lubricant with my girlfriend. While taking Psychology class, I have been learning about human sexuality and how to practice sex safety. After having multiple experiences of dryness and slightly painful intercourse with my girlfriend, wedecided to try out lubricant.First, my girlfriend was hesitant. She thought the idea of squirting greasy clear gel on my penis was somewhat strange. I had to explain to her that part of having a healthy sexual experience was to look past the initial uncomfortable part and realize that it would result in better intercourse for us both. I let her know that it was very harmless and that she would not feel any discomfort whatsoever. I then explained to her the different types of lube that we had learned about: silicone based, water based, and oil based. Although water sounded the least intimidating, we had both agreed to go with the silicone-based lube because we would not need as much and we could use it in the shower.After the first time trying the lube, we had both become much more comfortable with the idea of using the lubricant, but the thought of actually going into a sex toy store and buying it was definitely exited. My girlfriend
wanted to go into the adult store instead of the pharmacy to purchase the lubebecause she thought the store would provide more variety of lubricant and she could talk comfortably with a store associate how to use the lubricant properly.Overall, I learned that:1. Lubricant definitely helps make sex go smoothly.2. There is no use being nervous when purchasing it.3. Explaining the purpose of lube to your partner in a mature, logical manner can help them understand.4. Now that I have tried this brand of lube, I should go to a sex shop to have agreater variety to choose from.5. I am now curious about other products that could possibly enhance me and my partner sexual experience.
