Lubricant use is common among American women, especially during partnered intercourse and sexual play, according to a new study.
Researchers from the United States surveyed 1,559 women between the ages of 18 and 91. Their mean age was 46.8 years. Through an online questionnaire, the participants answered questions about their lubricant use.
Sixty-six percent of the women had used a lubricant at least once during their lifetime. Over twenty percent had used one during the previous 30 days.
The most common reasons women used lubricants included added comfort during sex, added fun, and enhanced foreplay.
The study was first published online in February in The Journal of Sexual Medicine. Please click here for more details.
