Purple Durex condoms and Durex Play Massage 2 in 1 Aloe Vera on a bedside table.


Looking to excite a woman? Or, if you’re a woman, want something more pleasing for yourself? Some of the best pleasure starts with foreplay – sexual acts that happen before penetration or intercourse. So, let’s get deeper, together.

“Be smooth” is an expression we hear all the time. The jury’s still out on whether it means “keep it up” or “be extremely cool” but, for us, it’s all about lube baby. With regard to foreplay, it’s important to keep an open mind about sexual experiences and ideas especially when it comes to pleasing her in bed. We recommend soaring to orgasmic heights with new & classic lubricants. Join the lubrication nation. But remember: lube is NOT a contraceptive.

1. How Important Is Foreplay, Really?

Sexual relationships or moments of eroticism aren’t child’s play. Fulfilling both an emotional and physical purpose, foreplay helps ease both the mind and body by being the gateway love drug in becoming more comfortable for sex. Particularly in exciting a woman, foreplay is super important because it may take them longer to become aroused.

If you’re a woman or with a woman, don’t discount the art of fingering to stimulate more arousal. But to help pleasure her better during foreplay, we circle it back to the holy grail of smoothness: lube.

2. How Lubes Contribute To Her Pleasure

When it comes to pleasing your wife, partner, or friend-with-benefit, you typically think of getting jewellery, cooking them a meal, doing house chores without being asked, getting flowers etc. but we suggest making women pleased through the power of lube.

Lubes make foreplay and sexual connections smoother, wetter and slicker, because they’re designed to reduce the friction and elevate the experience. Not only do they help pleasure women, but some lubes help ease vaginal dryness. And, when paired with Durex condoms*, they make for a highly protective sex extravaganza. Let’s take a dip into the lube pleasure pool.

3. Exciting Durex Lubes Perfect For Women

Exciting a woman happens in many ways, but an underrated form of excitement begins with a good lubricant. Some are warmer, while others are cooler and more tingly – and another example is straight up super intense. Whether you’re looking for a water-based, silicone-based, or massage lube, or even a performance gel that can intensify her pleasure – Durex has all the wet options, so let’s dive in head first.
