Condoms are already lubricated, but using a lubricating gel is strongly recommended: not only does it give extra lubrication, it will also add to the pleasure and the thrills. Nowadays, there is a wide choice of gels available that produce a variety of delicious and exciting effects, including warming, cooling, heightened sensitivity, delaying action, flavoured, etc, while also providing extra lubrication and so reducing friction that can cause the condom to split.
