Y’all know by now, I think lube is important, and doesn’t get the recognition it deserves in the bedroom, or.. The workplace. Lube can be an incredibly effective tool in the kits of sex professionals and sex workers. I know it’s been a big aid for me in the video work that I do, but it extends to all areas of the sex work industry.
The Benefits of Lube for Sex Workers & their Clients
For long cum shows or sessions
Depending on the day, sex workers can be on the clock for a long time. Cum shows for streaming models can become particularly enduring, and full services workers might find themselves in extended penetrative sessions. Lube comes to the rescue of that raw vagina feel we all know and hate when you’ve had sex for longer than 30 minutes. Keep the party going with breaks, water, and lube!
It’s great for the long haul. If you’re doing a long Lush toy/vibrator show you’re going to eventually use al your naturally lubrication up, and lube helps keep things slick!

Porn creators and sex workers are doing the most with their assholes, everything from dildo fucking to fisting to spitting marshmallows out. I’ve seen so much ridiculous, talented and daring things done to sex worker buttholes in my time. None of that would be possible without lube though!! Lube keeps everything slick & safe, so that assholes can be prepped, and objects can be eased into them. I recommend a thicker lube for anal, personally. My favourite lube to coat my bootyhole in SUTIL Rich.
There is no anal happening without lube. Whether I’m on cam on creating content that’s anally focused, Sliquid Sassy or GoodCleanLove. I can also attest to it being visually appealing for those watching.

Prep for taking dildos or dicks
Speaking of incredible sex feats, have you seen the dildos some of us take?? Giant, realistic or fantasy dildos are a very popular category for porn creators right now. Of course, vaginas & assholes need to be prepped and stretched for taking such monstrous sizes of phalises. Lube is the number one tool for helping us take such big items – it helps us not hurt ourselves when we’re making content for your pleasure.
Even for just regular sized penetratables (dicks & dildos), lube can help smooth the process along!
I can’t film using any of my dildos without lube! It’s essential for any penetration in my content because I can’t get wet enough by myself to try and get it inside. I end up irritating myself if I try and do something without it! Plus it makes it way more comfortable for a vid

Getting & Appearing Wet
For a variety of reasons, not every person, or sex worker with a vagina can get wet for their desired sex work related activity. Arousal in general can be difficult to navigate (I recommend checking out Emily Yosanski’s Come As You Are for more information on that), but some times we don’t have the time to get aroused. Here’s what some sex workers said in regards to getting and appearing wet…
I could sing the praises of lube all day, every day. The first biggest thing for me is that I take a lot of requests for content and a lot of the time that content does not arouse me. Enter the lube, making my action appear and sound realistic. ???

I’m on a bunch of medications, so I just don’t get visibly wet when I’m aroused. When I make clips, lube makes it look “wet” on camera…it makes up for what my body can’t do?? I can assure my viewers “my pussy is wet,” but it’s more appealing for them to be able to see/hear it

I’m on so many meds that it’s hard for me to get REALLY wet, but even before all the meds, lube was always a must for every encounter. The wetter the better right? I don’t understand why some men scoff at lube — it makes sex so much more enjoyable for both parties.

Cum lube (simulating creampies)
Probably one of my favourite reasons for using lube when I’m working, personally. If you’re looking to recreate a cum shot or creampie, lube is the best way to do so! Choose a creamy looking lube, load it up into a syringe, and voila! Your very own cum shot cannon. Cum lube is also used in squirting dildos, where the lube can be pumped through a tube in the middle of the dildo for ejaculation. Choosing a good quality lube over other materials in this situation allows for you simulate cum in a safe and natural-looking way. These a popular props amongst indie porn makers like myself.
Jerk off Instructions
When I put out a call on Twitter asking for sex worker’s experiences with lube, this tweet from Cheryl Black brought up a great point which I didn’t even think about:
I recommend various lube for my callers many who still use *gasp* lotion or petroleum jelly. After they go out and purchase my recommendation on their next call I instruct them how to use it. Now, I need the lube handy to go through each step using a model. ? #JOI

Sex workers are not just sexual entertainers and service providers, but educators as well.
Lube decreases STI transmission
Utilizing delicious slippery lube during sex can actually aid in preventing STIs. Lube reduces friction, and in doing so reduces the number of tiny cuts and tears that can happen during sex. Lube can also lower the chance a condom tearing too, so it can aid in reducing risk of transmitting infections.
As someone who doesn’t have any “problems getting wet” or anything like that, in my opinion lube is something that everyone should try to use. It helps ease any potential of pain or discomfort in any form of sex & assuming your body can handle it, it makes sex inherently safer.
