Do I need to use lube with condoms?

Using lube with condoms can increase pleasure. It can also reduce discomfort and the chance of condom failure. Many condoms come with lubricant on them, but you can use a little extra. Try to avoid oil-based lubricants (including massage oil, hand lotion, and Vaseline) because they can cause condoms to break.
