Let's be candid for a second... People use lube. They might not talk about it, but -- let's face it -- sometimes lubes are necessary, and sometimes they just add more fun to sex.

Makes it a little less embarrassing to buy.)

The company also makes a lavender rose -- but we'd probably come to the same conclusion with that one. Perhaps the brand's Almost Naked flavor would be best -- we're guessing that's the unscented one? We'll know for next time.
