StagShop Canada is running an advent calendar with a new deal every day. Today’s deal is one of the best offers that Eva has seen: buy one get one free on lube. The discount is automatically taken off in your cart.
This deal is for the adults – so send away the kiddies while you read about it. Lube is a necessity of almost any healthy sexual foray whether by yourself or with another. It keeps things well lubricated and in optimal condition. This buy one get one free deal from Stag Shop is nice because lube can be expensive.
For lube noobs, let us cover a couple basics first. What is the difference between a silicone-based lube and a water-based lube?
Water-based: This is the most versatile lube as it can be use with either polyurethane or latex condoms. You can add water to get it slipperier and it washes off with water for no-mess afterwards. In addition, water-based lubes can be used with silicone toys, which is a large part of today’s toy market. Durex makes a great water-based lube called 2 in 1 Soothing Play Massage Gel & Lubricant for $17.99. Purchase one 200ml bottle, and get a second lube for free.
Silicone-based: This lube can also be used with both polyurethane and latex condoms. However, it cannot be used with silicone toys – you will wreck your precious Lelo if you do. One of the benefits of a silicone lube is that it does not dilute or wash off with water. That way you can use it while playing in the bathtub or shower and not lose the lubrication. Tenga’s Flip Air Lotion Solid Black 75ml is a silicone-based lube currently priced at $14.99. I added it to my cart with the Durex water-based lube, and it came down to $0.
The offer excludes restricted brands like Lelo or Jopen. There are also some odd exclusions that are not restricted, like a few Kama Sutra products. I think it is being strict on the definition of “lube” so a “pleasure balm” does not qualify for the discount even though it is in the lube section. I found getting the discount finicky. Sometimes I could not have two of the same product in my cart, but it would work with two different products.
Stag Shop offers free shipping on orders of $49 or more. Check out the Stag Shop each day for their next deal on the advent calendar.
