Sex is good for your health—it’s a natural immunity-booster, painkiller, and anti-ager. So why shouldn’t your personal lubricant be just as good for you? A new crop of products are stepping up to cater to your gluten insensitivity, your strict vegan diet, or your preference for all things organic.

Personal lubricants aren’t just for the sexually adventurous. In fact, once estrogen production starts to slow down prior to menopause, experiencing vaginal dryness is common, says Mary Jane Minkin, MD, a clinical professor of obstetrics, gynecology, and reproductive sciences at Yale University’s School of Medicine.
