I’m a huge fan of lube. There, I said it. It’s an amazing product that can make sex better—and get you prepped for doing the deed when your body is a little slow to warm up and you’re ready to go, like, now. Once you start using it, it’s hard to go back.
Now, lube isn’t just a handy tool for enhancing sex, it also may help prevent the spread of cancer-causing HPV infections. Studying 400 women, scientists at McGill University are currently trying to find out how effective a particular lube, called Divine 9, is at blocking HPV. Apparently, the lube showed the ability to stop HPV transmission in lab tests, so researchers are doing further investigation to see just how helpful it might be in curbing the spread of the disease.
