How do I apply YES®?

As we all vary so much, we prefer not to be prescriptive about the application or recommending amounts.

YES® OB plant-oil based is a rich, healing emollient which has a thick consistency at room temperature and a lovely smooth liquid at body temperature. YES® OB plant-oil based is made from skin nourishing butters and oils and is a long-lasting intimate lubricant and a great massage oil. Apply the lubricant with your fingers.

YES® WB is a gel that becomes less thick, more liquid as it is used. Rub a little in your fingers and you will see how it liquefies. For use as a personal lubricant, YES® WB can be applied before and or during lovemaking. Privately, before lovemaking, women can put it on, in and around the vulva and vagina, using fingers to insert the lubricant well into the vagina, as well as to the labia. Applying lubricant during lovemaking can also become part of the intimate experience, enjoyed by both partners.

If you are in any doubt about how much to use, go for more not less, water based lubricants are not known for lasting a long time (that’s one of the reasons why we make YES® OB plant-oil based). YES® WB contains no glycerine. Glycerine makes lubricants feel sticky and can dry tissues too. So using lots of YES® WB will not leave you feeling sticky.

YES® VM use about 5ml (a teaspoon full). Put it on where the dryness occurs and depending on the severity of your dryness you may need to use the product more frequently. YES® WB is very soothing and can calm sore itchy tissues as well.

YES® O YES is supplied with a rollerball to help limit the very small amount of YES® O YES you need to your fingers.  Once on the fingers is can be applied to the vulva as desired.  

Please note that YES® OB plant-oil based is not compatible with condoms, all oils (natural or synthetic) seem to dissolve latex.

For all YES® products: Their purity and naturalness means there are no ingredients that have concerns attached to them and they have no known side effects. So we advise that you use YES® products liberally for best effect.


How do you store YES® products?

Various things can cause the life of any product to be shortened, extreme temperatures (leaving it on a sunny window sill) or the addition of bacteria or fungi when removing the lid/cap.

As YES® products are made from natural ingredients, they are more sensitive to harsh conditions than their synthetic chemical cousins (actually more distant than cousins). Do not leave them on a sunny window sill, keep them at room temperature, no freezing or boiling and keep the lid on when you are not using them. They are not too sensitive, so you don’t have to turn out the light although they do like a little candle light!


Where can I apply YES®?

The versatile YES® range includes products which are ideal for lovemaking, play, body glide, massage and suitable for vaginal, anal and oral use.

YES® WB water based and YES® OB plant oil based intimate lubricants can be applied to the penis and the vaginal area, to enhance pleasure and assist penetration.

To maximise comfort and reduce friction, please apply generously.

YES® OB plant oil based has the added advantage of being a luxurious massage oil, and can be applied for all-over body glide, as well as for intimate massage.
