Oil-Based personal lubricants are similar to silicone-based lubricants since they are longer lasting. There are a few differences though, such as oil-based lubricants are NOT latex condom compatible, and using them may result in a higher rate of infection. Most of the time when you see an oil based lubricant it's in a cream form. These are great for male masturbation and anal sex. Most massage oils are also oil-based.
