It's Amazon Prime Day! Today's best Prime Day deals include all sorts of fun gadgets, but it's also a really good time to pick up boring essentials on the cheap. If you're all set for washing tablets and batteries, how about some slightly less boring essentials? Because there are loads of lube and condom deals included in the Prime Day sales.
If you want some guidance on what to buy, we have a guide to the best lube for a variety of things, as well as an explainer breaking down the differences between water- vs oil- vs silicone-based lube. We also have an article on the best condoms (again, it's not too complicated, but sometimes it's helpful to have a bit of guidance).
You do need to be an Amazon Prime subscriber to take advantage of these deals, but you can still access them via the free 30-day trial. If it doesn't suit you, you can cancel during that period to avoid being charged. Sign up to Prime here.
