    Vaginal dryness is widely prevalent among aging women, and is a notorious libido killer. The common treatment, petroleum-based lubricant, is often gloppy and sticky. A silicone lubricant is a slicker alternative to dealing with dryness. It’s less messy and lasts longer. With prices starting as low as $10, this is a simple and affordable solution.
