LUBRICANTS AREN’T ENGINE OIL
The number of questions and emails I’ve received in the last couple of days from you people ehn! Thank you for trusting me with your thoughts!
In the next couple of days, I will attempt to make a post randomly to address them…if you stay with me!
But before I start putting out those posts, let’s conclude on our previous conversations on Lubricants. The last and final types of Lubes are:
There are two types of oil-based lubricants: natural (think coconut oil or butter) and synthetic (think mineral oil or Vaseline).
Generally, oil-based lubricants are safe to use, inexpensive, and easily accessible. But, if you can opt for a water-based lubricant first. Oils can irritate your skin and stain fabric.
Natural-based oil lubricants — like avocado, coconut, vegetable, and olive oils — are great for genital massages and all types of sexual play. They’re also safe for the vagina and safe to eat.
Synthetic oil-based lubricants, including body lotions and creams, are good for external masturbation, but not much else.
Both natural and synthetic oil-based lubricants can destroy latex condoms, cause condom failure, and stain fabrics.
Synthetic products may irritate your vagina. They’re also harder to clear out of your body than their natural counterparts. This could lead to a vaginal infection.
Natural oil-based lubricants aren’t the only natural products on the market. Some companies have produced organic or vegan lubricants made of botanicals or other eco-friendly ingredients.
Many natural lubricants are free of paraben, a commonly used preservative with established health risks. They also use organic ingredients, which are better for the environment and safe for your vagina.
All-natural lubricants may have a shorter shelf life. They may also cost more than a traditional lubricant.
