  • I need help selecting the right lube

    Well... that's pretty straight-forward.

    I know I'm only 19, but my BC has really affected my ability to lubricate myself, and I don't really want to switch off of it, because it's the kind that only gives me my period four times a year (which is nice).

    I tried to pick out lube once, but I had no idea what to look for. I ended up just picking up a bottle of KY Warming Jelly, which works in normal circumstances.... but not so well in others. The stuff starts to burn really badly during high-friction sex, and if I get any little cuts from the rough play, the lube stings it just like alcohol would.
    Would normal, non-warming lube be the solution, or is there gentler stuff that won't burn if we decide to be a little rough with each other?

    Advice/tips would be appreciated.

    • Also try keeping a glass of water handy to dip your fingers into and add a bit of extra liquid to the lube occasionally. SOme lubes tend to thicken a bit

        • I have tried a bunch of lubes. The best one I have found is astroglide. It stays silky,never gets sticky and wipes off good. I got mine at an adult store but walmart carries it too. I would warn against the ky yours and mine, bad stuff. sticky and irritating. Have fun!!!

            COCONUT OIL !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! tHis is the best you can use. Super gentle. keep it in fridge so it gets hard. then before sex break off pieces and insert in whichever opening is appropriate for your situation. it will melt and lube you exactly where you need it most. use after clean up too for soothing.

            • I never would have thought of coconut oil. Isn't it uncomfortable waiting for the stuff to melt? I'm not so sure I'd like sticking ice in my vagina...

              • Sticking things that contain sugars can cause some nasty infections, be careful.
