I'm bf and need some extra "help" when dh and I dtd. I've been using a generic KY jelly but it has all kinds of bad things in it, I really want to find something else to use.

I've heard about coconut oil, but we are tta right now and using latex condoms, so coconut oil doesn't work with them.

Any other ideas?

Why doesn't coconut oil work with them? That's what we always use.

Oil on condoms weakens the latex and could cause them to break.

What about glycerin or I've heard egg whites work.

OT, but coconut oil does work great if you're not using condoms.

DH and I just dealt with this - I'm reaching menepause and DH id circ'd so we are having some issues. Until he has made more progress restoring, we had to find something that would work.

We did a lot of searching and experimenting. We found a natural vegan lube that works well but it's really expensive. Hathor Aphrodisia Lube. It's around $30 per tube, but it met all of our specs.

1 Tblsp of flax seeds simmered in 1 cup of water for about 20 minutes makes a great lube (strain immediately and cool; store in fridge for up to two weeks). You can use it for hair gel, too!

i'm 37 weeks pregnant and we realized evening primrose oil is awesome. it is supposed to ripen my cervix for labor, so i don't recommend it if you're pregnant and earlier than 36 weeks, but it has no smell, is not sticky and is just awesome. we cut the capsule with little scissors and put some on him and some on me right before dtd. it really works great.

Natural lubricants that come to mind first are:

#1 BREAST MILK, you are bf after all,
#2 Saliva (totally grosses me out, however it does work)
