I know there has to be a more environmentally-friendly choice for personal lubricants out there. Any recommendations? A friend suggested jojoba oil, but my bottle says "external use only." I obviously don't want to use anything pertroleum based and KY (water-based?) bugs the crap out of me. I just want a plain, unscented lubricant...not something that "tingles and creates a warming sensation."

I third the coconut oil. Only thing I'll use now.

Coconut oil, unless you're using latex condoms or diaphram. Any oil can break down latex, making the barrier unreliable.

I know that I purchased an all-natural, water based personal lubricant several years ago, but I've forgotten the brand. Maybe search around at www.drugstore.com and see what they have available? I like browsing that website, even if I purchase elsewhere, because it lets you read all the packaging information such as the full ingredient list.

Definately coconut oil. I thought that it was insane when I first read it here, but the stuff is awesome.

Maybe it was Liquid Silk? I used that for dryness after my son was born and I realized that KY feeds yeasties.
