Lubricant: the best alternatives to use

There are many lube alternatives out there, but which ones are safe?

Today we will help you decide which one is best for you, your condoms and your toys, during your meetings with Escorte Suceava.

Lubricant is one of the most important elements during sex. Honestly, it’s probably the most important item. The problem is, we don’t always have it around the apartment. While not having lube hasn’t stopped many people from attempting sex, it’s always better when things slip easier. Your cabinets, whether in the kitchen or bathroom, may have alternatives that are safe and fun to use. What is safe to use as an alternative to lube? There are a few things to consider when using lube in general.

Condom use: Some lubricants (and yes, even store-bought ones) will destroy the integrity of the condom and leave you at risk of pregnancy or STDs.

Safety: Not everything that appears to work as a lubricant is a good idea. Some will hurt, some can throw off your partner’s vaginal pH, and some just won’t work. Some substances look good at the moment, but get gummy or dry out quickly, and that’s even worse than no lube.

Ease of Use: Fortunately, there are many items on the market that are safe, natural, and helpful. Some require a little extra work up front, but nothing too extreme.

CBD : CBD oil is perfectly safe to use as a lubricant for sex or masturbation. However, CBD purportedly has a variety of benefits, including topical skin-related benefits. If you’re already using CBD oil for other reasons, we probably don’t have to go out of the way to sell you to use it in the bedroom as well. If you suffer from mild erectile dysfunction due to psychological factors (such as anxiety), CBD has been theorized to help with this.One study suggests that CBD reduces anxiety, especially performance anxiety. This could be a big plus in general, but using it as a lube could help take the edge off sexually.

CONDOM AND TOY SAFETY:  Again, oils don’t mix with condoms or many sex toys. Find a water-based lube instead.

WARNINGS: CBD is at the very least safe and there are many benefits to using it regularly. CBD is not THC (not that there is anything wrong with THC). The point is, you won’t get high by putting this on your body.

Virgin coconut oil: Is there anything coconut oil can’t do? It’s great for your hair, skin, and teeth, and if you’re on the Keto diet, it will help you lose weight. You can also cook with it, assuming you don’t mind the taste. The “virgin” here refers to the fact that the oil is as unrefined as possible, so it will still taste and smell like coconuts.

Again, coconut oil is antimicrobial, widely available, and makes for a pretty awesome lubricant. You can use refined coconut oil — which doesn’t smell or taste like coconuts — but the purer the better. When products are refined, many of the good ancillary things come from that processing.

Oil = harmful to latex.

WARNINGS: Make sure you and your partner don’t have coconut allergies. While rare, it would be the worst possible thing if you start having sex and realize midway through coitus that someone is allergic to coconuts.

Cornstarch And Water: The cornstarch and water create a unique slurry that has lubricating properties. It takes a little more effort than the rest of these, but produces useful results. Mix 1 cup of water with 4 tablespoons of cornstarch Over medium heat, bring the mixture to a boil and then stir for 30 seconds Remove the mixture from the heat and allow it to cool completely. This mixture should be used the same day, so discard any you don’t use. Cornstarch lube actually feels pretty good, is natural, and doesn’t contain any of the things you don’t want near your junk, like parabens or dyes.

CONDOM AND TOY SAFETY: Cornstarch lube is safe with condoms and sex toys. While it won’t maintain the smoothness of other lubes as long, it can still give you plenty of time.

WARNINGS: The biggest concern is that you clean your toys and yourself thoroughly after using cornstarch lube. Also, don’t try to reuse a lot – just discard what’s left and create a new one immediately before your next game.

Egg whites: Okay, this is a little weird. The protein in egg white – called albumin – is very similar to cervical mucus. Because of this similarity, it can be used as a quick and weird alternative to lube. Chances are you have some eggs in your fridge right now.


Egg whites are perfectly safe to use with toys and condoms. As they are water based, there is no danger of damaging the latex or silicone. Just be sure to clean your toys thoroughly afterward.


The risk is if you come across eggs contaminated with bacteria that would produce infections. But also don’t perform oral sex on a penis or toy that has egg whites placed on it until everyone and everything has a quick clean up. While egg infection is less likely than before, it’s still a possibility. Practice safe sex/cooking.

Aloe Vera

Aloe vera is an easy plant to grow that you may have seen at your local farmer’s market. While you can break off a piece and use it, you’ve probably used it around sunburn. It can be a great alternative to lube as long as it’s pure aloe and not mixed with alcohol.


Since aloe vera is a plant, it is essentially nature’s water-based lubricant. It is safe with or without a condom and with toys. Again, make sure you are using pure aloe vera.


Nobody. Aloe also adds hydration to your skin, so enjoy!

Sweet Almond Oil

Almond oil smells amazing and is safe for the body. It stays smooth for longer which means more fun with less lube. It’s probably one of the least likely oils on this list that you’d have lying around, but if it’s you, feel free to bring it into the bedroom.


Almond oil is less harmful to latex, but it’s still oil and will still weaken it. As with other oils on this list, find something water-based if you’re using condoms or toys.


Nothing less than making sure you and your partner don’t have almond allergies.


Sure, this sounds weird, but plain yogurt with no additives or flavors is a great alternative to lube. There is also some research that suggests it may help balance the pH of the vagina and prevent thrush. The texture and lubricating properties of plain yogurt (not Greek or otherwise) work well as a lubricant. It’s cheap, easily available, and secure at a moment’s notice. Just don’t double dip.


Yogurt works well with condoms and toys, but again be sure to clean everything thoroughly afterward. Because it’s a food, it’s safe to go from penetration and back to oral as well.


The one big concern here is making sure it’s just plain yogurt with nothing added. Sugars and additives can cause yeast infections or worse.

Vitamin E Oil

Vitamin E oil is a perfect alternative to lube. It’s a healthy oil, great for your skin, and leaves no sticky residue. Because it’s great for conditioning sensitive areas, it may be one of your best choices as an alternative to lube. The only downside is that you’re probably less likely to have this on hand than a regular lube. If you have it, though, feel free to put it to use.


Oil-based lubes, including real oils, don’t work well with condoms, so choose something else if you’re using them. The toys are probably safe, but be sure to clean them thoroughly when you’re done. Some oils can break down toys if they sit on them for too long.


Make sure the oil you’re using is free from dyes and fragrances, as they can be unsightly on the genitals in some cases.

Avocado oil

Avocado oil is one of the best-quality oils you can get for skin, cooking, and apparently, even sex. It is rich in omega-3s which means it is anti-inflammatory and is widely available in most grocery stores. That said, it’s probably the most expensive lube alternative you could choose. So it might be best to stick with one of the cheaper alternatives on the list.


As with all of these oil-based products, it breaks down the latex. If you use condoms, find a water-based lube. Edible oils should not be used with most toys, other than glass or metal, as they can stick and go rancid. You definitely don’t want that.


Make sure the oil you’re using hasn’t gone rancid in the bottle. These oils should be stored in dark or opaque glass containers to minimize oxidation. Additionally, they should be used within approximately six months of opening and within 12 months of bottling. You don’t want to cook or have sex with rancid oil.

Olive oil

Like avocado oil, olive oil is extremely healthy for your skin and body in general. It’s a great lube, again full of omega-3s and widely available. It is safe for consumption, sex and omelettes (for the morning after).


Don’t use oils with latex toys or condoms.


Basically, the same as avocado oil: Make sure it isn’t rancid, and don’t use it with toys where it could get in hard-to-clean places.

So here are the best lube alternatives you could use during sex.
