We’re talking about using coconut oil as a natural lubricant
Some readers comment that they really don’t like using artificial lubes during sex and play time with their sex toys, and they would rather use something that’s more natural.
In this post I’m going to tell you a bit about using coconut oil as a natural lubricant.
Coconut oil has many fantastic uses! At room temperature coconut oil is usually hard, so to use it spoon some out of your jar first, warm it up in your hands and it will melt nicely.
Uses for coconut oil
It’s 100% natural and has no other chemicals added to it.
It can be used for eating and cooking with, and is jam-packed full of vitamins.
It’s great for using as a moisturiser on your hair and your skin.
And it can also be used as lube down there – so long as you follow these important guidelines!
Using coconut oil with your sex toys
Coconut oil is not compatible with all sex toys, and you need to know the material your toy is made from before you mix the two together. You can usually check this out on the packaging when you buy your toy.
Coconut oil cannot be used with the following:
Latex condoms (these will degrade and could lead to a happy, or not so happy accident further down the line).
Using coconut oil with any of these materials will degrade them and basically mess them up.
You can use coconut oil with:
Your own skin. It’s excellent as a personal lubricant. But you should test a very small amount on the inside of your wrist first to check there is no reaction first.
Toys made with:
Good quality silicone toys
When you’ve finished, make sure you give your toys a good wash to remove any coconut oil and keep them lovely and clean for the next time you use them. Using coconut oil as a natural lubricant is lovely and I highly recommend experimenting with this delicious material!
