Hello Everyone, I was just reading a magazine article on using coconut oil as a personal/intimate lubricant.

Well it isn't latex friendly, so you couldn't use it with condoms. I'd also be a little worried about the possibility of yeast infections if using it vaginally.

I've heard of people using olive oil, although I haven't tried it.

Steve mentioned yeast infections. I don't know what all is in coconut oil, but anything with any sort of sweetener in it could possibly lead to a yeast infection, especially if you're prone to them.

Supposingly it's a natural antifungal and it does not cause yeast.

Sounds intriguing, then, as log as condoms aren't an issue. The non-latex-friendliness would pretty much rule it out for DW and me.

If condoms aren't an issue for you and it doesn't cause irritation, then I think the only way to know is to give it a try and see how it works for you.
