Any coconut oil that is certified organic by and independent (read non-government) certification group is a safe choice. This is a great site to help choose: link

we've used coconut oil for cooking for a while. we just recently tried it as lube and LOVE it. we have a cheap off brand and nutiva. they both end up being great lube once they melt. the nutiva is much more smooth, spreads evenly and is easier to work with in general. coconut oil is solid up to about 75F. we don't heat it up first to make it a liquid but just let it melt on our skin.

FABULOUS link, thanks so much! Even though I know that info, I really like the way it was covered so well and is easily understandable by most people. I'm going to use that link to refer anyone who asks me about coconut oils!

I use Wilderness Family Naturals brand virgin centrifuge extracted coconut oil And the best thing about all the different types they carry as far as sex lubes go is that they sell small glass jars as sample sizes! Each sample size jar is $3 and you can try all three types they have (all are certified organic): expeller pressed RBD; virgin cold pressed; virgin centrifuge extracted (my favorite for eating, cooking, everything!)

That is such an awesome link!

I used this one but sadly it's not listed. It meets all of the criteria they say is important, though!

Ah what great ideas! We use coconut oil to cook with. It never occurred to me to use it as a lube. Now I must try it

We've only bought coconut oil at Sam's Club or Costco. Amazingly we've been approached by other shoppers and asked what we use it for. Our story has always been that it's for cooking as that is what it is labeled for. My wife is far too demure to say or be comfortable with me sharing what our real use is.

Eeep, I've been using the LouAnn and Spectrum brands for the lotions that I make, but it looks like Spectrum is one of the baddies listed on that page

I've been making lotions with coconut oil for about a year now and have known that it can be used a a lube, I just wonder how he reacts with latex? Does anyone know?

I found the info on this page to be helpful. However, as the page says, to be safest, use a polyurethane condom when using coconut oil. I won't hold my breath for any studies to be done showing it doesn't harm latex condoms because coconut oil is not something that can be patented, so it would be shelling out money they can't recoup. Maybe a coconut oil company would do this? Now that would be hilarious and I would applaud any that touted theirs for lube and food! In fact, there's a good brand name right there Lube & Food, ha, sounds like a combo car service/fast food place!

You're welcome! I love the fact that they are in glass with metal lids (HATE plastic, think it's a nightmare and avoid it at all costs, especially for anything holding consumables or topicals) and since a little goes a long way, the sample oil sizes actually last a long time when used as lube.

I recommend popping popcorn with coconut oil (that's what movie theaters used as their "secret" ingredient before special interest groups waged a war against coconut oil, demonizing it. Reminds me of the same with eggs, lard and butter, to name a few. And just as with those, the replacements turned out to be the danger, but of course!). The company sells almost everything in sample sizes which is great. I recommend the popcorn popping oil they have which is a mix of palm and coconut oils and is really delicious! What I like about Wilderness Family Naturals is they educate you, they are honest, good people and they always bring in any better product if they can find it.

The centrifuged coconut oil I recommended to you is special in that fresh coconut meat is used in a cold process whereas most oil is extracted from dried coconut meat (and it can still be organic). You will notice that organic, virgin, cold-pressed, coconut oil has a smell of coconuts, but food will mask it easily if you don't like it. I bought their saute oil, a mix of mainly olive oil with coconut oil and sesame oil and it's really nice.

If you want to go back after getting the samples and buy larger sizes of anything, may I recommend thinking about their Thanksgiving/Black Friday sales? You will get discounts and free stuff, so it's a good time to stock up. However, things might be, or get, out of stock quickly. They offer sales throughout the year, so if you see a good deal, grab it then instead of gambling on something being out of stock when the holiday sales roll 'round.

Anyway, let me know how you like whatever you get! I have to say, to me, coconut oil is similar to silicone lube in that it has a similar thinness to it and it spreads like silicone does, at least for me. It's not the same feel or function as silicone, but I wanted to let you know it's definitely thin like most oils and therefore, it might not be as good for anal, but I have no experience with it for that, so I am just guessing. Good luck.

A good virgin, cold pressed, organic olive oil or virgin, cold pressed, organic avocado oil are also good as sex lubricants. For avocado oil, I recommend: Life-Flo Oil, Pure Avocado and/or Hobe Naturals Avocado Oil.

OMG, I wrote so much, sorry about that!!

Don't be sorry you just educated us

I have used coconut oil as skin and hair moisturizer, but sadly have never gotten the chance to give it a go as a lube. I am adding that to my list of things to try

Now can avocado oil be used for other things such as a hair moisturizer and if so how does it stack up when compared to coconut?

Thanks for saying that, it makes me feel a little better!

"Olive, wheat germ, safflower, sesame, almond, apricot kernel, and avocado oils are closer in composition to the natural secretions of the skin. Most of them are also rich in linoleic acid, an essential fatty acid that aids in skin-cell renewal." Shit, I forgot where I grabbed that quote, sorry! I dozed off and started again and by then I forgot. Anyway, avocado oil is less greasy feeling in some people's estimation when used on the skin and hair than coconut oil. But, coconut oil penetrates the hair shaft more than other oils which makes it a good deep conditioner for hair and can you can always combine different oils together, too.

Just remember, that coconut oil is still oil from the standpoint of compatibility. Some toys and protection are not oil compatible. Latex in particular comes to mind.
