Corn starch lube?

Faeya Faeya
Has anyone ever tried homemade lube? I found this online. It's made with water and corn starch. I made it and it looks/feels about like ky, but I'm curious if it'd be safe for insertion. I know, I could just Buy lube, but I don't have any, no way to get to the store, and just got new toys in the mail today...(yay for writing more reviews!)

Well...cornstarch IS safe to use in/around the vagina from what I've heard, and can actually be beneficial in some ways. So I'd imagine you could use this as a lube for sex and be safe with it. Personally I'd be a little nervous to make my own, but that's just because I am the type who if it CAN go wrong, it WILL go wrong lol.

It's actually really quick to make. That's why I'm so "excited" about the idea. Corn starch is dirt cheap after all, so it's practically free water based lube for broke folk

If you end up making it let me know how it goes! And I'll do the same! That's a really good point, and if it ends up working as well as some of the other lubes we pay so much more for, then why not?!

I read that someone did it with potato starch instead. Don't know if that'd help you at all

I don't see why it wouldn't be safe. But when it dries it will leave a starchy powder which would get everywhere. I like easy cleanup so I wouldn't try it.

If you can get your hands on food-grade cellulose powder that might be better (though perhaps not as cheap).

Ew! Sounds ick, although I've used cornstarch to exfoliate--I'm tellin' you, nothing exfoliates like cornstarch! Well, sand, but no thanks. I've cornstarched my crotch--sort of like sugar exfoliating only it works much better. I make my own corn starch body scrub and use it all over and on my feet, but just don't like the idea of it inside me... I don't know why.

I think you mean corn meal. Corn starch would not exfoliate because it's so smooth.

Well, final verdict is it seems to work ok, but doesn't last very long...It'd do in a pinch, but I guess it's time to order some new lube.
