Oil-based lubes... Do not enter?

Men's pleasure cream review
Related to: 
I've recently seen some pretty cool looking all-natural lubes on here
this men's pleasure creme by Sensuous Beauty , for instance. i've read warnings about oil and the vagina not mixing, something about oil harboring bacteria and potentially causing such unpleasantries as yeast infections, bacterial vaginosis and UTI's.

can someone elaborate on this?

anyone had experience with oil based lubes actually contributing to infections?

all input is surely appreciated.

thanks!

We use 'oil-based' lubes 98% of the time - the other 98% are silicone. For us Oil-based products are made with some combination of Cocoa butter, Shea butter, Almond oil & Vitamin E oil. No petroleum products. If you're interested check them out at Yes products link.

When were done having sex - our skin feels like we have just moisturized all over. We've never had yeast or UTI problems.

Everyone else here at EF will tell you to use water-based. Nothing wrong with that - just that my wife hates it - and you know the drill. What the wife wants, the wife gets.

i had found Yes too when searching for organic lubes and was just about to purchase when i decided to search reviews on them, and i dont remember specifics (sorry) but i did read that some ingredient in the lube is banned in the US as well as one of the main ingredients not being organic. however, i cant find a list of ingredients on their site...

however, they look pretty cool. they're based in england, however, and i opt for the more local 'firefly' lube by applied organics, which i'm trying to get EF to stock.. found at

organiclubricants.com


i unfortunately have issues with yeast and UTI complications so i have to be very careful about what goes up there... no parabens, no glycerin... etc. never tried oils though and just wanted to see what the fuss was about.


thanks for your input!

We have used Sensuous numerous times for massages that always lead to sex. We use it "All" over (her and I) and the wife has never had a reaction of any kind to it. (I should mention that the wife has never had a UTI and only had one yeast infection in the 22 years we have been together.)

I have heard good things about Cocoa butter being great for sex too.

Is that 98% oil and 2% silicone, the other way around or do you mix them?

Here are the ingredients & link link

Oil-based:

Prunus dulcis (Sweet almond) oil*, Butyrospermum parkii (Shea butter)*, Helianthus annuus (Sunflower) seed oil*, Theobroma cacao (Cocoa) seed butter*, Cera alba (Bees wax)*, Natural Tocopherols (Vitamin E).

*Organically grown ingredients

I can't imagine that any of these ingredients are banned in the US.
