Olive Oil: Not Just for Cooking

We've recently started using olive oil in the bedroom with great results. The pros are it is safe to eat, safe for all forms of sexual play, easy to access and inexpensive, and it's great for massages. The cons are it can stain your sheets, or other fabrics, and it does not work with condoms. Some people may also have an allergic reaction, but this is very uncommon. We really love the versatility of it and it's become our go-to lube for massages and sexual play to include play with toys. We have options this way. A massage can turn into a lubed surface for rubbing body parts on. The same lube for fingering or a hand job can be used for oral. There are many possibilities.

Cool! Betty Dodson recommends almond oil. If it's safe to eat, you can use it on your body.

Wait I thought oil is not good for internal use? I could've been getting olive oil all this time?

You should read through this thread: Oh Olive Oyl! P'Gell raised some important points about why you may not want to get your lube from the cooking aisle.

I wouldn't want to use it as a sexual lubricant, but it's great for hair and skin

We use and oil that is a combination of Cocoa & Shea butters with almond and vitamin E oil. We'll stick to cooking with olive oil - but thanks for letting us know about the possibilities.

Unless you're one of the rare people who have a reaction, it's totally safe. My doctor is the one who recommended it to me as a personal lubricant. Maybe do a small "patch test" first to see how you do. I've been using it for a few months though with nothing but great success!

Thanks for the heads up. I haven't had trouble with BV yet, but I'll ask my doctor about it next time I go. My doctor is the one who recommended olive oil to me as a personal lubricant. I liked your list of things to keep in mind too. Like anything else, what works for one person may not for another.

I'd like to experiment with flavored olive oil. Sometimes plain gets too rich.

No thanks. I'll stick to using it in my hair and cooking.

Thank you.

Here's what I said, and I stand by that today.

I personally wouldn't use olive oil as a sexual lube.
The vagina doesn't necessarily "shed" oil the way it does water or silicone based lube. Oil can coat the vagina and cause both bacterial and fungal growth. As a nurse, I wouldn't suggest using any kind of oil in the vagina.

It's OK as a massage oil, but I prefer nut oils with herbs, like Hathor Exotic Love Oil, as they are less likely to smell funny and don't remind me of dinner.

There are plenty of tested, safe and affordable lubes in the lube section of Eden. I'd suggest one of those.

My personal favorites are Sliquid H2O "Dude Lube" Ride, or Sliquid Organic.

I did have to say, just because you "can eat it" doesn't mean it is safe to use in the vagina. You can eat sugar, and chocolate and flour and eggs and fried chicken and habanero peppers and wasabi, I wouldn't put any of those anywhere NEAR my vagina.

The vagina needs to be kept clean and needs to be able to "shed" anything you put in it. Commercial lubricants, that do NOT contain sugar or sweeteners or pthalates or pore clogging, skin suffocating and bacteria growing oils like things from your grocery store can be. Most commercial lubes are made with things that are tested to be safe for the vagina. (As long as you stay away from sugary, sweetened or oil based lubricants. Even most oil based lubricants say on the label they are for male masturbation, only.) Good quality commercial lubes will be shed by your vagina and will not leave it susceptible to infection or clogged pores. You can't say that about "anything you can eat."

It's interesting that you are using it that way, but I may just keep using what I've been using.

I want to try this because my girlfriend loves olive oil.

I wouldn't personally use olive oil as a lube because I find it a little too rich. I know I have issues with just olive oil on my skin. I prefer coconut oil as a lube with my glass toys and anal play.

I'm with P'Gell, Olive Oil, or any other oil for that matter, is NOT safe for internal play!

I don't know about oilive oil, but coconut oil is a great alternative. Doesn't even mess the sheets!
