Comical? Well, it didn't seem that way last night, but....

My husband was giving me a sensual rub-down and went to slick some of my favorite water-based lube on my nether regions but accidentally use the warming massage oil (that had alcohol and other ingredients you don't want down there! Mmmmm... talk about a hot coochie! It felt like I was being eaten by acid.

The worst lube I used was purchased at a sex toy party. It was a warming lube that resulted in me having fire crotch. It was HOT and very uncomfortable. I then ended up with my first and only yeast infection that was pure hell. This experience resulted in me not using lube again. Thanks to the benefits of reviewing (Thanks EF!) I learned about glycerin and parabens, which this lube contained both. I now use lube again, but cautious of the ingredients. I can't believe I went without using lube for so long!

Probably KY. For a long time I scoffed at the more expensive lubes, and figured Why should I buy those when KY is cheaper, they are all the same aren't they?

Yup. We have a lot to thank EF and reviewing for!

Don't think I have any horror stories around it, but it's sticky and just not nice...

ID juicy lube. I used it a lot while I was young and didn't know of better products, and it was just a constantly sweaty, overly sweet smelling MESS everytime.

It was either Joy Jelly or something called "Motion Lotion." I bought it because I was dry from being on the pill. I was a teenager and knew nothing about sex toys and lubes, and knew I didn't want to use KY (there was a tube in my parent's dresser drawer and I would find it on top. EW!) I bought it at Spencers.

So, I bought this glycerin and flavor laden stuff and ended up with horrible UTIs and yeast infections. I most likely would have gotten the UTIs and yeast infections anyway, but the lube made it worse.

I eventually needed surgery to stretch my urethra, cut it open, remove polyps, remove my Bartholin's Glands and for many years after that, I didn't get any UTIs.

The doctor told me not to use the lube, but he didn't say why. He said I was "too young for sex." Telling me that glycerin would trigger infections would have helped a LOT!

It didn't stop me from having sex, I just went years without lube. Until I had my kids. MUCH later I found out that glycerin causes yeast infections and UTIs in me only a few years ago, from a flyer from Babeland. (I hadn't found Eden yet.) I wish I had known sooner.

For me, KY...in my initial lube use, I thought KY was the standard! I used it with my first toy and for anal.

Why all the KY bashing? It's not great but I'd rather use it than saliva.

Wet Synergy Cool Tingle. That stuff hurt like hell! I don't know if it was that the cooling sensation was too strong, or I was having a glycerin reaction (rare for me), or what, but it stung! And the packet said that it rinsed off easily with water - LIES!!! I had to scrub off the stuff on my clit with a washcloth and do my best to get rid of the stuff inside me, and I still wound up just waiting for it to wear off in both cases because it wouldn't come off all the way! I don't even know how it performed as a lube, since it hurt too much to try with my toys.

All I can say is: thank goodness it was part of a sampler pack that I got for free. I'd have been annoyed if I'd paid for it.
