Two words: BIRTH CONTROL.
My wife and I finally did some research on hormonal birth control and got her off the pills 4 months ago. Bottomline: we're now wondering the same thing regarding lubricants.
Our sex life has literally gone from "ouch, I just can't get too wet any more, sorry" to "OMG, I literally soaked my panties at work today and had to change them at lunch I was so horny, what's going on with me?"
All hormonal birth control causes a massive increase in a protein SHBG (Sex hormone-binding globulin) that binds to testosterone and doesn't allow it freely in the bloodstream, tricking your body into thinking it's pregnant.
After 5-6 months of cumulative SHBG build up, the woman will have increasingly less free testosterone in her blood which has a slow yet very measurable effect on sexual function as testosterone in women controls libido and lubrication.
