Good water or silicone based alternative to coconut oil

Good water or silicone based alternative to coconut oil

Brian Brian
Ok, so my wife and I love coconut oil but unfortunately it's not compatible with condoms. Right now my wife's on birth control so that's not an issue but we may go off of it in the near future and I'd like to find some possible lube replacements. In some ways we've been kind of spoiled with coconut oil considering how cheap it is. We tried astroglide and KY jelly before hand and both of those burned my wife and didn't last very long. Any suggestions on what may work better?

I really like Better Sex Essentials silicone lube. I also like Fun Factory lubes, both the silicone body fluid and the water based toy fluid - though this does contain glycerin, I haven't had any issues with it.

Thanks Carrie. Like I said I'm kind of spoiled with coconut oil being so cheap. That better sex lube may be what I go with when we switch over to condoms. Thanks.

Welcome.

Just as a side note, I got my BSE silicone lube in late 2008. I got a large bottle of ID Velvet in early 2009, some Fun Factory Body fluid in May of 2009.

We use silicone lube at least 5 times a week, plus I use it in my hair a few times a month.

I still have 1/4 the bottle of BSE, 3/4 the bottle of ID and half the body fluid.

You seriously only need a very small amount to get a large amount of slickness. It seems expensive but it lasts a long, long time.

Good to know. The oil lasts for a little bit but it sounds like the silicone stuff last longer. Thanks again.

Maximus is glycerin free but has parabens. We really enjoy it because it is thick and goes where you put it until it is rinsed off. Ride H2O is nice and thick as well and is glycerin and paraben free. I have heard good things about Ride Silicone, as well, but have no personal experience.

Silicone can be hard to clean off, especially if it gets on clothes. Other than that it's great.

Sounds like you should stay away from parabens. Most of the water-based lubes wind up being a little slicker than coconut oil, but you might want to try out several versions. I've heard good things about the carageenan-based "natural" lubes, and Probe seems to be well tolerated by people with chemical sensitivity. You want a light lube (to mimic the feel of coconut oil better).

Another possibility would be the plastic condoms. More expensive, but can be used with coconut oil

Wow lots of good info. Yeah we've gotten pretty used to things being messy with the Coconut Oil. I think we may look into silicone lubes since they last so long and then maybe find a water based lube we like for the times when we don't want it to be as messy. Thanks for all the info.

In your hair? I'm curious... what does it do?

I'll second Maximus - it's my favorite water based. As far as silicone goes, I use Pink - I adore the consistency and it feels really good on my skin.

It works just like any shine serum you buy at the drug store or salon only it's not filled with fillers and added ingredients like alcohol. Just a tiny drop, rubbed together in the palms, then smoothed thru the hair, makes it shiny and soft, reduces the look of frizz or split ends and, for me, keeps it from tangling too bad on the motorcycle.

Sadly, if someone is sensitive to K-Y they'll probably be sensitive to Maximus in its current incarnation.

I've e-mailed them, and they say they're working on a paraben-free version, but it's not out yet.

I'm definitely trying this...I use bio-silk but it's a little sticky sometimes.

*sigh* true...didn't think of that. I was thinking along lines of quality and in comparison to KY and astroglide.

We absolutely love a European product called 'Yes' they have very good water and oil (actually vegetable butters like Shea & Cocoa) products. We love the butter (oil) formulation - it leaves you skin feeling moisturized and hydrated. check out link
