I don't know about the accuracy of the information, but it jives with everything else I've heard. As for that lube, yes. I have tried it and didn't hesitate to do so. I don't really pay much attention to the ingredients, other than to see if there's something that my body might react with. Up to this point, I haven't personally had a problem with glycerin or parabens causing any reaction in my body anywhere, so I'll continue to buy lube that happens to have those ingredients in them. I prefer things without parabens because of all the cancer related talk, but I won't throw it out if it shows up and has that in it. Might not re-purchase, but will at least use.

I use that lube all the time, as well as others that contain glycerine and parabens. I have never had any reactions from those ingredients.

I don't have a problem at all with glycerin - it doesn't ever affect me. BUT, I won't use lube with parabens. I feel there's enough chemicals around affecting my health without me adding that to my body via lube too.

If the paraben free lubes didn't work for me, then I'd have to use ones that have it. It's better that than just spit for anal play

Has not been a problem for the wife, there have been a few times where she experienced some irritation after a fresh shave but a quick wipe with a warm wet cloth took care of that. Myself I have no problems of any kind with lubes containing those ingredients.

Oh and the chocolate flavored one, YUMMY!!!

I always avoid products with glycerin because I get yeast infections when I use products with it, but parabens not so much. The fragrances and perfumes annoy me more

I love JO flavored lube. I dont mind the glycerin. In fact, they put glycerin in just about everything. we have not had any problems from using lubes with glycerin.

No problems with glycerin here, but the parabens can get touchy.

It mainly depends on your personal reactions.

I don't get any reactions from parabens or glycerin, so I don't pay too much attention to ingredients.

Thankfully I'm not prone to reactions or infections, so I don't mind lubes with glycerin or parabens. If I see that a lube doesn't have them, then great, but it's not something I go out of my way to avoid.

As for the JO flavored lube, I just ordered some earlier today. I hear it's supposed to taste really good, so here's hoping it's true!

All of the lubes that I have used until have had parabens because I never bothered to check the ingredients before. I always thought that lube was lube. Ha. I would not hesitate to use that product.

I don't even use products with parabens on my skin, let alone EAT them. Someone needs to come out with an all-natural flavored lube, seriously.

This +1. I try to stay away from products with parabens (not so much glycerin) in it no matter what the use is for (although I don't always avoid them and do use some lotions with parabens). I've heard about it in skin and hair care products but never fathomed that it would be in lube, too. That's definitely something to look out for, especially for edible lubes. However, I don't think I'll be too quick to ditch the non-edible ones I already have.

i've never had any problems with them, so they don't bother me. i've read a lot of things saying they're bad for you, but the science tends to say otherwise.

I don't seem to react to glycerin but parabens are absolutely a no no. I try to stay away from glycerins too just to be safe, but I have a lube that has it in it and I like it.
