In the heat of the moment, no one wants to stop in the middle of the action and run out looking for a place to buy lube. Aside killing the moment, imagine the unnecessary judgment these pharmacists would give you, considering they are angels guarding the gates of Heaven. For your sanity and a good time, here are 4 items in the home you can use as lube.
1. Aloe Vera.
Aloe vera gel has a soothing effect on your skin, which helps to fight against any skin irritation during sex. Pure aloe vera may be a good lube option for people with sensitive skin or genitals, but it’s important to read ingredients carefully. When buying bottled aloe vera, look out for the alcohol content because can irritate and dry out your skin. You can try the plant itself, however, it can be difficult to extract the gel from it. Therefore it’s easier to get the products from pharmacies and supermarkets. Aloe vera is safe to use with condoms because it doesn’t contain oil.
2. Plain Yogurt.
The key word here is Plain yogurt and not regular yogurt like fanyogo etc. Plain yogurt is full of protein, calcium, vitamin D, and probiotics, which help grow good bacteria. It also has therapeutic properties for treating vaginal thrush. Antibacterial drugs make you lose both the good and bad bacteria in the vagina and body. But you don’t have to worry about that when you use plain yogurt. It helps you recover all the good bacteria you’ve lost, and maybe gain some more. As long as the yogurt doesn’t contain sugar, which can cause a yeast infection.
3. Vitamin E.
Vitamin E is often used as a moisturiser and/or a carrier oil to dilute essential oils like tea tree, because it is gentle on the skin. The downside is, Vitamin E does not work well with condoms. If you want a lube that contains vitamin E but won’t break down latex, a silicone blend may work better for you.
4. Egg White.
Pretty sure your first reaction was “Ew”. However, eggs as Ghanaians know, contain so many nutrients that are good for the body. Eggs contain a lot of nutrients like Vitamin A, B5, B6, B12, D, E, and K. Eggs whites are great for toning the skin and it also curbs with wrinkles. If you want to keep the vagina healthy, eggs are one of the ingredients you can use. Eggs whites are a great alternative to personal lubricants because of their slippery nature. When you apply it to the vagina, the penis slides in easily. Some people may have reservations because of the way it smells, which is totally understandable.
