I wrote about using Coconut Oil as lube not too long ago and since then all my friends have been trying that out. All except one. I spent last night sitting on the floor of a sex shop smelling flavored lube with a her because she wanted a lube that tastes good, but hates anything coconut. (Who hates coconut, am I right?!) The only thing is you can’t use flavoured use for penetration because the sugar can irritate you.
Luckily, in the comments of that post, a fellow blogger Elle suggested using Almond Oil as lube as well, so I thought I would look up and post some information about that too for those rare people who aren’t fond of coconut.
I was surprised to find not that much written about Almond Oil as an alternative lube, but what I did find said nothing bad about it. Of course, there’s the same precautions to consider when it comes to Almond oil as when it comes to Coconut oil: Since it’s also an oil, you can’t safely use it with latex condoms.
Almond Oil is also anti-bacterial, except Coconut Oil is more likely to prevent yeast infections. Another upside is that is also tastes really great and is all natural. The only downside I have to say about Almond oil is that it’s a bit stickier than others so it’s tougher to wash off but that doesn’t sound like that much of a big deal.
Also, when it comes to both oils, Almond and Coconut, I suggest heating them up a little bit before you start with them. The texture and the temperature of the oil is a lot more pleasurable when warm because they’re pretty clumpy oils at room temperature. (in comparison to Olive oil and other types)
So if you’re not a coconut fan, you’re still in luck when it comes to alternative lube! Enjoy, my friends!
