Aloe Vera GEL
It’s gentle on the skin, and if it’s the natural stuff there’s no added ingredients, it won’t break down the latex on a condom. 


It’s safe, cooling and doesn’t smell like shit.

COCONUT OIL 
It smells like a Caribbean dream and can even ward off yeast infections.


However, it will likely damage the condom so don’t say you weren’t warned.

Olive OIL
Again, probably best not to mix with a condom.


Stick to the natural stuff or you’ll end up with garlic-infused irritation and infection.

YOGHURT

Sugar and bits don’t mix.


Stick to natural yoghurt. 

MARGARINE

Margarine is totally safe to use.

Not to be confused with butter (milk products on your bits will be rank bc.. warmth)

Primer

Oil-based natural primers will do the trick.


But it’s expensive so you may as well buy actual lube.

Vaseline

Ah, Vaso. Vintage.


If you can get used to the texture, you’re good to go.

EGG WHITES

This sounds foul but go on, if you’re desperate. 


Don’t get your mouth around it though or you could get food poisoning.
