Default Coconut Oil as a Lube

I know this is somewhat off topic from Poly. But, not completely.

I am having all sorts of medical issues that cause problems with my sex life.

I can't find anything resolute regarding coconut oil. But, I know it helps with yeast (internal and external) which would be great.

Doctor suggested eating 2-3 tablespoons a day.

But, i was wondering if anyone has used it as a lube? (i am aware of the limitation of which condoms can be used with oil)

Many of the lubes available are just.... not user friendly for my body.

Coconut oil is supposed to be an awesome lube. I've never tried, but if I start using lube on a regular basis I'm sure I will.

It's edible, so that's nice. Apparently it depends on the quality how good it tastes, though.
It's natural, so your body should be a bit more willing to work with it than anything synthetic.
Some people really like the scent, so if you like the smell of coconut, that should be pleasing, too!

I had a friend at one point who swore by coconut oil.

I would never have thought of using this! That is awesome, I have so many allergies to the crap in many lubes, haha! Thanks for sharing, I will try this

It does taste and smell different based on quality. That became obvious when I added it to my diet.

D-you're hilarious! Maybe I should just get the song ready and play it! LOL!

A friend just recommended it as a lubricant last month, though I haven't tried it for intercourse, it seemed to be quite lasting for massage I'd done quite a bit of online research and it's highly thought of thought it was great its got anti-fungal properties.

As it's not recommended to use with latex condoms (although there's debate on the effect coconut oil in particular has on latex). I'm glad they are coming up with more non latex condoms.

Please warn all prospective mates. Many people are deathly allergic to even trace amounts of coconut. Coconut scented oil or lotion makes me nauseous but fortunately I am not allergic and I do enjoy the taste.

In my case, neither of my partners have issues with it-we've used it for massage and we use it for cooking frequently.
But-that is true, some people do and it's important for anyone dealing with potential new lovers to keep that in the forefront of your mind.
