quick question though…what’s she allergic too? That might help you narrow down your choices. For instance, if it’s glycerine that’s not a good match, try a glycerine-free brand like Hydra-Smooth. Most sex shops (good ones, not nasty dirty freaky kinds) have sample sizes for you to buy/try so you can figure out what works best. Good luck.

If I were she, I wouldn’t mess around w. trial and error for that particular part of her body; have her check w. her gynecologist before the interior vaginal membranes get REALLY irritated…not a good thing and hideously uncomfortable. Sex shops are fun but maybe not a replacement for a medical look/see.

mineral oil

NEVER NEVER use any petroleum-based product as a sexual lubricant for traditional intercourse. Mineral oil is less grim than vasoline but is still NOT advised. Jettyrock’s gf already has allergic reactions to K-Y. which means that the skin is very irritated and tender. The last thing she wants to do is irritate that area further.

if you’re in the bay area (or boston, or otherwise maybe online), check out good vibrations – they have a variety of products to sample, and staff members that are knowledgeable about ingredients, allergies, differences….. and seeing an OBGYN is a good idea!

astroglide, available at most stores that sell health and beauty aids (for example wal mart) for about $8.

Try Liquid Silk. It’s water-based.
