slippery stuff vs natural lube

    I have been using Rumel's homemade lube for quite a while. I have read positive things about slippery stuff and am considering giving that a try.
    I'm happy with the natural lube but here is my downside
    my batches are solid at room temps and need to be warmed up for use in an injector
    being mostly oil, staining is sometimes an issue

    anyone tried them both? does the slippery stuff stain as well

    Slippery Stuff does not stain, as far as I know, it was designed as a rectal probe lube. I have not tried the homemade lube, but have used Slippery Stuff Gel exclusively recently, and am very happy with it; it's very thick, very slippery (in the anus) and lasts a long time in the rectum. There was even a study done on the safety of lubes in the anus, and Slippery Stuff was the safest, hands down. Read here:

    AEGiS-CATIE News: Intriguing findings from study on lubricants - March 29, 2007

    there was an earlier post on natural lubes, which can be found here:

    And there was a thread on what lubes are safer:

    And the thread that started it all:

    As said in an earlier post, natural does not necessarily mean safer.

    Thhn,

    You might also consider the Flax seed lubricant formula. It is all natural, it doesn't stain, it's cheap as all get out and it cleans up with water. Who knows it might even be healthy for you, after all, Flax seed contains Omega-3's !

    Slippery Stuff (blue label) is my road warrior lube. Here's their assortment of lubes: Index.

    The Shea mixture was stiff this morning so I broke into the Dopp kit and used Slippery Stuff gel. Got a good three hours out of just 2ml. Gud stuff. Gives a nice session and no irritation that I could detect. I'm a believer butt do like alv's Shea+coconut mix.

    thanks for that link BF Mayfield. I do remember reading the beginning of that thread a while back and kind of forgot about it. I think I may give that a try before I purchase any slippery stuff

    anyone who has made the lube out of flaxseed... did you use whole or ground seed?

    thhn,

    Definitely use WHOLE seed. If you were to use ground seed you would not be able to filter it to remove the fine particulates and thus the resulting lube would have some 'grittiness' to it. 'Grittiness' is surely something you would want to avoid in lubricating such a sensitive area as your rectum and anus.


    After trying this a few times, I have returned to using just 'Natural Jelly' because of the 'drying out' factor. While the flax seed lube is wonderful internally, it just dries out too quickly around the anal opening to suit me, requiring repeated application of lube, which I find undesirable during an Anerosession.


    Note: I would not recommend you try to make large batches of this product as its shelf life at room temperature is only a few days. After that period of time it begins to breakdown into a very watery liquid and looses its cohesive slipperiness. This should not be a problem as it is so easy to make. Boil water, add seeds, simmer 5-7 minutes, strain, allow to cool, use.

    thnn,

    Just regular ol' whole golden Flaxseed (I bought the organic). You can buy it at any health food store. $3 buys you a 14 ounce bag, which makes a lot of the stuff!

  • thhn,
    I saw your question about slippery stuff vs natural lube. Does it stain? I have never had it stain anything that I have used it for, or on anything that is fabric of any sort. It washes easily out of sheets and most fabrics, although I wouldn't try it on silk. Even water can ruin that. I know from experience that it comes out easily. It is only one of the two lubes that I would use for anal play, the other being Maximus. You can buy maximus and slippery stuff(bluelabel only) both in 250 cc (8 oz.)bottles. Both are glycerin free and water based. Either one is great for anal use. Good luck and enjoy! Just an fyi, red label is silicone based and is not as thick-more liquid felling.

    Midnitebelle51,

    Just curious, is this your personal preference or your partner's preference or both?

    You can also get the Slippery Stuff Gel in a 16 oz pumper, too.
