    Oil and water based lubes are fine - no silicone. Check your Astro Glide for silicone.

    Have fun!

    Silicones will have chemical names ending -siloxane.

    Safe for you Syn, but not necessarily your butt; astro glide and KY jelly are both chocked full of glycerin, which can cause urgent spontaneous bowel movements in most people.  I suggest you try some beforehand to make sure it won't cause a problem.


    One of the best anal-safe lubes is Slippery Stuff Gel; there are many here who like natural oils like coconut oil, palm oil, olive oil.  Vaseline works well.  I'm not sure how silicone and oils react; I thought they were compatible; it's just silicone lubes that react with silicone, but it's best to read your instructions first.


    Congrats on your choice, and good luck.

    For info: Astroglide-X is a silicone. "intrigue" is the K-Y silicone lube.
