  • Can you use a oil base lube on the helix syn?

    yes, as long as it isn't a silicone oil.

    Canola, Grapeseed, Olive, Coconut, Cottonseed, Almond and Walnut are all winners.  Castor Oil has a nice viscosity and I've not had an "adverse" reaction to it like I would if I swallowed it.

    Sesame and other highly aromatic oils are perhaps too "distracting"

    If you are allergic to Peanuts you might avoid Peanut Oil for fear of getting, "dead."

    Consider using Crisco as an anal sphincter lube or on the toy to modify how much "slip" you get from the oil.

    Have fun !!

    Me too, it was sort of unexpected
  • Heh, I never used shea butter for fear of the same reason as I have had severe nut allergies since I was young.  Over the years I have learned that it is limited to tree nuts and even then limited to a just a few in the category (for instance I am ok with hazelnut and pine nut and pretty bad with walnuts and pecans mostly).  I was at a fair though and in this African section I saw a bunch of the all natural shea butter for a good price and decided to get some.  I rubbed it on my skin, scratched and rubbed it in, then administered a small taste test.  Having no reactions to all those self tests decided to give it a go with the aneros (after yet another test of a tiny smear in the area).  Sure am glad I discovered my immunity to shea, it is a great lubricant and moisturizer!
