    I use Ky as a lube. I dilute it about three to one with water. It works very well. Except that twice now I have a fit of the "runs". Sorry. I know it's not nice. I can suggest two possible reasons why this should happen. 1. It gets sucked up and acts as a laxative or 2. I use a small dropper to insert. I place a small quantity of the lube in a small glass and extract with the dropper. Is it possible that I have somehow infected the lube leftover and the glass has acted as a culture dish. Thus I Infect myself. It has only happened twice but it is worrying. I would be grateful for any comments on this rather unpleasant subject. I stress that as a lube, it is very good and I would like to continue with it. Tomasheen.

    There has been a continuing discussion on the Forum about lubrication types and issues. I recommend you first read the Lubrication paragraph in the Getting Started chapter of the Aneros WIKI and then read through the “Bestlube..." thread for additional information and insight into this topic.

    KY Jelly contains glycerin. Glycerin is known to have a laxative effect on many individuals. While it is possible you may have injected yourself with contaminated material, I think it is more likely you are developing a sensitivity to the glycerin component of KY Jelly. I would suggest you switch to an alternate lubrication compound which does NOT contain glycerin. After reading the above referenced threads, I'm sure you will be able to find a suitable alternative.

    Tomasheen - I had an identical problem. The Aqua Glide lubricant that Love Honey suggested didn't work for me and left me shitting and farting like mad! rumel gives good advice when he says try changing your lubricant. One thing I found is that a lot of the lubes are not readily available in the UK. At the moment I'm using Durex Play massage and lubricant. When that's finished I think I'm going to try Maximus. Both these lubes are glycerine free.

    I have used Maximus lube, it's manufactured in the UK and I can highly recommend it. It is glycerin free.

    In that case I'm definitely going to get Maximus :)

    There's also Slippery Stuff Gel, it's supposed to be the safest anal lube that was actually tested; but it's very thick.

    I tried several types of lube, but have found Maximus to be the best so far.

    This is the best place to buy Maximus lube

    Maximus Anal Lubricant 250ml - Free UK Delivery on Anal Lubes at LoveHoney

    and I use this to inject about 3ml

    Aneros Lubricant Applicator - Free UK Delivery on Medical Fetish at LoveHoney

    Hope this helps

    Thank you enigma. Very good advice. Have had problems with wind,runs and some abdominal pain. Tried KY, then Almond oil. Now I have just received Maximus and will give it a try. Not enough lube can cause soreness and I get that too. Off to try the Maximus. Bye bye for now!! Tomasheen.

    Yes! I got the Maximus and it is just great. I add a very small few drops of water, and two pump pushes is sufficient. No more runs and very little wind. Lovehoney has an excellent delivery service. Maximus is only £9.99 in the UK.
