You've run out of lube and all you can find is some flaxseed oil in the kitchen. It's natural and good for you, so using it as a lube should be okay, right?
Flaxseed Oil And Condoms
The answer to this question depends on a few factors. First, it's important to note that with flaxseed being an oil-based substance it will greatly deteriorate latex. So if you are using a latex-based condoms (which is very likely) you should avoid any oil-based natural lubricant, meaning no flaxseed oil lube.
The only condoms you should be using an oil based herb with is those marked as 'non-latex'. Make sure you read the label on the condom, as most are latex-based. There's no point of using a condom if it's going to be rendered useless by the lubricant.
Flaxseed Oil Without Condoms
Flaxseed oil is a great slippery based substance that can give you the much needed lubrication you need for sex. In addition, this oil is great for promoting health skin and hair. So you have added benefits for using it.
Are There Any Side Effects?
As with any sort of natural lubricant women react differently to the oil. Most women report great results, however some have reported slight vaginal irritation from using it. If you skin is very sensitive to foreign substances you may not want to try out this lube as it may create uncomfortable irritation in the vaginal region. Also if your partner is sensitive to foreign substances you should avoid use.
