Someone told me that you could use petroleum jelly as lubricant. I'm not quite sure because I thought it was bad for you. I'm just curios about it is all.

Not a good idea.

Not only would it erode a condom, but in terms of the female genitals, because it's not water-soluble, it could help harbor bacteria, creating an infection.

For male masturbation, externally, it wouldn't be harmful.
