So as you may know from my previous post, the BF and I are gathering the necessaries for our first time. He bought condoms and lube today and decided to have him try jerking off into a condom to get used to the feel of it so it won't be weird later. Sounds good, right?
I'm not in the same state as he is right now (don't go home for another few days) so he was doing the buying on his own. He knew to get water-based lube and I HAVE had him read (or at least skim) the condom pages on this site. But apparently the only available lube was the warming kind. He said KY with some kind of warming thing, which he assumed meant that it warmed on contact.
From what I can find on here, warming (or numbing) lubes are bad news. Just how bad of news? Is that going to be distracting or weird when he tries out a condom for the first time? Should I tell him to try to take it back and find some other kind? I'm going to get some of my own plain kind anyway, but since this seems to be what he's going to be trying out the condom with, I thought I'd ask.

I think it really depends on you. Some people have really sensitive skin, and get yeast infections or just get irritated/inflamed skin with the use of lubes like that. But some people don't really have any problems with it.
I'd suggest if you want to try it out, maybe try just a bit, and be ready to get rid of it and use aloe gel if your skin gets irritated, or if it doesn't become too sore, just have some plain lube on the side to take over if you don't like the warming kind. Or you could play it safe and forgo the warming kind and just use the good ol' plain stuff
