I was just curious if there is anything out there that can be used as a natural lubricant ?( such as aloe Vera gel, coconut oil, etc?) thank you

Coconut oil is great as a lubricant. But keep in mind that it can't be used with condoms, as the oil is very likely to degrade the materials the condoms are made from.

Apart from that, it's a very good choice. It's mildy anti-bacterial and anti-fungal, and feels very nice.

There are a few commercial brands of lubricant that are water-based (so, latex-safe) and use gentle ingredients.

Do you think one of these would meet your needs?

How so? if they've caused irritation, have you been able to figure out any common element in the products you've tried that might be the cause of the problem?
