Not if you're using a condom. When you're using a condom you should only use water-based lubricants (meaning the first ingredient listed on the lube is water). This is because oil-based lubes (like baby oil) can degrade condoms and make them less effective. Plus, if the baby oil contains perfume or scents it can really do an itchy number on your vag.

That┤s correct. Only use water-based lubricants, such as KY Jelly, Astroglide, or numerous other brands available. Do not use vaseline, baby oil, or other such things as a lubricant. It will degrade the latex, meaning it will weaken and break, and also, water-based lubricant is made to be used internally, other things such as vaseline and baby oil are not. You can go to your local drug store and buy some.
