According to the manufacturer, you can use KY warming lubricant for sex. However, the KY Brand TOUCH MASSAGE Body Massage Oils are NOT designed for use as a personal lubricant and are not compatable with condoms...thus they definatley should not be used for sex. So your friend should carefully read the label of whatever product he/she is considering using.

I would personally probably NOT recommend using any warming product for intercourse or other penetrative activity. I've heard/read MANY reports of various warming products (including KY warming) causing burning, irritation, and other discomfort when used on the genitals.

Once again. They use Acacia Honey for that warming sensation. HONEY.

I've recently read that other brands use cinnamon.

Please, don't use any warming oils or lubes on your vagina. please.

My ex and I tried the warming gel once, but it was double-whammy bad:

1) It wasn't very lube-like. The consistency was too thin, for me, and it didn't do too great a job at lubricating much of anything.

2) The warming agent was reallly irritating. The vagina and surrounding areas are very sensitive, so I'd definitely say to skip it and use standard KY or Astroglide for intercourse and keep the warming lube for other stuff.

I had a similar experience as Verbum. As a lube, it wasn't very effective - it is too thin and evaporates easily.

The warming effect was only noticeable to me on my hands, but my partner reported discomfort with the way it heats up (likened it to a persistent, light burning/tingling sensation).

Also, it doesn't taste as neutral as other lubes like Astroglide...should you get any in your mouth.

disconnect and let me drift/until my upside down is right side *in*
