I know this question will be extremely hard to answer depending on your location but, does plain water-based lubrication taste bad? I ask because, me and my girlfriend might be having sex in the near future, and before I buy any, I was thinking, if possible, to buy one that can be used for vaginal intercourse (eg flavoured) that will also not taste bad if oral is involved (offtopic: Does cunningulus or however it's spelt, mean oral??)

But will normal plain water-based stuff taste bad? Or should I just go and buy a flavoured one anyways (if they sell it? I don't know).

First of all, you dont want to be using flavoured lube for vaginal inercourse, it can cause things such as yeast infections and other infections that arent comfterbal.

Secondly yeah cunninglus does mean oral sex.

As for the taste i don't know but im sure they taste complealy different.

cunnilingus does mean oral sex for a girl. fellatio is the term where a guy is receiving oral sex. I can't be entirely sure about the lube. I know that lots of condom types are pre-lubed, and it doesn't taste bad to me when I give fellatio to my boyfriend, but it does make my stomach upset. That is probably more related to my sensitive stomach than the flavor or the fact that it's lube. Like I said, it doesn't taste bad per se, but it's not like anything actually tasty. It doesn't actually have that much of a taste (though it's better than the taste of doctor gloves XD). I imagine either one might be good if you don't really care if it has a flavor and you don't have a sensitive stomach. Otherwise I'd say find a variety pack of flavors, they usually come in small bottles, kinda like variety lotion or chapstick packs. Different flavors and such. I'd also recommend looking at the ingredients, just to make sure there isn't anything in it that might make you feel sick or that you're allergic to. A bit of across the world anxiety for your health lol and, the message across the whole site, safe sex practices please. hope this helped you any.

and mods, hope I didn't give him any incorrect info. anyone feel free to add to what I've said.
