My bf and I have generally not used lube unless the sex has lasted for a very long session. I would be interested in using it more but we like to switch from vaginal to oral sex within a session. I know that the sugar in the lube isn't good for the vagina, but are there any lubes out there that arn't flavored with sugar (or other things that arn't woman friendly) that don't taste as bad?
Also, the lube thoughts are mostly from reading around the message boards that lube on the inside of the condom is nice. My bf is uncircumsized, so his penis already moves within the condom with his own lube. Does anyone else have experience with condom use with an uncircumsized male and lube use? Does it make a difference?

Just about every kind of lubricant out there is not flavored with sugar, and those that are not aren't especially tasty, but also are not very good to ingest.
I'm not clear as to why you are concerned about ingesting lubricant, however. If you are using a condom with vaginal sex, you can use a good water-based lubricant like Astroglide, Wet, etc. With oral sex, (on him, I presume?) there is really not much need for lubricant. What you can do there is have him switch the condom to either an unlubricated condom or a flavored condom for the oral sex, and then back to a regular one with water-based lubricant if you choose to have vaginal sex again.
As for your second question, a good deal of uncircumsized guys do not use lubricant on the inside of the condom because they already do produce their own lube, as you said. (And that likely varies from male to male, as well.) It will also not hurt anything to add some additional lubricant within the condom. He may find it to be more comfortable, or he may like it better the other way-- that's just a matter of personal preference.
