Okay, so I'm not really poor. But here in my country lubes aren't that popular (though I'm really looking forward to trying them!) and the sex-lubes are very expensive, to be honest. Considering the fact that I'm already buying pills, and my bf is buying condoms, I think we might be a little short on money to buy such an expensive little bottle.

I was wondering if there was ANY cheaper alternatives, home-made or not, for a condom-safe lube?

Have you looked into ordering cheaper ones from abroad? Also, can you save up over time and then buy a big purchase in bulk online? That will be cheaper in the end.

Generally, you only want to use things as lubes that are designed to be condoms safe. Most things that could be homemade and not made in a lab are either oil based (which is bad for condoms) or bad for you or both.

I will look up prices abroad to check if they are any cheaper, thanks for the suggestion [Smile]

And about the big purchase, I'm not so sure, I've never tried any lubes before so I'm not sure if we're even going to use them that much [Razz]

The most important thing for me is that it's condom-safe, of course [Smile] I can save up for one eventually, I was just wondering if there were any other options, thanks for such a quick response!
