Pantry Ingredients to Create Lubricants for Boot-Knocking Sex

Not all lubricants are created equal, some market themselves as extra lubricating for anal play, some tasty for oral, and others for warming or tingling sensations for heightened arousal. But in the heat of the moment, do you want to have to sort through your copious amounts of lubrication bottles to find the right one for the occasion? 

Lubricants can lead to some very enjoyable, slippery, silky, and messy (in a good way) sex. But have you ever bought lubricants that stain the sheets? Or left you a sticky mess smelling of artificial fruits or take a couple of washes to get out of your hair? Good news, your kitchen is most likely brimming with alternative ingredients for a natural, edible, and incredibly smooth homemade lubricant to enjoy over and over and over again.

A good base for a homemade lubricant can be found in your kitchen.

DO NOT use or at least know the issues that can occur.

Are you a fan of sandalwood, jasmine, lavender, or the fragrant slightly fruity floral scent of ylang-ylang (which is also known to be an aphrodisiac, winning!)? Add a couple of drops of your favorite essential oil to your base, but do check the ingredients on the bottle to make sure there aren’t any additives.

Sex Toys

To know which lube to make and play with, open your drawer of fun and check what materials your sex toys are made of. For example, most oil-based lubes can break down materials like plastic or silicone, which could potentially ruin one of your favorite toys. Yet water-based lubes are perfectly safe (and easier to clean when you’re done). If you enjoy porcelain or glass sex toys, then all lubes are safe.

Recommendation on lube base – cornstarch and water – although it may be a little work in the kitchen to make, it is completely safe with toys, super cheap, AND who doesn’t have cornstarch and water around? 

Condoms – Latex vs Non-Latex 

Latex – you want to avoid any oil-based lubes when using latex condoms. Latex is made from natural rubber that oil can cause to break or split, increasing the risk of all the reasons why you wear a condom – pregnancy and STIs. 

Non-Latex – Sorry, you have to do some reading. Check the box and see what the condoms are made of, these are the two main materials in non-latex condoms. 

Polyisoprene – No oil-based, but water-based and silicone-based lubes are ok. 

Polyurethane – All the lubes, have fun! 

Now that you have a little info on items around the house that you make a great home made lube out of, and now you know which lubes play nice with different sex toys and condoms, here’s two great recipes, one for water-based lube and one for oil-based, depending on whats in your pantry and your bedside drawer.
