You can make sexual lubricants at home.
The purpose of a sexual lubricant is to reduce the friction between two moving objects, such as sexual toys or body parts. You can purchase sexual lubricants in some department stores, grocery stores, novelty shops or adult bookstores. You also can make your own in about 15 minutes with some common ingredients. Do not include any forms of oil--canola, olive or vegetable. Oils can cause vaginal infections in women.
1. Mix 4 teaspoons of cornstarch with 1 cup of water in a bowl. If you are allergic to cornstarch, you can substitute potato starch. You can include a few drops of any flavored extract if you want the lubricant to be flavored. Pour the mixture into a pot and boil.
After a few minutes, reduce the heat to low. Allow the mixture to simmer, making sure no starch gets stuck to the sides of the pot. Stir until the lubricant is smooth and there are no chunks. When the mixture is smooth, like gelatin, it is complete.
2. Use plastic bowls with lids, or glass jars, to store your sexual lubricant. Pour the lubricant into the containers. Do no refrigerate or freeze your lubricant--it will form a hard layer of skin across the top that you will not want. Cover it with a lid or plastic wrap, and keep it at room temperature.
