Q. A long time ago you wrote about an old-fashioned hand lotion called Corn Huskers. There was a suggestion that it might double as a sexual lubricant. Well, I just thought you would like to know that I tried the Corn Huskers Lotion and it’s terrific!
I thought I was becoming impotent. It turns out the problem was the K-Y Jelly which tends to become thick and sticky. The Corn Huskers Lotion worked great and our problems have gone away. Its the best solution when you are aging and the natural fluids aren’t working as well as they used to. I’m glad I don’t need Viagra.
A. Thanks for the testimonial. We keep hearing that Corn Huskers lotion is good for sexual lubrication as well as for dry hands. In addition to guar gum and algin, it contains glycerin, which is a common ingredient in vaginal lubricants such as Astroglide, K-Y, Maxilube and Replens.
You may also want to consider a product called Sylk. It is made from kiwi vine extract and is quite slippery too. You can find it online.

    I checked out the ingredients recently…..SD alcohol, 40-B ? What is this, Algin, Oleoyl Sarcosine, Methylparaben, Triethanolamine, Cyanopis Tetragonoloba,What are these ingredients???? Guar Gum, I wouldn’t put this on a sensitive area. Will stick to Almond Oil or Coconut Oil.

    BE careful when choosing lubricants, choosing the wrong type can result in damaged condoms and unwanted pregnancy. There are 2 different bases… water and oil. Water based lubricants are safe to use with latex condoms while OIL-based ones can eat tiny holes in latex condoms, too tiny to be seen but big enough for microscopic sperm and or viruses (Stds) to pass thru.
    Corn huskers lotion appears to be a non-oil based lube but I’m not aware of any safety studies with it being studied for use with condoms lubricant. Coconut oil, is definitely an oil-based lubricant and would not be recommended if being used with latex condoms if pregnancy and std protection are needed. Always ask your pharmacist for help in choosing a condom-safe lubricant.

    I haven’t used Cornhuskers for a long time. Unless they changed the formula, it had a high alcohol content and made my hands worse by drying them out over time. So if it’s the same formula from about 10 years ago I’d think twice about using it downunder.

    Sylk works great,but a little pricey. Will try Corn Huskers, especially if it less costly.

    We have used coconut oil for years and it works great too.
