Q. My husband and I have found that olive oil is the best sexual lubricant, and it’s natural. First we tried Astroglide but didn’t find it helpful. We got rid of the product but kept the little container and filled it with olive oil. With about 5 drops for me and 5 drops for him, it works!
A. Thanks for this idea. Some people objected to the idea suggested by another reader of using a petrolatum-based hand cream as a lubricant. Olive oil is certainly natural but rarely people develop allergies. A skin test is prudent.
