My wife and I tried lube for the first time and within seconds, she started feeling a burning/hot sensation in her vagina and we stopped immediately. Now she has a fear of lubes and does not want to try any. Is she allergic or did we use the wrong type of lube?
Many lubricants are made with ingredients that are highly toxic to the body, especially for women because the vagina has no filter. Itching, burning, and a hot sensation could definitely mean she’s allergic to the ingredients in the lubricant. Two common ingredients in lubricants that have been known to cause burning sensations are parabens (which have also been linked to Cancer) and glycerin (which can cause vaginal yeast).
If you want to be able to use lube again, go organic and read the ingredients. If you never heard of it, you probably don’t want to be applying it to your precious parts. One of the reasons I love Sex Butter (http://www.sexbutter.net), which I recommended in the last question is because it’s made of ingredients I know and love; organic cocoa butter, shea, coconut oil, jojoba oil, grape seed and a hint of mint.
