Water-based baby oil?

So my husband and I are really into oil massages, but we're tired of forking out all our money on specially-made oils for internal use. We both know that any non-water based oil will break down the condom and make it ineffective towards contraception, but we were wondering if any of you had heard of water-based baby oil? Is there such a thing? Where could you get it? Is it safe to use internally? Thanks.

  • Massages can be very sensual!

    Some of the natural oils -- like coconut oil, probably others too -- work as a great dual-purpose solution. Both for a massage, and as a sexual lubricant.; Be careful though: you need to make sure that the oil is really natural, and not some factory-bottled, artificially scented version. In the latter case, you could easily get a (mild but irritating) infection.

    This happened to my partner and me when we were getting started. We now use the natural stuff and have no problem at all.

    Of course, we haven't been using a condom. So we don't have to worry about the oil disrupting that.

    Try some other form of contraception -- some of the spermicidal creams act as a dual purpose lubricant as well...

    PS: I have no experience with olive and other oils, but this too could work as well...

    • Spermicidal creams are made with detergents and are very irritating to the vagina. Instead you should use latex-free condoms that won't break down with oils.

  • Don't use baby oil. There is no such thing as a water-based oil, its a contradictory statement. There are however water-based sexual lubricants that you can buy at your local drug store such as KY or Astroglide. You should try using coconut oil for giving massages. It smells nice, is good for your hair and skin, all natural, and only about $10 for a jar of it. It's solid at room temperature but it turns more to a liquid once it warms up with your body temperature. You can buy it at health food type grocery stores like whole foods. Also, as far as I know it will not break down condoms because it's a natural food type oil, not a petroleum based oil. You can also use it internally as a sexual lubricant, it will not harm your vagina. So look into coconut oil!

    • Chemically, it doesn't matter whether the oil is "natural" or "petroleum-based", oil breaks down latex.

    • If this asker REALLY wants to use a massage oil, then they should use a latex-free condom. Lifestyles SKYN are a good option, they're made from polyisoprene. Since many people are allergic to latex, there are many latex-free condoms available on the market. These types of condoms will not break down in the presence of oils.

  • Water based oil? Someone failed chemistry as a kid. You don't have a choice but to fork out money unfortunately. Or get on the pill and save a ton. Use all the oils you want.

  • Grape seed oil works great and its safe inside.

    • ...but isn't compatible with latex condoms!

  • There is no such thing as "water-based oil." It sounds like you're looking for two things: An inexpensive lotion or oil for massage and a lubricant for sex. You can use cheap lotion for massage, but don't use it for sex. Get a water-based lubricant for that (lousy for massage btw) if you're using latex condoms.

  • i'd say just try ky lubes
