Petroleum jelly safe?

Okay...
I know it will hurt condoms (according to google)
But if no condom is used is it safe to use... just curious...

  • Just don't. Get yourself a proper water-based lube instead.

    Pure petroleum jelly wouldn't harm you, but unless it's sold specifically to be skin safe, it might not be pure (especially in the US with it's poor product labelling laws). It's also a pain to clean up, as it won't wash off with just water. A strong detergent that will remove it is pretty much guaranteed to also irritate your sensitive bits.

  • I used it to masturbate once years ago. I only did that once... lol It gets everywhere and the water I used to wash it off was cold because I did not wait for it to get hot. That cold temperature was multiplied by the Petroleum Jelly and wow was it a shock to my balls ;)

  • Oils will dissolve latex which is why you shouldn’t use them with latex condoms. Latex free condoms on the other hand are perfectly fine to use with oil based lubricants. Petroleum Jelly has been used for well over 100 years now from everything form topical antibiotics, to moisturizers, to makeup removers. Yes, it is safe to use. But there are better options for sexual lube.

  • If your asking about something for lubrication, I’d try for something water based. Petroleum jelly will clog pores and could block your urethra if it gets in there. (Or his) You will produce natural lubrication as long as your stimulated properly and you can always use spit on him if you are jerking him off and don’t have proper lube

  • external use is recommended. Anal sex is ok because its bacteria resistant your vagina is not.

  • Better to use like a clear lube

  • The guy who invented it had a tablespoon every single day for decades. Yeah, I think it's safe

    • I'll be he was regular

    • 🤣🤣🤣

  • Just get KY Jelly at the pharmacy.

  • Yeah. I wouldn’t. I’d go buy actual lube to handle any business

  • Its not dangerous but there are better lubricants to use. Doctors use it to take rectal temperatures so it won't hurt you in that regard but there might be some other caveats to it that can cause issues

  • For what purpose

  • You should use something water based

  • Yes, vasoline is safe to use. That’s the only thing I use.
