August 5, 7: NSFW and probably gross for most people I'm talking gay unprotected anal sex. Assume these are two consenting adults that are engaged in a monogamous relationship. Don't derail my question with cautions of the inherent risk of bareback sex. It's extremely risky, don't do it!!!! Okay, lets move on. I know that popular opinion is against using this material for lube.
It breaks down latex in toys and condoms and can linger a bit so it could break down condoms used in the next few days or so. I've heard that it can harbor bacteria which is a risk for infection -- however, I just learned that silicone lube does this also and I've used it for years without any problems.
I've also heard that it's used for actual medical purposes 'down there' without issue. I've done lots of googling, but I can only find info about how you're not supposed to use it for vaginal sex and the occasional cautionary tales of condom breakage. So, that leads me to the question - can I use vaseline as lube and not mess up my ass or the ass of my loved one?
Assume frequent usage times per week, and a good shower post-coitus. It'd be great to hear from someone that actually uses it regularly or perhaps has a friend or whatever. This stuff is fantastic. The least-bad consequence is that it wouldn't be very comfortable. Take away the direct contact with soap and water, and there you go. Some people get lubricated several times a day. External cleansing is all that's necessary. Petroleum jelly can be difficult to clean from hairy areas.
If you use a light oil, like olive oil, to clean the petroleum jelly off before washing with soap and water, you'll have better success.
I didn't find anything specifically about petroleum jelly, but this tidbit of info about olive oil seems to apply: Just because olive oil is ineffective for use with latex does not mean you have to avoid using it in all cases. Although using a condom is always a good idea, monogamous partners who have tested negative for sexually transmitted infections STIs could decide to forgo a condom and use olive oil for lubricant.
However, even monogamous partners may think twice about an olive oil lubricant for other reasons. For some people, olive or any oil can clog the anal glands and follicles, which could lead to irritation and even fungal and bacterial infections. If you notice irritation after using any type of lube, it's probably a good idea to wash up well and switch to another.
Also, wash your hands before putting them back in the tub. But other than that, it's cool. As long as you're going bareback, I personally prefer olive oil or plain 'ol spit hey, this post ain't for the squeamish, right? I know it's old fashioned, but I'll be damned if it doesn't work best for us. Every respectable gay man knows that a happy pounding will take at least a day to 'work it's way out of your system'. But honestly, only YOU can tell by taking a look at what's coming out when you do your post-coitus business..
Your diet could actually make a difference. In other words, take a look at the paper buddy. Lay off the Vaseline. Butt hehe to reply to your question, I've never found any long term problems from using Vaseline - after all it was a staple around the house for YEARS before more exotic things came along.
Why propagate our reliance on foreign oil?? Really though, if that's your lube of choice and it works for you and your partner - keep on using it. Just check that toilet paper and keep having fun! I couldn't imagine how difficult it would be to remove internally, and buildup would definitely be a concern, especially at the rather awe-inspiring; well done!
Stick to water- or silicon-based lubricants. I prefer silicone-based, but just realized recently: I looked through their incomplete archive and couldn't find an exact match, but you might have better luck or just sign up and ask 'em.
It can be a little irritating but it cleans up nicely — much more so than other lubes. KY gets sticky quickly and we don't use it any more. Astroglide is definitely worth a try. That very heaviness smooths out the creases and wrinkles. At your idea of frequency, that may get quite important. This varies from person to person, butt also by situation.
Also, I'll point out that petroleum jelly is sold in convenient squeeze tubes, so the supply stays more sanitary. That being said, my lube of choice has for some time been, plain cooking oil. By 'plain', I mean the most tasteless oil you can find. I don't always like the fragrance of olive oil. If you can find a refillable squeeze bottle, it keeps things convenient and neat, too.
But seriously, the frequency you suggest is really amazing. And I don't mean for having sex, rather for anal sex. If I got it that way half as often, I'd end up in diapers seriously. But there is this other wonderful thing two guys can do, endorsed even by a former President of the United States: Clean-up is built-in, so you can enjoy it and fall right to sleep. Do consider too, if you're out for a long-term relationship, you want to vary the sex as much as you can manage.
Constant anal sex gets tiresome and mechanical, on the one hand, and on the other, can lead to addiction and dependency. In advanced cases, you end up a Size Queen, always looking for something bigger to stuff up your butt.
Next thing you know, you're the new goatse. I've seen it happen, I've been around a long time. The good stuff pure is sold out of a refrigerator at pharmacies Used to by a brand called "Wooltra". What I had was sold in a stick, like chapstick, but bigger.
But why not go with something designed for the purpose? I recommend Boy Butter posted by Lleyam at 5: He claimed don't know if this is true that Al Parker used to use it.
If you were in fact using it that frequently, though, you might have some concerns about how it would affect the insides. What the hell do I do with this Vespa?
