I’ve been asked this a lot and thought I’d add a post on the reaction of latex to oil based products.
One of the properties of latex is it will almost instantly disintigrate when exposed to anything with oil and butter,(except natural body oils). We have experimented a LOT with many types of products. Any lubricant needs to be WATER BASED. There are a lot of them on the market and easily purchased at your local stores such as Walgreens and Walmart (which is why we do not sell them on our website). Some brands include KY, Wet, Trojan, Astroglide, etc. Make sure you get one that does not have silicone in it.
Throughout the years we have had a lot of requests for a Vee-String with latex and silicone. It just won’t work because of the chemical reaction. For some reason they don’t like each other.
Hope this helps…..
