Xanthan gum for lube

Post by MrMarried »

I usually get the Equate brand lube from Walmart, and I like it as good as KY or a bit better. Coconut oil is just a little less viscous than I like, and it degrades rubbery rings and toys.

But these days when I go to buy equate lube, there isn't much left but the higher end, expensive brands. Maybe folks are entertaining themselves at home a lot these days. I've taken five trips to maybe four different Walmarts and haven't found lube.

I read a long time ago that Xanthum gum could be used for a sex lube. It's a powder that can be put in soups. I read one webpage that said that it is a zero calorie carb that is good for gut bacteria, but it is kind of sythetic, and I am not sure about it. They use it in salad dressings and ice cream.

I put a bit in a little bottle, maybe a t-spoon, and filled it with water. It makes a pretty decent lube for handjobs. We haven't tried it for intercourse yet.

I think it may be one of many ingredients in lubes from the store.

Is that XanTHUM or XanTHAN? I've never heard of XanTHUM, but I use Xanthan gum for gluten-free cooking (it acts as a thickener, as you describe).

I have never heard of this as a lube. I will offer that over the past year when shopping at Walmart that the shelves are normally bare where condoms and personal lubricants are stocked.

I have seen the same thing, barely any lube at Walmart. Goes along with sex toys sales were good last year and people staying at home!

It could be more of a raw material issue. There are common products I still can’t find, even after a year of this.

Maybe the toilet paper shortage was about people wiping the stockpiled lube off.
