babelubeMost of the population doesn't use any lube. I don't have number but judging by the amount of people who come into Babeland and have never used lube, I figure I can extrapolate. That probably makes the likelyhood of home-made lube catching on to be highly unlikely but I really enjoyed reading this article nonetheless. Also, I'm incredibly lazy, so I'd rather just buy it. But just in case you're interested, you can make lube from flax, apparently! No chemicals or icky stuff and you can make a batch and then keep it in your fridge (cold!). To me the best part of making this is that you could experiment with different flavors. Maybe one day I'll make it (and I'd love to hear reports from anyone who as) but for now, I'll stick with good old Babelube. It's the best.Here's the recipe:
Simmer 1 tablespoon of flax seeds in 1 cup of water until it?s reduced by half (maybe 20 minutes). Strain immediately. (If you let it cool, it?ll be too thick to strain.)Store it in the fridge when you don?t need it ? it?ll only keep for a couple of days unrefrigerated.You could experiment with scents and flavors ? just add herbs or spices to the simmering pot! (Start with small amounts, though ? too much of a strong herb or spice could cause burning in sensitive areas. I?d avoid essential oils for the same reason. And though it might be tempting, I?d stay away from sugar, as it can lead to infections.)According to Sheri, the basic lube is condom-safe (it?s completely water-based). But if you do plan to use it with condoms, be sure not to add any ingredients that might damage the latex ? i.e., nothing oily or caustic.
