    @hidingmyface:  We don’t always need to, but when I need a little extra… help we do. I hate hate hate lube- I just don’t like getting it on my hands and it always seems to end up on our sheets as well.

    No, I don’t like it for some reason.

    I have the same “dryness” issue.. We use saliva in a pinch but most of the time it’s not enough. We go the KY yours & mine duo set… The commercials aren’t exaggerating.

    @hidingmyface:  hehe that’s why I love the Bee. You can ask strangers embarassing questions 🙂 I definitely agree with it being handy and not sticky! Who wants to fumble around for lube “in the moment”? Haha and I hate that sticky feeling!

    We use it sometimes, but usually along with lube. I am pretty sensitive and get irritated easliy as well as take awhile to get wet so we use it to get started

    Sometimes – but only if my lube isn’t handy (we’re at a hotel or somewhere not in our bedroom, basically).  My lube works soooo much better (and isn’t sticky).

    We used to, but now that we are TTC we only use Preseed. It’s one of the only “safe” things to use since saliva can kill sperm.

    Occasionally in a quick spot, but for certain acts (anal) we need a real lubricant – I’ve found “Slippery Stuff” to be the BEST. I used to hate lube, too, but this is paraben free and water based. It’s not sticky at all, doesn’t leave anything behind when it dries (I’ve gotten it on the sheets and you don’t even notice afterward), and you don’t need to use a lot.

    @MissCalifornia:  thanks! I’ll have to check that stuff out. Maybe TMI… but FI really likes anal and the only reason I avoid it is because I hate the all the lube we’ve tried (and like you said- saliva is definitely not enough for this).

    We use both. Sometimes saliva doesn’t always do the trick. I think it’s my BC that makes me so dry! Very frustrating. Can’t wait to get off it in a few months.

    @MrsBeck:  Granted, it’s the only one we’ve tried but I haven’t had any complaints – it’s really smooth and makes the experience so much better hehe.

    @MrsBeck:  Another one you might try is the Astroglide Natural lube.

    It isn’t sticky at all, long lasting (we’ve never needed to reapply), and honestly feels pretty darn similar to my body’s own lubrication.
