Here are some…: All forms of lubricating gel including KY jelly will serve well for vaginal penetration as long as being comfortable and not allergic, which could only be told by experience. Besides, as we age, all the mucosa and skin as natural barrier will not tolerate physical irritation as much as in younger age, resulting in postcoital vaginal irritation despite using lubricant. So, overindulgence is not adv
