Is albolene a safe lubricant for toys?

Is albolene a safe lubricant for toys?

No: It looks like albolene is a moisturizer/cleanser. You should use appropriate "personal" lubricants for toys or sex. For most toys (especially silicone ones), a water based lube is recommended. A silicone based lube may also cause damage to condoms (not a good thing!). A good water based lube is slippery stuff which can be found on-line.

Producing too much lubricant. Is there anything to reduce amount produced?

Producing too much lubricant. Is there anything to reduce amount produced?

Not really: Lubrication is the female equivalent of male erection, so it would be similar to asking how to have less of an erection. Short of medications which may interfere with or impair sexual function, unnatural stress, or menopause, there is not much to reduce lubrication. I am guessing this is normal and not recent with symptoms of a vaginal infection.

Why can't you use Vaseline as a lubricant for any kind of sex?

Why can't you use Vaseline as a lubricant for any kind of sex?

Vaseline and latex: Water based lubricants are better for sexual activity. Furthermore, Vaseline cannot be used as a lubricant for intercourse when latex condoms are used. The petroleum products in Vaseline can degrade the latex leading to condom failure and unintended pregnancy/disease transmission.
