The Danger Of Using Coconut Oil As Lube

The Danger Of Using Coconut Oil As Lube

Many women love using coconut oil as lube. 

It’s great for massages. It doesn’t get absorbed easily compared to water-based lubes. Even a pinch goes a long way and lets you go multiple rounds. And it’s safe for vaginal use, even for super-sensitive women. 

But do you know that using coconut oil as a lube can rewire your brain? 

It’s true. The danger is that you’ll start to associate the smell with sex. And years later when you try to eat something with coconut in it, you’ll get publicly and unbearably aroused. 

Even worse, your body might start to depend on the coconut smell to get aroused. The result is if you ever find yourself without coconut oil, your body may refuse to get excited! 

This phenomenon is called Classical Conditioning, and it was discovered by a Nobel Prize-winning scientist. 

Does that mean you should give up coconut oil if it’s working great for you? 

The good news is you don’t have to. 

All you have to do is switch to refined coconut oil. It’s the same as unrefined coconut oil and they’re sold at the same price. The only difference is that refined coconut oil has no scent so it won’t rewire your brain. 

It’s also safe for vaginal use.

You can get refined coconut oil in the cooking oils section at Whole Foods or from any health food store.
