Dear KD: I have a Question about Lubricants

Dear KD: I have a Question about Lubricants

My sex life didn’t come into existence until my late teenage years, and when sex started happening for me, all I had foreknowledge of was the most convenient means to get the protected dick inside with as little pain as possible. The guy who took away my virginity simply grabbed for a Pears Baby lotion on his shelf when it was time for him to make the grand entrance. Another actually reached for his Vaseline jar! Let’s just say, that oiled dick did not make any headway.

My point though is, ever since I started having sex, the issue of lubricants has been defined for me as that item in a bottle or jar amongst the materials on the vanity table – lotions, creams, pomade.

And then, an article was published here on Kito Diaries a while ago about safe sex practices; in it was mentioned the bit about water-based lubricants and oil-based lubricants. And that began the journey of my enlightenment. After reading that illuminating article, I went on Google to discover that there was more to gay sex than slapping on a condom and grabbing for the cream bottle.

While I was contemplating this before-unknown aspect of gay sex, the TIERs 10-year-anniversary dinner happened. I was in attendance, and I went home that day with a goody bag, inside which I discovered, among other things, small wraps of lubricants.

I was excited, and when I had my next booty call, I slipped out one of the wraps, offered it to the naked mister next to me, and proceeded to have the smoothest shag of my life. It’s a wonder what the appropriate lubrication on a good dick can do.

But alas, all good things must come to an end. My God-given, TIERs-delivered lubricants have finished, and I’m here, seeking information on how I can most conveniently purchase or lay my hands on a fresh batch regularly. Are they gettable in your regular pharmacies? Someone I know said I could go to the TIERs office and get them, but that’d be quite the trip for me; I could go there, but I’m wondering if that’s the only option. Or are there any other alternatives?

A hoe needs your help, my fellow KDians. (Hi, Max)

    You’ve finished the lube already? **clutches tightly on chest**, let me reserve my judgement. Pharmaceutical shops have varieties, you could always find it there.

      Lol. What they gave at TIERs was like two small lubes, I believe. Not an entire truckload of it.

    Haba! Just enter any pharmacy or supermarket – shoprite, next etc. And u can purchase some. Or u can always go online – jumia, konga etc

    Its the 21st century. U can buy even human head if u go online

    Its my 2nd visit and first comment pharmacy..the durex safe is my favorite’s fragrance free and makes sex non invasive..dicks glide in easy..its between 2500-3k depending on where you buy..Astro glide gel works great too but it’s kind of thick gel formulation..little goes a long way as it melts during penetration..enjoy..

    Lol! I remember the ‘as I live’ post yesterday, the writter omitted the lub part! Water based lubricants are much in the market, different manufacturers and brand names! Apparently it is equally used in heterosexual sex so u won’t look weird getting them! Or if u are in the medical field, you can use D.R.E as an excuse!

    warning tho… don’t form the habit of always buying condoms or lubes at your neighbours pharmacy if you are never seen with girls.

    Hahahahahahaha! Timothy o!
    All good things must indeed come to an end.
    Nna go to any regular pharmacy store around you and buy them. There are different brands but the regular ones are Lubrica, KY-Jelly(which is my fave), Astroglide and Durex safe. The Lubrica and KY-Jelly seem to be the commonest though.
    My dear Timothy, I’m almost certain you turned the lube pack inside-out looking to milk every single droplet.

    I hate when tops dont come with their own lube and a good one at that. Its bad enough dt I had to shave and douche and starve myself in anticipation of your penis, the least you can do is get a decent lube

    I think its the tops responsibility to get the lube, and own a stock pile of them.

      Some bottoms have a preferred type of lube, in terms of allergies and comfort. So it will make sense for the bottom to have the lube especially when they are hosting.

      But I always think, whoever is hosting (top or bottom) should have lube at home. If the visiting bottom has a preference, the he can bring his own. Condoms are easy to carry around.

      I carry every freaking thing in a tiny compartment in my car. Condoms ✔ Lube ✔ and I don’t go cheap. Everything I buy for sex is actually the best I see in the store. So what do you say Chizzie, me and you? ????

    preach on chizzie……. chizzie is absolutely right….how can you expect me to douche, shave, and starve opps fast and you cannot bring a condom and a lube??? dude wah u coming to do then??? pray?? hell no….. hey pinkie….. missed u guys so much

    Oh but then again Chizzie is right. Of course its ideal for the bottom 2 also have some in store but a top should and MUST never run out of them! It’s paramount and to me, a top who always has lube screams POSH (just saying).

    It’s kinda somehow (for me o) to enter a pharmaceutical and ask for Lubricants. The way the sales personnel would be looking…una wey dey buy dey try shaa

    LMAO … this is funny as shit! The first few times i walked into a pharmacy to purchase lubricants, i was nervous and embarrassed as hell, especially the first time i had to buy it in a city in the east, the saleslady looked at me very oddly. But now i dont give a shit! i march in there and boldly ask for what i want, after all, if you stock it then obviously its to be bought abi? Lubricants are also used by medical doctors for rectal and vaginal examinations and by heterosexuals in cases where the female partner is experiencing vaginal dryness, hence there’s nothing gay or embarrassing about purchasing lubricants. Astro – Glide and Ky – Jelly are good and reliable brands; theres a cheaper brand that comes in small transparent plastic tubes, with blue caps – biko if you’re gonna bottom, avoid that brand, its very thin and slimy, for me, the thicker the lube the better …

    @Khaleesi the thinner fluid makes the sensation more intense for the person topping! The thicker the viscosity of the lub, the lesser the sensation!

      @Dickson, surely it’s the bottom’s comfort that is paramount???
