Although a lot of people have claimed to have used olive oil as a lube, the result hasn’t been great for them. Although an oil, olive oil’s consistency and texture is far different than that of coconut oil. That’s one of the main reasons why many opt for coconut oil for smoother penetration during sex. Using olive oil for sex is not harmful as per reports but it may not be able to give you the same satisfaction as coconut oil.

Several users on the platform also recommended coconut oil as lube. While olive oil can still be considered as an option for vaginal sex, it is a strict no-no for anal sex. It is recommended that one uses either coconut oil or grapeseed oil. Another important point to note is to avoid using oil or oil-based lubes with condoms (especially the ones made with latex). The reason being oil-based lubricants can actually weaken the latex and cause them to break or tear. Not only does this increase the risk of pregnancy but can also make way for infections.
