A Porn Star Explains What ‘Super Lube’ Is

Hint: It involves coconuts

There are lots of lubes in porn, but coconut oil ‘super lube’ is one of our greatest industry secrets

Here you thought it was just ideal for cooking and baking.  Coconut oil is labeled a superfood, a health food, and in some circles, a functional food.  In porn circles, it is also considered a ‘super lube’.

We use coconut oil on set for anything from vaginal to anal sex, including its rejuvenating properties against sunburns, chapped lips, and its plethora of health functions. Of course, there are other options such as water-based lubes and silicon-based lubes. Coconut oil became an adult industry secret a few years back. The first time I’ve used it as lube was on a Brazzers set and I have fallen in love with it ever since. In fact, I love using super lube on set so much; it is now a part of my intimacy kit at home.

Here’s why:

  1.    It actually tastes great

I don’t know about you, but I have tasted lube that left an unpleasant aftertaste in my mouth – trust me, it really kills the vibe.

  1.    Helps avoid yeast infections

The Journal of Microbiology, Immunology and Infection [43.5 (2010): 447-451] determined that 1.5% concentrated coconut oil inhibited Candida albicans (yeast infections), with 3% concentrated coconut oil killing Candida albicans! This is not to mention that water-based lube, especially the flavored kinds may potentially cause a yeast infection and silicon-based lube may cause irritation if left on for too long. Nobody has time for that.Seriously we don’t.

  1.       It doesn’t disrupt natural vaginal flora.

Since gynecologist Albert Döderlein discovered these microorganisms that colonize the vaginal passage in 1892, coconut oil has now become appreciated for being the least disruptive of vaginal lubricants.

  1.     Natural eye makeup remover and skin moisturizer

I love getting dolled up on a porn set, but using facial makeup remover wipes on a frequent basis can irritate one’s skin. That’s when I turn to coconut oil to soothe my delicate skin and remove makeup effortlessly.

  1.    It makes an awesome hair conditioner

Being a porn star comes (no pun intended) with the inevitable cumshot. Yes, this means sometimes I get cum in my hair. So to keep my hair silky and smooth I use coconut oil after I properly shampoo my hair.

  1.    Skin conditioner

No one wants dry skin, it’s not attractive. Don’t be shy to use coconut oil where needed for that glowing skin.

  1.    Gets rid of hair frizz

I’ve been a victim of this.  Frizzy hair in pictures makes me sad, that’s why I always remember to smooth out my frizz with some coconut oil before a photo shoot.

  1.    Natural throat lozenge

Great for after performing a deep throating scene. I’m totally serious.

  1.   Natural immunity boost against colds and other viruses

Since coconut is roughly 50% lauric acid which the body converts into antiviral agents, it becomes a natural home prevention product against viruses like herpes, influenza, measles and much more.

  1.   Anti-fungal properties of coconut oil make it perfect for soothing your sunburn

I’m guilty of shooting outdoor scenes and forgetting to put sunscreen on. Lather some coconut oil over your skin gently and let the damaged skin absorb it. Another great plus: you smell great afterwards.

  1.   Can be used as massage oil

I recall a few incidents where a simple massage turned into a great night of passionate sex.  Hey what can I say, massage oil and lube all in one is a great deal!

 

If coconut oil super lube isn’t already in your life, it kinda should be.

Do you see where I’m going with this? Porn star or not, we all can benefit from the many uses of this wonderful super food.

I’m sold – where can I find it?

It’s so popular, you can usually find coconut oil at your local grocery store.  Depending on the store, it will either be in a health food section or with other oils in the baking aisle.  If you can’t find it on your own, don’t be afraid to ask a grocery store employee if they carry it at their shop.  After all, you’re buying it for health reasons. Right? Right! There is also another option – buy it online.

Coconut oil usually comes as a solid in a jar and has a melting point of 76 degrees F/25 degrees C.  A chunk of coconut oil will melt with your touch.  Alternatively, fill a sink or bowl with hot water and set your coconut oil jar in the water until it melts. Simple enough.

Whip it out, melt it up, and enjoy

So the next time you’re at your local grocery store do yourself and your sex partner a favor, grab some coconut oil and bring it home. Melt a spoonful or two, or go crazy and prepare the entire jar, let it get comfortably warm and use it as desired. If you happen to be living the single life, just remember that coconut oil makes for a healthy popcorn topping for your cozy night in with Brazzers.
