After the publication of my post 12 Little Known Uses For Coconut Oil, I received a number of comments from readers, via Twitter (@TheLadyTrainer), asking why I had chosen to omit the many sexual uses of coconut oil.
To be completely frank with you, I deliberately chose to leave out the many sexual uses of coconut oil because as a safe sex advocate I am always reluctant to mention the sexual uses of any product that is not compatible with latex condoms, which save lives.
The debate regarding whether or not coconut oil is safe to use with latex condoms is still raging on. On one hand, most health care professionals adamantly warn condom users to never use latex condoms with oil-based lubricants as these lubricants can weaken latex and cause the condom to break. On the other hand, coconut oil enthusiasts claim that coconut oil is the exception to this rule.
Since I am not a health care professional, but have a great deal of respect for those trained in the medical arts, I feel compelled to reiterate their warning, “Do Not Use Coconut Oil With Latex Condoms!” However, if you feel that I am wrong please feel free to discuss the matter further with your doctor.
Now, with that said, I also realize that not all of you, especially those of you in loving and committed relationships, rely on latex condoms for protection from STD’s and unwanted pregnancies. Therefore, I’ve decided to write this article for you. Enjoy!
What Type of Coconut Oil Is Best For Sexual Use?
Though unrefined coconut oil is tastier and far more nutrient dense than refined coconut oil, I must recommend refined coconut oil for sexual activity solely based on the fact that refined coconut oil is far more hygienic. Refined coconut oil undergoes a bleaching and deodorizing process it is free of dust particles and other material that may cause irritation during sexual activity.
Coconut Oil Makes Your Skin Shimmer And Glow
Coconut oil is the ideal skin moisturizer because of its tendency to melt into the skin and thus moisturize your skin from within. This results in significantly softer and visibly younger looking skin that has a radiant healthy glow. Best of all, your body heat will prevent the coconut oil from ever becoming gooey or sticky.
Those of you who are interested in experimenting with coconut oil in the bedroom should know that this oil has a unique tendency to catch the light, especially candlelight, and shimmer. The effect can be quiet alluring when coconut oil is applied all over the body.
- Fill your bedroom with candles
- Take a small amount of coconut oil and rub it all over your body
- Step back and watch your skin shimmer in the candlelight
Coconut Oil Is The Ideal Massage Oil
There are several reasons why coconut oil is the ideal massage oil because it is natural, hypo-allergenic, aroma therapeutic, and anti-inflammatory.
Besides being the ideal massage oil, coconut oil can also be used as fitness motivation. For example, if you have a partner who is reluctant to workout with you, you can bribe him/her by offering to give him/her a massage after the workout: the longer the workout, the longer the massage.
For your partner, this massage will be the best massage of his/her life! Ayurvedic medicine considers the scent of coconuts to be a powerful aphrodisiac. Coconut oil also contains natural anti-inflammatory components that help ease tension, muscle soreness and joint pain. These factors, coupled with the fact that your partner will be high on feel-good, post-workout endorphins just might put him/her in the mood for yet another workout
Last but not least, since coconut oil is a non-allergenic, all-natural massage oil you don’t need to worry about clogged pores or allergic reactions.
