Water-based lubricant is the most widely available and used lubricant for sex in the world.

Got an itch in your ditch after a roll in the hay?
Is your lubricant to blame?
If you are prone to yeast infections like thrush, avoid lubricant that contains glycerin. Glycerin is a form of sugar, and thrush thrives on sugar.
It's unlikely that a personal lubricant will actually give you thrush, but it can help create world it would like to visit.
It could be that you are allergic to one of the ingredients in your lubricant. A common lube ingredient that can cause an allergic reaction is the paraben preservative.
