2) Olive Oil Every household (should) have olive oil in it, and while it is safe for vaginal use and anal sex, there are a few risks you should be aware of. For one, oil-based lubesboth the manmade and olive varietiescan break down condoms. You can, however, use olive oil on synthetic condoms, like those made from polyurethane . (This risk is why many lube companies don't actually make oil-based lubes, instead sticking to water-based or silicone-based). Second, oil is thicker and doesn't easily dissolve in skin. That means it can clog pores, trapping bacteria in the vagina and anus and increasing the likelihood of infection. That said, using it once or twice while you wait for your Amazon Prime delivery isn't going to kill you. Although it might be worth it to shower afterwards to get all the olive oil off (or out) of you. Oh, and speaking from personal experience: Be careful with your sheets. Olive oil can stain.

3) Coconut Oil Coconut oil is another natural lube alternative. It carries the same risks associated with olive oil, along with potentially disrupting pH levels inside of a vagina , which can increase the likelihood of getting a yeast infectionespecially if your partner is already prone to them. That said, coconut oil is a common, even preferred alternative for many gay men who don't use condoms, so it might be better to try out some anal play if you're using coconut oil.

4) Peanut Oil Peanut oil tends to be less viscous oil than some of the other vegetable oils out there, says Ingber. And studies show when heated to body temperature, it actually becomes less viscous. Some folks may actually like this, as it may be more similar to the natural lubricant provided by physiologic sexual secretions, explains Ingber. Nevertheless, like with the other oils, you want to keep an eye out for signs of yeast infections, bacterial vaginosis, or urinary tract infections (UTIs). Additionally, as it is an oil, its not recommended for use with condoms. jayk7 - Getty Images

5) Vitamin E Oil Some people keep their medicine cabinets stocked with Vitamin E oil to use as a moisturizer for the skinand they also turn to the substance as a lube alternative, Alyssa Dweck , MD, a gynecologist in New York, told Women's Health . At this point, you know the drill with oil-based lube alternatives: They can break down condoms, and some women may experience irritation. So use with caution. Ake Ngiamsanguan - Getty Images

6) Cornstarch and Water This alternative isn't great if you need lube in a jiffy, as it requires a little bit of work. (Very little, but still more than pouring out oil directly from the bottle.) While there's a little variation with online recipes , the general consensus is to dump four teaspoons of cornstarch into one cup of boiling water. Stir the pot continuously, or your lube will get lumpy. If you like your lube feeling thicker you can add more than four teaspoons, if you like thinner lube then two will suffice. Stir for about 15 minutes, and then let it cool naturally. (You don't want to put it in the fridge to cool or again, you'll end up with some nasty, lumpy lube.) When it's cooled off, pour your new lube into some Tupperware or bottle for safe keeping. Store at room temperature. Even though it can be a little bit messy, the texture is silky smooth and cornstarch is naturally hypoallergenic, clinical sexologist and certified sex coach Sunny Rodgers told Dollar Shave Club , adding that the mixture is "condom compatible." minadezhda - Getty Images

7) Aloe Vera If this list were a competition, aloe vera would win. You can use it with latex condoms. It's slippery, soothing, and can even help prevent yeast infections as opposed to increase the likelihood of getting one. The only thing (and we can't stress this enough) is that it needs to be 100% pure aloe vera. Jennifer Wider , M.D., previously told Women's Health that many aloe veras contain artificial ingredients that can irritate vaginas. Additionally, some folks with sensitive skin might have a reaction, so it might be worth it to put a small patch on your skin, wait a few minutes to see if you have a reaction, and if not, go ahead and lube yourself up.
