Condoms are just not manufactured to be used with Vaseline as a lubrication. But, as is the case with other stuff commonly found in homesmany people pick up petroleum jelly and use it as a substitute for personal lube. Years ago, my ex and I used to use Albolene. Good lubricants fall into two main categories; they are either water-based or silicone-based. So far there is no reputable scientific study conducted ANYWHERE that absolutely proves beyond all doubt that it has negative health attributes, nor is there any factual hard evidence to support such a theoretical finding.
I also try to stay away from lubricants with a long list of ingredients.
Vaseline as anal lubricant
I personally hate vaseline or anything oil-based as lube, as a top, due to the difficulty of washing it off. I usually start with Vaseline on my first two soapy enemas and then switch over the KY. Vaseline is also unsafe to use with latex condoms due to the mineral oils it contains. Why Do I Need Lube? I recently purchased silicone rings and wonder if the Vaseline will ruin them.
