Most of K-Y's popularity over the years is due to the fact that it is water-based, and therefore water-soluble, and easier to wash off than traditional petroleum-based lubricants.
However, gels containing l-arginine or an extract from the Thai herb Butea superba are able to stimulate the body’s own intimate lubricating fluids when applied on the clitoris, CLICK HERE for page 12 of The Truth about Bananas and Orchids.
All is not lost for this external lubricant. K-Y Jelly is moving out of the bedroom and into your hair, shoes and clothing.
KY Jelly makes a great hair gel – it may give you that aura of sexuality.
Some practical everyday uses include loosening a stuck ring, loosening a zipper, polishing your shoes and leaves on plants and using it to slip on a tight latex tube top.
Other ideas include lubricating furniture bottoms when moving a heavy piece across wooden floors; substituting K-Y jelly for shaving cream and even using it to moisturize chapped lips.
Apparently, Nick Rhodes of Duran Duran suggests you dump out a whole tube or bottle of K-Y into a zipper-lock bag and freeze it. The frozen bag of goo then can be used to reduce puffiness under the eyes.
