Wenthral - WD-40 tends to attract dirt and dust. I tend to stay away from it.

With the oil bottle in view, I thought it had to do with bike chains but wasn't sure.

Love Monkey - Not sure about Pam as an intimate lubricant but the wife and I tried olive oil a few back in an emergency. Mama mia!

I guess I'm one of the few people to recognize this object, and I'd suggest a wax-based lube if you use a Mountain Bike off-road, or a road bike as commuter, although a standard white grease'll work, too.

@dave: Don't use WD-40 as a personal lubricant, it burns; ditto on using Kama Sutra oil to shave with.

Wait! Freddie, who does it burn? Is this something guys should be concerned with?

A friend of mine claims to have used mayonaise as a personal lube. He said it worked fine but the smell the next day was horrible.

The way he told the story, he was having a party at his house while the parents were out of town. His girlfriend was in the kitchen with friends playing quarters. He started to get lucky with a girl in his bedroom and mayo was the only thing he could think of to help out in a rather dry situation. Of course, he had to go to the kitchen to get the mayo, and that is where the humor in his story took place. Well, that and the rank smell the next morning.

I tried to come up with a response to lostinthevalleygirl, but my head overheated and melted down one side...

on the other hand, how does the k-y brand of products do on bike chains? 😝

Ahhh... Mayo. A friend of mine woke up the next morning after a drinking binge to discover that he had mayo up his nose, and he couldn't figure out how it got there. Now we know.

but nethie the nose is pretty far from where one normally uses personal lubricant. :lol:

Patty, Maybe if you use the nose it means ya ain't gay ^_^

Nasal, anal. Only off by one letter. Now would that clear the nasal passages or only clog them up more? 😉
