Spray-on K-Y Lube

No mess, no fuss.

Sexual lubricants could be packaged in aerosol cans.

This would remove the awkward moments during application. It would also solve the problem of where to wipe the hand that applied the stuff, and the problem that occours when you drop a bit on the sheets.

It could be combined with aforementioned "Luminescent K-Y" for first timers. A peppermint flavour might also be available, which could double as a breath freshening spray.

In a similar fashion to other aerosol lubricant currently available from your local hardware store, (eg WD-40 & RP7 in Australia - dont know for US & Europe), spray-on K-Y might come with a little tube that attaches to the nozzle for these "hard to reach" spots.

(?) Possible K-Y Jelly name origin http://www.pharmweb.../0094/msg00061.html
A thread from pharmweb, where, last autumn, the question about the origins of the K-Y Jelly name was posed. [bristolz, May 28 2001, last modified Oct 04 2004]

Spray-on KY -- AKA KY Mist http://www.highbeam...3ADocG%3AResult&ao=
[fl_al_couple, Jun 21 2006]


       Although this seems initially attractive, I can see real health hazards if this was used, say, to insert lube into a woman's hard-to-reach spots. I'm thinking of all that "vaginal embolism leads to death" stuff that they drilled into me....
clynne, May 28 2001

       You think it's easier to wipe off the overspray rather than apply the KY to the desired area? Whatever. Even if you use one of those little tubes, you're going to need to spread stuff around a bit, to even the application. Should it also come with an application brush? In short, regardless of how you spray it on, you're going to need to either, wipe up the mess or spread the stuff around, so you're going to need to get down and dirty before you get down and dirty.   

       >>PS If you're doing things right (i.e. slowly and to the satisfaction of your partner) you shouldn't need KY.<<

       Full-fat whipped margarine, as approved by the USian Food and Drug Administration, and as supplied to Her Majesty the Queen, is a safe and healthful oral lubricant that may be available locally in spraycans (aka Sprutter). K-Y jelly is not good-tasting on tarts, and is disliked by crumpets and/or strumpets due to the greasy stains it leaves on napkins. Next time you eat out, remember Sprutter--the "other" yellow fat.

       doubles up as breath spray?!   

       oh good God no thankyou!   

       ps. what does the KY stand for?
panthaz paradise, May 28 2001

       And with a squeeze of lemon, you can have the fish and eat it too.
thumbwax, May 28 2001

       And there are other things one might need a lube for.   

       I couldn't find what KY meant either...   

       Then there's Y2K jelly...lets you get four digits in where you could only get two before...
StarChaser, May 28 2001

       One thing that everyone seems to be overlooking is the problem of refrigeration. When compressed gasses are released their temperature drops. Cold lubricant would be worse than messy lubricant. At least when applying it by hand you can warm it first. (And it has got to be more fun.)

In general, barring illness or other dysfunction, iuvare is right. If you're doing it right you shouldn't need it.

       Little known fact--KFC originated in Utah
AfroAssault, May 29 2001

       According to Britannica (see link) Sanders was born in Indiana and in 1929 opend "Sanders' Cafe in the rear of a service station in Corbin, Ky" where the recipe was developed.

So the Utah story is a little suspect. I'd trust an Encyclopedia Britannica article before an unsubstantiated "little known fact".
sirrobin, May 29 2001

       Regarding K-Y Jelly. I found a reference from a British pharamacist stating that K-Y Jelly derives its name from something known as a kymograph, a drum-based device used for recording variations in pressure, esp. blood pressure.
bristolz, May 29 2001

       You mean like . . . "Fried Utah Chicken Kentucky?"
bristolz, May 29 2001

       Iuvare and Sir Robin, there are situations where, if you're doing it right, you want to use lube just to minimize, say, the teeny rips that can occur when a non-self-lubing part meets another part that doesn't naturally make a lot of lube. Oh, hell, I'll stop dancing around the issue: lube is a good idea in anal fisting, even when you do it right.
clynne, May 31 2001

       clynne: good point and one I should have thought of. Not something I'm into so I guess it slipped my mind. Lubrication's a good idea for anything anal. My point about cold and hand application still stands.
sirrobin, May 31 2001

       UnaBubba: I know it's an old joke, I just thought it was appropriate...   

       And it isn't just hands or fists that might need a bit of slippery help...
StarChaser, May 31 2001

       Oh yes, iuvare, please tell us how to "do things right." You sound like someone who advises people not to wear seatbelts so they won't be trapped in the flaming wreck of their car.   

       I would like to point out that KY jelly and other lubricants also have non-sexual purposes, like for easing the entry of specula and rectal thermometers. Also, lubrication is a very important part of safe sex. Natural lubrication may not be enough to keep a condom from tearing. As mentioned, it's vital for anything going up your butt. It's important for vaginal fisting as well as anal. And what the hell, use it when you whack off so you don't chafe (which can open avenues to infection on your wee-wee).   

       But anyway, spray-on KY sounds pointless to me. I don't see how it would be less awkward, only messier. And are you really concerned about KY on the sheets? You're about to get something even worse on them.

       ...and you sound bitter, but that's okay. We can still be friends.

       It's also used to make cats scream. <When I got my kittens and they did the worm test, they dipped the widget into a little bottle of KY with a 'medical lubricant' label covering part of the original...was funny...One kitten just sort of shrugged, the other one <Less than one pound at this time, remember> screamed, screeched, managed to leave scratches in the stainless steel table and ultimately required two people to hold her down and one to do the test. Plus some medicinal alcohol and bandages for the humans involved...>

       two words : COOL WHIP !

       Which came first: the chicken or the franchise?

       A roll on applicator might be better.
