    There's a product called preseed, that claims that it's the only sperm friendly "moisturizer" on the market. It's quite expensive (£15 for 6 uses), it comes in "single serving" packets (so they don't have to use preservative) and it just seems fussy to me. I want to keep on love-making, not baby-dancing if you know what I mean.

    Have a look at the precis of the paper they use as proof. I guess it was written before their product hit the market:

    It's very interesting. KY and other products perform similarly to spermicide! I've read else where that saliva and olive oil are also unfriendly. But canola oil is as good as a laboratory medium. And it's an excellent mono-unsaturated cooking oil :). If you do a google search for "sperm canola" you get - along with some weird hits - other web pages that seem to agree with this.

    The disadvantage of using oils is that your body can't flush it out as easily, but I'm not planning to use a lot, so it's probably not a problem.

    The supermarkets near me don't have it, but I've looked at Tesco online, and they have rapeseed oil. Yay! I'll pick up a bottle in store sometime, keep it in the kitchen and decant a small amount into a jar by the bed.

    Apparently baby oil has similar properties, but I am really reluctant to get a petroleum product inside my body.

    Thought others might be interested in this too.
