Personal Lubricants: The Best and Worst Lubricants to Use for Penis Exercises

personal lubricants the best and worst lubricants

personal lubricants the best and worst lubricantsThis article takes a look at various lubes used for certain facets of penis enlargement such as jelqing and penis pumping which require lubrication. You will read about what several active PEGym members and vets use are their preferred penis lubricants, as well as many that should be avoided.


Men should always determine the right lubricant to use for their Penile Enhancement routine. Your wet jelqing exercises will require a decent amount of lubrication to carry out; the lube’s purpose is to limit the possibility of injuries and allow you to work the entire surface of your penis comfortably and smoothly.

Keep in mind that lube preferences are just that, a personal preference. I encourage you to try several kinds, including combination’s, to find what best suits you. However, there are some that are better than others and several that you should avoid altogether. The best lubes will leave your skin soft and in an excellent, healthy condition. The worst can cause skin irritations, itching, dry skin, and chemical burns.

Also consider the longevity of your lube’s effectiveness if you plan on long jelqing sessions; for example, Vaseline lasts much longer than baby oil before you need to reapply it.


Price is something to keep in mind if you are on a budget. Some of the lubes listed below are expensive and not as available as others; but there are some very effective low cost lubes listed as well. There is a good chance that you already have some of these at home.

Another thing to consider when purchasing lubes is their application with devices like penis pumps. Some penis pumps can be damaged by certain kinds of lubes, so read the pump manufacturer’s recommendations before you start.

Some of our members use a combination of lubes and highly recommend this approach. Others have particular ones that they use. Below are listed a few members that you might recognize from the forums. (This does NOT necessarily mean that any of these members like or dislike any other alternatives).


  • Going411X7- Combination of olive oil and Vaseline
  • Jonpop- Water soluble lotion with aloe, and vitamin E
  • BigAl- Pure cocoa butter
  • Pirate- Combination of baby oil gel and bio oil
  • Waylander- Bio oil and baby oil gel combo
  • Calixto- Olive oil with a light amount of Petroleum Jelly; now also using peppermint oil for relaxing
  • MrBigDick- Millennium I.D. (ID Lubricants by Westridge Laboratories, Inc.)
  • RockofFox- Vaseline
  • Millia- Bio oil
  • Kingpole- Mineral oil


There ARE commercially made jelqing and penis exercising oils and lubes available. In fact, some claim to enhance the effects of Penile Enhancement, but this article will focus on the ones that are most commonly used on our forums.

Lotions are another alternative and are likely to be found in your house. Most are fine for PE so long as they are not overly perfumed or have an over abundance of vitamins.

Natural oil based lubes are a good choice for jelqing and most can be found at your local grocery store. They have multiple uses, and are good for combining with other lubes. EVO and Bio oil are in this category, but EVO has to be prepared by you, and you will most likely have to go to your local pharmacy for the bio oil.

Water based lubes have several benefits. They can be used for sexual lubrication as well as for pe. They can be reactivated during your routine with water. Some members like this and some do not. K-Y jelly is the most popular brand, but it can be found in a generic form, which is cheaper. Wal-mart carries a version called “Equate personal lubricant” that works very well.


Petroleum based lubes are harder to clean off and some members feel that by them being a derivative of motor oil, they are not the healthiest choice. However, Vaseline, baby oil, and other products and by-products of petroleum have been used successfully by many members without issues or side effects. (Warning: Oil based lubes should not be used with condoms. See condom instructions).

One very useful tip that I have been made aware of by a few fellow PEGym Editors (NP97 and blink2000) is that since petroleum based lube is so difficult to remove, it is a perfect lube to use for jelqing in the shower or bath! Plus, its also more convenient for washing off since you’ll already be in the shower/bath.


  • Water– Water alone does little to nothing in the way of lubricating for PE and can cause chaffing and itching.
  • Soap– Soap will dry out the skin and irritate the urethra.
  • Shampoo and conditioner– I highly suggest not using shampoo or conditioner as a lube! Some men who have tried these out have noted chemical burns on their penises (The worst culprits seem to be conditioners).
  • Certain Essential Oils– Some essential oils are quite potent and can actually be used to chemically burn unwanted growths off of the skin. Using some of these as a lube may result in chemical burns.

Warning! If you have a peanut allergy, make sure that none of the oils listed below are mixed with peanut oil!


  • Bathmate Max Out Jelqing Serumbathmate max out jelqing serum – Specially-formulated jelqing lubricant. It’s ingredients will help you get the most out of your jelqing session. You’ll reach your penis enlargement goals faster with Max Out!
  • Essential Vein Oil (EVO) oil– Learn more about EVO in our article: Essential Vein Oil
  • Bio oil–This is quickly becoming a favorite with the members and can be mixed with other lubes such as baby oil gel, with good results
  • Baby oil/Baby oil gel–Mineral oil with added fragrance is also a petroleum byproduct. It has a long history of being used internally as well–as a laxative. It is another favorite of our members and can be found with vitamin E or aloe Mineral oil – Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
  • Canola oil
  • Vegetable oil
  • Olive oil
  • Coconut oil
  • Cocoa butter
  • K-Y jelly
  • Astroglide

  1. Just wanted to add that Hemp Oil works great, and it’s good for your skin!

  2. I too, use grapeseed oil. It’s really high in vitamin E, which is good for your skin, and I only apply it ocne and it lasts for the whole session. Only con is slightly difficult to wash off.

  3. My favorite one is “grapeseed oil”. This is cheap (12$ for one litre bottle). I never get any penis or skin problem with it. Can be use in the shower.

  4. Maybe the only “cons” of this website is it’s being so focused about the U.S. 🙂
    Those lubes are just not available it Italy but it’s assumed that one is American overall.

    Anyhow, not to complain without contributing! I find the following OIL good, because it’s smooth, lasts a lot, and is VERY, VERY cheap. The only cons is that you can’t use it with condoms because it’s not water-based, but who cares here.

    Olio di vaselina Marco Viti

    Have fun with your gun 🙂

  5. My favorite lubricant is EVO Oil (also called Essential Vein Oil). I combine this with a little cocoa butter and it works fairly well. Mostly, I use the EVO oil for recovery. It seems I heal just a bit faster with EVO. I would say it’s a placebo effect except that others seem to have a similar experience.

    Overall, this is a great article! New guys need to know their lube options. Not to steal anyone’s thunder, but NP97 recommends Vaseline as lube while jelqing in the shower. I think this is a great recommendation since most other oils will just wash off and go to waste if there’s even a little water flowing on you.

  6. Hey great article Waylander, love that you included the “Prominent Members’ Lube Preferences” section 😛

  7. This was a great article way 🙂 Now, let’s just hope people will read it before asking lube questions.


  8. Very helpful article. 😀

  9. Well, I don’t know if company really matters. But baby oil is listed up there so Johnson & Johnson is ok, right?

    All in all, love the article. Very convenient since I was looking into lubes. 😀

  10. Emu oil is amazing. A bit pricey, but a $30 bottle on amazon should last 6-8 months.
