I read somewhere that using salive as a lubricant is not advisable since it kills sperm.  Preseed is what many people use for that.

My doctor actually told us to use a little vegetable oil.

I've heard the same thing...saliva can kill sperm. So I agree with Helen, you should use pre-seed instead if you need a little extra lube! Good luck!

Yup, I think most all the books and websites I've read say that saliva is not healthy for sperm. I've read about various oils, eggwhite, etc, but I think pre-seed is the only thing that doesn't have arguments against it.

I have heard about using egg whites also, however, they did caution that raw egg can contain salmonella.  I was a little concerned about that, so have opted to go the pre seed route
