Frequently Asked Questions
Why use a personal lubricant?
A personal lubricant can provide comfort and ease during intimate activity and act as a vaginal moisturizer for women suffering from dryness.
What makes Astroglide unique?
Only Astroglide's trade secret formula is soothing, moisturizing, and virtually indistinguishable from natural vaginal moisture. It provides the highest level of slipperiness and retains its lubricating property for hours. It does not develop a rough, gritty feeling, nor does it become sticky. No other lubricant provides the same level of comfort, ease of use, and natural feel. Astroglide is non-irritating, and leaves no residue.
Who needs Astroglide?
Anyone who wants to take their sexual relationship to a new level of excitement. Astroglide allows couples to achieve heightened sensitivity and pleasure. Astroglide also makes safer sex more fun. It makes condom use more pleasant, making safer sex a reality for more people. In addition, women suffering from vaginal dryness can use Astroglide not only as a lubricant, but also as a moisturizer.
How does Astroglide enhance sexual activity?
When used during intimate activity, Astroglide definitely heightens sexual pleasure for both partners. In her book, To Be Alive, Carol Runowicz says, "Men go crazy: they call it Astroheaven." When used with a condom, Astroglide's slippery friction intensifies pleasures and, at the same time, provides a greater sensation of warmth and closer body contact, heightening pleasure and creating a stronger sense of intimacy. Glamour Magazine's sexual ethics columnist Lynn Showden notes: "A certain canny girlfriend insisted I try a product called Astroglide. Now a convert, I have to say even sex before AIDS was never like this. With these new high-tech lubricants, safe sex can be something of a revelation."
Is Astroglide safe to use with condoms?
Yes. Since Astroglide is a water-based, water soluble personal lubricant, it is safe to use with condoms. Only water-based lubricants should be used with condoms. Petroleum-based products (Vaseline, baby oil or mineral oil) can break down latex, increasing the risk of pregnancy or sexually transmitted diseases. In addition, moisture creams and lotions can interfere with vaginal pH levels and can cause irritation or even yeast infections.

Over half of all women between the ages of 18 and 29 will experience vaginal dryness, as will 80% of all menopausal women. Astroglide provides an easy, effective means of relieving the discomfort caused by vaginal dryness.
Can I use Astroglide while trying to conceive?
Astroglide is not a spermicide and will not kill sperm. Studies have shown, however, that Astroglide as well as other topical lubricants do inhibit the motility or movement of sperm. Knowing this, if you choose to use Astroglide, we suggest using a small amount applied to the outer area. Discontinue use if conception is not achieved in a reasonable amount of time. It is always advised to consult your physician first and to follow his or her recommendation.
Is Astroglide safe to use while pregnant?
Formal studies have not been performed on this subject, so please check with your physician and abide by his or her recommendation.
Can Astroglide be used with a spermicidal lubricant?
Astroglide (or any lubricant) can dilute the effectiveness of spermicidal products. It is best not to use a lubricant when using a spermicidal product.
Can Astroglide cause irritation?
Astroglide does not contain fragrances, colorings or other ingredients that are common irritants, however, any topical product can cause irritation. If you feel that you may be sensitive to one of the ingredients, discontinue use.
Can Astroglide cause a yeast infection?
Astroglide will not cause a yeast infection, however, there have been several women's journals citing glycerin as a source of yeast infections. This is not true! In fact, some yeast infection cures contain glycerin. An existing yeast infection can be made worse by using products containing a large percentage of glycerin. This is because the sugars in glycerin act as a food source for the yeast. Women who are prone to yeast infections should use a lubricant such as our Glycerin and Paraben Free Astroglide.
Are there animal products in Astroglide?
There are no animal products in Astroglide.
What if Astroglide is swallowed during intimate activity?
Astroglide is non-toxic and ingesting small amounts should not be harmful.
