Speaking of lubes, UCLA researchers found 4 out of 6 most used lubes are toxic to rectal lining

This bit of information was pointed out by a Facebook subscriber in Texas. One of the studies mentioned in the article is actually right here at the University of Pittsburgh – The Microbicides Trials Network. You can find out more about it under our “Get Involved in Research” tab. 

As the article notes: “Subjects who used lubricants during anal sex were three times more likely to contract rectal sexually transmitted infections than those who had anal sex without lubricant, found UCLA researchers. This and one other study examining the effects of sexual lubricants used in anal sex were presented last month at the International Microbicides Conference.” The bottom line is two of the lubes tested were found to be nontoxic – Wet Platinum and PRÉ.
