So I was watching Jane the Virgin the other day and (while pretending to be Samantha from Sex and the City which was hilarious) Janes mum, Xiomara made a joke about having sex in a public bathroom and said “hand sanitiser is a great lubricant!” i get this is a TV show and this is a joke, but is it ok to expect better from pop culture than to spread misinformation about sexual health?
I actually really love that show cause it is stupid! but I never really thought about that. I don’t actually even remember that line. I guess that goes to show how little attention some people can pay to shows vs others but its a good point you raise!
@Nurse_Nettie what would the effects be if someone actually used hand sanitiser as a lubricant?
Firstly it would be irritating to the sensitive skin of the genitals, secondly it would mess up the natural balance of bacteria in the vagina (likely causing an infection); and thirdly, it would be useless as a lubricant since it’s designed to be absorbed quickly.
Real lube is easy to find at supermarkets, chemists, online or at adult themed shops 🙂
hahaha i know right?! I was just like “NO IT”S NOTTTT! PLEASE STAHHHP THAT WOULD NOT WORK” I love the show too 🙂 I think it’s done shows some really good sex positive stuff and shows the effects of sex-negative attitudes.
