    Is glycerin safe to use as a lubricant for intercourse?

Posted on Wed, 30 Mar 2016 in Men Sexual Problems
Question: Is glycerin okay to use as a lubricant for sex? I have ED and use MUSE to get an erection. As soon as I apply K-Y jelly I start to lose my erection. But, if I use glycerin as a lube to masturbate it works great. I just don't want to do anything that would cause my wife a problem.
