The FDA’s Crusade Against Lube

According to Pahon, personal lubricants are classified as Class II medical devices, putting them in the same category as items like condoms, acupuncture needles, and powered wheelchairs. In order for their products to be sold on store shelves, lube companies must obtain what’s called premarket notification or 510(k) clearance, a process that requires a comprehensive round of safety testing.

As an example, K-Y Warming Jelly has an osmolality thirty times that of the body’s own lubricant and was found to increase transmission of herpes ninefold in the rodents tested compared to unlubricated controls. Lubricants Damage Epithelial Cells The cause of such increases may simply be due to epithelial cell damage...
