Ginger Figging Lube

Being a long term fan of figging with ginger roots I had to come up with a way to make this delicious BDSM practice more convenient. While a peeled ginger root is perfectly suitable for insertion into the anus, it is not very usable for vaginal or clitoral stimulation. Nor it is usable on a penis. Experiments with ginger juice or ginger puree already showed some potential. Especially it was becoming considerable more potent and painful. However, in sessions it was still cumbersome to handle. The juice was flowing away and the puree was not sticking very well.

Couple of months ago I found a recipe to make water-based lubricant at home. Then one thing was coming to the other and the idea of ginger figging lube was born. Substituting the water with ginger juice yields a versatile tool of sadism.

My ginger figging lube is perfect for converting every plug or dildo into a figging tool. Also works very well for lubing up that pussy for an intense fisting session. Additionally the second recipe sticks very well to the labia and clit creating a lasting burning sensation.

Recipe 1: Slippery Lube

Ingredients:

  • 30 g Glycerin
  • 2.0 g Xanthan Gum
  • 70 g freshly pressed ginger juice (from ~300 g fresh ginger root)
  • 1.0 g euxyl® PE 9010 (sold as ChemiKons in Germany)
  • boiled water (optional for diluting the ginger juice)

Recipe:

  1. If you’re planning on diluting the ginger juice with water prepare it by boiling some water on the stove for more than 5 minutes to sterilize it. Let the water cool down to room temperature while preparing the ginger.
  2. Prepare the ginger juice out of the fresh ginger root. First peel the ginger and put it into a blender. The juice can be easily extracted by pressing the ginger puree through a dish towel.
  3. Weight in the Glycerin, Xanthan Gum and euxyl® PE 9010 (a.k.a. ChemiKons) and stir thoroughly. The euxyl® PE 9010 is used as a preserving agent. If you’re planing on using the lube within one week and store it inside your fridge, than you can omit it.
  4. Stir in the fresh ginger juice. It will take several minutes for the Xanthan gum to thicken. If pure ginger juice seems to hard for you, you can substitute some of the juice with boiled water. A mixture with 35 g ginger juice and 35 g water will yield a nice and sensual warming lube which I find very enjoyable for sex or for lubing up a Fleshlight.
  5. Fill the lube into a suitable container. I used dispensers with a small pump from Amazon.

Recipe 2: Sticky Lube

Ingredients:

  • 10 g Glycerin
  • 2.6 g Hydroxyethyl cellulose
  • 0.4 g Xanthan Gum
  • 90 g freshly pressed ginger juice (from ~300 g fresh ginger root)
  • 1.0 g euxyl® PE 9010 (sold as ChemiKons in Germany)
  • 1.0 g Lecithin in liquid form as emulsifying agent (I’ve used Phosal® 50 SA+)
  • boiled water (optional for diluting the ginger juice)

Recipe:

  1. If you’re planning on diluting the ginger juice with water prepare it by boiling some water on the stove for more than 5 minutes to sterilize it. Let the water cool down to room temperature while preparing the ginger.
  2. Prepare the ginger juice out of the fresh ginger root. First peel the ginger and put it into a blender. The juice can be easily extracted by pressing the ginger puree through a dish towel.
  3. Weight in the Glycerin, Xanthan Gum, Hydroxyethyl cellulose, euxyl® PE 9010 (a.k.a. ChemiKons) and Lecithin and stir thoroughly. The euxyl® PE 9010 is used as a preserving agent. If you’re planing on using the lube within one week and store it inside your fridge or freezer, than you can omit it.
  4. Stir in the fresh ginger juice. It will take several minutes for the thickening agents to thicken. If pure ginger juice seems to hard for you, you can substitute some of the juice with boiled water.
  5. Fill the lube into a suitable container. I used dispensers with a small pump from Amazon.

I’ve tried several different mixtures which finally led to these to two recipes. Hydroxyethyl cellulose based lube tends to separate into different phases. Hence it is necessary to stabilize it with a little bit of Xanthan Gum and an emulsifying agent. The Xanthan itself already acts as an decent emulsifying agent. However the Xanthan is much more slippery, which is not always desired.

Remarks:

  • Ginger essential oil will not work since it has no burning properties.
  • Best stored in your fridge or freezer. Due to the glycerin it will stay somewhat liquid even in the freezer.
  • The shelf life is not as good as poor compared with commercial lubes. Please discard once it is foul-smelling. The pure ginger juice versions seems to have the longest shelf life. But 4 weeks in the fridge seem to be the maximum you can expect. At room temperature it’ll last no more than 2 days!
  • Diluted ginger figging lube creates a very sensual and enjoyable feeling if used for lubing up a Fleshlight or similar toy. However, careful cleaning and sanitizing the toy afterward is mandatory.
  • It needs some time to build up the full burn. Keep re-lubing the whole thing to maintain the burning.
  • The burning of the ginger is quite painful although it remains bearable for most people I’ve played with in an enjoyable way.
  • If the ginger is to soft for you, apply heat. I did have great success with pressing a small coke bottle filled with hot water on cunt lips. Or stay tuned for my supercharged figging lube – powered by chili (trials ongoing).

[Update 21.09.2016]: I updated recipe 2 after several trials. The trials were started after a discussion on Twitter with @chimerabondage on using this ginger figging lube in one of his videos.
