Farewell, water bed

2001-07-07 17:02:11+00 by Dan Lyke 6 comments

Man cleaning up this mess is a pain, but it was worth it... Full-wave water bed to be replaced today. Bottle of Canola oil. Fun.

This entry was as just the above paragraph, but I thought about it a bit more and I think to make this an actually useful entry, I should provide some lessons from the experience:

  • It was only a fifth to a quarter of a 48oz bottle of Canola to get us rather slippery. I was kinda surprised at how little it took, given that my body's pretty hairy.
  • Showering all that oil off sucks. Next time I'd try water-based lube, although the cheap-for-large-quanties stuff like Probe[Wiki] would also need a spray bottle, lest it become sticky.
  • Let a bit of water out of the bed first. We didn't, and kept sliding off to the sides because of this.
  • Two was fun, I'd bet a few more to make a puppy pile would be an absolute hoot.

Those plastic matress covers you normally buy for incontinence or allergies also works well on a normal mattress. I always found cleaning off the oil to be as much fun as spreading it around. It's also amazing how little oil it takes to thoroughly lube two human bodies.

If you did it with more than two you'd have to be a very open group as there would likely be many 'accidents' as appendages found openings to slide into.

The othe rthing I didn't mention is that a clean towel for keeping oil out of the eyes is a must[Wiki].

And I'm not about to do the mattress cover trick on my new toy, but I have thought it'd be cool to have a bunch of gym mats...

I was walking through the kitchen last night, when something caught my eye and I broke out into near-hysterical laughter remembering this post.

One of the wedding presents we got and haven't used yet was the Polyc arbonate Quickmist Oil Sprayer from Williams-Sonoma. Sounds like it'd be just about the right size, even.

Enjoy the new bed, Dan!

Well, Dan. You've scarred me for life. Oh wait...no, I was already scarred for life.

I would add that I've found vegetable oil gets sticky way too easily, I personally prefer baby oil...doesn't get sticky, but do watch those eyes...baby-fresh eyes hurt.

I never seem to have the sense to plan for these "oil events" though...I've ruined more sheets that way...

I thought it was over a Juice or maybe it was at Clean Sheets, but I remember a story involving several rolls of plastic sheeting covering the entire floor of a house, numerous bottles of oil and a party. Anybody else remember that?

Dori, I'm not sure it'd apply it thick enough, but if you and Tom wanna try it and report back...

Dylan, no problems with stickyness, we were just using cheap Canola. Wonder if some types are better than others (although I'm not about to try it with $2/oz organic olive oil...).

Eric: Yep, although my formatter was screwed and I had to re-edit the entry to make it visible, putting "Clean Sheets" and "lube" into the Flutterby search engine got me the entry where I pointed to that article, which was titled Lube the World, I Wanna Get Off.
