Yes the risk of STDs, HIV and pregnancy even from a microtear can be a life changing one.

The quote from the article "Also, there’s not much research out there on coconut oil’s particular effect on latex. It may be that coconut oil doesn’t (or doesn’t quickly) degrade latex condoms," does not sound that definitive to me, I would not use it.

But not with condoms. Oil breaks down latex and leads to failure, kind of defeats the purpose of the condom.

Our skin absorbs everything we put on our skin. We absorb hormones transdermally, we absorb minerals transdermally. Why would you want to absorb harmful processed chemicals in the most sensitive of places where the skin is especially prone to (micro)tears during contact?

I think the question has to do with whether the oil will damage/tear/break the condom.

I thought all oils were bad with condoms because they cause them to degrade and break but there's more to the story ...

Well I have heard of olive oil being used, so I don't see why not. As long as the oil has not been contaminated with other things, i.e. a dirty spoon being put back into the container etc. I myself have used yougurt as a yeast infection treatment (yes, putting it directly 'down there) and never had an issue.

I masturbate regularly with a mixture of virgin coconut oil and water, so I would think refined would also be fine. Coconut oil is antibacterial by nature, so I don't think contamination would be an issue.

coconut oil is not safe to use with latex condoms however polyurethane codoms are. They are also thinner so you feel more of the intimacy. Also coconut oil has natural antibacterial and anti fungal properties to it that lend to less chance of infections such as UTI etc. Once you try this combination you'll never go back to any other way.
