For me lube is useful above 70mi or so. My POV is that there is plenty of moisture down
there already so you don't need to add any more. I have settled on vaseline as the lube
of choice for the crotch as it lasts a long time and doesn't, as yet. have any side effects.
More expensive variants on the same theme are bag balm and udder cream, which are
vaseline with added odorants and menthol. I suggest you look at the list of ingredients
for any prospective crotch lube and discard any which have water listed in the first 2-3
ingredients. Any cream described as 'vanishing' is likely to not be effective for very long.
The reason they 'vanish' is they are mostly water which evaporates. As noted you don't need any more water down there. Reapplication rates
will vary depending on your crotch and experience, but the main reason to use a lube
there is to prevent skin chafing and irritation so reapplication when the palpable grease is
gone to an exploring finger would be the rule, probably at 80-120mi intervals.
Don't worry about 'sealing the pores', it doesn't happen. If you are worried about infection
then get a tube of polysporin (NOT NEOSPORIN!!!) and mix 50-100 grams into the 8-12 0z
jar of vaseline. Neomycin is a skin sensitizer, so a small percentage of people will get a
poison ivy like contact dermatitis from it, risk goes up with length of exposure.
