KY Jelly, exertion, heart condition

Probably more of a medical (or legal) question, but I unexpectedly found a tube of KY Jelly in the wife's boudoir and wondered whether it would be a good conductor for a heart rate monitor strap. Would it work well, or is it better to go for one of the medical products?
KY jelly is a good conducter and would work well. My question is why has your wife ky and you don`t know why ?
Thanks JL. In answer to the other questions, she said it was to keep the rubber trimmings and tyres on her car looking good (they don't)
I always just used a bit of spit. Probably a bit like your missus :-D (sorry)
I always did as well (for the HRM as well as the missus :) ). But have been reading up on spikes and troughs with HRMs and wondered whether a gel would be more effective.

Edited to add: For the HRM transmitter that is.


She's clearly failed in her understanding of domestic duties. Get her some of this;


One evening in deep conversation slip it in, about the use of KY jelly and it in and outs. If you start it off correctly you shouldnt get any friction. Unless the conversation heats up, if you conduct your self well you shouldnt feel the heat whilst with her. As with oil based products there is no danger of a tear up. Remember to apply your rhetoric liberally and whilst cold it will soon warm up.

Hope that helps take the sting out of the conversation.

I know it's a lot to ask of any man, but if you were to try a bit of extended foreplay ( and I don't mean handing her the housekeeping money), before giving your lass a proper seeing too, that might generate a bit of sweat, which is a very good conductor and your wife will no longer need the 205 Litre drum of industrial strength KY by the bed!
