I mentioned this in passing in a comment in another post, but I'm curious: how many of you use spit as a lube when inserting your cup?  It dawned on me recently that maybe this is a "weird" thing to do.  I usually lick a finger or two of my left hand (cup in my right) and run it around the rim of my cup before folding and inserting it.  For me, it makes inserting my cup 100% easier so I'm not going to give it up, but I guess I was just wondering if I'm alone in this.

 Mega gross secret confession:  When my cup is totally clean, I have been guilty of licking the cup itself.  :-0

I don't lick it, but I just run it under the faucet for a second so it's not totally dry.

Oh wow. I don't think I'd ever manage to lick my cup. I usually wet it under the tap.
I wonder what will happen to me when I'm outside India and don't have water literally on tap - everywhere!

I leave the cup wet after rinsing, it's more convenient, but I wouldn't mind spit. In fact, now that you mentioned it, I'll probably end up licking the cup out of curiosity ;p

Please note that I'm not grossed out by this in the least and am quite comfy with my own bodily fluids. I just had to pass on some information that I heard...whether it's 100% accurate or not I don't know. The human mouth is literally infested with thousands of bacteria. If you get bit by your neighbor's dog on one hand and on the other by your neighbor himself...the hand bit by your neighbor will get badly infected. Ok, here is TMI for ya...I like oral sex and was saddened when I had to stop receiving due to what seemed like endless bouts of bacterial vaginosis. A question my OBGYN asked me was do I participate in oral sex I said yes and that is the information she gave me. I think your vagi (that's my cute little nickname for my girly part lol)is cleaner than your mouth. You have to wash your hands before inserting or removing your cup kinda makes sense. Ok so...I couldn't live without oral sex and instead of just the twice daily brushing that my man (ex) routinely did, He agreed to Lysterine atleast half hour prior to engaging with my vagi girl lol Things were 7th heaven after that.
Good luck
