Masturbation/pre-cum

Question
HEy.
I thought pre-cum was suppose to act as a lube too. but once when I was masturbating without lube, and i saw much pre-cum coming out of me, i used it. at first, the pre-cum was wonderfully slippery which was nice but as soon, it begins to dry up and my whole penis felt dry.. so i had to use lube. why is this so? until now, i just jacked off, the pre-cum is the same..it makes the penis dry..

Answer
Pre-cum, properly called bulbourethral fluid, usually only comes out right before ejaculation, so it is not readily available for masturbating, even though it can be slippery for a few seconds.  Commercial lube is better designed to last long and keep you masturbating longer.  If you are used to using lube, then stick with that.
