Default Lubricate glass on glass joints?

Should I lubricate glass on glass joints or not? It seems there are two sides to this question. Lubrication prevents "frozen" joints and creates a better seal or keep the parts clean and dry and they seal quite well as is. Also if you think joints should be lubricated, what would you use?

as glass on glass comes from chemical gear, yxes you should lubricate, i dont know how it is overseas but in germany ther is 'schlifffett' like 'joint grease' but vaseline should do the trick too

Huh, ive never lubricated glass on glass joints. I had a custom smiley male bowl and a glass adapter, which worked fine without lube.

"Always lube it up a bit before you put it in" as my father says (he was talking about putting in screws, naturally)

Lube is never a bad decision

I find the best solution for avoiding glass on glass joint problems is to use brass hookahs.

I gotta admit I feel kinda weird putting some sort of grease on the joint even if it is only on about a third of its length. I have been using damp paper towel because I figured an old solution might work for a new problem.

Thanks for being so kind Juggy. But damp paper towel, I put that shit on all my bowls on all my hookahs. Still use grommets for hoses. Obviously I have been given good advice regarding GOG which I should heed.
