sticky through hulls

So I try to be a good do be and exercise my through hulls fairly regularly. They all work but on every boat I've owned the ones for the head exhaust gets sticky fastest needing a wrench ( they always put this one where you can get no mechanical advantage) not infrequently. ?Any tricks to keep the head through hull from getting stiff or g-d forbid freezing up?. Other problem is with the wife and I being fairly regular people that's the through hull that's hardest to exercise frequently. Now have fresh water flushing the heads. Smells like roses and violets in there but doesn't seem to make a difference to the thro hull. Also hear some folks say lubricate ( have all metal) every time it goes on the hard and some folks say don't bother it makes no difference. ?Any opinions?
