Water based, the only time we use silicone is in the shower and we keep it right in the shower.

Most of my toys are silicone, and patch-testing's a hassle I normally don't bother with, so water-based it is. I do have a bottle of silicone lube to use with TPR and glass, though, when I play in the shower.

Water-based all the way. Doesn't stain, easy clean up, compatible with everything... I don't use anything else!

We use oil based or silicone - never found a water-based product that we like.

I prefer silicone based but unfortunately I have an addiction to silicone toys so I often have to settle for water-based.

This exactly. It's just easier to have around because I don't have to worry about ruining my toys.

Water based so I can use silicone toys without damaging them. Though I just ordered an oil based lube and look forward to trying it.

I use water based for oral and vaginal sex but when it comes to anal my partner grabs the silicone. Silicone just makes things glide so much smoother

Water based, because 80% of my dildos are silicone. I was recently recommended Maximus water based lube, by an EF friend and am OVER THE MOON about it. lol I've never really been drawn to silicone lube. Maybe I'll use it more as I get more glass toys.
