While silicone is very slick, we enjoy the option of going back and fourth to our toys as the mood hits us. Silicone limits our ability to do that, plus it seems less natural to use inside the body then a water based lube. We are "phasing out" silicone lubes....as we ADD silicone toys to our anal play repetoir.

I prefer thick water based lubes as well. As stated already its easy to switch to other toys.

I prefer waterbased lubes for anal because the cleaning process is easier/more pleasant. I don't really feel like washing out my ass with soap and water to get silicone lube out of me after I no longer, you know, need it.

Water because I don't have to worry about compatibilities!

Silicone based, most definitely! You need so much less than with water-based lubes and it feels a lot nicer, to me. We're actually getting rid of all our water based lubes!

We love silicone because they last longer, but we found that they don't clean up nearly as easily and they leave an icky feeling after play since we can't get it off. We've been sticking to water-based lubricants now.

While silicone lube lasts forever, water based lube just feels better.

Yea having to wash silicone out of your junk isn't fun!

I prefer a nice thick water based lube. It's compatible with everything, doesn't stain fabric and is easy to clean up. It's just more versatile!

Silicone based seems to be too messy for me, it stays around forever.

I always used water. Most of my toys require water and I like the feel of it better.

Unless I plan on using a silicone toy I always will pick silicone lube. Last longer, stays better and never seen any reason to clean up afterwards. Plus I can use it in the tub or shower, something that water based does not work well with.

I feel like water dries out so quickly. Maybe I haven't found the right one yet.

I have never had a silicone lube that I fell in love with. I prefer water based lubes.

There is less of a clean up required with water based lubricant and you don't have to worry about limiting silicone toys in the mix.

I prefer water based, but hybrids are good too.

I prefer water cause it goes with all my toys and I don't have to wait for it to exit my body like with silicone.
My body doesn't like getting rid of silicone lube very easily.

I haven't had an issue with the water/silicone hybrid lube though.

I said silicone only because it seems it would make it more comfortable. Ive never done anal though so don't listen to me. Lol.

Water, seems more nature-like than, say silicone. Also tends to dry up slower.

I LOVE silicone lube for anal play, especially Boy Butter which is made of coconut oil and organic silicone. It's super long lasting, whereas with water based you generally have to reapply. Great for steel and glass toys and you only need a few drops.

Though I do always keep water based around because I love using silicone toys.

Silicone based for sure.

Silicone is longer lasting and thicker, but it limits your choices of anal toys you can play with b/c you wouldn't be able to use silicone toys with it.

We use silicone toys and silicone lubes as we have found the good quality silicone toys (Tantus and Fun Factory for example) to be just fine with Pjur Original, anal and 'woman' lubes. The silicone lube gives long-lasting slip which saves us re-lubing part way through (which can be a bit of a mood-killer). However, for insertion we find Liquid Silk (which is a water based lube with a small proportion of silicone added) to make toys very slick indeed - helpful during those initial moments while things are still a little tense and tight.

So I guess our answer is BOTH - water-based to get it in and silicone to keep it moving!

I've tried silicone lube once. It was such a pain to clean up! Never again. I like water-based lube. It works with all my toys too.

water cause i think it feels better, is easier to clean up, and less messy in general.
i find silicone to stick around and be next to impossible to wash off.

Water is the best option,cause with siicone,it could eat through the material.

Water only because all of our anal toys are silicone except 1. We don't do anything anal other than toys right now.
