What is your “go-to” lube? What is your favorite? Why?

P'Gell P'Gell
We all have our favorites and I was wondering what you like to use and why. If you use a lube with glycerin for your favorite, please state that this chemical doesn’t cause irritation (I am assuming it wouldn’t, of you wouldn’t use it.)

If your go-to lube is a silicone based lube, what do you use when you use silicone toys?

Is your lube selection different for PIV, toys or anal? Or do you use the same lube for all activities?

Other lubes or silicone or oil based lubes, please explain why you prefer these, and what you use when you use toys that are not compatible with these lubes.

Obviously, I couldn’t include all lubes that Eden carries, so please let us know what you like and why

Sliquid H2O Ride is our favorite. We may, on occasion, grab LELO Personal Moisturizer or even Hathor's "premium" lube, but Sliquid H20 Ride seems to be the lube we go back to again and again and use more than any other.

It's thick, it only has four ingredients, it is completely non-irritating (for us) it lasts a long time and it doesn't get sticky. I actually prefer the Hathor for hand jobs, (as some of the herbs in it tend to cause anal or vaginal irritation in me, but it works well for hand jobs) but for everything else, we go with the Sliquid H2O Ride.

We've come a long way since our Astroglide days, as we've learned more about chemical ingredients, lube viscosity and irritation and how to avoid it.

What is your favorite?

I use Wet Light (biggest bottle I can find which is 553ml for about 28 bucks and lasts me by myself about 2-3 months although I don't masturbate daily or use a whole lot), it's very thin and feels cold on your skin (like cold water) but makes everything a breeze for inserting toys. It's water based so it works with all my toys as well as being great for masturbation, It stays wet a decent amount of time and doesn't evaporate quickly (on toys about 15-20 minutes per small bit of application, masturbation varies on how fast I'm masturbating but around half the time most of the time). I've used Astroglide (I found it far too sticky and it evaporates way too quickly), the "Platinum" version of Wet (Silicone based but a pain to clean up and feels warm when using it for masturbation which I don't really like, hence why I don't use it much anymore), as well way back in the day I used a lot of ID water based stuff which was OK but not the best.

My wife and I prefer Climax Bursts Cooling. It is water based and feels great!

I purchased Topco's Climax bursts aphrodisiac enhanced and use it every time now. It isn't an aphrodisiac for me, but it's a really nice lube and it is water-based.

We are still trying to find our go to lube. We tried maximus and didn't like it much for handjobs but it works well for us otherwise. I'm going to have to do some research.

I have been using Moist personal lubricant, it is water based works well so far not sticky like other lubes.

Perhaps I am in a rut but I now use Maximus for everything and I so totally love the pump dispenser.

I love KY. I have used the jelly, yours and mince ect. and I love the plain old regular KY lube the best. It has no odor, and seems very natural to me. Very slick and a little goes a loooonnnggg way!

We love Maximus for everything but water play and oral play and it doesn't even get in the way for oral play, it just doesn't enhance the experience like a better flavored lube. For water play we go with a silicone lube like Eros Original Bodyglide.

SYLK is the best lube in the world, nontoxic silicone safe, and lasts FOREVER.

too bad eden doesn't carry it.

I swear by pink water, but actually I have become quite fond of California Exotic's Premium lubre. But I think that has glycerin/parbens in it. I don't have the bottle with me to check. But for the price Premium Lube is AMAZING!

I love Bodyfluid, which is silicone based. When I need a water based lube, I usually just pick whichever one I pull out first.

We usually don't need it, but I like the water-based lubes best in general.

Sliquid H20 Ride is my go to lube because it work well in any application. Non-irritating thick and water based. Although I find Maximus is a bit thicker and perfumes a bit better.

That's the reason I never tried Maximus, despite the good reviews.

We used to use Astroglide, before I realized what a chemical dump it was, and that it was causing some health issues for both of us.

I'm surprised only namelesschaos and I prefer Sliquid Ride H2O as our favorite. It only has 4 ingredients, no "nasties" and it lasts a long time.

I'd love to see some of these lubes in samples, so people can try them without putting out 12 to 25 bucks for something that may not suit them.

I think that would be a good seller. A Sample Pack of 5 to 12 lubes, enough for two or three tries for each one, so people could try them.

For me Maximus is all I have been using. Anal lube from Cal Exotics works good too, but I like the pump top. It does not agree with the wife though, so it is all mine.

Most of the time the wife does not need lube but when she does we use Probe thick and rich. It does dry up at times but a little water/spit fixes that.

We have also use Better Sex Essentials Silicone a time or two for PIV and it works good and it did not bother her at all. We just tried JO Premium (silicone) and it has given her some problems, not sure if it is a UTI or just a rash or something.

I use the Better Sex Essentials for bath/shower fun but I only use glass and stainless toys for that. Tried a few times with a condom on silicone toys but it did not seem to work very good.

For a while, I was all about Maximus. But having Better Sex Essentials Silicone Lubricant means that I bounce between the two.

I really like the Better Sex because it's got a good consistency and never irritates me. However, for silicone toys and for anal, I stick with Maximus.

Now that I'm reading about these others, though, I'm considering trying a few new ones.

The parabens in the Maximus probably bother her. Cal Exotics Anal Lube has glycerin and parabens, so that's probably why that one bothers her.

Really, try the Sliquid H2O Ride. It works for PIV (on the rare occasion that we need it for that) anal, toys and it has no glycerin or parabens, so your wife will probably be cool with it.



I have too many silicone toys to even have silicone lube in the house. Plus, I hate having to shower or bathe after nighttime sex, so, we don't use it ourselves.

We like playing with a lot, but the maximus has a permanent position by the bed. Love the pump dispenser!

I really love Pjur's silicone lube.

I love it bcs I can grab it, bring it into the shower for those sweet wet quickies. But I also love it bcs it is thin and feels more natural to me than some waterbased lube I have tried.

I am on the hunt for better lube all the time, and we are desperate right now! I apparently am, all the sudden, sensitive to Maximus, which has always been our go to vaginal sex lube. Unfortunately, I can't even use it anally because it burns bad! That really sucks, since I have a whole unopened bottle. At P'Gell's suggestion, I went looking for Sliquid's H2O Ride at the local sex shop, they unfortunately did not have Ride, but they have the H2O.

Should I try the H2O instead or should I wait and just order the Ride H2O from Eden? Have you tried the other one?

For anal, we use Gun Oil Silicone. Seems to work best for us thus far. My body seems just fine with things for awhile and then all the sudden, WHAMMO! and I can never use whatever again without more, WHAMMO! Not good.

Suggestions are greatly appreciated.
