Wow thanks for this post!!! I had tried googling it and wasn't able to find too much. Some people recommended Ky 2-in-1 massage and lube but I think it's gone off the market. I mentioned oil but I am definitely willing to try silicone based products as well. Since you seem to know a ton about the subject, do you happen to know of any good silicone based products? Thanks again!
@ AriaRNSure I do! Any silicone lube that has the ingredient dimethicone either as the first or near the top of the ingredient list is a more premium lube due to that ingredient being more expensive to use, lol. Anyway, some people noticed that dimethicone didn't have enough of the slip or it became too sticky for their tastes in a lube, so the chemists started playing around and trying different silicones such as dimethiconol, cyclopentasiloxane, cyclotetrasiloxane , et al. There is a product specifically for body massage buy Pjur called Bodyglide
and also Light Bodyglide
which are perfect for both uses and a quality company, if somewhat expensive (use Eden sales like the whole site one going on now with the BLOOMxx code of choice)!
Check out here
for more lube info and choose the silicone category for the types on this site. But I will say, for massage, pretty much any cheapo silicone lube would be fine. Start with a small size, see how you like it and experiment. You can always use a different one for the sex stuff and then a more expensive one that meets those particular needs would be more feasible. this
are the ones that I would try myself due to the safety of the ingredients and the larger sizes for less money (always check the size when price checking, lol). I particularly prefer a thicker silicone lube for sex play as it doesn't run all over like regular which is something that would
help with massage. I tried the JO brand of thicker anal lube and found it barely thicker in my personal estimation, so I would try Jack Aide thick gel
or another brand if you want to try a thicker silicone lube that doesn't get all runny on your bits and stays in place better.
WARNING about using silicone lubes:
Be very careful, this stuff gets everywhere. When you open, be very slow about tipping it as it runs out like mineral oil or water! But the most annoying thing about it is that it gets on the damn bottle no matter how careful you are, lol! I recommend you have some paper towels under the bottle even if you think you are careful (trust me!
) Silicone lube is the only lube (besides coconut oil) that has never irritated me. The only reason I don't usually use it is because I have silicone toys that it can damage and because it doesn't provide enough cushion feeling to me when I use it. I know that sounds odd, but is the best way I can explain it and I have not yet found a thick version that is thick enough for me (have only tried the JO anal and some other brands not on Eden, but never tried the Jack Aide one I linked to above) I prefer water-based lubes or hybrid ones because they feel more like my natural lubrication and they just feel more cushiony, not too thin. ALSO: silicone lube doesn't taste good, not awful, just not like you want a mouthful of it, though it's completely benign if you have no other ingredients added to it. It tastes like nothing, just an oily taste to me (your mileage may vary, which may depend on the brand).
(My favorite brand, period, for any type of lube is Sliquid
, which for some reason, is no longer in stock here at Eden. However, it used to be and if you search for their name and then click the reviews tab when you see "Search results for Sliquid" (right under it, you will notice tabs and click the reviews or discussions tab and see all the info on them) here
for example. The Sliquid Silver
is a great silicone product and their hybrid lube, Silk
, is water-based with a little silicone added to give the best of both worlds.)
I hoped this helped!
