An absolute dream
This lube has a feel like no other. The thick consistency keeps it in place without ever becoming sticky. I couldn't imagine participating in anal play without it ever again.

An all-purpose slick godsend
Maximus is a great lube for any toy and for anyone. I have yet to find a problem with this lubricant, and I will certainly reorder when it runs out. I've used it with multiple materials so far with great success, and I do not need to constantly reapply it due to its consistency.

If you need a lube that will get the job done then this will work. If you're looking for something long lasting this isn't the place to look.

Pushed To The Max
Maximus comes in a pretty big bottle, and is thick enough to be used for anal play. It absorbs into the skin without leaving a weird residue, and lasts forever!

Didn't Live Up to the Hype
Maximus lived up to it's thickness claims, but unfortunately it's much too thick for us. In fact, it actually slows things down rather than make it easier. It can get a little stick and leaves us wanting to wash it off quickly. I think this is a characteristic of a lube this thick, so I'm not sure if it's just due to our preference. The bottle is generous at 8.25 ounces and he pump top is awesome in itself.
Very thick (pro for some)
Too thick to perform well for us

It will get you in
This stuff will for sure get the parts working together like you want them, and will last a fairly long time. For a water-based lube, it is by far the best I have used so far.
The lube is on the thicker side which makes it much easier to apply and makes mess much less likely
For the female, there are time that it can cause some burning sensation.

Maximus = Maximum Pleasure!
Maximus is a fantastic lubricant if you're looking for an almost all-in-one product. While it isn't great for oral and simply washes off in the shower, the variety of uses are amazing! This is one to go on the nightstand since it can be used for masturbation, vaginal sex, anal play, and is compatible with all toy material types. This long lasting, thick lubricant is sure to impress, no matter how you're using it!

If you have a lot of toys and are looking for a good anal lube, this will be a pretty good option for you. If you are looking for more of a multipurpose lubricant, I'd probably direct you towards something a little thinner and more versatile.

Slip and Slide Fun
To sum it up, this product is great for all kinds of fun whether it's toy play, anal play, or good old fashioned hand jobs and intercourse. You will not be disappointed. Stay away from that sticky overpriced wannabe and go for an excellent quality lube to heighten all your pleasures and desires.
Water-based which works well with most toys. Not sticky and is great for anal play.
It is extremely thick and hard to squeeze out, so purchase it in a pump dispenser.

Smooth like silk!
I strongly recommend this lube for all the anal lovers. It's smooth, it's thick, it has no smell and it will not irritate you.
One of the best anal lubricants on the market!
It's just perfect, nothing needs to be improved. Maybe they could make it edible?

Solo or together, this lube rocks
This is one of the best lubes I've tried. The girlfriend agrees that it enhances pleasure for those times where we just want to get it on and need a quick fix without foreplay. Absolutely incredible lifetime during teasing sessions, masturbation, insertion of large objects, or "vigorous" play.
great lifetime, never irritating, remains clear over time while stored, no permanent stains

A Thousand Times, Yes!
GREAT lube! Will definitely buy again - it is my all time go-to product from now on! Great for vaginal, anal, masturbation, toys & condoms. No smell to speak of, thick without being sticky and a bottle will last you FOREVER! Only down side is a somewhat unpleasant taste, so no oral after use.
Thick, no smell, great bottle, good for my sensitive skin, a little goes a long way

Best water based for anal.
This is a fabulous go to lube for any situation. However, the residue and burning issues should be thought of before purchase. If you tend to have reactions to some toys or products, this may not be for you. If not, then this may be perfect.

This lube is amazing and feels totally natural! Is is a total bargain since it's not expensive and you get quite a bit in the bottle. However, this product does contain parabens, so if you are concerned about them, this product may not be for you!

Fantastic Lube... best I've ever used!
It's an awesome buy at less than $20. It really is the best lube for pegging, in my opinion, since it's thick, lasts a long time, and it stays on the toy nicely. It works equally well for vaginal penetration (and I would imagine anal, although I have yet to try it with that). Since it's odorless and tasteless, it's not a tragedy if it ends up in your mouth. It washes off nicely, and it doesn't stain. It also comes in a convenient pump bottle.
Thick and easy to apply, odorless and tasteless, long lasting

What More Can Be Said About Maximus?
There's not much more that can be said about Maximus lubricant that hasn't already been said before in previous reviews. It's a great, multipurpose lube. It seems to work best in combination with a little natural moisture, but holds up perfectly well when used for anal due to its thicker consistency. Maximus is long lasting and most importantly, leaves no sticky residue behind!
No sticky residue leftover
Easy to dispense
Little goes a long way
Can be unpleasant to the taste
Not travel friendly

Great Product in Need of Better Container
For the price, this product is a great buy--definitely better than some other water-based lubes with a natural feel. It's easy use and provides easy glide.

I would definitely recommend this lube for anal play if the allergens in it don't affect you. I can honestly say I think it would make a great vaginal lube as well although I haven't used it in this manner yet.

While the Maximus lubricant has proved wonderful for many users, it just didn't work out for me. I found that the lubricant was thick almost to a level of grossness and dried up just a little too quickly for my tastes. I would still say it's worth a try for most, but in the end, this was not the lube for me.

My lube search lead me to Maximus and the name is fitting.
I can't find anything to complain about Maximus. It delivers everything it has promised and comes in a great bottle with pump dispenser to boot, which gives it bonus points, so I am giving it a 5. It is a thicker lube that is ideal for anal, vaginal penetration, masturbation or toys.

The Burn Says It's Working!
Having worked our way through many of the water-based lubes offered here on EF, we were excited to finally buy a bottle of Maximus. If it suits your body then it could well be the last of this type of lube you'll ever need. But keep a cold washcloth ready just in case you and it don't agree with each other...

An Amazing and Convenient Water Based Lubricant
Maximus is an incredible water based lube that is a bang for your buck (pun intended). It lasts a long time, and also blends into the skin nicely afterwards. This lube is the greatest water based lubricant on the market in my opinion. And it will work well for everyone who is looking for a lube that covers all the bases, if you know what I mean. I would recommend this lubricant to everyone!
No Smell, Lasts a Long Time, Price, Amount in Bottle, Blends into Skin Extremely Well

Maximus: my go-to lube
After many attempts trying to find the "perfect" lube, this one is the closest it has come for me. Water-based and long-lasting, I'm able to use it with all toys and for any sexy session we're in the mood for. It has such an amazingly smooth and silky texture, as well as being non-sticky. This has become a favourite in the bedroom (and repurchased).

Maximus is my newest lube experiment. I want to keep trying new water based lubes and see which ones I will end u liking the best. This one is definitely on the list!! I love its ability to stay in place, add to your natural lube and lack of stickiness. Reapplying is minimal and the effects are long lasting--this is going to be a hard one to beat....

Leaves a coating, or heavy feeling on your skin after a few reapplications.

A solid, basic lube.
If you are looking for a good lubricant that does the job, you've found it. Maximus is quite a bit thicker than other basic lubes. Therefore, it is a great option for someone looking into a heavier all purpose lube.
An all purpose ubricant, doesn't dry quickly, glycerin free, thick, easy clean up, and no smell.

I recently just ran out of this lubricant and in the short period I've been out of it, I've realized how much I preferred it over every other lube I have. I love Maximus for so many reasons. It doesn't irritate my skin (although it does have parabens which can cause allergic reactions so be wary), it's water-based, it isn't sticky but it still has a nice thick consistency, and it's the one thing that made anal bearable and then enjoyable.

Slide Your Way, Right into My Maximus!
Maximus is definitely a top-notch water-based lube! It's long-lasting, silky, smooth, and won't leave you greasy, oily, sticky, or "dried out." It's great for both men and women, and can be used during PIV sex, anal sex, masturbation, and with most toys.
Water-based, long lasting, no scent/flavor, good for anal, PIV, masturbation, and toy safe.

Maximus is the one.
For this product I am able to look past the parabens. It literally never dries out on me, and I find myself having to wipe it all off when I'm done because it's still wet! Ready for more! It's Bio-static to prevent infections and spreading of bacteria. What more could you want? If only it came in gallons... But, hey! It's still a pretty big bottle!

Way Better Than Astroglide!
As someone who benefits from a little lube whether engaging in couples or solo play, this is my go-to product. It's a little thicker and sticks where you put it and it lasts longer without needing another application. A useful water based lubricant that's worth trying.
-Good for different *activities*
-Huge bottle! Why not offer different sizes?

Maximus Your Pleasure
From my first experimentations with anal play to the present, I have always preferred Maximus. While the up front cost initially seemed high, I have found it to be well worth it. While exploring such a sensitive area, you want your/your partner's mind to be at ease, and with Maximus, it can be. Not having to frequently reapply it allows you to stay in the moment, which is exactly where you want to be.
Thick, stays in place, can be used with silicone toys.
A bit sticky.

Miss Nessa has found a new favorite.
Although the Maximus lube is on the pricier side this lube is well worth every dime. Maximus lube is thick, rich and luxurious. This lube is perfect for everyone and everything. It doesn't matter if you’re using it for vaginal play, or serious anal play. You don't have to worry about reapplying this lube. You'll only need to try this lube once and you will fall in love with it too.

This item is totally worth the money if this is what you are looking for. Make sure your only requirements are a water-based, not sticky or tacky lube that will last for a while. If you are looking for something with a great smell, this product isn't for you because it has very little smell. If you want a great tasting or even palatable lube, then this product is not what you are looking for.
Very slick, not tacky, rubs into skin well after use.
Requires reapplication during use, and tastes horrible!
Published:May 08, 2012
We really enjoyed this lube, especially for anal play. Not having to stop anal sex and reapply lube was a huge win for us, and the fact that the lube didn't get sticky or dry out was a plus. We didn't use the lube for vaginal sex, but have used it with toy play and anal play. Love the pump bottle, and the only con we found was that it doesn't taste as "good" as some other lubes we've tried.

Maximus is really the best all around lube you can get your hands on. It has no annoying smells or tastes and it wont dry up prematurely. It also does not get sticky after usage.

If could only be a better product if it was slightly cheaper and easier on people with sensitive skin. We highly recommend Maximus lube!

"Maximus" Means "Greatest"!
Maximus is one of the best water-based lubricants when it comes to anal, penile masturbation, and other dry sexual activities. It's thick, long-lasting, and it stays in place. It doesn't have any glycerin in it but it is loaded with parabens so people who are allergic to them should steer clear of this lubricant. For those of you who aren't, though, this is a lubricant worth buying. It's great for most anything, even if it does feel a little weird when used vaginally. I definitely recommend it.

One of The Thickest Lubes That You Can Buy
Maximus has earned a reputation as one of the best lubes out there - and for good reason. As a water-based lube it won't degrade silicone products but it is as thick and long lasting as most silicone based lubes. The pump top nozzle still works great for getting it out of the bottle. Although it's not flavored or scented, it doesn't have a bad smell. However, some people may find that they have an adverse reaction to the paraben chemicals.

If you're alone or with your partner it is a good choice. However, just for everyone to know. It does have parabens.

Great for anal sex. Lasts a long long time!
Works so well that it can be hard to get it off your hands during sex. But well worth it!

Maximus - Maximum Quality
This is an awesome lubricant. I have seriously purchased 3 more bottles just to keep them around, but I doubt I will run out any time soon. I will probably end up giving one or two bottles away as a gift. This is great for women prone to yeast infections or UTI's and I wish I had known about this stuff sooner! Perfect for everyone!
Bio-Static, Thick, Lasts long, Absorbs well
Moderately bitter taste

Maximize Your Pleasure
Maximus is a great, long-lasting, glycerine free, water based lube that I highly recommend to everyone. It has parabens so I would avoid this if you think it might be a problem. It is nice and thick and doesn't need to be reapplied which makes this a great alternative to silicone lubes. It has a nice smooth glide to it and doesn't become sticky, tacky, or stringy.
Long-Lasting, No oder, Not Sticky
Bad Taste, May Leak, Contains parabens

Let's MAX it out!!!
You want the best in which less is more? Then the Max is what you need. Given that the taste ain't the greatest, trust that it won't let you down in any play you got. Play and it'll play even harder, so who's up for a little game play??!?
Water based, pump top, lasts long and yet thick an quite silky feel..
Has a bitter taste to it
Published:May 14, 2011
Finally, I try living to the Max too!!!!
Don't let the bad taste of the Maximus deter you from purchasing this product. It is so easy to dispense the lube and it is so effective at doing what it must do. If I had to choose one waterbased lube for the rest of my life it would have to be the maximus. It is good all around for both anal and vaginal and it is safe with all toys. Again, I don't know why I waited so long to try it!
Thick, lasts a longer time compared to similar products, stays put

An Ode to Maximus
If you're looking for an anal lube that will work in a lot of different situations, buy Maximus. I haven't found anything better for it. If you're looking for a general purpose lube, or for something for a more specific kind of experience, you might shop around, but Maximus is a great place to start.
Safe with most materials, doesn't smell, doesn't turn sticky, lasts a long, long time
Does contain parabens. Doesn't taste awesome.

Maximus, I will have no other
Maximus is, hands down, the best lube I have ever tried (out of about a dozen!). It satisfies everything I want from a lube, especially the complete lack of stickiness! It's also long lasting, perfectly thick, exceptionally slippery, and never stains.
Long lasting, doesn't get sticky, smooth, slippery, thick, odorless, doesn't stain, easy-pump bottle

Maximus~Love You To The Max
I love this water based lubricant. It's thick, slippery, and smooth, and all without ever being greasy or sticky. Leave it on and let it soak into your skin or wash it off with a quick rinse; either way your clean up is fast and easy. The pump top makes for easy use!
Water based. Smooth. Slippery. Thick. Needs very little. Pump top bottle.

I love this stuff!
Maximus is versatile and can be used with all toy materials. It's also perfect for vaginal and anal sex. It feels very natural and is a breeze to clean up. All in all, it is the perfect lube, as far as I'm concerned. If you're allergic to parabens though, you might want to avoid this one.
Smooth, natural feeling, easy cleanup

Grind, baby grind
A pleasure to play with, easy to get just the right amount with the pump nozzle, and safe for use with any toys.

Doesn't dry up quickly.
Wish it came in flavors.

Meets all my lube needs without irritating or annoying me
Give it a try and see if it is for you. Find out if you can tolerate the taste. (I could) The feeling of the lube was natural and did not leave a feeling of sticky residue. It did not leave me running for the bathroom right after to wash it off.
Pump bottle. All purpose. Tolerable for oral after the fact.
No taste would be better, but that's asking a lot.

Maximus to the rescue! The lube that goes and goes.
Maximus is a top-notch lube for everything. It is smooth, not sticky, long lasting, and easy to clean up. If you are a beginner to anal, try this lube out. Maximus is one of the best lubes.
Not sticky, long lasting, great for anal
Doesn't taste great

Great potential for hand job
Maximus by itself is too slippery for masturbation. You can't get a good grip! However, mixing Maximus with Cetaphil moisturizing lotion changes the experience entirely, luxurious sensation! Works well in the shower.

Maximus is a great, glycerin free, water based lube that I recommend to everyone, except those who have reactions to parabens.

Amazing, and works for my sensitive skin!
This lube is flippin amazing, period. I would be happy if it simply didn't cause my skin to break out left and right! Not only does it pass that test with flying colors, but it provides as much long-lasting lubrication as I need AND is the perfect slippery texture for all kinds of fun. It gets super bonus points and cookies for not needing to be washed off.
Does not irritate sensitive skin, Fantastic lubrication, Long-lasting
Slight bitter taste

This is the best lube I've ever bought. It's comfortable, body- and toy-safe, and doesn't cost a whole lot to purchase. In summary, you get a whole lot of bang for your buck here.

Can't think of any honestly.

Maximus, To The Rescue!
Maximus has truly won me over. Like anyone, he has his downfalls- parabens, and a bitter taste- but since they don't affect me I can see past them. If you're looking for something sweet to lick off of your partner's body, you'll want to find another lube. But, if you want a lube that truly exceeds at any task aside from oral, look no further than Maximus.
Extremely long lasting. Thick but silky. Pump-top bottle. Water-based.
Contains parabens. Bitter taste.

Definitely a go-to lube.
This is a great versatile lube. I would recommend it for any kind of play that doesn't involve using your mouth.
Very clean, doesn't run, and is very long lasting.

Maximus Used to Maximum Capacity!
Maximus is a wonderful deal and a fantastic lubricant. It is not sticky. It lasts forever and is perfect for anal intercourse (as well as vaginal and masturbation). It's basic: clear, unscented and unflavored. And that is exactly why it is the most used item in my sex toy collection and lube collection as well. It was 100% worth the buy!
Slick, thick, easy pump top, great for all penetration, NOT STICKY or greasy feeling
Not great for oral

Best Feel Around
It's worth it because it lasts and doesn't make a huge mess while doing so. There isn't any weird after stickiness or greasiness. It makes the whole experience better when you don't have to worry about what the lube is going to do.
no smell, no aftertaste, no staining, easy clean up, easy to dispense, lasts a nice long time.
If you like to mask with flavor you won't find that with this lube.

Maximus - I Love You Man
This lube has become a favorite for anal sex. I am pleased it is water-based and my body has not had a negative reaction to this product. The thickness and durability is a must for butt play and the non-stickiness afterwards is much appreciated.
Water-based, thick, compatible for use with any toy/latex condoms and excellent for anal play.
This product does contain parabens which may not be suitable for everyone. Slight bitter taste.

The slippery stuff of the gods
Frustrations regarding sticky, dried-up lube and the need to reapply go out the window, and there is literally no need for clean-up. Extremely pleasant to the touch, smooth and comfortable: for a natural anal experience, one need look no further then Maximus.
Long-lasting, excellent applicator, disappears after use, no mess, anal-friendly, smooth texture.

Maximus, a little dab will do ya! This is a thick, slick and easy to dispense lube. It has a locking top and does not leak. It does not have a scent, but does leave a bitter aftertaste. Maximus works great for vaginal & anal sex use. It's also easy to clean off. Maximus is water-based which means that it is safe to use with all your toys and it's condom friendly. At an affordable price, this is now my go to lube!

Maximus is a sensual water based lubricant by Bodywise. It has a natural feel and is very similar to saliva. Maximus is a thicker, slick lubricant. A small amount works well for sex.

Taken to the Max!
Maximus has very quickly become my go-to lube. Because it is water based, I don't have to be careful as to what toys to use it with and can be washed off of skin, clothes, and most fabrics easily. It provides a great thick layer of slipperiness that I've never found in another lube without a runny consistency. Amazing for anal and great for any other kind of play you're into.
Thick, consistent, long lasting for water-based, no taste/odor.
Does eventually dry up and need re-application.
Published:June 11, 2010
Maximus looks like a sweet deal because it is made of highly purified water and helps cut down on infections. But reapplication is needed as it dries fast and becomes flaky. Maximus is not a great lubricant for use with sex toys, but may be alright for someone wanting slickness during intercourse.
L Arginine and Glycerin free, bio static, made of highly purified water.
Contains parabens, dries fast, becomes flaky, reapplication needed.

If you're looking for a basic, glycerin-free, water-based lube, Maximus will serve you well. It's excellent for vaginal sex and compatible with all toys. Plus you can make lots of silly jokes about the name.

Useless in water, tastes horrible.

One of the BEST!
The main selling point for me was the antibacterial properties of this product, this is a huge incentive. I'm not personally aware of any other product that has this feature. The con that I listed, although it might turn some people off it REALLY isn't that big of a deal. I felt that I needed to be critical though being that this is a review and it is tough to come up with a negative for this product.
Anti-bacteria, long lasting, clean appearance, convenient pump top.
Turns into a white foam.

After spending over a year looking for a good water based lube, I've found Maximus. I'm not going anywhere unless they come out with a Maximus II. There is a reason this lube has so many reviews, it rocks!
None (if you're not worried about Parabens)

This is THE BEST lubricant around.
I can easily say after trying various brands of lubricant, ranging from KY to Astroglide, that this is the best you can get. Thick enough for versatility and comes off very easy and clean. Good for vaginal sex, anal sex and playing with some toys. Great with a fleshlight. There is no smell to be weary of. Pump is a great addition, no more mess when reapplying. You will not be disappointed, and it will last you very long (8.5 oz is a good amount of lube for fun times to come). Try it!
Lasts long, thick enough for versatility, no smell, no stickiness.

Take it to the Max
Maximus is a very good lubricant but I feel it is a bit too thick for vaginal sex and playtime with toys, and my husband doesn't like it for masturbation. But it is perfect for anal. And for that reason alone, I will replace it when it runs out.
Large size, pump top, great for anal, decent price, water-based, glycerin free.
Too thick for most other types of sex play, bad taste, parabens.

Maximus- Or Minimal-us?
Maximus is a thick lubricant, and as far as my body is concerned, it is great for anal play but not so great for vaginal play. Nothing will ever beat natural lubricant of course, but this is a decent substitute. Maximus is not a wise choice for small storage spaces, since it's a pump top. There is no obnoxious scent, but there is a bitter taste. So be sure to wash any area coated in Maximus, before sticking a tongue there. Maximus is also rather pricey.
Worked great for anal play, doesn't stain or damage condoms or toys, easier to wash off.
Pricey, pump is bad for small storage, gummy when I used vaginally.

Maximus is the gold standard

This lube will not disappoint! It is a very slick, very smooth, very pleasing water-based lube, meant for use with toys and partners and is appropriate for vaginal and anal play. It is definitely a high quality lube that cannot be beat by any pharmacy brand lube available out there.

You Have Proven Your Valor Once Again, Maximus
Maximus is an absolutely wonderful lubricant. It is water-based which means that it is safe to use with all your toys, condoms, whatever. It is nice and thick which makes it great for anal sex. It lasts a long time and doesn’t get gummy. It just works for whatever you want it to do. The only drawback for me is it isn’t great to use in the shower. Now, put down that bottle of Astroglide and go get yourself some real lube – Maximus.

A thick gel lubricant that does exactly what it's suppose to do: reduce friction. And it does it for a such a long time that re-application will probably not be necessary.
