Lubricant by K-Y Brand

Bog Standard

This lube is a good one to have on hand as a back up or for simple nights. It's compatible with all toys and is cheap, clean, and easy to use. You really can't go wrong with it and you will use it, it's just not that exciting of a product.

KY Jelly is probably the lube that everyone starts out with mainly because you can get it from most drug stores, it is affordable, and the brand is well known. We have used this lube on many occasions and it does the trick...just fine. It is not a fancy specialty lube, it is one of the basics! Don't expect anything mind-blowing, over-the-top orgasms. It is a lube, not a toy.

While it is a fine lube for everyday applications, it is probably not the best for large insertions or extended play sessions. After a short while, it will become sticky and can clump when used in the vagina. I have used this lube for fisting when caught in a pinch, and numerous reapplications were very necessary throughout the session. I do find that it doesn't mix well with natural lubrication and can cause weird clumps when you pull toys or fingers out. It doesn't cause discomfort or anything, but it is a little gross sometimes.

This product does have a bad taste to it, so I would not recommend having oral sex in conjunction with this lube. It is not enough for me to refuse my girlfriend's requests though, it is simply not the best taste. A bit bitter. There is also a slight chemically, glycerin-like smell to the product, but nothing overbearing.

The product comes in a squeeze bottle, which is fine, but it would be handy in a pump bottle. With how often reapplications are necessary, single hand usage would be nice.

Because this lube needs frequent reapplications, expect to go through a bottle faster than you would of a higher end smaller bottle. We have been known to go through a quarter of a bottle on a little better than average night.

Because KY is water-based, it is safe for use with all toys and cleans up easily. It will not stain sheets or clothing and will wipe clean from harnesses.
Follow-up commentary
While this is probably the most unexciting lube on the market, it is reliable, and of decent quality. I've been experimenting with numerous lubes lately, and in my opinion this one is one of the better ones, especially for the price.
