Like slipping down the well...

This is a great lube for vaginal penetrative sex, foreplay and male/female masturbation. We can not comment on its appropriateness for anal as we have not gone there (yet!). We love this lube and look forward to EdenFantasys carrying it (hint, hint...).

Use

Fusion Original Bodyglide by B. Cumming Company (yes, that really is the name of the company!)is a personal lubricant. This can be used for intercourse, male or female masturbation and/or foreplay. Because it is a silicone lube, those with silicone allergies/sensitivities should avoid this product. You should not use this with any toys or condoms that contain silicone as it will cause a chemical reaction that will break down the molecules that bond to form the silicone ingredients.

A little about the main ingredients: cyclopentasilonxane and dimethicone. Having studied chemisty a billion light years ago, I did what any scholar would do--I looked these ingredients up on the internet!! Silica is a naturally occuring substance that forms the base for silicone. The silica is combined with organic ingredients (oxygen, hydrogen, carbon)to form silicone. When further combined, silicone based polymers, via a chemical reaction, are formed.

I have an explanation that I have been using since chem class to explain the difference between a simple mixture and a chemical reaction. Let's say I have a half cup of red sugar, a half cup of blue salt, a cup of coffee and a half cup of milk (the amounts are not important). If I mix the sugar and salt in a bowl, I still have sugar and salt. They did not bind to form a new substance and I can easily separate the blue crystals of salt from the red sugar. BUT, if I pour the milk into the cup of coffe, both ingredients are bound together and form a new substance. I can not easily separate the milk from the coffee because a new liquid has been created. That is how the silica combines with various ingredients to form a large variety of silicone items.

This is one of the best silicone lubes we have used. The dimethicone is used as a skin protectant (which when used as a skin lotion, or personal lubricant, acts as a sealant to prevent loss of the body's natural moisture). It is fairly safe to use and it is a major ingredient in hand lotion and baby moisturizers. Nothing is a 100% sure thing and side effects include itching and burning. Also, if you find that a product containing demethicone (or other silicone based products) drys rather than lubricates, this is a sign of an allergic reaction and not a failure of the item to moisturize. Hives, breathing problems and any swelling are signs of a serious allergic reaction and require immediate medical attention. Silicone based lubricants (and other silicone products such as skin moisturizers and some hair products) are NOT recommended for pregnant or nursing women. The cyclopentasiloxane is popular as a lubricant ingredient and waterproofing agent which also seals in your body's natural moisture (which, by the way, is how all skin conditioners work--they do not "add" to your skin, but "prevent" you from losing natural moisture). Petroleum jelly is one of the most effective methods of having baby soft hands and feet, but is not recommended as an intimate personal lubricant. The combination of the dimethicone and cyclopentasiloxane prevents either or both of the ingredients from evaporating. You should take special care to check that the cap is screwed on tightly to help this along.

CAVEAT: My intention with all that techinical information is not to scare the heeby jeebies out of anyone, but to help you understand how these things function. They sound scarier than they are (unless you are the person who DOES have a serious reaction, then they don't sound scary enough). When a person is having surgery a consent form is signed. The procedure, along with potential benefits and possible problems, is carefully explained by the doctors and nurses involved. Hidden in the list of possible problems is always a reference to death. Does that mean we expect the patient to die? Probably not, or the patient would not be on the schedule. But the patient, like the consumer of personal lubricants, is entitled to know the ups and downs of the procedure. What I have written here applies to all silicone based products.

Texture / Consistency / Thickness / Viscosity

I would place this lube at the thinner end of the spectrum, not watery, but not very thick--about the viscosity of a massage oil. It has a very nice, smooth, silky feel to it--when I first rubbed it between my finger, I could tell it would be nice and slippery--a quality we want for sexual encounters or masturbation. Men in particular need to take special care when stroking the shaft of the penis to prevent chaffing.

A little bit goes on and on for a long time. We applied it to my vagina and my husband's penis before foreplay and it lasted through intercourse and the finale. We used it together on 3 occasions and each time we were very satisfied with the results. There was no friction and with deep vaginal penetration neither of us felt any rubbing, discomfort or interference, indicating that we needed a booster of the Fusion Bodyglide lubricant. I am sure you all know the ins and outs of how that went(JOKE!!).

The pump dispenser is a nice feature. If you did need an additional amount it would not be awkward to reach over with only one hand and apply more. There would be no need to stop the intimacy. If you tip it over, it is unlikely to leak.
    • Slick
    • Smooth
    • Thin

Taste / Aroma

There is no odor or taste to this vegan lubricant. It is nice to see more and more companies supplying environmental/animal friendly products. It is safe for oral/genital sex, but again, if you have a sensitivity/allergy to silicone, do not use it for oral. A serious allergic reaction could occur.
    • No smell
    • No taste

Performance

This lube is just so great. First, it works well as a lubricant. Second, it lasted through a long sexual encounter. Third, it was well absorbed by the vagina and penis and left no film or flakiness behind like some other lubes (especially water based) have done. Neither of us felt the need to run to the sink and clean up. There were no tell tale crumbs from dried up lube in the bed either. Both of us loved everything about this product.
    • Absorbs into skin nicely
    • Allergy concerns
    • Long lasting

Packaging

The lube comes in a 4 oz pump style bottle. The bottle is black with the word "fusion" in large vertical letters. It also tells the consumer it is a silicone product and "super concentrated". It says that it is useful as a moisturizer and personal lubricant. There are some small horizontal raised stripes so that if you get some of the lube on the outside of the bottle, it is easy to grasp. It is discreet, except to the well informed (think EdenFantasys' clients). It will not make it through TSA at the airport--the cut off is 3 ounces and this bottle contains 4 ounces. It is travel friendly but will need to be placed in your checked baggage...or just pick up a lubricant at your desination.
    • Can be opened with one hand
    • Does not leak
    • Easy to use / dispense

Special Features

Neither of us felt any of the listed side effects of silicone ingredients. It felt very natural, none of it dripped out of place, which often happens to us with thinner lubes. It is clear, odorless and tasteless. It is stated to be a natural, vegan lubrication. It just felt good--what can I say?

Personal comments

This is our newest favorite lube. It is however not available through EdenFantasys at this time. I am hoping that they will be carrying it before we run out--which won't be for awhile since a little goes a long way. I also can not comment on cost effectiveness because no price is listed.

Experience

We were a bit hesitant about yet ANOTHER silicone lube. We were thinking, "How different can this be from all the others?". We were pleasantly surprised to see (that in our opinion) this is beyond what we have experienced with other silicone lubricants. Neither of us can come up with anything we didn't like. Well, maybe they can color the bottle prettier than plain black when they run the next batch. Otherwise...bring it on!!!
Follow-up commentary
We still love this lube. I hope EF gets some in so we can buy it when we run out. A little lasts and lasts and lasts!! Thanks EF for sending it to us to test.
