Tasty? Not So Much.

If the strawberry flavor was your personal selling point in buying this lube, I would not recommend it. However, if you're able to disregard that and just want a regular, slick lube, it more than does the job. I'm not a fan of it as a flavored lube, but I do admit that for general purpose, this is a lovely little lube. Plus it has a bonus of a nice smell!
Bad taste
Doesn't last particularly long

This is Better Sex Essentials' Strawberry Flavored Lubricant. It can be used in the bedroom for many purposes. Personally, I don't use lubricant during sex, but this lubricant can definitely be used for this purpose. It can be used for oral, anal and vaginal intercourse. I used it for toy play, specifically for clitoral lubrication. I don't recommend using it as a substitute for a massage lotion or anything similar, as it is far too short-lasting for such a use, but covering a bit of body area with this lubricant and licking it off may not go amiss!

Texture / Consistency / Thickness / Viscosity

Better Sex Essentials' Strawberry Lubricant is water-based and therefore can be used with pretty much any toy. This is a fantastic bonus if you use silicone toys, as it is good to use with them. I found it's easy to squeeze the lubricant out of its bottle; so easy, in fact, that I suggest being gentle with it! My last lube was in a stronger container and definitely didn't give as quickly to pressure, so I ended up with a bit too much!

This lubricant leaves you feeling naturally wet and blissfully non-oily. As mentioned above, it is a rather thin lube, so you may find yourself using it a bit more often, if you're more accustomed to thick lubricants.

Taste / Aroma

The smell of the Better Sex Essentials lubricant is fantastic. If you simply open the bottle and whiff, it smells exactly like strawberry fruit rolls! I actually got a bit excited and hopeful that the taste was the same as the smell, but sadly this is not true.

I taste-tested this strawberry lubricant without my partner and found it to be a bit like lightly flavored strawberry cough syrup. I suppose, in the heat of the moment, it may be a bit more appealing, but from a casual observer, it's not that great of a flavor. Also, the lubricant does leave a bit of an oily aftertaste, which is unpleasant on its own. The aftertaste will definitely be a deterrent for me, in regards to using it orally.
    • Bad taste
    • Smells good


I have not used this lubricant sexually, but I have used it in solo play with toys. I've found that it does not last as long as my previous lubricants, but it is still a perfectly good toy lube. I used a few small drops of this lubricant and did not have to reapply. However, I found that it was a perfect amount for a few minutes of use.

While I don't use lubricants sexually, I assume that if I were that I would need more lubricant than the above, as sex tends to last much longer (and involve more friction) than solo play.

After use I found there was no oily texture left behind, so clean up is not a hassle at all. There is no excess clean up involved so Better Sex Essentials wins my vote for a low maintenance lubricant.
    • Absorbs into skin nicely
    • Feels natural


The Better Sex Essentials strawberry lubricant is in a 4fl oz. bottle and clearly states its function on the front. The bottle clearly states both "Sex" and "Lubricant" on the front, so I don't recommend storing this out in the open. On the back is a list of directions, ingredients and warnings (sorry sexually open beholders everywhere, it says "avoid contact with eyes").

A closer look at the ingredients and notes on the back of the bottle might point out why the flavor was a bit bland with a "No artificial sweeteners" message. The packaging is recyclable and states that no animals were tested on in the creation of this product.

The cap is made of hard plastic and requires a single push to reveal the spout. Press on the spout to close the bottle and make sure you don't store it anywhere that it might rattle around and open itself! A toy box full of lubricant is no one's idea of a good time.
    • Can be opened with one hand
