Wet, But At What Cost?

Okay for a beginner on a budget, but definitely not something you should rely on regularly. Beware of dangerous ingredients and the messy aftermath of this product.

Back before I was an enlightened sex educator, this was my lubrication of choice. From a price and availability standpoint, this is really the best you can get it. It's very cheap in a larger size and it can be found at most of your local drug stores and supermarkets.

It was great as a lubricant for beginners. This stuff is very, very wet. Its texture is much like water. It isn't sticky and feels very silky when rubbed in. This is the lightest water-based lubricant that I have found to date. It doesn't taste bad. It is actually a little sweet. There should not be problems going down on someone who has just used this for another kind of play. However, it does smell unnatural.

Wet Light, as with all water based lubricants, is also very versatile. It can be used with condoms for all sorts of penetrative sex, with your sex toys, and for masturbation. The one major caveat here is that it just won't work in the shower, pool, hot tub, or other wet environments. The water just cancels out the lubrication.

When you apply it, it should be slathered on the shaft of a penis or a sex toy. However, this brings us to some big issues about this product. It is incredibly messy. First, when you try to get the lube out of the flip cap, it is hard to control exactly how much you get. It pours out and sometimes you have to really squeeze the tube to try to get it. Then, once you have the lube on and start penetrating, the mess becomes an issue again. I found Wet Light to be very drippy. It left me feeling uncomfortable after it dripped all over my partner's and my own genitals.

Although it is often over applied and drippy, it still tends to dry out quickly. This is a common characteristic of water-based lubricants, but I found it to be more true with this one than others that I have tried. This is because water is a primary ingredient of them. Since the body loves water so much, it literally sucks it up, leaving a vagina or anus dry. This can lead to ripping, tearing, pain, and all things you are likely using lube to try to avoid. Often, Wet Light needs to be reapplied during play to avoid this, since it does tend to dry out.

Once play is finished, I am usually left feeling quite uncomfortable and needing to wipe any excess lube off immediately. When left on the skin around the genitals it starts to dry and the texture becomes unbearable. It leaves a layer of stickiness on your body. This isn't something you can use quickly and then just get up and go. Make sure you have time to stop in a bathroom and wipe it off.

It is also important to beware of the ingredients in this product. First, there is aloe vera leaf juice. Although this ingredient is natural, I still caution against it, since it may throw off your body's natural pH levels. That could lead to a nasty infection of the vagina or urethra. Glycerin is also listed as an ingredient. This is in a lot of lubricants and its very important to try to find one without it. Glycerin has sugar in it, which may cause a yeast infection, especially for someone whose body is prone to them. Lastly, there are parabens in this lube. Parabens are linked to all sorts of cancers, especially those related to the reproductive system.
Follow-up commentary
I can't get past the ingredients/toxins in this to use it again. I have permanently retired the Wet Light and switch over to Sliquid Silk which I found to be a much better lubrication with more agreeable ingredients.

    Welcome to Eden!

    With a two-star rating, I wanted to know more about what made this specific lubricant as bad of an experience as it was for you.

    Hi Kkay!!

    I gave this two stars because the ingredients in it really are not safe and there is no way you can change that. The glycerin, aloe, and parabens are all big no-no's in products, especially for the health conscious. Something with both glycerin and aloe in it can majority mess up the gentle balance of pH in the vagina and lead to a yeast infection. For those prone to them, this is definitely something not to even try.

    On top of all this, the lube itself was below average. It dried out much more quickly than a lube should, even it if is water based. After play, globs of it end up places I just don't want since it was overly drippy and it dries into a sticky mess and must be wiped off.

    It is definitely not something I would recommend anyone get. I co-run a sexual health campus that sells this lube and we are pulling it off of our own shelves for these reasons.
