Don't know for sure about opened but my Maximus says "best if use before 2015" My Wet Platinum says 2014.

I don't know if they all have expiration dates on the bottles, but I would say they tend to expire eventually anyway. I've had a few lubes that I didn't use but forgot to throw out for a long time that went all icky on me. They got thick or yellow or kinda dried out.

I think it does in the since of it becomes less potent after a long time.

Yep, they do. I wouldn't use it past it's date, never know what might be growing in it.

Some have expiration dates on the bottle. If it doesn't then I would say it's probably fine to use as long as you don't notice any changes in texture, colour, smell etc.

I just recently got a lube and it says expiry date 2012. So I guess most of them do but we don't really notice. I wodner what the average time of use is optimal for a lube. I wonder what 50 year old lube looks like...sorry, tired.

They'll normally say somewhere on the bottle/package if they do.

Absolutely. Almost every lube I have gotten has an expiration date. If a lube does not have one I would stop using it after 18 months or if you notice a change in smell, consistency, and or color

Some of my lube has had an expiration date. If it does, it will be located on the bottle.

I didn't know it did, but it makes sense I guess.

It might but it takes a while. I have a lube that tastes nasty so I use for personal use and its 2 years old and still looks the same as when I bought it.

I think the only lube I have that doesn't have an exp date is powdered lube.... But of course after mixing don't save it for more than 24 hours since it has no preservatives.

I had a bottle of Sliquid go bad on me. There was just a tiny bit left, so I set is aside and promptly forgot all about it, only to find it months later with mold or something growing in it.

I just looked at my Aqua bottle and it has a "good for 12 months after opening" symbol on it.

Yep. This one. I don't think I've ever owned a bottle that didn't have an expiration date. The dates are usually at least 4 years in the future. Flavored lubricants tend to have a shorter lifespan.

There is a theoretical expiration date for lubes, because some of them may get things growing in them or react with the air (mostly water and oil-based, respectively). It's not hard-and-fast, but if you're using a lube after the date you'll want to check it out (smell, feel, look) before using it on potentially delicate areas of your body. AFAIK silicone lube is pretty indestructible.

I just looked at a couple of my bottles of lube, and they're dated 08/2012 and 11/2012. Still, if you open the tube and it looks/smells funny, then use your own discretion and common sense.
