You didn't really have an "other", but my favorite is Wet Synergy which is a hybrid. I like the texture and staying power of silicone lubes though.

Water-based, since I don't have to worry about my silicone-based toys.

My favorite water based lube just turned tacky so I threw it out. So I usually go for a silicone based lube

Water, because I mostly use silicone toys.

I have a lot of silicone toys, and they're pretty much what I use lubricant for if I do - so water-based.

I prefer silicone based for anal sex (or anal toys that's not made of silicone), and water based for anything else.

I use water-based for silicone toys and vaginal play. Otherwise I prefer silicone because it's slicker and there's rarely a need for re-application.

Water is a good all around lube

Water-based feels the best and most natural to me (Sliquid for the win!) and the majority of my toys are silicone, so I use water-based lube most of the time.

When we rarely have to use any, water based is more versatile, but it can take alot and dry up quickly.

Water is always the best bet. Especially if you get a toy and you don't know what it's made from. I've seen some places not have it on the packaging which is RATHER odd.

Silicone doesn't need to be reapplied (for me anyways)

Water based is just fine and works with a wider range of toys so that's what we go for.

We use oil for everything vaginal with my wife - she loves how the Shea and Cocoa butters leave her skin so soft and smooth. Some like coconut oil - we haven't tried it.

We use silicone for anal play - but only with metal, glass or plastic. That is why we have no silicone toys that we use anally.

We have never found - and stopped looking for a water-based product that we like.

Water-based for most things, but enjoy silicone for anal toys.

Water based by far! Safe with toys and really easy clean up.

Water based...that way we don't have to worry about what toys we are using with what lube.
