Astroglide? Meh.

I'm somewhat neutral here. It's a lube, but nothing special, nothing to make me say "This was amazing!" or "That was so terrible, I'm gonna kill myself now." It will get you started but you're better off looking elsewhere.
It lubricates, you can get it anywhere
Doesn't last, not all it's cracked up to be

useful review
So, Astroglide. You hear about it all the time. You see it everywhere. You're curious, right? Believe me when I say it's not worth it. I bought a bottle and, and tested it on my hands first. I didn't really notice a smell and I didn't taste it. For all the talk about how it "works for everything," it "Lasts forever," and it's "great for anal" it didn't really last all that long. I mean, unless your sex lasts only a few minutes, (I know a lot of people *do* only have sex for a few minutes) it's not that great.

You can add a little water and it sort of slicks up again, but who wants to constantly be pumping water in their butt to have sex? Not my idea of a good time, but to each their own.

The feeling of the lube isn't pleasant after you've finished. You pretty much want to shower right away with this one. I don't know about anyone else, but when I finish, the first thing I want is to eat, and I have yet to figure out how to keep my sandwich from getting soggy in the shower.

While it works with pretty much everything (Condoms, all toys, so on and so forth) I don't see why you'd want to use it. I suppose if you're into bathrooms, you could just go at it in the bath tub, then turn the water on and it's not a big deal, unless you're hungry, of course.

You can't use this while taking a shower because it washes off, which means you need to be a little creative while reviving the lube, unless you want to just reapply it. It left an odd spot on my couch. Not sure if it's just because my couch is lame and air stains it or what not, but it might not be good for some fabrics. It is water based though, so as long as it only falls on sheets or something that can be run through the wash, it can be washed out normally.

It wasn't so terrible that I'll never use it again, but it wasn't what it's made out to be. While some lubes make sex better, this is not one of them.
Follow-up commentary
My younger brother ended up finding it and asking about it. After a long talk about why lube is important (And a short rant on how I dislike Astroglide products) he ended up taking it and my lovely little box had a little more room. Also, with all of the things my brother's been getting from me in one way or another (Condoms from my giant stash, lube, books...) I'm beginning to feel like a mini sex shop myself.

    what are the ingredients in this lube? We had a bottle of this years ago. I only had a chance to use it once or twice before dropping the bottle and breaking it. Lube all over the hardwood floor. Not good. But I cant remember how long it lasted for us. thanks for sharing. good review.

    I've never been very impressed with Astroglide either. Many people give it really glowing reviews and compared to most of the stuff you can find at the supermarket it is good, but there are WAY better lubes out there if you go to the right store (B&M or online). Thanks for your review.

    Ingredients are: Purified Water, Glycerin, Propylene Glycol, Hydroxyethylcellulose, Aspartame, Methylparaben, Sodium Benzoate.

    Aspartame being a sweetener that, iirc, everyone links to cancer. I didn't notice that until you asked. A bit spooky.

    For me, it was one of those things that I heard about all the time when I was younger so I assumed it was what I was "supposed to use". I got it ages ago and forgot about it. The things you find when you do Winter-Spring-Cleaning, right? Right now I'm really into the Wet Synergy (original) stuff, but the boyfriend prefers ID Pleasure. They're both better than Astroglide so I guess we're good for a while.
