JO H2O lubricant - water based lube by System JO - review by married with children

best slip and slide out there

I wish you could purchase these in 16 ounce bottles like so many other brands of personal lubricants. That would be my only grip about JO's water based lubes. If you haven't tried one yet, pick yourself up a bottle; I highly doubt you will regret the purchase.
just an overall great lube
the biggest bottle is 8 ounces

extremely useful review


This is best used as a way to reduce friction. It can be used for lubing up your hubs on a trailer, or greasing up gears on your motorcycle. But I prefer to use it for sexual activities. It works pretty well in the bed room, not as well as it does for lubing up the threads on water piping though.

This is one of the best water based lubes I have tried. JO knows what they are doing when it comes to lubing up your naughty bits.

Texture / Consistency / Thickness / Viscosity

This lube is about a medium consistency and thickness. I had a hard time telling the difference between the JO H2O regular and the anal. They felt about the same. Had the same texture and feeling. And felt about the same thickness. The anal version might have been slightly thicker.

You can put a dime size drop on the palm of your hand, and turn your hand vertical; and the lube will slowly take its time to drip down your hand and onto the floor. When I put a drop on the head of my penis, my wife has more then enough time to come over and sit down on it without the lube falling off.

JO lubes have a silky smooth feeling to them. They are very smooth. I have never felt greasy after using one of their products, including this one. JO lube does not leave you feeling sticky afterwords. That is a feeling I have always loved, being able to lay there and fall asleep after a long session without having to jump up and take a shower.

Taste / Aroma

I could not get a hint of smell from this lube. I did not try to taste it, seeing how it was not flavored. We do not for from sex to oral with out non-flavored lubes. That is only done with just her natural lubrication, or our flavored varieties; never a non flavored lube. I have read too many reviews about them being bitter. I do not know if this one is, so lets just assume it is. Save everyone the trouble.

But as far as scent and aroma goes, you cant smell anything with this lube. I can pick up a very light trace of "lube" smell if I hold it right under my nose (almost touching my nose), but I can hardly smell that. It might just be my mind playing tricks on me also.
    • No smell


This preformed just like the anal version. For masturbation, I can use it for 30 minutes or so. Long enough to come twice and fall asleep. For sex, we have never needed to reapply once. One application was all it took, each and every time.

This does not feel natural. But then again, I have never had lube that came from a bottle feel natural. And I honestly do not believe anyone else has either. Now, that's not a bad thing. Its hard to replicate nature. With that being said, this lube does not take away from your pleasure during your freak sessions. Its long lasting, smooth, and does its job. What more can you ask of it?
    • Absorbs into skin nicely
    • Long lasting
    • Performance


We purchased the 8 ounce bottle. Its clear plastic, and covered in writing. Not very discreet, as it does not look like your typical lotion bottle. It looks like a bottle of lube. It is covered in directions for use, and warnings. It also has an expiration date stamped on the bottle, taking all the guessing out of how old your bottle of lube is.

I would say this is travel friendly if you placed it inside a plastic bag. The cap is a flip top. So it is slightly more secure then a pump top, but they can all leak in the right conditions. But in a plastic bag, it should be easy to take with you on a trip.
    • Recyclable
    • Travel friendly
    • Very informative packaging

Like I stated above, JO makes some of the best lubes I have every tried. They are my personal favorites. I love the flavored ones. I did not care for the silicone lubes. But the water based lubes are great. Whether you go for the regular or anal version, you will get a great lube that will aid you in your sexual adventures.
Follow-up commentary
We just love JO lube. A little goes along ways. I have never had JO lube get sticky on me during use. I hardly ever have to reapply in the middle of the action. They only time we do, is when we are using toys on her for an extended amount of time. I can not recommend this more. Its by far the best I have ever used in my almost 20 years of sexual activity.
