Best water based for anal.

This is a fabulous go to lube for any situation. However, the residue and burning issues should be thought of before purchase. If you tend to have reactions to some toys or products, this may not be for you. If not, then this may be perfect.

All in one lube

extremely useful review


Maximus can be used in just about every way you can use a lube: with toys, vaginally, anally, for masturbation, and it is fairly good for all of them. We all know how much oil based lubes can muck up our sheets, and are not to be used on latex condoms. Silicone can be a bit sticky and slick. Maximus is a water based lube that works for just about any situation.

Texture / Consistency / Thickness / Viscosity

The texture of Maximus is quite velvety, smooth, and a little thick; the kind of thick that is like when we ladies are aroused. The one pump bottle is wonderful, one of my favored methods, and makes it easy to use. For a water based lube, this is most likely the longest lasting one I've tried yet, which makes it great for anal. Another thing that's great is that it feels very natural and most of the time doesn't leave a lot of icky residue. You're free to shower later, but you won't feel the cleanest.

However, it should be noted that some people seem to have a bad reaction to the product. They report a burning sensation. My friend says the same happened to her, and I have felt it on a bottle I had for a while. I'm not sure what causes the sensation, but it can be irritating.

Aside from the burning, there is another problem with this product. I noticed that after I had the lube for a while, that when I had previously been able to wait to drive home before showering, I could do so no longer. Before, when the lube would dry, there was hardly any residue. Now, after it dries I can rub my skin and get rolled up bits of dried lube. The problem is not that bad, so it only slightly affects my vote on this product.

Taste / Aroma

DO NOT EAT. It tastes horrible, but then again it isn't made to taste good. A good thing though is that it has no aroma.
    • Bad taste
    • No smell


I love the way Maximus feels. It feels natural and is almost on par with silicone longevity. For the most part, it absorbs into the skin, but might leave residue later down the line. Can be cleaned up with warm water and maybe some light soap. It cleans right out of fabrics. May cause burning reaction.

    Thanks for a good review.

    The texture sounds good, but my wife and I avoid lubes like this, where the ingredients are all chemicals, some of which (like parabens) are known to cause immediate problems for some people, and may cause longer-term problems for many others.

    We like Sliquid Organics Gel, which is also quite thick, but with safe, real ingredients.

    People are really polarized about this product and it's interesting to see the rave reviews become a bit more tempered over the years. Thanks for weighing in!
