extremely useful review


Sliquid's Sassy Booty lube is - as the name suggests - marketed primarily as an anal lube. It's thicker than many lubes and if you were lying face down having this applied to your behind you could easily be forgiven for thinking it's silicone based rather than water. For this reason it doesn't feel like your own natural lubrication, but given the all-natural ingredients it could easily be used vaginally without causing any problems.

We use this primarily for pegging. We started out with other water-based lubes like Astroglide and thought that was the best until we found the Sliquid line. After some experimentation with other lubes here on EF, we're now convinced that this is THE water-based lube for anal play. There are other contenders to the throne of course, but another highly-rated lube, Maximus, has ingredients that irritate both of us (so we've unfortunately got almost a whole bottle of that left!).

Texture / Consistency / Thickness / Viscosity

We described this as almost silicone-like. That might be unintentionally misleading though - it's not as slick as some silicone-based lubes like Wicked Ultra, but it's thicker than you'd expect for a water-based one.

Also, surprisingly for a water-based lube, this isn't runny at all. You can apply some to your fingertips and it will still be where you put it several seconds later. That's not to say it won't run - it will - it's just got a good consistency. I'd probably describe it as being something like thick sugar water but completely smooth.

First application

Ten seconds later, it's barely moved. Hmmm, where's the wife? It'd be a shame to waste this...

As a test, I squeeze some of this out of the bottle onto my fingertips. It stayed put for a good 5 seconds before it even began to look like it was going to move. After about 10 seconds it slowly started to drip down towards my next finger. So I wouldn't say it doesn't move, but it's certainly thick with a wonderful consistency.

I also tried a completely unscientific consistency test to see how this compares to our other go-to anal lube, Probe's Thick and Rich. That one is known for its very stringy consistency (which I alternate between loving and hating). Sassy Booty is totally different and far less stringy, as you can see:

Sassy Booty consistency v Probe Thick & Rich
    • Slick
    • Smooth
    • Thick

Taste / Aroma

Sassy Booty is made from very few ingredients, which are:

Purified Water
Plant Cellulose (from Cotton)
Cyamopsis (Guar Conditioners)
Potassium Sorbate
Citric Acid

The all-natural ingredients mean that any slight smell is also pretty natural. It's hard to pick up the scent of this - in theory it's unscented but if you use enough it has a very slight citrus smell. I wouldn't recommend this for oral, but if you end up going down on your partner who's already had some of this applied then the taste is quite bitter.

What can I say that hasn't already been said about this great lube? It's easily our favourite for anything anal-related where silicone can't be used. Silicone toys work very well with this and we'll often use it as a 'starter' lube for regular anal sex too.

The downside with any water-based lube is that there will be a tendency to dry out and get a little tacky. Of course that's exactly because they're water-based, since the water will tend to evaporate or absorb into the skin. Depending on what you're doing, you can sometimes reactivate these lubes with a little more water (or saliva, should you not want to stop what you're doing). Failing that, the lube will have to be reapplied. We've found that Sassy Booty needs to be reapplied about once every 20 minutes or so if we're pegging with it. As far as I can guess (being a man and not producing lubrication back there), this is how I imagine natural lubrication would feel. If my ass is being toyed with using silicone lube, it just feels very, very slick. With this it almost feels as though it's part of me.

We haven't used this for vaginal sex, but imagine it would probably get a little too tacky for that.
    • Absorbs into skin nicely
    • Feels natural


Here's one of the few downsides - I really wish EF carried this in a bigger bottle. That's for two reasons - firstly, we go through quite a lot of this; secondly, the lower down the bottle you get, the harder it is to squeeze the lube out.

This comes in a plastic 4.2oz bottle with press-down cap (which is another thing - I'd love a bigger bottle of this with a pump dispenser). The bottle is nice and fairly discreet with a pink label featuring white graphics. Some might find it a little too feminine for them, so that should probably be taken into consideration.
