Great Glide, Bad Pump

This is a good lube. It gets the job done well. I would have given it 5 stars, but I really hate the bottle's pump. I mean, I really hate it. Thankfully, I.D. does not stain floors or sheets. That being said, next time I will just get a flip-top bottle.

useful review


I love using this lube. This is my go-to lube for everything: anal, vaginal, and clitoral. However, one thing I don't recommend trying with it is a body massage. I.D. isn't marketed to be one—I was just saying. With anal intercourse, many people like to use something thicker than water based, like silicone, but I.D. Glide works well enough for my tastes. I consider it to be great for toys because I.D. won't react badly with them, and it is safe for latex and polyurethane condoms.

Water-based lube should be one of the staples in any sex toy chest, and this one fits the bill.

Texture / Consistency / Thickness / Viscosity

Consistency is a hard quality to explain. I guess I would compare it to liquid fabric softener. I.D. is similar to it in thickness and consistency. Glide is heavier than some of the other water-based lubes on the market, like Sliquid. I like this quality because it doesn't run everywhere. Glide doesn't feel completely like the real thing, but it has added to every experience I have had using it.

Taste / Aroma

It has no aroma. However, for the sake of it, I tasted it . . .

You never know when someone may fall with their tongue hanging out. Yeah, tasting is NOT recommended. I.D. isn't meant to be ingested. Consider this if oral delights are on the schedule for the evening because the lube can linger on your skin, even if it has dried. It isn't pleasant.
    • No smell


This lube was sufficient for my uses, both anally and vaginally, with no need to reapply. However, I needed to reapply several times with clitoral stimulation. The bottle states to reactivate with water, which I didn't do the first trial and thus got a sticky feeling. On my second session of vibrator play, I tried using water, and it definitely cut down on the tackiness. Washing up afterward was quite easy: just using warm water takes it off.
    • Performance


I tested the 17.5-ounce bottle, which is a pump bottle. This is the product's downfall. The spout is off-centered. It looks cool, but it makes the bottle VERY easy to knock over. I knocked the bottle over several times . . . The other awkward thing about the pump is that it locks by turning the spout. It seems like a good idea to avoid messes, but it ends up locking in the middle of playing. It is aggravating.
    • Can be opened with one hand
    • Messy dispenser
Follow-up commentary
I eventually wised up and just found a sports squirt bottle to get rid of that dreadful pump. Everything was smooth gliding from there on out. I just recently used the last of it. I will probably go with another ID product, but will always have a little travel bottle for backup.

    Thanks for the review. Sorry the pump was such a pain. I liked that you included that it was safe for polyurethane condoms as well as latex one. BTW, what are the ingredients in this lube?
