Maximus for Maximum Pleasure!

This lube is amazing and feels totally natural! Is is a total bargain since it's not expensive and you get quite a bit in the bottle. However, this product does contain parabens, so if you are concerned about them, this product may not be for you!
smooth, long-lasting, good for toys, not sticky

useful review


Maximus is a water-based lube, so it can be used in a variety of ways. It can be used for masturbating, whether you are using your hand or a toy (it's safe for pretty much any toy), or intercourse. The lubricant is somewhat thick, so it is even good for anal play and/or anal sex.

The only limitation is that Maxiumus was not created for use in water. Water-based lubes wash off very easily, so they are not ideal for using in the shower, bath, pool, or any similar locations. On the upside, this also means that you can easily clean this lubricant off of your body!

Another great use I've found for Maximus is massages! When you first pump some of this lubricant out, it seems a bit thick. However, when applied to the body, it thins a bit and work with the body's natural temperature. It is not overly sticky or oily, so it is wonderful for body rubs!

Texture / Consistency / Thickness / Viscosity

As mentioned in the previous category, this lube is a bit thick. However, it becomes less so when applied to the body. It is very smooth and works well with the body for it seems to heat and melt with natural fluids.

I have never had to apply more lube when using Maximus since it doesn't just wear into the skin. However, the lubricant comes in a easy-to-use push pump; therefore, even if one does need more, it is easy to apply.

This lubricant also washes off very easily. After use, I used a baby wipe and I was perfectly clean. With some lubes, I have had to take a full shower to get it completely off. Being easy to clean was a great benefit since I didn't have to rush off to the bathroom immediately after use.
    • Smooth

Taste / Aroma

Maximus was not intended to be used for oral sex. However, I have tasted it accidentally. It isn't the worst but it is far from pleasant. I do my best to avoid getting it into my mouth but it isn't the end of the world if it does.

As far as aroma, there is no smell to this lube.
    • Bad taste
    • No smell


Maximus is long-lasting and feels completely natural. Honestly, I couldn't even tell that I was using lube if I didn't think about it. It is smooth and works extremely well with the body!

What I also love about this lube is that it never became sticky! Even after prolonged usage, there was no discomfort. Additionally, since Maximus continued to feel natural, I didn't have to rush to clean myself after use. Even when I left it on for awhile, it seemed to just absorb into my skin; it didn't feel like I was coated in lube.
    • Absorbs into skin nicely
    • Feels natural
    • Long lasting


There isn't an actual box or anything that this lube comes in. However, I am writing in this section because of the design of the bottle itself. I have yet to come upon many lubes that are in a pump bottle. Maximus is so easy to use since all you have to do is push down on the little handle. Since you don't have to squeeze a bottle, there is very little mess!
    • Easy to use / dispense

Personal comments

Maximus is one of my two favorite lubricants!
Follow-up commentary
I still absolutely love Maximus; it is my personal favorite lubricant. Not only is this my go to lube for vaginal intercourse, it is the only lube that I feel comfortable using for anal play. It is somewhat thick and doesn't need to be reapplied, which is a major benefit. One of the things I hate most is when my partner and I have to take a break in order to reapply lube. Maximus will last through the longest session without leaving a sticky residue.

Since I didn't include the ingredients in my original review, here is the list:
Highly Purified Water, Propylene Glycol, Cellulose Polymer Di Sodium EDTA Phenoxyethanol, Methyl Paraben, Propyl Paraben.

As you can see, Maximus does contain parabens. Some studies have shown the parabens have been linked to cancer; however, the results are inconclusive as to whether the appearance of parabens in products actually leads to the disease. Since a cause and effect relationship can not be proven, the FDA has not chosen to ban the use of this chemical. Of course, you always have the choice to choose paraben-free products.

    Awesome that you love this so much! It has been one of my top favorite (this and Liquid Silk) for a whole year now! I love it too. It's great about feeling somewhat natural and not leaving residue. That was my two favorite things about it as well. I enjoyed reading your thoughts on this.
