Maximus is the gold standard

The only unflavored lube for me, a perfect 10 if there where lube Olympics. I have purchased this product for friends.
Compatible with everything, non irritating.
Pump bottle makes it hard to travel with.

useful review
Maximus is the thickest water based lube I have ever used. That's an important consideration when I buy a lubricant. It is much more cushiony and slower to dry than your basic drugstore squeeze-from- the-tube lube. No drip and plop here. It’s also slower to dry, which means no "wait a minute, pass me the tube, I gotta re-lube".

Maximus is clear like water, viscous but not at all sticky, and has no irritants in its formula. It’s basically water, propylene glycol to thicken it up, and parabens which act as antimicrobials and preservatives. There are no "warming agents", "tingling agents", sugars, artificial sugars or glycerins that can cause yeast infections.

Maximus comes in a convenient pump dispenser with 240 grams of lubricant. That's a lot of lube for less than twenty bucks, and its far thicker than the drugstore or pretty much any other brands, making it a smart buy.

Maximus is dispensed from a clear plastic bottle (recycle-able grade 3) with the word MAXIMUS, and in smaller writing at the bottom "A Water - Based Sensual Lubricant". There is always an expiration date clearly marked on the front, and a lot number. The product is safety sealed to prevent tampering and sampling. There's a black Corinthian column, and a Grecian Urn on the packaging, but otherwise its very unassuming and tastefully packaged; and it doesn't scream "sex" in any way.

Maximus is tasteless, odorless, and washes easily out of sheets, clothing, and off your body. It is not sticky, tacky, or greasy for something so viscous. It’s perfect for lubricating condoms, vibrators, dildos, anal toys, and for manual masturbation. It will not react with your toys, it will not destroy the integrity of your condoms or dental dams, it cleans up easily with your favorite method; be it antibacterial soap, toy cleaner, etc. If you are using toys that are not silicone, steel, acrylic, or glass. It is always wise to cover the toy with either toy covers, or condoms, before using lubricants and especially before anal play because many toys are porous and can harbor infectious bacteria.
I started purchasing Maximus a few years ago at the advice of a friend. Not only was I satisfied with the purity, value and of course the texture, but I was happy to see the company had contact information on the side of its packaging if I had questions.
Follow-up commentary
It is still my favorite water-based lubricant. I really think hospitals would get some good use out of this product for echocardiograms, dopplers, ultrasounds, and internal exams. You don't need to reapply it, it’s so efficient. I love it because it doesn't leave me dry and irritated, and I will continue to use it. I still give it a 5 star, because it rates a perfect 10 to me. The only thing I would change would be to add a flip top cap, to lessen the chance of micro-organisms entering into the pump's opening. I do keep my open bottle dated (the date I opened it), and in a zip lock bag.
