Nice Value, But Silicone Lube Not Preferred

Wet Platinum is too staining and too hard to clean. It is very runny compared to other lubes. Silicone lubes are not my favorite and this one did not win me over. I would look at other silicone lubes before choosing one.
made in the USA
resists water
can stain permanently
more difficult to wash off

useful review


In general, silicone lube is useful for having sex in wet conditions where you need a lube that will withstand the water exposure, like the shower, bath, hot tub, or swimming pool, or for anal sex, where there is no natural lubrication and you want a heavy-duty lube. You may also want a silicone lube with a very well-endowed partner or big toy, or if you are no longer producing your own lubrication very well. It is also generally considered to be smoother-feeling than water-based lube, and believed to not need to be reapplied as often. Personally I have found silicone lubes to not quite live up to the hype, but they are more useful than water-based lubes in some situations.

The one situation where you definitely do not want a silicone lube is to use with silicone toys. They are not compatible. If you are not sure if your toy is silicone, do not use a silicone lube with it.

Wet Platinum is priced competitively with other premium silicone lubes. If you are budget restricted and really need a silicone lube, I think this one is a great purchase. If you are less fiscally-challenged, I think you should go ahead and try out other, more expensive silicone lubes, as I do not believe this one will be the best for everyone. You may want one that is scented, thinner, or thicker. If you are very low on cash, water-based lubes are good for most circumstances, and you might feel they are safer for regular use. Even for anal sex, you may want to consider trying out a natural oil-based lube instead.

Texture / Consistency / Thickness / Viscosity

Wet Platinum feels very runny and mostly like a light oil to the touch. It's easy to pour but hard not to spill. It will not stay where you put it and has a tendency to travel. It's not sticky at all, though. I have not had it turn 'tacky' with time, like a lot of water-based lubes will, although if it's exposed to a lot of water, it will change texture and get more thick and less slick - higher viscosity. But it won't disappear like a water-based lube would, so you will have some kind of lube still, which is better than nothing if you're determined to have sex in the water.

    • Thin

Taste / Aroma

You have to get very close to this lube to catch a scent, but it's faintly like kerosene and plastic to me. It doesn't have much taste, just a bit plastic and chemical, but it's certainly not a good taste and nothing I would like to have in my mouth.
    • Bad taste
    • Light smell
    • Light taste


Personally, I find that I have to constantly reapply this for best results, though I suffer from dryness issues. There are water-based lubes that I feel don't need to be reapplied as much, if I am having sex or masturbating in a situation where I don't particularly require a silicone lube.

Since silicone lubes stain badly, I find them super annoying if I'm using anywhere near clothes or sheets. I would lay a lot of towels down, depending on where you're having sex.

If you have stained something with silicone lube, be prepared for it to never come out. I have gotten some on my sheets before and it has never come out at all from those sheets even though I have washed them many times.

You cannot use silicone lubes with silicone toys. Some people make the claim that you can safely use a premium silicone lube with a premium silicone toy, but I have not found that to be true and silicone toys are not cheap. Not only will you ruin your toy (the two silicones bond together permanently), if you accidentally leave that toy touching against another silicone toy, you will spread the chemical reaction and ruin that one too. I learned that the hard way.

lube damage

Although this silicone lube, and others, claim to be good for massage, I don't like the way they feel on the skin. And again, given the staining issues, I try to keep the lube in as few places as possible.

To really clean up Wet Platinum you are going to need both soap and water. This makes it a bit inconvenient when you are not near a sink or bath. Make sure you have something to clean up with that you are okay with staining, if you can't clean up properly right away.

What I do like about Wet Platinum is that it is non-irritating to delicate vaginal and anal tissue and that it is slick without being super slippery to the point of causing problems.
    • Needs to be washed off with soap and water
    • Not compatible with all materials
    • Reapply often


The small black squeeze bottle it comes in is masculine but very understated. It does seem fairly obvious it's a lube bottle though, or at least I think so. Although they're a little harder to find, I prefer pump type bottles for lube because it's easier to re-apply without getting the bottle dirty. Especially if I am having anal sex, I don't want to rub fecal bacteria all over the lube bottle trying to get more. If your hands are slick from the lube or sweat, this kind of bottle is a little hard to re-open and squeeze without spilling, too.

I wouldn't feel 100% safe to travel with this, I feel like the cap might pop open and spill. So I would want to put it in a ziploc baggie if I threw it in a bag or suitcase.

I would not recommend storing this bottle anywhere near silicone toys, just in case it does tip and spill - imagine if you accidentally splashed it into a drawer full of silicone toys?

Personal comments

In general, the ingredients in this product are safe. However, you may not want to use a silicone lube as a everyday product. These first four ingredients are all non-water-soluable silicones.

Dimethicone - moisturizer, generally safe

Cyclopentasiloxane - skin conditioner, some mild to moderate concerns of this being neurotoxic and a endocrine disruptor

Dimethiconol - skin conditioner, should be just as safe as Dimethicone

Phenyl Trimethicone - generally safe

Tocopheryl Acetate - also known as processed Vitamin E, used for better shelf life and as a ph balancer

    I love that you included the picture of the damage from the silicone lube on silicone toys!
  • hysteriaremedy
    Thanks. I imagine a lot of people must be curious as to what actually happens.
  • Wicked Wahine
    Would you mind telling me which (if you can remember the names) dildos you had react with silicone lubes?
  • hysteriaremedy
    They were both Tantus Silicone. The copper one is Ripple Large. The black one is one of their discontinued designs, can't remember the name.
  • Wicked Wahine
    Thanks for telling me! Well, that sure is premium silicone, so you can't argue that. (Hey, you just changed your name, had me confused there for a second!)
  • Rossie
    Thanks for the review, and I'll definitely not try this lube on any of my silicone toys!

    I was a bit confused by your name change also, I remembered this review was originally published by OneHandedBlogger.
  • Sincerely yours, N
    Thanks for the review! It's a shame that this one did not work out for you. Thanks for the pictures, though - I never knew what happened to silicone dildos if you used a silicone-based lubricant, I mean, I knew it was bad, but the pictures helped explain it!
  • hysteriaremedy
    Yeah, sorry, I decided to change my name to the same as my blog, hysteriaremedy . blogspot . com.
  • Wicked Wahine
    I think the name change is smart in light of what you said. I also like the nod in your new name to the origin of modern vibrators!
  • Wicked Wahine
    *I meant in light of what you said about having it match the name of your blog.
