Not the best choice!!

For the price you pay for this item, you could buy something that is much better -- something that tastes good and stays slippery!
affordable, slippery (at first)
it gets sticky very quickly

My husband and I picked this up a few months ago and we've used it a few times but I don't think either of us like this very much. Sure, it's quite slippery at first but within several seconds, this lube turns sticky and that's a huge turn-off. It is a huge hassle to have to stop in the middle of the "deed" and apply more lube! I wish this product maintained it's slippery-ness for a longer period of time because those first few seconds are fabulous! It was a huge hassle having to stop multiple times to reapply this product.

As for the flavor (or lack thereof) it doesn't have a horrible taste, but the flavor isn't great either. It also leaves a strange feeling on my tongue, which makes it hard to enjoy the moment. I'm sure my husband didn't notice or mind the weird hacking noise I kept making, but it was annoying to me! It felt like it sort of dried out my mouth, if that makes any sense.

All in all, this product is pretty much on par with other drugstore lubricants. I'd say this is definitely better than any KY product, but certainly not good enough to use on a regular basis. There are so many good lubes on the market that I cannot be bothered to use something of this quality unless in dire circumstances. I'd always heard good things about Astroglide, which is why we bought this in the first place, but we were both left rather disappointed.

I guess if there are any good redeeming qualities about this lube is that it is very affordable and it cleans up easily, which is a good thing because the bottle leaks terribly -- all over my nightstand, all over my luggage. It was plenty slippery on both of those things, just not slippery enough where it really mattered!!

    I agree, the low cost and availability are what make it appeal to so many. It really isn't a great lube. What has been your favorite so far? If you haven't tried Maximus yet, it's a great one to try out. Welcome to the community and thanks for the review.

    My wife used to buy Astroglide and I felt the same way about it being messy, drying out and getting sticky very quickly. We now use Maximus lube (as Jimbo also recommends) and we've been very happy with it. The lube's texture / viscocity is great and it comes in a bottle with a push down dispenser top. It's discreet enough to sit on the bedside. And no mess!

    Yeah, sticky sucks. It's great that you can get this just about anywhere but not so great that it works poorly.

    Nice review. Smile

    Ugh! I hate leaky bottles! They can make such a huge mess in so short of a time period! I also suggest maximus as well as climax h20. They don't leak either! Smile
