Oiling the Squeaky Back Door Hinge

In making their Back Door Formula, Pjur used high quality silicone ingredients to create a thick lube and then added a couple of ingredients to help relax the anal sphincter. It is not desensitizing but it does seem to decrease the blood flow in the area where it is applied. This seems to work well for back door loving; and since it is silicone based, it is good for use in wet environments but use with silicone toys should probably be avoided.
Thick, rich, water resistant, long lasting, "relaxing".
May cause his parts to "relax" as well.
Rating by reviewer:
extremely useful review


Among lubricants, silicone based lubricants are considered some of the most luxurious available. And among silicone based lubricants, Pjur lubricants are considered some of the best. Their Back Door formula is no exception. The first two Back Door ingredients are the silicone: Dimethicone, Dimethiconol. Dimethicone is the densest of the liquid silicones and is also more expensive as a raw ingredient. This means that the Back Door formula should be on the thicker end of silicone lubricants. The other two ingredients: Jojoba seed oil, and Amyris balsamifera bark oil are added for their relaxing properties to help ease anal entry. More information on these ingredients can be found in these Ezine articles: Amyris Balsamifera Jojoba.
So, clearly Pjur specifically formulated Back Door for anal use. Since it is a silicone based lubricant, it is water resistant, which makes it particularly useful in the shower or the bath tub. It can also be used for vaginal sex, but the attributes of the extra ingredients may not be as helpful here. It might help in the case of a "first-timer" though. Circumstances where this lubricant may not work well are for a hand job or male masturbation as the relaxing attributes might not lead to a favorable result. Use with silicone toys should probably be avoided as well.

Texture / Consistency / Thickness / Viscosity

The silicone content of this lube is designed to make it one of the thickest silicone lubes. There are water based lubes available that use thickeners to make them even thicker than this, but those ingredients are not as body safe as this is. It is easy to forget that since silicone lube does not absorb into the skin, not as much lube is required to get the same degree of lubrication. A little dab seems like it won't last, but then you can just keep rubbing your fingers together and it never really goes away. The texture is smooth and not stringy, and doesn't get sticky over time. In fact, if you don't wipe/wash it off, you may find you can still feel it between your cheeks much later.

Taste / Aroma

Silicone lubes generally don't have taste or odor due to the nature of the ingredients. One might think that the other ingredients may add some kind of odor or taste to the lube, but the jojoba oil is supposed to be odorless and tasteless. The bark ingredient, does seem to add just a hint of a "nutty" flavor to the lube. It doesn't taste bad or distracting, just not completely tasteless. It does seem to be odorless, however. If one is concerned about the ingestion of silicone lube ingredients, Metis Black's "got lube? (part 2)" article is a good read. This, of course, does not mention the other ingredients, so additional research is necessary for those.


The added ingredients in Pjur Back Door definitely provide this lube with relaxing properties. It worked very well in its intended anal application. It's effect on the sphincter wasn't all that noticeable, but it worked very well as a lubricant and seemed to reduce blood flow to the area very well. This would probably be a good lube to try with a large anal toy to see if it allows for easier entry.


Pjur Back Door comes in pretty simple packaging. Unscrew the cap and squeeze it into your hand or directly to the area that needs lube. A pump top to make acquisition from the bottle easier would be nice, but isn't all that common.


We used this lube both in and out of the shower. Its lubrication properties were very good. In fact, I would say it is probably the best silicone lube I have experienced from purely a lubrication standpoint. If Pjur products are all that good, I'll have to pick up some others. The additional ingredients seemed to do their job well - maybe too well in some cases.
We didn't seem to notice it too much during the anal activities, but when it was applied liberally to my penis it made it more difficult to obtain an erection. It was kind of an interesting feeling, as I still had most of the sensation but I just wasn't really getting hard. I will do further tests with a large glass butt plug and provide a follow up review with the results.
This product is a high quality lube with some interesting additional features that might make anal play a little more comfortable. If you have had trouble with anal activities in the past, this might be something to try.

    Excellent review. And interesting about the relaxing properties. I have Pjur Eros and love it. You should try that as well.
  • Contributor: Jimbo Jones
    Thanks for the compliment, newme21. After experiencing this product I will definitely have to check out more of Pjur's stuff.
  • Contributor: Colossus
    Agreed. Interesting about the desnsitizing effect. I have the eros and love it too!
  • Contributor: Jimbo Jones
    Yeah, Colossus, it's hard to call it desensitizing per se because it is not numbing, but it definitely seemed to reduce the blood flow in the area.
  • Contributor: Sammi
    That's an interesting property. I may have to pick this one up.
    Great review as always!
  • Contributor: Jimbo Jones
    Thanks, Sammi, this lube definitely has some interesting properties.
  • Contributor: Angel deSanguine
    I haven't used this particular product from pjur, but I do have pjur eros and we use it as an anal lube as well as with toys it's compatible with and love it.
  • Contributor: Jimbo Jones
    Thanks for the tip AngeldeSanguine. Pjur Eros does come pretty highly recommended. Glad you like it too.
  • Contributor: Naughty Student
    Pjur is so awesome. I just dont know about the desensitizing effect it has (especially if it will affect my mans parts). But I definitely want to give it a try. I'm sure the lube has no effect on the penis if a condom is worn and we always use a condom for anal. What do you think?
  • Contributor: Jimbo Jones
    I go bareback almost all the time, so I didn't even consider the condom effect. I think this would probably work great in that application. In fact, come to think of it, that is probably how they intended for it to be used. Guess I'm not a very good poster child for safer sex. Oops!

    Jimbo, nice review. Perhaps you can answer a question I have after reading it? Why can't you use this jell on silicone butt plugs? Silicone jell + silicone plug = danger? Why?
  • Contributor: Jimbo Jones
    Thanks, Proudy, and very good question. Pure silicone lube + pure silicone toy can be okay, my guess is that the problem occurs because this has additional (non-silicone) ingredients.
