Slick, silky fun

Pjur Eros Original Bodyglide is a strong, solid option for those looking for a silicone-based lubricant. Be aware, though, that it's incompatible with silicone toys.

extremely useful review
I'll preface this review by mentioning that I'm allergic to glycerin.

It makes life difficult and I'm forever having to check the backs of bottles to be certain I don't accidentally stumble across something that means I'll have a reaction.

Enter Pjur's original Eros bodyglide.

Moving from water-based lubricant to this, the first thing I noticed was the hefty price tag. I was reluctant to spend two to four times as much on the same amount of lubricant, but after using it, I can testify that the old adage 'a few drops go a long way' is true in this case. I don't advise skimping—if you try to have sex with two drops, it probably won't be enough—but if you're new to silicone based lubricant, build up the amount slowly to figure out how much you actually need.

The lubricant itself has a slight chemical scent to it and it clings to the fingers with a pleasant viscosity. It's not a lube that will stay where you put it, like a gel, but it is definitely not watery. The texture is silken and smooth and it feels good on the skin in a way many lubricants don't. There's no tacky residue left behind, either.

Reapplication isn't a problem. Use enough initially and you should be good to go. I've done hour+ penetration sessions with this lubricant without having to reapply or having issues with chaffing, etc.

It also makes an excellent massage oil. It can be used for sex underwater and the smaller amounts needed might make it a more suitable lubricant for travel when you're not checking a bag.

On the negative side, it is unpleasant on the tongue. If you switch between penetration and oral sex or start with fingering then move on to oral, I would recommend looking for a different lubricant. It isn't so much that it has a chemical flavor as it feels like you've licked a pool of motor oil.

Another negative is that being silicone based, this lubricant isn't toy-compatible. If you have allergies to glycerin like me and haven't had luck finding a safe water-based lubricant, you'll want to pick up condoms to cover your toys with. This is a net negative to me because I'm in a fluid-bonded relationship and condoms aren't something that are otherwise on my list.

Cleanup can be a bit of a chore. Getting all of it off is generally a bit more than I feel up to post-orgasm because it clings to the skin in a way water-based lubricants don't. I've had no ill effects from just leaving it on, though.

Overall, it's a product that I would definitely recommend, especially to anyone who cannot use traditional lubricants thanks to allergies.
Follow-up commentary
I still keep a bottle of this on my nightstand, and I don't see that changing. Cleanup is more difficult than with water-based lubricant and I found (strangely) that this lube doesn't seem to work well with glass, but as long as you're ok with using more than one type of lubricant, I'd recommend this one 100%.
