useful review
The Better Sex Essentials Gel Lubricant by the Sinclair Intimacy Institute has become our ‘go-to’ lubricant for all manner of penetrative sex. It is everything we want in a lubricant. More importantly, it doesn’t have anything in it that we don’t want to be there, and for us that it critical.

This product is a water-based lube which is absolutely critical for us. We play with a lot of silicone toys which we like very much and want to keep around for years. This gel lube is very friendly to our favorite toys. Being a water-based product it cleans up very easily which is also very nice. Sometimes things get a little messy and being able to clean up with a damp washcloth is quite convenient. The other thing that we like about this water-based lube is that if it does get a little tacky from exposure to the air, a few drops of water gets things slip sliding again in an instant.

The Better Sex Essentials Gel Lubricant is hypoallergenic, non-toxic, and glycerin-free. That last point is especially crucial for Mrs. Peg. She is extremely sensitive to glycerin and nothing ruins playtime quicker than irritated lady bits. Those who are sensitive to parabens should be careful as this lube does contain methylparaben. Fortunately Mrs. Peg does not have a problem with parabens.

What I like most about this lube, aside from it not irritating my wife or killing our toys, is that it is thick without being goopy. We have a gel lubricant that we got exclusively for pegging and it is the consistency of Dippity-Doo hair gel. When you pump it out of the bottle it comes out in a wormy little globs and it doesn’t spread easily over a toy at all. There is none of that with this lube. The Better Sex Essentials Gel Lubricant is thick enough to stay put yet smooth and silky enough to coat a toy in a thin layer of slippery goodness. When you squeeze some out onto a toy it does spread a little bit but you don’t have to worry about it running off your toy and all over the floor, your bed or your partner.

The slickness of the Better Sex Essentials Gel Lubricant is perfect as well. We have used this on skin, latex, silicone, rubber, plastic, steel, and glass with excellent results. Everything gets nice and slippery with gel lubricant and stays that way provided it is being used during penetrative sex. This is also a very good lube to use on Mrs. Peg’s clit, probably due to the natural lubrication she is already producing that helps to recharge it. This is not a stellar lubricant for handjobs because it will dry out over time with exposure to the air. We prefer the Better Sex Essentials Silicone Lubricant for that (provided we are not using any silicone toys at the same time!). I also don’t recommend this as an oral lubricant as it tastes…well, not good. Overall, though, this is a fantastic lube, suitable for all sorts of play with all sorts of sex toy material. It is what we use for almost everything.
Follow-up commentary
We love this lube. It is what we reach for every time we are not engaging in some manual play. It is kind to our toys, super slippery, and lasts a good long time for a water-based lube.
