Slippery, not sticky!

Great lube. I would recommend this to anyone, especially those with toys that require water-based lubes. The only con I'd consider is the bad taste, which can sometimes be a real dealbreaker!
Long lasting
Does not stain
Strong, bitter taste

useful review


This water-based lube is thick and slick. Good for solo play, couples, and toy play. I have never experienced any sort of reaction to this product, and I do have sensitive skin (no burning, rash, etc). Big plus!

Texture / Consistency / Thickness / Viscosity

It is thicker, which is nice because it stays in place a little better than other liquid lubes do. The pump top is great - very convenient! This product doesn't get sticky or greasy, but it does need to be reapplied after about 15 minutes.
    • Slick
    • Smooth
    • Thick

Taste / Aroma

The aroma is not strong at all, but I did not care for the taste. Once it was on, oral stopped, which is one of the biggest cons of this product in my opinion. Very bitter, unpleasant taste.
    • Bad taste
    • Light smell
    • Strong taste


It lasts about 15 minutes before it needs to be reapplied. A little of this product goes a long way, which I love (so there isn't lube all over you, your partner, and everything within a 20 ft. radius). Being water-based, I find it fairly easy to wash off with a little soap.
    • Feels natural
    • Needs to be washed off with soap and water
    • Not compatible with all materials


This little plastic pump bottle is not discreet, but it can be locked down to travel.
    • Does not leak
    • Easy to use / dispense
    • Travel friendly

Special Features

No tingling, warming, etc.
Follow-up commentary
I still really appreciate this lube, it being one of my favorites (minus the bitter taste). I'm now setting my sights on a lube with the same consistency & long lasting texture, but flavored. Otherwise this product would get 5/5 stars!
