K-Y jelly

Lubricant by K-Y Brand

Add resource

Sticky, Tacky, Smelly, Unhealthy, and Gross. That's right, it's K-Y Jelly!

K-Y Jelly smells bad, gets tacky quickly, and is made of unhealthy ingredients. I find that disappointing considering it's one of the few lubes you can get in a convenience store. From now on, I'm definitely sticking to System-JO or possibly Lelo Lubricant (I haven't tried it enough to know how much I like it yet). Never going back to K-Y. I apologize for the review being short and terse, but there isn't much else to say other than I wouldn't recommend this lube.
None other than it functions as a lube better than something as terrible as lotion or baby oil.
Bad ingredients, tastes gross, smells bad, gets sticky and tacky, feels nasty. Basically everything.

useful review


The best use for this product is as a lube for intercourse, anal sex, or masturbation because it decreases friction and discomfort. I would not recommend it for oral sex because it neither tastes nor smells good. The product works for anyone who needs or wants extra lubrication, though there are way better options available that do that. My main concern is that it has glycerin which can cause a yeast infection.

Texture / Consistency / Thickness / Viscosity

The texture is thick and gooey, like a hair gel. It gets sticky quickly and squeezing it out of the bottle is a pain. It sort of just hangs there for a second before coming out.

Taste / Aroma

The aroma isn't strong, but not good either. It smells like it's made of unhealthy chemicals and doesn't taste great either.

    • Bad taste


The product lasts less than a few minutes and needs to be reapplied often. It also needs to get washed off because the sticky feeling gets annoying quickly. It's cheap and it worked well enough, but I'd never use it again. The lube causes more trouble than it's worth.
    • Allergy concerns
    • Gets sticky
    • Reapply often


The packaging is boring, but acceptable. Since it has no naked people on it or vulgar terms, it's discreet enough not to attract much attention. The only thing that gives it away is the use of the phrase "personal lubricant" printed on the front. That being said, everyone knows what K-Y Jelly is, so it's not necessarily good for travel. On the back it has ingredients and uses, though it is lube so I figure that's pretty straight forward.
    • Can be opened with one hand
    • Discreet looking packaging
    • Does not leak

Special Features

The product does what it says and there is nothing special about it.

Personal comments

One of the main concerns I have is that K-Y Jelly is not body safe because all of their products (even the "extra sensitive" ones) contain glycerin. The body breaks down glycerin into sugar; yeast LOVES sugar. Therefore using K-Y Jelly increases the likelihood of getting a yeast infection. Who wants to deal with that?


I found that the lube needed to be reapplied. It even made things worse when it got sticky. It caused issues with extra drag and friction. Also, there was a slight stinging feeling and general discomfort in my vagina after using the lube. I didn't like it at all. It was the first lube I tried at that time and it worked. That is until I realized there were far better and healthier options out there. Just don't buy K-Y Jelly or anything from K-Y. It's not worth your time or money.

Follow-up commentary
I've only ever used this when there is nothing else available. I still wouldn't recommend it for sure. Too sticky and gross. I've tried 3 other lubes and this is still on the bottom. Even below Astroglide.
