Thick and Water Based! YES!

A must for anyone who plays anally. I can't imagine using any other lube for such a use ever again. Goodbye KY! Hello Anal Lube!
Thick! Compatible with all toys (water based), stays on even in water.
Only one size bottle.

useful review
I bought this lube after coming to the conclusion that a standard lube just wasn't going to cut it if I was going to be using more toys anally. And we all know that when playing with toys anally, you should always use a generous amount of lube. I had one problem.... most of my toys are silicone, so that means only water based lubes.

Damn... My choices for material safe toys was about to come back to haunt me. Most water based lubes are not thick, and are.. well.... watery, which equates to using a whole lot of lube for one session. While this isn't a problem in using enough lube, I hate going through a bottle so quickly! I needed something thick. It was time for a change...

To my surprise this lube is very, very thick. I would compare it to the thickness of aloe vera gel. Perfect for anal use. But would it stand up to the water in the shower or would it wash right off? It stayed on! Even when washing my hands in the sink, it took quite a bit or rubbing to get it all off of my hand. WOOHOO! We have a winner!

Unlike most water based lubes, this one doesn't dry up and doesn't become sticky, which is something I have come to dislike about water based lubes.

The lube consists of Deionized water, Vegetable Glycerin, Propylene Glycol, Polysorbate-20, Carbomer, Triethanolamine, Flavor, DMDM Hydantoin, Mathyparaben. It is also L-Arginine free.

It comes in one size, 6 fl. oz, and in cherry scent as well as unscented. I bought the unscented version as I didn't want to smell like cherries, so I cannot comment of the quality of the cherry scent/taste.

Alas, I think I found a great lube to use anally that is compatible with any and every toy out there. Is there anything closer to a perfect lube? I don't think so.
Follow-up commentary
I LOVE this lube! It is super thick and water based, so I can use it with all of my silicone toys. It stays on in the shower, it doesn't get sticky, it works for anal sex, with condoms, and doesn't smell. It's just great! I definitely am keeping a bottle of this around for quite a long time.

The only thing I would change would be the bottle design. I have to shake this stuff like a bottle of ketchup to get the air bubble out so I can squeeze it out. And even then I REALLY have to squeeze to get it out. I like the flip top cap design, I just wish I could get this stuff out of the bottle easier. I guess that's what you get with a thick lube though...

It also with the label was made of a higher quality paper/plastic, as it has gotten that wierd water soaked feel and look from using it in the shower a few times.

Regardless, if you are into anal play of any sort, with toys, with real penises, or any other object, I HIGHLY recommend this product.

    Nice review, thanks!
  • Miss Cinnamon
    It definitely can be difficult to find a good water-based lube that is thick and won't gum up! Is this bottle travel-friendly at all? Would it spill in a bag, for example?
  • JustYourAverageGuy
    The bottle has one of those caps that pops open with a little spout, I don't think it would accidentally open, but the bottle is too big to carry- on to an airplane... The bottle is very secure though.
