This Stuff Is Horrible!

I highly suggest staying away from this lube. It’s very watery, doesn’t last, and becomes tacky. It gets everywhere because you can't control how much lube comes out of the bottle. It's just not worth getting.
Inexpensive, Large bottle, No smell
Contains glycerine and parabens, Bitter taste, Watery, Gets tacky, Doesn’t last
Rating by reviewer:
useful review


If you read enough lube reviews, you know lube can be used in many ways: vaginal sex, anal sex, manual masturbation, oral sex, and to enhance arousal. Unfortunately, Toko Aqua from Shunga doesn’t do any of those very well. It is water based so it is safe to use with any toy materials and condoms.

Texture / Consistency / Thickness / Viscosity

In one word, watery. I’m not kidding. If you’ve tried Pink Water, this stuff is even worse. It dries up very quickly, leaving behind a tacky mess. If you want a lube that lasts, this isn’t the one. Soap and water will easily clear away the tackiness.

Taste / Aroma

I couldn’t detect any smell, but this lube has a very bitter taste. The taste fades quickly, but it is too unpleasant for oral sex.


Shunga, I love all your other products that I’ve tried, but seriously, this lube doesn’t need to be so watery. The first time I used this lube, I got it everywhere. Such a waste!
It absolutely has no staying power. A little drop on a toy won’t even stay put without some of it dripping off. It’s horrible. I would hate to throw this away, but I have no idea what I could use it for.

Ingredients: Water, Glycerin, Propylene Glycol, Polyquaternium 7, MethylParaben, PropylParaben.

It contains glycerine which is known to give some women yeast infections, so if you are sensitive to that, then don’t get this lube. It also has parabens, so do a spot test on your wrist for any reactions.


The bottle is nice, but it is a little hard to open. For $9.99 you get 5.5 fl.oz which is not bad, but you’ll go through it very quickly with regular use. It has a flip cap so it is pretty difficult to get the right amount. It pours out way too quickly. On the bottle, it tells you what it is, but from afar, it looks like a hand cream or lotion.
Follow-up commentary
I threw this out. I couldn't even open the bottle up to put in a different product. I don't know why others have given this such a high rating because this lube sucks.

    What a disappointment! I have Toko Organica and Toko Aroma and I like Aroma a lot, but don't love Organica. I was getting curious about this kind, but I will definitely pass. Aroma is pretty watery so I can imagine this being way too thin/watery. Thanks for the info!
