You Have Proven Your Valor Once Again, Maximus

Maximus is an absolutely wonderful lubricant. It is water-based which means that it is safe to use with all your toys, condoms, whatever. It is nice and thick which makes it great for anal sex. It lasts a long time and doesn’t get gummy. It just works for whatever you want it to do. The only drawback for me is it isn’t great to use in the shower. Now, put down that bottle of Astroglide and go get yourself some real lube – Maximus.
Water based, thick, long lasting.
Not good in the shower, not flavored.

extremely useful review
Well, the word Maximus translates from Latin as “greatest” or “largest” and I personally feel that this lubricant definitely lives up to the ideal of “greatest”. I am sure I am not alone in my long trek through the valley of personal lubricants|Lubricants. I mean I started with KY Jelly and remember thinking, this stuff isn’t too bad. At least it makes things simpler. Later on, I got some Astroglide|Astroglide review and tried it out. I remember my thoughts then were along the lines of, this is so much better than KY that I should have tried this a long time ago. I would venture to different products all sold at the local drug store and some of them were okay, but in general Astroglide was probably the best of the bunch. Then, I learned about silicone lubricants and how good they are in wet environments. I will say that Silicone based lubes are great in the shower, but they tend to stain fabrics, so they aren’t as friendly in the bedroom. They can harm silicone toys as well, so it isn’t necessarily ideal for that use either. The best thing about my discovery of silicone lubes is that it really opened up my world because I couldn’t get silicone lube at my local drug store. I had to go to a sex shop or order them online. During this process, I discovered that there is a whole world of water based lubricants out there and many of them leave Astroglide in the dust. Maximus is one of these lubricants.

The ingredient list for Maximus is: highly purified water, propylene glycol, cellulose polymer, di-sodium EDTA, phenoxyethanol, methyl paraben, butyl paraben, ethyl paraben, and propyl paraben. Notice the lack of glycerin. This is good for those prone to yeast infections. Also, note the use of parabens which can be a source of irritation for those with paraben allergies. There are a couple of alcohols in there and I presume that the cellulose polymer is a thickener. Really not a bad ingredient list for a water based lube. It doesn’t contain aloe vera or vitamin E like some lubes do, but those are really just there for their skin moisturizing properties not their lubricating properties.

So, I have used Maximus lube with toys, as well as vaginal and anal sex. I have been extremely pleased with its performance in all of these applications. Like any water based lube it isn’t great in the shower. It doesn’t taste great, so maybe look elsewhere for a nice oral lubricant as well. Other than that, it is thicker and lasts longer than almost every other water based lube I have tried. Before I forget, don’t get the smallest bottle that you can find because I don’t think you get the terrific pump top unless you go with the 250 ml bottle. Also, once you try it you’ll want to use it all the time, trust me.
Well, my partner indulges me on special occasions by opening her ass for a little loving. She recently did this in celebration of my birthday and gave us an excellent opportunity to test Maximus out for anal sex. I mean it had already been used on my ass with toys and fingers, but I am an eager recipient of anal play and with her, not so much. Any way, with one squirt (gotta love that pump) in my palm I spread it on her anus as well as the finger that I was going to use to warm her up. After a little sphincter massage and warm up she was ready to go. Another shot of Maximus spread all over my penis and I was ready to go as well. After a gradual entry, we were in business and she said that Maximus made the whole experience very comfortable. All in all, the event came off smoothly and she even said that she might allow for more frequent forays into that area in the future. Yay for me! I love you Maximus, oh and you too, sweetie!
