    RESIZED TEXT GOES HERECOLORED TEXT GOES HERE

    so ive been wanting to try some new products. I was wondering what kind of lubes you all recommend? water based vs. silicone based. Currently I have been using Wet Platinum which is a silicone based lube. Ive been wondering if i have been using the best i could possibly use. icon_smile.gif

    So hit me back with some brands or products i should be trying. Numbing? Lubing? etc etc kinda new to the whole "bottoming" idea

    Swiss Navy is the best selling brand at my work because it's cheaper than Pjur and works just as well (both excellent lubes). It's got a nice thick consistency (both the water based and silicone), not overly watery or greasy and doesn't get tacky. Titanmen is made by Pjur, it's the same thing packaged for the gay market (and a bit more expensive).

    I like Swiss navy silicone to jack off with and water based for anal. Silicone for anal can be a little too rough which is good on occasion but not all the time for me. Wet is a standard lube brand, the silicone is a little more runny than Swiss Navy but works the same. I like their water based 'cos it has this 'fresh' feeling, almost cooling sensation when it comes out of the bottle, like mineral water lol.

    I don't mind the warming lubes for jacking off but for anal it reminds of taking a hot dump from eating too much chili!

    I like Pjur Backdoor for silicone, although I haven't tried swiss or gun oil. Back Door has "muscle relaxants", which aren't really numbing agents, but they do cause some feeling that makes anal easier.

    A good water based lube is very hard to find. For anal, it needs to be one of the thickest of the water-based, since most of it is targeted to vaginal sex.

    Then there are other things to consider, like how fast it dries, and gumminess when it dries. Sliquid sea I think was a standout in terms of drying and leaving almost nothing behind, but it's probably not thick enough for anal.

    The most important thing for me personally is avoiding things that cause irritation to sensitive skin. Some people love Maximus lube, but it burns me inside and I hate it. This is because of Parabens in the ingredients. I will never buy a lube that has "paraben" anywhere in the ingredients, as well as DMDM Hydantoin, which is also a lesser-known irritant to some.

    I am trying Sliquid Organics Gel now. It's good in most areas, but I would like it to be a little thicker and dry a little less quickly.

    One more tip, when water-based lubes dry out, you should re-moisten them with spit or spray with water. Adding more lube will make things tacky as you go.

    I really like Liquid Silk. I'd avoid anything with numbing features since you could end up getting hurt.

    That's what I've heard many many times, but i've put lanacaine up my butt and it doesn't numb so much that you don't know when you're hitting a wall. Numbing lubes would be less effective than lanacaine, and I have the impression that the dangers are exaggerated.

    I think the only care should be to not use a ton of numbing with a rowdy and unmasterful top.

    Isn't Lanacaine a anti chafing cream? Do you mean Lidocaine? Benzocaine is the anesthetic that most anal relaxant and delay/prolonging sprays have listed in the ingredients. I wouldn't use anything with either of those three names on the product anyhow, the less irritants the better.
    Liquid silk is grea, completely natural and has no glycerin too. I doubt organic lube has any more benefits than regular lubes (but most would be either paraben free/glycerin free/colour and flavour free). I still don't mind the good old KY jelly, nice and thick and easy to wash off.

    I like Astroglide icon_smile.gif A lot, partly because it's cheap. But still good. Or KY Tingling Jelly, also cheap, and also good.

    Pjur's "Man" silicone lube works well for my bf and I...doesn't matter who's on top.


    astroglide is SO 1981...


    wet platnum is almost (but not quite) as satisfactory as pjur is.

    I would like to watch you 'go through' butter...

    The active ingredient in Lanacaine is Benzocaine 20%. Boy Butter for example has 7.5%. They don't irritate really because they numb the skin surface. But using them also reduces sensation in the ass and (if not using a condom) the penis, especially in the first few minutes.

    I don't see how Liquid Silk can be called "completely natural". These are the ingredients:
    Water Purified
    Propylene Glycol
    Isopropyl Palmitate
    Dimethicone
    Cellulose Polymer
    Polysorbate 60
    Sorbitan Stearate
    Cetearyl Alcohol
    Glyceryl Stearate NSE
    BNPD Disodium EDTA
    Phenoxyethanol
    Methylparaben
    Butylparaben
    Ethylparaben
    Propylparaben
    BHT

    That's 4 types of parabens...

    I didn't give a toot that Sliquid Organics Gel had the word "organic" in the name. Actually I ususally assume it means the better ingredients were passed over to make it organic. But I did a comprehensive search of the lubes edenfantasys.com sell, and that one appeared to be the best irritant-free water-based lube for anal. There was another I almost got, and a third that had few reviews and no stock though.

    I would be interested in these lubes that are water-based but with silicone blended in (like Liquid Silk). I'd like to see if they are easy to clean.

    Well I guess I'll read the ingredients more thoroughly next time. Goes to show that natural and organic labeling can be deceptive which was my point and not dig at you, skinnybitch. Duly noted.

    Whoops made a mistake again. Geez, not my week. I was actually thinking of Sylk natural lube (made in New Zealand) not Liquid silk and Sylk natural is alcohol, parabens and glycols free. It's made from kiwifruit vine extract though I don't think it is completely natural.

    It's funny, there's Sylk, Liquid Silk, and Sliquid Silk. Easy to get them confused.

    It's also funny that Gun Oil is not oil based, it's silicone based. Well not that funny, but good for a "huh".

    Silicone lubes are better than waterbased. If you want to get one for yourself, get a look on EdenFantasys.com

    I find all of these lubes to be grossly over-priced. The ingredients that they're made from are all very inexpensive and readily available through soap-making suppliers or bulk chemistry suppliers. If you have a little bit of mad scientist in you, mix up your own. Use the ingredients list of your favorites as the starting point and go from there.

    Invite your friends over to test the different experiments. icon_razz.gif

    Or, if you're boring, a whole gallon of plain old light silicone oil is about $40.

    You can't use a silicone based lube with the fleshjack, contrary to what the Spunk site says.
    Here's my recipe.
    1 or 2 tablespoons propylene glycol
    2 teaspoons J-Lube
    1 teaspoon xanthan gum

    Mix well the above in a 2 cup measuring cup (I use an electric hand mixer with just 1 beater). With the mixer on carefully add
    1 cup hot water
    and continue mixing well again; mix longer than you think you need to because you'll be unhappy after you pour it into its squeeze bottle and then notice white lumps. The lube will climb up the shaft of the beater so press it against the cup's edge to keep it down.
    I got my J-Lube from amazon:
    http://www.amazon.com/Jorvet-J0109-J-Lube-Obstetrics-10-Ounce/dp/B006G2S17A/
    As well as the propylene glycol:
    http://www.amazon.com/Essential-Depot-Propylene-Glycol-Quart/dp/B005F5OJG6/
    The xanthan gum you can get from amazon, or your local health food store; it's used a lot in gluten free recipes.
    I ordered the J-Lube and propylene glycol in September of 2013 (or maybe it was last year; for some reason I didn't order the J-Lube from amazon so I don't have a record for it) and the J-Lube is about half gone (and I spank the monkey almost daily and am generous with the lube with my fleshjacks).
    The J-Lube makes the lube extremely slippery. The xanthan gum isn't a requirement but it makes it thicker, without it it's quite watery, and the xanthan gum makes it less stringy (but you still do get them, just not as bad).

    Instead of xanthan gum, have you tried carboxymethylcellulose? That's the thickener in most water-based lubes and shampoos. You have to dissolve it carefully while heating and stirring, or you get lumps, so you'll want to make a large enough batch to be worth the hassle. You can strain out larger lumps with cheesecloth, but it's a bit wasteful. Carrageenan or Gellan Gum are easier to dissolve, but relatively more expensive.
