    Don't they have lube-wrestling events at bars from time to time?

    BTW, you could make that for a lot less than $67K. About two kilos of carboxymethylcellulose and a couple gallons of glycerin in 100 gallons of water. Maybe a gallon of silicone oil. And a spoonful of sodium dodecyl sulfate. Maybe about $200.

    (Yes, I have mixed up my own, but for some reason, guys were scared to use it. I guess I need some more attractive dispenser bottles instead of an erlenmeyer flask icon_rolleyes.gif )

    Although don't um, take that recipe literally. For one thing CMC won't dissolve in cold water, so you could make a really big mess.

    Did I see "Mr Wet Platinum" Man's hand sneak over to Davey's thigh near the end of the pool scene?icon_eek.gificon_cool.gificon_lol.gif

    BTW: I'd like to jump in with them!

    You can't be embarrassed by someone else, that doesn't make any sense.


    I think he meant embarrassing to the entire gay population

    I think he's funny. And even before I saw a few of his videos, how did I know he was a bottom? And why do I suspect he's a verbal bottom? I'd like to give him something to squeal about.

    Just kidding! I'm happily spoken for.

    This was a PR stunt. They solicited Dave, he accepted their fat check, and there you have it.

    Unfortunately, it didn't generate the number of views that they were expecting, and gay print media didn't bite nearly as much as they were hoping, but who cares! David's cute as hell, and I'm sure he didn't mind the lackluster marketing performance one bit ('cause of that nice wad o' cash).

    Too bad Wet products suck. Shit gets sticky too fast and tastes like petroleum Jell-O. What queer decided to develop Wet? For crying out loud, K-Y performs better than Wet, and that's saying a lot.

    Eros Silicone or bust!

    not to mention that depending on the friction involved, the silicone in the lube turns into black rubber.

    Since there's no chance Wet would spend more than 67k on a single PR event, they didn't. Im kind of surprised they would imply that their product is worth so much less than the retail price--does anyone buy lube out of brand loyalty?

    Haha, still that was really nice for a quasi-ad. And yeah, Im all for Davey being able to make a living out of youtube.

    I'm pretty sure the only difference between K-Y and Wet is the amount of glycerin in the mix. Maybe some flavoring. (n/m I got off my ass and looked it up. "Wet" has a more complex mixture, but it looks like the main thickener is polyacrylic acid. Yeah, that gets pretty sticky.) I do prefer lubes with silicone, but they are impossible to clean up. And silicone oil will not turn into back (i.e. butyl) rubber. The CMC, which is the main ingredient in most "water based" lubes* will dry up and make little sticky rubbery crumbs. If they're black, that's a problem with your plumbing icon_eek.gif

    I know, TMI.

    * some of them might use carboxyethyl instead of carboxymethyl cellulose, but it makes little difference. Might be a little less sticky.

    Thoughts on I-D Glide, or others?

    ART_DECO saidThoughts on I-D Glide, or others?


    You can think of these things as all being about the same as shampoo, except with little or no detergent and more glycerin and thickeners. Just different proportions of the same few basic ingredients. The standard, K-Y is the simplest formula - similar to my post above. The more expensive ones seem to have more glycerin and complex mixtures of glycerin-like ingredients. Whether that is "better" or just getting around copying someone else's formula, I don't know.

    I-D Glide (water based) appears to have more glycerin and glycols and less thickeners than Wet. And the thickener is modified cellulose, rather than polyacrylate. (Both of these can be sticky - I'm not sure if one is "better.")

    It seems like we need to devise a standardized fuck test in order to compare these different lubes. We would need to specify a standard stroke, angle, speed, depth... I'm thinking rooms full of twinks lined up on standardized calibrated cots, stroking away in unison...

    I do find a higher glycerin percentage works better for me, especially for masturbation. And I-D is one I buy, but there could be better solutions out there I haven't found yet.

    And I must admit I'll collect as many free samples of whatever I can get, at Pride Fests and elsewhere. I-D & Wet usually have a very visible presence at gay prides, you see their cardboard trash bins every few feet.

    Obviously, I'm supposed to be writing a report on something completely different at the moment. WTF. The post office is still open for another hour.

    Looking at these ingredient lists, I think I'd choose ID-Glide next time I need a water-based lube. But, you know, the proof is in the fucking.

    Also, like all personal care products (and especially bodybuilding supplements) the manufacturers use all kinds of synonyms and abbreviations to try to make their formula sound different, or "less chemical" (WTF-ever that's supposed to mean.) And although they have to list the general kind of polymers, the actual ingredient can vary widely in the degree of polymerization or hydration or methylation, etc. They can keep all that as a trade secret. As well as the exact proportions of the ingredients.

    For large volumes, like lube wrestling, try J-Lube. It's a veterinary product, a powder that you dissolve in water, and you can make gallons of it very inexpensively.

    This video is old news, but, funny, nonetheless.
