“Wet” “System JO” “Foreplay” “KY” “Swiss Navy” there are hundreds of different brands of lubricants out there in the world. Water, oil, and silicone based. Warming, cooling, and flavored. The question is, “What is the best lube?”. Most people, when choosing, want a lubricant that doesn’t get sticky. If you have used lubricants before, then you know what I mean. Sadly most lubricants just end up that way!
Most people opt out for water based because they tend to be cheaper. If you think about it, the water based ones will end up absorbed in the skin and dry out faster, so you will have to use more than you probably intended to. The best water based lube I recommend is called Slippery Stuff. You can’t beat the price on it, and you normally can use less than you would with any other water based lube. Also, System JO makes for a really great option. Those are the top two that work well without the sticky mess. Wet 4-in-1 Fun Flavors is a good product as well because it’s a lubricant, massage, warming, and flavored. Two water based lubricants I would not recommend are Astroglide, because it gets sticky, and KY original formula because it has been known to cause yeast infections in women. But KY is a decent brand for anal.
For silicone lubricant I think the best out there is Wet Platinum. The price is a little higher than a water based, but it is extremely worth it. System JO makes great silicone lubricants that I would recommend also. Those are the top two silicone based lubes that do not get sticky. I should mention if you choose and oil based lubricant you cannot use it with latex toys, or latex condoms. It can create tiny holes in the latex.
For anal sex most customers are looking for a desensitizing lubricant. Anal-Eaze is the top choice. It’s priced fairly and it gets the job done, hopefully pain free, if it’s used right! People tend to scare away from it because we have Cherry Flavor Anal-Eaze. When they ask me why it’s flavored, and I explain that it’s for people who enjoy ass to mouth sex they look at me in disgust. I’m not telling you to do that. I’m just answering your question. If you don’t want to know, then don’t ask!
These are just my opinions. When you shop for a lubricant you should buy small bottles, or one-use packets if possible, to see what works best for you solely or you and your partner.
Happy gliding! 😉
