I had never tried anal lube before this product, instead choosing to use a normal lube. I decided to give one a go and chose this product from Maximus based on its previous reviews. I bought the smaller 50ml bottle as I wanted to make sure it was worth getting an anal specific lube before I started buying huge bottles. It is also available in a 250ml bottle with pump top.
The lube arrived quickly and discreetly packaged by Lovehoney. The lube itself is in a small clear squeezy bottle which makes it easy to get out and to see how much you have left – no more grabbing for the lube in the heat of the moment to find there’s none left, d’oh! It’s water-based so not sticky and suitable for use with toys and condoms. It is also formulated to be bio-static; which according to Maximus means, ‘should it be exposed to any bacteria, yeast infection or fungal spores it will stop them spreading.’
We only used a tiny squeeze of this and it lasted a very long time – no drying out, which is essential during anal play! The lube is really really thick which provides a cushioning effect which felt great and made sure there was no pain for me. To give you an idea of how thick it is, I’ve attempted to take a photo of me squeezing it out of the bottle, the lube did not drop down but instead was sucked back up in to the tube when I stopped squeezing. This does make me wonder how easy it will be to get out once we’re near the end of the bottle.
When this runs out (which I don’t think will be for some time despite frequent use) I will definitely be buying the larger bottle – I am 100% converted to using an anal lube and this one seems fantastic for me.
