Jo All-in-One Massage Glide & Personal Lubricant

 

System JO Massage All-in-One Personal Lubricant 1.0 fl. oz

I purchased JO All-in-one Massage Glide on a particularly hot and humid day when my skin kept rubbing against each other. I needed something to help decrease friction, without spending tons of money. I went to a little sex shop and purchased it for $11 CAD. This saved me, and luckily for me, it gave me an excuse to write a review.

The one problem I encountered with JO massage glide is that I couldn’t use it with any of my toys, except for my Doc Johnson Ripply Butt Plug, as most of my collection is now silicone. As mentioned in previous posts, never use a silicone toy with a silicone lubricant, this will break down the toy.

JO all-in-one worked great, it stayed slippery for a while, majorly decreased friction, and didn’t feel sticky. I absolutely loved it, as the first silicone lube I have ever owned, I am glad to have bought it.

This glide’s thickness was good, it was neither watery nor goopy. It had a medium thickness that swayed toward the thinner side. It could cause a mess, but its not going to be shockingly thin and go everywhere very easily. On that note, This is definitely not a lube you want to keep in your purse. One of the only problems I really had with this was the packaging made it easy for lubricant to escape, and while grabbing my hair band out of my bag I found my bag’s contents to be quite slippery.

About coconut oil

Articles from Good Clean Love:

4 Reasons not to use coconut oil as lube

Reconsidering Coconut oil as lube  

Dear Good Clean Love, Thank you.

Before reading this article I was unsure as to why people shouldn’t use coconut oil for lube. As a concerned consumer who cares  about what goes into and onto my body, at first glance, coconut oil seemed great. Despite the fact that I couldn’t use it with condoms. Reading your first article started the conversation with my customers to find out if coconut oil was working for them.

As read, coconut oil doesn’t just kill bad bacteria, so one of the questions I ask my customers who use coconut oil is: Are you getting infections? If so, it may be because the coconut oil is killing the good bacteria and not leaving them there to fight for your vagina happiness.

The second question is: Are you using condoms? If so, it is recommended that you don’t use coconut oil as lube, as it isn’t condom compatible (this includes polyurethane condoms)

So, Good Clean Love. Thank you for saying what no one else felt bold enough to say. Basically, if it works for you, keep using it, but if you notice you’re having problems related to it concider switching to an organic and natural lube; such as Good Clean Love.

Sliquid Oceanics Infusion Botanique Lubricant

Sliquid lived up to all my expectations and more.

I used this for solo play, as I do find lubricant makes solo time much more pleasurable.

For solo use, it didn’t dry out on me, using less than a dime sized amount worked for an hour or so of use.

Sliquid is amazing for its natural qualities. There are no cancer causing chemicals or synthetics. It is very body friendly. I have suggested it for many women, because I have been able to check out the slippery-ness and what it feels like when dry, so I fully trusted it. So I figured it was time to put it to the test for myself.

 

Pros:

  • Organic ?
  • Natural ingredients ?
  • Stayed slippery for as long as I needed it without using much
  • Safe for all toys
  • Safe for condoms
  • Vegan ?
  • Great PH for fertility (6.7)

Cons:

  • Due to water based nature, will dry out faster than silicone lube; thus making it less optimal for anal.

 

I love this lube, it is my favourite. When it dries it moisturizes the skin, I have tried this with all water based Sliquid products, there is no stickyness at any point and dries into skin leaving it feel like it was never there. The best part of this lube is that it is so natural I actually feel good about using it.

Thank you Sliquid for caring about my body.

Never stop learning,

~Whimsy <3

Choosing the right Lube

My first question to anyone who comes in looking for lube is generally, is it for conventional sex, or more, and when they look at there boyfriend before responding and shyly saying no, I get to the point, “So no anal?”

All lubes aren’t the same. Different factors effect the type of lube that would be best for you.

Questions I ask:

  • Are you sensitive (to uti’s, yeast infections, allergies)

If yes, choose a hypoallergenic lube, with no PEG, Propylene glycol, glycerin or parabens. The more natural the better.

Examples: Sliquid Organics H20, Intimate organics defence, Blossom Organics.

  • Do you own silicone toys?

Q2TqBAaRiGEQbMErNzTY_LELO_INA-Wave_Product_Plum

If you don’t know, go with a water based and play it safe.

If yes, avoid a silicone based lube. Silicone based lubes break down silicone toys. Stick to water based or silicone safe hybrids.

  • Is staying wet a problem?

If yes, use a silicone based lube, they stay wet and slippery for longer than water based. If you own silicone toys and want a lube that will stay slippery for longer, use a silicone safe hybrid. Example of a silicone safe hybrid: Wet Silk

When in doubt – use water based. There are plenty of water based lubes available for any use, hypoallergenic, anal, flavoured, toy specific. Basically water based won’t harm your toys, is easy to clean off, doesn’t stain, and feels like natural wetness. You do have to add it more often, but hopefully as you get into it, it wont be nessisary.

Choosing an anal lube:

The anus doesn’t produce lubrication of it’s own so using lubricant is super important. When choosing an anal lube I suggest going with a thick, silicone based lube. This allows for your lube to stay slippery, and end up in and on the places you want it to be.

If you are trying to get pregnant:

There are lubes on the market specifically for people who are trying to concieve. Examples: Pre-Seed, and Astroglide TTC

If you want to use a regular lubricant during sex I suggest using a natural, organic, waterbased lube; such as Sliquid Organics Natural or Waterslide. The PH is closer to those in a trying to conceive lubricant.

Pros and Cons of different lube types:

Water based:

Pros:

  • Washes off body easily
  • More like natural body fluids
  • Doesn’t stain
  • Safe for all toys
  • Available in warming, cooling, tingling, and flavoured.
  • Also available in hypoallergenic, natural and organic.

Ingredients in some water based and hybrid lubes to avoid:

Polyethylene Glycol:

“pol·y·eth·yl·ene gly·col

Propylene Glycol:

According to the Environmental Working Group, propylene glycol can cause a whole host of problems. It is rated a 3 by them, which is categorized as a “moderate” health issue. It has been shown to be linked to cancer, developmental/reproductive issues, allergies/immunotoxicity, neurotoxicity, endocrine disruption, and organ system toxicity. It has been found to provoke skin irritation and sensitization in humans as low as 2% concentration, while the industry review panel recommends cosmetics can contain up to 50% of the substance. It has also been classified as “expected to be toxic or harmful” by Environment Canada.” -http://thegoodhuman.com/2009/03/31/what-is-propylene-glycol-and-why-you-should-avoid-it/

Hybrid:

Pros:

Ingredients and what they do:

Cyclotetrasiloxane: Can accumulate in aquatic organisms and act as a hormone disruptor. It also causes interference with hormone function in humans. There is a possibility that it can cause impaired fertility.

Cyclopentasiloxane: Similar to cyclotetrasiloxane, accumulates in aquatic organisms as hormone disruptor, also causing interference with hormone function in humans. Cyclopentasiloxane can cause uterine tumours and harm the reproductive and immune system. Lastly, Cyclopentasilixane may influence neurotransmitters in the nervous system.

Lube Review: Wet Naturals Beautifully Bare

WET Naturals Beautifully Bare

????? Great Product – Highly recommended

Yeyyyyyyy ! I am so excited to talk about this lube after my last experiences with lubes.

This was a great experience, I didn’t have to apply it very often after the initial application, I honestly forgot I was doing a lube review for about 4 minutes. After the review I was so excited to write this I hopped on my computer to start writing.

Pros:

  • HYPOALLERGENIC !!
  • Great for women with any allergies or sensitivitys
  • Natural feel
  • Stays wet quite long 🙂
  • No stickyness
  • No need to constantly reapply
  • Safe for all toys (including silicone)
  • Condom safe

Cons:

  • Contains PEG (see review of WET silk for info on PEG)
  • Dries out faster than a silicone based or hybrid lube. (Such as WET Silk or WET Platinum) But this is to be expected of a water based lube.
  • The fact that I’m telling my friends boyfriend I can’t think of any more cons for this list.

Great product WET. You truly impressed me this time.

 

 

Lube Review: Trustex Personal Lubricant (with aloe vera)

 

image

I typically don’t use lube, but seeing as the last time I used it (WET Silk) it really increased my enjoyment, I decided to keep trying some lubes out and see how it goes. Using this lube really let me see that there is credit due to WET. After the first bit of lube was used I immediately noticed a difference between the two products. It was clear to me that there would be some difference as WET Silk is a hybrid and Trustex is just water based, I still managed to wish I had used nothing this time. I personally found this lube irritated my skin, left me and my toys sticky, and generally annoyed me enough that I gave up and showered to avoid any infection. I didnt have a pleasant experience with it, the best purpose for this lube would probably be for oral sex as a flavour inhancer.

Pros:

  • Tastes good
  • Water Based
  • Condom Safe
  • Silicone safe
  • Aloe Vera

Cons:

  • Gets extremely sticky due to sweetner and water based nature
  • Dried out quickly
  • Contains propylene glycol, glycerin.

Lube Review: WET Silk

As an avid sex toy tester. I decided to check and see if WET silk was safe for my silicone toy. I came across this review of the lube and gave it a go myself.

Pros:
Very slippery but didnt take away from my experience
Using lube (vs no lube) made it much more enjoyable
Cleaned off body and toy easily

Cons:
Had a burning sensation at first, I’ll go ahead and blame the ingredient of alcohol for that one.
Contains many ingredients that I don’t nessisarily want near my kitty. Aka: 3rd ingredient: PEG-6
5th ingredient: Propylene Glycol

“pol·y·eth·yl·ene gly·col
noun
noun: polyethylene glycol; noun: PEG; noun: polyethyleneglycol
a synthetic resin made by polymerizing ethylene glycol, in particular any of a series of water-soluble oligomers and polymers used chiefly as solvents or waxes.” Google

“How Toxic is Propylene Glycol

According to the Environmental Working Group, propylene glycol can cause a whole host of problems. It is rated a 3 by them, which is categorized as a “moderate” health issue.

WET Silk ingredients:
Water, Dimethicone, PEG-6, Isopropyl Palmitate, Propylene Glycol, Glyceryl Stearate SE, Caprylhydroxamic Acid, Glyceryl Caprylate, Methylpropanediol, Hydroxyethyl Cellulose, Cetearyl Alcohol, Sorbitan Stearate, Polysorbate 80.

Make your own educated decisions. As this was a one off for the sake of fair review, don’t be overly afraid of it. Take your precautions like maybe not using it forever but live life.

Have fun,
