Lube isn’t one of those things that you just automatically NEED because our bodies make enough lubrication (typically). Sometimes things are beyond our control, and we end up needing some extra help, or just wanna add some flair to our sex life. I, personally, had to start using lube after my abortion procedure, which made sex painful for a long time and made me dry for a WHILE. I kept going to my GYN and they couldn’t figure it out, and just told me to use a good lube during sex.
Me, being the health freak that I am, decided I would ONLY use natural and organic lube. I went on a quest to find some GOOD organic lube, and when it comes to my vagina, I don’t mind shelling out some money for a good product. Astroglide is ok, but we have to reapply a few times, and it feels a tad oily. KY is just disgusting and there is nothing natural about it. Good Clean Love’s natural lube is pretty good, but is more like a gel and I wanted something a little more slick. Then I came across Sliquid Organics, which is a brand dedicated to ONLY organic and natural lubricants. I contacted the company and they sent out a few samples for us to try out.
Let me say that this brand is the absolute BEST lube brand we have come across. Sliquid has a number of different lubes in the natural category, and the same ones in the organic category. They also have a whole line of flavored lubes for oral sex. My FAVORITE of the bunch is the Sliquid Oceanics. It contains carrageenan, or seaweed extract, to provide extra slip and more skin healing properties, which is good if you’re prone to infection or enjoy more friction during sex, like we do.
The company sent us Sliquid Sassy, which is the usual natural composition but is thickened with plant cellulose to make it thicker, mostly for anal sex. It is made to last longer and stay in place. Hubs and I don’t engage in anal, but I sometimes do have to reapply once during sex. We haven’t gotten to the Sassy yet because we’ve been using everything else, but we will put it to use tonight.
We also tried the Sliquid Organics Sensations, which is like a warming/cooling lubricant made to heighten sensation. It contains aloe leaf juice, vitamin E, and green tea, but also menthol, which adds to the cooling feeling. It did heighten the sensation during sex, and it was pleasurable! Unlike the Fire and Ice condoms I hear of often… My ex roommate said they burn and to never use them. Noted.
There were a few more samples to try, from a hybrid lube formulated with silicone for longer lasting slick (a natural one and an organic one) to O Gel, which is made to heighten clitoral stimulation. Sliquid also has a line of flavored lubricants called Sliquid Swirl, once again all natural. There’s a pink lemonade one that seems like it may be sorta tasty!
Sliquid is my FAVORITE brand for lubricant. My vagina is VERY sensitive as I’ve written about before, and she hates everything. But, none of their lubes have irritated me, given me any infection, or cause any trouble. Added bonus that they’re all natural and/or organic! They all feel natural as well; they don’t clump up with use, and the feeling of the gel mimics my own natural wetness. It’s a perfect fit.
I am feeling pretty sexy tonight. So sexy, that I may even do Hubs’s favorite move. That SHOWS how hot I’m feeling, because I’m a lazy ass. Sliquid has definitely made me feel more feminine and like less of a sexual failure when my body isn’t working properly. Thanks y’all!
