Lube, Arousal Nonconcordance, and You

If you and I are friends, there's a very good chance that at some point I have either given you lube or recommended lube to you. If we're really good friends, you've probably received a bottle of Sliquid. Here's why: Lube makes everything better. Pictured: Kindle screen showing the cover of Come As You Are by Emily Nagoski & bottles of Sliquid (Silk, Sassy, and Sea) laying on a faux sheepskin. "But I don't need lube!" It is possible that you don't need lube. You really may not, especially if you're never putting anything in your anus (or someone else's). You may go through your entire life with ...

Review: Sliquid Satin

Over Christmas, Spectrum Boutique sent me a bottle of lube that I've been wanting to try for years now: Sliquid Satin. What makes Satin so special? What is Sliquid Satin? Sliquid Satin is a water-based lubricant that's formulated with aloe and vitamin e, ingredients that are known for their moisturizing properties. It's a liquid and it's a bit thicker than Sliquid Sea or Sliquid H2O, though not as thick as Sliquid Sassy or Sliquid Organics Gel. Like all Sliquid products, it's formulated without parabens or glycerin, and is only slightly hypo-osmotic (but it's incredibly close to iso-osmotic, or nearly identical to vagina secretions).[1.

Special thanks to my Aloe friend Bulbasaur for assisting with my Penchant photo shoot. You wouldn't believe how hard it is to photograph white things, especially bottles. What is Penchant?

I'm going to split this tag up into categories. If you're just plain not interested in one of them, skip to the next section. I'm efficient like that.

Good Clean Love Bio-Match: Balance and Restore

When Good Clean Love contacted me about their products, I thought I was pretty well familiar already. I'd tried both their Almost Naked and Cinnamon Vanilla lubricants (both are excellent), and had been a bit disappointed by their Body Candy (couldn't taste anything). Then I saw two new products on their website: Bio-Match Restore Moisturizing Personal Lubricant, and Bio-Match Balance Moisturizing Personal Wash, available individually or in a handy kit. Ever the kit enthusiast, I had to try them. Good Clean Love Bio-Match Balance Before using Bio-Match Balance, I had never actually used a specialized "personal" or "intimate" wash before. To be honest, I ...
