Remember in the dark ages when the only thing a sexual lubricant had to do was be slippery? Then we started asking questions about what the manufacturers where putting into these products that were being used in the most intimate of situations on our genitalia and in contact with our mucous membranes. That concern for safety and our wellbeing is the reason companies like Sliquid exist.
“Organics Natural” from the Sliquid range is free from parabens and contains no glycerine. Why? Well because glycerine can cause an adverse reaction in some people directly, or indirectly through bacterial/fungal deterioration of the product after opening. Parabens inhibit the growth of bacteria in all sorts of products from cosmetics to shampoos and much more besides, yet they have been linked in some studies to a number of health issues.
Now, you’d think that would make Sliquid expensive, but it doesn’t. In fact it’s about average for lube and I seriously doubted if I’d find anything good to say about the product. I mean it’s not too expensive, most of the ingredients are organic, paraben and glycerine free, vegan friendly and not tested on animals – so what’s the catch?
As far as I can see there isn’t one.
I first used Sliquid Organics Natural as a lube to test a masturbator and found it to be effective, long lasting, easy to clean from myself and the masturbator. It also avoided the problem I associate with most lubricants, especially the cheap ones, it didn’t get sticky after prolonged use.
The same applies during sex. Suze and I had been making love for a long time and you all know there’s a limit to how much natural lubrication your bodies will supply. A quick squirt of Sliquid and we were set to go again.
Being free from weird colours, fragrances, sweeteners and flavours this lube just does one job and does it well.
You can buy cheaper and you can buy lubes with flavours and in fancier packaging, yet why would you when Sliquid seems to tick every box?
Footnote: After testing this lubricant I actually met the CEO and driving force behind Sliquid at the Hanover eroFame show. He’s passionate about his products and will be sending more for us to review soon. So keep an eye on this site for more Sliquid reviews.
