Independent User Review Of Elbow Grease Original Formula Cream Lubricant One Gallon Party Pail From The B. Cumming Corporation
If you’ve shopped for any kind of sexual lubrication lately, you will have discovered that there are a lot more options available today than just good old KY Jelly or Astroglide. Options are good, but sometimes all those options can be confusing. What is the difference between water-based, hybrid, silicone, and cream lubes? Does it really matter which you use? What’s up with the “paraben-free” and “glycerin-free” on the bottles? There’s a lot going on, and if you just want to get on with self or mutual pleasuring it does no harm to go back to basics and revert to the tried and tested All-American Lube - Elbow Grease Original Formula Cream Lubricant from the B. Cummin Corporation.
But first, a lecture on lubes, just to show that I know what I a talking about.
So let’s start with the basics, the four main types of lube:
Water-based lubes are the most versatile and come in a variety of textures, from thin and watery which are perfect for masturbation sleeves and donning male chastity devices, through ones which mimic natural body fluids, to thick and gel-like, which are good for toys and butt play as they provide more cushion and stay-put better. Water-based lubes will absorb into the body and/or dry during use, but a quick spritz of water or a little saliva will quickly revitalize them.
Water-based lubes can also be found in warming/cooling formulas for those who like a little more sensation in the mix, and this is also where most flavoured lubes are as well.
Silicone-based lubes are the long-lasting, uber-slick, waterproof workhorses of the lube world. These also come with a few textures, though not as wide a variety as found in water-bases. Also used by latex enthusiasts to aid in wearing as well as to shine skin-tight latex attire, a little bit goes a long way with these. The caveat with silicone lubes though is an important one - silicone lubricant is not compatible with silicone sex toys, because like dissolves like, and nothing is sadder than your favorite toy going weird.
Silicone lubes are tasteless, though the texture can be pretty strange in the mouth. I say it’s like eating butter, but apparently that idea is gross to a lot of people. It coats your mouth in a strange way that I don’t like, but apparently some folk do. I was a silicone lube devotee for most of my sexually active life, that was until I discovered Elbow Grease Original Formula Cream Lubricant. Just be careful, silicone lubes can be super slippery so spills and dribbles on a hard floor can be dangerous, and if you have round twisty style doorknobs, you can get locked on the wrong side of the door.
Hybrid lubes are relatively new on the market, though they’ve been around for a while now. These are a creamy blend of water-based lube with a small amount of silicone blended in to create a very soft and smooth lube experience. Often labeled as “silk” lubes, they were originally created for treating vaginal-dryness. While they contain a small amount silicone, they are generally safe with silicone toys due to the process of combining with the water-base, however you can use a condom over the toy if you are uncertain.
Unfortunately, hybrid lubes often have a very bitter acrid taste to many individuals. I’ve never been a huge fan of these, though I know many who absolutely swear by them.
Oil-based lubes are also super long-lasting like silicone lubes. They don’t dry out, and they are nice and slick against the skin. Oil lubes can cause some issues with vaginas, clogging pores for some or altering the pH which can lead to infection. Oil lubes are also a no-go with latex and polyisoprene condoms, gloves, oral dams, or inflatable toys, but can be safely used with FC2, nitrile gloves, polyurethane condoms and/or polyurethane dams.
Some oil based lubes might not be good for vaginas, the exception being Elbow Grease Original Formula Cream Lubricant, but they are all just dandy with anuses and penises and toys and for masturbation. Anal fisting? Oil lubes such as the ubiquitous Elbow Grease are the best-ever things for it. Do you enjoy butt toys and anal sex? Oil lubes eclipse water-based ones by far, particularly since most good butt toys are silicone the use of silicone lubes is out of the question without condom-ing the toy, which doesn’t always work.
I personally have switched over to exclusively using Elbow Grease Original Formula Cream Lubricant for anal play now, and my rear end is so much happier for it. What once was an impossible or uncomfortable dildo suddenly becomes my butt’s best friend, with Elbow Grease. Oil-based cream lubes are sometimes too narrowly described as fisting lube or male-masturbation cream, which means that not everybody gets to enjoy the undoubted benefits of Elbow Grease.
Desensitising lubes exist but I very rarely suggest them to anyone. You’ll find them in pretty much all the lube categories. They generally are made with benzocaine or lidocaine, which is the same stuff that you find in sunburn spray, treatments for teething baby’s gums, and some sore-throat lozenges. While harmless in small doses, large amounts can be risky to your health. Desensitising lube also prevents you from feeling pain, which is an important signal from your body which should be recognised, not covered up.
So now that we’ve covered the lubrication basics, here are some ingredients to watch out for. This is where the “paraben-free” and “glycerin-free” labeling comes into play.
First up- parabens. Parabens are a common preservative used in more products than you probably realise. Recent studies have caused a critical eye to be turned toward them, enough that several countries in the EU have actually banned their use in consumer products. The studies in question seem to indicate that high levels of parabens have been found in women with breast cancer, though a direct link has not yet been established. This uncertainty has led many companies to take a more cautious approach and remove parabens from their products, and many consumers are seeking paraben-free cosmetics, personal care products, and lubricants. Some people also have contact sensitivities to body products containing parabens.
Glycerin is a sugar-alcohol derivative and is a common ingredient in many water-based lubricants. Glycerin has long be the go-to ingredient for water-based lubes to create long-lasting lubrocity. Glycerin and other sugar derivatives are also common sweeteners for many flavored lubes. Unfortunately, glycerin and other sugar derivatives will often cause problems for many women, especially those who are prone to UTI’s and yeast infections.
So there you go. A lot of the things you wanted to know, and a few things you probably didn’t, about sexual lubrication. And to reiterate, for what it is worth my all round go-to favorite is Elbow Grease Original Formula Cream Lubricant.
