This is the best lube, I've used. Beats SwissNavy and Gunoil big time; no nasty taste/smell like Astroglide. Never is sticky, doesn't stain and keeps things lubed up just as good as oil based. Silicon may be a little more slicker and last a little longer; but I would rather have quick clean up and no stains on the sheets! As advertised, there is no irritation with anal sex, I guess due to the natural ingredients. Highly recommended.
