Silicone-based lubes are similar to water-based lubes, but are generally much greasier and last much longer, despite having a thinner texture. In fact, that’s their main advantage: silicone-based lubes take ages to dry out. No muss, no fuss, no need to reapply.

What’s more; you can actually use them in water and they’ll still work. They’re not quite as easy to clean up as water-based lubes, though. Those who don’t like silicone-based lubes say that using them is like having motor oil slathered on your bits. Others swear by it.

Popular silicon-based lubes include:

Wet Platinum: By the makers of Wet, naturally, this is high quality and very long-lasting.

Eros Bodyglide: It’s almost identical to Wet Platinum, but more expensive.

ID Millennium:ID Millennium is a good lube, but not quite as smooth as Eros or Wet Platinum. It’s still a good choice, however.
