Admittedly, I have never been a gushing cheerleader for Astroglide brand lubricants. That is, until now! Dude, this Astroglide X lube is the silicone-based shizz I’ve seriously been searching for since high school. Kinda makes me want to do a herkie while cheering, “Gimme an A-S-T-R-O-G-L-I-D-E-X! Woo!”
On most days, you won’t find a discerning lube user shouting from the rooftops about the magnificence of this very well-known brand of personal lubricants. But, could AstroGlide’s brand spanking new Diamond Silicone Gel formula be the gleaming diamond among their usual, “Dang, this is so sticky and runny,” rough?
In a perfect world, all lubes would be glycerin and paraben-free. But that’s simply not an option. These potentially dangerous ingredients give lubes certain qualities that we really love. So, when a lube comes along that takes away these problematic ingredients, we have to ask ourselves two questions: “Is it just as good?” and, “Is it just as safe?”
