When it comes to masturbation, one of the biggest differences in what can make or break a self-love session comes down to one thing: lubrication. Sure, you could masturbate without it if need be, but it’s not the most comfortable or pleasurable. Speaking from personal experience, a nice lube is all you really need to give yourself some insane, mind shattering pleasure. As I mentioned in my Pepee Lotion review, not only is lubrication a nice addition to your masturbation (try saying that five times fast!), it can actually be essential in ensuring comfortable penetration, especially with backdoor play.
Speaking of Pepee Lotion, to this day I am still quite fond of that particular lube, and I’ve been craving to find lube of a similar thickness closer to home. Most of the American lubes I’ve used or seen online are much too thin for my needs, rendering me unsatisfied and longing for the familiar clear bottle and orange cap I love so dearly. When I was browsing Astroglide’s website out of curiosity one night and saw they had a gel formula, my interest was almost immediately piqued. “Could it be,” I thought when glancing at the page, “a lube that’s similar to Pepee Lotion? In America?!” I was beyond excited when I saw that it was a thicker formula. Admittedly, prior to this review, I didn’t really have any experience with thicker American water based lubes. I only had experience with a brand called Shibari which I did not care for very much at all. Lo and behold, it turned out Astroglide’s site actually has a section where you can get a lube sample! (For the curious, you can do that right here.) Without a moment of hesitation, I requested a sample for the Astroglide Gel formula, waited a week or so, aaand… it came! I was eager to give it a try but ended up putting it off for some time until just a couple hours ago. How does this thick, gel formula live up to the thick wonder of Pepee Lotion? Is it even comparable? Find out below the cut!
