Its got spunk! Its got style!
Spunk Lube, It’s a bit of an odd name but it makes sense when you realize the majority of their lineup is meant to replicate ejaculate in both colour and consistency. The pure silicone version I have is a little different though, It’s clear rather than white and it’s not quite as thick as the hybrid silicone lube offered by Spunk Lube but I think that’s just due to the nature of silicone lubes. I was sent the 236ml(8oz) bottle to review but Spunk Lube offer tiny 59ml(2oz) containers all the way up to 3.78L(128oz) jugs! The 236ml bottle stand about 19cm tall and is pure black with the logo written on the side in green, the top has a snap top lid and on the side of the container the logo is displayed prominently with product info and ingredients listed around back.
Speaking of ingredients there are only 4 and my research didn’t find anything to be concerned about which is nice, You don’t have to worry about Glycerin, Parabens or other nasties with this lube. Often times companies will put sweeteners or flavour additives in to make the lube smell or taste better but these can cause bad reactions with certain people as well as generally not being the greatest thing to have slathered on your groin. If you are curious about what goes into lube and what you should look out for that information has already been compiled by people much more qualified than myself, Such as the Lorax of Sex in her post Adventure In Lube-Land.
Also worthy of mentioning is the interaction with Silicone lubes and various other materials, Generally speaking you do not want to use a silicone lube with silicone toys as the two materials react with one another and can cause damage to the toy, Although in theory if a toy is made from high-grade silicone and the lube is made from high-grade silicone there should be no interaction between the two, This hasn’t been entirely my experience but I do plan on doing some in-depth testing of this soon. Silicone lube is however completely compatible on Skin, Glass, Stone, Wood toys, and Latex Condoms
I don’t really know what I was expecting when I asked to try out a pure silicone lube, I guess I just expected it to be like water based lube but be slightly more resistant to drying out but I’m happy to report I was very wrong in that assumption.
Let me just say that this stuff is slick, Seriously Slick, Slapstick comedy sliding around the room slick and it’s wonderful. The first thing that really struck me as being significantly different with this opposed to water based lubes is that not once in using this have I ever had to reapply lube, It simply doesn’t dry out! 60+ minutes and it’s still as slick as when I first put it on. I decided to test how long it would actually take for the lube to start drying out or its performance started to dwindle, I put some on my skin and checked every 15 minutes and it took almost 4 hours before I noticed any significant change and even then I’m not sure if that was because the lube started to dry or because my skin started to absorb it, When it does start to dry as well it doesn’t go tacky either which is big plus!
While the lube is definitely thicker than most silicone lubes it was still fairly thin and the first couple times I applied it I ended up using way more than was required, Later I would realize that it wasn’t entirely because I poured too much out but that fact that you need so little of this stuff in use! A couple good-sized drops was all I ever needed for skin on skin sessions and for toys a little goes a very long way indeed.
Spunk says that their pure silicone lube is odor and taste free, And I would agree but I wouldn’t recommend getting any in your mouth as it has a tendency to coat your mouth like a film of oil, which brings me to the topic of cleanup afterwards, All that non drying super slickness has to have some sort of caveat right? Well cleanup is where this lube gets a bit tricky, Silicone lubes are non water soluble which makes them amazing for playing around in wet environments like the shower or hot tub but it makes them incredibly hard to wash off. When it came to washing it off of skin I found a good bar of soap where I could apply force to the area really helped get all the lube off but when it came to toys I couldn’t really find a method that consistently worked in a timely manner, Just keep washing until you don’t feel any more lube.
Final Thoughts – Spunk Pure Silicone Lube
Overall I have to say I was very pleasantly surprised by my first pure silicone lube, And by how different it felt and behaved vs water based lubes. Not having to reapply lube at all during a masturbation session was great, It felt somehow fancier than constantly having to reapply lube mid session. Using it with a glass toy was equally as satisfying providing an extremely slick surface to work with and easily became my favourite lube of choice when using the few glass toys I have.
The big negative with Spunk Pure Silicone and all pure silicone lubes is how hard they are to wash off when you’re done, So if you really dislike fighting with lube this might not be right for you, Personally I mostly use the lube just before or while I’m in the shower because then I’m already in the right place to properly clean everything off. But if you’re looking for a non drying, extremely slick lube I can whole heartily recommend Spunk Pure Silicone to be added to your lube collection.
