If you’re looking for the new frontier of personal lube, Silicone Lubricant is the answer. First used as the “secret ingredient” in pre-lubricated condoms, now you can buy silicone in a tube for slicking up your favorite sensual surfaces past where any water-based lube is capable.
We’re going to explore this fascinating new substance, and then focus on a formula of lube born in the U.S. military and used on the battlefield but now lives in dresser drawers across the world; a strange, but true story.
Unlike water-based lube, silicone never soaks into skin, so after a single application the slickness stays around. This allows you to keep up your activity for much longer than traditional lubes. It works especially well for areas where more lube is always preferred, like anal play.
There’s another nice side effect of silicone: it’s nearly 100 percent allergy free. If you normally get a rash from other lubes, silicone might be the answer.
One of our most popular silicone lubricants is Gun Oil. This same high-tech formula is based off a silicone weaponry lube developed by the United States military. Very popular among soldiers on the battlefield, eventually it was modified and re-released for love, not war.
As an ultra-concentrated form of silicone, Gun Oil lasts for the long haul and doesn’t absorb into skin. Since it doesn’t dissolve in water either, this lube is perfect for some frisky shower time play. The only real additions from the original military formula are Vitamin E and Aloe Vera to soften the skin while reducing irritation.
Since silicone is newer, it is slightly more expensive. But consider this: during any length of sexual activity, water-based lubes will need to be reapplied. In most cases, silicone only needs to be applied once; you can also get away with using a smaller amount in most cases.
Above all, you are getting superior lubrication. Once you experience the slickness of silicone, it’s hard to go back to the water and oil-based chemicals traditional lube has depended on. Go ahead and check out Caliente’s full selection. You won’t be disappointed.
NOTE: Silicone lubricant should not be used with toys as the silicone will break down and destroy the toy.
