Lubrication 102 Continued: Product Review System JO

Lubrication 102 Continued: Product Review System JO

As promised, here’s a follow-up to Lubrication 101 , with details about my current favorite brands. So what are my favorites?  As discussed in Lubrication 102 Part 1,  at the moment I like two different brands:  Kama Sutra and System JO.  Both families of products I prefer because they are formulated for women, and have products that do not contain sugars that could promote yeast infections (which other products that taste sweet or are flavored do have). I use the JO silicone product when we have a longer play time and hence a longer period of time that irritation and friction can occur.  And I prefer coconut oil when I just want a break from chemicals all together, but it is a finicky product which some people have allergies (more on that in another post).  (For more details on Kama Sutra products, see Lubrication 102 )

Tips: looking/ trying out lubrications can be expensive.  So I would recommend trying the smaller size first.  You can normally find these in sets or as single items at or local toy store, or for discrete and simple shipping an online try EdenFantasys.com a sex toys store for women http://www.edenfantasys.com/sex-toys-for-women/.  You can even find the Kama Sutra products at some drug stores.  And if you have sensitive skin, I would recommend taking a shower or rinsing off the lubricant after play time is over, to reduce the possibility of irritation, even when using products designed specifically for sensitive skin.

Product: System JO H2O lubricant

Pros:   System Jo H20

  • Very thick for a water based lubricant
  • Good for extra lubrication during self-play or sex
  • Good for sensitive skin
  • Unscented
  • Safe to use with condoms
  • Washes off easily
  • Contains no oil or wax
  • Absorbs into skin, and does not clump up
  • Doesn’t get tacky or sticky
  • Designed to not stain the sheets
  • Thicker than most other water based brands, so don’t need to reapply as much
  • Top can be opened with one hand

Cons:

  • Contains glycerin
  • Contains Paraben (a preservative)
  • More expensive than other water based sensitive skin brands.

If there is a lot of friction, created by a condom or simply the type of sex occurring, you have stop to reapply. But the pump action makes this easy and it doesn’t get all over your hands in the process.

As with all lubricants, if used day after day (i.e. you are having sex every day) it can cause some skin irritation.

My Devina’s Preferred Uses:

  • Self-Play, safe with toys
  • Sex with medium amounts of friction occurring
  • I have a small travel size bottle I take with me for overnight trips, and if I’m out in a secluded spot in nature with my man

Note:  I would recommend considering using a 1 oz.  travel version to see if you like it.

Product: System Jo Agape for Women (water based)

Note: The System Jo Women line was created by women for women and contains higher quality vegetable Glycerin (preservative) because animal based glycerin has been shown to cause yeast infections & irritations.

 

Pros: System Jo Agape

  • The pump bottle makes access easy and non disruptive during sex
  • Good for extra lubrication during self-play or sex
  • Unscented and contains no sugars
  • Safe to use with condoms
  • Design specifically for sensitive skin or women prone to yeast infections and irritation
  • Contains no Glycerin, Oil or Silicone
  • Absorbs into skin, and does not clump up
  • Designed to not stain the sheets
  • Top can be used with one hand
  • A little bit goes a long way

Cons:

  • More expensive than other water based sensitive skin brands.

If there is a lot of friction, created by a condom or simply the type of sex occurring, you have stop to reapply. But the pump action makes this easy and it doesn’t get all over your hands in the process.

My Devina’s Preferred Uses:

  • Self-Play, safe on toys
  • Sex with some friction occurring

Note: Because this product is more expensive, I would recommend considering using a 1 oz  travel version to see if you like it.

Product: System Jo Premium lubricant (Silicone)

System Jo PremiumPros:

  • The thickest viscosity I have seen so far
  • Good extra lubrication during sex, especially if friction is occurring from condoms
  • Great for water play
  • Unscented and contains no sugars
  • Non allergenic, and won’t clog pores
  • Not sticky, does not clump up
  • Thicker than the water based version
  • Contains Pharmaceutical Grade Silicone
  • Safe to use with condoms
  • Top can be opened using one hand
  • Washes off with gentle soap and water

Cons: 

  • As with all lubricants, if used day after day (i.e. you are having sex every day) it can cause some skin irritation.
  • As with all silicone lubes, do not use with Silicone toys (but can be used on plastic toys).
  • It is more expensive than other brands. However, depending upon the use, I feel it is money well spent.

My Devina’s Preferred Uses:

  • This is my go-to brand to extended play dates.
  • Sex where friction occurs such as long periods of play time or when using a condom
  • Water play

Note:  I would recommend considering using a 1 oz. travel version first to see if you like it.
