I’m a huge fan of silicone lubricants, especially as it applies to anal play, oral sex, and hand jobs. It can be a wonderful addition to many kinds of play time, and it’s my favored kind of lubricant to use for any sex act except penis-in-vagina sex. Penchant was kind enough to send me their brand new silicone lubricant to try.
A little bit about it: Penchant Premium silicone lubricant is a basic, clear silicone lube without parabens. It’s that simple.
What I loved: Long ago, I attended a workshop with renown sex educator, Ducky Doolittle (who remains one of my sex ed heroes). In it, she made a suggestion that I had never heard of: while performing oral sex on a penis, add some silicone lubricant to the shaft and rub your hand along it while your mouth stays closer to the top. It was a game changing suggestion and nothing like I had ever heard. I tried it, and boy howdy did it make a difference. It felt better for him, and felt like less work for me.
Penchant’s lubricant works fantastically for this. It’s long-lasting, and so I rarely have to reapply it (maybe once or twice during a 30 minute bj). The lubricant is slick and smooth, and isn’t sticky. It doesn’t have any sort of taste or smell, so that if I accidentally get it into my mouth, it’s no big deal.
Its long life means it’s also fantastic if you like to do any sort of anal play whatsoever. Not much is needed, it spreads easily, and it doesn’t need to be reapplied too often, cutting down on the time play has to stop in order to adjust.
What I didn’t: I don’t really like using silicone lubricant for vaginal sex, but that’s a personal preference thing, and nothing to do with the lubricant itself. Also, remember that silicone lubricants can react negatively to silicone toys. Always do a patch test first, or stick with water-based lubes for your silicone toys.
Final thought: At $25 a bottle, Penchant Premium is admittedly pricey compared to water based lubricants, but the price is pretty on par with high quality silicone lubricants. I would definitely say this lubricant is completely worth it.
