Pjur Original Bodyglide

I keep trying different brands of silicone-based lube, not because I need to find a good one but more for reviewing purposes. This is because I have already found the perfect silicone-based lube for us and so far, no other silicone-based lube has been able to trump the brand that dizzyguy and I have relied on for years. But I keep trying because, ya never know, right?

Well, Pjur Original Bodyglide silicone-based lube is not the one that’s going to make us switch brands. Our tried and true Wet Platinum is still the best I’ve ever tried. Maybe it’s that I’m so hooked on the stuff because we’ve used it for ages but nothing else I’ve used has measured up.

Pjur Original Bodyglide silicone-based lube is OK. That’s it, just OK. My main complaint with it is that it didn’t last as long as our go-to lube. It began to dry up and the friction got uncomfortable before dizzyguy and I were done having sex. Our favorite silicone-based lube never lets us down like that.

Wet Platinum is runnier than Pjur Original Bodyglide and I mean that in a good way. Pjur feels really thick and hard to spread around, whereas Wet Platinum just easily coats everything it needs to. I suspect it’s this difference in viscosity that makes Wet Platinum last longer.

But that’s not to say that Pjur Original Bodyglide is a horrible lube. It’s just not the best for us. As compared to the various silicone-based lubes I’ve tried, it’s pretty average, performing much like those other brands. It did seem easier to clean off of our bodies than the Wet Platinum. It can take quite a bit of soaping up to remove all of that lube but I think this is part of why it lasts longer than the Pjur. I’ll take the tiny bit of hassle with a lube that’s harder to clean off but goes the distance. Then again, if you hate how hard it is to clean off silicone-based lubes, then you might like Pjur for that reason.

Most silicone-based lubes are comprised of the same few ingredients so, it’s a mystery to me how companies can make their brands feel so different from one another. Maybe it’s the ratios of the various ingredients that makes the difference. All I know is that even though Pjur has three out of the four same ingredients as our favorite lube, it doesn’t feel anything like it. So, obviously this isn’t a lube that I’m going to go out of my was to purchase. It works alright with my toys so I’ll use the remainder of the bottle for that purpose but it’s just not up to our standards for a lube that we use together.

  • I agree with your review, it was ‘meh’ for me, didn’t last long and left a bit of a sticky residue. Although their waterbased one was better for me but i still wouldn’t swap for these

    The difference from lube to lube is basically whatever that fourth (or sometimes fifth ingredient is, that’s what makes them feel different. The fourth ingredient in Wet Platinumn is Phenyl Trimethicone which is frequently used in hair products because of its conditioning properties and ability to (i’m quoting here) “increase slip”, that is what probably gives it the texture you like. I like uberlube and their fourth ingredient is Vitamin E, which is really nice on the skin. So, if you know you like silicone you can actually just start to get to know the functions of the “extra” ingredients and pick a lube you might like from there- like customizing!

    Something to note is that Pjur (along with Sliquid Silver) is compatible with quality silicone toys (do your spot tests!) whereas other silicone lubes (with fourth and fifth ingredients) are not.

    • Thanks for all the info. I have successfully used Wet Platinum with some of my silicone toys. I just don’t make a habit of it.

  • Heaven

    Does not sound like this will replace any of the ones I use either. I have 3 I enjoy for many different uses.
