ID Glide provided for review by productEROTICA.com
Frankly, we have such a large stash of lube samples that it can be hard keeping track of what we’re using and when – unless of course one of them stands out as being especially bad – and ID Glide could rather easily get lost in the mix were it not sent to us in a blue, convenient squeeze bottle.
ID Glide is pretty standard, which isn’t necessarily a bad thing, because I’m speaking of a good lube standard, not a “you used THAT?” standard.
It’s clear, water-based, odor-less, and virtually tasteless. There’s a sharp tinge of generic chemical taste initially, dissolving into nothingness after a second or two. I wouldn’t recommend using it for oral sex because of the weird chemical taste, but it’s not altogether abhorrent either so if you accidentally get some in your mouth, more than likely it won’t significantly interfere with the moment.
The consistency is the same as that of many water-based lubes – it’s slightly slippery and slightly runny. ID Glide is a bit more substantial than some other lubes we’ve tried, such as pjur Woman Aqua, but definitely not to the level of a gel lube.
I have sensitive skin and it didn’t negatively affect me in any way. Nor did it dry to a tacky film. It did dry up fairly quickly on us (example: over the course of two hours, we had to re-apply three times), BUT my body does not self-lubricate very well at all. Even when I am really, really turned on and my clit is swollen and my ass is up like a cat in heat I am as dry as overcooked chicken. Fact of life.
In short, a little did not go a very long way for us, but it might for you depending on your body.
As with all water-based lubes, you can use this with your beloved silicone toys without damaging them and you can also use it with latex, as mentioned on Product Erotica’s site description of ID Glide Squeeze Bottle.
Although ID Glide is not a really remarkable lube, it still fulfills its purpose well. It provides non-irritating lubrication that is safe for my toys and latex, and makes sex comfortable without removing the necessary friction/tension/OMG. If you want a thicker lube, a longer-lasting lube, or one that tastes as good as it feels – you’ll need to look elsewhere.
Based on the design on the bottle, I expected the worst. It looks pretty generic and my experience with generic has been that it is gross and worthless. ID Glide is neither of those. It is also not terribly remarkable.
As Mimi said, it is colorless and almost tasteless. For me, it is just the right consistency because it is easy to dispense but it won’t drip off of whatever I happen to be applying it to. It does dry out more quickly than I would like, but that is not a huge issue. The bottle is usually within reach.
The bottle itself has some funky grooves in the side that I believe are indented to be finger grooves. This is unnecessary at best and uncomfortable at worst. Some marketing guy wasted his time.
Probably the same marketing guy wrote the blurb on the back of the bottle which claims that you should apply it to the genital areas for “lubrication and pleasure.” I think that’s a first. This lube claims that the mere application will bring you pleasure. I call shenanigans!
Strangely, I’d be fine if it claimed that you should apply to genitals for super sexy fun times….
