My partner introduced me to Maximus after we got together and it has become my absolute favorite lube I’ve used to date. Sadly, it has been hard to find in the U.S. for sometime, but I’ve found that cheaplubes.com has it back in stock for the time being. Maximus is a bio-static, water based, and latex safe lubricant with the following list of ingredients: Highly Purified Water, Propylene Glycol, Cellulose Polymer, Di Sodium EDTA, Phenoxyethanol, Methyl Paraben, Ethyl Paraben, Propyl Paraben. Despite it not being paraben free I had zero issues using this lube, but if you’re sensitive to such things then it may not be for you.
Because it is bio-static is also inhibits the growth of microorganisms such as candida (yeast) or other bacteria. Hooray for a lube that helps keep you healthy! Also because of the high level of glycol Maximus helps you retain any natural moisture, which helps it be longer lasting than any other lubricant I’ve tried to date. These two things are pretty usedul requirements of my kind of lube.
My partner hates smelly and edible lubes even more than I do so when they assured me it had no smell or taste other than “lube flavored” I believed them, but that didn’t stop me from from both smelling and tasting it. Unsurprisingly my partner had been correct and that is something I really like about this lubricant. Maxixmus is also a gel formulation so it stays where you put it and doesn’t get dried out or tacky quickly, which is another plus for me because I HATE being interrupted to add more lube for any reason, but especially because it has gotten tacky or sticky. Even with fisting play we don’t have trouble with running out of lube and needing more with this one. So two more positives immediately.
I really can’t say enough good things about Maximus and I’ve nothing negative to say about it whatsoever. The one downside has been not being able to get it consistently due to some issues with shipping, but as I mentioned those are currently less of an issue thanks to the folks over at cheaplubes.com and that isn’t anything that reflects on the usage of the lube itself. If you’re looking for a good heavy gel lube with plenty of staying power this should definitely be your lube of choice.
