OK, i was just reading the post about Safer Sex Kits, and it seems there's disagreement over lubricants, I assume this is down to personal preference.

However, i've asked about Astroglide over here in UK, and so far no one has got hold of it, lol maybe I travel in ucircles unaware of such products, maybe it's just not a product widely available in UK.However, K Y Jelly is the lubricant here, I read about it everywhere. So I'm really asking is - if you use K Y Jelly, then why? How do you think it's better then others. If you use another product, then why don't you like K Y?
Or if you know more about England, then is Astroglide a product avilable over here?

I didn't like KY cause for me it was too jelly-like and tended to clump up during/after use. So I switched to LIquid Silk, which as far as I know is actually made in the UK (I'm in the United States, but sex shops around here import it), and I've been much happier.

Liiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiquid Siiiiiiiiiiiiilk.

I'm with the Fabulous Erink on this one.

Truly, it just wins hands down in my book. I know people who like KY Jelly just fine, (and you are right, it is all about personal preference) but it felt a bit sticky to me.

Yup, Liquid Silk is an indigenous UK product . If you are in London, you can buy it or order it through the post from Sh!, the women's sex shop in Coronet Street, N1 (it's a very safe and friendly place to visit, and also a good source for dental dams). They often stock little sample sachets of various types of lube, so you could buy a handful of sachets and see which you prefer.

Lube preference (like everything else) is a very individual thing, but Liquid Silk does have a lot of fans.
