I'm normally a big fan of Astroglide, and I have no problems with it when it can sit safely upright on a nightstand or bathroom cabinet. However, every time I try and transport it, it leaks everywhere.

Is there a similar product out there with the same consistency as Astroglide, but in a different bottle? The flip-top design is just not working out for me. I know they have single-use packets of Durex lubes, but those are expensive and not really necessary. I just need a bottle that I can throw in my purse and not have leak all over everything.

Have you thought about just buying an empty bottle (I'm thinking of the ones sold for travel portions of shampoo, conditioner, etc) and transferring some lube into that? That way there's no need to switch brands, and you can pick a bottle with a lid that will prevent leaks.

The new Durex play ones have a twist-top - in one position, you can pump the top and lube comes out, in the other, it's locked and nothing happens. I store mine horizontally and have never noticed a leak. However, never having used Astroglide, I couldn't comment on the consistency, other than to say 'they're nice'. [Wink]

In a strange room, before you are emptied for sleep, what are you. And when you are filled with sleep you never were. I dont know what I am. I dont know if I am or not... how often have I lain beneath rain on a strange roof, thinking of home.
