Center Stage Sexual Aid: Satin by Sliquid

January 24, 2013
The CSPH

41BPkrKfJZL._SY300_Each week, The CSPH takes a look at a sexual aid that can be so helpful for some people, that it needs to be highlighted. This week we take a look at Satin by Sliquid!
.
How does it work?
.
Infused with Aloe Vera and Carrageenan, this water-based lubricant can not only be used as a daily moisturizer, but also to keep things slippery during playtime. Satin’s daily use is intended for vulva owners who experience regular dryness, and a few drops can create comfort that feels similar to vaginal lubrication. As with all Sliquid lubricants, Satin is completely gluten-free and vegan, and without any glycerin or parabens that may be irritating for some vulva owners. This lubricant is also hypoallergenic and non-toxic, making it a great choice for anyone with sensitive skin.
.
Though Satin features a very light odor, mildly reminiscent of soap, this only seems to be noticeable when smelling the entire bottle. Satin also has a very slight taste, so be sure to try it and see if you like the taste before licking it off a partner. This clear lube also has a very cushiony texture, though I would opt for a thicker lube—like Sliquid’s Sassy—if you’re using it for anal play. As this lubricant is also a moisturizer, it simply absorbs into one’s skin, rather than becoming sticky over time. In addition, as Satin is a water-based lube, one can use a little bit of water to reawaken Satin and make it last even longer.
.
Important things to note:
.
Satin can be used with any toy, condom, or body part. It comes in a simple click cap bottle, and can also be purchased in single use packets.
.
Even though Satin is non-toxic and hypoallergenic, a few people may still have skin irritation in response to this lube. If you have sensitive skin, or have had irritation from other products that have Aloe Vera or Carrageenan in them, try a bit of lube on your thigh before bringing it into play.
.
Keeping it clean:
.
This lube can be quickly rinsed off in the shower, or can be rubbed in for moisturization. This lube also won’t cause any stains on clothing or sheets as it is water-based.
.
All in all, Satin is a great choice for anyone who wants a water-based lubricant or personal moisturizer, especially one featuring both Carrageenan and Aloe Vera.
