One of the sponsors at Eroticon 2013 was Yes Organic Lubricants.

What makes Yes revolutionary?
The founders of Yes set out to create intimacy products which would outshine the category. It has taken three years of profound research and creative development to create lubrication which:
- Offers exceptional performance without compromising purity
- Is non-derivative, having a new concept formulation which is totally unlike the tired well worn variations on silicone or glycerin based lubes
- Is based on an ingredient with a outstanding (6,000 year) pedigree as a healing skin food
- Has powerful moisture retentive properties
- Is bio-adhesive to mucous membranes (inner skin environment)
- Is composed of other organic, cosmetic and food quality ingredients
- Is actively nourishing of the mucous membranes
- Has a sublime consistency
- Is as nature identical as possible
- Does not expose intimate parts of the body to potentially damaging synthetic chemicals
- Can be dispensed discreetly and efficiently
- Deploys a valve closure which is hygienic and reduces the amount of preservative required
- Is packaged in an aesthetic way
- Can look stylish enough to be happily bought and left on display
- Offers all the reassurance of a natural product, with the premium performance of a synthetic one
- Changes your world from the inside…
I received two samples of lubricant to test – water based and oil based. Recently I set out to test it.
Each of the samples I have received are in a 25ml bottle. The water based lubricant has a silver top and the oil based has a golden top. Each of the small bottles were packed in a separate box. The box mentions whether the lubricant is water based or oil based and each box has ‘intimate lubricant’ printed on it. The guarantee that the product is pure and natural, as well as organic, is also printed on the box.
Below you can see the key differences between the Yes water based and oil based lubricants:
|Water based lubricant||Oil based lubricant|
|A unique dual purpose vaginal moisturiser and lubricant. For topical use to relieve discomfort or as a sexual lubricant.||A strong, long-lasting lubricant, giving additional protection for dry and sensitive tissues.|
|Formulated from water-retaining plant polymers to rehydrate delicate tissues.||A natural alternative to synthetic chemical lubricants such as silicone or vaseline.|
|pH balanced to maintain the typical vaginal environment and combat thrush & irritation.||Suitable for use as an intimate massage oil or all over the body.|
|Provides intensely realistic lubrication.||Contains sweet almond oil, shea butter and cocoa butter for exceptional skin conditioning.|
|Highly effective in treating the symptoms of vaginal dryness.||Can protect and feed dry vaginal tissues. Will not, however, rehydrate vaginal tissues.|
|Condom compatible.||NOT latex condom compatible.|
|Available in applicators.||Not available in applicators.|

My experience & opinion
I started off with the water based lube. It was quite fluid. The drop I put on my finger almost ran down the sides of it. I quickly applied it to my left wrist and started rubbing it in. My skin quickly absorbed the fluid. My skin felt soft where I have applied the lube and it was dry. No stickiness at all. I smelled my finger and wrist, but could not smell anything. Yes claims that the water based lube is free of any smell and this is true.
Next I tried the oil based lube. This was thicker than the water based lube and almost looked like there were tiny grains in it, which of course it did not. I had a tiny ‘drop’ on my left index finger, which I applied to my right wrist. I was instantly surprised. The moment I started rubbing it onto my skin, the lube spread out like a creme. Yet again my skin absorbed it and it felt soft afterward. It did not feel sticky at all, but my skin felt less dry than when I used the water based lube on my other wrist.
Next of course I wanted to try the lubes while I was masturbating. I first tried the water based lube. The same as when I applied it on my wrist, the water based lube dried up rather quickly. It felt good and soft, but still dried up too quick to my liking. Next up was the oil based lube. Where I already had the idea that this would be my favorite, now I was totally convinced. It felt so good and lasted so long. Actually, I stopped touching myself long before the lube has lost its effect.
I definitely am a fan of these lubes. My favorite, as you can see from the previous paragraph, definitely is the oil based lube. I just love the soft feeling it leaves on my girly bits. It literally still felt soft hours after I masturbated. Please do not get me wrong, the water based lube is fine too, but I would have liked it to last longer when I used it.
What I really like about both these lubes is that they are entirely organic. Their ingredients is the key difference between Yes and other lubes. The ingredients are designed to enhance sexual health. The pH of Yes water based lube is important for vaginal health to help prevent bacterial vaginosis and thrush. Yes oil based lube is a safe, long lasting alternative to silicone lubes, but should absolutely not be used with condoms. Yes oil based lube leaves vaginal and penile tissue feeling wonderfully nourished and luxurious.
Please note that I have not been paid to do this review of the Yes Lubricants.
