Until I received this wee 30ml bottle of Pjur MyGlide (along with a bottle of BodyGlide) in a review package, I was a Pjur virgin. I was obviously aware of the brand, but in all honesty I’ve always been happy with Sliquid so hadn’t picked any up.
MyGlide is a waterbased lubricant that’s aimed at women that supposedly has a warming effect. As many vulva owners will tell you, that can be hit or miss. There’s warming and then there’s burning, and it doesn’t take a genius to work out which effect nobody wants to experience.
The ingredients list is quite the horror story for those who actively avoid parabens and the likes. It’s all there; glycerin, alcohol and more parabens than you can shake a stick at. The warming effect comes from the addition of ginseng. German company, Pjur’s website says that MyGlide is colourless, odourless and tasteless.
I don’t know if it’s just my eyeballs playing tricks on me, but the lube appears to have a slight pink tinge to it. Stands to reason, given that one of the ingredients is called FD&C Red No.4, which I guess is a colourant.
And tasteless? Nope. There’s a super sugary tang thanks to the natural sweetness of glycerin. It isn’t overpowering, but it does have the kind of feel in the mouth that makes the tastebuds expect an accompanying flavour. For example, a couple of shots of vodka and a mixer. Yep, it tastes like watered down simple syrup to me. That’s always weird to taste in an unflavoured lube. MyGlide is, however, odourless, so at least that claim is accurate.
MyGlide’s consistency is pretty runny. The not very squeezy bottle makes application easier, as an overzealous squish would have it squirting all over the place. In use it does feel quite natural, and it isn’t sticky when it dries. During a fingers only masturbation session, I only had to reapply once, and then I only needed one or two drops. It lasted ages, and even during toy use/PIV sex, I don’t need a lot for it to do its thing.
You might notice that I haven’t mentioned a warming sensation yet. That would be because there wasn’t one. I paid attention to that aspect every time, cos I’m one of those people who like warming/cooling lubes and gels, but I felt absolutely nothing.
As a basic lube MyGlide is okay, but as a stimulating lube it’s rubbish. It didn’t work for me at all. As it’s supposed to be stimulating I can’t give it top marks, even though it’s pleasant to use in general.
If you’d like to see if it offers your vulva (or your loved one’s vulva) any tingles, you can pick one up here.
