Gun Oil H20 is our top choice for the best Fleshlight lube because it performs so well in so many different scenarios.
Is it super-slick and long-lasting? Check.
Easy to wash off skin and won’t stain fabrics? Check.
Hypoallergenic and made with Aloe Vera and Vitamin E? Yup!
Here’s a typical review of Gun Oil H20 over at r/Fleshlight.
I used Astroglide for 10+ years mainly for the convenience of being able to purchase it at Walmart (Gotta have those sex toys in the hotel room while traveling away from the wife!)This last Christmas, I purchased Gun Oil H20 to give it a try. I'm working my way through the 32 oz bottle, which is probably a years supply. I like the herbs and stuff that they put in the Gun Oil. I would swear that my dick feels softer now. - Mike in CO
Fleshlube Water was formulated specifically for using with Fleshlights—which it’s very good for—but it’s just as effective for penile-vaginal intercourse, manual masturbation—and any other penetrable TPE pocket pussies.
Compared to Gun Oil H20, Fleshlube Water is lighter and thinner. On your skin, it feels less “lubey“ and more like women’s natural vaginal secretions.
Lighter lubes like Fleshlube Water usually reduce friction better than gel-based lubes like KY Ultra-Gel, which makes them a good choice for men with girthy, thick, penises.
Slather some on your dick and squirt a drop or two into the orifice, and within a minute your own body heat will warm the lube inside the sleeve.
After you’re done jerking off, it's easy to clean up and doesn't leave a sticky-feeling residue on your skin.
What we like:
Easy to clean off skin and fabric
Non-staining and low-odor
Contains Vitamin E and Aloe Vera
3. Fleshlube Slide
Fleshlube Slide is the brand’s newest personal lubricant—and their first anal lube.
Besides offering excellent lubrication, it offers all the qualities we’ve come to expect from Fleshlube products: It’s long-lasting, washes off easily with water and doesn’t stain sheets or bedding.
It also contains Aloe Vera and Olive Leaf extract which make your skin feel soft and supple.
While Fleshlube Slide was formulated “for anal sex” and butt play, it’s perfectly safe for using with our favorite TPE male masturbators. The “anal lube” descriptor really just means that it’s thicker than normal lubes, which helps protect the butt’s delicate anal and rectal tissues.
Sliquid Organics Natural Gel is a surprisingly affordable organic lube made with 100% vegan ingredients that makes Fleshighting, anal and vaginal sex feel wonderful.
Made from Aloe Vera, it’s moderately thick and well-behaved, but not overly gel-like — An ideal lube for beginners without a lot of lube-shopping experience under their belts.
As an added bonus, it has a purple bottle that doesn’t look like lube, so if you accidentally leave it out, it just looks like massage oil or hand lotion.
Alternatives to consider
Pjur Aqua Premium Water-Based Lube
Manufactured by Pjur, a German company that’s mostly famous for making premium quality silicone personal lubricants with medical-grade ingredients, Pjur Aqua is an excellent water-based lube that tends to be pricy—though you can sometimes find good deals for it.
Pjur Aqua is one of the longest lasting water lubes I’ve ever tried—it dries out much more slowly than other water soluble lubes and requires less frequent reapplication than many cheaper drugstore-quality lubes.
It has no scent or fragrance and it feels light and silky, with a consistency that almost feels like a silicone lube.
A favorite in the FL community, Pjur Aqua is easy to clean, stain-free, and doesn’t leave a residue of lube boogers—a real benefit for uncircumcised guys with foreskins. It works great-but the higher-than-average price tag may not be cost-effective for your budget.
Sliquid Sassy is a thick gel lube that was edged out by Sliquid’s organic water-based lube in our recommendations. Sassy has a jelly-like thickness, which makes it perfect for easing big things into tight holes.
Fleshlight enthusiasts and sex toy aficionados of all stripes love Sassy for being one of the most versatile water-based lubricants on the market.
Whatever types of sex toys you like to play with — silicone, TPE, Superskin, metal, glass, anal, vaginal, penile —you name it and Sliquid Sassy will make it easier to penetrate.
Why lubrication is important
Using a Fleshlight without lube is like trying to fuck a baseball glove.
You can do it but it won’t feel good unless you have a baseball glove fetish.
The rest of us need lube to enjoy using our Fleshlights.
Many popular lubes can damage the the delicate Superskin sleeve material of a Fleshlight if they come into contact with it.
Oil-based, silicone, and hybrid lubes are incompatible with Fleshlights.
Over a short period of time, they will “melt” your sleeves, degrading the appearance along with the shape and feel of the orifice and textures inside.
Water-based lubes are the only kind you should use with TPE masturbation toys like Fleshies. Water-soluble and Aloe Vera-based lubes are the same thing with fancier sounding names.
Ingredients to avoid
If you’re even a little bit unsure about a lube, look at the label and ingredients list first to make sure it doesn’t contain any of the following words
What brands do you recommend?
Based on online reviews and recommendations, we’re planning to test Wicked Aqua later this year, but we know there are other body-safe, natural lubes out there, too.
