Hey there. I got my hands on some Guar gum. Before that i had tried various regular lubes such as Astroglide and other brandnames. I also tried a homemade cornstarch lube which was pretty good but in the end it didn't really hold up for longer sessions.
It started to break down and become to watery due to the shear stress of cornstarch. IE: Raised shear stress amounts cause the cornstarch/water mixture to lower its viscosity.
Now, on to the subject matter i'd like to state that after using Guar Gum as a lubricant i'd advise you to never ever get a regular brand lube again!
Compared to Guar gum/water all the regulars i've tried are
I know that a lot of things are subjected to personal taste and so forth but this is different. Switching from regular lubes to Guar was like going from VHS to DVD. ;D
This stuff is cheaper than anything on the market including xanthan gum.
It's lubricating qualities are just great! I did a little experiment to test how long it took before i dried up without using the FL for , ehum , my purposes.
And 5 hours later, i checked on it. It was damn cold, but just as slippery as when i applied it.
Well, on to actually using it!
The resistance and slipperiness is fucking great! This as close as it can be to the "real stuff". It doesn't dry up.
When mixing it up,use a blender or similar in hot water. Just add as much water to get the texture you want and you're ready to go!
Considering how cheap it is i can't understand why one would want anything else. The place i ordered from was really fast considering it being in the US and me being in Scandinavia.
A container consisting of 220 grams cost me 4 dollars and 9 in total with shipping costs included.
All i have left to say is: don't hesitate to ge this right now! It's really great!
