One of my favorite things about the holiday season is pomegranates. No joke! I buy them by the half-dozen and enjoy eating each little tasty jewel one at a time in the evening. So I’m proud to say that I’m part of the recent trend of pomegranate-happy consumers. As such, I was overjoyed to see a pom-strawberry flavored lube from one of my favorite brands, Sliquid.

Those familiar with Sliquid products won’t be surprised to hear that their Swirl Strawberry Pomegranate is a lube that works great and is body-happy. It’s free of glycerine, sugar, parabens, gluten, and is vegan, so it’s just fine to use for whatever intimate purposes you intend. It has a strong, enticing fruit smell that isn’t overpowering. Its taste is sweet without being syrupy, and it blends well with the natural intimate taste of a woman, which makes it an excellent lube to use if oral sex is on the menu. Plus, since it’s more high-quality than many flavored lubes, it’s adequate for other types of sex beside, as well. Finally, the bottle is cute and nicely packaged, so you can leave it on your bedside table without scandalizing the babysitter.
Those who like a thinner, lighter lube will be pleased as pomegranate punch with Sliquid Swirl. Those who enjoy thicker, more ultra-slick lubes, however, may want to use Sliquid Swirl for oral play and add a gel water-based lube for penetration. Sliquid Swirl does pretty well, but most flavored lubes tend to have a thinner consistency and are better at tasting than lubricating, and that rule still applies somewhat here.
Still, Sliquid Swirl is a sweet-smelling and -tasting lube that is great for oral sex, and those who tend toward thinner lubes will find it also appropriate for penetration, as well.
