Being a lubricant, this is a slightly oily and drippy, so you do have to take that into account. I had never used a lube, but this came highly recommended for use with a good vibe. Definitely a great recommendation! Whether or not you need a lubricant, I would definitely give this one a go. It has a very light odor, but in my opinion it was not unpleasant. Really heightens the experience and I was surprised at how much! Will be making this a staple!
