Masturbation, jacking off, beating the salami, wacking the rooster, or whatever you want to call it – if you want to have the best experience then you need to have a good lube. After some testing and hard work (well, kinda), we made up a list of the best lubes for masturbation.
Masturbation not only feels great but is also good for your health! If you are looking to jack off, then you want a lube that feels good, is easy to clean up and isn’t going to cost you much money. Considering the price, feel, and quality, these are our picks of the best lubes for masturbation you can buy this year.
Arguably the most important feature in choosing a lube for masturbation is its feel. When it comes down to it, almost all lubes offer a similar feeling in terms of lubrication. What sets these lubes apart is the included sensations that can bring masturbation to a completely new level. This makes added sensation lubes some of the best lubes for masturbation you can buy – period.
If you jack off a lot then you probably know that masturbating can sometimes get a bit… boring. That is why I am a big fan of sensitizing lubes.
Climax Bursts is easily my top pick in this category because it will give you a tingling sensation that will make you cum extra hard.
The small red bubbles will actually “burst” as you use them giving you a tingling sensation that isn’t too overpowering but really adds to the fun. If you are looking to change things up, and want a little more feeling, then Climax Bursts is really worth the buy.
There are also a number of other sensations including Warming, Cooling, Tingling, and more, each with its own unique feel.
MQ Reader Review:
Love It – “The whole time it was a cooling sensation and when I climaxed, it was like an explosion in my body coming out my penis! Wow. I took a chance on this product not knowing what it was like, but now, I would not even think of getting anything else.” – Dave
For the best value, the masturbation 3-pack gives you three different sensations: cooling, warming, and tingling, which lets you really experiment. Best of all, bundled together they will save you a bit of money too.
Instead of a tingling sensation, Mood has a warming feeling that takes effect pretty quickly after you start using it.
A single bottle is relatively inexpensive for 4 oz especially if you are looking to experiment.
Again, it isn’t overpowering, but if you have built up some stamina, or are usually slow to cum, this will probably push you over the edge pretty fast.

Feels Awesome – “This lube is great while masturbating for a little extra sensation. The warming feeling is a nice change and really mixes things up. I highly recommend it!” – Tim
Mood also comes in a 5 pack of different sensations:
Warming, Cooling, Sensitive, Silicone, and Water, all giving vastly different solo experiences. It is a collection of the 5 Best Lubes for Masturbation.
ID lubes are some of the most popular lubes. I have always been a fan of their classic water formula, but if you are looking to masturbate, then the Sensation line offers the same quality lubrication but with extra feeling and stimulation.

ID Sensation comes in 2 variants: Warming and Tingling. Both provide a unique feel and a surprising amount of added sensation and are some of the best lubes for masturbation.

Best Water Lubes for Masturbation
Water-based lubes are some of the best lubes for masturbation because they are closest to our body’s natural lubrication. Water lubes often come in large quantities, are inexpensive, and are the closest feeling to the “real” thing. So if you want the best lube for jacking off, then water lubes are really the way to go. This means they feel the most realistic and will give you the most stimulation. Not to mention they are more affordable and clean up easily with soap and water.
I have been a long-time fan of Gun Oil because it is one of the most durable, heavy-duty and long-lasting lubes you can buy. This means that for masturbation, Gun Oil H2O is the best water lube I have ever used for jacking off and one of the best lubes for masturbation.
It has a smooth consistency literally glides over the skin. Gun Oil is a bit more than some other brands, but the slight increase in cost is well worth what you get for quality.
MQ Reader Review:
Love This Product – “It stays very slick for a long period of time for a water base. The fact that it comes in such a large size makes it convenient so I’m not ordering lube every couple of weeks. I also love the name. ” – Eric
Gun Oil also comes in pretty big bottles up to 32 oz meaning that it will last you for a very long time.
If you want something even more slick and heavy-duty, then I recommend looking at Gun Oil Silicone which is even more slippery and does not dry out… ever… So, if you don’t mind the extra hassle of cleanup, is well worth a look.
Smooth and Slick has always been my go-to cheap lube because it is slippery, slick, and is one of the cheapest, quality, lubes out there. Its low price means that you won’t be afraid to use it in big quantities and its feel and consistency make it perfect for masturbation and solo fun.
MQ Reader Review:
Great Lubricant! – “This is one of the best water-based lubricants I have used. It’s not expensive which is nice and this size will last someone awhile. I have not had any problems with it drying out too fast or being sticky after drying. If you add a little water when the lube starts drying it gets wet again also. Best water-based lubricant I have used, and prefer water-based over silicone. Enjoy” – Kevin
If you are looking for the best cheap lube for jacking off and aren’t looking to drop a lot of money, then Smooth and Slick is your best bet.
Silicone Lubes for Masturbation
Silicone lubes are known for being some of the most durable, long-lasting, and durable lubricants. Because of this, they are also some of the most expensive lubes as well. If though you are looking for the absolute top-performers in terms of sheer lubrication and endurance, then silicone lubes are by dar the best lubes for masturbation you can choose from.
Pjur is the best silicone lube I have ever used – period. It is thick, virtually friction-free, and feels amazing to use.
The silicone base means it will not dry out, even after you use it for an extended period of time or expose it to air, so if you are looking for something heavy-duty and can take a pounding then this is the way to go.
On the other hand, the thickness and durability mean that it can be more difficult to clean up.
But if you want a lube that will last and last and be and slippery as possible, then it doesn’t get any better than Pjur Body Glide.
MQ Reader Review:
Worked Fantastic! – “A little goes a long way and it feels great. I use it to jack off with and one application does the trick!”
Swiss Navy is one of our favorite silicone lubes, and as much, easily one of our favorites lubes for masturbation. Swiss Navy has ranked as one of the best lubes on the MQ Store for over 5 years now and is one of the top-selling, high-quality lubes we can’t help but recommend.
The convenient pump is great for one-handed use and easily locks to store in a bag or travel with. The formula is long-lasting, smooth, and feels absolutely great to use. It is easily one of the best lubes for masturbation, especially for those on the go.
