When was the last time you bought lube at an adult store? I mean an actual brick-and-mortar store? Last weekend, I was headed to a guy’s house for a hookup that I knew was likely to turn into several guys, so I stopped at a local adult store to buy some lube because I was out. Without looking at the price tag, I grabbed a medium sized Swiss Navy silicone lubricant and took it to the cashier.
The young woman rang it up and then pleasantly said, “That will be $57.63.”
“H-How much?” I was stammered, stunned.
She repeated the price and then smiled, waiting for my reply.
After explaining I did not want to purchase the lube after all, I sheepishly, returned it back to its shelf and selected the smallest-size version, grumbling to myself that it probably would not last the night. I returned to the cashier.
“That will be $38.53, she said after ringing it up.
Still shocked, at least this time I had enough cash to buy it, but it still cleaned out most of the money in my wallet. Looking back, it had been a long time since I had purchased lube in an actual store. I should have known better, and for that matter, I should not have let myself run out in the first place, right? Silly me.
Moral of this story: Plan ahead. Buy your lube online because it is a lot cheaper than any store bought lube. Fuck supporting local businesses. This shit is expensive!
I like CheapLubes.com myself. They have a wide selection of lubricants and other adult items. If you sign up to be on their email list, they frequently email special and coupons that discount their prices even further. If you have not ordered from their site before, give it a look.
FYI, I received nothing of value from CheapLubes.com for recommending them in this post. I just happen to like their site a lot. What’s your favorite online retailer for lube? What’s your favorite lube? Give a shout out to your favorites in the comments.
