According to Bustle.com, in the 1650s a euphemism for having sex was to “dance the Paphian jig.” In this case, ‘Paphian’ referred to the city of Paphos which was sacred to people who worshipped Aphrodite; the goddess of love and sex.
Why do we bring this up, other than the general pleasure of knowledge? Because silicone lubricant has many uses, just like there are many phrases for getting it on. You can put some in your hair as a leave in conditioner. You can use it to moisturize, brighten, and protect tattoos. Rub it on for a sensual massage and, if the evening takes you that way, use it on your sexy bits for when you feel like … dancing. Maybe a jig? The Paphian jig?
JO Massage Glide and Lubricant is one of our most popular silicone lubes. It's long lasting and great for sensitive skin. It won’t leave you feeling greasy, oily or tacky. And, just like all the different ways to have a roll in the hay, there are different types of JO. There’s regular and unscented, warming, and lavender scented; because not all people want the same thing when they’re doing the horizontal mambo.
JO warming includes capsicum and peppermint oil to get your body tingling. Unlike sensation gels, oils and lotions, this lubricant produces a mildly warm sensation that you can feel but probably won’t make you run for the fire extinguisher. It’s safe to use internally (meaning in a vagina or anus, it’s really best to not put it in your eye).
Ingredients: Dimethicone, cyclopentasiloxane, cyclotetrasiloxane, dimethiconol, peppermint oil, capsicum frutescens resin

Disc top cap
Mildly minty flavor and scent
Care and Upkeep:
Silicone lubricant is great for really long love sessions with a lot of friction, sex in the water, and for skin that doesn’t lubricate itself but it’s not good on silicone sex toys. Silicone lube will break down the material of those toys, so keep them apart! But it’s totally safe to use on all condoms, dental dams, the scroguard and plastic, metal and glass sex toys. And it’s safe to use for oral sex, though you probably don’t want to drink the whole bottle (ew -not that we’re judging). It is considered safe to use on jelly rubber sex toys, but some people feel like it contributes to the quicker weakening of jelly rubber.
