I had the pleasure of testing out numerous different lubricants, all of different kinds and flavours. Each lubricant in this selection of Ann Summers Essentials And Sex Lubes from Ann Summers had its own textures and feels, each had their own pros and cons.
Described as being a super thick water-based lubricant that is also free from parabens and glycerin we couldn’t wait to take the Wicked Sensual Care Toy Love Water Based Lubricant from Simply Pleasure for a spin. Would it be that illusive thick but not tacky lubricant, or are we letting ourselves in for some gloopy jelly…
It had been quite a while since I had last reviewed a lubricant for Cara, so when I saw in her Pleasure Panel list for August a new lubricant called Boy Butter (that I had never heard of) from Simply Pleasure I thought to myself that I would really like to give that a go.
I was sent the System JO Two To Tango Couples Lubricant Kit (available from Simply Pleasure) to test and review for the Pleasure Panel. Thank you Cara and to the distributor for supplying the product.
A little back story this System JO H2O Lube Cotton Candy Flavoured Lube (available from Simply Pleasure) is what kind of attracted me to it in the first place -as I thought it was such a lovely idea. Its history is described as nostalgic to the 1904 when candy floss was first invented at a fair and gives you a very romantic idea especially the year and era it is based on which really gave the product it self a bit of story almost.
I had looked at Slube in the past as we are both fond of massage and shared baths, so this seemed ideal, but have never taken the plunge. When the Slube Slubricant Cocktail Edition Pina Colada Bath Based Lube became available for review for the Pleasure Panel we leapt at the chance and were very happy to be chosen to review it. Would it live up to our hopes?
Always on the lookout for decent water based lubricants, especially those that come in pump bottles, so how did the Kinx Aqua Slix Water Based Lubricant from Simply Pleasure fare?
We tested Pjur Aqua Waterbased Lubricant for the Cara Sutra Pleasure Panel. We always use water based lube, due to it being so versatile, and not being a risk to our precious silicone toys. This lubricant is significantly more pricey than our usual lubricant, so we had high hopes for it.
The Pjur Woman Concentrated Bodyglide comes in a small, simple bottle. I was sent a 30 ml / 1.02 fl oz bottle, which is a great size for popping into your weekend bag when going away. It is advertised on the bottle as having no flavouring, fragrance, oil, fat or preservatives. If you're sensitive to any of these things, this could be a winner for you!
Lubrication made for fisting! What’s not to like about this. We were delighted this month that the lovely Cara Sutra sent us the Bondara Essentials Fisting Lubricant from Bondara.co.uk in exchange for an honest review.
He has been loving the masturbation creams that he reviewed for previous Pleasure Panel rounds but still wanted something that was strictly water-based to use with his silicone masturbators and vibrators. I spotted that the System JO For Him H2O Gel Water Based Personal Lubricant was on offer in the latest round so put him forward and was happily selected to give it a test drive.
It's been a while since I had a bottle of silicone lube, so I was excited to try the Bondara Essentials Silicone Luxury Lubricant.
We can never understand when someone does not have a supply on hand. Silicone lube is new for us though. We started with and have yet to deviate from water-based products. When we were asked to review the System JO Premium Jelly Silicone Based Personal Lubricant for this month's Pleasure Panel, we were more than thrilled.
I picked the Trojan Chain Reaction Lubricant because the package professed to provide an experience! “Sensations Keep CHANGING for Non-Stop Thrills”, and the factory had even added an extra step of putting a sticker on the outside of the package with a quote from an Actual User Review, “Mindblowing!”, and then the full five stars.
I really enjoyed the use of the Bondara Essentials Cooling Tingling Lubricant, the overwhelming senses did lead to a brilliant orgasm and boy does the cooling hanging around for a long time – the smell is very strong, it’s quite medicinal, normally I’d be all over this lube as it has menthol in it but it does honk and the intense feelings are a fine line between enjoyment and pain but overall if it didn’t have glycerine in it, I’d rate this lube quite high.
I received the Bondara Essentials Anal Relax Lubricant from Bondara via the Pleasure Panel for an open and honest review.
I have used both water-based and silicone-based lubricants and gels when masturbating or playing with sex toys in the past. I have never had the opportunity to try a cream so I raised my hand when Cara put out the call for a reviewer to volunteer for the Give Lube #Selfie Masturbation Cream.
Well, let’s first admit I am really into kissable/edible sex essentials, not only lube but also massage oils, body paint, flavoured lip glosses and clitoral balms. Not only because I’m blatantly someone who REALLY loves food – and sweet food, sadly, is on the top ten of my favourites – but also because I feel they really bring new sensations to sex...
