Following the current gin revival trend, the Lovehoney Special Edition Gin and Tonic Flavoured Lubricant seemed right up my festive street. I’m looking forward to partaking in Ginvent again this year -and while I’m not imbibing those boozy samples, I can add a splash of gin flavour to intimate oral fun with my partner. Bottoms up!
If you’ve no clue what I’m going on about, first watch this... then come back. Yes, today I’m going to be talking about that old Christmas fave, chocolate orange. Not the confectionery though; the Lovehoney Chocolate Orange Flavoured Lubricant from Lovehoney.
I have been given the opportunity to review the Sliquid Swirl Blackberry Fig Lube (from sextoys.co.uk) by the Pleasure Panel, run and organised by Cara Sutra. Boasting an upmarket and unusual flavour I was looking forward to testing this water based lubricant out.
The Sutherland Lubricating Jelly (available from Amazon) is a plain, no smell, sterile water-based lubricant. This is designed for vaginal, surgical or gynaecological procedures. With regards to the sex toy world this can be good for people who have an allergy to lubricants with flavours and scents or for people who use medical toys like speculums etc.
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…
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.
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.
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.
I was too curious to try this Bondara Essentials Spunk Lubricant! Since my guy lives in another city because of his work, I have definitely experienced what “I crave a good old facial and I just cannot have it right now” means; also, having some (fake) jizz always ready for some torrid bukkake play on Skype seemed a fun and stimulating idea. In this kind of situations, after all, play and creativity are the only things that help you survive the relationship I’m afraid :)
I own a ton of water-based lubes. I use silicone toys a lot, so they’re pretty much essential. But one of my biggest issues with water-based lubes is that most of them are so very runny. I’m notoriously clumsy, and lubing up a toy always ends with my hands all sticky and a small puddle of lube on the bed-sheets. Consequently, I always seek out the thicker lubes: they make so much less of a mess.
I spotted the Give Lube Noir Gel Lube (Silicone Lubricant) on October's Pleasure Panel listing and thought that it would be perfect for my partner. It's the first lubricant that I've seen that has been designed with black skin in mind and I couldn't wait to surprise him with it and see what he thought.
Give Lube #Selfie Pleasure Gel lubricant is a water based lubricant that is one of the newer products in the Give Lube line. It is super thick and very slick feeling. It definitely will stay put wherever you choose to use it.
I received the System JO H2O Jelly Water Based Personal Lubricant as a reviewer for the Pleasure Panel. I have reviewed many toys during my time so far on the Pleasure Panel, many of which are silicone and therefore require water-based lubricants to prevent damage so can never have enough compatible lubes.
I received this Licx Smooth Sensual Gel Lube as part of Cara Sutra’s Pleasure Panel, so thank you very much! I was intrigued about the concept of a gel lube, since I don’t believe I have tried a lubricant of that texture before, plus I have heard great things about Licx as a brand, so this was a product definitely worth the opportunity to try out.
I'm always up for trying new lubricants, whether new to the market or new to myself. I put myself forward to test any on offer at the Pleasure Panel and was selected to review the SPIT Water Based Lube available from Freedoms Shop.
