Bedroom Essentials Reviews

Bedroom essentials reviews tell you all you need to know about everything which is sex-related but isn’t strictly a sex toy or adult product. This category of adult reviews is so wide and diverse that you may find it easier to use the main menu to navigate to the exact sub-category that interests you.

What sort of adult products come under the label of bedroom essentials, then? There are romantic gifts, adult games and sexy edibles. Sex enhancers and erotic massage -such as massage oils and erotic massage candles- also get the honest review treatment. I must say that I love a good massage candle, and there is a world of difference between a cheaply made type and the massage candles that are worth investing in.

Let’s not forget those bedside drawer must-haves: condoms, sex toy cleaner and LUBE. There are so many different types of sex lubricant available, so enjoy reading through the many honest reviews for water-based lube, silicone lube, anal lube and various other formulation types. Some people can be sensitive to some lubricant ingredients, such as glycerine and phthalates, so it’s important to read up on exactly what’s in the lubricant you use with your sex toys and during sex.

Love your latex clothing? We have reviews for both latex cleaner and latex shiner. Make sure you’re properly prepped for anal sex or enjoying your anal sex toys, by reading reviews for anal douches. And how do you store your adult products, BDSM gear and other bedroom accessories? You’ll even find bedroom essentials reviews for sex toy storage solutions here at the Cara Sutra sex blog.

Lovehoney Oh! Attract Women Pheromone Scent Rollerball Review

Lovehoney Oh! Attract Women Pheromone Scent Rollerball Review

7 out of 10
Excited to see what the scent was really like, I applied it to my pulse points as recommended on the box. I could smell the patchouli and cedar straight away, then the light crisper citrus notes came through. It's not an overpowering patchouli smell (I didn't smell like 'goth shop'!) but there's an exotic musk which I must say I preferred to the 'attract men' version.

Applying it to my pulse points as recommended on the box, I was able to finally experience the scent of this 'attract men' pheromone scent. It's quite a delicate scent, and although there are sweeter top notes, there's a musky base from the cedar and sandalwood which lends an exotic air.

When I apply it to my clit it feels like that silently-squealing horny feeling when I really need to orgasm... hot and cold all at once, with no discomfort, just intense, tingling pleasure. It is also effective applied to whichever other erogenous zone you fancy –nipples, labia etc.

It wasn’t until I peeled away the hygiene seal and dispensed a little Delight Lube that I realised my preconceptions about this lube had been completely wrong. It isn’t thin and clear, as I was expecting; the Delight Lube is semi-opaque (white) and genuinely silky. A delightfully slippery, silky and thick cushioning lube. I had to take a little video  to show you what I mean...

Nexus are a brand I have a great deal of time and respect for. They invest a lot of research into their luxurious and effective prostate stim toys, and are regular recipients of various adult industry awards.

I absolutely adore the sights, sounds and smells of the fairground -the rides not so much, I'm very much a 'eat the food, hold the bags' visitor to the fair.  Speaking of eating the food, cotton candy or candy floss is something I always grab a stick of as I walk past all of the bright and colourful sweet stalls.  When I saw the System JO Candy Shop H2O Cotton Candy Lube in the Pleasure Panel round I didn't think twice about volunteering.

Lovehoney Oh! Chocolate Body Paint Review | Pleasure Panel

Few of us have ever needed an excuse to lick our partner from head to toe, but no one ever turned down an offer of chocolate either. So I was helpless to resist reviewing the Lovehoney Oh! Chocolate Body Paint, available now from lovehoney.co.uk, priced £6.99 for a 120g tube.

I was offered the HerSolution Pills and the HerSolution Gel by Leading Edge Health, who sent them to me in exchange for my honest review. I've had varied success rates with these types of libido enhancing products. After looking through the plentiful information on the hersolution.com website, I agreed to give them a go.

...when Cara offered up some tasty flavoured lubes from System JO, I couldn't resist offering my services. I mean, who wouldn't want to try a butterscotch flavoured lube. Just the thought of it had me salivating and thinking of fun ways to put it to the test.

Having thought about it, I thought that the System JO Candy Shop H2O Cotton Candy Lube sounded like an interesting idea.  Would this lube slide me back to memories of fairgrounds and fun as a youngster, or would it prove to be too much of a tacky idea and leave me wanting a more conventional lubricant?

I really enjoyed looking through the offerings from Cara for the April Pleasure Panel round, and despite there being a number of different items that I thought that I would like to have a go with, it really was the Monogamy: A Hot Affair Game from Lovehoney that I was hoping to be chosen for.

Having recently reviewed a Spurt Water Based Lubricant for Cara, I was intrigued to see a small travel size bottle of their silicone based lube being offered during the latest Pleasure Panel round. With the recent revelation to me that there is no issues with using a silicone based lube along with a silicone toy, I thought why not give it a try and see what it feels like?

Previous flavored lubricants we’d tried included Wet and Pure Romance brands, neither of which we were impressed with.  In our experience, the flavors are always pretty awesome, but the lubricant aspect of the products is pretty poor. So while we didn’t have high expectations, we were hopeful that the System JO Candy Shop H2O Cotton Candy Lube would be better.

I have reviewed a few lubricants for Cara Sutra's Pleasure Panel and will always be happy to review more. This review is for the System JO Candy Shop H2O Butterscotch Lube. I have always been wary of flavoured lubes due to the taste not generally being great or greasy.
