Lube Reviews

Lube reviews are priceless when it comes to choosing the right type of sex lubricants for you. There are many different kinds, and even within the major types the formulations can differ enormously.

What are the main types of sex lube? There’s water-based lube, silicone lube, anal lube, oil-based lube and hybrid lube. Hybrid lubricants are usually a blend of silicone and water which give fantastic longevity and glide, while many of them are safe to use on a variety of sex toy materials.

Can you use silicone lube with silicone sex toys? Yes, contrary to popular belief. If your sex toy is genuine silicone, you can use silicone lubricant with it. If you’re unsure, try a dot on a small area of the toy (such as the base).

Why should you use lube? Sex lubricant is obviously fantastic to ease the glide and avoid chafing and discomfort when using your sex toys. Particularly if you’re using butt plugs and other anal sex toys, as the anal area does not produce its own natural lubricant like the vagina.

Lube has additional benefits too. It can help increase sensitivity during intimate moments and sex, as well as giving you a helping hand if you don’t produce enough natural lubrication. Lube is fantastic for self-exploration and masturbation, too. Allow your fingertips to roam freely with the help of a few dots of lubricant, and you’ll soon realise how enhanced your self-pleasure session is.

The lube reviews here on the Cara Sutra sex blog provide honest and thorough write-ups of many different types, brands and formulations of lube. I hope you enjoy browsing these reviews and finding your next fantastic lube.

Last week saw the celebration of YES Organic Intimacy Week, highlighted in my recent feature. As part of the awareness campaign, YES sent me a very generous gift hamper full of fun merch, information and the main organic essentials from their well-researched and effective range. As promised, I'm writing up my review of the YES Organic Lubricants and Intimate Moisturisers included in the gift hamper, now I've had a chance to properly use and enjoy them.

Always open to trying new lubricants, and being a particular fan of anything bubble gum flavoured or scented we were both looking forward to seeing how the System JO Candy Shop H2O Bubble Gum Lube (available from Harmony Store) would perform.

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.

...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?

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?

A rising trend in the sex toy industry is the use of CBD in products. For those unfamiliar with CBD, CBD or cannabidiol is the non-psychoactive component of marijuana. CBD has been on the rise to help combat the big pharmaceutical boom. It seems these days there is a pill or a cocktail of pills that will solve your every problem, but at what cost? The CBD industry seeks to break down all these barriers both financial and chemical making pleasure or pain relief more accessible.

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 available from Harmony Store. I have always been wary of flavoured lubes due to the taste not generally being great or greasy.

Kama Sutra Sensations Body Gel Review (Spearmint & Strawberry Dreams)

Kama Sutra Sensations Body Gel Review (Spearmint & Strawberry Dreams) | Pleasure Panel

The Wife and I have had a lot of experience with Kama Sutra products. Starting as far back as her bridal shower, she was gifted multiple products from quite conservative family and friends, which I guess means they pass the "classy" test. These included play sets, massage oils, and other bedroom accoutrements. Needless to say, our honeymoon was filled with a lot of 'testing'.

We really were spoiled for choice and with a number of lubes available to review, I jumped at the chance to have a look at some from a brand that I have to admit, I had never heard of before.  Before long, I had narrowed it down to the Kinx product range on offer (from Simply Pleasure) and thought I would give both the Warming lube and the Anal lube a whirl.  More about the Kinx Aqua Slix Warming Water-Based Lubricant in another review, now to crack on with the Kinx Slix Anal Hybrid Water-Based Lubricant.

You can never have enough lubricant choices! Water based lubes come in many colours and consistencies, but does the Spurt Premium Water Based Lubricant from Fetch Shop really give the "silky, cum like, super slick feeling" it claims?

Lube, lube, lube, you can never have enough! We’ve experienced a number of water based lubricants, and are fans of Aloe Vera for skin care, but have never combined the two... Would the EXSENS Aloe Vera Water Based Lube bridge the gap and be the perfect combination of the two?
