Oil Based Lube Reviews
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.
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.
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) I thought to myself that I would really like to give that a go.
I chose to test the YES OB Plant Oil Based Lube with my newest glass dildo which features a very large bulbous head. Normally I would only use a tint drop of water based lube on a glass toy but the sheer size of the head on this made me want to try something more substantial that was going to last.
The YES OB Organic Plant Oil Based Lubricant isn’t the thickest lube I must admit, and over time, perhaps with the oils heating up and being squeezed a few times, this lube seems to have gotten runnier and has thinned out slightly from the first time I used it. I don’t really think it’s thick enough for use anally. The texture does mean, however, that you could use it also as a massage oil in a pinch, a use which the product itself claims you can do.
By BeatingaroundtheBush: From the first moment I picked up The Butters All Natural Lube, I knew I was going to love it. It wasn't in a shiny, cheap, tube for starters. On first glance, it looks like the most natural luxury organic lube I've ever seen. The packaging is so simple, with a clear lid and black tub. Labelled very clearly, it lists all ingredients and benefits. It is truly perfect to behold.
By Lightweight Toucan: I was quite surprised when I opened my package, and a small, oval, black pot tumbled out. It looked similar to something Lush would make, so naturally The Butters All Natural Lube won me over with its simple, neat pot and white label.
By Cheshire Kink: Crisco is the brand name of a type of vegetable oil that is classed as “shortening”, which means that it is solid at room temperature….that’s the science out of the way. The packaging is well urm… food packaging and includes ingredients and even a Shortcake recipe!
By Cara Sutra: Ever wanted a body-safe version of a Mint Aero which you could smear all over your genitalia during sex? You’re in luck. This Sex Butter from Crowned Jewels smells exactly like a Mint Aero and the good news is the formulation is safe to use for massage, foreplay and even penetrative sex.
I think personally I've come to like the Sensuva ON Natural Arousal Balm For Her because when I want to masturbate, I find myself searching for the balm and when I can't find it because it's stuck down the side of my bed somewhere, I have a mini panic and get worried that I won't be able to use it again. I think this balm is like cheesecake, an acquired taste.
Welcome to my Swiss Navy Massage Cream & Masturbation Cream reviews. I'm providing a dual review as these two products are in fact... the same thing! After my own review you'll also be able to read the experiences of three of my reviewers as well as browse their photographs.
The delicate and gentle infusion is harmonious to an intimate session, adding a fragrant air rather than a layer which tries to supersede the natural senses. It does not interfere with your arousal; instead you're able to lay back and enjoy your sexual activity whether alone or with your partner, reassured by the knowledge that this lubricant contains only natural ingredients.
Despite the unusual look of the YES Organic Oil Based Sex Lubricant, compared to the standard transparent liquids of other lubes, this is a high quality lubricant that feels natural and warm on the skin. For vaginal masturbation it is a particular joy. The thicker consistency while in the bottle means less chance of unfortunate spills, too.
I can't fault the quality of the lubricants in the YES Organic Sexual Lubricants Selection Box at all. Whether from the bottles, the sachets or the applicators. You can tell this is a quality lubricant and capital has been invested wisely into extremely safe lubes that I challenge anyone to have a problem with.
use for these Lube Tubes would be as part of Medical Fetish scenes. When engaging in Doctor or Nurse and patient roleplay, you could have fun simulating injections or suppositories of a genital or anal nature. There’s also fun to be had with injecting (sorry, inserting) other types of things – mixing a dash of Listerine, Tabasco or hot chilli sauce with some water based lubricant and inserting a butt plug on top, for instance.
It's £4 for a golden ampoule of Sensuva ON Natural Arousal Oil For Her goodness; I think it's a fair price for that boosted arousal effect that can actually be felt. It did work for me and next time I think I'll go for the larger balm or oil bottle. Before a night out, this would be absolutely amazing.
