Pleasure Panel Reviews
I have tried many lubes over the years including ones that were not body-friendly and ones that were awesome. I had heard from other reviewers that System JO was a great lube and always wanted to try it myself. I mainly use only water-based, unflavored lubricants, so chose System JO H2O Water Based Lubricant to try out.
I so wanted to like the Minx Mini Bunny Finger Vibrator from Simply Pleasure. It looked so cute, and seemed so simple, really how could it go wrong? Unfortunately there was nothing about the Minx Mini Bunny Finger Vibrator that I did like.
By Angel R Rivera / gypsylibrarian Got a little erotica reading done recently with Penthouse Variations on Oral. This volume is by the editors of Penthouse Variations. Now, I will admit that I have not read Penthouse or Penthouse Variations for some time, a deficit I need to remedy down the road. I do enjoy erotic tales featuring oral sex, so I looked forward to reading this new volume. I have to say that this collaboration with Cleis Press was a pleasant reading experience.
Sex toys are like an addiction, we are all searching for one that gives us a better orgasm than the one before. Like we all aspire to own a bigger, better, faster car than the one we currently drive, so we want stronger, quieter, quicker sex toys. Driving a luxury car, you want only the finest for it, the finest fuel, the finest tyres, the finest oil, and so it should be with sex toys; a decent lube can be the difference between “oh yes” and “OHHH YESSSS!”
I'd like to thank Cara for sending over some sachets of Mates Silky Smooth Light Silky Lube from Freedoms Shop to test and review.
By edn Lube is one of the great unsung heroes of the sexual toy-box. A good lube can be the difference between pleasure and pain. (And you at the back who’s ears just perked up I’m talking about non-fun pain!) With most people lube seems to be an afterthought, but it’s really worth putting some time into choosing the right one, or ones.
We were lucky enough to be chosen by Cara to test the Freedoms Shop Cream Regular Joe Passion Pouch from freedoms-shop.com. Although we are a married couple in our 40s we still use condoms for birth control, for a number of reasons.
Being in a long term committed relationship (now married!) condoms were never our main form of contraception. To be honest we only really use them if I feel we need extra protection should my pill be unreliable. We always use Pasante feel "extra thin" condoms as we both agree that they are the most comfortable ones around.
The bottle of System JO Peachy Lips lube is quite cute, with the small, thin shape making it easy to store discreetly. The flip top makes one handed use easy while still providing a secure seal; we’ve left this lying on its side for a few hours and nothing dribbled out. If you want a travel lube, the no spill cap and portable size make this a good one.
By Paul For years, I thought 57mm wide condoms were the largest ones available. After all, that's what was stated on the box I purchased at my local store. My sex life changed when I discovered the mysize brand which made condoms up to 69mm wide. I tried those, and never went back.
I make no secret of the fact that while I love giving my husband oral, there’s a part of me that hates it. I dislike the taste of pre-cum and actual cum is gag-alicious, so flavoured lubes are a godsend. While minty types are my faves, cherry comes in a close second, so when I spied this wee bottle of System JO H2O Cherry Burst being offered for review, I jumped at the chance to try it.
I got this lovely vibrating gift of happiness as part of Cara Sutra’s Pleasure Panel and it originated from the lovely people at Simply Pleasure. The first vibrating egg I’ve tried out and that’s no yolk. Yeah, sorry, I can’t resist a pun. I like that you don’t have to shell (groan) much out for this eggcellent toy. So, let’s crack on.
I am a fan of tingle type gels and have used a few different ones. The Pasante Female Stimulating Gel is very pleasant to look at in the pink 75ml bottle. I do like pink things. This Pasante gel is paraben free.
By Miss L Cobeco Body Lube advertises itself as a water based lubricant suitable for body massages and any intimate use with the added bonus that it is perfectly fine to use in combination with latex condoms. I am always surprised that some are not compatible with latex, so this one seems like it is off to a good start.
By Little Switch Bitch I grabbed the chance to try this ID pleasure tingling sensation lube as I haven't tried this brand before. I am not a stranger to tingle lubes, in fact I have a large variation of them from light sensation to ones that would burn the bits off you.
By Chili / CrimeScene I was a bit dubious about trying these condoms at first in case they didn't fit my partner. I didn't want them to come off inside me during intercourse. Therefore, I think we (my partner and I) were both pleasantly surprised when he unrolled one and it fit him rather well.
When I received the Minx Vibratone Duo Balls I was firstly disappointed by the packaging. It looked like something you could buy in a pound shop (never judge a book by its cover though). I was further let down by the lack of storage. I have bought a few different balls in the past which have always had either a small bag to go with, or a small box to place them in, This however had nothing.
By Just Indecerous I’ll be honest here I am not a big fan of condoms and the guys and girls that I know will all tell you that there is a clear difference in sensation between using them and not. Until recently I was in a non-monogamous relationship for 8 years and condoms were only a feature if we were doing anal or I was playing with another person with either my own junk or any of the sex toys from my collection. As such I always stayed with the tried and true Durex condoms for no other reason than it’s the largest company and the one most people know.
I have tried various bullet vibrators in the past and I have always found them to be slightly hit and miss but knowing the quality the Fifty Shades range usually delivers, I was eager to give the We Aim to Please bullet vibrator a try.
