Being Smart about Fluid Bonding

bonding with fluids

Fluid Bonding is a term that is gaining more traction in today’s society alongside polyamory, open relationships and consent. So what does it mean?

 

Fluid bonding is the intentional decision between parties/people where they decide to share bodily fluids. This decision can be made for many reasons ranging from person to person and it is important to have these conversations as to why to ensure that you and the people/s are on the same page. Some of the reasons may be for emotional connection, serious involvement, a step in a relationship, ownership, BDSM or fetish.

 

Fluid bonding is a serious subject because sharing body fluids comes at great risk. Bodily fluids such as saliva, semen, vaginal discharge and blood can carry STIs and diseases that can be harmful when spread.

 

Fluid Bonding is not a term thrown around for once offs, it is an ongoing commitment. Some Fluid bonded relationships are still open outside of their fluid bonded relationship but that means that any and all play is protected from start to finish and will require testing to ensure that everyone is safe.

 

Fluid Bonding is built on a basis of trust and open transparency upon past sexual health and future sexual health and testing. Discussing these may be difficult or uncomfortable but it is very necessary to protect everyone involved.

 

When making the decision to become Fluid Bonded, it is important to sit down and discuss why you would like to become fluid bonded, what it means to each of you. Then it is important to get tested either together or separately but to share those test results with each other. Communication and complete transparency regarding this and if you have had any STIs in the past is necessary for the safety of each other moving forward.

 

Work out if you are closed or open and how you will mitigate testing in the future. If you will be sharing partners, it’s important to know how to protect yourselves not just yourself. If you have more than one partner or are in a fluid bonded polyamorous relationship ensure that everyone is aware of the risks and discuss getting tested regularly to keep everyone safe and on the same page.

 

Another discussion point for hetero-sexual partners is to discuss further contraception option if children are not immediately wanted, or wanted at all.

 

Fluid bonding like consent can always be ended or retracted. If there is moment, or something that makes you feel uncomfortable you are always within your rights to ask to reinstate using barriers during intercourse

 

A note about Precum:

Precum can still carry bacteria, viruses and sexually transmitted diseases and still contract sexually transmitted diseases. Any and all play involving PIV (penis in Vagina) or PIA (penis in anus) or PIM (penis in mouth) should use a condom if you are not fluid bonded with another person to minimise the risk of transferable diseases and cleanliness.

Complete Guide on Deep Throating

Deep Throat Movie Cover

Deep throat, it can make some people nervous and others rise to the challenge and reign victorious. Since the infamous film broke back in 1972, more and more people each year are warming their throats to the idea that they could do this themselves and even go as far to research tactics to tackle the dreaded gag reflex. For the lucky few who don’t have a gag reflex, gifted souls that you are it makes this act very easy but for those of us that gag and are more sensitive, I have compiled some tactics, tips and products that can assist and make the experience fun and pleasurable.

The pharyngeal reflex is a contraction of the throat, usually when an object is pressed or touched against the roof at the back of the throat or the end of the tongue near the tonsils. This reflex is to prevent choking and I find that many people that have hyper-sensitive reflex generally due to a conditioned response brought on by a traumatic experience previous or acute anxiety. For those on the other end of the spectrum, about 1 in 3 people are found to be lacking or not have the response reflex at all.

Historically not much has been mentioned about deep fellatio until the 70s, Deep Throat the film broke in 1972, an American pornographic film dubbed the ‘forefront of the Golden Age of Porn’. Starring Linda Lovelace and Harry Reems as the Doctor with a story line based on a woman born with an unusual birth defect giving her the ability to perform remarkable fellatio, which the Doctor solves with an unorthodox solution.

It was released at a time where the war was being waged by counterculture and sexual liberation was rising up against a belligerent establishment. This film now considered a cult porn classic, set the bar for other film production companies, directors, writers and of course the actors to up their game. Since 1972, we have seen some big names break specialising in the art of deep throat.

New age actors like Ice La Fox, Lacey Duvalle, Sasha  Grey, Belladonna, Sean Cody’s Curtis and the fiery Gianna Michaels (pictured in order below) who’ve gained notoriety and have even won awards for best oral scenes over the years.

I have seen some of these actors in all their glory and have found they all use similar techniques, most will force an object (fingers or sex toys) to trigger the gag or pharyngeal reflex/spasm to relax the throat and make it easier before performing deep fellatio. This is quite extreme and not advised, but I will say that watching these performers just makes me realise why they have won countless awards throughout the years, their sexual abilities are out of this world! I remember watching Sasha Grey once in a gang bang with about ten men and she went deep one after the other, I was in absolute awe of her abilities… I was well, gobsmacked! Whether this scares you or slightly interests you, there is no denying those that achieve this and more have an outstanding ability.

There are products that we at Oh Zone Adult Lifestyle Centres do stock to assist those with difficulty in performing deep throat/ fellatio but have that desire to go deep and explore. These product are compact and discreet sprays and creams for those that want to venture deeper into extreme sexual activity and oral foreplay. Sprays will generally have an anesthetic agent to numb the area topically to make it easier to go deep, creams work as lubrication or a coating agent in delightful flavours to accommodate those who may have resistance or allergies to anesthetics or alcohol which are used in sprays.

Deliciously Sweet Sensuva Deeply Love You Throat Relaxing Spray!

Numb Lip Joke Carton Image

I am pleasantly surprised to find that the Sensuva Deeply Love You Throat Relaxing Spray actually works shockingly well! When the delivery for the Throat Relaxing Sprays arrived in our Oh Zone Adult Lifestyle Centres I smirked. I’ve seen a lot of products which claim to ‘relax’ and ‘numb’ before but when I tested them, they had only worked for 2 minutes and some didn’t work at all.

I want you to picture this… It was the first day the sprays hit our stores and I couldn’t wait to give it a go. After all, it probably wouldn’t work… right? Without reading the recommended directions (You should always read the recommended decorations) I sprayed a Sensuva Throat Relaxing Spray four times in my mouth. Twice on my tongue and twice on the back of my throat because I believed that it probably wouldn’t work. Just as I placed the cute bottle back on the shelf our store buzzer went off which let me know a customer had come in.
The numbing agent began to set in so I went into a mild panic. The numbness began at the tip of my tongue which is where I sprayed first. It made its way slowly all the way down to the back of my mouth and to the back of my throat. I heard voices, so I turned around and smiled somewhat lopsidedly. I greeted them with my best hello with ABSOLUTELY NO FEELING IN MY MOUTH. Luckily, it was a younger couple who came in regularly to see new products that we have in our adult lifestyle stores. I explained to them what I’d just done which made them laugh. They ran over to the lubricant stand and grabbed the testers whilst they bickered over who will try the butter rum flavour first. I decided it would be a good idea to also try the chocolate mint flavour. By now my lips are also kind of numb and I’m unsure of where my tongue is in my mouth. This is when I realised it probably wasn’t a good idea to have sprayed it four times. We all encouraged each other that nobody could tell that we all had a numb mouth. The conversation went a little like this:

The moral of the story is to start with 1 or 2 sprays at a max. If you do apply too much, you can drink a big glass of water which will help to decrease its impact.

The Flavours

Sensuva Throat Relaxing Sprays is available in five flavours that include chocolate mint, chocolate coconut, cinnamon, butter rum and salted caramel. Aside from the salted caramel flavour, I’m quite impressed that all of the flavours are relatively unique and are not the flavours that lubricants tend to be made in. Secondly, they all actually taste like the flavour that they’re called which isn’t always the case with most products! This can sometimes be due to many products that do not contain real sugar but instead contain artificial sugar which changes the flavour. This is usually the case with chocolate flavours. This is not the case with Sensuva Throat Relaxing Sprays as they’re deliciously sweet, decadently rich and equally as relaxing. I recommend you try the Butter Rum flavour!

The Claim

“He will fall deeply in love with you when you use our flavoured numbing spray to help relax your throat muscles and take his love deeper than ever before…”
Though the use of ‘He’ pronouns is a little bit annoying, I still believe the rest of the claim to be true! Don’t let the word “HE” discourage you as anyone can use this product. We 100% realise that many people thoroughly enjoy engaging in blow jobs during strap-on play. Whether the material is made from silicone, plastic or fleshly, you can still use and enjoy Sensuva Throat Relaxing Spray.

Directions

Sensuva recommends that you shake the bottle well before use and only spray once or twice, to begin with. You should aim for the spray to hit the back of your mouth/throat ideally, as who wants a numb tongue? Within 30 seconds the numbing agent will begin to activate and it will begin to relax your throat muscles. Add more spray as desired.

The Sensation

Sensuva Throat Relaxing Spray begins to relax your throat muscles after just 30 seconds, so you’re pretty much ready to go straight away. Throat spray’s that are relaxing are ideal for those whose partner is well-endowed, those who have a gag reflex or even those who just want to comfortably deep throat their partner.
I highly recommend watching this YouTube video for a laugh and demonstration:

Random fact

Throat numbing and relaxing sprays are also AMAZING if you’re prone to getting sore throats, tonsillitis etc. It works just as well (if not better) than throat lozenges do at effectively putting throat pain at bay. It is highly recommended to speak to a medical professional before using Throat Relaxing Sprays for medical use.

Some Flavorsome Delights For All Those Intimate Times!

I am reviewing two of our recent additions to our Oh Zone Adult Lifestyle Centres sex toy shops in the oral sex department including Sensuva’s Sizzle Lips Warming Edible Gel which is a flavoured lubricant and the Sensuva’s Deeply Love You which is a throat relaxing spray.

I am normally exclusively a salted caramel lubricant girl but I have been really impressed by these products and they have been selling really well in our Penrith store, even though they don’t come in salted caramel flavour (*tear*). Sensuva Deeply Love You comes in three flavours – Cinnamon, Chocolate Mint and Buttered Rum. There have been deep throat sprays for oral sex on the market for a long time. They numb and relax the area to avoid gagging and make the experience of giving head more relaxed. What I like about these ones is that they are more attractively marketed and packaged than the usual and I really like the chocolate mint flavour. I have not tried them in person whilst actually doing the deed but I have sampled our testers in store to get an idea of what customers should expect.

Steps To Use The Relaxing Spray:

  1. Shake the bottle first.
  2. Open your mouth wide.
  3. Uncap the bottle.
  4. Spray the liquid towards the back of your throat.
  5. Keep your head tilted slightly upwards.

The reason I say “Keep your head tilted slight upwards” is that when I tried it, it was during a slow period at work and with no customers, in the store I thought it would be a good opportunity to try it out without too much embarrassment if it somehow went wrong. So I sprayed it in my mouth and the slight shock of the strength and flavour distracted me. I was sort of looking downwards, opening and closing my mouth just getting used to the sensation when the buzzer went off to let me know customers were coming in to the shop, and I jerked my head up, not realising that the spray had made me salivate a bit more than usual and a wonderfully dignified drool is what happened next as my head came up, of course, just as I was about to try and greet customers. Please learn from my shame and don’t make the same mistake at home – unless of course some unexpected drooling is going to enhance the scene (and who am I to judge?)

Ok, so that was a slightly shaming experience, BUT it goes to show that this would be a great product for oral sex as the numbing effect is definitely for real, and the extra saliva will only add to how great it feels for the recipient. It’s also a funny story to re-enact when I’m drunk, so there’s that.

Flavour-wise, I found both the Cinnamon and Buttered Rum to be less than thoroughly delightful, but they’re not bad enough to not use the product. Chocolate Mint, on the other hand, was really quite tasty. Just be warned, all the flavours taste quite strong initially.

The numbing effect happens pretty quickly and seems to last between 10 mins and half an hour. Most of the effect had gone for me after about 15-20 mins from one squirt of the stuff, but it took about half an hour before it was 100% gone. Which is pretty ideal really for the purposes. If oral is going continuously for longer than that you’re probably going to have a pretty sore jaw. And you can always re-apply if you want a stupendously long session.

Next, on to the Sizzle Lips, it comes in three flavours – Caramel Apple (slight favourite, it is caramel after all). Strawberry and Hot Buttered Rum. Now, these three flavours are all major winners in my book. Super, super tasty. Even though I wasn’t keen on the Rum flavour in their deep throat spray, in the lubricant it’s delicious. Quite probably it’s just hard to find a flavour that can overcome the numbing agents in the spray. But yes, the lube, Oh My God yes. Not only are the flavours fantastic, but there is also a slight warming effect too. I wasn’t sure how fantastic that would be in my mouth but it was actually incredible. The whole thing is like eating the most mouth-watering dessert, and I can only imagine how fantastic it would be in the bedroom. Warming lubes increase arousal and pleasure when used in intimate areas and one which is tasty as hell gets two very enthusiastic thumbs up from me. High. Quality.

Sizzle Lips are water based lubes so they are safe to use with toys, although I would avoid getting them inside your vagina as flavoured lubes can sometimes provoke thrush. Best to save them for oral and you can always use a wet wipe such as Wet Stuff Swipes, which is safe to use on intimate areas, to get off any residue if you move from oral to penetration in the one session. These lubes also contain glycerine (from vegetables) and tea tree oil, so if you are sensitive to these products just be aware and if necessary avoid them.
