Top 4 Lubricant Recommendations For Women In 2017

Woman who needs personal lubricant

As a woman, I understand that it can be a bit of a challenge finding the perfect personal lubricant. There exists so many brands on the market that it is an overwhelming endeavour if you have no idea what exactly you are searching for. The pH balance of a woman’s vagina is very fragile, with caution around what goes in and near there necessary to maintain a healthy balance. For women, especially those that are prone to vaginal infections and thrush, I recommend investing in a good quality lubricant free of nasty ingredients. Your body will thank you for it! I have compiled a list of my favourite personal lubricants that I recommend for women, perfect for a range of needs.

Intimate Earth Hydra & Defense

It is not a coincidence that I have included Intimate Earth Glide first off – This brand is my absolute favourite! Intimate Earth products are made in the USA and include organic ingredients. Both Hydra and Defense are vegan, glycerine and paraben free.

Hydra is a natural plant cellulose with minimal smell and a really nice glide to it. This is a great product for a woman looking for a simple lubricant that can be used for vaginal and anal sex with sex toys.

Defense includes tea tree oil, giving it a stronger fragrance which I personally love. Tea tree oil has natural antibacterial qualities which gives this lubricant a protective quality. The Carrageenan Sea Kelp and Guava Bark Anti-Bacterial extract found in this lubricant is said to be used for anti-yeast infection and HPV protection. Without reading peer-reviewed research, I am reluctant to validate these claims however it is an amazing lubricant for many other reasons including the smooth texture.

I find these lubricants do not go sticky or tacky like many other water based lubricants however the only down side would be that frequent reapplication is necessary.

JO For Her Agape Water Based Personal Lubricant

Coming in at a very close second place, JO For Her Agape Water Based Personal Lubricant is an incredible product that never lasts long in the Oh Zone Adult Lifestyle Centres due to its popularity. JO Agape is Glycerin, Glycol and Paraben free making it a great option for most women. The formula is on the slightly thin side with a super silky glide. I have found this lubricant to be very long lasting compared to many other water based products on the market. A big thumbs up from me!

Pjur Woman & Nude

I know that it is a bit of a generalisation but the people of Germany sure know how to make great sex toys and lifestyle products! Pjur is one of the most well know personal lubricant brands, with the Pjur Original Silicone Based Lubricant one of the best sellers in the Oh Zone Adult Lifestyle Centres. Pjur Woman is a tweaked version of the Pjur Original silicone lubricant, with the slightly gentler formula perfect for many women. Silicone lubricant is great for sex and massage however can only be used with glass or steel sex toys. Unlike water based lubricants, your skin does not absorb silicone lubricant therefore it needs to be washed off with soap and water and can stain sheets so be mindful when using it. A study also showed that some women have a higher chance of having a negative reaction to silicone lubricant compared with water-based so be mindful of this when trying it. Silicone lubricant is great but does not suit every woman.

Pjur Woman Nude is a water based lubricant that I have reviewed previously and have only good things to say about. Free of parabens and glycerine, Nude is a perfect accompaniment to your sex drawer. It can be used with most sex toys too. A little bit goes a long way with this fantastic lubricant.

Wildfire Black All Over Pleasure Oil

Wildfire All Over Pleasure Oils are my favourite multi-purpose massage oils, made in Australia from 100% natural ingredients. The Black bottle take precedence on my bedside drawer, with this oil great to use as lubricant, massage, bath and body oil. The Black contains fragrant essential oils such as Ylang Ylang, Patchouli and Bergamot along with natural aphrodisiacs like Maca and Horny Goat Weed. It is important that if you are using latex condoms, anything oil based will disintegrate the material making them almost useless. Just with silicone lubricant, oil is only to be used with glass or steel toys. Keep this in mind if using Wildfire Oil as lubricant and be mindful that oil will stain the sheets! A hot tip for you – Mix the Wildfire Pleasure Oil with some warm coconut oil to make it go further when using it for massage.

Every woman’s body is unique and will react differently to each of these products. I suggest trying on a small patch of skin first to ascertain if you have any reactions. If during or after use of these products you experience any unusual symptoms, please cease using them. It is definitely not worth pushing through if your body has a negative reaction to any product. Oh and don’t worry gentleman, despite these products being recommended for women, they are perfectly safe for men too!

This Cream Gives Masturbation Endurance!

Masturbation endurance cream makes you last longer

One of the pioneering companies in the adult toy industry is Topco.  Since 1975 they have been at the forefront of producing quality sex toys and aids.  Our friends from Topco have sent us 4M Training Gear – Endurance Masturbation Cream for review. 4M (For Males) is a line from Topco Sales that is designed to enhance male sexual play and wellness.  The cream comes in a 4.5 fluid ounce container and Topco says its:

‘Formulated to help improve stamina as well as increase pleasure, each dollop of this moisturizing water-based cream contains Vitamin E and ginseng – a natural compound prized for its performance-enhancing properties.’

4M Endurance Masturbation Cream Ingredients

It contains Purified Water (Aqua), Ethylhexyl, Carthamus Tinctorius (Safflower) Seed Oil, Vegetable Glycerin, Glyceryl Stearate, PEG-100 Stearate, Cetyl Alcohol, Dimethicone, Dimethiconol, Diazolidinyl Urea, Methylparaben, Propylene Glycol, Propylparaben, Carbomer, Panax Ginseng Root Extract, Tocopheryl Acetate and Triethanolomine.  The product is proudly made in the United States of America in the FDA approved manufacturing plants owned by Topco themselves.

The Texture And Experience

Opening the container I found that the product was as claimed, a rich creamy texture, much heavier than that of a lubricant obviously because it is specifically designed for the penis.  Placing a dab on my palm it quickly became luxuriously slippery with the warmth of one’s body.  I rubbed my palms together and there was no friction whatsoever.  I smelled my palms where the cream was and there was a little odour or scent that certainly was not offensive.  I then put a little on my finger and tasted it – I would not recommend using it if you are intending to have sex as it does not have the most pleasant of tastes.

I then got one of my favorite porn movies, whacked (pardon the pun) on my DVD player and began to watch it.  As the scenes got me turned on I applied some of the cream to my cock.  Initially it was a bit thick and tacky but as it warmed up to my body it became slick and thin. I began to move my hand up and down my shaft and it certainly increased the sensations.

I am not exactly sure which ingredient caused this but the skin on my penis slightly tingled – in a good way.  It could have been the ginseng or perhaps the acetate but the tingling sensation as mentioned was quite pleasurable.  Every jerk of the hand caused added excitement and regardless what speed my cock was stroked it was not uncomfortable and no friction was felt.

The consistency of the cream once warmed up was similar.  I would rate this product and certainly it enhances the masturbatory experience quite well.

Masturbation Techniques You Can Try

A couple of techniques you may wish to incorporate when using the Topco Endurance Masturabation Cream are:

The Palmer

When erect put some of the the masturbation cream in the palm of your hand and instead of jelqing your shaft rub the head of your penis against the palm of your hand until you climax.

The Bag

Get a sandwich bag and put the Endurance Masturbation cream liberally inside it.  Put your penis in squishing the cream so that your cock is completely covered. Place the bag between the pillows on your couch or between the mattress and the base on your bed.  Now pump to your hearts content and the best part of it is when you are finished there is no mess or clean up.

Hand Job Plus

This is one of my faves.  Hold your strong hand in the standard jelqing technique which is the OK sign.  Liberally place your 4M Endurance Cream in the ‘O” part of the hand and on your shaved pubic region.  Push your cock tight against your pubic area, encompass your shaft with the ‘O’ and then use your other fingers to cover the exposed (top part) of the shaft.  Then stroke your penis.  This will give you as close to a realistic vagina sensation without having to go out and buy a masturbator or stroker.

So go out and grab yourself some of this masturbation cream and have a go at some of my favorite jerking off styles.

18 Unbelievable Ways You Can Use Lube!

Personal silicone lubricant dripped on a persons body

If you’re anything like me then your “bedside drawer” or sex drawer is fuller than any other handy “drawer” or toolbox in your house, you find yourself in need of handy solutions to fix everyday problems. Working in the sex and sexual health industry I am never running short of Lube and it’s a good thing! Here are 18 uses for lube that really have come in handy!

Lip Care

Whether it be dry cracked lips from the cold, sun or wind lube has great qualities for moisturizing as well it will protect the skin. (It also doesn’t taste as good as commercial lip balms so you’ll be less likely to lick it off your lips!)

Side note: You can mix a tiny amount of lipstick and water-based lube to make a lightweight lip gloss!

Make-Up Remover

Another amazing savior, if you’ve ever used a new product or SFX makeup and find out your regular bottle of Marcella water isn’t taking this gunk off your face? Maybe you’re just uncomfortable pulling off false lashes? Once again it’s Silicone Lube to the rescue! Warm a little lube up in your hands and start rubbing, this stuff takes it all off! (If you’re using it for false lashes use a cotton bud and rub the top of the lash line.)

Shaving

Because of lubes moisturizing and skin protecting properties, it makes for the best (in my opinion) shaving cream. I find the lube attaches to the hair better raising it from the skin ensuring the closest shave. And because lube helps to prevent the skin from micro-tears I find that razor burn and ingrown hairs are minimised. This is even true for the coarser hairs in the underarms and bikini and taint areas.

Moisturiser???

I have read countless blogs talking about using lube as a substitute moisturizer, I can see where they are coming from however it’s just too thick. It’s not going to penetrate the dermis layer of the skin giving you real moisture for your skin. I think Lube is better left as a barrier protecting the skin from micro tears and damaging frictions. (In a last didge effort the right Lube could be used as a massage oil).

Bushy Bushy Brows!

Untameable brows don’t have to put a damper on your day. A tiny tiny TINY amount of lube massaged into your brows will give you that sleek clean brow you’re after.  If you use too much lube you’ll end up looking like you have sweat pouring from your brows and nobody wants that look! A little goes a LONG way!

Fly Away Hairs Got You On End?

Lube is heavier than leave in conditioner but lighter than Hair Gel. With a very small amount of lube, you can have that summer beach look without the frizzy accompaniment.

Gum In Your Hair!

Put the Scissors down! Silicone lube should be your new go-to for this sticky situation. (I hope you don’t need this more than once.) It also helps to choose one of the best personal silicone lubricants like SuperSlyde!

LICE!

Using silicone lube makes ease out of the tangled mess of Lice infested hair. The thickness or viscosity of the lube is also unpleasant for the lice and they aren’t able to run around the head and escape your comb!

Chafing killing your stride?

I’m not a runner, personally, I don’t see the point unless something is chasing you. But for those who do, I’ve heard chafing can be a serious issue.

Seriously, who hasn’t had that painful chafing from walking the beach in damp shorts?  A little Lube goes a long way!

Lube also works if you have eczema or psoriasis causing discomfort from a shirt or bra rubbing.

First Aid

You can make your own Ice packs for compression first aid needs with lube. Fill a ziplock bag… put it in a second bag for added leak protection. After you let the baggie freeze you’ll have a gel ice pack perfect for any need.

Hate Breaking In New Shoes?

The dreaded aching and torturous feeling of breaking in a new pair of shoes. Grab that lube out of the bedside drawer and rub a little on the places that rub and you’ll be as comfortable with your new purchase as you are happy to show them off!

Last Season’s Dress Shoes Looking A Little Rough?

I know I can’t be the only one who has had a last minute shoe-mergency where the only shoes that go with my outfit for an event I have to attend in 20 minutes are scuffed and grunge-looking. Silicone lube can polish latex and patent leather! This has been a shoe saver on more than one occasion for me! (Just make sure you don’t use it on LEATHER shoes!)

Knotted Chain

Digging through that jewellery box that you just toss everything into and you find a chain you’re finally ready to wear only it’s completely knotted and kinked. Use some of that bedside lube and roll the knotted chain in the fingers. This will begin to loosen the kinks in that chain.

Stubborn Price Tags

Why does this happen? Some tags pull right off no dramas, but others feel like they use a new form of super glue, that will ensure that tacky price tag is noticeable to everyone. With a very small amount of silicone lube and a touch of elbow grease, you can remove any remnants of that glue residue!

Gum Under The Table!

I have heard of restaurants that will use KY lube to remove gum from the underside of tables. Now if you’ve ever had the unpleasant job of scraping gum off a table, you’ll agree you’d try anything to make the job easier!

Ring Stuck?

Who hasn’t been in or around this situation? It can be painful and scary or hilarious depending on your sense of humor. But lube gets into those tight spaces and help reduce friction. A couple twists turns and pulls that ring should be off in no time.

Door Jams

If you hate having to jiggle and wiggle that key around your stubborn door lock, try the tiniest amount of silicone lube on the key before inserting it.

The same can be used for door hinges that squeak or are hard to open and close.

In the Shop

Pretty much anything WD-40 can be used for you can use Silicone Lube in its replacement. Mind you the effects don’t last as long, but it certainly works when you’re in a pinch. Keep it in mind next time you need to grease up your hair clippers, bike chain, rolling drawers etc.

You can even use it to grease your fishing rod! Although Silicone Lube like SuperSlyde can be used for masturbation and sex why not try using it for other purposes!

A Personal Lubricant That’s Cumming For You

Dragon Cumming For You

As I got older I realised that my black-and-white view of the world wasn’t quite realistic. Sometimes things aren’t black or white, but blurred somewhere in between. It would be more pragmatic to say that the world is in 50 Shades Of Grey, but I won’t go there. Not in this review.

What I do believe is black-and-white though, are people who love cum and people who don’t. No one just, “kind-of maybe sort of sometimes likes cum, a little bit”. You either love it or you don’t.

I love it. It’s like saying the party’s over, but we’re gonna keep on partying. And who doesn’t love a good after party? Probably people who go to bed at midnight. But I won’t get into that. Not in this review.

When I first tried Dragon Cum Lube, my co-worker Stephen came to visit me at work and had me place the product in the palm of my hand. It was incredibly realistic. It was sticky, it looked like cum, it had the exact consistency of cum, and it even smelled like cum. It was kind of beautiful. The attention to detail was extraordinary.

Lube Made To Look Like Realistic Sperm

You would honestly not be able to tell the difference between this and cum. Perhaps if you smell it for a really long time, you’ll pick up a hint of floral which may make you suspect it’s not cum. But no one’s going to do that, for fear of being branded that weirdo who goes around smelling people’s cum. And I won’t get into that. Not in this review.

Stock Lube On Hand

Next I tried the Bad Dragon Clear Cum Lube. Once again, the consistency, attention to detail and general feel was amazing. After all, it’s made to feel like cum. However, it lost points for me personally, on a visual aspect. It’s clear so it looks like saliva, and your brain would think it’s cum if your eyes were closed, but if you see it, it looks like spit. This can be hot and I don’t deny that, but I’m here for the cum and not saliva.

Both the Bad Dragon Cum Lubes are water-based which is great, and means they can be used with silicone or rubber toys and not deteriorate the toy or feel gritty.

Off the top of my head, some great situations to use these lubes in would be alone, especially if you’re going through a tough break up and you don’t want to meet people but you still want to experience cum. Or as part of safe sex play with condoms but still want to experience cum. Or as part of a porn where they’re shooting a bareback scene with one guy or girl who receives multiple loads from multiple participants to maintain the magic of cinema and make it look realistic. I could probably get further into that  – but not in this review.

Last but not least, I had the opportunity to try the Bad Dragon Foaming Antibacterial Toy Cleaner. It was literally a godsend. Well, not literally, but I happen to be anal retentive – pun intended – about hygiene. So to have a cleaner that’s anti-microbial and disinfectant was great. The best part about it was that it has a gentle foaming cleansing effect so it doesn’t feel as intrusive as some other cleaners, and it doesn’t feel like the toy soaks in the cleaner.

If it sounds weird to you that I feel like my toy has soaked in a cleaner before, it’s probably because you’re not anal retentive. Also cleaners with strong or harsh odours can leave an imprint on toys which is why Bad Dragon’s toy cleaner being odourless is perfect.

Overall, I highly recommend the Bad Dragon Cum Lube. I kind-of maybe sometimes sort of like the Clear Bad Dragon Cum Lube, a little bit, and the Toy Cleaner trumps all other cleaners that I’ve tried before. If you’re looking for a realistic cum substitute, it doesn’t get any closer than Bad Dragons Cum Lube. If you’re not a cum lover you can probably use the Clear Bad Dragon Cum Lube as lubricant and the sensation it provides is fairly similar to luxurious saliva. The cleaner is a must-have for anyone who has a toy. For the people who think that they can get away with just using soapy water on their toys, I don’t want to judge you but… I’m not going to get into that. Not in this review.

You should definitely check out a complete guide on personal lubricant to find out more information.

JoyDivision BIOglide Making Love Naturally – A Different Type of Review!

Water Based Lube

Chapter One – The Stitch Up!

Thanks JoyDivision for sending this product for review – somehow I got wrangled into receiving it as a bit of a stitch up.  Yesterday morning I walked into my office to see a cute little tube of BIO Glide on my desk with a post it note attached ‘Product to Review – Minimum 800 words’.  Heck I write a lot, I write articles for other blogs, I write content for websites, I write product descriptions and I send out products to our reviewers who will then look, feel, see the product and write an instructive review.  Up until now though, I have never been given or taken a product.

As I picked up the cute little tube I could see across my desk Stephen having a bit of a chuckle – possibly at my expense!

I said, ‘Stephen who put this on my desk this morning?’

He said, “Your wife.”

I said, “But Stephen this is not my wife’s writing.”

He said, “Oh Yeah, it was Belinda and Maria.  They were laughing whilst they were doing it.”

I said, “Right, Ok then.  I had a bit of an argument with Maria last night.  Hmmm.”

He said, “I thought it was something like that the way they were laughing.”

Hmmm, I thought!  As I picked up and looked at the bottle.  My eyesight is not that great anymore and I could not read the smaller writing so I asked, “Is this a personal lubricant or a massage lotion or both.  I can see it is water-based but if I am to do a review of the product, I guess I should know where to use it.”

Stephen took the bottle from me, examined it and said, “It’s a personal lube.”

I thanked Stephen and carried on with my work until the early afternoon when Belinda entered our office with a big smile on her face – making a surprising impression of a Cheshire cat.

I said, after picking up the BIO glide, “Did you leave this on my desk?”

She said, chuckling, “Mrs. V asked me too.  She said it is something that she would really like as it is made organically”

I said, “I have no problem doing a product review and will make sure it is over 800 words but obviously you are aware that Mrs. V and I had a bit of a spat last night so I am not sure if this is the right product that either you or she wants reviewed at this particular time”.

Belinda laughed and we discussed issues relating to business.

My wife is a lover of all things natural, organic and holistic – however those words to me often mean more expensive, deceptive and no better.  That is not to say that some products that are produced in their purest sense do not have health or other benefits but generally there is little oR no difference.  The body naturally produces toxins that will kill you.  There are over 75 chemicals that are approved to use on certified organic foods and eaten by free range animals.  Of all the certified organically produced there are basically none that have not been in contact with pesticides or chemicals, however these pesticides and chemicals are restricted to a standards list both in Australia and the United States.  Organic foods generally will not be processed using irradiation, industrial solvents or synthetic food additives.

Sorry I went off on a tangent then – but basically as far as foods are concerned there is little evidence to suggest that eating organic is better for you in fact Associate Professor Samir Samman, from the School of Molecular Bioscience at the University of Sydney, says

“there is little evidence to suggest that organic food is nutritionally better than conventional food, especially in relation to fresh fruit and vegetables.”

In a major study that has been accepted for publication in the international scientific journal Critical Reviews In Food Science And Nutrition, Professor Samman and his team

“surveyed the international literature and critically evaluated the results”

and they aren’t heartening FACTS that the organics industry wants to hear.

In fact reviews and tests have shown that many non-organic and even synthesized products contain more vitamins, are more nutritious than their ‘organic’ counterparts.

Ethical lube
Natural lube

Chapter Two – BIOGlide Lubricant

So after Belinda left and with the word organic running through my mind I decided to do a bit of research on BIO Glide.  This product is made by JoyDivision, not the English Rock/Pop Band of the 70’s, but the German sex toy company that has been around for over 20 years producing products for great sensuality.  JoyDivisioin takes the manufacture of their products seriously and dermatologically and clinically test all their products before release to ensure they are body-safe and skin friendly which is good to know.

Presently they have over 250 premium products in their brand that are sold in over 60 Countries worldwide.  Positive social and environmental impact is at the forefront of their mission statement and they are official members of Unicef, Aidshilfe and Terre Des Hommes all organizations that ethically try to better the planet.

So the first thing I noticed on the bottle was a label saying CO2 Neutral sticker.  Mmmm, this is one I had not seen before so a quick bit of research informs me that this is a voluntary commitment by a manufacturer that due to unavoidable CO2 emissions made in the manufacture of this product that they will compensate by supporting a climate protection project in Bolivia.

-Rick thinks to himself!!!- (you gave this product to the wrong person Mrs V and Belinda).

So I research this further and the only reference to this project I can find is on the JoyDivision website from which I quote –

“Sustainable trading and a voluntary commitment to preservation of the climate are a matter of course for JOYDIVISION. Unavoidable CO2 emissions from manufacturing and transport are compensated by a climate protection project in Bolivia.
JOYDIVISION is investing there in the reforestation of native species of trees with an added social and ecological benefit. This benefits not only the climate, but also the biodiversity and the local people.”

So the CO2 sticker basically means that the manufacturer voluntarily is sending an undisclosed amount of money, or resources to reforesting Bolivia.  OK, I guess that’s nice!

BIO products are said to be made of the highest standard being a 100% natural vegan lubricant suitable for vaginal and oral intercourse (am not sure why it cannot be used for anal sex?).  It is safe to use with all sex toys and condoms and is highly effect – the catch phrase of 90% of all lubricants –

“with a little going a long way”.

What is interesting is that it is naturally certified by the BDIH.  To give you a bit of a background there were all sorts of certifications going around for sex toys and lubricants but in 2014 the German Institute of Dietary Supplements and Cosmetics developed the ‘Natural Product Standard’.  This certification offers the consumer a guarantee that the product is natural and also makes BioGlide the first lubricant classified as a ‘natural medical device’.

Additional information about BIOglide lubricant is that it is pH-optimized, developed with no animal testing, has no synthetics or chemicals in it.   It has supposedly won first place in Men’s Health magazine but I could not find out what the competition it won or anything related to BIOglide’s win online and a search on the Men’s Health site for bioglide came up with no results.

Best Glycerin
Why glycerin

So let’s get to the ingredients of BIOglide.  All water-based lubricants main ingredient is glycerin which is made from animal or vegetable fats.  This is the main ingredient of BIOgllide and the others are

Aqua – Water

Sodium Lactate – Saline

Xanthan Gum – Food Additive and Thickening Agent

Levulinic Acid – is an organic compound with the formula CH₃CCH₂CH₂CO₂H. It is classified as a keto acid. This white crystalline solid is soluble in water and polar organic solvents.

Sodium Levulinate – Is the salt produced by Levulinic Acid and used as a preservative and for skin care.

Lactic Acid – is an organic compound with the formula CH₃CHCOOH. In its solid state, it is white and water-soluble. In its liquid state, it is colorless. It is produced both naturally and synthetically.

So now I had researched the product and the claims that the manufacturer it was time to do the touch taste so I removed the seal and placed the lubricant between my thumb and other fingers.  It was soft and silky the way a personal lubricant should be.  Having worked in the adult industry for close to 30 years now I have tested a few and this one felt really good.  Then I dabbed a little on my tongue and it was slightly sweet – not sickly so – and certainly not unpleasant.

 

The next test I find the most important and that is rubbing it away with a paper towel.  If it is a good lubricant there still should be a residue and surely enough the residue remained so it certainly ticks the boxes in those three tests.  So there I was looking forward to going home and as soon as we put the kids to bed taking BIOglide on a road test with Mrs. V.

Chapter Three – The Train Wreck

Getting home at 6.30pm I made a bit of an event in asking my wife how her day had been and letting her know that I had taken home the product that I had been told to review.  Intimating how exciting it would be to road test a new lubricant.  We had dear friends and their family over and it was Pizza night.  They left about 8.20pm and we then powered through ‘The Block’ having pre-recorded it -for those readers not in Australia it is a type of home renovation series and by 9.40pm the kids were doing zzz’s in bed.

Excitedly I reminded Mrs. V about the product for review and she replied, “I’m too tired. Going to bed!”

Train Crash
Train Wrecked

With a quick peck goodnight, I poured myself another drink and watched the idiot box for another hour or so and then went to be as well.

 

So unfortunately Belinda and Mrs. V I am unable to present you with a full product review at this stage but await in anticipation to be allowed the avenue to fully test it.  That will make Chapter Four of the BIOglide review for the adultsmart blog.

Chapter Four – The Pre Test

So the following night – having presented Belinda and Mrs. V with my half-completed review via email I returned home after work at about 6.15pm in the evening.  Dinner had been prepared and was awaiting serving in the oven,  Mrs. V was with a friend on the balcony and I said ‘hello’ to them both giving my wife a quick peck on the lips.

I began walking back to the lounge-room when Mrs. V called out, ‘I have been getting phone calls from people telling me to read your review.”

I said, “Well you would have received a phone call from only one person as I only emailed the non-complete review to Belinda and you.  So what did Belinda have to say?”

She said, “That I have to read it!  I haven’t had the chance as I have had people with, all day.”

I said, “No drama.”

I played with the kids, and then we had dinner about 7pm. Just for some irrelevant information it was oven baked Chicken and baked lemon potatoes.  Actually quite yummy.

After dinner and washing up Mrs. V said, “I read your review. ”

I said,  “Did you like it?”

She said, “Sure, I guess we better road test the product so you can complete your review!”

I said, “That sounds like a plan.”

Chapter Five – The Road Test

After we put the kids to bed we lay on the couch and watched a mind numbing movie that Mrs V for some reason enjoyed.  It was called Due Date with Robert Downey Junior and the guy from Hangover.  I was not a great fan of the hangover series of movies and found this one even less impressive, but the wife liked it, so I tolerated it as it gave her some joy and laughs.  It finished at 10.30am and we then sat on the balcony and chewed the fat for about 30 minutes and then went to bed with my trusty container of BIOglide by my side.

 

After doing the mandatory brushing of teeth and other functions for hygiene and the body we went to bed and I asked, “Have you got one of your friends handy”.

Look, I am a firm believe in sensual foreplay, giving a gentle erotic massage, some passionate kissing, exploring each others bodies so that both our desires are raised when the actual act takes place.   However, this we do when we have an hour (or a couple) to spare and explore each other to become more connected.  Sorry, after 11pm, and after a hard days work I am not that romantic person and will call in the big guns to help in the foreplay department.

Incorporating sex toys into our foreplay and love making techniques allows us to have fast sex without it feeling like a

‘wham bam, thank you ma’am’!

So Mrs. V grabbed one of her favorite Romant toys.  I grabbed the BIOglide and liberally applied it to the toy and gently lubricated her.  Maria likes mostly to use sex toys externally and is not big on inserting them, so my mate Romant went to work whilst I enjoyed the show.  After she was suitably turned on I applied the BIOglide to myself and we were intimate with each other.

Personally I am not a big fan of water based lubricants and I will tell you why.  Recently I read the results of a survey – it revealed that men that orgasmed during sex in under 4 minutes are said to have premature ejaculation problems.  Those that lasted between 4-12 minutes are considered normal.  Personally, I very rarely ejaculate in under 12 minutes and when we have time (and are not tired) enjoy have marathon sessions.

That being the case most water based lubricants dry up within a ten minute period and need re-application frequently thereafter.  As you reapply it dries quicker and becomes sticky, a feeling I find a total turn-off and to be quite honest quite disgusting.  We tend you use silicone lubricants as they

“last and last, and a little goes a long way”

as most lube product claim to – silicone actually does. But I have digressed again.

On application, like my previous test it was silky smooth – and to be quite honest was almost as good in feeling as a silicone lubricant.  It felt good and natural on the skin and it was all thumbs up from the starting point.  Unfortunately come around the 8 minute mark it began to become sticky and glammy and by the 10 minute mark we were re-applying.

This is a perfect lubricant for those that want to be intimate for 10 minutes or under.  For anybody that likes longer sessions I rate it 3 out of 5 because of the initial feeling and it is what I have come to expect from the majority of water based lubes on the market..

Mrs. V comments were, ‘It was really sticky – I don’t rate it.”  So I guess she is a harsher critic than me – or she has been spoiled too long with the use of Silicone lubricants.  Surprising though as it was ORGANIC!
