***Obligatory Warning- this review contains themes of a very sexual nature****
Despite having been together for quite some time now, the sexual part of mine and my husband's relationship is quite active. We also like to play quite a bit, so the Love Honey shop is where I tend to go to shop for certain supplies as they have a very good inventory and decent customer service.
Now, friction during sex is great, and while I admit to liking a bit of a burn, when putting certain objects in particular cavities, lube is a definite must. Not just any lube will do either. Given where it is going to be used, the materials any toys are made of, and any allergies the user(s) may have, if you're using condoms (or no), you have to be careful just what you use. Having a good many silicone toys, I chose a safe water based lubricant. Admittedly this is advertised as an anal lubricant, but it can actually be used vaginally as well.
As Love Honey is an online shop once I paid, I had to wait a couple of days for it to arrive (literally- it was all of 2 days), and the lubricant came well packaged with the two new toys the other half added to the order., with nothing rolling about and no labels or printing on the outside screaming "sex shop!" Even the label looked so innocently vanilla, I had to suppress a smile. The lubricant itself comes in a clear see through bottle with a pump style top, rather like some hand lotions. Unlike the pumps on the Durex lubricants, it did not require one hand to hold and another to firmly press, so adding additional lubricant during play is simple and easy. Just be careful though, as the lubricant flows quite easily and too vigorous a pump will definitely give you more lube than you bargained for.
Consistency wise we've both been quite impressed. It's as slick as many excellent silicone body lubes, but not so slippery that toys slide away. Unlike many other water based lubes, Durex included, we found this doesn't go dry nor tacky, so once you've applied the correct amount, you're good to go without need of re-application. When used vaginally, I found no later irritation but if engaging in oral sex, be aware that this product is tasteless, so if you prefer a bit of flavour, you'd best look to another lube for this part of your fun. Where this lube really comes into its own though is anally. Whether applied to aid stretching and then either on a toy or penis, the satiny feel greatly enhanced this lube's performance.
An added bonus is that this is a bio-static lube- that means that any bacteria, yeast infection wotsits or fungal spores it possibly encounters will be stopped from spreading. In addition, as it's water based and colour-free, if you happen to get any on the sheets, it washes off without leaving a stain, even if using a cold quick wash cycle (it's also glycerine free). Given the performance, versatility and overall quality of the lube, a 250 ml bottle is well worth the £9.99 price tag.
