Advantages: A new feeling to try out
Disadvantages: A bit uncomfortable depending where you use it
Lubricant is a great thing. I'm one of those guys who needs a little lube down there so I like to try all the different kinds. I got this and the tingle lubricant for my Christmas from my partner at the time. The partner is gone but the lube lingers on.
The bottle is quite nice, other lube bottles I have look a little gross and far too clinical. This lube is for fun and you can see that straight away. Im not a huge fan of the size of the bottle to be honest as its quite expensive (about a fiver unless you get it on offer) for the amount you get (specially considering you can get lubricants for free from your doctor round here).
The pump is a good shape and doesn't tend to drip or get clogged like some other pumps can do so it doesn't really waste any (again, considering the amount you get, good thing!)
In saying that they don't give much in the bottle, I must also add that it has a pretty short shelf life. You have three months to use the whole bottle once you've opend it before they recommend you get rid of it.
Smell wise this lubricant doesn't smell bad, it doesn't really smell that much at all as far as I can tell! This would be more down to your personal preference anyway since we all have smells we hate and smells we love.
The heat lubes are always a bit worrying for me, I'm sure we've all heard of that uncomfortable burn (at least if your friends are as dirty as mine, you have)
As it so happens this one doesn't really do much for me. It IS slightly warmer than other lubes but I'd imagine the same effect could be reached by sitting a bottle of lubricant on a radiator for a few minutes.
It tells me on the front that all I need to do is "Blow to enhance" but again, I didn't feel any different sensation. If anything it cooled me down (as you would expect blowing to do)
On the flip side (literally) when I was using this with my partner, he said that it gave him a somewhat uncomfortable feeling, simmilar to having just had the squits. When he used it on me, I understood exactly what he was talking about. I'd say if you are going to be using this on your bottom, test the water a little first to make sure you can handle the feeling.
The lube can also be used orally and is very, VERY sweet. Great if you have a sweet tooth, not so great if you have an aversion to sugar. I just about went into a coma when I tasted this stuff.
One thing I must comment on is the texture! It's water soluable (and therefore condom friendly, yay for safe sex!) but it feels like more like an oil based lube (which I personally prefer) It's very silky and smooth (as I'm sure it boasts on the bottle somewhere) and lasts quite a while compaired to a lot of other water based lubes.
Another point to make is that with lubricants such as this, they can be used all over the body. My partner preferred this as a massage aid than a lubricant. The heat (if you can feel it) works on any area you are willing to try it on.
I wouldn't be able to comment on the female experiance of this lube because... well... I'm not female. So this may still be good for the girls, but boys wont get half as much fun out of it.
Over all, I wouldnt say it's the best thing for guys to enjoy, but also not to write it off till you try it. Everyone's bodies react in different ways so you never know, you might get a kick or two from it. Try it once and go from there!
