My boyfriend and I are always keen to try new things in the bedroom, flavoured lubricants included! Durex Very Cherry is one of the newer flavours in the Durex range and I was desperate to try it when I saw it on the Ann Summers website. I actually ended up picking it up from Boots last week and I don't regret it one bit!
The lubricant comes in the same 50ml pump bottle as the Durex Play Heat, Tingle and Feel lubricants. Through past experience, I've found that these pump bottles can be a bit hit or miss with whether they work or not, and we usually have to end up ripping the plastic off of the bottle to unscrew the top as the pump fails to work. Surprisingly, the bottle of cherry lubricant that we are currently using seems to have a working pump but I figured it couldn't hurt to throw out a warning that the pump may not work every time.
The bottle itself is a lovely cherry red colour with images of cherries all over it. I find that it looks a bit childish (although this product is certainly not for children!) and would prefer a more subtle design on the bottle, but that's just me being picky. The back of bottle tells you that the lubricant is suitable for oral, vaginal and anal sex and can be used with all Durex condoms with no issues. It also points out that it is sugar free and contains no nutritional value so those of you on a diet (like me!) don't have to worry about consuming too much of it.
The lubricant inside is clear in colour and has a silky gel-like consistency, similar to most lubricants on the market. As soon as you pump some out of the bottle, the sweet aroma of cherries is highly noticeable and if you weren't in the mood for a bit of fun already, then you will be after smelling this! Of course like any fruit flavoured product, this doesn't smell or taste like genuine cherries, but tastes more like a sweeter version of Cherry Chapstick (my first thought was that it tasted exactly like a cocktail I'd had at TGI Fridays, but the name of it has slipped my mind). Due to this being a new flavour for us, we didn't want to just go straight for it and find out that it was disgusting, so my boyfriend pumped a little onto his finger for me to lick off to get the initial taste. Delicious! It was sweet, fruity and didn't feel too slimy in my mouth - what were we waiting for?
We decided to use two pumps of the lubricant for my boyfriend's penis, but we found that a little goes a long way in terms of oral sex and the flavour that comes from this lubricant, so in future will only be using one pump. I'm happy to be able to report that the flavour doesn't disappear as soon as it comes into contact with your mouth, but actually stayed around for the whole time making the whole experience that little bit more pleasurable. Since using this lubricant, oral sex has become a much more regular part of our sex life and I sometimes practically have to beg him to let me perform oral sex on him - he has no complaints!
My only concern with this lubricant is that it doesn't say anything about tingling or warming on the bottle, but my boyfriend did experience a little warming sensation (stronger than the warming sensation that would naturally occur) and by the end of it, the tip of my tongue had gone a little tingly and numb. This wasn't really an issue for us, but it would have been useful for Durex to say that this could happen on the bottle.
The bottle does however state that the lubricant is non-sticky. It lied. It really did lie. This lubricant is only really suitable for use if you have access to a shower or somewhere to clean up directly afterwards - unless you like the tacky, glue-like feeling you'll be left with on your skin.
The 50ml bottle will cost you £4 from Ann Summers and £4.16 from Boots, I believe. Considering only one pump of this is needed at a time, I think the bottle will last a decent length of time, but that all depends on how often you decide to use it!
Overall, the stickiness of the product really makes no difference to how much I love this product. The taste is delicious, the consistency is perfect, it is cheap as chips and it the new excitement that comes from the different flavours is great! Highly recommended.
Thanks for reading!
