As you've probably guessed, this is a cherry flavoured lube! It's made by Durex and is one of the products in there 'Play' range. I'm sure most people will know what a lube is used for, but to briefly explain, it's used to make sexual intercourse much more comfortable, with it easing any dryness. I don't have a problem with discomfort during sex, but as me and my boyfriend are always experimenting with new lubes, condoms and toys, i thought this would be a fun product to try out. I first heard about it after a friend told me about it, and even went as far as saying it was so tasty she'd eat it as a snack! I was impressed, because most of the flavoured lubes i've tried in the past have tasted like splenda flavoured hair gel.
I typed the product name - Durex Play Very Cherry Intimate Lube in to google and did a bit of research, to make sure it'd be something i'd actually use and not just shove in the draw. I also wanted to check that it was water based. I was impressed upon reading as it explained how it is indeed water based, can be easily washed off and can be used for vaginal, anal and oral sex. I purchased a 50ml bottle from my local Lloyd's Pharmacy for a reasonable £4 and brought it home to have a play with!
The design of the pump bottle is really girly and to imagine a man buying this (even though it's as much of a mans product as a womens product), is quite odd. It's bright pink with the durex logo and it's clear that it's a product in the 'Play' range as this is stated below the durex logo. It has a picture of cherries above the font stating that it's 'Verry Cherry' flavour.
Opening the pump was easily achieved by simply twisting it, as instructed on the back of the bottle. I then squeezed out a 10p size blob and massaged on my hands to ensure it was nice and warm, and applied it onto my boyfriend. Without been too graphic, my boyfriend throroughly enjoyed it and said that it didn't burn, or cause him any kind of discomort. The taste of the lube was a strong, sweet flavour, and it was definetly obvious that the flavour was cherry. At first i'll admit i enjoyed the taste, but after a while it became sickly and a bit too overpowering, so we washed it off. I was happy with the fact that it did what it said though, unlike other products, and did infact make things alot more fun and tasty! Using the lube as an actual lube, and not a novelty oral sex toy, was great and it provided plenty of moisture and warmed up well. I applied a large blob to a ribbed condom and it didn't rub off or become blobbed up on one part of the condom either. It wasn't sloppy or runny and had a thick consistency. Washing it off the skin was nice and easy and it left no stickiness, and me and my boyfriend both felt no discomfort or soreness.
Overall, i'd reccomend it. It smells and tastes of cherries just as claimed so there's no false claims on Durex's part. It's really fun to use and pretty tasty, it states on the bottle that it's sugar free, but it's definetly extremely sweet and can be a bit too much and ruin the mood because of the overpoweringly cherry sugary taste, however if you like that sort of thing then this is the product for you! It's not too expensive as long as it's a once in a while kind of product, as at £4 for 50ml, it'd soon get expensive if you took a liking to it and used it every few days! Acts well as a lube, doesn't contain spermicide nor does it act as a contreception (obvious to most but thought i'd make that fact very clear!)
If you decide to buy this product and either you or your partner feel any discomfort, such as itchiness, then it's best to wash it straight off and not use it again. Saying that though, i have very sensetive skin and i was fine with it.
Summary: A Nice Treat
