A BRIEF ACCOUNT OF A COCKTAIL FLAVOURED LUBRICANT AND ITS EFFECTS ON MY STATE OF INEBRIATION
A Report by Carly "Pleasure" Drew
ID Juicy Lube Pina Colada Flavoured Lubricant is a 108ml, thick, plastic tube of clear water-based lubricant that stresses the point that it is "for topical cosmetic use only" - which is nearly as polite as saying "use it on your mimsy".
The tube is garish in design and busy with pictures of pineapples, flowers and what appears to be some sort of clam. There is no clam, mussel or any other sea-dwelling mollusc listed in the ingredients, so I will assume that it's purely there for the intention of evoking mental imagery of beaches, holidays and cocktails by the pool.
Upon opening the tube, I instantly recognise the smell of Pina Colada - a mixture of rum, coconut and pineapple juice. It has undertones of sweet maraschino cherries. It's almost syrupy and elegant in essence. It reminds me of evenings with classy beginnings and rather messy ends.
Television presenter, actress, sex expert and author of The Greatest Sex Tips in the World, Julie Peasgood helped out with a feature on The Alan Titchmarsh Show yesterday about the evolution of sex.
During the feature, she explained how cornflakes were originally developed by Dr. Kellogg as a food to lower the libido and how condoms were initially tested for strength by being able to hold the weight of a chair!
We personally think that the electronic testing that condoms go through nowadays is a much better form of trial!
She also went into detail about massager vibrators, such as the Hitachi Magic Wand, and how by the 1980s they had become intimate massagers as opposed to just a product to ease back pain!
Eastenders' Stacey Slater wore a rather fantastic tight, gold catsuit for Bradley's Bond-themed 21st birthday bash in the show last week! Stacey, played by actress Lacey Turner, dons the slinky costume and sets about wow-ing everyone at the party in it!
The Green Blog has just posted an article called Safe Sex Toys Revisited which aimed to updated its readers with information about sex toys and health (following up scares about sex toys and phthalates).
Despite the blog's best intentions, it wasn't entirely accurate or helpful, and still trotted out the totally unsubstantiated line that "sex toys could be cancerous".
You are definitely right to care about what your sex toys are made of just as you should care about what's in your food.
But there is a lot of misinformation and scaremongering on this topic and even Violet Blue's comments reported in the Green Blog aren't entirely accurate.

"My boyfriend goes wild with my hand job with a twist.
Let your man lie on his back with his penis resting on his stomach and take your hand and cup his testicles gently.
Then, using your other hand, move the palm of the hand up and down the underside of the penis.
Once he is getting excited, make a ring with your thumb and forefinger and use this to pump up and down with it. When you get to the top, close the ring.
Now allow him to squeeze his way in as you slide back down to the bottom. I recommend using lube for messy fun!"
Give him a special treat with a Masturbation Lube.
Philips, the well known makers of televisions, telephones and kettles, have decided to branch out into the world of marital aids.
The first product from the new range is one for couples, namely the Philips Intimate Dual Massager HF8400.
The Philips Massagers are non-penetrative, vibrating toys that are designed with functionality and quality in mind for a vibrator that's a joy, rather than an embarrassment, to buy!
There are multiple vibration modes that are perfect for exploring and teasing each others' sweet spots.
Team it up with a slick and satisfying water-based lube or silicone-based lube for an exceptionally enhanced experience!
It also comes with a discreet, cordless, charging case, much like the Fun Factory Delight Rechargeable Massager, that allows you to recharge your toys all day for long-lasting playtime in the evening!
