THE THEORIES AND FINDINGS FROM THE TASTING OF A FREEZABLE INTIMATE LUBRICANT AND MASSAGE GEL
A Report by Carly "Pleasure" Drew
Durex Play 2 in 1 Massage Melts are individually packaged 75ml sachets of clear liquid that can be frozen and used as part of an icy cool massage or simply used as an intimate lubricant.
A SHORT REPORT ON THE TEXTURE AND TASTE OF A COMBINATION MASSAGE MOUSSE AND LUBRICANT
A Report by Carly "Pleasure" Drew
Durex Play 2 in 1 Massage Mousse is a 100ml canister of foam-like liquid that is designed to be used firstly as a massage enhancer and secondly as a lubricant.
The can is pretty and sleek with a purple and white printed bubble design. It resembles a tube of deodorant spray or hair mousse, which I realise could potentially lead to some confusion if grabbed from the bathroom cabinet in a hurry in the morning.
Upon opening the tube I realise it's not going to be easy to dispense - the button is stiff and requires some serious force to get it to work. Unfortunately this also makes the mousse spray out in a rather violent manner coating my black shirt in some rather suspicious white stains and ricocheting into my eye, resulting in much squinting and the desperate search for something that isn't covered in mousse to wipe it with.
It also doesn't help that the sound it makes when the dispensing button is depressed is exceptionally loud, causing a lot of attention to be drawn to myself in a very quiet office. The sound is similar to that of a shaken up can of fizzy drink exploding, except without the muttered curse words afterwards.
Whether you want a little user-friendly advice or a full on debate on the merits of certain toys, the Lovehoney Community Forums are the place to be!
This week has seen some very interesting and lively discussion ranging from product suggestions to a written tour of the Lovehoney office!
If any of this sounds right up your street or you fancy taking a quick peek into a lively and burgeoning online forum, then have a look at the following suggested threads:
An old thread that keeps getting revived, and for good reason, is The Anal Sex for Beginners, Any Advice? thread. It's filled with great tips on how to have an enjoyable anal experience.
Which pump? Is another very informative thread that aims to help you in choosing the right pussy pump for you or your partner. With a mixture of official and tried-and-tested advice, you're sure to get the perfect fit for you!
The Magazines thread has sparked some interesting conversation on what different peoples reading preferences are! And it appears that there's not much difference between what men and women like!
Laura Leu, freelancer for the New York Press, was asked to report on the subject of 'teledildonics' - the new technology in cyber sex that enables sex toys to be controlled by a computer.
The article was originally to inform readers how these tools could improve the cyber-sex life they shared with their long-distance partner but it soon became a bizarre lesson in male sex toys!
As Laura explained:
"I went with the Virtual Sex Machine, or VSM, a $400 piece of equipment defined on its website as "an interactive virtual reality sexual stimulation system."
Translation: It's a robotic vagina that synchronizes to porn. The VSM comes with a specially encoded erotic film, shot from the viewer's perspective, which allows you to experience the scene as if it's happening to you."
