A SHORT DISSERTATION ON AN ALMOST INFAMOUS JAPANESE LUBRICANT
A Report by Carly "Pleasure" Drew
Tenga Real Hole Lotion is a 170ml tube of clear, water-based lubricant designed for use with the Tenga Flip Hole Masturbator but can also be used for regular masturbation and sex, too.
The packaging matches the general style of the Tenga range - sleek, smooth and classy. This is what I consider myself to be, apart from on a Friday night when I'm doing the robot and singing along to Abba.
Standing the tube up-right provides fascinating visuals as the air bubbles slowly float to the surface. This is an effect that I like to call the lubricant lava-lamp phenomena.
The "Real" statement in the title of the lubricant is supposed to refer to the realistic sensations it provides. It doesn't smell very real, unless your vagina happens to smell rather floral, but I won't hold that against Tenga Real Hole Lotion as it's actually a rather pleasant aroma.

According to research, August 27th is officially the most unromantic day of the year!
British couples are less likely to say "I love you", book a table for two in restaurants and buy champagne today than on any other day of the year - yet are more likely to argue and get divorced.
This may be due to a slump in mood after the Monday Bank Holiday excitement, being approximately at the furthest point from Valentine's Day in the calendar, or even just a general mid-week feeling of apathy!
Lovehoney wants to help give cupid a helping hand and inject some fun and romance back into your love life on this dreary August day, so here are some fantastic suggestions for you!
A SCIENTIFIC STUDY ON THE TASTE, TEXTURE AND SIDE EFFECTS OF AN INTIMATE LUBRICANT
A Report by Carly "Pleasure" Drew
Sliquid Swirl Glycerin Free Blue Rasperry Flavoured Lubricant is a 125ml bottle of clear water based gel which looks somewhat like bubble bath. I love a good bubble bath, especially whilst eating marshmallows, so this particular taste test already seems promising.
The short, rather cute looking bottle has lovely graphics and a lid that matches the packaging. This co-ordination of colours pleases me, especially as I notice that it also matches the bottle of water and tissues sat on my desk. I will put them all together to create a lovely display for anyone who chooses to visit me in my corner of the office.
Upon opening the sealed bottle, there is a faint, yet delicious fruity scent. I am slightly perplexed at the name of this product as it is listed as "blue raspberry". From my previous research, I would have assumed a blue raspberry was in fact a blueberry. However, the smell is more of a general berry odour and, depending on your preference, can be assumed to be raspberry, blueberry or even blackberry.

THE MERITS AND OPPOSING VIRTUES OF A GERMAN ERECTION IMPROVEMENT CREAM
A Report by Carly "Pleasure" Drew
Penix Active Size Up Cream is a 75ml tube of opaque cream, similar in consistency to that of a mushy banana that's been sat in the glove compartment of your car far too long. The unassuming tube is navy and black in colour with a white screw top lid. The only graphics, aside from the text, is a black and white photograph of a rather muscular man with a mass of pubic foliage. He has subtly covered his weiner with his own arm.
Upon opening the sealed tube, there is a faint smell of cinnamon. This is most pleasurable and reminds me of cinnamon swirl pastries, leading to symptoms of hunger and daydreaming.
My theory is that this penis enhancer, although delicious in scent and rather dull in consistency, will have a taste that is similar to eating a bowl of Cinnamon Grahams (now known as Curiously Cinnamon - a tasty wholegrain cereal that is dusted with cinnamon that gives you such a sugar-rush you can see through time itself).
