WET’s Warming Lube

Well well well, I’ve almost completed a list of the sexy items out there in the world. Just below me lies a lube review, and somewhere ahead of me…anal reviews. I’d like to believe I have really accomplished something here! Thank you, thank you.

So begins my review on WET’s Warming Intimate Lubricant. The lube is in a pretty standard 3.7oz bottle, and it has a nice flip-top lid. I don’t have to sit for hours undoing the thing before I use it, so a flip lid is always a nice gesture. It also doesn’t leak, which is great because there is nothing worse than a.) losing what you’ve invested in and b.) cleaning that shit up. I think the little tab that inserts into the bottle itself does the trick? Anyway, thank you WET. The shape of the bottle is pretty  nice too, it has a little indented section for you to hold it by and that is not something I’ve come across too may times in lube bottles. However, the bottle itself isn’t actually THAT appealing; the holographic red label on the front is kind of….disarming? It’s just that it’s not that appealing for the purpose of sex because it actually kind of looks like little neurons in the brain firing off. I guess it would be appealing maybe if you’re into that kind of sci-fi stuff when you’re getting down? I guess maybe it is a very literal representation of what is going on when you are  using this lube, what with the endorphins and stuff letting loose, but it’s just not that appealing. I personally like to be tantalized by the things I used in my sexual adventures.  It actually made me have to blink a lot, so I avoid actually looking at the label (so weird haha).

The smell of the lube is a little..different I guess. Originally I thought it maybe smelt like chocolate, as sometimes there is a distinct scent when products are trying to imitate chocolate. However, I found out that it is NOT actually chocolate that they are trying to portray, rather it is just the scent of the warming agent. Kinda freaky if you ask me. I didn’t, and still don’t know if I should be happy that it smells chocolatey anyway. The taste – not good. Please don’t ingest it. Sure, it’s instantly warming, but honestly it tastes like burnt hair. I just tasted it just now to confirm and again, don’t you dare eat it.

The label says it is doctor recommended, which is nice. I hope this is one of those companies that actually means what they print on there bottles. Howeverrrr, this bad boy has Glycerin in it, the cousin to glucose! And that kids, can cause yeast infections. I also don’t understand why it is in this product because it doesn’t taste sweet at all. I also has Propylparaben, and as I mention in my review below, Paraben’s are preservatives! Noooo please don’t preserve my vagina artificially.

The consistency is nice, it isn’t too oily and isn’t too watery. It lasts an alright amount of time, but I had to apply it several times when I was giving a hand job. However if you decide to use it for sex, your natural lube and this together would create a long lasting lube extravaganza.

The lube itself is pretty nice, it warms on contact as described and isn’t very thick upon application. However, I did find that it almost got too warm when my boyfriend and I were having sex. Foreplay – just dandy, but sex is just too much. My boyfriend actually lost his erection because he said it was just too weird feeling – so, THANKS WET. Geeez. In all honesty though, I didn’t find it too warm during sex, and when I used it solo it was even less warm as there isn’t as much body heat/friction going on. All in all – maybe save it for handjobs and solo sack sessions.

In totality, I would give this lube a 7 out of 10. I’m not exactly a major major fan of warming lubes as they have actually been an assailant in multiple erection-losing circumstances, but the lube actually does what it says it does. So, there’s that.

Intimate Organics Intense Clitoral Stimulating Gel – orgasm in a bottle, people!

, , , , , ,

Onto some more exciting things! The other night I decided to try out Intimate Organics’ Intense Clitoral Stimulating Gel, and all in all I was quiteee impressed. I’ve kind of had mixed positive and negative experiences with clitoral gels, so this was absolutely a comforting experience. I thought that maybe I was desensitized or something  *whimper*, but alas, I am still completely functioning. I guess I always expected that all clitoral gels should work on me somehow, and when some didn’t it was discomforting because a.) I paid for this damn thing, and b.) because why shouldn’t it? Intimate Organics Intense Clit gel put my little worries to rest again!

The small 1oz (or 30mL) tube comes in a small box with a classy little picture on the front. I kind of really enjoy packaging that doesn’t throw the image of a vagina or penis at me because, yes, I am trying to be discreet in some ways. The image is of a half-naked female torso with a small band of stems or leaves across the stomach. And as much as this is a simple classy package, I noticed after staring it for a while that the body is actually quite moist alongside the stems/leaves. This made me emit a little “Ooohhh” because it’s a nice idea of having discreet packaging with a little hidden edge to it. The box also lists the ingredients on one side (helpful, in case I want to Google any of these exotic terms), and on the other size it gives a sum up of the things it does NOT contain, which is part of Intimate Organics’ charm. It does not contain paraben’s (preservatives people! which are almost always found in cosmetics) or menthol (which actually an irritant and what makes you “tingle”). Instead, Intimate Organics uses natural Japanese peppermint oil to make that natural tingle happen!  The Intense Clit gel also comes with a screw-bottom opening, which isn’t a major inhibitor or anything when you’re getting down to business. It only takes me about 3 small twists and it’s off. Smaller bottle = less opening effort .

 The scent of the clear gel is actually quite nice . I’m a fan of peppermint scented things, even down to my shampoo, so it’s a very nice and refreshing aromatic scent from me. Also, the nice thing about actually SMELLING what is the working agent in a product is kind of a key component to me. The non-scented gels out there are menthol and chemical based and have almost zero smell, which you know is just another level of cover up because natural things have a smell! Also, the idea of “oil” in anything sometimes  makes people nervous about staining their sheets or panties, but I found no residue on any of my fabric items after a quick wash. The gel also has no taste, which isn’t an issue because in reality I don’t think this is a product you’re meant to lick off of someone. Save that for the flavored lubes, friends.

I’m also super pleased with the fact that Intimate Organics is what it is, it’s organic and also vegan-friendly. I’m kind of a nervous wreck when it comes to worrying about what kind of crap I’m pumping into my body without knowing it. For instance, didn’t realize the LAST thing on the list of ingredients for an Egg McMuffin is egg! Guh. So, the fact that I get to use a product on my most sensitive and most prized private parts that is natural and safe is a huge turn-on for me. I actually didn’t even know that any gels or lubes out there used chemicals like menthol or aluminum until I read up on stuff on Intimate Organics website. I still am planning on using up the lubricants and gels I have because, well, I’m not wealthy and I need to use up what I have, but I do plan on keeping a closer eye on what the eff I put in or on myself.

Now, in terms of its effectiveness, Intimate Organics has produced a very natural and very s-t-t-t-t-iimmmulating gel. The directions informed me to put a pea-sized amount on my finger and massage into my clit, but I accidentally squeezed a little more out. No harm done though! The nice thing about not using a chemical is that if you use more than initially directed, you wont suffer from horrible irritation. Any stimulating gel has always left me a little nervous in my first initial applications, but with this product I felt very safe and at ease with it’s use, and therefore felt like a pro from start to finish. The sensation is a nice light cooling feeling, and if you wait around 3 minutes and then start to play you can really notice a certain special stimulation arising,. I paired this gel with my small finger bullet vibrator, and I instantly got better results than using my vibrator solo. I reached orgasm a helllllll of a lot quicker, and it was a powerful and looooonnng one. I was actually wondering if this was just a mix of a nice gel on top of the chance of a long orgasm, but when I used it again later on I had the same result! BAM, found a friend for life.

All in all, I would have to say Initimate Organics Intense Clitoral Gel is a good 10 out of 10 for me. I know they also make a Gentle Clitoral Gel, but I believe that’s reserved for those who are sensitive and experience stimulation very easily, whereas I do like a little extra. I would suggest this to be paired either with a small vibrator, or with the Hitachi Mystic Wand if you want to be damn CRAZY, and especially during a sexy romp where you can have some pubic-bone rubbing action with a partner. The majority of orgasms I experience during intercourse with the boyfriend are from the dual stimulation, so having this gel to give me that extra responsiveness is a huge friggen favor to both him and I.

Hitachi Magic Wand… who could resist you?

I decided to start my WordPress sex-toy reviewing career with the “Cadillac” of all vibrators – the Hitachi Magic Wand (cue choir singing). I know a lot of people have reviewed this baby because, hello, it’s been around for ages for both sexual and massaging purposes; but I just wanted the opportunity to talk about one of the best.things.ever.

Everyone and their grandmother (literally) has seen one of these things, and many people have discovered the benefits of owning such an item. Given that it was released in the 1970s, this badboy originally started as a muscle massager but quickly – very quickly I’m sure – became used for much more sexy purposes. Personally, when I first used this thing for more, ahem, personal use, I had the smallest bit of hesitation because I DEFINITELY know my grandparents had a version of this back in the day. But given the more sleek look and the fact that I had just bought it, I was able to quickly rationalize with myself that this was my own and that they were very different. So for any of you out there who are having a hard time getting past the old massager past, there is a very loud and bright light at the end of the tunnel!

The Hitachi is big, like half your arm in length. It isn’t the thickest thing, so don’t worry about wrapping your hands around it, but it certainly can be heavy to some. I wouldn’t worry about holding it for too long though because the intense vibrations this thing produces will have you splayed out and satisfied in no time! However, its huge size makes it a little harder to hide. I once heard the suggestion of keeping it in a large cosmetics bag, which sounds pretty good. Or you have the option to keep it in the box you bought it in. I keep mine in my aforementioned sexy drawer on a nice, clean towel!

The head of the Hitachi is made out of vinyl, which isn’t typical for sexual massagers because of the porous material. But then again, this item isn’t necessarily made for that. The best fix is to either slip a condom on the head (can be a little tough to manage at first) or to buy the silicone extensions they make for it. In my case,  know that this massager will only be used with me, so I don’t have to super worry about sanitary purposes and I simply stick to a toy cleaner. Though, if you are planning to be nice and share with others, you might want to consider cleaning the head with a very diluted bleach/water/gentle soap mixture. Also, don’t submerge the Hitachi in any liquid as it is NOT waterproof and you can totally ruin your new favorite toy. Stick to mild washing on the vibrating head itself, either with a small amount of water or with a soft cloth! Also, you can use any kind of lube with it as I’ve come to read on other reviews, but I would maybe stick to water-based or organic lubes. There are tons out there anyway so I’m sure you won’t have any trouble finding something to use on there. If you want some extra punch (I don’t know if you’ll need it!!) you could also use an organic-based clitoral gel. Organic because yes, I’m not sure how menthol-based gels work with the vinyl head.

The Hitachi is a corded massager/vibrator, so you will need to be somewhere near an outlet in order to plug it in, but the cord is actually moderately long. Probably no extension cords needed! The benefit of having this plugged in friend is that you don’t have to go out and buy tons of batteries, nor do you have to worry about it dying halfway through your amazing orgasm.

This massager is also not very discreet at all. I wouldn’t suggest using this bad boy if there is anybody home who you would mind hearing all the crazy moans and hum’s coming from your bedroom. As mentioned, this thing isn’t manufactured to necessarily be a sex toy so the makers aren’t really focusing on discreetness. However, if you do get some time alone or live on your own/with a partner, then this product is really awesome for all the sexy purposes you can imagine. The payoff is worth the loudness.Image

The Hitachi only has two speeds, they are considered by the makers to be “low” and “high”, though some may refer to them as “omigod sooo goooood I can hearrr myyy vooiiceee shakkkinggg” and “omigodomigodomigodomigod is this really happening.”  If you’re very sensitive, this product might be better for you to use through a towel, or if it is placed down on a surface to which you can lower yourself down on lightly. In my experiences with the Hitachi, I have found that the low speed is good for all the way through to orgasm! The first time I used it, I was literally floored at how amazing it felt. The feeling is super hot intense, that’s all there really is to it. The vibrations aren’t pin-point centralized on the clitoris as it’s a medium-sized massage head, but the dispersed vibrations are intense enough that you will definitely reach orgasm through clitoral stimulation anyway! Lots of people have said that the Hitachi gives quick and powerful orgasms, and that really is the main thing it delivers. I only find that I need to use the high speed if I am looking for multiple orgasms and/or to test my boundaries. I wouldn’t suggest using this bad boy everyyyy time you want to orgasm, as the crazy vibes may leave you feeling a bit desensitized, but it really is quite the amazing shocker to have used on you or on a partner.

So, is the Hitachi Magic Wand a gem to have in your sex toy collect? Oh hell ya. It’s structure might not make it look like it’s 100% made for sexy purposes, but it’s powerful function certainly makes it seem so! It just works so well and so to the point that it’s really crazy to have no at least tried one of these. They also retail for anywehre from $50-$80 dollars, so something so decently priced for such fantastic fun is totally worth the trade. All in all, if you’re looking to either work out some kinks in your neck, or in the bedroom, this product is abbbsolutely a must friggen have.

My first review! Oh boy.

Ok I apologize that this first review is a bad one, but it’s the first thing I grabbed out of my secret, sexy, hidden, must-never-be-found, big as hell sex drawer. Today’s product is: Swede’s Flower Power, Herbal Aphrodisiac, Spiritual Massage Oil. The scent is apparently Grapefruit Palmarosa Petitgrain but there ain’t nothin cirtus about it! I have seriously contemplated the idea that this oil spoiled before I had the chance to use it because it smells pretty bad. It’s almost like one of those air fresheners named “White Linen” – you know, the ones that cover a smell but really are a smell in themselves?. Labeled as a “natural aphrodisiac”, this smell really only offended me during its use. It maybe has a hint of lavender in it? But that scent is really blinded by the rest of the smell. In terms of using it for foreplay or just for a nice massage, it did not deliever. It’s too bad really, because I was hoping this product was an alternative to other massage oils out there because it boasts on being natural. Unfortunately though, the “naturalness” of it was its downfall.

The consistency of it is nice, it’s got a good oil base that will let up if you rub it in enough (meaning that after 10 minutes I’m not still slipping around). But that’s kind of all it has going for it. I wouldn’t buy this product again, and it will stay in my drawer until I muster the effort to either toss it out or give it to an unsuspecting friend. Probably the former.

Hello world!

Hello world indeed!

Well I found myself frustrated by some of the other blogging site layouts and I wanted to try my luck on here. So far, so good.

Introduction: Yes, my name really is Scarlett. I’m a twenty-something lady who bides her time reading, learning, snuggling, eating, visiting, and even sexing. Occasionally even painting! Anyhow, I’ve been interested in the sex blogger idea sice my late teens and now than I am a distinguished adult *ahem*, I feel I have had the experiences and the experiments to join the field.

Currently in a long-ish term relationship, my sex life centres more around the benefits of lubes and sex toys that are used on me. My boyfriend isn’t one for having sexy toys reciprocated on him, so these posts are going to be fairly one-sided, and I’m not complaininnnggg!

I’ve always been an open person, both in the “real” world and in my sex life, so yes I have really used these items and products, and yes I will give you moderately detailed but incredibly informative reviews on them. Enjoy!
