7 out of 10
Would recommend if you like coconut oil as lube, or if you prefer lube from a jar.
Pairs well with a Maitai. It’s got some coconut happening, and the syrup-y feel almost seems like an after-taste.
I was sent this lube courtesy of Peepshow Toys!
When I was approached, they asked if I was interested in reviewing a lube they have listed until the “Anal Lubes” section. Since I have such an affinity for sticking things up my butt, I immediately responded “Yes, please!” and it was sent.
I spent about a month testing this lube in various orifices with various penetrative utensils. I used my boyfriend’s dick, all of my toys at one point or another. Though it says that it’s not safe for condoms, I did use a condom for anal once (I’m fluid-bonded to my boyfriend), and we had no incidents. That said, PLEASE DON’T USE THIS WITH A CONDOM. I’m only liable for MY not listening to instructions. I am not liable if you do this.
These came in simple jars with no sealing, which I love because the environment is important! That orange label seems to be designed to be removed, because I did and underneath, it had a really elegant, and less-eye-catching black jar underneath.
I immediately opened the jar to take a whiff when it arrived. I have to be honest, that dampened my enthusiasm a little bit. It smells an awful lot like plastic some how (though the company says it should be honey and cocoa butter), and the texture definitely looks like vegan butter. After looking at the ingredients, there are some similarities between this an vegan butter (yesssss #foodplay).
But, I wanted to give it due discourse, so I lubed up a toy and I got to work the first day. It smears on easy enough, but I do have to be honest: I don’t think jar lubricants are for me. I have a hard time getting the product out without having oily hands (which I hate). Well, let me back track. I can’t get any product without having oily hands unless I dip the TOY into the jar. This is fine if I have just one toy or if I start with it lubed. I have a tendency to make my own lubricant pretty well, so if I try a toy and THEN decide I need lube, I either have to get oily hands or contaminate the jar. THE. WORST.
But what does it feel like, you ask? Well, it actually feels real good. It goes on solid, and spreads around…like butter? This was a great way for me to work out my food fetish, which is definitely a thing for me, and definitely NOT a thing for my boyfriend (sadness). As an actual lubricant, it’s great. It slides on nice, and the toys feel real good going in. I also feel like I use less of it than my other lubes because a little goes such a long way. I saved two sample jars for me (for those contamination moments), and I still have both about half full.
This is a really great natural lube, with minimum allergens in it. Though I have no allergies, I think it’s important to speak on what The Butters has done. They have made an all-natural, allergen-free lube (and other products) that works really well, and is very efficient. This is really important to have on the market because Sliquid can’t be the ONLY natural lubricant out there.
However, I have one problem with this lube, aside from the jar form. I don’t love the flavor. I used this for a blow job and at first, it tasted a little sweet, but then I noticed that it has a lingering taste to it. It’s almost chemical to me, but it may be just the taste of oil that I don’t like. It should be said that the oils used here are also ingredients I find in vegan butter, which also has a weird taste to me. Other folks do not mind these tastes in vegan butter, which leads me to suspect I have something in my palate that makes me not like the taste of this lube. You might think it’s wonderful (or at least more neutral).
Overall, this lube is really great, and I would recommend it highly to anyone with allergies, or who likes vegan butter (whyyyyyy). It remains a firm 7 for me, though.
