First of all, please let me apologise for the lack of updates for the past week or so – not only have I been working, but I’ve struck down with the flu AGAIN – all of this combined with a serious lack of sleep has just left me with absolutely ZERO energy or enthusiasm for anything – I think I’m now over the worst of it, so I’m really hoping things will be back to normal ASAP – I just ask you to please be patient and bare with me!
We’re looking at 2 products today, both provided to me by the kind folk over at Belle De Soir, who sent me a selection of Sliquid samples to review. We’ve already given a run down of the Stroke Rub Oil and today we are taking a look at the RIDE BODYWORX Silicone Lubricant and the ROCK Delay Spray. We’ll take a look at the Lubricant first, so let’s get straight to it.
SLIQUID RIDE BODYWORX SILICONE PERSONAL LUBRICANT
Silicone lube is generally the type of lube I use when indulging in anal play – the main reason being, it’s not absorbed as quickly as water-based lubes, meaning a session can last longer before I feel any need to re-apply. My husband also prefers to use it as a masturbation lube, for similar reasons.
The RIDE BODYWORX silicone lube is packaged very simply, but still looks surprisingly elegant. it’s a sleek black bottle with a shiny matte black label. The shiny silver text and the red dragon logo really stand out. It features one of this little flip caps (when you de-press one side and the other side pops up) which is really good at helping prevent spillages should things get a bit carried away and you knock the bottle over on your best duvet cover.
Like everything else in the SLIQUID range, it’s Glycerine and Paraben free and has been designed to be hypoallergenic and non-toxic. It’s suitable for use with Latex, Rubber and Plastic (and glass and metal).
The Silicone lube has a runny consistency – it’s almost the same consistency as the Stroke Oil which is quite ‘watery’ however the lube is slightly more viscous – this means that getting the lube where you want to be can be a bit… well, not tricky – but it’s much easier to apply the lube into your hand first, before then carefully applying it to whatever you want – applying the lube directly to, a dildo, for example, will see the lube just run off and dribble in any and every direction. This isn’t a massive problem, and it’s something I’ve encountered with other silicone lubes before – but if you are particular about keeping the bedsheets lube-free, then you might want to take a little extra care.
The lube glides effortlessly over the skin, meaning that not only can you use this as an intimate lube, you can also use it for all over body massage – and as it’s silicone based, things can get extra slippery.
The lube is incredibly slick and slippery – it made insertion of toys / fingers / wangs extremely comfortable, and even after some heavy thrusting, things still stayed nice and slick. I’ve yet to find a lube that doesn’t need re-application – but when things did start to feel a little dry, just one or two little additional drops ensured things got moving smoothly again.
It’s odour-free, and has little to no taste and can even be used in the bath or shower (however, do exercise extreme caution should you choose to play in the bath or shower – I nearly learned the hard way on holiday with silicone lube in a hot tub – nearly cracked my head open, slipping on damn lube…).
After use, it doesn’t leave you feeling to greasy, and actually found my skin to feel softer and smoother – all the signs of a top class lube.
SLIQUID RIDE BODYWORX ROCK DELAY SPRAY
Whenever I make plans to meet with friends, I always like to arrive early. In the bedroom, however, I like to take my time and savour the moment – thankfully, ‘arriving too early’ is never something I have an issue with. But I do guess that sometimes, I wish I could last a little bit longer than I normally do – even when I’m just having a quick ‘session’ – and the ROCK Delay Spray promised it would help.
It’s presented in the same way as the silicone lube, albeit in a much smaller spray bottle. The main ingredient in the delay spray is Benzocaine – a topical numbing agent found in things like cough drops / throat lozenges and is designed to help reduce sensitivity. To use, when erect, apply 3-4 sprays to both the head and shaft of the penis 5 minutes before heavy sexual activity (i.e. during foreplay).
After getting myself all ‘aroused’ and ready to play, I applied a good squirt to the tip of my penis, and 2 more liberal squirts on the shaft. I waited 5 minutes and got down to some play. Immediately, I noticed a difference, and at first, it really weirded me out. I could feel what I was doing, but at the same time, I couldn’t feel what I was doing. It hadn’t completely numbed all sensation, but it had certainly de-sensitised me enough, and I was confident that this session would see me last longer.
Well… the good news is, I did last longer. Too long. It got to the point where I got bored – because it worked TOO well for me. The longer I went on, the more I actually started to just completely lose sensation, and after half an hour, I just wilted away. I don’t know exactly what the issue was – but I’m guessing there was just some sort of switch off in my brain somewhere. I was enjoying some high quality gay porn and using one of my favourite masturbators, yet because I couldn’t feel anything down below, it was like someone just flicked a switch, and before I knew it, I was sat there with just a limp dick in my hand (well, at least I think it was still in my hand).
The Silicone lubricant was fabulous. It’s got a good consistency and is really slippery. It’s odourless, tasteless and completely safe for anyone and everyone to use – and when it comes to playing anally, then this is the type of lube I will go for – it’s long tasting, and works REALLY well with glass and metal toys. It’s also really versatile and is just as much fun when used as a massage oil, as it is an intimate lube.
The Delay spray is a massive miss for me BUT – I don’t think it’s a bad product. It does what it says it’s going to do, and it works quickly and effectively – so if you do have an issue lasting in the bedroom, then this could be very useful to you – for me though, as it’s not really an issue, it just made things weird for me. It smells pleasant, doesn’t contain anything nasty and didn’t cause any irritation or unpleasant feelings – it’s just not a product I feel I need.
