Review: Astroglide Gel

Disclaimer: This review contains slightly more TMI than usual with regards to my personal time habits and the like. If frank expressions of this nature in decent detail make you uncomfortable, don’t read on. Otherwise, enjoy!

When it comes to masturbation, one of the biggest differences in what can make or break a self-love session comes down to one thing: lubrication. Sure, you could masturbate without it if need be, but it’s not the most comfortable or pleasurable. Speaking from personal experience, a nice lube is all you really need to give yourself some insane, mind shattering pleasure. As I mentioned in my Pepee Lotion review, not only is lubrication a nice addition to your masturbation (try saying that five times fast!), it can actually be essential in ensuring comfortable penetration, especially with backdoor play.

Speaking of Pepee Lotion, to this day I am still quite fond of that particular lube, and I’ve been craving to find lube of a similar thickness closer to home. Most of the American lubes I’ve used or seen online are much too thin for my needs, rendering me unsatisfied and longing for the familiar clear bottle and orange cap I love so dearly. When I was browsing Astroglide’s website out of curiosity one night and saw they had a gel formula, my interest was almost immediately piqued. “Could it be,” I thought when glancing at the page, “a lube that’s similar to Pepee Lotion? In America?!” I was beyond excited when I saw that it was a thicker formula. Admittedly, prior to this review, I didn’t really have any experience with thicker American water based lubes. I only had experience with a brand called Shibari which I did not care for very much at all. Lo and behold, it turned out Astroglide’s site actually has a section where you can get a lube sample! (For the curious, you can do that right here.) Without a moment of hesitation, I requested a sample for the Astroglide Gel formula, waited a week or so, aaand… it came! I was eager to give it a try but ended up putting it off for some time until just a couple hours ago. How does this thick, gel formula live up to the thick wonder of Pepee Lotion? Is it even comparable? Find out below the cut!

Review: Tenga SVR (Pearl White Version)

This lovely Tenga SVR was something I won in the Tenga Valentine’s Giveaway! 

It’s been a year and… a couple months since I last wrote any reviews for this blog. I’m so sorry for the delay! Luckily, I have just the product to bring this blog back from the dead. It’s no surprise I have some sex toys; hell, my most recent post was a review for Anal Fits’ Pink! But that said… pretty much every toy I own is anally-focused. I didn’t really have any vibrators or clitorally-focused toys… until now!

Last month, I decided to be a bit brave and enter the Tenga Valentine’s Giveaway for fun. At worst, I wouldn’t win anything, but that’s fine. But at best… I had my eye on the sleek, discreet design of the Tenga SVR and I knew deep down that I needed it. If I wasn’t gonna win it, I considered very heavily buying it. So, determination in my heart, I chose the Tenga SVR and a Tenga shirt as my prizes of choice. “There’s no way I’ll win,” I thought to myself. However one night, as I was tossing and turning in bed trying to get to sleep, I got an email notification. Low and behold, I actually won the giveaway! I was so excited. I also felt anticipation. Given I had never used a vibrator before, I didn’t really know what to expect. Let me just say: my expectations were met, and even surpassed some as well. More below the cut as always!  Continue reading “Review: Tenga SVR (Pearl White Version)”
