For years, I’ve preferred to keep the amount of nasty chemicals in my body products to a minimum. I haven’t always succeeded, but I try. However, lubricants are one item I’m pretty picky about. Since the genitals are made up of fairly sensitive skin and mucous membranes, I always strive to eliminate parabens, phthalates, preservatives, and glycerin from my arsenal of sex toys and lubricants. What have I learned in my quest for the perfect lube? Finding a good, clean water-based lubricant can be tough. Sure, silicone-based lubricants are easy. All they requires is dimethicone, dimethiconol, and/or cyclopentasiloxane. But water-based…When I heard about Coconu lubricants, I was anxious to give it a shot. Their oil-based lubricant is a USDA certified organic lubricant. Water-based lubricants aren’t certified by the USDA because they’re not considered food-safe or made from food-quality ingredients. I’m unable to use oil-based lubricant at the moment so I jumped at the chance to review their water-based lubricant, hoping the water-based would share the same quality of ingredients boasted about in their oil-based. I’ve been searching for my holy grail water-based lubricant, but right now my go-to’s have been Sliquid Sassy and Pjur Nude.
The folks over at Tantus have got to be mind-readers because if there is one Tantus dildo I had been lusting over, it was the Tsunami. When I was sent my first item to review and it turned out to be the Tsunami, I was ecstatic. I’m a huge fan of texture and the Tsunami looked perfect. Those purple ridges and waves just called to me. The length looked perfect. It even had a G-spot curve. Most of my dildos are straight thrusting dildos so I was searching for a good G-spot dildo. This was meant to be. After all, how could you possibly go wrong with Tantus silicone anyways?
The Jimmyjane Hello Touch has been praised as a revolutionary, game changing sex toy that “may be the best...ever”. According to Shape’s review, the Hello Touch will give your man “superpowers” instead of intimidating him like other toys. It’s been hailed as an “intuitive” vibrator, serving to enhance the use of fingers during masturbation, foreplay, and sex. From the mainstream praise this toy was receiving, it was clear to me that it was being marketed to a totally different audience than your average, run-of-the-mill sex toy reviewer. You wouldn’t find the We-Vibe Tango/Salsa or the Pure Wand receiving this much popular praise, despite the high status they hold among reviewers.
