In Part1 of Slippery Surfaces Ahead, I went into some details about Water Based, Silicone, and Hybrid Personal Lubricants. Here, I will get down to the nitty gritty on Flavors, Warming, Anal, and Masturbation formulas.
Yeah, just when you think you have it all figured out; manufacturers come up with even more ways to keep things slick and exciting in the bedroom. So, here is a little intro to what I call, speciality lubes.
Maybe it's just the "foodie" in me, but I am super picky about flavored lubes! For the past 9 years, I have been happily selling JO H2o Flavored, Water Based Lubricants. They come in a good selection of flavors, are silky, and wash (or should I say, lick) away easily. A little goes a long way, and reactivates with your own moisture. Just a few drops of a good flavored lube can change your entire oral sex experience.
Max Head is a very popular flavored gel, designed to enhance any Bl*w Job. With just a touch of benzocaine to tone down the gag reflex, and help your man last just a little longer. Available in yummy flavors like Sugar Daddy, Berry, and Mint.
ALSO look for Aqua Wicked Flavors. These unique flavors are Paraben Free, Glycerine Free and Hypoallergenic. My personal fave? Salted Caramel...SO GOOD.
Hearing so many stories about warming lubricants gone awry, I have been a little apprehensive about selling anything designed to HEAT your genitals! Then, along came hot pink, designed for women.
Most warming lubricants use ingredients like capsacian, (pepper), or cinnamon, or menthol to heat sensitive tissues. Hot pink is water based, and contains a combination of ingredients that gently warm, when they make contact with your own moisture. The more liberally you apply hot pink, the more you will feel the heat.
This exothermic formula can be used in a variety of ways. Apply to any erogenous zone for a warm and sensual massage; simply activate hot pink with a small amount of water or saliva.
You can use hot pink safely with all toy materials, including the elastomers commonly used in male masturbation sleeves. Run some warm water through the sleeve to dampen and "pre-heat", then use hot pink lube for a truly warming experience.
Use your imagination, and some moisture, to come up with your own uses for this clever product.
Anal lubricants are an interesting product category at Diva. They are one of those items that people are a little apprehensive about requesting, even though a good lubricant is essential for safe and pleasurable anal play.
Pjur BACK DOOR is the newest addition to Diva's anal lube offerings. Enhanced with Jojoba and Amarys Bark extracts, pjur BACK DOOR Silicone Anal Glide was created to relax and soothe the sphincter muscles, while providing plenty of silky lubrication.
Pjur BACK DOOR Comfort Water Anal Glide, uses the moisturizing power of hyaluronan, to cushion and protect skin and tissues. We are carrying BOTH the silicone, and the water based varieties, so you can pick your pleasure.
Typically, lubricants designed for use anally are thicker than traditional lubes. That is the case with our current top selling, water based gel lubricant, Maximus. Surprisingly smooth and sensual, Maximus doesn't get sticky. The thicker texture helps to cushion delicate rectal tissues, while propelyne glycols bind with your bodies moisture to stay slippery longer.
Maximus is also great for anyone that simply likes a thicker, longer lasting lubricant, AND the texture helps Maximus coat toys (like plugs and beads) better than liquid lubes.
AND now a few words on numbing lubricants, creams, sprays, and gels. Anyone that has attended a typical sex toy party, (aka, a F*ckerware Party, as I like to call it) has probably seen a tube of product designed to numb the bum. These novelties are also found in many shops and websites that sell sexual enhancements and toys.
I CANNOT EMPHASIZE ENOUGH how potentially harmful these numbing formulas can be during anal sex. Our bodies pain mechanisms are designed to send signals to our brains, warning us that something is a possible problem...in this case for our health.
By numbing the sphincter and/or rectum, you have blocked the information signal that you need to make informed decisions concerning our own body. Micro-tears and abrasions in the rectal area are common enough, and may lead to soreness and/or infections. IF you are feeling pain, something is not right.
To avoid problems altogether, keep communication between yourself and your partner flowing, take your time and relax, and use plenty of body safe lubrication.
