Maseo from the Lush collection by Oro Vidri is a high quality glass dildo that creates a truly luxurious pleasure experience!  This hand crafted piece of functional art is ergonomically shaped to stimulate some of the most sensitive areas of the body.  Maseo was made with the male anatomy in mind, the slim design and great curve have the ability to target the P-spot, taking your pleasure to a whole new level!  The length is very manageable and shouldn’t be too intimidating for a new user or for a partner to use along with you, and stays out of the way during oral play and other sexual activities.  The loop at the base makes the toy anal safe and also helps with moving the dildo during use.

Being compact is actually a major plus since it keeps the focus on the areas that matter most.  Don’t have a prostate?  The smooth surface paired with the soft curve also do wonders for the female anatomy!  While it won’t provide you will a full feeling, it certainly will help you locate (if you haven’t already) and pleasure the G-spot.

All Oro Vidri toys can be used for temperature play, but it’s important to follow directions so that you don’t cause any damage to your beautiful dildo.  Included with your toy is a paper that gives you the dos and don’ts of heating and cooling your toy.  This information is also available on their website.

While Oro Vidri sex toys can be heated and cooled, depending on your preference for sensual play, always do so in a safe manner by following the directions below.

 For a warmed toy:

1. Place a plastic bowl in your sink large enough to submerge your toy in temped water but small enough to allow for water to overflow into the sink and down the drain.

2. Fill the bowl with temped water still running and place the toy in it.

3. Once the bowl is filled, turn back the amount of cold water until your desired temperature is achieved and allow the water in the bowl to overflow down the drain.

4. Once the bowl is filled, and the toy is covered by water of the desired temperature, turn the faucet off and allow your sensual sculpture to sit for two minutes.

5. Dry your toy with a lint free towel.

Your artisan sex toy should now be sufficiently warm and ready for a fluid introduction into duty.

For a chilled toy:
1. Insert your room temperature toy into a bowl of cold water and allow it to sit for a few minutes.

2. Dry with a lint free towel and expect an invigorating experience.​

  • Never put your Oro Vidri artisan sex toy in the freezer. Your glass toy can get so cold you can give yourself frost bite or even worse… stick!
  • Your Oro Vidri glass toy should ever be boiled or heat disinfected. Do not attempt this as it could cause serious injuries and or weaken your artisan sex toy.
  • Never introduce a cold toy into a hot environment or vice versa. Thermal shock and breakage is a real concern for any solid glass toy and should never be done.
  • Never place your glass toy in the dishwasher. Doing so can cause damage to your artisan sex toy and does not ensure its cleanliness.


Maseo is truly an incredibly beautiful piece of art!  This dildo is made from glass that is 100% hypoallergenic, but is unlike any glass toy I’ve used in the past.  I’ve never felt something so incredibly high quality and their skill is easily seen through their work.  The glass is hand made from refined glass that is comprised of 25-50% recycled glass.  The glass is melted down at 2200 degrees Fahrenheit before it’s gathered up by the artisan and rolled though gold or silver and then shaped to perfection.”  according to the company.


There is a good weight to the piece, feeling solid in your hand while remaining light during use.  The surface is incredibly smooth to the touch, having no texture at all.  The lack of texture keeps your focus on the pressure being applied and prevents stimulation from being too overwhelming for some users.


Untitled-10The overall look of Maseo is what made me gravitate toward it.  It’s challenging for me to call it a dildo or toy throughout this review because it just doesn’t seem like one.  The inside of the toy is beautifully coated in eye catching gold flakes.  They almost seem patterned, but unique at the same time.  The center of the piece is clear and almost has a hollow look to it thanks to the way the flakes lay.  The beautiful gold stands out that much more because it’s fully encased in layer of glass.  It’s difficult to explain, but incredibly beautiful to look at.

Untitled-9The shape of this dildo is really interesting, and is much different than most anal friendly toys.  Rather than having a flared base that’s flat on the bottom, it has a really interesting curve that curls up around the base of the toy, creating a little loop.  The beautifully rounded tip, gentle curves, and glamorous gold flakes make this toy a truly sexy work of art.

Since these are all hand crafted, they are completely unique, no two are exactly alike.  For that reason, Oro Vidri considers these to be limited edition or one of a kind.  Your Maseo may look slightly different than the one I received, and mine doesn’t look exactly like the website image either.  It sort of adds an element of surprise since they’re all unique and beautiful in their own way.  While there are some differences in size and appearance, they all function just as well.

Untitled-3(the coloring is slightly different because of a change in natural lighting)

What surprised me when this toy arrived was the size.  The website has the size of the item, but having it in your hands is a totally different experience.  Though listed as 6″ long, mine is actually 5 1/4″ in total length; 3 1/2″ of that being insertable.  Though it differs from the website, it works just as well and is every bit as beautiful.  The end of the toy starts off very reasonable at 3/4″ in diameter an increases to 1 1/8″; the widest point.  It thins slightly right before the curved area, decreasing to 7/8″.  The size is wonderful for anal beginners or those looking to specifically target the prostate or G-spot since the width is so manageable.  Size kings and queens may feel it’s a little small, but for targeted stimulation it’s truly amazing.



Included with your dildo is a sheet that gives you the run down on how to properly care for your toy.  The same instruction can be found on their website:

  • Totally hypoallergenic, Oro Vidri artisan sex toys are non-porous and easily cleanable with a mild soap or 10% bleach and water solution.
  • Always clean your toy with soap and water or a sex toy cleaning solution before use and rinse well with clean water prior to drying.
  • Avoid any abrasive cleaners, scratches can harbor bacteria and can lead to infection.
  • Always use a clean lint free towel to dry your toy after washing.
  • Always inspect your toy for defects, chips, cracks, scratches and foreign material on the surface of the glass prior to use.
  • If dropped, inspect your toy for damage and if any exists, DO NOT USE.
  • Never put your Oro Vidri artisan sex toy in the freezer. Your glass toy can get so cold you can give yourself frost bite or even worse… stick!
  • Your Oro Vidri glass toy should ever be boiled or heat disinfected. Do not attempt this as it could cause serious injuries and or weaken your artisan sex toy.
  • Never introduce a cold toy into a hot environment or vice versa. Thermal shock and breakage is a real concern for any solid glass toy and should never be done.
  • Never place your glass toy in the dishwasher. Doing so can cause damage to your artisan sex toy and does not ensure its cleanliness.

It’s a little different than some glass toys, but not terribly so.  Always make sure you use the 10% bleach solution if you share with someone else or switch orifices; especially using it anally and then vaginally.  You don’t want to introduce bacterial that could potentially lead to an infection.

Being made from glass, Maseo is compatible will all lubricant types, so feel free to use whatever works best for you.  Since the surface is so smooth a little goes a long way and you’re ready for action.  Just keep in mind that oil-based lubricants aren’t great for vaginal use, stick with a good water-based or silicone.

Untitled-8Storing the toy is quite easy because it comes in a leather wrap that protects your toy.  It’s not padded in any way, but it does protect against surface damage.  If you decide to use something else for storage, using a small padded pouch should work well.  Each leather wrap is made to fit your toy perfectly and is snug around your toy.  It has a gold plated closure that easily fits through a small slit in the pouch, preventing it from accidentally opening up.  The only thing you have to be careful with is making sure the toy doesn’t slip through the sides since there’s nothing there to prevent it from coming out.



Untitled-5Along with carefully creating and inspecting your toy before sending it out, they also do a great job of making sure your dildo arrives in perfect condition!  It arrives in a plain brown box that doesn’t contain any information that would make someone think you were receiving an adult product.  It is appropriately stamped as a fragile item, so it should have been handled with extra care prior to arriving.

Inside, the package contains lots of bubble wrap and the toy itself is inside the leather case and has more bubble wrap surrounding it.  A beautiful paper surrounds the wrap, adding a small touch that makes it look even more elegant!  The attention to detail goes full circle with Oro Vidri!

Also included in your box will be the temperature and cleaning papers mentioned above, and a little pamphlet that tells you about the company.  It provides great information and includes their website and facebook information.


Handling my Maseo for the first time, I was truly impressed.  Often times companies call their products luxury, but I’ve never felt anything like the quality you can expect from Oro Vidri.  I’ve used many glass dildos over the past few years, but they all feel cheap compared to this.

In use, this dildo is amazing!  Being the primary toy user in the house, and female, I enjoy using this toy to stimulate my G-spot.  I’m not someone that’s super sensitive inside and I usually prefer larger toys (which you call tell from the other reviews I’ve written) so I was quite surprised with how well the Maseo worked for me.  The thin design really kept my focus on the G-spot and it was easy to get lost in that feeling.  The rounded tip prevented it from poking at me, while providing pin-point stimulation.

Prostate stimulation was really my goal when I chose the Maseo.  The subtle curve and thin designed looked perfect for helping me stimulate my husband’s P-spot.  It had all the great features I look for in a prostate massager and I knew it would be really stimulating for him.  I’ve been selfish so far and we haven’t used it that way, but I love having a toy that can be used on both of us.  It really makes the price point that much more reasonable when you consider the pleasure we’ll both receive from it.

If you can’t tell from my review, this is a dildo I would highly recommend adding to your collection!  It’s a gender neutral toy that’s amazingly high quality and simply beautiful to look at!

A little more about Oro Vidri

This company is an artisan-based and owned company, working hard at proving people with elegant pieces of functional art.  They currently have two lines of sensual sculptures; Crystal and Lush.  The Crystal line is all glass with the focus being on the overall look of the pieces, being reminiscent of cut crystal.  The glass is totally transparent but is covered in amazing textures that are simply gorgeous!  The Lush line is where the Maseo is from and features both smooth and textured glass that has 22 karat gold or pure silver encased in it.  Both lines are stunning in their own ways and feature products that should appeal to just about anyone.

If that’s not enough, this winter they will be featuring a third line of these luxury toys; Venetian Dreams.  This line will “incorporate the ornate color options of Venetian glass from the renaissance as well as encased precious metals like gold, silver, and platinum.  Each will be one of a kind for a limited edition of five or under” according to Oro Vidri.  So keep checking back as the weather gets colder to see these amazing creations!

On top of having these beautiful toys to choose from, they also work hard at creating products as unique as you and your sexual needs; offering custom pieces that make unique gifts (even if it’s just for yourself!).  Be sure to fill out their contact form to see if your fantasy toy can come to life.

As with any company that creates hand crafted products, there is a short wait time.  It’s normal to expect your toy to take 7-10 days to produce, and maybe longer depending on what you’ve discussed as far as your custom piece.

All Tied Up In You

The moment I laid eyes on you
I was bound to you.
You drew me in with those 
warm brown eyes 
and intense glances 
that left me shaken inside.
I was so unsure of myself, 
yet so secure, trapped 
in your gaze making me
burn for more.
Tongues tangled together,
forever thirsting;
Words spilling freely,
emotions bursting.
Passion and trust,
love and lust.
I was yours for the taking,
and so you took without looking back.
I’m all tied up in you;
lovers bound, 
freedom found,
in your hands
I’m safe and sound.

1. What sex act have you seen in porn videos/films and have never done but want to do? (Describe act or post a link).

I’m going to be the odd one here when I say we don’t really watch porn.  There are still some positions I’d like to try with my husband, but they’ve come from my own fantasies and aren’t based on something I’ve already seen.

2. A lot of porn is remakes of old ideas. It’s difficult to be creative in porn because it’s all basically about the same thing. Everyone is starved for ideas, and if some new idea is successful, it’s immediately swamped by knock-offs. Do you have an idea for something even a little bit new in porn?

A good story line?  I’m so lame when it comes to porn!  I don’t just want to watch people fucking, I want to truly believe that there’s an actual connection between them and it sounds like most of porn has horrible acting apart from the actual sex.

3. Whilst ideally we’d all like to say our partner provides us with the best orgasms, what’s really making you see stars?
a) masturbation
b) sex toys
c) my partner(s)

Without hesitation the answer is C.  I provide myself with some awesome orgasms through masturbation (usually using toys), but nothing gives me a stronger orgasm than oral sex.

4. Have you ever ‘cheated’ on your partner, and did they know/find out? Would you want someone to tell you if your partner was ‘cheating’? Define what you consider ‘cheating’.

I think cheating can be defined a number of ways.  I would feel that my husband was cheating on me if he did something with someone and felt the need to hide it from me.  If you’re hiding something you know it’s wrong.  I’ve never cheated on anyone before as I don’t see the need to and I would absolutely want someone to tell me if my husband was.

Bonus: Give us 2-3 erotic paragraphs incorporating the following words in your story(ette): Magnificent, Nero, Licks, Hard, Nipples. (And no, you can’t use them all in one sentence).

It never takes long for you to turn me on.  Just the thought of you sends electricity to my nipples and warms my sweet spot.  The magnificent way you always know just how to please me; your gentle licks, teasing nibbles…these thoughts always ruin my concentration.  It’s so hard to focus on anything apart from you, Nero; my king, my everything…so I think tonight my dreams will be only of you.

Icicles No.14

- Made from glass
- Long neck
- Easy to clean
- Can be used for temperature play
- Increases in size quickly




Icicles No.14 from Pipedream is a hand blown glass butt plug.  This simple but elegant plug can be used in a few different ways and for a few different reasons.  Some people love the full and stretched feeling a plug can provide, and others use them as a tool to help prepare for anal sex or another types of anal play.  Whether you’re playing or prepping, Icicles No.14 is a great toy to have.

The base of the toy is small enough that it won’t get in the way during intercourse, whether you’re on the giving or receiving end, and stays in place well thanks to the size difference between the bulge and neck of the toy.  The slim neck also makes long term wear really comfortable and easier to manage.  If you’re playing with a partner, they won’t be able to thrust the toy, but they’ll be able to move the base side to side which could provide a great sensation to the prostate.

This plug is great for more than just anal play, it can also be used inside the vagina.  The curve to the toy and bulbous head are great for stimulating the G-spot.  Always keep in mind that the toy will need to be sterilized before switching orifices and your own experience will vary depending on your anatomy.  Not everyone will experience great G-spot or P-spot pleasure during use, so keep that in mind.

Being glass, this toy is also great for temperature play.  You can easily heat the toy up by placing it in a bowl or sink of warm water or cool it off by putting it in the refrigerator for a few hours or placing it in some ice water.  The package states that you can put it in the microwave to heat it up or in the freezer to cool it off, but neither of those options are ideal.  It wouldn’t be difficult for the toy to heat unevenly and burn your delicate skin, or have your moist skin stick to the glass directly from the freezer.


Icicles No.14 is made from Pyrex glass which is a material you may already have in your kitchen in the form of bakeware.  This glass is very strong and is much more resistant to breaking than some other glass types.  Pyrex is a hypoallergenic, non-porous, and body safe material that’s truly a great option in a sex toy because of how safe it is.

There’s no give to this plug, no moving parts, and no texture.  The smooth surface is great since less lubricant is required and it slides into your body with ease.


Untitled-3The shape of Icicles No.14 isn’t a new design in the slightest, but sometimes going with what already works is best.  The tip of the toy comes to a rounded point and increases in girth; creating a large bulb.  Below the bulb is the neck of the toy (where your anus will rest) and the base is just below that.  Many plugs feature a flat base, but this one is shaped like a ring.  It makes the plug really easy to manipulate while it’s in place and is super easy to remove.

The bulge has a little curve to it which should help connect with the areas that matter most.  The size truly prevents this toy from being beginner friendly.  It’s an intermediate to advanced size and may require some working up to.  The shape of the bulb doesn’t take long to get to the thickest area and it’s a good idea to use a smaller plug before inserting this one to avoid discomfort.

The total length of the toy is 5 1/2″ long, and can be inserted up to 3 1/2″.  The length isn’t an issue as far as your experience level, it’s the girth of the bulb.  The thickest area of the bulb is 5 3/4″ in circumference; my fingers don’t even touch when I put my hand around it!  It can be a challenge to insert this area, but once you’re over that hump, the neck is much more reasonable coming in at 2 3/4″.  The neck is also a nice length.  The 1″ gives you plenty of room to feel comfortable without the base sticking out too far from your bottom.



Cleaning the toy is a total breeze!  You can wash it with warm water and antibacterial soap or sex toy cleaner, but can sterilize it a few different ways.  The easiest (in my opinion) is to clean it using a 10% bleach solution, but you can also put it on the top rack of your dishwasher, or boil it.  While I know it’s safe, boiling the glass makes me uncomfortable so I normally use another method.

Have a favorite lube?  It’s compatible with this toy!  No matter what lubricant you reach for, there’s no chance of it damaging the toy in any way.  Just make sure you avoid using an oil-based if you’re playing vaginally.

The packaging for this toy doubles as storage and is the only option available.  It doesn’t come with a pouch or anything like that.  The box does take up more space than necessary for the toy and investing in a small padded pouch would be a good idea.


Untitled-4Though not great for long term storage, the packaging for the Icicle No.14 is very attractive looking.  They really care about presentation when it comes to these toys.  The front of the package shows an image of the toy and boldly has the word ‘Icicles’ on the top.  The sides both have the same image on them, and the back has some information on it about the toy.  There’s a small white ribbon in the center of the front which opens the front flap.  It stays closed because of a magnet, but when you open it you see the toy through a plastic window.  Inside the flap also includes the same information that’s on the back of the packaging.

The box is opened from the top and the toy is carefully placed inside a foam tray.  The tray is cut perfectly to hold the toy in place and prevent it from moving around inside the box.


I guess when I looked at the measurements of this toy I wasn’t realizing just how large it is.  I’m not a beginner when it comes to anal play, but my booty is a little shy in general and has never been exposed to something this large before.  Before using it, I made sure I was really relaxed and prepared for it.  The toy and I were both well lubricated and I went to insert it.  I hardly pressed on it and I could feel discomfort.  I know better than to push myself, so I got into a different position and tried again and had the same results.  I’m not one that does a whole lot of warm up for things, but knew it would be smart for me to in this case.  So, I put in a smaller plug and left that in for about 20 minutes before trying again.  It was much better this time, though the thickest part of the toy still felt a little unpleasant.  Once it was in place I was really impressed by how comfortable it was.  I didn’t feel like it was going to fall out (even with it being fairly heavy) and I didn’t feel like I was stretched in an uncomfortable way.

I was able to wear it for quite a while before deciding to remove it.  I was up and moving around and took some time to sit down while it was in place and it felt really nice.  When it was time to remove it I did feel the same slight discomfort at the thickest point, but it came out pretty easily.

Considering this size is something I’m not used to, I’m really impressed with the experiences I’ve had with it.  It would have been nice if the increase in size was a little more gradual because I think insertion would be more comfortable that way, but it wasn’t horrible once I had been properly warmed up and ready for it.  Icicles No.14 is great quality, is attractive looking, and provides great sensations.

Review: Beau from Blush Novelties

 -Reviews-  4 Responses »
Aug 262013


- Made from silicone
- Multi-speed
- Waterproof
- Rumbly
- Fun colors
- No patterns
- Doesn’t come with storage
- Might not be powerful enough for some





Beau from Blush Novelties is a silicone vibrator that has a phallic shape.  While the shape does resemble a penis, it’s not realistic and doesn’t come in fleshy colors.  Great for vaginal use, on your own or with a partner, Beau has a great curved tip that helps target and pleasure the G-spot while also having a second vibrating spot that’s designed to connect with external pleasure zones.  It’s not a dual stimulating vibrator like you’d normally see, but it has twin vibrating points; a motor in the tip of the toy, and toward the base.

Apart from vaginal use, you can run it along various pleasure zones including the clitoris, nipples, perineum, and other sensitive areas.  Without a flared base on the bottom, this toy really isn’t safe for anal play.  It could get sucked inside your body and potentially lead to a trip to the emergency room to get it removed.  Teasing is fine as long as you keep it external.

When properly closed, the vibe is also totally waterproof.  Along the battery compartment is an o-ring that prevents water from leaking into your toy, making it possible to enjoy in the shower, tub, pool, etc. and makes it super easy to clean.


Made from silicone and ABS plastic, Beau is body-safe, non-porous, latex free and phthalates free.  The insertable portion of the toy is silicone and is extremely silky smooth to the touch.  It has a matte finish to it which doesn’t create any drag and hardly picks up any lint.  The battery cap is also smooth and has a metallic finish to it.

The silicone is a covering for the internal parts, so there are some areas that are more firm than others because of where the motors are located.  The tip and base are both very firm, but the center of the toy feels almost hollow inside.  There’s a lot of give to the middle of the shaft and it’s very easy to bend.


Though most of the toy is completely smooth, there are a couple small areas that have texture to them, and small elements that compliment the overall look of the toy.  Someone who doesn’t care for texture will appreciate this one since it’s quite basic in design, but it might seem a little bland to someone who prefers highly textured toys.


Untitled-3Untitled-8Beau is a really great, non-threatening option for someone newer to toys.  While it has an attractive shape, it shouldn’t make many uncomfortable thanks to the unrealistic color options (Fuchsia and Blue) and basic design.  The end of the vibrator is shaped exactly like the head of the penis, having a raise bulge that gives it a familiar look.  The tip of the head has a small impression in it, resembling the urethral opening, and near the base of the shaft is a raise swirl.  The swirl doesn’t look like a vein, it’s just a small detail that adds a little texture.

The size is sort of the ‘just right’ size for most.  It will obviously be too large or too small for some, but is great for the average user.  The total length is 8 1/2″ with 6 3/4″ being insertable.  The girth is pretty much the same throughout the toy and is 5″ in circumference.

It’s not a super large toy, but it’s not the most travel friendly option available and could be a lot more discreet.  You wouldn’t be able to pass this off as anything other than a vibrator, so it’s important not to leave it out if you’re concerned about someone knowing you have adult products.



Beau is powered by two AA batteries that aren’t included.  When you open the battery compartment it doesn’t show you which way to insert the batteries.  There isn’t a little paper, no marking is in the plastic, nothing.  It took me switching the batteries around a few times to get it right.  With the curve facing up, you insert the bottom battery with the minus side first, and the top battery with the plus side first.  Once they’re in place, line up the cap and twist it closed.

There are no buttons on the toy and no light indicators, instead the toy is turned on and up using a dial.  With the bottom facing you, the dial is turned clockwise.  The vibrations start off low and increase in intensity as the dial is turned.  It’s a steady vibration, there aren’t any patterns but it does gradually go from low to high.  To turn it off, you simply turn the dial counterclockwise.


The vibrations are fairly powerful which was surprising to me, and they are nice and rumbly.  It’s easy to go from a nice tease to deep vibrations simply by turning the dial.  There are two motors in the toy, one in the tip and one near the base, but the vibrations are pretty strong throughout the whole toy.  They do travel through the cap, but not enough to make your fingers tingle.

The lowest setting is very quiet, but the highest isn’t unreasonable either.  You can hear it if you’re in the same room, but wouldn’t be able to hear it through a closed door.


Silicone toys are really easy to care for, and the fact that this one is waterproof makes it even better.  With the cap properly tightened, you can hold it under running water without worrying about anything leaking into the toy.  Using antibacterial soap and warm water or your favorite toy cleaner is best for regular use, but you can also clean it with a 10% bleach solution if you’re planning on sharing.  Because there isn’t much texture to the toy, it’s very easy to clean and doesn’t require any special attention.

Beau is compatible with water-based lubricants only, and a little goes a long way thanks to the smooth material.    Unfortunately, this vibe doesn’t come with a storage pouch so you’ll need to find something to put it in.  The packaging won’t be suitable for long term storage and you’ll need something to protect the surface from damage.


The packaging for this toy is pretty basic.  It’s made of thin plastic and is mostly see through.  It gives you some information about the toy, but not a lot.  Inside, Beau is resting inside a tray fits the toy perfectly, preventing it from flopping around inside the box.  When you remove the tray, there’s nothing else inside.  No directions, storage pouch, or anything else.  It’s always nice when a pouch is included with the toy, but at least battery instructions should have been provided.  Once you find something to store your toy in, the packaging can be broken down and recycled.



When it comes to vibrators like this, it’s usually a hit or a miss when it comes to how well they actually work.  Blush Novelties got it right!  It feels a little odd with how hollow it seems in the center (which isn’t noticeable during use), but apart from that, it’s great.  The head of the toy creates a very slight popping and is defined just enough that it stimulates without getting hung up on the pubic bone.

I’m a power queen and was truly surprised with the power behind this one!  It’s not as strong as I would like it to be, but I’m difficult to please.  I can see this being enjoyable and satisfying to most because there’s some variety, and is a great warm up/teasing toy if you’re hard to please like I am.

Now, the whole twin vibrating points are great, but the one by the base doesn’t even come close to stimulating my clit.  Granted, my clit is pretty high up, but I have a hard time seeing how it could directly stimulate both areas at the same time.  It does provide a little more power near the opening of the vagina, so I’m not complaining in the slightest, just pointing it out.

Spunk Lube Pure Silicone is a multipurpose lubricant that’s sure to add that all important element of comfort to your playtime.  Being silicone-based, it never gets sticky and doesn’t dry out; two of the most important things we look for in a lube.  Nothing is more frustrating than needing to reapply mid-session, especially when you start to feel friction because the lube has become sticky or tacky.

Looking for the perfect lube for hand jobs and jerk off sessions?  This is the one to reach for!  It’s incredibly slick and will last as long as you can.  Ladies, never fear, Pure Silicone will work for you as well!  One of the amazing things about this particular silicone lube, is that it’s compatible with all toy material; even silicone toys.  Always test a small area prior to use, but there’s little need to be concerned.

Solo play is great, but this lube can also be used during intercourse and is safe to use with condoms.  The biggest reason we love silicone lube is because of how great it is for anal sex.  I don’t love being on the receiving end when it comes to back door play, but Pure Silicone makes it a much more pleasant experience for me.

The ingredients list is super short for this lube, and doesn’t contain glycerin or parabens.  It seems unlikely that you would have a reaction to it, but if you do, thoroughly clean the area and discontinue use.

Ingredients: Dimethicone, Dimethiconol, Cylopentasiloxane, Cyclohexasiloxane


Pure Silicone is completely smooth and very slick.  It doesn’t feel greasy or oily on the skin, and doesn’t have a heavy feeling to it.  That being said, it also doesn’t absorb into the skin very easily.  Before you think that’s a bad thing, keep in mind that if it absorbed easily you’d have to constantly reapply it to get the desired effect.  Having your skin coated with a layer of slippery liquid doesn’t feel very natural, but works extremely well.  It’s truly impressive how long this product lasts!

Unlike the Spunk Lube Hybrid, this one is totally clear and very thin which is a huge plus if you don’t like the idea of your lube looking similar to cum.  It’s obviously thicker than water, but it doesn’t take long to run if you don’t immediately rub it into place.  The image below shows how quickly it runs.  The photo on the right was taken only seconds after the one on the left; my camera wasn’t focusing fast enough to capture it before it started running.


I prefer thicker lubes in general because it gives me more of a chance to rub it in, but it’s a small thing for me to complain about considering how awesome this lube is in general.

When it comes time to clean up, it’s going to take more than a dirty sock (guys, you know you’ve done it!) laying on your floor to totally remove it.  Using a wipe is helpful, but even that leaves your skin feeling a little less than normal.  Cleaning with soap and water works best, but it depends on your comfort level.  If you don’t totally clean it off it doesn’t get sticky, it just feels slick which can be a little odd (especially between your butt cheeks!).

Once cleaned it off, I’ve noticed that my skin feels really soft after.  I’m not sure if this is normal for a product like this, but it’s another thing I enjoy about using this lube.  It never feels sticky, and doesn’t dry out my skin.


Nothing distracts me more than a super loud toy and an odd smelling lubricant.  Fortunately, Pure Silicone has absolutely no smell to it.  Truly, nothing at all.  I think water has more of a smell than this lube!  I really love that about this product!  No smell also equals no taste.  If you happen to go down on your partner after you’ve used the lube, you’ll only be tasting them!  I wouldn’t recommend using this lube intentionally during oral play, but if you’ve used it and cleaned up, it certainly won’t do any harm.


Untitled-4Untitled-2Pure Silicone is available in 2 oz and 8 oz bottles; giving you the choice of quantity or convenience.  When the 2 oz bottle arrives it’s inside a plastic bag and has a seal that extends from the label and covers part of the cap.  There is a perforated line that goes around the cap, making the top part easy to remove.  Once you’ve removed this area, you’ll see the cover.  It’s black and is your basic press style cap.  It’s very easy to use, even one handed.

The bottle itself is clear and is made from a soft plastic.  It’s very easy to squeeze, so dispensing your lube isn’t an issue, even if your hands are already slick from it.  When the cap is opened and the bottle is tipped upside done, a small amount will seep out of it.  It’s important to keep the cap closed and bottle upright to make sure it doesn’t leak.

The label on the bottle gives you the basic rundown of what the lube is and some of the great qualities it boasts and lists the ingredients.  If you need your bottle to be more discreet for whatever reason, the label can be removed, exposing only the clear plastic.


Whenever my husband sees silicone lube laying around he knows it means one thing, anal play.  I don’t typical need lube during vaginal sex, and have a favorite go-to water-based for toy use.  Silicone in our house equals butt sex, plain and simple.

As stated before, anal sex is not my favorite sexual activity to participate in.  It’s something I treat my husband to from time to time because it’s never been enjoyable for me, and often times can be quite uncomfortable.  I’ve learned to relax more and am starting to embrace it, but that wouldn’t be possible with the use of a good lube.  We started off our anal adventures with a water-based product because it was what we had on hand.  It never felt slick enough for me and I would end up hating every second of sex.  I read about others using silicone lube for anal play and decided to try it out.  This was a long time ago, and was with a different product, but I definitely noticed a difference with the experience.

Fast forward to little over a month ago.  I won a bottle of Spunk Lube Hybrid and fell in love with it!  I was so impressed with how it looked and felt and couldn’t wait to try one of their other lubes.  I was offered the Pure Silicone and let my husband know he would get a treat to help me test out the lube, needless to say he was excited.

After playing together for a little while, we decided we were warmed up and ready to go.  He hadn’t checked out the lube yet, and instantly mentioned how thin it was.  We are both used to thicker lubes, so it was a big difference for him.  Once we were covered in lube, he slipped inside of me.  I was really impressed with how smooth each thrust was.  Anal sex was comfortable to me which isn’t something I normally feel.

We tried the lube in the shower and also had great results!  Even with water running onto us, the lube stayed right where it was supposed to and was a great experience.

I used this lube in a variety of other ways, but because of the slight hassle surrounding clean up, I prefer it solely for anal play.  I don’t want to feel like I have to shower after every time I masturbate (I think we would probably run out of water…).  If it weren’t so hard to clean off, I would use it far more often because of how long it lasts and how well it stays put.
