One thing a sex toy reviewer needs a hell of a lot of, is lube. Lube is one of the best things to happen in the history of sex and masturbation, but not all lube is equal. Some contain questionable ingredients, some is composed of simple ingredients that don’t work well with some toys. Other lubes are perfectly safe for use with both the body and whatever you choose to put inside of it. And then there’s The Butters Personal Lubricant, and it’s in a league all of its own.
I had no idea what to expect when I was told I could review The Butters. All I knew was that it’s homemade – by hand – contains no harmful ingredients, and is made by a super sex positive person called Jerome Stuart Nichols. Continue reading “The Butters Personal Lubricant”
Überlube. I’ve had my eyes all over this stuff for absolutely ages, but I would always balk at the price tag. We go through lube at a rate of knots here at the Scandal household, so forking out like, £25 for one bottle never seemed cost-effective to me. I weighed it up many times but, in the end, I always decided to stick with my reliable, less expensive faves.
But then Überlube kindly sent me a box full of goodies and, after clearing out the open bottles I had lying around, it was time to find out why this lube is so universally popular. Continue reading “Überlube Premium Silicone Lubricant”
I’m super delighted to be publishing this guest review from new reviewer, Just A Monkey Reviews. It’s his first time dipping his toes into the waters of the sexy reviewing world, so if you like his style (and his fucking amazing photos) give him a follow on Twitter. Check out what he thought of some picks from MEO’s massive range of lubes and sprays…
I was asked by Scandarella if I would write a guest review of some MEO Lubricants, and jumped at the chance to kick-start my reviewing career. Continue reading “MEO Essentials Guest Review by Just A Monkey Reviews”
As a sex toy reviewer, silicone based lubes have long given me a twitchy eye. The thought of reaching for a bottle of lube during a frenzied masturbation session, only to pick up the wrong one and ruin a silicone toy, pretty much terrifies me. I know that sounds silly, but after a recent accident I had with hand sanitiser that came in a similar shaped bottle to the water-based lube I was reaching for, I feel like my caution was warranted. It’s not easily done, but it does happen.
Still, I hold firm that silicone based lubes have a place in the lotions and potions box, and one I tried recently is Pjur BodyGlide Silicone Lubricant. Continue reading “Pjur BodyGlide Silicone Lubricant”
Welcome to Scandarella’s first guest review! As I’ve reviewed a few flavours for another site, the lovely Tina ‘n’ Keith (there are no links back to them cos they wanted to remain anon) agreed to put these MEO Cock Candy Oral Sex Gels through their paces for me. They were a hit with me and my Fella, but did they tickle the fancy of the discerning Tina and hers? Read on to find out…
I have never really thought about whether I enjoy the taste of my boyfriend. The feel (heaviness on my tongue) and smell (washing powder) were my primary concerns, taste was irrelevant as the first two were so perfect. Similarly, my partner has never had anything but positive things to say about my pussy (I mean, I don’t want to brag but he’s said it’s the best he’s ever tasted more than once… Anyway, I digress.)

What do you reach for after sex, other than the lucky so-and-so you just had it with? Do you grab a wet wipe? The nearest bath sheet, perhaps? And how do you clean up after masturbation? Tissues, or maybe you’re the quiet user of the old wank sock? Well, for the past month or so I’ve been reaching for the Cumpanion Towel, and now it’s time to write my review.

Confession: I’m not very good at deep throating. My gag reflex is possibly the strongest of my body’s natural reactions, and no matter how many times the Fella tells me I’m ‘getting better’ or that I ‘took a bit more that time’ I know he’s just trying to make me feel better. Basically, if he wants more than an enthusiastic bellend servicing, I suck at sucking.
So, when I received my first MEO review package I was delighted to find a bottle of EZ2SUCK Deep Throat Spray had been popped in there. All the promises about turning myself into a professional cock sucker with the help of a pump action bottle and a bit of eagerness had me chomping at the bit to give it a go to see if I could impress my man by taking all of him.

There are some things in my sexy essentials box that many people would deem truly essential. Body safe lubes – water-based flavoured and flavourless – condoms. Some, like massage candles and orgasm enhancing balms, would be deemed essential by way of personal choice. At the same time, there are things missing from my box – hello bondage scissors – which others think I’m mad not to have. And then there’s the things people think are a little more than a waste of money; purpose made sex toy cleaners.
The thing about toy cleaners is they aren’t actually essential. When it comes to keeping your precious fucky things hygienically clean there are loads of options. Depending on the toy, of course. Boiling, bleaching, the dishwasher, a sink of soapy water…they’re all valid choices and they all work and, better still, they don’t cost much, if anything.

Here be dragons! Well okay, not really, there aren’t any dragons at all. But there is Shunga Dragon Sensitive Intensifying Cream which, while not as awesome as actual dragons, is still pretty cool. I’ll tell you why…
Firstly, packaging! I know, I say it every time I do a Shunga review but I’m not afraid to repeat myself. I tell the Fella I love him a dozen times a day, and I do, so there’s no reason I can’t tell y’all that I love Shunga packaging all the time.
As you can see in the pics, this one is a gorgeous icy blue and deepest black box with our favourite Japanese couple loving it up on the front. Oh, and there’s a dragon! I love dragons. Continue reading “Shunga Dragon Sensitive Intensifying Cream”
Until I received this wee 30ml bottle of Pjur MyGlide (along with a bottle of BodyGlide) in a review package, I was a Pjur virgin. I was obviously aware of the brand, but in all honesty I’ve always been happy with Sliquid so hadn’t picked any up.
MyGlide is a waterbased lubricant that’s aimed at women that supposedly has a warming effect. As many vulva owners will tell you, that can be hit or miss. There’s warming and then there’s burning, and it doesn’t take a genius to work out which effect nobody wants to experience. Continue reading “Pjur MyGlide Stimulating Waterbased Lubricant”
