Secret Play Oceanic Wakame & Nori Lubricant

I love sex toys. Not the most shocking of revelations, I know, but I do. I love them the way the Fella loves cars. He can wax lyrical about the shape of a headlight for hours on end, just as I can the shape of a vibrator. He often oooohs over the metallic finish of a paint job, and I do the same thing over the marbling of a hand-poured silicone dildo. But, in all fairness, sex toys aren’t vital to healthy, satisfying sex or masturbation. In my opinion, the only thing that is vital to good lovin’ is lube, and the most recent one to go a few laps around my bedroom is the Secret Play Oceanic Wakame & Nori Lubricant from Latex, Leather & Lace.

Another non-shocker is my love affair with Sliquid. It’s my go-to brand cos it’s easily accessible and there’s a type for pretty much every sex act I can think to perform. Well, apart from fisting. But I’m always on the lookout for something new. Something that comes close to Sliquid. Continue reading “Secret Play Oceanic Wakame & Nori Lubricant”

Sliquid Sassy Water-Based Lubricant

Welcome to my favourite lube! I cannot believe that I haven’t written a stand-alone review of this stuff yet. I mean, it is the best I’ve ever tried. Like, ever. I’ve tried so many lubes but time and again I keep coming back to Sliquid Sassy.

Why? Because it’s basically the one lube to rule them all. Yeah, it’s great to have silicone lube for playing in the bath, oily lube for hand-jobs, flavoured lube for blowjobs… but it’s always a good idea to have a do-it-all water-based lube in the bedside drawer, too. That way, you’re always prepared for spontaneous sex and gotta do it now masturbation.

Sliquid Sassy is that lube for me. There’s a 60ml bottle in my handbag, and in the Fella’s glovebox. There’s a 125ml bottle in his bedside drawer, and a 255ml one in mine. When one ends up empty it’s replaced by another of the same size.

The reason I love it so much is that it lends itself to every type of play. It’s a lovely thick gel which loosens up a little once warmed so provides good cushioning for anal. And for using large toys vaginally. It’s colourless, odourless and flavourless so is great for oral. Well, oral that’s performed on me, that is. I prefer to use flavoured lubes when I give BJs cos the taste of cum makes me wanna hurl. Continue reading “Sliquid Sassy Water-Based Lubricant”

Sliquid Organics Natural Gel

I’ve made no secret of the fact that Sliquid is my favourite brand of lube. From the perfect for pegging Sliquid Sassy to their premium silicone lube, Sliquid Silver (ideal for water-wankers who take glass or steel toys into the bath) there’s something for every sexual situation. One of my absolute faves (and most often purchased) lubes is Sliquid Organics Natural Gel.

We have loads of bottles of different lubes stashed about the place, but this is the one I reach for most often. As well as the spare I always ensure I have tucked away in the toy cupboard, there’s one in the bathroom, one in my ‘most used’ toy box, and one in both the Fella’s and my bedside drawers. It’s my all-rounder, my one lube that lends itself to whatever sexy thing I decide to get up to. Continue reading “Sliquid Organics Natural Gel”

The Butters Personal Lubricant

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 Premium Silicone 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”

MEO Essentials Guest Review by Just A Monkey Reviews

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”

Pjur BodyGlide Silicone Lubricant

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”

MEO Cock Candy Oral Sex Gels

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.)

Pjur MyGlide Stimulating Waterbased Lubricant

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”
