Accidental Discovery

FieryRed FieryRed
Recently, I played with my Spur, using my new Satin by Sliquid organic, all-natural, glycerin- and paraben-free, water-based lube. I didn't wash the Spur right away afterward. The next day, when I went to wash it, I noticed that several parts of it felt smooth and silky--not tacky and draggy like it normally does. The lube had dried and left an invisible coating on the toy in those areas, making it feel EXACTLY like real skin!

Has anyone else noticed an effect like this? I'm going to try purposely coating it tonight, and see how it feels tomorrow. For those who like to powder their toys, this may be a better alternative!

Hmmm, good point--it may only need a few drops of water to reactivate the lube!

Interesting. But just fyi, Sliquid Satin isn't organic. It's not from Sliquid's Organics line, and even the formulations from that line aren't 100% organic.

Oh, hell, you're right--I remembered incorrectly on that. It's just all-natural.

How does organic differ from natural?

Well, it depends on the context. "Certified organic", for vegan products, means that all of the ingredients are made from organically-grown plants (free of pesticides and chemical fertilizers). Obviously, the traditional or scientific meaning of "organic" is simply a substance that comes from a living organism.

"It puts the lotion on its skin..."

This is actually really cool. I haven't tried Vixskin, but that sticky/tacky/draggy texture everyone mentions sounds a bit icky Does the smoothness hold up during use, or do you lube as liberally as normal? If you'll be doing a review on the Spur this information would be really helpful. I can't be the only one that likes silky textures!

LMAO!

Well, I reviewed the Spur a few months ago--it was one of my first reviews here, and I've already done the follow-up as well. But, sadly, the results of my purposeful experiment weren't nearly as good as the accidental results! It could be that, during use, a thicker and more even coating of lube was applied...haha. It's possible that with two or more coats, I might end up with the same results.

I know what Vixen should do, though. I now have two toys that have a matte-textured silicone that feels silky and smooth, not velvety: the Zini Zook, and the Wonderland White Wabbit C-Ring. Vixen just needs to apply that type of finish to their VixSkin toys! I'm sure it's totally just that easy, right?

Hate to tell you this, but certified organic does not mean pesticide free!

They are only allowed to use certain, approved pesticides and some of them are still dangerous. Of course, it's still better than the synthetic crap used in non-organic, conventional agriculture! I just think it's a common misperception that no pesticides are used in organic agriculture. You should still be washing off your produce, etc.

Well then. Clearly I am not remembering all my details on organic-related stuff, lately! Thanks for the correction, WW!

No, it's not that bad, at least in use. If you lube it, it's wonderful - any water based or possibly hybrid lube. The sticky comes after washing & drying it and you can just keep it in it's container, or dust it with cornstarch. Either way you need to rinse it off before use to remove the cornstarch, or any little fuzzies that stick to the bare dildo. However, in use, as long as there is some lube on it, natural or bottled, it is very slick.

Thanks for the reply... I am still looking at getting a vixskin and I was a little worried about the drag that everyone is reporting.
