Spot On's consistency is reminiscent of Blistex Medicated Lip Ointment---the closest description would be a light cream. It dispenses easily in pea-sized amounts from its flip-top tube. It then absorbs or rubs away easily---when tested on my inner wrist, it absorbed completely, leaving no residue, in under a minute. No residue remains on the finger you apply it with, either. Luckily, while the cream absorbs naturally into the skin, the stimulating effect of peppermint oil remains quite present in the mucus membrane of the vagina and g-spot for some hours after application.
Spot On is marketed as being tasteless and odorless, and while you can't smell it from a few inches away, the cream does include peppermint oil, so it is neither odorless nor tasteless. The scent is light and creamy with a hint of peppermint, and not at all medicinal. The taste, on the other hand, was lightly minty but slightly medicinal. It tastes similar to licking your lips after you've applied medicated lip ointment, but Spot On does not have the bitter aftertaste that lip balm does.
Fortunately, the scent is light enough and natural enough to not excite any of my fragrance sensitivities. Also, while the taste is present, it should not interfere with oral sex. For one, the cream stays generally where it was applied, and even if some met your tongue, the taste won't make you cringe.
Spot On stimulates the g-spot (and all other mucus membranes it comes into contact with, such as the vaginal walls and labia minora) quite successfully. The sensation is somewhere between tingling, cooling, awake, and aware. I was very grateful that it neither burned nor stung my body.
While the cream that is the peppermint oil's vehicle absorbs very quickly after application, the stimulation of the peppermint itself continues for several hours. The full effect, for me, lasted about two hours, and I still felt heightened stimulation for 5 total hours after use. Fans of marathon sessions will be pleased by Spot On's longevity, but those of us who like to move on with our day may be distracted by the long-lasting sensation.
Doc Johnson packages Spot On in a minimal, mint green cardboard box. The box holds a 2 ounce plastic flip-top tube of the cream. The tube is the sort which sits on its cap, and given that the mint green label proudly proclaims its function as a "G-SPOT STIMULATING GEL," it would be best to store this in a cabinet where your guests don't usually peep.
The opening in the lid makes it easy to dispense a pea-sized amount of cream without making a mess of you or of the tube.
I enjoyed Spot On much more than I expected to. For clarity's sake---I already know where my g-spot is, and I'm capable of g-spot orgasms, so I wasn't asking this product to aid me on a quest. I just wondered how "stimulating products" felt. I generally avoid products with glycerine because I was prone to yeast infections when I was younger, but I was curious about what "stimulating" products actually did, so I took the risk and am actually quite pleased with the results. I did test Spot On on the inside of my wrist to check for any reaction before applying it internally.
Following the instructions on the tube, I "applied a small amount to index finger and rubbed around the vaginal cavity," but my first "small amount" only made it as far as the labia. Almost immediately, I felt sensation---it's hard to describe, as it wasn't quite "tingling," but also wasn't "cooling." The nerve endings were definitely woken up, and I was surprised to find that it felt rather good, and didn't burn at all. Heartened, I spread my labia with my other hand, and this time was successful in "rubbing around the vaginal cavity." The same cooling/tingling/very awake and aware sensation graced my vaginal walls. I felt like my PC muscles tightened up a bit as a response to the cream, and though I was using just one finger I felt tighter around that finger than I usually do.
My greatest curiosity about Spot On was whether my g-spot would react differently to it than the rest of my vagina did---in other words, if people who haven't found their g-spots yet might be able to apply the cream and then have better luck in picking out the sensation. The answer to that was no---my g-spot responded to the cream in the same aware/awake/tingling/cooling sensation as my walls and labia had. So, Spot On won't single out the g-spot---but it will stimulate it.
I went on to have a g-spot orgasm with just my finger, and then I grabbed my favorite g-spot tool (the VIP) and had a few more. I was puzzled by the fact that the presence of the cream seemed to reduce my natural lubrication a bit, but that didn't interfere with play because the cream served as a lubricant. I couldn't say whether or not I made it to orgasm faster than usual, because I'm usually quick to orgasm. They were very satisfying orgasms, though.
In the aftermath, I was a little dismayed by how long my vagina remained "stimulated." The peppermint feeling was strong for about two hours after application, and I still felt the residual edge from it five hours later. Longevity might be positive for some users, but for me it was the equivalent of making a pot of coffee to stay up to get work done, but then finishing the work earlier than you expected, and wanting to fall asleep but having to sit in bed and wait for three extra hours while the caffeine wears off. The other slightly negative after-effect was the VIP looked creamy and strange after the experiment, though the cream would probably absorb into a human partner. Finally, I haven't gotten a yeast infection, so either my vagina's toughened up over the years, or Spot On is not a very strong yeast infection catalyst.
On the whole, Spot On performed much better than I had expected it to. I won't be using it for everyday play (my g-spot is already quite sensitive), but I might use it during times of the month I know the cream will be flushed out more rapidly than 5 hours after use.
