World of Pure Imagination

Okay, I'm kidding. This lubricant isn't exactly going to be knocking the socks off Mr. Wonka. While it isn't the sweetest lube, this body safe flavored lubricant is the best of both worlds. Not only is the flavor fabulous (for what you're working with), the ingredient list is body safe and unintimidating. My only gripe is the slightly bitter aftertaste and the need to constantly reapply. Other than that, this is easily one of my favorites!

Use

This water-based lubricant, despite being flavored, needn't be limited to oral. While I find most flavored lubricants to be rather irritating, this one works well as both an oral sex flavor enhancer and a lube for smooth, slippery intercourse. Though it has a tendency to dry out, it can easily be reactivated with a few drops of water (or saliva). I wouldn't recommend it for anal, though. I didn't find it to be thick or slick enough for backdoor shenanigans.

I mentioned that this lubricant doesn't contain any of the irritating ingredients typical of flavored lubes (preservatives such as tetrasodium EDTA; or glycerin, petrochemicals, parabens etc). For the most part, it is body safe and it is 100% vegan.

However, there are two things I'll point out. It's worth mentioning for some that this lubricant does contain aspartame as a sweetener. If you're sensitive to this particular artificial sweetener, take note. That, and some people dislike the taste of aspartame (myself included). Though I am fond of this lube in this flavor, it can be a touch bitter at first, kind of like diet cola.

Second, this lubricant uses DMDM hydantoin as a preservative. It has the potential to cause an allergic skin reaction in certain sensitive individuals. Other than that, I find the ingredient list to be very unintimidating, as far as flavored lubes go. Everything in it is body safe and Earth/animal friendly!

Texture / Consistency / Thickness / Viscosity

This lubricant has a very good consistency! It's not too thick, not too thin. While I personally don't think it's cut out for anal sex, it's just the right consistency for just about everything else. It doesn't get sticky and when it dries out, a few drops of liquid (or a slight reapplication) will make it good and slippery once more. When you're done, clean up isn't that big of a deal. It doesn't leave a sticky or greasy residue that leaves you feeling icky. The bottle has a cap like a lot of shampoo bottles have, and it's easy to pour and dispense.

Taste / Aroma

The smell of this product is rather faint. You can distinctly smell raspberries when you open the bottle, but it's not an overpowering candy smell. You can taste it, though. It tastes stronger than it smells. The flavor is very good. It's slightly sweet, not overly artificial and as promised, tastes like raspberries. Well, when I say "raspberries", I mean less like the fruit and more like blue raspberry Jolly Ranchers. The flavor's not overpowering or too sweet.

The aspartame gives the lubricant a slightly bitter taste at first, but that could just be a matter of personal preference. Aspartame tastes strong to me, but it might not bother others. Other than that, this lube is delightful and delicious. I consider myself to be a flavor snob. Sure, Mr. Wonka might find the sweet kick to be lacking, I'm sure he would be delighted by just how like raspberries this lube tastes!

Performance

While this lubricant doesn't last as long as some I've used in the past, I won't hold that against it. Despite the need to reapply or reactivate it every so often, this is a wonderful lube. It mimics vaginal lubrication quite well, doesn't leave behind a sticky residue and is safe and generally nonirritating (pleasant, even) to use for PIV sex.
    • Allergy concerns
    • Feels natural

Packaging

All I ask for in a lubricant bottle is for it to not leak. This bottle doesn't leak, is relatively easily to dispense (once you flip the top) and as a bonus, it's attractive and discreet. :)
    • Discreet looking packaging
    • Easy to use / dispense

    Thanks for the breakdown of the ingredients' safety! I'd been wondering about the vagina-friendliness factor of this lube, so I'm glad to hear it holds up.
