ID pleasure - gel by I-D Lubricants - review by Blinker

Is pleasure supposed to burn?

If you're looking for a tingling sensation, you may have a better time rubbing Aquafresh on your snatch. This lube has an unpleasant effect, doesn't last long, and the ingredients are downright bothersome.
The bottle looks like a dildo, but please don't use it as one.
It mimics the signs of a painful UTI.

extremely useful review


ID Pleasure is a water-based lubricant that also promises to be an “arousal” lube with special added natural ingredients. It contains a few natural ingredients that claim to increase blood circulation to the genitals, but the tingling sensation that is felt is due to the addition of menthol. Pleasure contains gingko biloba leaf (the addition of which claims to prolong erections) and extracts of red clover. Red clover acts similar to niacin, which increases blood flow, but beware of this lube. Science has linked red clover to breast and uterine cancers in several studies. This lube only contains small traces of the clover and may not be harmful, but overall, this lube isn't really worth buying anyway. Also, ID Pleasure contains glycerin which is known to spread the growth of microbes. Those who are sensitive to yeast infections may want to be careful with this one.

A full list of ingredients include: Water, Glycerin, Propylene Glycol, Cellulose Polymer, Polyehtylene Oxide, Sodium Benzoate, Ginko Biloba Leaf Extract, Trifolium Pratense (red clover) flower extract, Methylparaben, Carbomer 981, Tetrahydroxypropyl Ethylenediamine, Diazolidinyl Urea, EDTA flavor, and Menthol.

An added warning: amounts of red clover have provided some people with a reaction similar to an allergic reaction of aspirin. Even though the product contains minimal traces of red clover, please stay away from it if you even THINK you are allergic to aspirin, for your own safety.

Texture / Consistency / Thickness / Viscosity

ID Pleasure is a thin lube in a bottle shaped like a dildo. The bottle's design makes it easy to pour, and I've noticed it doesn't gush out like many other lubes have a tendency to do. It feels slick and almost warm at first. Tested on the back of my hand, it sunk in and felt nice, but I didn't notice any sort of tingling or pleasurable sensations whatsoever. The lube doesn't become thin and runny like so many others, but it isn't exactly thick either. I used this lube once and ONLY once with my partner and we were both annoyed by how sticky it became. We had to reapply and found out that less is better with this monstrous creation from hell.

Taste / Aroma

You won't notice the scent of Pleasure unless it's on your partner and you perform oral in which case your nose is right on top of the stuff. I would recommend against using this lube with oral action because this stuff tastes horrible. It has a chemically minty taste with an aftershock of shit.

When my partner and I first applied this lube to our genitals, it went on slick and nice, but dried up in a matter of minutes and we were a mangled ball of sticky bits. When we had to reapply, that's when I noticed the "pleasurable tingling" that the lube supposedly delivers. It felt like I had a UTI. It burned. My boyfriend insisted his penis felt fine, so I was glad for that, but my vagina was horrified. I laid in the fetal position on the bed while my boyfriend ran to get a warm wet washcloth to wipe this goop away. Luckily, the lube is easily removed with a little warm water, but the tingling/burning/oh-my-god-kill-me-now sensation lingers for a good 15 minutes (at least in my case).

Before I tried ID Pleasure I was always mildly curious about warming/tingling lubes, but this has scared me away from them entirely. If you genuinely enjoy a tingling sensation, like you're standing on a mountaintop covered in snow, then give this one a try. But be warned: all that tingles is not pleasure.

ID Pleasure lube comes in a giggle-worthy bottle. The flip-cap top is easy enough to open with one hand, so it is quite convenient. However, the labels on the packaging are less than informative. They praise the wonders of the "natural ingredients" found inside and promise a fun, pleasurable experience for you and your partner.

Unfortunately, no guarantee was mentioned on the bottle.
    • Can be opened with one hand

    The bottle sucks, people. No one wants a leaky, condom-shaped lube (or do they?). lol
