Review: Sliquid Silk

sliquid silk review my tickle trunk

By now I’ve done enough Sliquid reviews that you probably get the message – OMFG I LOVE SLIQUID. I was truly lucky to find it early on and not have to endure too many bad lube experiences (with the exception of one later on), and I continue to sing its praises. But I thought I’d talk about WHY I like Sliquid Silk, especially in comparison to other Sliquid variations.

First off, I hold this bottle very close to my heart. Literally. When I spotted the vibrant purple bottle and looked at the price tag, I immediately clutched it to my chest in a primal “back off bitches” stance. See, Come As You Are had THE most bonkers sale last month, so bonkers in fact that I drove all the way back to Toronto for it even though I was visiting my boyfriend in another city. I had no intention on really buying anything, because so many sales are advertised in such a generous way, only to be a disappointing 10% off in reality. But oh was I wrong. Between 30% off ALL sex toys & props, and their clearance bins with savings of up to 90% off, I was happy I made the trip. Come As You Are retails Sliquid in the range of $30, and, guys…

Review: Sliquid Naturals Lube Cube

Sliquid Naturals Lube Cube

Lube turns me on. It just does. I’ve had a long-running sexual fantasy involving a tarp and enough bottles of baby oil that I’m pretty it’d cause an accident, so it goes without saying that I like my sex wet. I want to hear it, feel it, taste it – and I’m glad to say that this pack from my favourite lube brand hits all five senses.

It’s no secret I love Sliquid, so let me give you the TL;DR of this review now: it’s awesome. What’s also awesome is a company who makes dozens of lube types AND has the consideration to say, “don’t waste your money on a whole bottle of something you don’t know” and instead packs an entire line of premium lube into a teeny little box.

Review: Sliquid Organics Silk Lubricant

Sliquid Organics Silk Sliquid Organics SilkWater & silicone based hybrid lubricant review

I don’t remember a time before my Sliquids. I don’t really want to. All I remember is lying there after sex thinking, “oh God get it off me”, and I wasn’t talking about the guy.

I received this lube as a review item years ago, and honestly, I’ve just finished the bottle. I remember the first time I used it, I had paired it with the Lovemoiselle Noemie Ceramic Dildo (which I won’t review because I had no idea how to use it back then), closed the blinds, and locked my bedroom door. I was very rudely interrupted by my now-ex-boyfriend who decided to pop in and mock me for masturbating. Needless to say, he didn’t finish the job, so I had to walk around for a few hours with this lube still on.

How to Choose the Right Lube

sliquid naturals organic lube

Why use lube?

It’s a common (and incorrect) assumption that lube is strictly for those with dryness problems. While lube does add a whole new level of comfort to those who may be struggling with their own natural lubrication, it also adds excitement, texture, and flavour to any kind of sex. It can help with a too-big man, condom dryness, breakage, and just generally cutting down the time between arousal and actual lubrication (if it ever comes at all!)

But one lube does not fit all, both for bodies and for certain sexual acts, so when it comes to choosing the right lube, it’s not so cut and dry. Factors like materials, safety, flavours, allergies, sensations, and much more all come into play whether you’re choosing lube for the first time or the twentieth. In partnership with Lubezilla, I’ve created a big ‘ol guide for the safest and most sensual lubricant that fits your particular sexual scenario. Let’s start with the basics first…

Review: The Butters Personal Lubricant and Moisturizer

The Butters Lubricant with a butter knife and dish by my tickle trunk

Any past readers will remember how loyal I am to my favourite lube, and how hard it is for me to stray. So when I unwrapped The Butters from Peepshow Toys, I was delightfully perplexed with every aspect of it.

I received two varieties; the first is the original lube and moisturizer with aloe vera and shea butter (yellow label), and the second is made with raw honey and cocoa butter (orange label). Honey & cocoa butter costs a few bucks extra, but is safer for those with allergies to soy or wanting to avoid palm oils, as both are found in the original aloe vera and shea butter formula. Both are heavily moisturizing, but both are like, well, butter.

Review: Big Oh! Box Q4 2016

big oh! box sex toy subscription my tickle trunk review

This review is so late that I’m truly ashamed, so a big shout out to Big Oh! Box for being patient with me and not throwing me into the fires of hell. Obviously you can’t get this specific box anymore, but much like my previous reviews of Big Oh!, I more aim to provide an idea of their selection and quality than I do to push certain products. That said, I’m going to do this a bit more in a review-style format, because I have feelings on certain products.

As mentioned before, the boxes seem to come with a built-in theme of the quarter, and this quarter’s theme was something I haven’t had much of a chance to explore: sensation play. It was packed in its usual plain black box with branded interior – which my cat once again fell in love with – and wrapped in their trademark red tissue paper. I haven’t subscribed to a subscription box for a while, but I really never get tired of feeling like I’m opening a present, which is a unique experience that Big Oh! Box continually provides over other guys.

Shop Canada: Interview with Cailey of La Petite Mort

le petit more my tickle trunkcailey le petit more my tickle trunk Late last year, I sat down with Cailey Root, the owner of Toronto’s very own La Petite Mort, to talk about her new store and ask the really hard questions (like whether she’d Fuck, Marry, or Kill the Tantus Rumble). The store is online-based, catering exclusively to Canadians looking for beautiful, body-safe toys without having to go south of the border. She offers a wide selection of curated toys, as well as lingerie, lube, and my favourite – art! Check out La Petite Mort for your Canadian sex toy needs!

Review: B Swish Bcute Pearl + Bfilled Vibrating Plug

Bswish Bcute Classic Pearl review my tickle trunk

I never know what to do with little toys like this – too small to do much for insertion, but bigger than a simple bullet, so the size seems wasteful on a tiny little clitoris. I decided that the B Swish Bcute Pearl vibe was an external-use toy, but it wouldn’t stop me from giving it a go elsewhere!

Now, I’m going to do another mini review within this one, and mention that I have another B Swish toy – the Bfilled Vibrating Plug. I scored this for $5 at the previously mentioned Come As You Are annual sale (RIP), and it was my first, highly coveted vibrating plug. It’s a big one too, at 2.5” girth – they don’t call it Bfilled for nothing!

Review: MEO Cock Candy

meo cock candy lube review my tickle trunk

I like a good blowjob, and it’s a concept that needs little improvement. But much like eating your favourite food for years on end, you might want to change up the flavour of the week. Perhaps you love the taste of dick, but perhaps you also love piña coladas.

The aptly named MEO Cock Candy set comes in a nifty clear flight bag for easy storage and transport, with 5 colourful bottles of trial-sized, flavoured lubricant (in vanilla, piña colada, strawberry kiwi, strawberry, and cherry). I’ve mentioned previously that I’m not huge into flavoured lubes, but I’m game for anything that’ll make my boyfriend’s penis into an ice cream sundae.

Review: Big Oh! Box + Booty Box

my tickle trunk review big oh! box booty subscription

Big Oh! Box has thrown their hat into the adult subscription box game and they’ve done so with class and diverse, sex-positive options. In their subscription service, you will have the choice between “With Oh! Friend” and “Sol-Oh!” – boxes tailored for partnered and individual use, respectively. Following this selection, you get to customize your box by choosing your pleasure; dual stimulation, vibrator, back door, or male stroker – I really love their level of customization, and not restricting it to a specific gender.
