This definitely added another dimension to oral. We are both very fond of performing oral on one another and do so quite frequently but had only rarely used a flavored lube (or any lube at all, for that matter) for this purpose. It spiced things up a bit as there was definitely something sexy about feeling that extra-slippery glide as my wife's breasts and lips slide up and down my shaft. I also applied some to her nether regions to see what I thought of that flavor combination, which wasn't bad, either. ;-)
As mentioned by @lilruggedboy and @isha4god87, we also thought the taste was very similar to cherry cough syrup. This wasn't necessarily a negative, mind you, just an observation. We were both fairly indifferent to the taste. It wasn't bad, but it wasn't anything to write home about, either.
The biggest downside (as noted by @MrsS, @imaginedhaven, @lilruggedboy, and @isha4god87) was definitely the tackiness that seemed to take over rather quickly. My wife eventually got to the point where she just didn't feel comfortable continuing without taking a break to wash up a little, which put a temporary damper on things, but we were able to continue afterward without any issues. This may not be as much of an issue for others, but she didn't like it.
I don't know. This may not be an entirely fair review as I feel that we weren't put off so much by any shortcomings on the part of the product itself as by the extra hassle that using lube in general seems to create. I understand that this may not be a big deal for many people because the preference for or necessity of lube most likely causes one to be more forgiving of any minor annoyances. However, my wife's natural lubrication has always been very reliable and available in abundant supply, so I think it's easy for us to be put off by even the slightest negative aspect when it comes to lube, which makes us a little more critical in this area.
Anyway, I gave this 3½ stars because I felt that it did everything it was supposed to do; however, it probably isn't something that we would use on a regular basis due to the extra work required to deal with something we don't really need anyway.
Used in conjunction with Lifestyles - 3Sum condom.
Excited to try their other flavors!
Overall, it was okay.
For cherry flavored stuff, it wasn't that bad. It actually tasted like real fresh cherries, but it wasn't strong at all. I could still taste a bit of latex and for that reason, it won't be my go to - I HATE the taste of latex and can be a huge turn-off and just makes it gross.
It did work in lubricating action, though! It was slick but not super thick like some lubes do and made the giving head easy. I didn't notice a residue, but I may have licked most of it off and we started doing other things so we switched condoms.
I didn't find that it gave any sensation since it only hit my mouth, but I don't think it is meant to.
For me, flavored lubes need to be just that, flavored and lubey. Like I said above, I have others I prefer (so far), such as (Dickalicious in strawberry and a Hot Buttered Rum one that I forget the brand of). If you really like Cherry (but not cough syrup cherry) though, I would definitely give this a shot!
I was definitely worried going in because of how strongly I felt about catching just a little taste of lube in the past. I was somewhere between expecting and afraid that the cherry flavor wouldn't mask the fake plastic-like taste I've come to associate with lube or condoms. Not so! It smelled and tasted like cherries, which to me was a welcome surprise and which the husband greeted with a mildly amused, "well, what were you expecting?"
To get the full experience of the lube, we tried it during handsy foreplay, oral, and vaginal intercourse. While it wasn't really an issue during the latter two, it did become very tacky on my hand rather quickly--not so bad because it does wash right off, but still off-putting enough that I felt the need to dock it a star.
Overall a very solid beginning to our exploration in lube! Gone are the days of the sad little Astroglide tube on our bedside table.
