I read a review that the person didn't like the "color" of this and that it isn't really a cream. Well, that's not true at all. It's a light creamy white and if that reminds you of something else, it should only enhance the whole play time between the sheets, not "put you off". That being said, hubby and I have tried multiple lubes, gel, natural based, silicone, etc. You name it, we've probably tried it, even the ones that make you mutually tingle(not our favorite but if it works for you, go for it). This was felt so completely different from the usual clear gels. A soft, velvety texture that wasn't sticky or slimy, just really natural feeling. I will say that sometimes you gotta switch the lube with the type of condom you are using. Hubby had on the Kimono really thin one so that enhanced things really nicely.(for example if you are using a thicker latex, then you might want a gel based silicone so it will last longer). This one definitely took our night to warp speed if you get the drift. Try the sample at the very least. I can almost guarantee you'll be back for the big bottle like I am right now.
