From time to time it might occur to you to wonder what sorts of ingredients are in your lube. Are the ingredients safe? Wholesome? Vegan?
If you are concerned about using products which conform to vegan dietary guidelines, an online sex-shop called The Sensual Vegan can take care of you. They carry a line of vegan toys, safer sex items, sensual massage products, and lube.
It’s the lube we’ll focus on today, ok?
The owner of The Sensual Vegan sent a bottle of Hathor Aphrodisia Lube for Jane’s Guide to test. It arrived packaged securely but frugally in a small cardboard box with what appeared to be biodegradable packing peanuts. Nice touch!
Hathor Aphrodisia is a water-based, glycerin-free lube made by a small, all-vegan company in Canada. The lube’s formula incorporates herbs such as Horny Goat Weed which purportedly can increase arousal. Horny Goat Weed? Sounds promising!
The lube itself comes in an unobtrusive bronze-colored bottle decorated with an image of a heart. The heart is surrounded by…sperm? Could they be sperm? I’m not sure. Hm. Intriguing!
Depending on the size you order, you’ll end up with either a pump top or a flip top. The pump top delivers a healthy squirt of lube and with the flip top you could just go wild.
I tried out Hathor Aphrodasia Lube with a pair of larger sex-toys and I found it to be perfectly sufficient at keeping me slippery for a nice long time. It dries with a bit of stickiness on the skin, but the stickiness was neither excessive nor objectionable.
Because I cannot have sex in a linear fashion (ie touching, licking, fucking, done), I’m always interested in how lubes taste. I just won’t use a lube if I’m going to be worried about how it will taste when I lick it off skin during rounds two, or three, or seven.
Hathor Aphrodisia Lube tastes…well, it doesn’t taste bad, but it also doesn’t taste great. It’s got a bit of a sharp tang to it that isn’t by any means horrible, but it certainly wouldn’t be the first taste I’d choose to lick from my lover’s body.
Could that be the Horny Goat Weed?
If you don’t mind or won’t notice the slightly sharp taste of this lube, Hathor Aphrodisa will keep you happily wet and completely vegan throughout all your lovemaking adventures.
