Creamy, Dreamy, Butter like Lube.
From the moment I opened my first sample sachet of Boy Butter lube I’ve been madly in love with it. When Vibrator.com asked me which adult products I would like to review from their vast sex toy inventory, my mind skipped over all of the toys, Vibrators and other products. Honing in on a 4oz tub of Boy Butter – such a cute but cheeky name, I just love it!!
Whilst Boy Butter have now got 5 different formulations this review is for their “Original’ formula which is an oil based lubricant. It is important to note that whilst this original formula is safe for use with silicone toys Boy Butter Original is not compatible with Latex Condoms
What Is Boy Butter?
Boy butter is the brain child of Eyal Feldman. A New Yorker looking for a lube that didn’t get sticky and soon need to be re-applied whilst also not clinging to the skin and leaving greasy residue behind on the user for days to come. When he couldn’t find such a product he created one!
It arrives in a traditional butter like tub that from a distance really does look like a miniature, 4oz tub of butter. Although it doesn’t need to be kept in the refrigerator, you can put it in there to add some kinky chills to playtime. I’ve found it incredibly refreshing to do so during out hot Australian summer. You just have to be sure to hide it right at the back of the fridge otherwise you may end up with it on your toast!
Its great for boys, girls, and toys as well and can be used in almost every way you would use regular lube – regular latex condoms being the exception as it may have a negative impact on the condom’s integrity.
As with all lubes the ingredients are just as important as it’s performance. The ingredients are labelled as;
This is where boy butter truly impresses me. It goes on like creamy body butter. Unlike your usual clear, runny and often sticky lubes this one is soft and creamy. It goes on and it stays on, letting you get lost in what you are doing. A good lube is one you don’t really notice during use. It goes on, it stays on and it does its job without causing irritation or having any negative impact upon your sexual experience.
Despite being an oil based lube it doesn’t stain, I even rubbed it on satin which loves to soak up oil and turn into a stain, but still No Stain! It also lasts an incredibly long time and rarely do you need to stop and grab more. Wether you’re playing it solo, with toys or with a partner it lasts for a really long time.
Whilst its longevity may make you wonder about it being hard to clean off you really don’t need to worry. Bot butter washes off with just water. No soap needed to get it off of your skin or toys. Just water. It really doesn’t get much easier than that. Well actually it kinda does.
If you are as lazy as me and really don’t want to get up and wash down afterwards it actually just soaks into your skin just like regular body butter. I’ve fallen asleep more than once after using it and haven’t noticed any kind of residue the next morning. That said, when its just me alone or with a toy I do need to rinse my hands off as they feel a little greasy, but I’ve got to say I much prefer greasy hands and moisturised pink bits as opposed to sticky ones Ive had after using other lubes.
This original formula is also scentless and tasteless. I’ve tried the water based one which I swear smelt like coconut butter, but the original has no smell. The sickly sweet, almost bitter taste of some lubes really puts me off wanting to use them. Lube should be felt but not tasted in my opinion, and Boy Butter original just doesn’t have a noticeable taste to me. It makes the skin feel creamy and kind of luscious but it does so without affecting the taste buds.
I absolutely love this product however I cant overlook the fact that this original formulation isn’t safe to be used with regular, latex condoms1. I want to give it 5 stars, but I think this aspect is a rather large deterrent so am only giving it 4 out of 5 stars.
Thank you to Vibrator.com for sending me this product in return for an unbiased review of the product.
