Hmmm…today’s post is going to be just a little raunchy because I would like to tell you about a great sexual find that I made recently. If you are uncomfortable with discussing sex or things related to it, then I suggest you read no further – come back again tomorrow when I have a regular G-rated post. If you are under 18, I think you already know that you should navigate away from this page now – please do so. The rest of you, read on!
I am a firm believer in safer sex. I would love to say safe sex, but we all know that what is purported as safe sex isn’t 100% safe. Still, I write not to depress you but rather to delight you!
As I was saying, I am a very firm believer in practicing safer sex, and as such, I am a big fan of all things Durex. I don’t understand my friends who say that they can’t stand sex with a condom (and I am not talking about my male friends, women say that too). Durex has condoms for all moods, styles, sizes and preferences (they even have a non-latex condom for those allergic to latex!).
Recently, I noticed that Durex had expanded their repertoire of pleasure products. Not only do they have great new condom brands such as Durex Tingle (great stuff!) and Durex Pleasuremax Warming (which I highly recommend), but Durex also now produces an array of lubricants for increased sensitivity. This may be old news elsewhere in the world, but in Nairobi (and probably the rest of East Africa), these products have been available for only a little over a year.
On our Kenyan supermarket shelves, we now have three new Durex lubricants to choose from – Durex Play Heat, Durex Play Feel, and Durex Play Tingle – as well as Durex Play 2-in-1 Massage Gel, a gel that can be used both as a massage gel and as a lubricant. Of these products, I once tried the Durex Play Heat because it came as a freebie with a packet of Durex Fetherlite condoms (the ultimate Durex condom if you ask me), but I had never purchased one of these lubricants for myself…until recently.
You see, my partner loves to receive massages. I like to give them. As such, we’ve been looking for good affordable massage oil for a while now. After a horrific attempt with some (cheap) locally-made coconut oil (I will spare you the details), it occurred to me to try the new Durex Play 2-in-1 Massage Gel. Not only is this product a massage gel, but also a water-based lubricant so that a massage can, if need be, progress easily, seamlessly, and happily into something steamier! (In case you don’t know, condoms shouldn’t be used with oil-based lubricants because these can compromise the integrity of the condom!)
On a whim, I bought some while I was doing some shopping at Nakumatt recently. Whoa! Can I just say that there were two happy Nairobians going about their day the following day?! We tested both the massage quality and the lubricant property of this product. As a massage gel, it is a little light but feels amazingly silky. I had heard that description used often, but nothing could prepare me for the feel of Durex 2-in-1 Massage Gel on skin. Ladies, it sort of feels like one of those moisturizers that costs a fortune for a little pot. It’s light and super moist. As a lubricant, let me just say it worked wonders and my partner likened it to the feel of sex without a condom. Have I mentioned already that this product is edible and tastes sweet? I’ll say no more and let you try it for yourself.
Durex Play 2-in-1 Massage Gel costs about 500 KSh for a 200ml bottle. Believe me, that will be one of the best ways you have ever spent 500 KSh. Durex Play 2-in-1 Massage. I’ll say no more, just try it out…TODAY! When you do, please let me know what you think, of course, keeping in mind that this site is generally not intended to be X-rated.
I wish you happy, fun, safe sex.
