Couples Put Sexy Products To The Test
Self, Sex

YourTango and Durex® sent 4 couples the latest lubes, vibrators, massage oils and more—and asked them to take them for a test run...er...ride. Did these sex enhancers prove to be secret sparks or did they leave something to be desired? Read on.

Couple 1: Linda* and her husband, Bob* (names changed to protect their privacy)   
They tested: Massage & Play, a 2-in-1 massage gel and sex lubricant and the Discover Intimate Massager. (Disclaimer: The Discover Intimate Massager is for external use, only)

The verdict: Both Linda and Bob loved the Discover Intimate Massager. "It was awesome. We massaged each other and we were both totally relaxed," said Linda. Linda especially liked the "nice feelings" it gave her when she used it "down there." The lubricant was also a hit. "It has a good consistency," says Linda. Prior to the product testing, the couple of 11 years, was having "some issues with our bedroom being boring" according to Linda. "Now we are much better off."

Couple 2: Alex* and her fiancé, James* (names changed to protect their privacy)  
They tested: The Allure Intimate Massager and the Massage & Play, a 2-in-1 massage gel and sex lubricant

The verdict: Both Alex and James agree that the Allure Massager was their favorite of the products they tested. "It was fun and very pleasing to my fiance," says Alex. The couple preferred the Massage & Play as a lube rather than a massage gel. "When it dried it left a coating on my partner’s skin," says Alex. "But, when used as a lube it felt good."

Couple 3: Joe* and his significant other, Cindy* (names changed to protect their privacy)  
They tested: Massage & Play, a 2-in-1 massage gel and sex lubricant and Play Utopia Gel, a female arousal gel.

The verdict: Joe was most satisfied with Massage & Play, and said it "helped increase the sensuality of foreplay." Cindy’s favorite was the Play Utopia Gel, which she told Joe, "worked immediately" and that she "could feel the tingly sensation greatly." Both agreed, that the experience changed their opinion on using sex products and toys. "It helped open up the idea of deeper sexploration with my partner and allowed deeper conversation in the bedroom about what we like and don’t like," says Joe.

Couple 4: Ada and her significant other, Bob* (names changed to protect their privacy)
They tested: The Allure Intimate Massager, a multi-speed massager with a discreet design, and Durex Play Ring of Bliss, a vibrating ring with dual pleasure for him and her.

The verdict: Ada’s favorite was the Allure Intimate Massager, while Bob’s was the Play Ring of Bliss. "It really spiced things up!" said Ada about the Allure. "The levels of vibration were perfect," according to Ada, and when using the Ring of Bliss, Bob was able to "enjoy foreplay longer," says Ada. "Which means of course I enjoyed this product, too."
