Product Review: Would you like some KY Jelly with that?

His and Hers Lube

His and Hers Lube


          After 20 years of marriage, every now and then, a product comes along that makes us both raise an eyebrow; something that would enhance our sex life without causing damage to our psyches.

Case in point:  KY Yours+Mine

          We have always been adventurous in this area of our relationship.  We developed a list before we even were married of what was bad kinky and what was good kinky.  The list for the bad has shortened considerably over the years however certain topics will never cross over to the good list.  Those would be:

1.    Animals

2.    Children

3.    Bodily fluids

4.    Other people

These four things will never be removed from the bad kinky list without some severe brain injury. 

          Now of course we have met people who have indulged with multiple partners and have heard of swingers clubs and the like.  These people usually turn out to be the most fucked up couples we know.  We say, “Don’t ever do anything that you would be ashamed of.”  So you will never find either of us in a three some with a chicken and toddler with a full diaper.  Won’t happen!

          Which brings us back to the KY Yours+Mine.  First we must say we love the commercials!  One of them has a couple who mentions they have kids and a short time to have sex and then a second later shows them basking in post coital bliss, still in their clothes albeit a bit disheveled.  Never ones to back down from something that could enhance our sex lives, we purchased this before taking it on a cruise.  (We’ll have a separate entry for cruises.) 

          The bottles are two test tubes, one colored maroon the other blue, and they are held together with some white plastic.  One tube is marked “his” and the other “hers”.  Now, since we had tried the KY that heats and were fans of this, we were looking forward to spending some time with this new stuff.

Lee’s reaction: My first reaction to this was, “What the fuck?”  It goes on cold and seconds later you realize you are tingling.  The lubricant’s active ingredient is mint and I don’t know about you but the last thing my hoo hoo needs is an Altoid.   I felt like one of those Peppermint Patty commercials, “I feel like I’m bobsledding without pants down the tundra!”  I couldn’t concentrate on Paul because of my minty muff.  

Paul’s reaction: If you are a considerate lover, which I like to think that I am, you have a sense of how much game you have, how much you can do, to bring your partner to maximum pleasure before you cannot give any more without giving everything – if you get my meaning. That being said, the men’s part of the KY had a desensitizing effect. Yes, it made my dick numb. Not a Novocain, dead chunk of meat numbness, but just enough to throw my mojo off. I found myself pumping away like a horny old man with no internal sense of whether or not I had past the point of no return. On vacation, it wasn’t so bad. I was more than happy to spend some quality experimentation while recalibrating my inner studliness. But when we are at home and only have minutes to reach heaven, the time between the baby’s nap and the five-year old’s lunch, Lee and I are a precision team. We cannot afford to have some lube throw off our rhythm lest one of us reach heaven while the other is still in limbo.

In conclusion:  After a few more tries with the lubricants, we decided to forget about the ‘his’ and just use the ‘hers’.  We both became use to the minty fresh feel and didn’t giggle as much anymore when we used it.  For those men out there who need an extra layer of stamina, this may help.  Women, you have been warned.

    I really enjoyed reading about the new KY product. I can’t say that I will run out and pick some up for myself and the missus…although a little minty hoo-hoo might be an interesting thing. As for the prolonging effect for the man…that could come in handy. Of course, like you Paul and Lee, we too have to coordinate our “adventures” like a precision team.

    Perhaps on those rare occasions when just the two of us have a chance to get away we might indulge and give this stuff a shot. Of course, I don’t think I will be able to get past the image of Lee bobsledding without pants down the tundra…and for that I say “Thank you Lee”.

    This product came up in discussio at my “Goddess” Weekend. I immediately went to the review and read it aloud to my girlfriends. The term “Minty Muff” is now widely used in my circle of friends. Thank you so much for stretching our vocabulary and making us laugh until our hoo-hoos hurt 😀

    Ok….thanks you two I spent the 20 bucks on this KY your and mine because of your discussion(not to mention the commercials)….Minty muff…hmmmm. I guess I could have gotten the halls treatment or even an altoid and saved the money but it was all in the experience. Now I know about the tundra feeling…whoooooweeeee.

    Wife and I love these products. Especially the hers! it works really great. She only wishes the tube was a little larger. Can you get it in a bigger tube?
