The longer I review products in this industry, the more neat shit I find. Not to mention the “why didn’t I think of that and I could be a millionaire” stuff. To me, the Lube Shooter by Kinklab is just that kind of thing.
The obvious use for this device is anal prepping. But honestly, it works just as well vaginally. At some point or another- menopause, pregnancy, post-partum, or just from dehydration- many women will find that they aren’t producing as much lubrication down there as they usually do, and it can make sex painful. Regardless of how turned-on she may be.
Nothing feels sexier than slipping into your lady when she is warm, wet, and inviting- not warm, dry, and hostile. I even like using it when I’m working up for a bigger toy or one that has a lot of drag, it just takes the uncomfortable feeling out. And if you know you will be having sex, you can always lube up just before getting in action and your partner won’t even know the difference.
Anally, it’s much the same. Rather, no one produces sufficient anal lube for anal penetration. And it can be difficult because of the double sphincters to introduce lube up there without making a complete mess, or ending up under-lubed. With the Lube Shooter, you can get however much or little you want, mess-free.
The process of using these is pretty straight-forward. Although the package says it comes with three shooters, it’s more like 3 tubes that you fill up, and one plunger and cap that you constantly reuse. The package also says that these are disposable. However, I wash and reuse them. That said, here’s what you need to know should you also choose to go with the washing method: The Shooters are made from ABS plastic. While it’s not a highly porous material, it is not considered sterilizable either. If you are a couple sharing these, I suggest putting them in separate sandwich bags that are labeled. One for her vaginally, one for her anal, and one for him. No sharing, please. No matter how good of a job washing you do, these are germs you don’t want passing from one person (or orifice) to another!
Instruction-wise, you get the tube you are wanting to use. It’s pretty much like a straw with a rounded tip that has a pencil-lead sized hole on the end, and place the black tip over the end to keep lube from spilling out as you pour it in. Obviously, the thinner the lube you use, the easier it is to pour in and not end up with too many air bubbles. I find that as long it’s thinner than lotion, it works pretty well.
You fill the tube with as much lube as you need (I find about ¼ full is plenty enough for me), partially insert the plunger, invert the tube and finish inserting the plunger while simultaneously pushing the air out. Remove the black cap, exposing the small opening and lube, and it is ready for immediate use. You can use it right away, or leave the cap on and stick it aside (in a plastic bag to ensure it doesn’t spill) until you are ready to use it. In fact, I recommend this as it eliminates the work in the heat of the moment.
If you are using a thicker liquid, I use this alternate method: Grab your tube and place the plunger completely inside. Put the amount of lube into a medicine cup that you are planning to use, and draw up the lube like a syringe. Never draw it up directly out of the lube as it could contaminate your bottle of lube and lead to infections. Obviously, don’t use a liquid so thick that it would prevent you from being able to thoroughly clean the tube afterwards. Cleaning is simple with soap and water, a toy cleaner, or a 10% bleach solution.
The Shooter are 3 ¾” insertable, 5” total, but only a ½” diameter. I find the best way to use them was to insert the tube as far as possible, start depressing the plunger and slowly ease the tube out. It thoroughly lubricates the passage from the entrance, all the way in. And, sorry about this but it’s true, I can’t help but compare the process a bit to using a tampon. Except it’s lube instead of the actual tampon. So there you go fella’s, can’t say you haven’t always been just a bit curious!
Thanks to GoodVibes for sending me the Lube Shooter by Kinklab to review!
