Guest Review: The Ultimate-D Delay Spray 25ml

Hello my lovely readers!

Firstly, let’s address the peach-shaped elephant in the room: I’ve re-branded. Hooray! 

I could ramble on about why I chose to do this but let’s just say that I wanted to get to the core of my blog’s aesthetic (which, apparently, is a vulva-shaped peach. Naturally). 

Secondly I am so happy today to invite Lemon Fresh back for a guest review. This time to talk about the Ultimate-D Delay Spray 25ml, provided by Planet Earth

So, not to hog too much of the spotlight, I’ll pass things over to my zesty buddy now. Enjoy!

Hello everyone and a huge thanks to Emmeline for having me back.

Today I’m going to be looking at the Ultimate-D Delay Spray 25ml, supplied by Planet Earth.

Before getting into the bulk of the review I’ll quickly go over some details about the product.

The Ultimate-D Delay Spray 25ml

This is very much a case of “exactly what it says on the tin”: A desensitising spray that helps delay orgasms in men.

The spray contains:

Isoproppyl Palmitate, Alcohol Denat, Laureth-9, Mentha Piperita (peppermint) oil, Menthol, Vanillyl Butyl Ether, Limonene.

After spending a little time on Google I can add that the ingredients above are safe unless you have an allergy to something. Menthol can also cause irritation for those with sensitive skin, so make sure you test some of this product on your lips or another area first if you know you’re prone to such issues. No one wants to discover such an irritation through genital exposure.

There are a few cautions on the packaging to keep in mind before using this product. Most seem like fairly obvious warnings: This product is not a lubricant, this product is not a contraceptive and this product is for adult males only.

Lemon Fresh may be a great guest reviewer, but he is not a photographer so special thanks to Planet Earth for this product image.

The one I was a little curious about is that this product is not condom-friendly or (as I’ve seen it described on some sites it’s advertised on) not condom safe.  At first I wasn’t entirely sure what this meant—whether it slightly reduced the effectiveness and reliability of the condom or if you risked spontaneous genital combustion from applying this product (perhaps a slightly less likely outcome).

But upon editing Emmeline let me know that this was to do with the fact that this spray has oil in it—oil being notorious for causing damage to latex and polyisoprene, and therefore not compatible with either. So, yeah, thankfully your penis won’t be the hapless victim of sex-related combustion any time soon, but this oil-based concern is still something to consider before using with your partner. On the bright side if you’re experimenting with solo play then at least you won’t need to worry about this.

Packaging isn’t something that Emmeline talks about often, but as a gamer I can attest to the fact that sometimes packaging matters. With that in mind one minor complaint I had about the packaging is that the labels with these instructions on the spray bottle were not stuck on very firmly and were actually peeling off on their own.  I don’t know if this was just the specific bottle that I received or if it’s something that will apply to all bottles but it was a little irritating. I would recommend keeping the box that the spray comes in for this reason as it has all the same information that is on the spray should you need to refer to it.

The spray itself is really easy to use. It’s just a case of spraying yourself as liberally as you want in the desired area and then waiting for it to dry before proceeding.

In my own experience I felt that it was better to just spray myself once and then spread it and massage it in a bit rather than give myself a thorough spraying and letting it all dry. Drying time can vary depending on how thickly you spray it on but with the thin application I used it usually only took a minute or two before I was ready to get going, so that’s my definite go-to recommendation.

The spray does have a bit of a chemically smell to it, but that fades very quickly and shouldn’t be an issue. Even if you dislike the smell the substance itself is very thin and liquid; it’s almost like spraying yourself with water.

Once it had all dried I noticed that my penis felt a bit smoother than usual, but it was barely noticeable and didn’t feel uncomfortable at all.

So after it was sprayed, spread and dried how does affect performance and the feeling?

Well there was definitely some noticeable desensitisation but it wasn’t severe enough to ruin the experience or even really detract from it.  I’ve tried this spray both with the Tenga Zen Stroker that I have previously reviewed and just with my hand. In both cases I lasted longer than normal, how much longer is a bit uncertain as (genius that I am) I didn’t time myself strictly I just took a quick look at the clock before and after, but it roughly took about 10 to 15 minutes longer than normal for me.

One thing I was a little worried about was the overall impact on the orgasm: How good could things feel if I was desensitising myself? Well I honestly don’t think it detracted at all, at least not to any extent that I was able to notice. Every time I’ve used this product it’s felt like a typical orgasm (which is always great when the Tenga Zen is involved, as I’ve already mentioned).

So how does it all hold up when using an excessive amount of the spray?

To test this I used four or five blasts from the spray a couple of times. Unsurprisingly this took significantly longer for the formula to dry, so much so that I eventually got fed up and just started without letting it fully dry.

I certainly noticed the desensitisation this time, though it still wasn’t harsh enough to kill all the enjoyment of masturbating. Using the spray this way only seemed to add a few more minutes to the average wank session time despite how much was used. Once again I was pleasantly surprised that, even when using this much of the spray, it didn’t have a big negative impact on the pleasure of the orgasm (except for a small amount of pain in my arm from all the extra work involved).

I would have stopped things here but Emmeline informed me that it’s an obligatory part of her process to talk about downsides too (and apparently my aching arm doesn’t count because “It’s a good workout”).

The problem here is that I didn’t really detect any downsides. So I’m going to briefly hand over to Emmeline:

Thank you my Lemony friend. Okay, so downsides can be hard to see if everything is working well for an individual, but there are a few things with this product that I can flag up. The first is, as Lemon Fresh noted, this product won’t be great if you experience skin irritation (or if your partner does).

The fact that you can’t use this with conventional condoms might be a big obstacle for some, especially if it’s your only form of contraception, and it does mean that extra research (both via Google-fu and ‘field research’) may need to be done before using this product.

While Lemon Fresh had no issue with this product being termed as ‘For Men’ I’d also question the heteronormativity of this term, but that’s the feminist in me.

And, finally, it may be a bit difficult for some individuals to get used to the difference in sensation or to take the time needed to let this product dry. It should go without saying (considering the nature of this product to prolong orgasms in general) but this is not the type of product you use during a quickie. The dry-time is certainly something to factor in and potentially make a fun activity out of, but it could be a downer if you’re generally impatient.

Aaaand that’s all from me. Peaches out!

Final Thoughts

Overall, this spray works well and delivers exactly on what it promises.

If this is something you think you would benefit from using then I highly recommend you try it. Just make sure that you have a few experimental runs with it before using it with a partner so that you can find out how to best make it work for you.

Another thing to keep in mind is to make sure that your partner fully informed about it, some of the cautionary advice on the packaging could make some people uncomfortable about the use of this product.

A big thanks, again, to Emmeline for having me and I’ll be back with more reviews very soon.
