The La Bocca Della Verita stroker was less than a success in our household, which was a disappointment for Mr Peaches and I, given its compellingly realistic design. But what about this toy’s accompanying lubricant?
‘Accompanying’ might be the wrong word; this isn’t a lubricant that comes with the stroker but, rather, one that you can buy to use alongside it. To this end it has been crafted with a specific purpose in mind, and that’s to replicate the texture of saliva.
Naturally, this means that this isn’t your average water-based lubricant, but is it any good? Let’s find out.
The La Bocca Della Verita Sweet Lotion
The La Bocca Della Verita Sweet Lotion is a stringy, bubbly compilation of water-based goodness. You may notice that my description of this lubricant is similar to another product I reviewed before, but there are a few subtle differences between this and Motsu’s other lubricant (which I also think highly of).
The first difference would be that the La Bocca Della Verita Sweet Lotion is designed to be as saliva-like as possible. This means it’s thinner than its goopy counterpart and has been given much more stringy capabilities.
As you can imagine, this is both a good thing and a bad thing.
Thinner or not, there’s something lovely about the slimy, viscous qualities of this lubricant that just can’t be replicated with typical water-based lubes. It’s the kind of product that makes me want to put down my Sheets of San Francisco, slather my entire body with lubricant and then just rub my entire body in a decadent indulgence of the sense.
Not sure if that’s just me but I’m hoping you can at least see the appeal in this.
This makes the La Bocca Della Verita Sweet Lotion great for erotic wrestling, full body massages, and other slimy, sensual experiences.
As a water-based lubricant this product is compatible with pretty much all adult products. In this instance it’s free from parabens, has no fragrance, and is practically flavour-free. These traits make it ideal for this sort of play—and for additional features such as wands and paddles (oh, when this is used with a silicone paddle. Owch!)
As a lubricant for a stroker this product works very well too. It warms well when placed against the body meaning that in the confines of a stroker it becomes quite tangibly like a warm mouth, even if not necessarily as saliva-like as it hopes.
Well, I mean, it’s not like my saliva—which has never been as stringy nor persistent as this lubricant, but it’s not so different as to break immersion if you’re going for a slimy, saliva-esque sensation. In most cases it will meet your needs for this and tends to last wonderfully long because of its slithery, slimy composure.
Despite this lubricant being a thinner counterpart to Motsu’s other lubricant, it is still ticker and much more glossy than most water-based lubricants, which means that it makes a brilliant buffer for powerful sex toys, and is even suitable for anal use.
As most of you know, I have ridiculously sensitive skin, which gets unhappy easily with lubricants but the La Bocca Della Verita Sweet Lotion has not caused me any irritation during my many testing session with it, so it earns the Emmeline stamp of approval at the very least.
All of these have been clear pros so far, but I did say that the stringy nature of this lubricant has its share of cons too, and I’d be remiss if I didn’t mention them.
The biggest weakness of this lubricant is (as you might imagine) its biggest strength too, and that would be its persistent stringiness.
We’ve all seen that one .gif of a pizza with cheese so stringy and malleable that it leaves a distinct tail of googey, creamy goodness as you go to pull a slice away from its piazza brethren, and chances are we’ve all coveted a pizza of that kind at some point.
But, most of the time the reality of a stringy pizza is far less glamorous. The cheese clings for too long and ends up slipping off the pizza, leaving you with nothing but tomato sauce and a sense of betrayal. Even if this full tragedy doesn’t occur there is usually some mess involved and that’s rarely what is intended.
This can so easily happen with the La Bocca Della Verita Sweet Lotion, especially if all you want is a fit-for-purpose water-based lubricant to get you through a quick, impulsive fuck. If this is your specific desire then you may find that grappling with the stringy qualities of this lubricant, as it refuses to separate from its bottle and tries to suck itself back in can be incredibly awkward.
It has, in fact, betrayed me fully once—as I sexily tried to slather some out onto my hand only to see it swoop quite unceremoniously back in to the bottle, denying me a moment of grace. Needless to say, laughter ensued (though, thankfully, it was a moment of mutual amusement).
As for other downsides, the ingredients of this lubricant are frustratingly difficult to locate online, which is a pretty big deterrent for anyone who values knowing what they’re in for prior to purchase. Transparency is an important part of adult products and, although this lubricant is physically crystal clear, the details behind its composition are a bit vaguer.
As a final side note this lubricant has a little manga comic on its side. I don’t know what it says but it’s absolutely adorable.
Overall I like this lubricant and feel like it’s just as suited for slippery adventures and goopy stroker encounters as its thicker counterpart.
Its stringy nature does make it a bit of a handful, but this isn’t necessarily unacceptable, or even undesirable. It’s simply something to be prepared for and to factor in to your fun.
I highly recommend this lubricant if you’re a fan of making a mess, or want to experiment with longer sessions and different types of lubricant. There’s a whole world of sensations out there and playing with some of them can open some glorious doors.
It’s not something for everyone but, for those who do see the appeal of a slimy lubricant, this is a very good one to select.
People who like slimy sensations.
People who like stringy products.
People who want to experience a body-safe alternative to sploshing.
Do Not Recommend to:
