I wasn’t really sure what to expect from Sex Butter when I agreed to test it out for Passion Time. I had a look at the product page which told me that it is a natural product intended to moisturise, increase pleasure & provide lubrication for women during sexual activity. According to other feedback some women found it provided relief from painful sex and increased the number of their orgasms as well as made them more intense! Yes please, sign me up.
Oh and in case that wasn’t enough, men should experience “wonderful sensation during foreplay and intercourse, quicker recovery time, sensations even after the experience” too. I haven’t tested out this theory because men currently don’t have access to this vagina.
In reality I found Sex Butter disappointing. It smells like After Eight mint chocolates, looks like vanilla ice cream & almost melts upon contact with the skin. It is safe to use with sex toys and condoms, as well as being edible which means it can be used during oral sex – I did try a little bit and it tasted minty at first but left me with this bitter after-taste in my mouth which was horrible & frankly made me feel a little bit sick.
Pictures of this product are misleading – you’re lead to think you’re going to receive a pot that is fully filled with the product. That is not the case at all, only about a quarter of the allocated space is actually filled. See that white plastic bit there? That’s it. 0.5 ounces or 14 grams to be exact, which is very little indeed.
The small size isn’t an issue though, the website tells you that you can get around 20-40 applications out of one pot. The product can be applied when needed with no limitations but I still think you could easily get around 20 uses out of it.
The pot is fairly discreet though, it would fit in nicely amongst any face creams and other cosmetic products and no one would be suspicious of it. If you removed the sticker of course, if discretion is important to you.
The sensations Sex Butter created were not pleasurable for me in the slightest. Not only did it not provide any lubrication, it made my vulva feel uncomfortably numb. It felt all tingly but not in a good way, it was more like pins and needles or little bugs crawling all over me.
Not only that, it felt incredibly greasy – almost like I was spreading actual, edible butter between my legs. Some of the ingredients used are oily (shea, cocoa, jojoba) which is understandable but doesn’t make it any better. The more I applied the greasier it got which made cleaning up a nightmare.
I had an issue when trying to wash this off because the smell still lingered on me even after using intimate wipes and having a shower to get rid of it. The greasy feeling stayed with me for quite a while too. It just felt like I couldn’t wash it off properly for ages, I was left with this oily residue which made me feel so uncomfortable. So whilst Sex Butter claims not to be sticky, I’d probably take sticky over greasy.
I must admit that I have my doubts about whether or not this really is as natural and organic as it claims to be – it can be used for so many different things, it really does seem too good to be true. But maybe I’m just being sceptical because it didn’t work for me.
I’ve used a couple of different ‘sexual enhancers’ before, all considerably cheaper than Sex Butter which had a better overall effect. They probably weren’t as organic as this but they didn’t feel as greasy and were much easier to wash off.
At £35 a pot? No. I just don’t think it’s worth it and I would have been very disappointed had I purchased it myself. I guess it could work for other people but I just didn’t see what the fuss was about and it probably won’t get used again.
Thank you, Passion Time, for providing me with this product in exchange for my review.
