Ultimate-D, delay cream and spray

It’s my second review of the “Ultimate” products, and this time I’ll going to be looking at Ultimate-D, two products designed to desensitise the penis and prolong sex, for those looking to really extend the throes of passion with their lover.

The Ultimate-D comes in two different varieties depending on your preferences: there’s a cream and a spray, and we’ll look at each in turn. Surprisingly the products are quite different, especially when it comes down to the ingredients, rather than just being essentially the same thing but with different modes of delivery.

The cream comes in two different sizes; there’s a 15ml pot and a 6ml pot, both of which are quite tiny so you’ll want to use it sparingly. The cream itself is a thick white substance with a greasy feel to it, and it spreads quite well so you really don’t need a lot. The only ingredient listed on the packaging is Lidocaine, which is a local anaesthetic, so you’d expect it to be quite good at doing its job.
To use the cream you simply apply a small amount to the most sensitive parts of the penis, namely the glans and the frenulum, and massage it in until it disappears, which luckily doesn’t take long as it’s readily absorbed. The packaging recommends not having sex for 10 minutes after application, but that the cream should start to take effect after 3-5 minutes. 10 minutes does sound a little long, especially if you’re in the middle of spontaneous sex and have to stop and wait, so you’d better have figured out something else to do with your partner during that time, lest the mood be killed.
After waiting 5 minutes I did notice a mild reduction in sensitivity when I touched my penis, but it was barely perceptible for the most part. During subsequent masturbation the effects of the cream didn’t appear to cause any reduction in the feelings of sexual pleasure coming directly from the surface of the penis, which I took to be a good sign, but in a way it also did seem to feel slightly less sensitive, though a part of me wondered if I may have been imagining it. Even though sexual acts felt no less pleasurable I did have some inkling that I may be able to last for a slightly extended period, though by no means anything dramatic, so it did appear to work to some minor extent.
The spray comes in a 25ml bottle so you get a much larger quantity than with the cream. It has a rather fresh smell about it, like a citrusy household cleaner. It doesn’t appear to have any local anaesthetic in it like the cream does, and relies much more on natural ingredients such as peppermint and menthol.
To use the spray you simply point it at the head of the penis, squirt enough to get good coverage, then wait for it to evaporate and you’re ready to go. Like the cream the spray does have a slightly greasy feel to it, so if you accidentally spray too much it can help to rub it in. Once the spray makes contact with the penis I found that it felt a little warm, though only briefly and not uncomfortably so. The only slight discomfort I had was around the opening to the urethra which exhibited a brief sting, so I’d advise making sure that you don’t get any of the spray in there.
In my experience the spray performed better than the cream and reduced the feeling of sensation by a greater degree, though I wouldn’t really describe it as being significant enough to have had a partially numbing effect. Like with the cream it didn’t seem to lessen the sensation of sexual pleasure which was good, though there was a greater awareness of the surface of the penis being less responsive to touch, and I felt more confident on this occasion that the product would allow the user to prolong their sex sessions.
I can’t speak to how well either would perform for sufferers of premature ejaculation, but in terms of extending the duration of sex under regular circumstances the spray would definitely get my vote. It’s quicker to apply, requires less waiting time before engaging in sexual activity, and it’s more cost effective in terms of the quantity you get for what you pay.

Ultimate Lube

Recently the folks at Planet Earth Wholesale asked if I’d be interested in reviewing some sexual enhancements products from the “Ultimate” range, including this stimulating lubricant. Normally I’m not a huge fan of reviewing lubes because there’s only so many different ways to describe how slippery something is before it all starts sounding the same, but these products seemed interesting enough for me to make an exception. 

The Ultimate Lube is a condom-safe water-based lubricant, described on the packaging as a product designed to “boost sexual potency and male prowess” which is certainly quite a lofty claim to be made for a lube, and not one which I’m sure can be definitively put to the test, but it certainly should be fun investigating.

The lube is quite a thick, clear, gel with a strong aroma of menthol, very reminiscent of Wrigley’s Airwaves chewing gum. When you couple this scent with the blue packaging it immediately gives the impression that it’s going to be a cooling lubricant, the idea of which rather appeals to me. I’ve never actually tried a cooling lubricant before, but ever since one day in childhood when I spent an awful lot of time in the shower thoroughly washing myself with Lynx Glacier Water & Deep Sea Enriched Mint shower gel, I’ve been a fan of a refreshingly chill sensation around the genitalia.
The directions for use suggest applying a “small amount” of the lubricant and massaging it into the “desired area”, namely the penis, and so I duly did as such. Shortly after application you begin to experience a cool tingly sensation in the mucus membranes with make up the head of the penis and inner lining of the foreskin, and this is actually quite pleasant, and indeed refreshing. At this point the natural inclination is to begin masturbating, and the combination of the physical stimulation with the cool sensations of the lube produce a very pleasing result. Unfortunately as time progresses the pleasant feeling begins to wane, instead being replaced by one of discomfort as the sensation from the lube continues to intensify, moving from a cooling sensation to more of a burning one, and eventually in my experience something quite unpleasant. I left the lube on for as long as I could stand, hoping it might eventually die down, but in the end I was forced to wash it off, which thankfully eliminated the discomfort entirely and left no after-effects. I spoke to someone from the company about my experience, and apparently the lube is intended to have an effect which causes blood to be drawn to the surface of the penis, in order to increase arousal and improve erection quality. I can’t say that I noticed that particular result amidst my discomfort, but perhaps my experience was typical, and I was merely extra sensitive to the effects. I can only speak to my own experience, and it seems perfectly feasible that others may react less strongly to it than I.
Setting aside the physical sensations of the product for a moment, there’s also the question of how it performs as a lube. It’s quite thick so it does adhere nicely to the skin, or indeed any toys which you may wish to use with it, and it starts off feeling quite slippery. My primary complaint about how it performs as a lube is that it doesn’t last long at all. Even when using quantities far more liberal than those suggested by the packaging, after a short while the lube becomes gummy and tacky, causing skin to stick to skin, and increasing friction, rather than giving a smooth gliding action. Were I a fan of how it worked in other regards, then I’d probably apply only a small amount of this first, then couple it with one of my favourite lubes, rather than using it by itself.
Normally I would include a section on how it performs with insertable toys, but you’ll forgive me if I decline to put into my rectum something which caused irritation to my penis, as the former is far less easy to rinse than the latter, and the outcome seems almost predictable anyway.
In summation I’d have to say that it’s not a lube that I’d give my recommendation to. While not everyone will experience the same bad reaction as I did, the fact is that it’s just not really a great lube to begin with. Were it a fantastically slippery product which lasted for ages then maybe I’d suggest taking a chance and trying it, but right now essentially what you’re looking at is a lube which is tacky, which won’t last long, which needs to be mixed with something else in order to make it usable, and which has as least some chance of causing you discomfort / irritation.
If anyone else has tried this then I’d love to hear your experiences in the comments below, whether they be similar or completely different.
