Something that my partner and I had never tried before was masturbation cream/lubricant, but when we discovered a bottle of Stroke Cream was on its way from Meo for a review, he was more than willing to give it a go. He would usually just reach for whichever lubricant was closest to him, which is almost always water-based, but he complains that it doesn’t always last long enough or it isn’t thick enough. When I did a little bit of research into this product prior to its arrival, I noted that it was a hybrid concoction, which means it has a small amount of silicone for that extra lasting power and slickness that he’s been craving. Read on to find out whether he enjoyed the Stroke Cream or jump to the quick review if you just want the facts.
The package arrived quickly and discreetly as advertised, with the labelling for the product itself being very simple and inoffensive. It was sealed with plastic for full assurance that it wasn’t tampered with prior to use, which we liked. It operates and dispenses via a pump nozzle, which is our personal preference for lubricants as it ensures that we get the perfect amount of product each time. A pump also avoids unnecessary spills, waste and mess. This particular bottle has a stopper in front of the nozzle, which has to be removed each time you wish to use the product, therefore reducing any remaining risks of leaking and waste.
The Stroke Lubricant appears in a faint off-white appearance at first, but this dissipates to completely clear once the product has been worked into the skin. It starts with a similar consistency to gel, before later turning into a slicker, unnoticeably textured lubricant. It’s not extremely thick, but it has more cushion to it than most of the water-based products he has tried. He likes the consistency and says that there is nothing off-putting about the texture. He hates creams and lubricants that leave his skin feeling sticky, tacky and greasy, but this product leaves his skin feeling the complete opposite.
He said that it really reduced the friction during masturbation and it felt particularly great to use something thicker around sensitive areas like his foreskin and glans. He is now convinced that he should have been using a hybrid lubricant all this time, as it apparently creates a much better, smoother glide and it lasts much longer than any water-based can. He estimates forty minutes of use without needing to reapply, which is great during sessions of edging and teasing. It didn’t cause any skin irritations, itching or uncomfortable sensations which he was pleased about, as he’s almost as sensitive to these products as I am.
It doesn’t stain bed sheets, towels or other fabrics and is much easier to remove than some of the other hybrid mixes we have tried. A little bit of a scrub under running water seems to be enough to get the residue removed. It doesn’t have any off-putting or even noticeable odours, which is a huge plus for my partner who will flat-out refuse to use a product if it smells chemical or artificial. It doesn’t taste great though, so I wouldn’t recommend giving your partner oral sex if they have just used this product.
Overall, I think his first experience with masturbation cream was successful. He found Stroke to be an enjoyable product and he was pleased with pretty much everything about it. I asked him for any criticisms or things he’d change and for once, he had nothing to say. This is a product that he would definitely use again and after this positive experiment, I’m sure he will be trying other similar lubricants in the near future.
