After we posted on Family Circle's Facebook page that we were looking for readers to try out a romance kit, my email inbox didn't stop dinging for the next hour...plus. So many readers responded! We selected several moms from across the country and asked them to await the arrival of the Bedroom Chemist—a subscription service that delivers a discreet box of intimacy-enhancing products specially curated for, well, a good time. Every six weeks you get a bundle. No one knows what's in the box—not the mailman, not your kids and not you—until you open it. We asked testers to try the products out and tell us what happened. Here, two testers share their stories.
Tester #1: "This Was One of the Most Romantically Fun-Filled Nights We've Had in a While." With a house full of kids—and all their various activities—there's not too much time for romance. My husband and I made a decision that we were going to really make this past Valentine’s Day special. Our older daughter was in charge of taking her two younger sisters and her daughter to the movies. I made a nice romantic dinner for two with candles, wine and chocolate-covered strawberries. My husband even helped with the cooking!
After we enjoyed our dinner and having the house all to ourselves, we decided to try the kit. I lit the candle and left it on the nightstand for a bit to let the wax melt. This was our first time experimenting with a candle and it was so much fun! We massaged each other with some of the warm wax, which made our skin so smooth and soft. It also had a wonderful fragrance and made the bedroom smell really good.
It was also our first time using a vibrator, which was fun and interesting. We would probably try it again. We did not need to use any of the lube and with all the fun we were having, we forgot we had the sexy scratch-off cards. This was one of the most romantically fun-filled nights we've had in a while. Can’t wait until the next date night—we will definitely be using our kit again.
Tester #2: "I Would Recommend It to Anyone Just for Something Different." The biggest challenge that my husband and I have to intimacy is timing. We've been married 22 years and have two teenagers. I never would have thought that finding time to make love would be so hard once the kids got bigger.
I loved the idea of the romance kit just to make us make the time to be together. The kit came in the mail on a Thursday. I told my husband to reserve one hour on Friday for me. We eagerly anticipated the next morning. What happened? I got called in to work, so scratch that plan. It took a few days, but we finally got to try out the items.
I was excited about the candle. I love a massage. The problem with the candle is that it took a really long time to melt...Like, we got tired of waiting so we never used it. But it still sits on the nightstand for another day with better planning. The lubricant was the best of any we've ever used! But I'm guessing my husband applied too much of the "sensation-enhancing" balm—he couldn't tell how many drops were coming out—because it was like I was on fire. The little vibrator was really cute and I liked the feel of it. But it just didn't have enough power for us. Even though we didn't love everything, all in all it was a great time and I would recommend it to anyone just for fun—and something different.
