Rocket Balm is a novelty item designed to be rubbed on the penis to help stimulate him and heighten his pleasure. It comes in a tin that resembles cuticle cream. Rocket Balm is an oil-based balm with a delightful, peppermint smell, not that a nice clean body needs help to smell good, but it’s nice to have an opportunity to jazz up the way you or your partner smells.
The video above demostrates how to use the balm with the help of the “Big Purple Monster” dildo. The product can be quite cold when you first take it out for use because it comes in a tin, so you will need to press firmly with your fingers to warm up the balm and continue moving your fingers around to get the balm out of it’s container. You may rub the balm wherever you or your partner likes on the penis (including the balls). You should rub Rocket Balm in until it absorbs into the penis and it will leave a slight tingling sensation meant to stimulate.
I enlisted the help of a guest reviewer to try Rocket Balm out because my “Big Purple Monster” can’t tell me its thoughts on the product. What did he think? His first response is that it smells quite nice, however the product is not ideal for hand jobs because of the effort required to get the balm out of the tin; there’s not really enough you can get onto your hands to keep the motion slick. He felt the minty tingling sensation but found it to be really unpleasant. The experience with such a sensation could be different from person to person so you may find that you or your partner likes it; this reviewer did not. Also the reviewer’s partner found the balm to be incredibly uncomfortable (a bit of the tingling sensation rubbed off of the penis onto his partner).
Another thing to keep in mind about this product is it is NOT latex friendly. It says as much on the back of the packaging and all the ingredients are oil based. You cannot use a condom while using the product. Rocket Balm is a balm and is not meant to be used as any sort of lubricant, either for manual stimulation or for penetrative sex. It is only meant to be rubbed on for its tingling sensation. Rocket Balm also comes with a list of ten pleasure tips which are really basic and you probably shouldn’t bother.
So Rocket Balm is a novelty product. It could be fun but our testers didn’t particularly like it. You can’t use it with condoms or for manual sex. It smells nice and some people may like the tingle, but my guest reviewer won’t be using it again, except for cuticle cream. My reviewers were terribly confused when they noted the stuff has great ratings at Babeland.com and other reputable sex stores, so your experience may vary.
