Masque Yourself

I recently stumbled upon a new product that has me a little confused and more than a little annoyed. Masque was created to help, well, mask the flavor of semen. While Debby has previously written about a flavored body sugar that can be used during oral sex, I feel like Masque is created less in a fun way to be used where ever and more in a way that boasts improving your sex skills.

One of the tag lines is “Expect flowers tomorrow”. One of the descriptions also claims that Masque will “take the intimacy between you and your partner to the next level” – that’s a pretty powerful little gel strip! The gel strip supposedly masks the flavors of semen for up to 15 minutes after you put it in your mouth, and comes in three flavors (strawberry, chocolate, and watermelon), all of which have a bit of a menthol taste. For some people, I can see this being a beneficial product – especially if they are hesitant to engage in oral sex. However, I’m not so on board with the heteronormative ideas that this product seems to enforce as well as the idea that all that is stopping you from the most amazing blow job of your life is a little dissolvable strip. If the product does appeal to you, they do sell Masque in packs of 3 for $12. I do want to mention that all of the flavors of Masque contain glycerin which some people do not do well with (some women find it makes them more prone to yeast infections).
