Like a Keurig coffeemaker, the Pulse (“a whole new way to warm your world”) only takes “Pulse pods,” tiny plastic containers of lube that run $25 for a set of six. Right now, the company is only selling silicone-based lube, a no-no for people who use silicone toys, though water-based lube is in the works for the spring. Each pod contains nine squirts of lube, meaning each squirt costs about 46 cents. Can you put a price on warm, cozy genitals, though? Can you?

This may be one of the least sexy sex-related statements I've ever seen.

The critical information that is missing - how long does it take to warm up? Do I leave it on all the time or have to plan in advance? I need answers people.

Couldn't you just put your regular product of choice in a bowl of hot water to warm it?

How am I going to explain a bowl of hot water on my nightstand? This contraption is clearly needed.

Are you bringing people to your bedroom who DON'T want warm genitals?

But what will it do about your partner's cold hands? The temp the lube would need to be to overcome the thermal mass of the hand applying it would probably just scald the skin where it touched without significantly changing the overall temperature of the hand.  This looks like an area where we could disrupt the status quo.

Oh, I agree that the need for heated genitals is near-universal. But I don't get it on with everyone I bring into my bedroom.

This reminded me of an ebay sale a few years ago for a 50 gallon drum of personal lubricant.
The comments section was hilarious, and went on and on with comments about how to use
it, or why you need 50 gallons, using it on a slip and slide, etc.
 I looked didn't find it, but here is a gallon of elbow grease cream personal lubricant.

  That's the one!

" I knew getting back in the "dating game" would be a challenge after being out of it for over 5 years.
When I was released from Joliet, I had to learn all the new things "the dating crowd" was trying."....
  "The product only took a week to arrive, and got to my apartment just in time for my first real "date" since the gas station incident."

  "As UPS discretely unloaded my 55 gallon drum, the driver accidentally spilled it into my driveway. Any amount of cars can now fit into the garage."
 
 Looks like they may have changed the format a bit, I don't see as many funny reviews and see only verified purchaser reviews.

I see, you want the Mk II model. It has a hot air hand warmer and lube dispenser.

Or if you wait for the Mk III you can do without a partner entirely.

A true Mustachian scoffs at the idea of paying more for 'warming lube' of any kind, and practices badassity by simply rubbing fresh cut habenero peppers on his or her genitals.

With a potential market of billions of people... who wouldn't want to push as much product as possible?

Certainly a good FIRE side-gig; very low cost of product, but with all the free time and huge market there is a large potential for profit.

OK, you gave me an opening to slip my story into.
My wife had finished cleaning up our Thai peppers for grinding, just as I came from the shower wiping myself off. She decided to get a little frisky down there, and yes hot peppers
are hot down there. Not something I would recommend though.
