Some short while ago, as I pondered designing tentacle toys with multiple different grades of silicone to create a more authentic hentai tentacle-ravishment feel, a dear friend and altogether lovely woman pointed out that a truly authentic hentai experience inevitably includes tentacle slime. It’s not genuine tentacle ravishment without slime.
So of course I immediately set to work experimenting with various edible lubes, food coloring, and glow-in-the-dark pigments looking for the perfect tentacle slime to accompany the tentacles.
Early experiments were modestly successful. I started out with a base of nuru massage lube, a pinch of powdered food coloring, and a bit of non-toxic glow-in-the-dark pigment:
This wasn’t quite the color I wanted, but it did have something like the correct consistency, certainly, for an authentic tentacle-ravishment experience:
Further experiments got closer to the mark, with a better color and excellent glow:
Sadly, nuru massage lube goes bad very quickly after it’s prepared; you can’t really keep it. So I tried again with a non-toxic lube with a more stable base:
Not too bad, all things considered. Non-toxic, body-safe, and suitably slimy for that true-to-life tentacle experience.
Alas, it’s also incredibly fussy to make. I’d considered making a powder that people can mix at home when they want their tentacles with tentacle slime, but the lube itself interferes with the food coloring powder; you can’t mix them together or the coloring just clumps up. So it needs to be mixed in two steps, with two different sets of powder (the coloring and glow in the dark part, then the powdered lube), and it’s more faffing than I think most people will want to put up with.
So as much as I like this idea, this is one of those experiments going into the “not really workable” bin.
