Supercharge Your Sensation With Arousal Gels

Supercharge Your Sensation With Arousal Gels

Arousal gels are a great way to increase sensation and intensify your pleasure during solo play, foreplay and partnered sex. Designed for topical use on the clitoris, clitoral hood and/or vulva, they work to heighten sensitivity and amplify sensation by stimulating blood flow, arousal responses and natural lubrication.

Most arousal gels and oils use botanical ingredients such as menthol, capsaicin, cinnamon, peppermint or rosemary oil to produce a buzzing, warming and/or cooling effect which is often enhanced by friction or movement. They also come in a range of intensity levels for those who prefer stronger or milder sensations.

Products such as System JO 12 Volt and Sensuva On For Her Original have earned a reputation as a “liquid vibrator” due to the amazing, buzzing sensation they invoke.

Warming gels such as System JO Spicy, System JO Atomic as well as produce a warming effect that is great for enhancing blood flow to the clitoris which in turn increases sensitivity and sensation.

Cooling gels such as System JO Chill, System JO Arctic and Sensuva ON For Her Ice provide a thrilling, tingling effect and are particularly good for increasing touch sensitivity.

Flavoured arousal gels such as System JO Mint Chip Chill, System JO Sweet Berry Heat, Adam & Eve Clit Sensitizer Gel and Sensuva On For Her Coffee Cake are great for adding extra oral pleasure to couples play.

When selecting an arousal gel, it’s important to consider not only the kind of effect that’s right for you but also the strength of the formula as well as the base; water based gels are fine for use with all toys and condoms but aren’t suitable for use in the shower and oil based products are not compatible for use with latex condoms.

Silicone based gels should be used with caution with silicone toys as silicone on silicone has the potential to degrade the toy’s coating over time. We recommend using condoms on toys where possible and performing a patch test on toys before use; if the surface of the toy swells up or gets gummy and sticky, it’s best to discontinue use. It’s important to remember to clean the toy thoroughly with a quality toy cleaner like System JO Refresh Foaming Toy Cleaner immediately after each use.

When using an arousal gel, we strongly recommend starting out with a very small amount of gel and increasing over uses if necessary to find the perfect level of intensity for you. The sensation often isn't immediate after application; it can take up to 5 minutes to build up to the full effect. Arousal gels can last for up to 45 minutes and you can reapply when required or desired. 

It’s also important to note that arousal gels are designed for external use and while the gels can increase your natural lubrication, they are not a lubricating product in themselves. We recommend using arousal gels in conjunction with a quality water or silicone based lubricant. A warming or cooling sensation can be enjoyed internally through the use of a stimulating lubricant such as Wicked Aqua Chill or System JO H2O Warming or Cooling.
