    A water-based formula means you can use it practically anytime, but it's not compatible with condoms (latex or not).

    Promising reviews: "Without getting too personal, this is a product that you are either going to love, or hate. I am a woman, and let's just say that this turns the intensity up, WAY up. A-l-m-o-s-t too much, which is perfect for me, but probably not for everyone." —G W

    3. A clitoral balm with a warming effect that'll elevate your pleasure and sensitivity for an out-of-this-world sensation.

    Bijoux Indiscrets

    This balm boasts ginseng and arginine as ingredients and is compatible with latex condoms and sex toys.

    Promising review: "To say the clitoral balm provides a 'warming sensation in a matter of seconds' is no joke! I put a small amount on my **** at first to see how quickly I'd feel it warming and how long it lasted. It feels unmistakably warm but not at all too much or unpleasant. I found it felt warm long enough that I was definitely turned on looking forward to trying other things with the new sensation. I did wish it lasted a bit longer for me, I don't think I got near 40 minutes without reapplying, but I still enjoyed using the balm. Would buy again!" —Tiffany

    7. A stimulating gel by Unbound enriched with peppermint oil that'll give your favorite sensitive areas a bit of a ~jolt~.

    @unboundbabes /, Negesti Kaudo / BuzzFeed

    The Jolt Gel is an arousal serum enriched with organic extracts and peppermint oil to help increase blood flow and deliver a warm, tingly sensation. I've tested it, and it does indeed work on nipples and clits, slightly warming the area without being overwhelming. The only way I can make sense of it, is it feels like someone ate a lifesaver and blew on your cooch (but not in a bad way!). That being said, it's fabulous and definitely amplifies your orgasm as well as the sensation overall.

    Promising reviews: "Ahhh shit 🥵🥵🥵🥵 I was surprised by the tingling sensation but in the best way. Jolt keeps making us have quickies but goodies haha we can’t help it. Amazing!!!!" —Ashley S.

    "Going into this, I thought it would very obviously tingle and I thought it was going to be intense. However this stuff changes the game, not at all what I thought—it’s gentle and gradual (you don’t need much) but boy oh boy the sensitivity is unreal, don’t forget to put a towel down. The first time I tried this I didn’t need the vibe, I was hittin' it old school. Great to use just for yourself or during sex too for extra pleasure to get you over the line. Highly recommend!" —Bianca

    Get it from Unbound or Revolve for $22 or in packets from Unbound at $4/each.

    8. A silicone-based lube by Trojan to help intensify sensations for more arousing play with cooling and warming sensations.

    Purple bottle of Trojan Arouses & Intensifies

    This stimulating lubricant is all about getting you hot during foreplay and intercourse.

    Promising reviews: "Warm and stimulating. Works every time! Need I say more? ;)" —Cathleen Arhelger

    "It has no flavor FYI. But feels amazing. Me and my partner like it. It does have a warm sensation but nothing to wild like you're on fire. A bit pricey but worth it." —Omar pastora

    Get it from Amazon for $19.60.

    9. Or a 2-in-1 arousal gel and lubricant by Trojan boasting a motion-activated formula that keeps things slick for both parties and delivers a tingly, warming sensation.

    Red bottle of Trojan Arouses & Releases lubricant

    Meanwhile, this lube is all about helping you get to the BIG FINISH by heightening those sensations with each moment.

    Promising reviews: "My product came and me and my fiancé bought it for our wedding night :). We couldn't help ourselves, so we opened it and tried some on him and a little on me, and a few minutes later into some heavy romance it kicked in, and I got super excited and you know what happened next LOL. We love and we will be buying more for our wedding night because this bottle won't last. Try it, you may like it." —Lisa

    "Love this product! Its intensity notches up with the more motion you apply and it works very well for stimulation/arousal, if you’re looking for something that’ll give you a hefty tingle almost like a mild burning heat." —Chartman

    Get it from Amazon for $14.97.

    10. A pleasure serum that's 99% pure CBD and designed with science in mind, so that every part of the clitoris is stimulated.

    Vella Bioscience

    I actually had the opportunity to try this product, and TBH it was my first foray into using CBD during masturbation...but it definitely won't be my last. I will say this product is definitely all about the science, so when it says three pumps, it means no more and no less. The serum is topical and only for external use, so clitoris and labia only. It's supposed to set in around 20 minutes, so I literally tried to be productive while I had a timer running, but the more time I spent waiting, the more it seemed like my vagina had grown a mind of its own. I decided to forgo ol' faithful and try out a couple new products, but I only was able to test one because I was having such a great time. 🥴 The orgasm(s) I had with this serum was so great, that I actually said "I love Air Pulse technology" aloud, which may be the most embarrassing thing I've ever done alone?

    The facts: This serum has 320 mg of CBD, a vegan formula, and doesn't really have a smell, like it just smells like a lotion. It's a bit thick — not like lube at all — and creates kind of a mess, but it wasn't hard to clean up at all (toy cleaner + soap and water). So far, it's only been tested on cis-women / AFAB people, so if you weren't born with a vagina...I would not recommend it. It's also compatible with latex.

    Get it from Nordstrom for $65.

    11. A clitoral balm boasting an earthy scent and warming effect for increased sensation and sensitivity during partnered or solo play.

    Ghosting remedy, Horny Jar and Sexting Balm clitoral balms
    Bijoux Indiscrets

    These three balms have a coconut and almond oil base for a silky smooth texture that helps deliver a warming effect. I love the names of each of there...Horny Jar is right up my alley. Because that's what I am. A jar of horny.

    Get it from Bijoux Indiscrets for $11.95 (available in spiced ginger, sandalwood and vetiver scents).

    12. An arousal cream that'll help stimulate libido by increasing blood flow for a more sensitive clit and firmer penile erection.

    White tube of Horny Honey arousal cream

    Promising reviews: "So I am 36, going through early menopause! My sex drive is almost nonexistent. So I tried this and believe me when I tell you, it most definitely got things going down there!!! Don't wait try this, I promise you will not regret it!!!!" —Talishia Crosby

    "This stuff is definitely worth a try. It feels amazing for both us, and it's easy to apply. The tube is a bit small, but you really don't need much." —Paul

    Get it from Amazon for $8.75.

    13. An all-natural arousal oil by Foria created with a blend of CBD and botanicals to help enhance sensation and pleasure.

    @foriawellness /, Foria

    I have a friend who swears on this arousal oil, and TBH I live vicariously through her sex life, so I believe it. You can apply as much as a full dropper of the coconut oil-based oil to your inner labia and/or vagina, and of course, your clitoris. This oil is also oral-friendly and safe to ingest...y'know, just in case.

    Promising reviews: "I was worried this would throw off my pH or feel weird to my partner because of the peppermint. Nope! And im pretty sensitive so I was surprised. If you're even thinking about it, just do it! Excellent!" —DSQ

    "I have a very low libido. Highly abnormal for my age but there isn't any real reason for it. I got this beautiful oil as a Fab Fit Fun add-on and it's LIFE CHANGING! Absolutely does EXACTLY what it says/claims. I genuinely expected to be disappointed but in the very least it's moisturizing so it couldn't hurt right? Absolutely friggin' right and I highly recommend it for EVERYONE!! Also, it's not something to boost already low libido or to assist with low desire disorder but it WILL make time with your lover even BETTER on so many levels!" —Wifeynd

    Get it from Revolve for $48.

    14. An oil-based, hemp-infused massage oil by Coconu that'll help you get in the mood for ~play~ whether you use it topically for extra stimulation or internally as a lubricant.

    Promising reviews: "I think this is my very first Amazon review and, wow! This is the absolutely best lube I have tried, and I think I have tried them all! I saw this brand Coconu all over Instagram and was excited to see they’re finally on Amazon for free shipping. The good stuff — it is SO moisturizing both externally and internally, absolutely perfect for every type of massage and intimate action. This is a serious game changer, it’s unlike any other of its kind on the market and you can see from the product photos that it’s completely natural!" —Marie

    "What a great product. It's a perfect consistency and really makes a difference. I've tried other brands, but I'm so impressed with this one. It's gentle and it's so comforting to know I'm using safe and natural ingredients. So glad to have found this." —RR

    Get it from Amazon for $34.99.

    15. A 3-in-1 arousal serum that'll help stimulate, lubricate and plump your vulva and labia with a warming sensation that elevates your *me time*.

    Rosebud Woman

    Promising review: "On first application Arouse feels just like an oil, but within about a minute a tingling and warming sensation occurs, like champagne bubbles of sensation. Its amazing for an increased sexual experience...but a little goes a long way! Only a few drops, not even a full pump works for me! Definitely awesome for a more elevated intimate encounter." —Mantha311

    Get it from Nordstrom for $75.

    16. An enhanced lube designed to stimulate your G-spot for increased sensitivity and size for more explosive orgasms.

    Model holding foil packet of O.M.G-Spot Stim Serum

    This lube is created with peppermint oil and L-arginine, to help make sure you feel everything, but it's also vegan and condom-friendly. 😉

    Promising reviews: "This magic serum is so fun! I actually don't use it every time because it gets me so activated deep inside that it distracts me from what I need to be doing sometimes. I'd just keep trying to sneak off to masturbate more! Very different effect from the clit jolt gel. The OMG you put a little inside yourself and hmmmm I hope you love it as much as I do! So amazing. Super-power clinching cumming." —BB

    "I’ve never been a big fan of things like this but I love this! This really intensifies everything and sends you that extra mile." —Ashley B.

    Get it from Unbound for $4/each.

    17. An orgasm enhancer by Bijoux Indiscrets specially designed for your clit to help prepare your body and increase sensitivity for explosive results.

    This scented balm is designed to help get you there with just a few drops.

    Get it from Bijoux Indiscrets for $17.95.

    18. A stimulating anal lubricant created with an extra-thick, water-based formula that'll last way after the arousal stage.


    The Jelle Heat and Chill formulas are both latex-friendly and enhanced with olive leaf extract for an always slippery, never sticky experience. So you already know you want/enjoy anal, now the question is: do you want cooling tingles or a warming sensation?

    Get it from Rodeoh for $18.99 (available in Heat and Chill).

    19. A stimulating gel by SKYN that's both condom- and toy-compatible for a real good, feel good time whether partnered or solo.

    Black and pink box of SKYN Excite stimulating gel

    This gel is designed to help intensify your climax and deliver cooling, tingly, and warming sensations to the user.

    Promising reviews: "This is the absolute top sensations gel that I have ever used. Amazing!" —TheCardens1108

    Get it from Amazon for $5.99.

    20. A KY lubricant duo designed to deliver a warming sensation for penises and a tingling sensation for vulvas, whether you use it as lube or a massage oil.

    Blue bottle of Yours and pink bottle of Mine

    Even though gender isn't real, you can still have a good time with this lube-slash-massage oil by KY. The Yours (for penises) is gylcerin-based and the Mine (for vulvas) is water-based, meaning you'll need to reapply when necessary, but it'll last! Just, make sure not to use this product with condoms.

    Promising reviews: "Talk about heating things up once the two come together. Quite a nice feeling and definitely gets you where you need to be." —Margie M

    "This pink lotion is light, nonsticky, and makes me feel incredible! You’ll feel pleasurable heat when it’s applied. I give it or recommend it to every friend." —Folly girl

    Get it from Amazon for $14.97.

    Always remember to do a spot test beforehand, to see if there's a reaction. If there isn't? Well...LMK when you feel it.
