Beginner's guide to stimulating gels

Stimulating gels are known to be sexual enhancers. But these products are not designed to create arousal from scratch. It only increases sensation, sexual excitement and production of natural lubrication. This means that you still need to have foreplay and masturbation to get yourself into the mood.

Each stimulating gel can provide slightly distinct sensations. Some of them may also last for a short period of time. Thus, it is important to experiment with various gels to know which one will suit your body and libido. For you to understand more about stimulating gels, here is an ultimate guide for beginners.

Defining stimulating gels

Stimulating gels or arousal gels are lubricants with an added ingredient to enhance stimulation. They are formulated to increase the blood flow in the genital and make it more sensitive to touch.

Additionally, the effect of most arousal gels is to create a warm or cool sensation in the erogenous parts of the body. By applying this special type of lube, you will be aroused quickly and achieve orgasms easily. This is perfect for people who find it hard to get aroused or reach the peak of climax.

Common ingredients that are added to stimulating gels

Menthol and Peppermint: For cooling effect

Most cooling gels are stimulating because they contain ingredients such as peppermint, menthol or arginine. When these ingredients are applied on your skin, it can be extra sensitive. It also gives a slight tingling sensation.

To know whether your stimulating gel has a cooling effect, just check its ingredient list. You can easily recognise these additives by their names like menthyl, methyl, menthane, menthyl lactate, mentha pipertita, mint.

Chillies, Cinnamon, Honey, Ginseng: For warming effect

Warming gels can cause a buzzing sensation when applied to your erogenous zones. One of the most common ingredients added to give a warming effect is Capsaicin. This is also known as zanthoxylum bungeanum or niacin. This is the substance that makes chilli extra hot. Other ingredients that are used include cinnamon, ginseng, honey and arginine.

Tips in using arousal gels

  • Before using any stimulating lube, always read instructions and ingredient list of the product. There are products that are intended for external use only.
  • Choose a stimulating gel that contains natural ingredients like hemp seed oil. You should avoid products with alcohol, petroleum, silicone and parabens.
  • If you have allergies or hypersensitivity to certain ingredients like menthol, honey, ginseng etc., test the product first on the other parts of your body. You can apply a small amount of the arousal gel on your elbow and wait for about 15 minutes. If you don’t notice any allergic reaction like itching or redness, then you can safely apply it on the erogenous parts of your body.
  • To experience the best effect, apply the stimulating gel to your sweet spots like nipples, inner thighs and clitoris.
  • When shopping for an arousal gel, always keep in mind what sensations you want to achieve or expect from the product. For example, if you choose a stimulating gel with menthol on it, then expect that it will give you a cooling effect.
  • For first timers, it is best to start with water-based stimulants. They are beginner-friendly and can be used for a wide variety of purposes. Aside from that, they are gentle on the skin.
