I Tried a CBD Lube. Here's What it Did for My Sex Life.
When we say that CBD can be used in the bedroom, we don’t just mean for sleep. (Wink, wink.)
So we asked a customer who'd shared some awesome feedback about her experience with Foria’s Awaken—the "first CBD sex oil," according to the brand—to share her story with the rest of you. Here’s what she had to say!
My relationship with sex is like many women, complicated. One day, my sex drive is through the roof and the next, it's the last thing I want to think about doing. Not to mention, it wasn't until about two years into having sex that I even experienced my first O—from a partner. (I know; very sad.) Between constant hormonal changes and stresses that come with everyday life, sometimes I need to enlist a little extra...assistance...to get in the mood. And unfortunately, due to my very sensitive flora, using lube is typically out of the question. (Many contain ingredients that cause lovely symptoms, such as irritation and infections, for me).
Enter Foria's Awaken Arousal Oil. Even though I work in the CBD industry and know of all the glorious benefits this plant has to offer (especially when it comes to sex!), it was actually my boyfriend who introduced me to Foria. For those of you who don't know, Awaken is a CBD "massage oil" (a.k.a. lube) that helps "enhance tactical sensations" and pleasure, while eliminating pain and discomfort that can come with sex. It's also made with super gentle ingredients; according to Foria, that means coconut oil (a natural antifungal) and 9 plant-based aphrodisiacs!
At first, I was a bit skeptical. "I doubt I'll even feel a difference," I thought to my cynical self. And boy...was. I. wrong. Within seconds of spraying Awaken on, I started feeling warm and tingly sensations, and that was before my boyfriend even touched me. Once the actual fun started, it was truly unlike any experience I've ever had. Every touch and sensation was taken up about 50 notches...seriously everything was just amplified. The Big O happened much more quickly than usual and lasted much longer. Needless to say, I was more than satisfied with the results. I was also happy with the next day results: no irritation, pain, or infection.
Not only has Awaken helped my sex drive, but it's also allowed me to connect with my partner physically even when my mind was fighting to get in the way. There were times my lack of sex drive caused immense stress in my life (and in my relationship) and I'm so happy to have discovered a (natural and healthy!) solution. — Anonymous
