I have seen commercials lately about creams that can intensify the female orgasm. Do they work? Are they safe?
–Looking for Intensity
I love those commercials about the product that increases pleasure for both partners. My favorite is actually the one in which the woman cannot speak—her hair is a mess—she is breathing hard—and her male partner has to do most of the talking. I love it for a couple of reasons. One, it is nice to see any sort of positive sex message in the media. And two, it is even nicer that the attention is at least equally focused on the woman’s pleasure. (Maybe we will even see a same sex couple in one of these commercials soon? I mean the media knows that all sex is not heterosexual, right?)
But, I digress… back to your question.
Do they work?
I would start by saying that every person is different. The same thing that may give that woman on TV a “train-whistle blowing, sky rocketing” orgasm may have no effect on another woman.
Most of the creams that claim to intensify female orgasm have common ingredients. They often contain a combination of the active ingredient l-arginine and menthol or niacin. L-arginine is an amino acid that can increase blood flow to the clitoris. So increased blood flow to this bundle of nerves and tissue in the clitoris could indeed cause increased sensation. Menthol can cause a tingling sensation when applied to the clitoris—especially if you blow on it. And niacin can also produce a topical sensation.
There are also some herbal based creams that also claim to intensify female orgasm. These creams have ingredients like: Borage Seed Oil, Evening Primrose Oil, Coleus Extract, Vitamin C and Vitamin E.
One factor I can see that may effect whether a cream will work or not is correct application. Most of the directions for use indicate that they need to be applied topically underneath the hood of the clitoris. So getting it in the correct place seems important.
But as to whether a particular cream will work for you and intensify your orgasm is really not a question I can answer for you. I would advise you to do a search online for intensifying orgasm creams for female orgasms and get a number of hits on types, kinds, brands and how-to’s. There is a plethora of products available which range in price from $10 to $50. And then, this is the really fun part, experiment to find the right one for you. Even if the creams do not work to intensify your sensation—finding the right place to apply it and rubbing it on could really work to increase arousal.
Are they safe?
In doing a little research to better answer your question, I have not found any information on adverse side effects to using these types of female orgasm intensifying creams. The most common thing I found was that they can cause a burning or tingling sensation that may be irritating. But hey, one person’s irritating could be another’s stimulation. So again, it depends on the person.
As with anything, use common sense. Check the ingredients on the label to make sure you are not allergic to anything. Test it out on another area of skin just to see if it causes any irritation or allergic reaction. Once you try it on your clitoris, if it doesn’t feel good, wash it off.
Orgasm Note: There are many things that can intensify an orgasm for a woman. One of the main factors in having an orgasm is knowing how an orgasm happens. Other things that can lead to more intense orgasm for women are postponing the orgasm, clitoral stimulation during penetration, and strengthening the pelvic floor muscles with Kegel exercises.
