My clitoris and I are BFFs. She is good to me and I am good to her. We have had a lot of quality time over the nearly thirty years we’ve been together. Though we had a rocky patch for a while that I’d like to touch on before I get to the review itself.
Our relationship has had a few stages, but overall it can be summed up by Pre-Baby and Post-Baby. Pre-Baby my clit was so sensitive that a stiff breeze, the right pair of pants, or occasionally speed bumps could set her and I off. Not complaining, but there were some drawbacks to being that sensitive. Unexpected orgasms can cramp your style and I would often hit not-fun-anymore levels of over stimulation very quickly.
Post-Baby/Vaginal birth, things changed. No where near as sensitive, and as I would go for long periods without spending quality time with her, she would randomly go on strike. Yeah, stimulation felt awesome but she’d bow out right before orgasm. There may have been a lot of, albeit one sided, cursing for a while. (Though let’s be honest – if anyone was going to have a clitoris capable of cussing – it would be me.)
So while we worked on getting our relationship back on track, I became an arousal gel junkie. I was already a big fan with a decent collection of different offerings, but often they were too intense or the chemicals would cause problems post use. (Itching, irritation, yeast infections..eek) So I leaped at the chance to give the Blossom Organics Arousal Gel a shot when my beloved Babeland offered it to me.
First application was non-sexual as I didn’t want to waste a precious masturbation period if my reaction was adverse. I massaged three drops on and for the first 3-5 seconds I was worried. The initial sensation was just slightly too intense for me, though not burning or painful. Right as I was approaching uncomfortable the intensity lowered and I became a Very Happy Crista.
With manual stimulation, use of sex toys or just the gel alone I did not have a tingling/throbbing/hot/cold sensation from the Blossom Organics Arousal Gel like I have had with a number of others on the market. For me the sensations with Blossom are the slight warmth of being incredibly aroused and that my awareness of my clitoris is heightened. She is there and she is loving every moment again, just like old times.
My orgasms did not come faster nor were they more intense with the addition of the arousal gel, but the path to orgasm was a lot more fun. My warm-up period was gone so I went straight to enjoying the pleasurable sensations of whatever I was doing. That alone is enough for me to give a big pink stamp of approval, but an increased period of pleasure was not the best part for me.
The best part? A minute or two after application I was dripping wet. Wet like I haven’t been since I was a teenager. Pregnancy, breastfeeding and a few medications I take have wreaked havoc on my ability to self lubricate. This isn’t a huge problem as my lube snobbery has lead to a large assortment of quality options, but oh my gawd, being wet was amazing. That first application, when I realized I was sloppy wet again, brought tears of joy to my eyes.
After about fifteen minutes the sensations began to dissipate and twenty minutes later they were completely gone. I’ve used my newly beloved arousal gel daily with no post-use side effects beyond looking for excuses for another application. .75 oz may not sound like a great deal of product but I have barely put a dent in my bottle.
- Size: .75 oz in a visually pleasing plastic bottle with an easy to use push top for dispensing. I find the packaging to be lovely, but it’s up to you if you’d leave it out on your bedside table or not.
- Base: Water & Latex-Friendly
- Ingredients: Organic aloe barbadensis leaf extract, glycerin, hydroxyethylcellulose, sorbitol, arginine, niacin (vitamin B3), organic plant oils of rosa canina (rose hip) & oenothera biennis (evening primrose), ethylhexylglycerin, organic mentha piperita (peppermint) essential oil, organic extracts of paeonia albiflora (peony) root & passiflora incarnata flower. (note: For those of you with herpes, arginine has been linked to increased outbreaks. Product does contain glycerin which has been linked to UTIs and yeast infections. I am very prone to both UTIs and yeast infections, but as this is mainly used externally I have not had a problem. Still, I’m in “The More You Know” camp.)
