Would you try arousal oil with CBD? Awaken by Foria is a 100% plant-based arousal oil that helps to enhance sensation and pleasure, so we recruited five friends to give their reviews…
First, what is Awaken?
Awaken is a 100% plant-based, sustainably-sourced CBD-infused arousal oil, made with natural and organic ingredients. You spray it on your fingers or directly onto yourself; and it feels light and silky. It can help enhance your natural lubrication (and, in turn, lessen dryness and discomfort); increase blood flow to the genital area and make you feel relaxed; and intensify touch and lead to deeper, easier orgasms. (Compelling, right?) FYI, it’s not for use with latex condoms.
We invited five friends to try Foria’s Awaken, and here’s what they had to say:
Cameron, single: “It’s hard to get into a solo sexy headspace when you have a roommate hanging out in the next room (plus, street noise and work stress), but last night, I turned on my noise machine and got to it. Awaken put me into a relaxed headspace, and then I had one of the deepest orgasms in months (years?). And that has continued as I’ve used it. I’m a big proponent of high-quality sex toys, and this was right up my alley.”
Chloe, married for 11 years: “We’ve been together for a long time, and this was our first time experimenting with something like this. Touches were intensified; I felt them more and reacted more to them. It really does what it says! Since we’ve been together for so long now, it felt good to mix things up, and this is a really easy thing to add to the mix.”
Sasha, single: “Awaken was a welcome alternative to lube because it felt ‘natural’ versus sticky. Lube feels surgical and makes me want to shower afterward because I want it off and out of my body, but Awaken has no residue or messiness. I was also excited by the warm, soothing sensation. I used it by myself and now want to try it with a partner. Intercourse can sometimes feel painful for me, and I think this might make a big difference.”
Penny, married for 8 years: “To be honest, I was a little nervous to try CBD arousal oil because I didn’t know what to expect. But I really, really loved it. You spray it and wait 10 to 15 minutes, which felt like foreplay. With two little kids and a busy job, I’m often not in the mood, but this made me feel sexy and ready to go. I can take a while to orgasm — or find it hard to get all the way there — but I felt primed for it with this oil; and afterward, I felt warm and glowy for longer. I was surprised that it had such a big effect. Sex feels fun and exciting again. I’ve been recommending it to my friends.”
Esme, in a relationship: “I love to experiment with random potions and have been known to bring home special teas, honeys, chocolates… so, when I told my boyfriend that I wanted to try an ‘arousal oil,’ he was not surprised. There were questions every day to the tune of, ‘Is it here yet? Did it arrive?’ When we opened it, I was taken with the scent — like a low-key Thin Mint Girl Scout cookie. We both loved that it’s vegan and edible (the taste is subtle, like the smell). It felt smooth and warm and good. The pretty bottle now lives on my nightstand.”
I’m really into the goal of finding sexual pleasure that feels good to you. Personally, when I was younger, I was often focused on my partner instead of myself (and concentrating on what I was “supposed” to do/say/feel), and it feels freeing and refreshing to have a product that’s all about enhancing your own pleasure. I’ve been using Awaken, and for me, it really makes a huge difference. It feels so, so good, and I’m so happy to be partnered with them.
