Given that Gen Z is currrently in a sex recession, it’s no secret that libido is down – nationwide. Between hustle culture and the literal state of the world, it makes sense our sex drives need a little boost. Thankfully, the sexual wellness industry is adapting to the times and its latest, proves to be a hype-worthy development.

If you were around at the top of 2023, you witnessed the rise of sex serums, or gels, that act as lube and stimulate sensitivity for arousal. Well, it appears serums and its lube-like makeup are taking the back burner for arousal oils in 2024.

Arousal oils are an under-discussed yet highly beneficial element to your sex life for many reasons. For starters, arousal oils are solely used externally, usually on the clit and labia lips to help you get – and stay wet. Foria, a sexual wellness brand catering to women’s pleasure, is the leading brand in the arousal oil space with both CBD and non-CBD options, referred to as botanicals, for those not able to access CBD.

Its in-house sexual wellness expert, Kiana Reeves, says: “Arousal oils are typically formulated to get blood flow moving in the genital direction. As a byproduct of boosted blood flow, many of these products can increase your capacity to pleasure.”

Lubricants on the other hand, are “not designed to support the natural arousal process. They are only intended to add lubrication.” As a result, arousal oils are truly a game changer for those struggling with libido or “getting their head in the [kinky] game.”

The only downside to arousal oils, is that they are not safe for silicone sex toys as oils can break down silicone products. For newbies to sex toys, oils and silicone never mix so opt for glass sex toys when using arousal oils, or of course, your lover. But, similar to glass sex toys unintentionally making for the perfect home decor, many arousal oils can double as massage oils for added relaxation benefits.

To help you elevate your sexual wellness routine, we’ve compiled our favorite arousal oils for your boudoir.
