Clitoral Desensitization

Glinteye Glinteye
Has anyone experienced, or are concerned they may be becoming desensitized from too much clitoral stimulation? Any thoughts or advice?

Speaking for Ow(wife). No, not yet. She currently prefers even more of it over vaginal. Her current favs are all clit geared items. And if using a shafted vibe, it must have ears.

She has been into her wand for over 15 yrs now. I nicknamed it her "japanese bf"
She recently got the Eden wand with a dial control. No nickname for it yet.

If you start to lose sensitivity, wait a few days before engaging in more clit play and things should return to normal.

Lvstoplay is absolutely right. If you're getting a lot of clit play every day, it can get to the point where it takes more and more to get off, if you can. But things go back to normal after a short break.

I've always had issues before even using toys so I just buy clitoral arousal gels to help me move things along.

Not a safe long term solution.

Nor is using a clit or pussy pump.

Actual non-topical medications would be a safer long term solution.

I have no issues with sensitivity and I've never really gotten into either, but care to elaborate? While I don't use the gels (and honestly didn't think they'd be very effective) I thought they were relatively safe.

Topical gels/creams when used regularly, either daily, or at least 3 days a week on average will build up in the upper layer of skin and over time will transcend to the lower layers and even the bloodstream.

A lot of these gels contain chemicals that cannot be absorbed naturally and use assistant oils like Glycerin to enter the skin. Glycerin can dry the skin out leading to pH imbalances and chaffing.

Repeated use inundates the skin, just like topical antibacterial/anti-fun gal creams/ointment, With long-term use of such items the skin may develop permanent stretch marks (striae), weaken considerably, cause bruising, some discolouration, or thin spidery blood vessels (telangiectasias).

I'm not say this will happen, but it can with any long term use of such products, most use a burn chemical that tingly feeling is usually caused by a mix of acid and capsicum oil.

So you see my concern.

TG, while you are at it, can you also talk about body absorbing lubricant.
Esp the different types, coconut oil, silicone base, water based.

Thank you ahead of time.

Hmm, each has their own side-effects. I think it best I make a separate thread for this one.

So here it is link.

There are several common ingredients to avoid such as parabens, glycerine, phthalates, among some other commonly found ingredients. Definitely, there are some ingredients to stir clear from. Since there is no definitive rule book, I've found that the best way to learn about body safety & what's safe for my own body is to be informed & not just rely on any one source, too. There's lots of info. on the internet that we can learn from about lube safety.

True. But consult your doctor if you are having difficulty.

I watch ingredients and don't use meds of any kind. I know you are a nurse, but I'm more naturalpathic versus medical.

This is all good advise, however, why not just take a break from clit play? It seems to be easy to do and free. No harm can come from abstaining for a little while.

TTG,
How about these ingredients copied off our bottle of G stim gel :
Water, Propanediol(natual humectant) Carrageenan, L-Argine HCL,Cutric Acid, Niacin,Evening Primrose Sodium Hydroxymethylglycinate .Meththol, Sodium Benzoate.

So it sounds like repeated use of this is not good ?

Actually that is a good one, i see no issue with regular or repeated use:

Propanediol is a natural humectant which means it is used to maintain moisture of the formula. Carrageenan is a powerful lubricating ingredient and there are some studies that have shown its soothing effects. L-arginine, used in this manner, is a sexual desire booster that works by increasing sensation on the areas where it is applied topically. L-arginine is converted in the body into a chemical called nitric oxide. Nitric oxide causes blood vessels to open wider for improved blood flow. L-arginine also stimulates the release of growth hormone, insulin, and other substances in the body. Niacin also increases sensation to improve pleasure during sexual activities. Menthol is a stimulating ingredient while evening primrose oil also improves sensation.

Claims are usually made that such products are completely safe but some women who have tried it say it causes side effects like skin irritation and a slight stinging sensation. This may be an indication that the user is hypersensitive to any of the ingredients in the formula.

Perform skin testing to check for hypersensitivity before using it is my best advice.

I just wanted to comment on this being a great thread. Wonderful info for all to know. As an aside, I was recommended organic coconut oil by my OBGYN friend. It seems to do well and only has one ingredient.

A good choice just watch out for (I think I've said this before about coconut oil) but since coconut oil is (obviously) an oil, it has the same problems as any other oil-based lubricant. For one, coconut oil is not compatible with latex, which means you can’t use it with traditional condoms and certain sex toys. It can also disrupt the vagina’s natural equilibrium, pH and good/bad bacteria ratio.
