Tingling Fire

Not a great product for genital stimulation as the stimulant can cause intense burning, and ruin your fun. As an alternative this could be fun as a nipple gel.
Could be used as a nipple gel.
Horrible burning sensation, dried out fast requiring reapplication.

Best use for this? Well, it for sure isn't great for genital stimulation, unless of course you have no nerve endings, or enjoy the burning feeling of, well, I don't know what - but it hurt. To be fair, since I certainly would never use this below the waist again due to an after sex burning I got, I would say you could get away with using it on your nipples.

The gel is mint, so that accounts for some of the so cool it's hot sensation, and I would for sure say the horrific genitalia burning came from the glycerin. I was able to use it as a clitoral gel, in VERY VERY low amounts, but the concern was so high it outweighed the fun factor. When we first used this product my husband got some on the tip of his penis and he was so uncomfortable he refused to go anywhere near it without a condom.

Some people have said the taste was awful, but J didn't mind it so much. He says there are worse tastes out there and that this is tolerable. We ended up using just a 1/2 pea sized amount on the clit, but I was still so uncomfortable we just put the stuff in the bag with all the nipple toys.

Texture / Consistency / Thickness / Viscosity

It reminded me of aloe vera, looks wise. Since it is a gel it does leave you a bit sticky, and if you don't wind up sticky you get to feel that dried out feeling, you will most likely want to shower afterward. The Arousal Gel does stay in place, and while it is thick, it is easily thinned by rubbing it between two fingers. A little of this gel goes a long way.

You will not be able to pour it out, but since it is a gel, it may slide out and make a mess if you attempt to turn the bottle upside down to test my theory, so you have been warned.

Taste / Aroma

The Arousal Gel is a very pungent mint flavoring. You can smell it as soon as you open the bottle, so use it with a window open or anyone who enters your play area within a few hours of using this may ask questions. The smell actually reminded me of the spearmint essential oils I put in my daughter's vaporizer when she gets sick. It is very strong and minty, like a gum though, not peppermint. I don't care for the taste, but J didn't seem to mind it too much, he said he'd use it for added flavor just for fun if it was all we had.


Unfortunately for the amount of sensation this product offers, it doesn't stay wet for long; meaning you have to reapply the stuff and get more sensation. The tingling, or in my case intense burning lasted FAR longer than the product itself. I had to take a shower immediately after, and while it all washed off, the burning was still there. It took about an hour and a half for the vaginal burning to end.

I do think this has a potential to be a nipple gel, but I would not use it on the clit or vaginally.
Follow-up commentary
I stand by original review. This gel burns and I would never recommend it to anyone unless you plan only to use it as a nipple gel.

    Have you tried durex tingling lube? Or do you not link any tinglers?
  • J's Alley
    I haven't, I am actually not a fan of Durex. I must say I am a bit of a brand snob, but that is mostly because I am huge into body safe and watching what chemicals hit my girly bits. I haven't found too many cooling gels I like at all, mostly because they just don't work the way they claim they will.

    I guess some women just don't need products like this. I've found some to be way too intense for my ladyparts. Thanks for the review!
