We wrote this guide for customers who are using Intimacy Sex Oil with CBD for the first time. When your order arrives, you'll probably be excited to enjoy it ASAP, but take a moment to read the information below.

Condoms & Barriers? Use Non-Latex Only
Because this lubricant is oil-based and can degrade latex and poly-isoprene, we recommend choosing oil-safe barriers like polyurethane or nitrile condoms for protection from STIs and pregnancy (or lambskin for prevention of pregnancy but not STIs).
Several major condom brands offer polyurethane condoms. Just be sure they're "poly-urethane" NOT "poly-isoprene."
For convenience, we're providing the following links:
Toys & Vibrators
Sex Oil is happily compatible with silicone, glass, and other non-latex toys. Read our blog on the subject for more information.
Coconut allergies aren't as common as typical nut allergies (mostly because coconuts are really drupes, aka "stone fruit" like peaches), but make sure you or your partner aren't allergic to coconut before use.
To lubricate and moisturize, pour as much Sex Oil as you like into your palm and apply where you desire. This lubricant was formulated to be a whole-body experience; and can be used liberally on the vulva, breasts, thighs, penis, anus, or any part of the body that feels good.
Since this is an oil-based lubricant, it may soak into sheets. We recommend laying down a towel or using an extra layer to prevent staining.
Do not use in bathtubs or showers to avoid the risk of slip-and-fall injuries.
Now that we know how to use it, let’s dive into what Intimacy Sex Oil is and how the ingredients can support your sex life.
What Is Intimacy Sex Oil?
We’ll give you a spoiler: when you get down to it, intimacy sex oil is a type of lube (and then some). In addition to acting as a personal lubricant, many sex oils (like ours!) are also intended to promote intimacy by keeping things lubricated and providing pleasurable sensations and experiences that add to your time in the bedroom, whether you’re alone or with a partner.
Personal lubricants are known for their ability to improve sexual pleasure and performance. But why, how, and what do you need to look for when it comes to an intimacy sex oil?
Let’s break it down together.
The ingredients of a sex oil can vary, but one thing seems obvious: they will all be made with some form of oil. We’ll get into all the benefits, but let’s first caveat this with the main drawback to oil-based lubricants because it’s important to know: oil-based products can degrade or destroy latex condoms.
So if you rely on condoms for birth control or protection from STDs, you’ll want to stick to something water-based.
Our Intimacy Sex Oil with CBD is a bedroom must-have for any gender. It’s made from broad-spectrum CBD (more on that later) and organic MCT coconut oil. That’s only two ingredients! This means that it’s made from only plant-based and natural ingredients, too.
There are other sex oils like our Awaken Arousal Oil which are formulated with botanical infusions like hemp extract, kava root, and cinnamon to support physical arousal, while the aromatherapeutic benefits of organic essential oils take the experience to the next level.
Intimacy sex oils have many uses. For one, they’re a godsend when it comes to vaginal dryness. If you’re struggling with natural lubrication, you are not alone — we have a solution.
Dryness can cause discomfort and vaginal tears, not to mention issues with self-esteem and satisfaction. So if you’re looking for some enhancement on the lubrication front, using a sex oil is a great option.
Intimacy sex oils can also be used topically — not just on your intimate areas. Our oils can double as a massage oil, so if you’re looking for a way to take your foreplay to the next level, involving an oil that’s specifically formulated to dial up arousal and sensitivity like ours can help you and your partner connect in ways you never thought possible.
These oils are also great if sex toys are a part of your sex life, whether solo or partnered. Even if you’re turned on, the non-organic material of a sex toy may not feel as smooth and satisfying as you hope.
Intimacy sex oil can help ensure your next play session involving toys is as satisfying as possible — not to mention all of the possibilities when it comes to using intimacy sex oil to dial your next solo sesh up to 10.
CBD and Sex 101
You may have noticed that many of our oils are formulated with CBD. If you’re unfamiliar, we’re more than happy to walk you through all of the amazing benefits of CBD. And no, before you ask, CBD won’t get you high. THC is the chemical responsible for the psychoactive effects of cannabis.
The effects of CBD are nothing like a high, and these CBD products don’t contain THC. But they can still make you feel great! CBD products support physical sensitivity, so when you apply our intimacy sex oils to your already sensitive areas… you do the math.
So just imagine what happens when you incorporate Intimacy Sex Oil with CBD into every aspect of your play. In addition to giving your sexual fulfillment and satisfaction a boost, CBD products are useful for addressing a pretty wide range of issues, too.
CBD can help to soothe physical discomfort during sex. (That said, masking pain is one thing — treating it is another. Be sure to seek medical help and give your body the rest it needs if you’re recovering from even minor vaginal tearing.)
We will note that there isn’t any regulation out there when it comes to CBD products just yet. They’re not under the purview of the FDA. So we think it’s best to keep it simple and stick with products like ours that use mainly natural ingredients you recognize.
Pairing With Your Foria Favorites
Though it isn't mandatory, and it's great on its own, this lubricant was designed to work in concert with the rest of our Intimacy line.
If you choose to use our lube with Awaken Arousal Oil, apply Awaken first and allow 15 to 30 minutes for fullest absorption before using the Sex Oil — so Awaken's potent botanicals aren't diluted.
