British GQ November Issue

Continuing my own sexual research, I was studying the mating habits of Topanga Canyon, California, a former hippie enclave near Malibu (where Neil Young wrote After The Gold Rush and about which Jim Morrison was thought to have written "Roadhouse Blues") when I was given a bottle of Foria, a "sensual enhancement oil." According to its makers, it is "hand-crafted from the female flower of the marijuana plant - one of the oldest aphrodisiacs in the world - using modern extraction techniques for optimal potency and purity. We invite you to slow down relax deeply, and discover the pleasure within." It costs $44 for a small 10ml spray, or $88 for 30ml, and is only available for purchase in the state of California* as "medical marijuana."

Foria...for a woman's pleasure
Foria is "designed to be directly applied to the clitoris, inner and outer labia, and inside the vagina." I waited about 30 minutes and nothing was happening, so I forgot about it. But after another ten minutes, the whole area down there felt completely relaxed and warm. Nice. My vaginal lips felt heavy, then started to feel tingly, which felt trippy. It was the first time I've ever thought, "My poontang feels totally stoned."
Foria...for a man's pleasure
To test the effect Foria has on male genitalia, my "research assistant" came over for some further testing, rubbing the Cannabis oil - which is made with coconut oil - all over his manhood: meat and potatoes. It took about 45 minutes, but the first effect it had on him was that his balls felt like they were "hangin' low," followed by the tip of his penis feeling warm and tingly. "I don't know if I would call this an aphrodisiac," he said, "but this feels interesting, relaxing, like my penis and balls are on drugs."
Foria founder Mathew Gerson, whose former business was a line of Sir Richard's condoms, says, "it wouldn't be fair to call the oil an aphrodisiac, but it is a sexual enhancement. I've had more than 100 people try it out, many claiming it made them feel more sensitive and the sex more pleasurable. It's the first THC-infused lubricant. Sex is always better when you are completely relaxed. We're now testing the product to be used for men's prostate massages, with great results."
Although my Foria trip only lasted about five minutes - about three minutes longer than my last sexual encounter - it was fun. Skeptical of its effects at first,
I've come around to thinking that since it makes everything feel more sensitive
and tingly, it's the most enjoyable sex product of the year.
After it wore off, I said to my research boy, "My little lady down there has the munchies and is hungry for your cock," encouraging even more testing. Since the concoction is edible, I applied it downtown again and he went to work eating it. "OMG!" he said. "Now my tongue feels stoned." The research continues...
