Frequently Asked Questions and Answers about female sexual and orgasm enhancement creams:
New female sex stimulants. It has been established that female sexual response is heightened when blood flows into the genital tissues, particularly the clitoris and vaginal areas. This blood flow is under the control of nitric oxide which turns on an enzyme that relaxes the muscles of the blood vessels, allowing increased blood flow into the genitals. L-Arginine is a stimulant used by the human body to produce nitric oxide. New female sex stimulants have been developed using L-Arginine, which work with a woman's body, stimulating blood flow to the clitoris and vagina. This creates powerful sensations during sex. Using these sex stimulants, orgasms occur more easily, quickly and naturally with much greater intensity than before, without any adverse side effects.
How do sexual enhancement creams for women work? The cream is applied to the woman's genital area, specifically the underside of the clitoral hood, allowing the active ingredients to directly stimulate the tissue surface. Once applied, the cream improves blood flow and dilation of the blood vessels around the clitoris, greatly enhancing sensitivity and arousal. Although response time varies with each individual woman and with the specific product chosen, the effects tend to develop more rapidly with sexual stimulation through touching, rubbing, and licking in the clitoral area.
Are the effects noticeable immediately? Yes, most good quality creams immediately increase sensations and sexual responsiveness in the clitoris-vagina area. Not only do these work right away, but with continued use, a woman’s responses should become even more intense.
I used to have a strong sex drive and much more sensitivity, but over the years this has diminished. What's going on? Would a female enhancement cream help?
Women naturally undergo many hormonal, physical and even attitudinal changes during their lifetimes that can affect sexual response. Good overall healthy living and a concerted effort to reduce stress can be helpful, but adding sexual enhancement creams to the sexual routine will provide a significant impact to any woman. Users of the Vigorelle brand of female orgasm enhancement cream report excellent restoration of youthful sexual intensity, and experiences that are new and exceptionally conducive to orgasm.
Are there any side effects with these products?
With high-quality products, the answer is no. You should check to see that the cream you're choosing is 100% all natural with no propylene glycol or methyl paraben substances. Quality creams are safe and natural, and work through direct application to the skin. Since they are not pills or powders that must be ingested, there's no incidence of gastrointestinal upset. On the other hand, it is always wise to sample products like this with a small dosage before using it on a larger scale. If no irritations develop during the test, you should be good to use the product as directed.
Penis Englarment: The active component in most of these pills is often Yohimbine, which comes from the African Yohimbe tree. Yohimbe has been the subject of several studies with laboratory animals. It is an alkaloid which is claimed to be both an aphrodisiac and a general sexual tonic boosting sex drive, potency and stamina. In rats, Yohimbe was found to boost the sex drive, hence its reputation for being an aphrodisiac. In humans, Yohimbe can raise blood pressure and increase the heart rate. It can also assist with blood circulation. Because of its effect on blood circulation, it is likely that Yohimbe could also have an effect on the erectile function of the penis, resulting in harder, and therefore larger, erections. Because these formulations can boost blood flow to the penis, an increasing number of men are using pills in combination with a natural penis enlargement program. Men who have tried combining the two say the increased blood flow to the penis benefits the penile massage techniques and that size gains are achieved more quickly. Men should be aware that Yohimbe formulations are prohibited in a number of countries outside the United States.
Leaving penis enlargement pills aside, researchers say that the best way to improve the size and performance of the penis is to maintain a healthy diet and watch what is taken into the body. One of the worst things men can do is smoke. Smoking can actually shrink the penis and its effects on health in general are well documented. Excess intake of alcohol can also have a detrimental effect. Apart from impotence (brewers droop), alcohol can also cause a general weight increase. Weight can have a very real effect on the size of the penis as excess body fat can cause more of the penis to remain hidden “inside” the body. In very obese men, penis size is often reduced dramatically. Maintaining a trim physique - and a fit penis - can be achieved through a sensible diet and dietary intake should also include the following supplements to ensure a healthy penis and reproductive system.
Zinc - Bananas are a good source of zinc and it can also be taken as a supplement. In young men, zinc aids genital growth and it also helps produce healthy sperm in all men. Ensure you follow the recommended dosage if taking a supplement.
Vitamin E - Needed to ensure a healthy blood circulatory system. Ensure you follow the recommended dosage if taking a supplement.
Saw Palmetto - Especially helpful for older men as it aids in keeping the prostate functioning properly. Ensure you follow the recommended dosage if taking a supplement.
