7 Wellness Products That Promise Better Sex Tonight
If sexual wellness seems like a novel concept, it's probably because in the realm of public discourse, it kind of is. Just a few years ago, we barely talked about the phantom ingredients found in most tampons. And while we've since graduated to artful vibrators, sustainable lube, and libido-enhancing supplements, the market has only blossomed because the conversation has too.
Even if it's secondary to performance, it's worth mentioning that the branding of some of these products is stylish on an unprecedented level. These are brands that want to be seen—not discreetly thrown into a drawer in your nightstand. And while we might attribute that to our aesthetics-obsessed culture, might it also represent a larger shift as sexual wellness finally sheds its old taboos?
Either way, whether you're aiming to get yourself in the mood or rethink your old essentials, these seven products get the job done—and look so pretty while doing it. Keep scrolling to shop eight of our favorite products for sexual wellness.
One of Moon Juice's original best sellers, this powder contains a potent blend of libido-boosting herbs. Maca, for example, has been linked to an increase in sexual desire, and the adaptogen shatavari is shown to support reproductive and sexual health in a variety of ways. Add a pinch to a latte or warm cup of milk and see where it takes you.
Here's a novel thought: Instead of warring against our body hair, why not treat it with TLC? That's the concept behind Fur, an oil beloved by celebrities and beauty editors alike. Smooth it onto your bikini area to soften hair, clear pores, and keep ingrowns at bay.
This water-based formula from buzzy sustainable bodycare brand Nécessaire aims to solve all the typical issues with lube—namely, by eliminating fragrance and other synthetic ingredients that can throw off pH balance (which is how yeast infections tend to percolate). Aloe vera preemptively battles any irritation, while hyaluronic acid makes for maximum glide.
Coined "the Hermès of marijuana" by The New York Times, Beboe's products are as quality-driven as they are chic. Case in point: The brand's indica vape pen was formulated to put the mind and body at ease, and nothing sets the mood like feeling the day's stresses melt away. (Psst: Studies show that cannabis can seriously enhance your sex life.)
A candle might seem like an obvious choice, but this one goes a step further: The wax actually melts into a scented massage oil, so you can set the mood and then some.
For all the other essentials, like gynecologist-approved condoms and cleansing wipes, Lola's sexual wellness kit has you covered. (Bonus: There's even a doctor-penned guidebook packed with tips on making this realm of self-care a priority.)
