ASPEN, Colo. — Marijuana as an aphrodisiac?
That’s the promise behind a new pot spray. It’s called “Foria” as in “euphoria” and it’s sold in perfume-like spray bottles.
Foria’s secret ingredients are no secret at all, it’s just cannabis oil and coconut oil.
“I think there’s going to be a huge demand for it once the word spreads and it’s pretty exciting. There’s a lot of great products we can infuse and that’s just yet another one,” said Shadowshot.
While the scientific evidence may not be as powerful as the marketing campaign, supporters insist those who try it will find all the proof they need in the bedroom.
“This is going to be a big surprise and I think he’ll (her husband) be surprised and I’m blushing but that’s okay,” said Mayer.
"Sceptical 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."

Like Masters Of Sex researchers Masters and Johnson, whose studies spanned from 1957 to 1992, today's sex researchers continue to probe the fuzzy void of sexuality. Recent studies have focused on sex and the brain, monogamy and infidelity and pleasure. American sex researcher Dr. Debby Herbenick, of Indiana University's Kinsey Institute, recently studied the effect of exercise on sex.
She discovered that a small percentage of women can have an exercise-induced orgasm from doing multiple sit-ups, called a "coregasm". So next time you see a woman in the gym doing a hundred sit-ups and she's moaning, she could be enjoying her work-out more than you think.
Herbernick's study of condom usage offered scientific evidence that using condoms doesn't reduce pleasure. (In a study of 1,645 men and women, men who used condoms reported similar sexual satisfaction to those who did not. The only difference the study found was between men who did and did not use lube during sex.) Currently, she is researching how to make a better female condom.
This is a great idea, because I did a little sex research of my own and tried the female condom, called the Reality condom. The FC is a small polyurethane bag-like pouch which I had to lube before insertion, then walk out of the bathroom without feeling like I was suited up for Chernobyl. The female condom is a great idea in theory, but I found myself saying, "Hold on a minute, honey, while I oil my bag."
Continuing my own sexual research, I was studying the mating habits of people in 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 (£24) for a 5ml spray, or $88 (£52) for 30ml, and is only available for purchase in the state of California as "medical marijuana".
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."
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. Sceptical 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…

Before I used Foria’s Cannabis Lube to get my vagina high for the first time, I had a lot of thoughts running through my head about what it would be like. Is it going to be a high that’s similar to smoking weed? I love smoking weed. Or will it be more of a body high, like when you eat pot brownies? Oh shit, am I going to trip balls? Maybe I shouldn’t do this on a Tuesday. I wonder if I’ll be easier to orgasm when I’m having sex if my vagina is stoned? Ooh, I wonder if my orgasms will be more powerful too. That would be awesome.
The truth is, it’s really kind of difficult to explain what it feels like to get your vagina high. But goddammit, I’m going to try.First, I’m need to highlight a couple of variables that may have impacted my experience.
Now that we’ve gotten that out of the way, let’s get down to business. Here are eight things to know about getting your vagina stoned with Foria’s Cannabis Lube.
1. It smells only slightly weedy. I was a little concerned that cannabis lube would make my vagina smell and taste like old bong water, but luckily it does not have that super stank, skunky weed smell. If anything, Foria smells mostly like nothing, with a herbaceous top note. Totally inoffensive. Because I’m thorough, I spritzed the tiniest bit in my mouth to assess the taste and was relieved to discover it was also basically unnoticeable to the palate. The first time I used Foria was with a sex partner — who was aware that my vag was getting high for the occasion — and because it takes 30 minutes to really settle in and take effect, I’d already lubed myself up by the time we got down to business. He went down on me briefly and did not report any noticeable or distracting tastes/smells beyond what’s typical for my lady flower.
2. You use it the way you would use any lube. Foria comes in one of two size bottles, both small, with a spray top so you can spritz it on and in your vagina. I found spritzing inside me to be kind of difficult, so the first time, I had the dude I was sleeping with spritz it inside for me, and when I was alone, I used my fingers. If you’re using a vibrator, you can go ahead and spritz it on their too. I recommend using both inside the vagina and on the labia and clit and all that other junk. Go to town because…
3. You won’t trip balls. I don’t know why I thought this was even a possibility. Neither myself nor my vagina saw swirly colors or talking lampshades.
4. You will get really, really wet. Well, I did at least. Obviously, some of that additional wetness is the lube itself, but because I was rationing, I really didn’t use tons. I get pretty wet all on my own anyway, especially if I’m getting down with someone and there’s lots of foreplay, but Foria seemed to make me wetter than usual. Which was fantastic. Wetter is better!
5. You’ll feel a lot more loosey goosey down there. I’m going to get to explaining how, exactly, a stoned vagina feels, but the thing that stood out to me the most during the first time I used Foria is that I just felt really relaxed down there. Like, tension free. Like my vagina was kicking back on the beach in Mexico, without a care in the world. Like my pussy had popped a quaalude and washed it down with a stiff whiskey. My vagina was kind of blessed out and down for whatever. My partner was someone I’ve slept with a few times before, we’re very much on the same page in terms of what we like to do in bed, and he’s always a fucking blast. Being even more relaxed than usual down there resulted made it so we naturally ended up doin’ some stuff that I’m usually maybe a little more uptight about, so that was cool and fun and I enjoyed myself very much thank you.
6. Your vagina will feel stoned. Just your vagina though. So, Foria works, in that it has a noticeable affect on the way your vagina feels, but doesn’t do anything to the rest of your body or the body of the person sticking their dick in you. I, Amelia, did not feel high, but my vagina did. So what does that feel like? To a certain degree, the feeling is that of an increased, concentrated awareness of that part of your body. For those of you who have or do smoke pot, the best way I can describe it is the feeling you get when you take a hit, hold it in and then exhale, and then that warm, some of tingly, vaguely lightheaded feeling washes over you — imagine that feeling, but more subtle and constant, just in and around your vag. There’s a certain heady warmth to it. When my stoned vagina was being touched/licked/penetrated/etc. there was an increased awareness of all the sensations. It feels lovely, really, but it’s not extreme, which I think is a good thing.

Women, their partners, and in general, marijuana lovers of are in luck. Foria was born to satisfy their cannabic sensual desires, thanks to the imagination of Mathew Gerson and the ‘Aphrodite Group’ collective. It is a lubricant designed to delight females of all kinds.
A Marijuana Lubricant That Gives You a 15-Minute Climax
According to Gerson’ definition, this is the “first personal lubricant with marijuana designed for female pleasure and to achieve natural, euphoric pleasure”. It comes in a small bottle, like the best perfumes, and costs less than 86 dollars. Its uses and effects are more than interesting.
The idea was conceived in California by a group of medical marijuana patients and caregivers whose main objective was to ensure that cannabis access was offered in a high-quality, safe way. Furthermore, they have the mission to empower women to access pleasure and well-being through natural therapies.
What’s in it?
The gel–which is to be applied directly inside (if you know what I mean) –contains medicinal cannabis oil (with THC and cannabinoids) from marijuana grown in California. It is complemented with coconut oil, especially designed to give a pleasant fragrance and, above all, to prevent fungal infections. Besides, “It’s delicious to eat,” says Gerson.
According to its creators, it is 100% natural and free from chemicals, additives, sugars and gluten. It is edible, vegan-friendly, and its pH is low to care for the skin and maintain the your lady part’s own healthy pH. The result? A viscous, smooth, slippery substance that will allow you to enjoy at least 15 minutes of continuous climax. Each spray contains 360 milligrams of THC, enough for 30 sessions.
It is specifically designed for women because, according to its designer, “the tissue in and around your female private parts are very sensitive and super-absorbent, both internally and externally”. As result, the product can penetrate without any barrier.
Relaxation and Pleasure without Pain
According to Gerson, the effects of the lubricant depend on the woman; especially, on how each woman responds to marijuana itself. However, he ensures that one of its main characteristics is that it is relaxing. It has been designed to promote natural lubrication, reduce pain and tension and create the necessary relaxation to fully enjoy any sensual experience.
Gerson says that the sensations it causes in women have been tested by a group of over 100 volunteers who, after trying the product, say they feel more fulfilled, have more complete intimate relationships and have achieved pleasure in the most sensitive parts of their body.
“When they told me about it, I didn’t believe it, but I decided to try it,” says one of the women who tested the product in a video released by the manufacturer, in a true TV-shopping style. “Then I started to feel a special sensation throughout my whole body; it was great.” Another woman said that she experienced pleasure for more than 15 minutes continuously, with the feeling increasing gradually.

Craving better orgasms? Or just craving orgasms, period? You’re not alone.
Pleasure is a right, not a privilege, and Matthew Gerson, formerly of Sir Richard’s Condoms, created Foria, a cannabis-infused natural lubricant, on that premise. I chatted with him about the rollout of his breakthrough product, the epidemic of anorgasmic women, and how we can begin to shift the paradigm toward pleasure. (Full disclosure, Matthew is a friend of mine.)
Stefanie Weiss: What inspired the creation of FORIA?
Matthew Gerson: Foria was inspired by a long walk on the beach. Seriously though, it was during my dawn dog walks that I began to think about the possibility of using cannabis in a way that might address the needs of 50 percent of the adult female population in the U.S.
I spent a few years running the Sir Richard’s Condom Co. and during that time had the opportunity to speak with thousands of people about their intimate lives. During that time it was brought to my attention how unbalanced the FDA has been with regards to putting out safe and effective medicines for female sexual challenges. My personal use of cannabis as a sensual enhancer led me to research its historical use as an aphrodisiac, which dates back thousands of years into Asia. This is a plant that has been identified by countless cultures for its benefits to human sexuality and our quest for heightened pleasure and wellness.
SW: Why do you think that Viagra/Cialis et al. have been approved and on the market for so many years, and nothing exists for women?
MG: One of the books I was reading when developing Foria was “What Women Really Want, The Science of Female Desire.” It takes a deep look at the sexual issues facing women in the U.S. and has a pretty critical assessment of the FDA’s handling of what appears to be a national crisis. There is a great organization that is bringing attention to the disparity and possible latent sexism at the FDA. This is a very charged and complex subject and I recommend checking them out and supporting their efforts. (Eventhescore.org)
I see sexual health and orgasm as a part of the arc of wellness that we are all seeking in our lives. This seems to be the emergent trend within modern medical circles. Historically sexuality was left out of the conversation on basic approaches to health and wellness and was something that had to be hidden from view. This compartmentalizing has created huge obstacles for us as a culture to overcome, ones that we are only now starting to recognize.

We’ve heard of pot brownies, but apparently there’s a surprising new way to ingest marijuana: vaginally. Yes, you read that right. Foria, created by the Aphrodite Group, a California group that provides medical marijuana, is a cannabis-infused sensual enhancement oil that claims to increase sexual pleasure, and even promises multiple orgasms. (The name is a play on euphoria.) And considering there are 24 FDA-approved drugs for male sexual pleasure available but none for women, we were intrigued by the news.
Marijuana has been used for centuries by ancient tribes as a medicinal aphrodisiac to increase libido. And according to the Aphrodite Group, testing has shown that women experience a variety of sensations, including feeling hot "down there," swelling of the clitoris, and tingling when using Foria.

I live in Colorado, so I understand that some people have the impulse to put pot in everything (though if people could also know what they’re doing before dabbling — looking at you Maureen Dowd — that’d be great). But even I was a little surprised to hear about the latest pot product, Foria cannabis lube. Yes, lube. Yes, as in exactly what you’re thinking of.
Thanks to the pot pleasure company, you can now get lubed up and blissed out using a special formula made from coconut oil and cannabis oil. And apparently this product really can get you pretty high — the membranes in and around your vagina are very absorbent, so the THC in the oil is pretty much guaranteed to work its way into your blood stream. But since Foria embraces the idea of cannabis as an aphrodisiac, they see this as a really good thing.
All I can say is that pot might be an aphrodisiac for some people, but in my hypothetical personal experience it mainly makes you more drawn to baked goods than boys. But hey, who knows?
If you’re looking to get in on some of this sexy marijuana lube goodness, though, you might be out of luck. Apparently the products are only offered in California to people with a physician’s recommendation. If you are one of the lucky few with a prescription for stoner lube, a full size bottle will cost you about $88. But since some of the testimonials on the website claim that the product allowed for multiple orgasms within 15 minutes, maybe that’s not such a high price to pay?
Ridiculousness aside for just a moment, it is interesting that Foria seems to be marketing the lube, in part, as a way of treating female sexual problems. Their website describes it as a ”therapeutic sensual enhancement oil designed for female pleasure.” Now, in part this might just be because it’s California, so if there isn’t a medical angle, there’s no way for a doctor to justify a prescription. But taking a less cynical route, it might be that this product actually does have therapeutic effects, which would be really cool.

There's a secret ingredient in FORIA, a lubricant designed especially for women. And if you really like marijuana, you'll be searching for the preorder button as soon as you read the next few words because this new lubricant contains cannabis and it's supposed to get you high. Like real high. Through your vagina. Fun!
The lubricant was revealed earlier this week by creator Matthew Gerson and a small bottle will run about $88. And, according to Gerson, it's worth it. The lube contains medical marijuana that is blended with MCT or coconut oil (Great for staving off yeast infections!) to create a viscous, slippery, toy-safe, and vagina-safe product.
According to Nerve, the effects of the lubricant will vary for each person (the substance hasn't been standardized) so how individuals respond to the oil will likely have something to do with how they respond to marijuana, but Gerson points out that one of the main effects of the lube will be a de-stressing feeling. That sounds awesome! Who doesn't want to de-stress?
