Mood Setters for the Body at Walgreens

Keeping your sex life new and exciting is important for the health of your relationship. When couples fall into set routines during foreplay and intercourse, experiences can become less passionate, leading to feelings of dissatisfaction that can put a strain on both partners. While it can be easy to fall into a routine during intimate moments, breaking out of a rut can also be easy with the help of various mood setting products.

What are Pheromones?

Scent has an amazing impact upon the entire body. For centuries, people have used fragrances as aphrodisiacs, substances that heighten feelings of arousal. Some scientists believe that certain chemicals can help to stimulate feelings of sexual desire through scent even if their odors cannot be picked out by the human senses. These chemicals are known as pheromones. Though there is still some debate on the effectiveness of pheromones for promoting arousal, some scientists believe that these natural chemicals produced by the human body can be sensed by something in the nose called the vomeronasal organ or VNO. The pheromones detected by the VNO may promote the release of sexual hormones, which can make a person more attractive to the opposite sex. More science is needed in order to understand the effects of pheromones on humans.

Pheromones for Sexual Enhancement

While more research on pheromones is needed, many people report positive experiences using mood setters that contain pheromones in the bedroom. These products typically combine pheromones with scents traditionally used as aphrodisiacs to help put people in the mood for lovemaking. Typically, the products are applied directly to the skin, often in areas that are likely to be kissed during foreplay.

Flavored Body Products for New Experiences

Mood setting products can be used to stimulate other senses beyond the sense of smell. Many couples enjoy adding pleasing taste sensations to foreplay and intercourse. You can find edible body paints that are playfully applied to a partner and then licked or kissed away by the other partner. There are also discreet spray and liquid products that can be applied to a part of the body and left in place for the other partner to discover during foreplay. Flavored products may make oral intercourse more pleasant for the giving partner. Some of these products contain natural mint oils to enhance circulation to the receiving partner's genitals in order to heighten arousal.

Personal Hygiene Solutions

Some mood setters for the bedroom are actually designed to eliminate problems that can put a damper on intimate moments. Specifically, these products help to eliminate unpleasant odors in the private areas of men and women. Called personal deodorants, the products may be sprayed or rolled onto the skin. Like all deodorants, these products contain ingredients that help to discourage the growth of odor-causing bacteria. In addition, they leave behind pleasing scents that can mask unpleasant odors. While body odors in the genital area are natural and usually no cause for concern, be sure to see a doctor about any new body odors that are particularly foul or that are accompanied by other symptoms like discharge or itching. These could be signs of an infection.
