During intimate encounters, you typically want to ensure that your partner is fully satisfied and enjoying the experience as much as you. If you're finding it difficult to perform due to a lack of stamina, desensitizer sexual health products may help. You can explore a diverse assortment of desensitizers here at CVS, make a purchase online and have your order discreetly shipped to your home.

What Is a Sexual Desensitizer?

Desensitizers are sexual health products that can reduce sensations during intercourse. Most often, the products are used by men to help boost their endurance. When applied to the penis, a desensitizer can make sensations less intense to help a man continue to have intercourse for longer without premature climax. This can help increase a man's endurance and help him fully satisfy his partner. Some desensitizers are also intended for use by men and women in the anal area. These products slightly numb the skin to help make anal penetration more comfortable.

Standalone Desensitizers

Standalone desensitizers are applied directly to the penis prior to intercourse. Most of these products contain a low dose of a topical anesthetic medication like lidocaine. Topical anesthetics help block signals to nerve endings, making the skin less sensitive. In a desensitizer, the anesthetic may delay orgasm while still allowing men to experience pleasure and eventual climax. Spray-on desensitizers are quick and easy to apply, but it is important to use caution and ensure that you only spray the formula onto the penis. Gel and liquid desensitizers allow for more controlled application and often double as lubricants to make sex more comfortable for both partners.

Condoms With Added Benefits

If you're looking for a discreet way to benefit from a desensitizer, you can try condoms created with endurance in mind. Like conventional condoms, these contraceptives fit over the penis and capture semen to prevent pregnancy and reduce the risk of contracting sexually transmitted infections (STIs). Desensitizing condoms are coated with a lubricant that contains ingredients similar to the ones in standalone desensitizers. Some men prefer desensitizer condoms because they do not add an extra step to intercourse beyond putting on a condom.

Important Considerations

Because desensitizers and desensitizer condoms typically contain an over-the-counter medication, it is a good idea to consult your medical provider before using one of these sexual health products. Topical anesthetics can pose a risk for side effects and allergic reactions. Be sure to read the directions for use included with the desensitizer to ensure best results.
