I have reviewed a couple of arousal products in the past and I have liked them. Remember Blossom Organics Pure Pleasure Arousal Gel and Intimate Organics Intense Clit Stimulating Gel? Today I’m going to review two arousal products made by System JO, the System JO Mild Clitoral Gel and the System JO Wild Clitoral Gel.
System JO Mild Clitoral Gel contains the following ingredients:
Cyclopentasiloxane, Cyclotetrasiloxane, Dimethiconol, Dimethicone, Peppermint (Menthe Piperita)
System JO Wild Clitoral Gel formulas contains the following ingredients:
Cyclopentasiloxane, Cyclotetrasiloxane, Dimethiconol, Dimethicone, Peppermint (Menthe Piperita), Olearesins Capsicum.
As you can see, these formulas are almost identical with the addition of Olearesins Capsicum in the System JO Wild Clitoral Gel formula. Olearesins Capsicum is the same ingredient used in pepper spray, so you’d think it would pack a punch. However, I’m sure there is a huge difference in the amount used in pepper spray compared to the amount used in the System JO Wild Clitoral Gel.
Cyclopentasiloxane is classified as expected to be toxic or harmful by the Environment Canada Domestic Substance List. Cyclotetrasiloxane has been shown to be a possible human endocrine disruptor, is a possible human reproductive toxin, and there is limited evidence of developmental toxicity. Considering the amount of System JO Clitoral Gel one would use over a period of time, it is not likely to cause harm. However, it is good to be aware of the possible effects of these ingredients. Some people don’t care and some would rather not take the risk.
System JO Clitoral Gel is silicone-based, which could be unfortunate depending on how you want to use it. I would hesitate to use it with silicone sex toys. Though unlikely based on the small amount of clitoral gel you would probably use, the silicone in the System JO Clitoral Gel could interact with the silicone of the sex toy causing it to become tacky. You’re safe if you plan on using it with fingers, during sex, or with glass, metal, plastic, TPR, TPE, etc. sex toys. You can find sex toys made of all these materials at EdenFantasys.
I find no scent with either the System JO Mild Clitoral Gel or the System JO Wild Clitoral Gel, nor any strong taste. The clitoral gel is thick and silky smooth to the touch. The good thing about the System JO Clitoral Gel being thick is that it sits well on my clit and doesn’t drip or spread all over the place. It also stays put on my finger until I get it on my clit. However, as it is silicone-based it tends to stick to my finger too and is a bit harder to wash off than a water-based product. On the positive side, it makes the back of my hand nice and soft if I wipe it there when I’m too lazy to get up and wash right away.
The packaging of both System JO Mild and Wild Clitoral Gels is simple. The clitoral gel comes in a small plastic 10cc (10 ml) tube with a pointy end that needs to be cut off before you can squeeze out the clitoral gel. The tube comes inside a small cardboard envelope that can be recycled after opening. This packaging is not discreet as it says, “clitoral gel” in big letters on the front in two places. The back has directions in tiny print in four languages. There is nothing exciting about this packaging but there doesn’t need to be. The excitement should come from the product.
Unfortunately, it really doesn’t. I don’t find much effect from the System JO Mild Clitoral Gel at all. After applying System JO Wild Clitoral Gel to my clit, I have a very slight reaction. The directions say to apply a small amount of the gel and I have done this. I have also tried applying a significant amount of the gel, which doesn’t seem to help much. I don’t think I have a clit of steel as other arousal products have worked well for me. I really expected something more. In fact, I was worried the System Jo Wild Clitoral Gel might be too much for my clit but it wasn’t even close. I felt a very light sensation that disappeared quite quickly. It was slightly tingly but really didn’t go anywhere, it just dissipated rather than intensifying or lasting as other products have done. According to the directions, the sensation should kick in within 3-5 minutes and last up to 45 minutes. My experience has not come close to that at all. I haven’t noticed quicker or more intense orgasms using this clitoral gel. Very disappointing. What amazes me is that System JO has a Light Clitoral Gel formula out. Something lighter than Mild? I can’t imagine that working for anyone.
System JO Clitoral Gel Pros:
• Thick consistency
• No discernible scent
System JO Clitoral Gel Cons:
• Not strong enough for me
• Silicone based
• Stays on fingers
• Ingredients may have toxicity issues
