Unlike other anal sprays or creams that can numb the sphincter and lead to tearing, this herbal gel causes no anesthetic effects. The anal sphincter becomes relaxed and therefore penetration becomes more comfortable. Intimate Earth Adventure's unique formula contains a certified organic extract blend with the natural potency of clove, goji berry, aloe, and lemongrass. Intimate Earth natural anal relaxing gel does not contain the synthetic compound benzocaine. Adventure works quickly and is easy to apply.
