K-Y® Brand INTENSE™

The first and only female arousal gel from the #1 doctor-recommended brand

K-Y® Brand INTENSE™ is different than any K-Y® Brand product. It’s not a personal lubricant—it is a female arousal gel scientifically shown to enhance female pleasure, arousal and satisfaction during intimacy. In fact, 75% of women in consumer studies experienced heightened arousal, sexual pleasure and sensitivity…where it counts most. The patent-pending formula behind K-Y® Brand INTENSE™ is designed to bring women a whole new level of sexual satisfaction, ultimately enhancing the intimate experience for the couple, which is what K-Y® Brand is all about.

This uncomplicated to use gel is a clitoral stimulator with a minty scent. Just a drop is needed from the pump dispenser which allows for easy, non-messy application. While not in use, the velour pouch is the perfect discrete storage idea.

The gel is hormone and paraben-free and allergy tested, meaning it’s great for all women. Unfortunately, there are only approximately 20 uses per bottle, and at a price point of $24.99 for .34 FL OZ bottle, there’s not much value for mommas that get it on all the time.
Not exactly warming or cooling, K-Y® Brand INTENSE™ makes your skin tingle. This is a product that will be great in stimulation arsenals of nightstand drawers (and in purses).

K-Y® Brand INTENSE™ is available at food, drug, and mass retailers nationwide including Walgreens and Target. For more information on INTENSE™ and to hear from women who have already tried it, go to intensifyyourlove.com. If you have any questions, go ky.com or call 1-877-KYBrand.

    Do I think there is less sex after marriage? NO there isn’t, but there can be if you don’t put in the extra effort required to make it work. Yes children and the stresses of life take their toll, but you have to remember how GREAT sex is and how less enriched our married lives are without it.

  11. Oh, I think there is less sex after marriage. How can you possibly keep up with your early twenties. And of course the kids do leave you exhausted. I do daycare and on the days that I have kids for 18 hours I am exhausted and just feel like laying down and sleeping.

    I don’t think it’s the fact that your married, I think it’s sometimes life in general can get in the way and you get too busy for the extra effort and then throw kids in and there goes the little time you do have. 🙂

  16. less sex AFTER marriage. Trust me, the children came first.

  17. Karen

    I don’t think there is less sex after marriage unless you let that happen. My husband and I have been married for almost 5 years and we still have sex on an average of 5-7 times a week…..sometimes more! As for the kids getting in the way, you have to find time for just you and your signifacant other. Even if it’s just for a couple of hours while their napping or at a friends house. Your sex life is only as exciting and fulfilling as you make it!

  18. My husband and I waited for marriage, so I am not sure how to answer the question completely, as there was no sex before marriage, but I think a lot of it has to do with exhaustion from raising kids.

    I think that sex could change after having children for some women because your hormones are very diffrent after having a baby. This is something you should talk to your doctor about.

    No sex before marriage, but now that we have kids, I’d say for me it’s that the kids leave me EXHAUSTED by days end. But, it’s still important to make the time.

  29. I think the longer you are married the better it gets! We are on year 15 and have 3 girls. NOthing better than having the same partner. We know what one another wants and needs. We also know what kind of surprises are needed 😛 I think once your kids get about 5 and up you are less tired. So for those who struggle with that just don’t give up!

    Definately more after marriage.

  40. My husband and I have only been married for 2 years now. Based on my own personal experience, I do believe that there is definitely less sex after marriage. Before we got married we had sex just about daily, sometimes even a few times a day. Since we’ve been married we now only have sex “maybe” once a month. I’m currently 6 months pregnant with my first child, at the route our sexual relationship is going right now we may resort to not having sex at all once the baby gets here. I’m in my mid 20’s and my husband is in his early 30’s. I’m horny all the time, but suprisingly my husband is the one who doesn’t want to have sex. I never in my life met a man who would turn down sex until after we had got married. It is a disappointing feeling. We minus well not have sex at all, instead of waisting my time. We only have sex when “he’s ready for it.”

  44. Sky

    I don’t know if the sex is less…well, I mean, yeah. It’s still just as good. LOL, I just don’t think we are in the “OMG, we have to do it 4 times a night, every night” anymore. KWIM?

    Plus, when the kids are older, they stay up later and you’ve got to figure out how to deal with that!

    seriously its the kids, and the inlaws and the phone ringing that kill the mood- so shut off the phone put the kids asleep adn get in the mood- so you may fall asleep during it..oh well try again- try a breakfast quickie when all are gone- or meet up at the office. Yep there are routines and ruts but they need to be broken

    its definantly the exhaustion from waising the kids.

    I don’t think you have sex less just because you get married, however on down the road as you get older the sex will get lesser, because of age not because of marriage.

    less sex after marriage and kids. kids leave me excaushted

  55. mlswin

    Kids & all the other pressures make it more difficult to have sex. I am often exhausted

  56. Linda White

    We didnt have sex before marriage so its more after marriage! Sex in our 20’s was amazing!!!!!!!! Then 4 children in 6 years will leave you exhausted for many years, then the teens, ugh, less sex in 40’s but the quality is MUCH more meaningful!

  57. Mickeyfan

    Sex/your partner has to be a priority. If it is not, then there will be less sex. (And the “right” amount of sex varies from couple to couple!!!!) If you seem to have no interest, please have your dr. check your hormone levels.

  58. Mary D

    Honestly, I think you do have less sex after marriage but I think (besides kids leaving you exhausted lol) it’s more a matter of body and brain chemistry – as studies have shown that the chemicals/hormones responsible for sexual arousal between the same two people decline after two to five years (so maybe the cliche “the five year itch” has some biochemical truth to it LOL)

  59. g t ashmore

    I am afraid less after marriage–I hope this will change.

  60. Jaclyn R.

    We are doing better than ever. My hormone levels seem back to normal and I’m more confident in my body after 3 pregnancies and years of nursing.

  61. I don’t know if it’s true or not because I’m not married, nor do I have kids. But I’m guessing it’s because kids wear you out.

  62. I follow you on Twitter under Meredycat.

  63. Jessica C

  64. Sharon B

    It is difficult. But making a “date” with your spouse and really trying to keep it can help.

  65. Jessica

    Do you think it’s true that you have less sex after marriage, or is it the children that are leaving you exhausted? It would definitely be because of the exhaustion…not just from the kids, but from work and everyday life. It definitely will take its toll, so if you don’t work at it, it will be gone!

  68. elizabeth p

    It is a combination of many things, and this will vary by woman or man even. For me it is my husbands illness and his college demands, three kids, two cats, two puppies, two birds, one house that seems to fall apart at at once. Then there is my job, which I love 99% of the time. Yes by the time I get into the shower the water is cold and I just don’t want to be a snuggle bunny. Sexy went down the drain along with the cold water and a few more grey hairs.

  69. NICHOLAS NIEVES

    not for the fiest few yrears it doesnt change, matter of fact more sex

  70. Denise

    Yes, I think you have less sex after marriage. Beforehand it was a rebellion thing for me so now its just a chore.

  71. Brian N.

    probably less but not always a bad thing as the union evolves fron strictly physical to more emotional and spiritual as well as physical

  72. Stephanie V

    We did not have less sex after marriage, but absolutely after children. Yep, tired! I work part-time for pay and full-time as a mom so by the end of the day – forget it!

  82. Ellen Ring

    After dealing with the kids all day, both the problems & good moments. I’m worn out by evening & sex seems like more work then joy.

  83. Ugh, unfortunately I DO think it is true…. that we don’t have as much sex once we’re married. I have noticed that in my marriage & to be honest, I was scared that I was the only one who went through this. Now that hubby is in Iraq & deployed… I have no sex. Waaaaaaaahhh. Luckily he comes home soon for good. Then it’s ON! We would surely love to use this when he gets back! 🙂

    I’ve bought this product and it’s very expensive and didn’t do what I expected. The warming gel…wasn’t very warming and I didn’t feel anything different when the two gels got together. So I don’t know. The lubercant still works though.

  88. Pamela Callahan

    It depends on the individual. I think a well-organized and well-planned family would not let everyday life keep the from enjoying each other. I think that only happens if you let the stress take over your life!

  89. Joyce

  90. Susan

    I think the children are the culprit, not marriage. They’re just so exhausting!

  92. Lynn H

    Yes, less sex after kids…they just exhaust you…I just want to go to sleep when my head hits the pillow!

  93. Denyse

    Less sex after marriage and kids here. between the kids, my P/T night job, being up early to get the kids to school. Homework, my husband travelling, ect- there’s no energy left.

  94. Jennifer

    We’ve definitely slowed down since we got married, but when we make the time, it’s still great. We’re going for quality not quantity! We don’t have kids yet, but it seems like stress is the biggest thing that get in the way.

  97. Less sex after marriage cause… why? hahah just kidding.

  98. Gena

    I think there is less. It seems like there are a lot of road blocks like mortgage, bills, etc that maybe you didn’t think about. Things that stress you and keep you from being able to relax.

  99. Sherri G.

    I do think couples tend to have less sex over time, but I don’t think it can be attributed soley to marriage. Couples tend to get complacent over time. Life gets busier and busier, especially after you have children, and you tend to take each other more for granted the longer you’ve been together. The person who is your “rock” ends up last on the priority list when it should be the other way around. They should come first! I learned this lesson the hard way on my first marriage and vow I won’t make the same mistake again.

  100. cathi rushing

    after 21 years and kids and grandkids we have more and better sex

  101. Holly

    The kids are for sure exhausting!!

  102. Linda Lansford

    more and less. We have been married 38 years and now it is less

  103. Less sex after marriage… no! After Children…there can be less, yes you are tired and worn out, but it doesn’t have to be that way. Sex can actual revitalize you, so it pays to make time for sex.

    You have less sex after your married. Especially if your us and it’s your second marriage and your children are teenagers and their rooms are right next to yours and your kids bang on the wall because your making the bed squeak! My Boys banging on the wall? That’s a mood breaker I tell ya!

    I definitely think kids take a huge tole on your love life, mentally and physically. So yes, definitely lack of due to exhaustion!!

    I actually don’t know how to answer this question. My husband and I have 4 boys and we manage to deal with the everyday stuff, keep our marriage together, deal with the kids and everything that comes with it and still have time for sex at the end of the day. So, I’m not really sure……………….I don’t seem to have a problem with that. LOL!

  149. Heather

    No, I don’t think that’s true. I just think you remember it differently. We have four kids and have been married 15 years next month.

  150. Daniel M

    no – less sex after having kids maybe, but not just getting married

  151. Molly Capel

    I think it depends on the people. I know finding time & energy to have sex, when you have kids is hard.

  152. Christina

    Marriage and early romance are not the same, and shouldn’t be – a time and place for everything!

  153. Miranda

    I certainly believe that sex subsides after you have kids. I have been married 10 years and sex has slowly dwindled from four times a week to once every other week. The busier the kids get the less sex we have.

  154. michelle robbins

    More sex now that I’m married. It could be more often but some days we’re too tired. I find if I do it even though I’m tired, I like it anyways – kind of like exercise. It’s the getting started part.

  155. Craig Johnson

    KY??? OH MY!!!!!

    Speaking for myself, my kids and work leave me exhausted.

  157. 216amyc

    It’s true the most people have less sex after marriage or even after being together for years and years. But for me, it’s the kids and the job leaving me too exhausted.

  158. I think it’s a combination, but kids definitely disrupt your ability to have sex whenever!

  159. jill watkins

    I definitely think sex gets less frequent after the arrival of children. Couples have more responsibilities and stress to deal with and it can be difficult to switch from parent mode to lover mode.

  176. Kimberly M

    I think there is more sex after marriage but that the stresses of keeping up with the bills and family and everything can get in the way.

  177. Samantha Miller

    I think it’s the children that make you exhausted!

    I think sex is just more infrequent after marriage in general.

    DO YOU HAVE ANY “EXTRA STRENGTH” FOR MY MAN ?

  183. Jodene Gildea

    I have been married almost 16 years and didn’t have a child until after 10 – it’s not the being married, it’s the kids or so I think anyway – your life changes.

  184. Jennifer Hedden

    less sex after children

  185. Jessica

    It the children that are leaving you exhausted. My littlest one is still sleeping in a cradle next to our bed.

    We could use all the help we can get!

  189. Marianna

    WAY less. I think it’s both. Kids DO leave us exhausted but also we’re mored bored with each other… less time, spontaneity, stressful jobs, a mortgage…. *sigh*

  190. Lauren

    It is an unfortunate truth that marriage puts strain on any relationship. This is especially true when adding children into the mix. Instead of gearing our emotions solely towards our significant others we have the little ones to be concerned with.

  191. Laura G

    Sometimes is does, but it’s up to both partners to keep things fresh and exciting even with work, bills, kiddos and all the other stresses…

  192. Joyce Jacobs

    I think you have to make an effort NOT to let day to day life get in the way of intimacy. We all lead such hectic, busy lives that it’s easy to say “I’m too tired, maybe tomorrow.” For me it’s hard sometimes to dredge up enough energy at the end of a busy day, but afterwards I always remember why it’s worth it. 🙂

  193. tabatha cazel

    around our house, it’s not children causing
    exhaustion, it’s the kid’s perfect timing, just
    when the mood just to heat up, “mommy, i don’t feel good” or our oldest ” mom, i don’t have anything clean for school tomorow”,get the picture
    it’s like they sense something almost like
    Christmas eve,

  194. ktanjatk

    I don’t think that marriage per se has anything to do with less sex, it’s more how long are you together…married or not, and are you willing to make an effort and spice it up a little, so it doesn’t become just a routine which you often skip.

  195. ky2here

    Oh yea, less sex! No doubt – at least with each other!

  196. Susan P

    busy schedules and kids get in the way…

  197. I think it is the kids leaving you exhausted!

    I think that taking care of children for 12 hours a day or more leaves you more than exhausted! That doesn’t include all the other duties we perform. Or for women that work at a paid job all day then rush home to kids, pick up the house, cook, etc. Yea, that’ll lower anyones sex drive!

    For our first 8 years of marriage the answer was no. Even with 3 children we kept up an active sex life and always made sure to make time for each other. During the past 2 years the answer is yes because our small business has grown and we are now working 12-15 hours days 6-7 days a week. There is so little time left in our hectic schedule and I’m sure it’s the same for many couples.

    No question children wear you out to the point that sleep sounds more enticing than sex. As children grow and life becomes more complex and involved you often have to “work” to make sure you have the time, energy and passion to keep it ALIVE and HOT…

  208. Karen M

    There is not always less sex after marriage. Making time for each other is the key to a long and happy marriage. At times other things are a priority but take the time to reconnect with your spouse.

  209. Beverley Justice

    Less sex after marriage, even if the marriage is “child free.” Another desperate housewife complaining….

  210. Vicki Andrew

    way less after marriage

  211. Sarah Stern

    It’s not that the kids exhaust you, it’s that their presence kills spontaneity. Nighttime only sex means less sex.

  212. Carla

    I don’t have kids yet, so I’m not sure what a damper that will have, but I don’t think marraige has any effect on sex.

  213. Lindsey Safford

    I don’t think that people have less sex after marriage but then again it depends on the couple. If both partners are helping in a relationship where they have children then their sex life won’t necessarily be different than before marriage and kids. Every relationship is different and it all depends on communication and cooperation in a relationship.

  214. Douglas

    great prize.. thank you !!

  215. Bev

    Less sex after kids–alas, it is true. If the kids don’t exhaust you, work, house cleaning, laundry, etc. will do the trick.

  216. jjean

    for me the answer is no. I think the may overgeneralize.

  217. Jennifer gersch

    I say yes. I certainly do and it’s because I am exhauseted from work and all of my household cleaning

  218. Yes to less sex after kids, exhaustion takes over!

  219. I follow you on twitter, mom2anutball!

  220. Lily Kwan

    I’m going to go with the children are causing exhaustion.

  221. Veronica Garrett

    In general I guess there is less sex after marriage. You have the responsibilitty of family and making everything work. You have to put it in perspective with everything else. The number isn’t important unless it is too low. You have to make time for each other.

  222. Heather C

    Kids, for sure… It’s only ten in the morning and I’m about to nod off!

  223. Martha J

    I believe the statement is true……after 5 years or so have passed.

  224. Jane Hoh

    The ultimate in time management. You need to plan their days and nights so that you have time for yours 🙂

  225. Catherine KingChuparkoff

    Initially , after the birth of our children, the sex became the least of the priorities, but now that they are school age, it is back to the good times again!

  226. susan

    I think the kids can exhaust you.. but you have to make time.. It can be tough but it is doable.

  227. Paul

    Your attention is to the kids and so your spouse unfortunately receives the short end of the stick. This becomes routine and years pass.

    yes I think it is true, weird but true
