17. Keep your weight stable
Weight gain and loss can affect your sex organs. Fat is stored in the mons pubis, the area above the labia. When you gain weight more fat will become evident. It will disappear when you lose a lot of weight. This is known as the infamous âcamel toe.’ Most women are self-conscious about it, but the mons pubis is meant to have a small layer of fat in it. It is there to protect your lady parts from injury and discomfort from chafing during intercourse.
The higher your BMI scale calculation, the more likely you are to have a pronounced mons pubis. But bear in mind that it is meant to be there, and you can’t get rid of it entirely. Obesity can have an effect on the muscles. The muscles become weakened. This is due to the fact that the body is working hard to keep functioning. Muscle tone and strength takes a back seat to maintain life. As a result, a woman might find that her skin looses down there. She may also find that she struggles with issues like incontinence or prolapse.
If you lose weight, the muscles in your vagina may start to tighten up. But just like any other weight loss program, exercise is an important component. Doing Kegel exercises will do a lot to firm up the muscles. Losing weight and keeping it off is the ultimate goal for those who are overweight.
It has distinct benefits for your overall health and well-being. But it can also lead to a healthier love life as it gives you the chance to be a little bit more adventurous in the bedroom. It’s something to keep in mind as a motivator when you’re about to give in to temptation or blow off your exercise session.
18. Sleep naked
Sleeping in underwear may not be your best choice. Many women express fear about sleeping naked because they feel awkward about it. But the best way to get over that is to bear in mind that it has health benefits. If you’re prone to any thrush or infections, it might be time to consider going commando when you get between the sheets.
The reason you should not cover your lady parts with underwear at night is that it needs a chance to breathe. If you’ve worn underwear the whole day, your lady parts have been confined and suffocated all day. Like your skin, they need to breathe. Being covered up like that brings on an excess of moisture which is not good for the lady parts. It can lead to all sorts of complications such as yeast infections. That moisture is the place yeast, and other bacteria favor for replicating and breeding.
You might not feel comfortable going without underwear during the day. But you can try it at night. If you feel uncomfortable about being naked or worry that it’s too cold for naked sleeping, wear loose-fitting cotton pajama pants. It’s something that’s worth trying. Wait for the warmer months if you worry about being cold. If you feel self-conscious, try to get to the root of the reason for this. Maybe you can work past that and get to the stage where you’re fine sleeping naked.
Sleeping naked also helps the body to regulate its temperature. This improves the quality of your sleep, your immune system, and your appetite. And best of all, it has the added advantage of improving your love life! Think about itâ¦
19. Use lubricant during act
Your body is designed to produce natural lubricants when you become physically aroused. These lubricants make lovemaking more pleasurable. They make sure you aren’t dry down there as this can make lovemaking uncomfortable. The friction experienced during the act can hurt you if you aren’t properly lubricated. When you can relax because you’re well-lubricated, you can let yourself go and enjoy the experience.
The presence of lubricant heightens your pleasure and helps you to reach an orgasm. It makes lovemaking more enjoyable for your partner as well. However, despite the fact that your body produces some lubrication, it might not be enough. You might find yourself dry midway through intercourse. Some discomfort then ruins the pleasure. In extreme cases, your privy parts may be injured by abrasions caused by the friction. Like a machine, it needs to be well-lubricated to function at its best. Many women who have experienced this are put off lovemaking because it was not pleasant for them.
Many women may see lubricant as something that is used for âkinky’ acts. They feel embarrassed that they aren’t producing enough lubrication and perceive it as a failure on their part. Time passing has shown that there is nothing to feel bad about. It happens to everyone. As you get older and menopause approaches, your hormones are out of balance. This can prevent your body from producing lubrication. But this doesn’t mean you’re reduced to none or uncomfortable love life.
A lubricant is an answer. It’s a mere aid to help you both enjoy your physical encounters more. Use water-based or silicone-based lubricants. Oil-based lubricants can break down the latex in condoms and render them ineffective. Include the use of lubricant as part of your foreplay and enjoy!
20. Avoid wet wipes
Wet wipes are great for emergencies. They can clean up even the worst mess with the minimum of fuss. That doesn’t mean they’re good for your lady parts, though. Many women clean up after a steamy session with a wet wipe. While it’s a good idea to clean up, don’t use wet wipes if you can avoid it. But if you’re in a less than conventional rendezvous point, they may be your best bet.
If you use wet wipes, always wipe from front to back. If you do the opposite, you could bring germs from one place to another. This can lead to an infection, which is the last thing you want or need. Don’t be too sparing with the wet wipes either. Using the same one over and over won’t get the affected area clean and fresh.
If you can clean up with something other than wet wipes, this is the best way to go about it. Despite the claims on the packaging, wet wipes are not natural. They’re not just pieces of cloth soaked in water. They contain many chemicals. These include phenoxyethanol, ethylhexylglycerin, and benzo alcohol. It’s best to avoid exposing your lady parts to chemicals such as these as they may cause infection.
These chemicals may act as irritants to the skin and won’t offer any soothing effect. These are only some of the chemicals in wet wipes. Read the package before you use wet wipes down there. The list of chemicals might be enough to put you off them for life. Wash up after lovemaking with a gentle, unscented soap to keep the delicate pH levels of your vaginal area in balance and avoid any discomfort.
