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.
