Due to the COVID-19 global pandemic, many people are being forced to remain inside their homes. There’s an endless number of things that you could be doing right now to keep yourself busy during quarantine, but have you considered taking the time to improve your sexual health and spruce up your sex life?
Orgasms do wonders for your happiness, so I’ve gathered some tips on how to take advantage of this time to enhance your pleasure!
Evaluate Your Current Sexual Health
Did you know that you’re supposed to get tested for STDs every time you start hooking up with someone new? Luckily, online testing kits are conveniently available during this time of stay-at-home orders
It’s also important for women to regularly visit the gynecologist to ensure their reproductive organs are in good health. If you are experiencing any discomfort in your lady region, check with your doctor to see if they are offering digital telehealth visits during this time.
Be sure to also take advantage of telemedicine companies during self-isolation so that you can stay on top of any medications you’re taking, without having to leave your home to retrieve them. Ensure you have contraception on hand, so you’re prepared to get it on when physical dating is possible again.
If you’re quarantining with a partner and facing any sexual difficulties, like erectile dysfunction, try seeking the help of online sex therapy programs. You’ll thank yourself for taking the time to bring your sexual health up to par so that you don’t have to worry about it after quarantine.
The more comfortable we are with our naked body, the more confident we are in the bedroom. When we start to unconditionally accept and appreciate our bodies, we begin to feel more comfortable being seen, receiving pleasure and expressing ourselves when intimate.
Don’t get me wrong, we all have body image issues! However if we are willing to work on them, heal them, overcome them and accept our body as it is (naked!) we become more willing to leave the lights on during sex, trying any position (not just ones that make us look flattering) and feel at home in our skin.
Try a Women’s Nude Yoga class with one of the incredible facilitators at Naked Awakening. You will leave feeling empowered, liberated and free in your body and yourself!
Yoga isn’t just about being “flexible”, it’s about connecting to your mind, body and soul through breath, sound and movement. Whether you’re practicing yin yoga, hot power yoga or Kundalini Yoga, there are SO many benefits to getting on the mat! It increases energy levels, calms down your nervous system, strengthens your muscles, helps posture, quietens your mind and makes you feel sexy, centered and strong.
One of my favourite invisible benefits of yoga is that it helps you engage your pelvic floor muscles. When practicing your ‘Mula Bandha’ (aka kegels) it helps to strengthen and tone your pelvic floor muscles, which supports a strong spine and core as well as enhances orgasms, eases menstrual symptoms and increases blood flow to the pelvis, which creates more natural lubrication and arousal. Yoga? Yes please!
Quench Your Thirst
Water helps to cleanse, detoxify and hydrate the inner body, whilst also making you appear more youthful, bright and dewy on the outside (especially your face). The more clean, filtered spring water we drink, the more juicy, lubricated and energised we feel sexually. Water is also the element of the Sacral Chakra, the Chakra responsible for sexuality, creativity, relationships and pleasure.
So the more water we drink and the more we surround ourselves with water (like the ocean, lakes or waterfalls), the more activated we become sexually and the more likely we will be able to squirt/ejaculate. It also makes our cum taste sweeter and look clearer.
Fuel Your Body
We all know how important it is to eat foods that provide our bodies with healthy nutrients and the energy we need to last throughout the day. However, there are certain foods that are both good for your health and that can make your cum taste yum.
Coconut meat and oil help fight off yeast infections as they contain antifungal, anti-microbial, and anti-viral properties while the antioxidants and acidic compounds of cranberries aid in preventing UTIs. Cinnamon, yogurt, and avocados are also great options to help with your vaginal health.
Explore Slower Self-Pleasure
Because we all have a bit more time on our hands, why not slow down and savour your masturbation experience? Rather than using a vibrator and porn as a quick-fix ‘genital sneeze’ style of orgasm, slow down and use something like a glass or crystal pleasure wand designed to help reach erogenous zones deep inside the vagina and re-sensitize erectile tissue that can become less sensitive from excessive vibrator use.
Having a warm bath, massaging your whole body, in particular your belly and breasts, slowing down your breath, taking your time and using a crystal pleasure wand might be a nice way to slow down self-pleasure and make you feel like you’re ‘making love to yourself’ rather than just getting off.
Since the clitoral anatomy has been discovered to have two legs and two vestibule bulbs that extend down through the labia lips and into the vaginal canal, wrapping around the G-spot, we can use specific toys like the glass Sacred Squirter or the Cervix Serpent to explore G-spot orgasms and Cervical Orgasms, which may take a little more time than the clitoris. Slow down and take your time and see what happens!
