We know the importance of keeping ourselves healthy when it comes to our bodies, but we don’t always think of keeping our sex lives healthy. However, sex is an integral part in our overall health and happiness. Keeping it alive and well can affect you in more ways than you may have thought. And never fear, you can have a healthy sex life whether you have a partner or not.
In order to have a healthy sex life and outlook you first must lay a foundation of sex positive thoughts and knowledge of yourself. Do not let anyone tell you that sex is bad or dirty and that enjoying yourself is wrong. Sex is a natural and wonderful thing. You also need to know yourself. Take the time to explore who you are and what you like. Relax and find out what gets you going and where you like to be touched. Get a simple vibrator from Adam & Eve if you feel a little weird about using your hand at first. Knowing yourself will help you feel more confident and sexually empowered. And not to mention, you can now take satisfaction into your own hands.
Open communication is also a key component to a healthy sex life. Be sure to talk to your partner about what you like and what you don’t like. If you’ve been interested in trying something, vocalize it. Express your worries and concerns and praise them for things that they do well. Let them know when they’re hitting all the right spots. You’ll increase your intimacy and bond by keeping the conversation open and going. You may even learn something new about them or yourself. It’s also important to note that you should never feel uncomfortable or like you’ve gone too far with something. Talking will help mitigate those feelings and situations.
Healthy sex also takes form in the way of protection. Taking responsibility for yourself and protecting yourself from unwanted diseases and children is incredibly important. Use whatever your comfortable with and will provide you with the kind of protection you need. Be smart and use it every time.
