Sexual wellness is wellness. Read that again. Sex isn’t an extracurricular activity or even something reserved for couples. You do not need a partner to be sexual (but it is great if you have someone in your life who fulfills that role). Your sexual health is immensely important for your overall well-being. That said, are you freestyling your sexual wellness, or have you sat down to determine a healthy sexual wellness routine? Because if you don’t have a routine set, you probably need one.
As a multidimensional concept, sexual wellness isn’t just about physical aspects or intimacy; there can also be an emotional and spiritual component to this type of wellness. And we’re not talking about preventative health of a sexual nature either. This type of sexual wellness stems from self-care and self-awareness. Sexual wellness is about being human.
Ways to Boost Your Sexual Wellness Routine
Get reading – Sexual wellness is having a moment. Now is a great time to indulge in sex-positive literature, self-help books, and soul-searching anecdotes that resonate with your wellness journey. If you don’t have time or don’t want to read, consider looking up some podcasts to gain new knowledge. Sex and science continue to evolve, so staying abreast of the latest information can help you with your sexual wellness routine.
Go shopping – The words “sex” and “routine” may trigger a long sigh or an eye roll, but remember, we’re not exclusively talking about sex or physical intimacy. Sometimes, sexual wellness is as simple as wearing a special outfit that makes you feel attractive. This could be silky lingerie or underwear, or even a slouchy sweater. Enhancing your self-esteem can do wonders for improving your sexual wellness.
Spend some alone time – Once you’ve nailed down an outfit that makes you feel irresistible, it is time to set the mood. Find a quiet, safe space where you would feel comfortable exploring your own body with touch. Don’t move straight to what “always works.” Instead, see if you can discover new curves of your body and new areas of positive sensitivity, or try new patterns with your fingers and run your hands along your skin. Touch is such a powerful component of sexual wellness. First, get comfortable and explore on your own. Then, if you choose, invite a partner to join you on the exploratory adventure or share your new findings with them.
Play with scents – Consider trying aromatherapy or essential oils to see what senses you can stimulate in your sexual wellness routine. It is not all about touch. Sometimes, you need sight or music to make it a full-body, immersive experience.
Invest in some tools – Remember that tastes change, and what you do that aroused you months or years ago may have changed. That is why self-exploration is so important, so you can discover new ways of experiencing oneness with yourself alongside some pleasure. Once you identify the new trigger spots and areas of delight, you may want to research some sex toys that address those areas. Let’s not forget that Bluetooth or remote-powered partner-controlled toys are all the rage these days. If you have a partner you trust, playing with one of these toys could be fun and eye-opening in the best possible way.
Develop and appetite for apps – As science and technology move at warped speed, many application developers are cashing in on the opportunity to create meaningful sexual wellness programs you can use on your Smartphone. Many intimacy and sex-related apps are available to try by yourself or with a partner. Stop scrolling and see what your Smartphone can do for you and your sexual wellness.
Identify underlying issues – You go to the doctor to get a checkup. You go to the dentist to get a cleaning and ensure you don’t have any issues with your teeth. Why wouldn’t you take time to examine your sexual health as well? If you’ve been having trouble with low libido or dryness, take note. You can pursue several natural options to assist with these underlying issues. For example, you may benefit from The O-Shot®, a platelet-rich plasma (PRP) treatment that uses your own blood to stimulate new cell growth in the vagina. For men, you’ll want to look into The P-Shot®. Same concept but different hardware. Natural procedures, such as these, can provide rapid relief and get your sexual wellness back on track.
Another option worth considering is the Diva ™ Laser for vaginal rejuvenation. This isn’t a facelift for your privates. Instead, it is a patented system that targets the vaginal wall and stimulates the fresh growth of healthy (and plump) cells. You can improve elasticity and increase collagen production for more natural lubrication and, well, a rejuvenated vagina!
Ask questions – Intimacy cannot be forced, but if you and your partner seem to be growing distant, consider playing a get-to-know-you game. These types of games have cards with thought-provoking questions that help you get to know yourself and your partner on a deeper level. When we connect with a partner on an intimate level, we strengthen our relationship in a myriad of ways. Also, communication is an essential aspect of sexual wellness. Know your boundaries and learn how to speak up to address your individual needs. This may take practice, but you should undoubtedly incorporate communication exercises into your sexual wellness routine.
Okay, But Why?
You may wonder why you should invest all this time and energy into your sexual wellness. The answer lies in science! When we indulge our pleasure systems sexually, our bodies release feel-good hormones that can combat stress, boost confidence, and usher in a night of peaceful, restful sleep. Sexuality plays an important role in the human experience, but the benefits of pleasure linked to sexuality support our overall health and wellness.
Sexual intimacy is also excellent cardio. It gets your heart rate up and can strengthen your heart muscles and improve circulation while releasing those delightful hormones. There are so many benefits! Not to mention, sexual intimacy can boost your immunity and may even help your skin retain a healthy glow.
Beyond the Bedroom
Consider trying yoga to become more in tune with your body outside of the bedroom. The practice of yoga encourages you to focus on the breath and body movement. You can learn to listen to your body and meditate to enhance your inner peace. Yoga also helps strengthen your muscles and improve flexibility, two components that make sexual intimacy a little better.
