Recently, I was on a Zoom call for a class on vulnerability. The facilitator asked us what we are doing during this pandemic to improve an area of our lives. I realized that my answer was unique: I have been working on strengthening my pelvic floor.
You may not realize, but exercising your pelvic floor is something you can do for yourself during this stressful time. All genders benefit from strengthening this area, as it affects your health in a variety of ways.
A strong pelvic floor can help support female organs, as well as the bladder. It may help prevent UTIs – which can get in the way of pain-free sex. Even better, a strong pelvic floor may help support a better sex life, affording better orgasms and increased genital sensitivity.
If you have a penis, a stronger pelvic floor can help with better range of motion for thrusting, and allow you to ejaculate further and with more control! Woohoo!
Let’s get into two ways you can strengthen your pelvic floor.
Covid-19 is changing the world as we know it. One industry that is seeing a big boon in sales due in part to the stay-at-home orders and a growing need for self-pleasure is the sex toy industry.
With masturbation being the one truly safest sex you can have during quarantine, finding and purchasing a new toy has become something of a new pastime. The privacy factor of being able to order online has also fed into the rush to purchase a new sex toy during lockdown. Yet, as the LA Times reports, “sex-toy sales are up, stigma is down.”
Meanwhile, one sex toy maker, Muse, has switched over its manufacturing from lube to hand sanitizer.
May is Masturbation Month. And now with Covid-19, everyone is stuck at home. Your adolescent kids might have been feeling stifled and also discovering some of their, well, urges. What a great time to discuss masturbation with the whole family!
But seriously, having an authentic and candid, yet age-appropriate discussion with your kids about masturbation is one of the biggest gifts you can give your children. It sets them up for a better perspective on sex in general and also can help boost their self-esteem.
Here are some tips on how to approach this sticky (sorry couldn’t help it) subject.
Masturbation May is Marching on! In all the discussion of self love, we would be remiss not to honor a gold standard in masturbatory pleasure. I’m talking about the almighty “rabbit.”
The rabbit-style vibrator is one of the most iconic sex toy styles and known for its internal and external stimulation.
In this article we will briefly cover what it is, its history and presence in the collective sexual consciousness. Plus we’ll tell you all about our current favorite.
Breakups can be horribly painful even in the best circumstances. Breaking up during quarantine can cause even more emotional havoc, heretofore unseen in our lifetime. Splitting up has never been more complicated or just plain weird.
The rules of breakups have changed. There are all these memes saying “no matter how scared or lonely you are, don’t text your ex.” Well, that sounds good in theory, but in the middle of an adrenaline-pumping global crisis, it is easier said than done. Continue Reading
Cabin fever. It’s real, people. And it’s happening now more than ever.
For introverts, this quarantine time might be heavenly. No pressure to go out and socialize. No one can guilt you into coming to that crowded birthday party and awkwardly try to make small talk while wishing you could be home watching Tiger King and eating ice cream in bed.
For extroverts, however, this corona-quarantine time and the social distancing might be a small private hell. If not hell, at least uncomfortable and frustrating. There’s no opportunity to gather with friends for sushi, no coffee dates, no extracurricular outdoor activities. No wild orgies, either. Dang. How can you handle staying in when you are an extrovert?
Here are some ways you might be able to not just handle this time, but maybe even thrive during quarantine.
Since our world has been turned upside down by Covid-19, and we are shut inside due to social distancing measures, we might be feeling like the days are running into each other.
You’ve seen the memes talking about forgetting which day it is, right? Well, that “losing time” can be a great gift – but it also can cause us to forget to make some occasion special even during quarantine.
How do you make a day feel like a celebration when every day seems the same? How do you keep special occasions “special”? Here are some tips to help you celebrate during this time.
You might be wondering “what is ‘phimosis?” The word kind of sounds like a sneeze. Well, it isn’t – it is a medical condition affecting uncircumcised males and is related to the ability to pull the foreskin of the penis back behind the glans.
While phimosis is a relatively rare condition, it is a very real one that can take a toll on your sex life, and it can be difficult to discuss if you suffer from it. It isn’t the sexiest subject, but for many, it’s a real part of life.
If you or a partner suffers from phimosis, educating yourself medically is important. This blog will break down the details of phimosis from causes to prevention and everywhere in between!
The birds are chirping. The sun is warmer. You can’t go anywhere anyway (thanks ‘rona!). So it is time to do some spring cleaning. You know – that tradition of cleaning your home from top to bottom, even under the sofa cushions.
But don’t forget that sex drawer! Yes, sex toys need some spring cleaning, too. Many of us don’t realize that we have to clean our toys regularly, not just after use. We also may not realize that it might be time to refresh our collection.
Here are some tips on how to clean your sex toys, as well as a little “out with the old, in with the new.”
Since it is April, some of us might have been thinking about spring cleaning…then of course Covid-19 hit and we probably have already cleaned every square inch of our homes by now.
But there might be one tweak to your home that you hadn’t thought of yet: Keeping your bedroom space sexy. Now, that doesn’t necessarily mean hanging all your toys for everyone (including your kids if you have them) to see. Keeping your bedroom space sexy can include different aspects of the meaning of “space.”
The following are some top tips for creating and maintaining a hot sexy space in your bedroom.
