Start the New Year off right by improving your sex life

There is no better time than at the beginning of a brand-new year to get your sex life off to a great start.  Putting into practice a few practical moves can be all you’ll need to fulfill and take your sexual pleasures to new heights.

When we experience incredible sex, we experience better overall health.  Studies have shown regular sex has a host of health benefits from lowered blood pressure, reduced stress, better heart health, improved immune functioning and erases anxiety and stress. 

What are you waiting for?  Here are some suggestions on how to have better sex for health, happiness and greater life satisfaction:

Improve libido

If your drive to have sex is waning, then it’s time to do a fine tune-up figuring out what’s wrong.  Emotional issues could be one diminishing aspect of sex drive.  If you’re going through some tough times with family, work or health issues, the last thing on your mind might be having sex.  It is not possible to avoid all stress in our lives but finding healthy ways of dealing with and lowering tension can open up the door to awakening your libido.

Certain medications could also lower your initiative to want to have sexual encounters.  If they affect you this way, talk to your doctor about another alternative.  

Are you taking good care of yourself by mainly choosing nutritious foods and exercising regularly?  If the answer is no, these are lifestyle changes that can be improved upon.  Eating a diet of mostly fresh, whole fruits, vegetables, and lean proteins can help you feel better by lowering blood pressure and helping maintain a healthy body weight.  Regular exercise releases endorphins helping you feel happier and more relaxed and improves body image.  

Each day do Kegel exercises

One surefire way to improve sexual health is to practice simple pelvic floor exercises known as Kegels.  For women, the benefits include increased sexual sensation, more frequent orgasms, strengthening the vagina after childbirth and helping postmenopausal women maintain lubrication.  

Kegels done by men can improve erectile dysfunction, help increase ejaculatory control as well as promote stronger orgasms and improved bladder control.  

Make this a daily routine and you will notice a difference within weeks

Practice safe sex

Having sex can be risky.  It involves areas of the body entering intimate contact that can harbor transmittable bacteria to a partner or yourself. The touching of intimate areas of the body during sex makes it possible for sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) to crop up if you are not being careful.  

That’s why it is so important to know how to practice safe sex.   Have an open and honest conversation about your sexual health history with all new partners.  Know what birth control is being used.  Get tested before each new partner and always wear a condom.  Practicing safe sex is absolutely necessary to avoid being sorry if you contract a STD. 

Make time for sex

It may sound unbelievable but sometimes for some couples, sex needs to be scheduled.  Our day-to-day lives may be so hectic and overbooked that making or having time for any sexual interlude gets shoved aside.  

Having an alive and active sex life is vital to nurturing our physical, emotional, mental and social well-being.  It makes us feel closer to our partner, more loved and needed, and it just feels so good. The lovey-dovey feeling of sex is like glue binding a couple together keeping that connection strong and meaningful.

When sex is happening regularly, your body gets a boost of all kinds of health benefits – you’ll get sick less often, self-esteem is improved, relieves stress, reduces depression, makes you look younger and you’ll sleep like a baby.  Mark it on your calendar today to make sex happen.

Consider masturbation

Whether you are in a relationship or not, masturbation has numerous health benefits.  For women, self-pleasuring promotes fluid circulation in and around the cervix, clearing out harmful bacteria helping prevent cervical and urinary tract infections.  

For men, the Health Professionals Follow-up Study of almost 32,000 men, found men who ejaculated more than five times a week had a third less likelihood of developing prostate cancer. 

Practicing masturbation can also give a man’s pelvic floor muscles a workout which can help prevent erectile dysfunction and incontinence.  In addition, all that practice is good for helping a man learn how to control his ejaculations training him to last longer.  

In conclusion

This New Year, make your sex life its best yet.  Frequency of sex will vary from couple to couple so it is best not to compare yourself with other couples on how often it is occurring for them.  

Instead, the more important thing to focus on is the special bond sex creates between couples.  Sex creates passion, vulnerability and a unique connection you share with no one else.  This special bond cannot be created any other way other than sexually.  Learning to talk about sex, being open to discussing what you and your partner wants, feels, and needs is the best recipe for great sex keeping it flourishing, sensual and erotic throughout the entire year.
