Taking care of your sexual health is as essential as taking care of your mental and physical well-being. A person with good sexual health has decreased chances of catching genital infections or getting sexually transmitted diseases. Moreover, it also increases libido and helps enjoy a better sex life. That’s why we listed down six easy to follow tips, right from the desk of Misters’ Ayurvedic and Sex Health expert panel that can help you maintain excellent sexual health and keep your sex life fine.
Exercise To Spice
Exercise is known for many health benefits. One of them is sex. It helps improve blood circulation by keeping your cardiovascular system hearty and happy. Health experts worldwide believe that a hike in endorphins in the body helps in love-making, not to mention that being toned would make you and your partner feel sexier, heading to a more pleasurable experience.
Go For Kegel Exercises
Kegel exercises strengthen the pelvic muscles by increasing the blood circulation flow in the pelvic region, thus improving their tone and sensitivity. Strong pelvic muscles can result in a more substantial sensation during arousal and orgasm.
How to perform Kegel exercises?
First, sit in a relaxed position with your legs slightly apart or lie down on your back with your knees bent and feet flat on the floor. Focus and start contracting the pelvic muscles tightly. Do 30 to 50 repetitions in rapid continuation. Breathe freely throughout the exercise. Once done, contract and hold the pelvic muscles for about 5 seconds and then relax for another 5 seconds. Gradually increase the time to 10 seconds.
Indulge In Yoga
Yoga is another form of exercise that develop a sense of calmness, strength, stamina, agility, and knowledge of your body. It also gives you the ability to remain in the present moment and significantly enhances sexual performance and confidence, regardless of which asana you are practising. Here are some of the asanas that work best for improving stamina and agility:
Paschimottanasana (seated forward bend pose) to improve endurance by strengthening perennial muscles that support penile erectile rigidity.
Kumbhakasana (plank pose) to improve stamina in bed. If done regularly, it can increase energy and overall upper body strength.
Uttanapadmagana (raised leg pose) to enhance energy and blood flow to the pelvic region.
Naukasana (boat pose) to stimulate sexual hormones and increase sexual energy.
Watch What You Are Eating
Diet plays a significant role in building endurance, stamina, strength and vitality of the body. Increase the intake of fruits, vegetables and whole grains. It is essential to get a blood checkup every six months to track any vitamin deficiencies in the body. As Vitamin D and Vitamin B12 levels play a vital role in the sexual function of an individual, it is essential to include either multivitamins or fortified foods in the daily diet.
Say No To Smoking
Nicotine in cigarettes is one of the biggest reasons for damaged veins and arteries. Moreover, smoking cigarettes every day can even harm the body's private parts. Acute vasospasm, contraction of the penile tissue, restricted blood flow to the penis, infertility, and reduced semen quality are some of the other terrible effects of smoking on one's sexual health.
Communication Is The Key
Many pieces of research claim that couples who talk to each other about their wants and desires have better sex and a healthier relationship. Telling your partner what you like and don't like in bed and sharing your most intimate fantasies and desires is the key to a more robust and healthy sexual life.
We are often so focused on our physical and mental health that we neglect our sexual health completely. Surprisingly, sexual health doesn't demand you to go out and do something extra. Just some moderations in your day-to-day activities and lifestyle can be a great start towards a better sexual health and enhanced bedroom experiences.
