10 Tips For Better Sex This Valentine's Day

It's almost February 14th, so we’ve compiled our top ten tips for healthy, happy sex!

1. Lube Up


Vaginal dryness is a common problem for women during and after the menopause. Sometimes the problem can be so severe that sex is really painful! It’s important to choose a lubricant that's gentle on your body, as vaginal dryness often makes your skin more sensitive. We’ve got a fabulous selection of body-friendly lubricants to choose from.

Many women like light, silky lubes since they feel really natural such as Pjur Med Natural Glide or Sylk. YES is one of our best-selling lubricant brands; they only use natural, organic ingredients. They've recently created a gorgeous new flavoured lube laced with real Madagascan vanilla extract - YES OB Vanilla Plant Oil Based Personal Lubricant.

2. Do Your Kegels


v for menWe’ve said it before but we’ll keep on saying it… kegel exercises improve your sex life! For ladies the pelvic floor surrounds the vaginal walls, so when they're weak you'll feel ‘slack’ and lose sensation. Toning up your pelvic floor will make you feel tight, give you better orgasms and improve sensation for you and your partner. Tone up with a Kegel8 Ultra 20 Pelvic Toner!

Blokes, listen up. Kegel exercises can help you perform too! 6 months of kegel exercises are proven to be more effective in beating erectile dysfunction than prescribed erection enhancing drugs, so tone up your pelvic floor for a natural way to get your mojo back. Plus, strengthening your kegel muscles with a Kegel8 V For Men Pelvic Toner is clinically proven to alleviate premature ejaculation in 60% of men.

3. Try Sponge Tampons


During menstruation you are at your least fertile point, so your body will naturally feel more in the mood. A lot of women are happy to just put down a towel and go for it while on their period; why not? However, some of us are reluctant or squeamish about period sex.

Don’t let Mother Nature get in the way of your love-life, give Beppy Soft Comfort Tampons Wet a go. They conform to the natural shape of your body and to your partner during sex. So he won’t know it’s there and you won’t have to worry about leaks!

4. Keep Up...


Erectile dysfunction is a common problem which affects 50% of men over 40 in the UK. If you have trouble maintaining an erection you don’t have to resign yourself to the problem. Try vacuum pumps such as the Active Erection System to give you a little extra 'get up and go'! Penis pumps are able to help 90% of men overcome ED.

If you can get an erection but struggle to maintain it, try an erection ring like the Active Loop Ring. It's completely adjustable for the perfect fit, so you won't even notice it. Erection rings can be worn for up to 30 minutes and will even help you maintain an erection after climax. They're great for men who suffer from premature ejaculation.

5. Let Aromatherapy Get You in the Mood

Smell is a big aphrodisiac, helping you and your partner to set the mood for a night of passion. Our new range of FitAir aromatherapy blends includes FitAir Sensual & Arousing Aromatherapy Oil. Its mix of orange, ylang ylang, patchouli and palma rosa is perfect for that Valentine's Day night in. Why not get the whole FitAir range as a gift with the FitAir Aromatherapy Oils with Carved Wood Storage Box set? Try using them with the FitAir Eden Ultrasonic Aroma Diffuser for an easy and effective aromatherapy experience.

Massages are a great excuse to get up close and personal with your partner, and by relieving tired, knotted and aching muscles you’ll feel much more relaxed and in the mood. FitAir oils can be combined with a carrier oil such as jojoba for use as a massage oil. How romantic!

6. Experiment!


There are loads of intimate gels and lubricants out there to spice things up, so experiment and shake up your boring sex routine with some new sensations. We love YES lubricants because they use all-natural ingredients and formulations which are gentle on your body. If you want to mix things up a bit, try Durex Play O Orgasmic Gel or Intimate Earth Gentle Clitoral Arousal Serum. Both of these products will help you revitalise your sex life!

7. Go Hormone-Free


3.5 million women in the UK rely on the pill as their primary method of contraception. Many of them experience nasty side effects like headaches, high blood pressure, bleeding between periods and loss of sex drive. Go hormone free with FemCap Contraceptive Cap, a revolutionary contraceptive cap that is more comfortable than a diaphragm, easy to insert and remove as you wish and free from side-effects. Combine it with ContraGel, a 100% natural, vegan and hormone-free spermicidal gel.

8. Try Toys


Feeling adventurous? Toys are a great way to prolong foreplay, experiment with sensation and figure out what makes each other tick. Lelo Intimina has created a lovely range of intimate vibrators made from silky-soft silicone and ergonomically designed to be used internally or externally. The Intimina Kalia Couples' Massager is ideal for Valentine's Day fun as it's designed to be used during sex. It will increase sensation for both you and your partner - what a treat!

9. Know Your Cycleintimate flora


Whether you’re trying to conceive or you want to avoid pregnancy, it pays off to know what your body’s up to when it comes to sex. The Valley Electronics Daysy Fertility Monitor is an amazingly high tech way of doing this. It's sort of like a fitness tracker for your period! Just use it to take your temperature every morning and it will tell you where you are in your menstrual cycle. You can then use the free Daysy app to see whether you're ovulating and if your period is about the start. Perfect for natural contraception (or conception!).

10. Keep it Clean

The natural flora of the vagina can easily be unbalanced by lubricants, toys, condoms and even semen. If you often get infections, use Yes Cleanse Intimate Wash to prevent discomfort and maintain a healthy flora. If you are susceptible to recurring BV you may want to try an intimate gel such as Relactagel or Balance Activ after being intimate with your partner to make sure everything is healthy down there.

One last thing... it goes without saying that if you’re having sex with a new partner you should always use protection to avoid sexually transmitted diseases. Treat yourself to some amazingly thin and durable Lelo Hex Condoms for sex that feels condom-free! And you could always do a home Chlamydia Test as a last resort….

 

Enjoy Valentine's Day!
