Right after getting married a friend of mine came up to me after church and said “Isn’t it great you can have sex whenever you want?” I loved that she thought of this and that she wasn’t afraid to talk about it openly with me. 

 This conversation is to set a tone, to open the door for more amazing passionate love in your life with your partner, while caring for your body in every way. Sex is amazing, but there are sideline moments when your time between the sheets can be painful, or uncomfortable, especially with the wrong kind of lubrication. There is an incredible amount of misinformation about what is safe to use. So I must be frank - ladies, your petal parts (labia, vagina and all) are so precious and picky that you must be careful for what you choose to use. 

 

From my own uncomfortable experiences from lack of adequate vaginal fluids for lubrication that lead to painful friction, to countless stories from friends who said that they were shocked to find that intimacy could actually be painful. Other mama friends of mine find it frustrating if their post baby body isn’t cooperating, or after menopause there is an uncomfortable dryness that must be cared for - I want to make sure you have the best sex with your husband ever.

 

Loving lubrication - between the sheets fun can be incredibly passionate and even more fun using the right kind of lubrication. I’m happy to tell you it’s widely available and 100% natural. Coconut oil. It’s great for your lady parts, safe with condoms, and you can get the fractionated version so there is no waiting for it to melt. Our Liquid Love is made with 100% Pure Fractionated Coconut oil and rose quartz infused for unconditional love.

Facts about your vagina - 

 

When a vagina is healthy, it has the right balance of flora. These are the bacteria that live inside the vagina. The normal vaginal flora are populated by various lactobacillus species, which help the vagina stay healthy by producing lactic acid, hydrogen peroxide, and other substances that inhibit the growth of yeast and other unwanted organisms. They maintain the vagina at a healthy pH of around 4. This mildly acidic environment helps protect against infection.

 

When this pH is knocked out of balance the trouble begins. 

 

Here are 3 simple ways to enjoy your intimacy more, and have happy petals after. 

 

 

  1. Before Intimacy - It’s a good idea if you have been jones’n for your sweetie to give yourself a moment to “open up". Massaging some coconut oil around the labia before you get busy can stimulate and begin the arousal process. Having your hubby massage the area gently with the coconut oil, is also a great way to start. According to How Stuff Works Health - "When a woman becomes sexually aroused, the labia minora become swollen and puffy, which causes salt water to push through the vaginal walls and provide lubrication. In addition, the Bartholin's glands at the vagina's entrance produce lubrication, but in both cases, that moisture is only provided for a few minutes, so additional lubrication may be needed to maintain comfort during sex."
  2. Foreplay fun - Be sure your sweetie applied the coconut oil for lubrication. This is a fun way to arouse him, but will also aid in the enjoyment when penetration actually begins. The more slip the better.  From Marriage 365, (an awesome website focused solely on encouraging healthy marriages states) - "Make the most of foreplay. Foreplay serves a physical and emotional purpose, helping prepare both mind and body for sex. Many women, in particular, need to be kissed, hugged, and caressed to create lubrication in the vagina, which is important for comfortable intercourse. Foreplay takes time, attention to details and creativity leaving you and your spouse more in love and cared for. DO NOT SKIP OUT ON FOREPLAY!"
  3. After care and daily wellness - After your incredible playtime, be sure to care for those beautiful petals. Only if necessary rinsing with warm water is better than washing or additional rubbing with a cloth. Skip the soap!! Soap will throw the healthy vaginal flora off balance quickly, especially after the friction of intercourse. Moisturizing the vagina and labia is highly recommended to soothe the area especially if you have experienced any discomfort. Daily if you deal with vaginal dryness of any kind, it is a great way to offer yourself love by applying the oil to comfort and sooth the area. It doesn’t leave any residue on your undergarments and will leave you more comfortable during the day. This is something that you rarely hear as a key to positive vaginal wellness, but is a must if you are experiencing dryness or discomfort especially after naturally birthing. 

 

 Beauty and self love come hand in hand. Sadly the vagina is one highly neglected area that needs lots of tender care for positive sexual wellness. We will continue to discuss this topic over the next two months to open the door to women to feel more freedom to know their bodies better.
