Sexual Intercourse and Personal Hygiene

Enjoying a healthy sex life means not only having sexual intercourse with your spouse, but making sure to avoid infections, STDs and odors. Never underestimate the importance of cleanliness in the bedroom, guaranteeing a happy and healthy physical relationship. In this article, Bilqees will list four habits to guarantee a healthy sex life.

For women, it’s essential to cleanse both the vaginal and anal area frequently, making sure to avoid transferring any bacteria or fecal matter to the vagina by wiping front to back. Be sure to use a gentle cleanser, otherwise you risk drying out the vaginal area and creating an optimal environment for fungal and bacterial infections. Maintaining a clean bedroom and bed sheets also goes a long way in preventing the spread of unwanted germs.

Couples should be sure to wash their hands and under their fingernails both before and after intercourse. Our hands come into contact with millions of germs a day and you don’t want to transfer them to you or your spouse’s very sensitive private areas. This is especially pertinent to women who have long fingernails where bacteria and fungus accumulates.

Trimming or removing pubic hairs is a must, particularly in the summer where intense heat combined with thick hair results in skin infections or inflammation and even warts. Removing body hair from other parts of the body is a bonus and both husbands and wives should ask their spouses which parts of the body they would prefer to be hair-free.

Shower regularly and use antiperspirants and deodorants to help deal with underarm odors. Use perfume and cologne in moderation, keeping in mind that too much is just as bad as none at all. Asking your spouse what his/her favorite kind is a bonus, since our sense of smell is closely related to our memory. Using the perfume/cologne that brings back romantic memories is always a plus.

Above all, stay healthy. Mention any changes, redness or growths around your private areas to both your physician and your spouse so they can be on the lookout for any detrimental effects to themselves and you can both get the treatment you need.
