Sex is a beautiful thing, no doubt but could be ruined sometimes when couples indulge in certain undoings before getting down.
Asides the maximum pleasure derived, there are actually so many health benefits of sex to the human system.
If you want to enjoy a sizzling sex with your partner, then you really should avoid certain things which might hamper the expected result.
DON’T EAT TOO MUCH OR CONSUME ENERGY DRINKS:
Try as much as you can to avoid stuffing your stomach with more food than it deserves. This doesn’t mean you should starve but try as much as possible to keep everything as normal as ever.
Of course sex is such a rigourous activity that demands some energy but findings have shown that it is better to eat snacks, nuts or light food before doing ‘it’ to avoid feeling drowsy.
Heavy, gassy and high-fibre food could eventually slow down one’s performance. And how about messing up the supposed romantic environment with a fart? That’s a huge turn off. You see why you should steer clear right.
Apart from the negative effect smoking has on the heart, it turns out that it also has an effect on people’s sexual performance. It could reduce libido as it lowers testosterone (sex hormone) levels, hence, people are advised not to smoke before sex. The same applies to taking alcohols. According to a sexual health expert, Dr. Vijaysarathi Ramanathan, smoking could affect a man’s erection. He said, “Smoking affects almost every system/organ of the body including sexual functioning. People need to understand that erection in men has a lot to do with a healthy heart, blood vessels and good blood flow. So anything that affects blood flow will definitely affect the erection.”
The fear of putting their partners off the mood might force some people to shave or wax their pubic regions before sex but sex experts have warned that it is a huge no – no.
As much as being ‘clean’ in that region is seen as a good hygienic practice, experts have advised that it is advisable not to shave before sex, simply because shaving or waxing tends to open up the small pores in the skin and while the sexual activity is ongoing, body contact could lead to infection, or rashes, which could multiply in little time because the place is usually warm and so germs and bacteria could multiply there quickly. Some people shave shortly before sex because of the feeling that their partner might find the pubic hair unattractive.
A medical doctor, Emily Gibson, said removal of pubic hair would always inflame the hair follicles in that region and leave some open wounds that could cause irritation of the shaved or waxed area, leading to the spread of sexually transmitted infections.
She added, “When that irritation is combined with the warm moist environment of the genitals, it becomes a happy culture media for some of the nastiest of bacterial pathogens, namely group A streptococcus, staphylococcus aureus and its recently mutated cousin, methicillin resistant staph aureus.
“There is an increase in staph boils and abscesses, necessitating incisions to drain the infection, resulting in scarring that can be significant. It is not at all unusual to find pustules and other hair follicle inflammation papules on shaved genitals.
“Additionally, I’ve seen cellulitis, soft tissue bacterial infection without abscess of the scrotum, labia and penis from spread of bacteria from shaving or from sexual contact with strep or staph bacteria from a partner’s skin. And some clinicians are finding that freshly shaved pubic areas and genitals are also more vulnerable to herpes infections due to the microscopic wounds being exposed to virus carried by mouth or genitals. It follows that there may be vulnerability to spread of other STIs as well.”
