Sex is our expression of love towards our partner. We have to satisfy our partner through our maximum performance.
But it doesn’t end there, we should always practice sexual health and hygiene. The absence of sexual hygiene can affect not just your performance, but your whole sex life.
Here are 8 tips that you should consider for your sexual hygiene to have a better sex life:
Always Wash and Dry
It is a must that we should always wash ourselves, especially our genital region. Unlike women who need a feminine wash, men only need wash and soap to do the cleaning and disinfecting.
It is also important that you clean or wash every after sweaty activities. Lastly, to avoid jock itch, make sure that you dry after bathing, sweating and swimming.
Change Underwear Daily
As much as we need to change our clothes daily, it is also a must for men to change underwear on a daily basis, or every after sweaty activities.
This can help avoid odor, infections, and irritations. A smarter choice for an underwear is those cotton-made to provide more comfort for our genitals.
It is a good habit to check your own penis and testicles for any irregularities. Check if there are bumps, sores, blisters, redness, and warts. These irregularities may indicate STDs, cancer and other health problems.
Trim Your Pubic Hair
Do not let your pubic hair turn into a large bush. Long pubic hair may intervene into your intercourse. It is important to trim down your pubic hair.
However, it is advisable that you do not shave your pubic hair to the roots. According to a study, pubic hair may help your genitals stay clean and warm. Body hairs are also believed to diffuse pheromones which help people feel attraction.
Avoid Fit Pants
Allow your genitals to breath by avoiding super fit and skinny pants and jeans. A looser fit is better for proper functioning down there.
Fit pants can cause overheating which can affect fertility and can cause infection. Further, underwear should never be too fit as well to avoid restriction of genitals.
Be Sure and Safe
We know that you trust your partners so much, but it is always important to be sure and safe first.
There may be infections that we cannot see to our naked eye. If you have not tested yet, it is a safe choice to use a condom during intercourse to avoid further infections.
Communicate With Your Partner
Always ask your partner about their sexual health. Also, check your partner’s hygiene. It is important that both of you practice good sexual hygiene for you to enjoy sex.
Consult a Doctor
The best option to be sure about our sexual health is to consult a doctor. Get routine check-ups with your partner. Do not be shy to tell your doctor about your problems, they are there to help you, not discriminate you.
Some STDs and other genital infections do not show symptoms. Only doctors can determine the health of your genitals.
Lastly, demand an HIV test or other examinations that may identify any existence of infection in your genitals.
