When it’s time to slide into bed with a partner, many women experience unnecessary apprehensions. The way sex is depicted in movies, adult films and even women’s magazines is enough to make a confident woman feel some anxiety.
It’s common to worry about: what you look like, how you smell and “taking too long.”
Because stressing about these things can decrease your pleasure, let’s talk about why you really shouldn’t worry about them at all!
Your partner wants to have sex with you. Comparing your body to other people makes no sense since your partner is with you and not someone else.
That being said, if you’re concerned about specific parts of your appearance you can address those issues by wearing sexy lingerie that hides the areas that you’re not comfortable with. If you’re concerned about grooming down below try to get on a schedule that ensures you’re feeling neat and well groomed most of the time.
Being groomed down below also serves the purpose of preventing sweat and bacteria from building up near your vagina causing an unpleasant odor.
How You Smell
As long as you don’t have an infection, you probably smell normal down below. The vagina cleans itself and doesn’t require douching or any other method of cleaning on your part.
If you’ve had a long, active day and have gotten sweaty you may have a small odor. While sweat itself is odorless, when it mixes with your skin an odor can develop.
To increase your confidence and ensure there are no unusual odors use Swipes intimacy wipes before sex. They are pH-balanced, gentle and all natural, making them perfect for us down below. They can also be used for clean-up after sex making them a win-win product!
If you notice a fishy or really unpleasant odor coming from your vaginal region it’s time to visit the doctor. You may have an infection, which is totally normal and nothing to be embarrassed about. Your doctor can help you rid yourself of the infection quickly with a pill, cream or other form of treatment. Once your infection is treated you won’t have to stress about odors any longer!
Taking “Too Long”
Do not stress about taking too long to orgasm. First of all, stress makes it harder to orgasm, so by stressing you’re sabotaging yourself. Second, and more importantly, you’re not taking too long.
Jenny Block, author of O Wow: Discovering Your Ultimate Orgasm, says “There’s no such thing as ‘taking too long.’ The average woman needs 20-30 minutes of play to lead her to an orgasm… Don’t apologize. Don’t rush.”
Just enjoy the process!
