The state of being comfortable, healthy, or happy.
Many people see sexual health and sexual wellness as separate topics. However, in reality they come hand in hand. Sexual wellness includes your physical health but doesn’t only include sexual aspects. It consist of how you view sex, your happiness, confidence, overall wellbeing and more.
Research Is Key
First things first, do your research. You’re here reading this, so well done. Sexual wellness has many different interpretations and definitions, so finding out what it means to you and how to improve it is essential to making a real change.
Once you understand what sexual wellness is and how to improve it, it’s time for some good old self reflection. Dust off that old journal and answer the following questions. These are a great starting point to talk about with your partners or friends.
What does my sexual wellness mean to me?
How does my sexuality and seual experiences affect my wellbeing? (this can be emotional, physical and/or mental)
What sexual experiences do I want to have/have more of?
What do I enjoy? And what feels good to me?
Once you answer the questions above and reflect on what you want and need, you can communicate them with your partners or friends. These open and comfortable conversations are the first step to making your desires a reality.
Sexual Wellness In The Bedroom. And Out.
Sex impacts and is impacted by our everydays lives. If you’re having a bad mental health week, your mind might not prioritise sex. This is okay! But for maintaining good sexual wellness you must focus on your overall health everyday. Make sure you’re feeling your best so you can feel best in bed.
