How to Improve Your Sex Life

Food and sex are two basic human needs. It's no surprise that people like to combine these two for added pleasure. An aphrodisiac is any product that stimulates and increases libido. Chocolate, oysters, avocado, red pepper, ginseng, honey, strawberries, and nuts are considered the best aphrodisiac foods. However, according to recent studies, only ginseng has been proven effective in combating sexual problems in men. All other aphrodisiac foods for women and men contain either substances that improve mood (chocolate and chili peppers), vitamins (honey — vitamin B, avocado — vitamin E, strawberries — vitamin C) and minerals (oysters and nuts contain zinc) that are good for the body.

Kegel exercises were designed for strengthening the pelvic muscles. Women have noticed that sensation during sexual intercourse became more intense after doing Kegel exercises. These exercises can positively impact intimacy and sexual pleasure for both partners. Women’s strong muscles contribute to a more intense orgasm. Men’s sensations are enhanced by a tight compression of the penis in the vagina due to its acquired elasticity. In order to fully explore the benefits of Kegel exercises, stop your urine stream as it is flowing by contracting the muscles of the pelvic floor. It is enough to contract and relax those muscles for a set of 10 reps 3 times a day. You can do the exercise at any time — at the workplace, while driving, or lying on the couch with a book.

Researchers assert that participation with a partner in high adrenaline activities (watching a thriller, riding a roller coaster, climbing, etc.) produces hormones that cause arousal. During stressful situations, adrenaline is released into the blood. Thereafter, the brain produces dopamine — a pleasure hormone that rewards the body for overcoming stress. After sexual activity, the affection given to your partner will certainly intensify. If you are not a thrill-seeker, exercise with your partner. The effect will be similar.

Talking to your partner after sex can improve your relationship. Discussing your fantasies or things you enjoy can benefit your relationship and love life. If you can engage in frank personal pillow talk for couples, you will see positive effects. All the tips for healthy sex life are quite simple. Be open, honest to your partner, and don’t hesitate to experiment! Together you’ll find the key to the best sex of your life. If you struggle, though, consider going to a therapist together.
