What does sex have to do with your heart health? Sex can have a major impact on your health, both mentally and physically. The benefits can be positive or negative depending on many factors not limited to your current health condition, sexual activities and hygiene, whether you’re monogamous or promiscuous, and so on.
Now that we are in February, the month of L.O.V.E., I want to talk about how sex can help your heart and overall health. Now with everything in life, this notion has several caveats to keep in mind. Unprotected sex/fellatio, sex with multiple partners, poor sexual hygiene, promiscuity, and unsafe fetishes are actions that can have a profound and negative impact on your health and your heart……your bank account, reputation and mental state for that matter!
Assuming that you are in a healthy and stable relationship, many physicians agree that sex is good for your health. Benefits that can be enjoyed from being more sexually active include:
According to WebMD feature article, 10 Surprising Health Benefits of Sex, sex can even help your immune system! With all of these benefits why not get busy more often! Sex is often portrayed in a negative or frivolous manner in media throughout our society. However, I want to make sure that we acknowledge that sex is a normal adult activity and when healthy, consenting adults, sharing in a stable relationship engage in this normal activity, we should acknowledge the benefits that can be gained. Let’s keep on loving folks; Valentine’s Day is right around the corner! Boost your heart health with a little more sex. Need help with setting the mood?

What is Healthy Loving? Well, healthy loving to me is a combination of many things. Let’s see, a good baseline to start from is being of sound mind and judgment while choosing to participate in sexual activity with a partner or yourself. Then ensuring that your own body and your partner are healthy enough to partake in the sexual activity desired. I would also recommend having accurate knowledge about safe sex and healthy sexual practices. You may be thinking “Really?” in a very sarcastic tone. To that I would say “Really.” in a very serious tone. You would be amazed at how many yeast infections could be prevented if people only washed their hands before touching their sensitive spots; or using lubricant instead of spit. If you choose to use adult toys or massagers as I like to call them, make sure you know what constitutes a body safe product. Different materials used in the manufacturing of toys, lubricants, and materials can cause irritation, infections and other adverse reactions to occur. There are so many tips and tricks, that it can be overwhelming to decide what massager to use or what advice to heed. It is also easy to succumb to bad habits in the heat of passion. In this new year I hope to help take some of the guess work out of intimacy. I chose to continue as a BK consultant because Bedroom Kandi has released several new products to augment the already excellent boutique line that focuses on body safe products and education about practicing healthy intimacy behaviors. This is a great time to upgrade your skills and knowledge. I plan to enhance my own intimacy repertoire and hope that my journey inspires and assists you in your journey to engage in better, healthier, and safer intimate experiences.
