Sex can be loads of fun if done right.
However, there are some things that can put a damper on what would have been an otherwise mind-blowing session while other things can put you at risk of unbearable and itchy infections like UTIs.
Today we bring you seven things that you shouldn’t do before to sex to ensure that you have a good sesh in the sack.
To start us off is:
Drink Too Much
While a little drinking will have you removing your panties and rearing to go, too much drinking will make you feel sick, make it hard to maintain an erection, hard to orgasm and can lead to vaginal dryness.
Alcohol is also a depressant so you should avoid too much of it as it will leave you feeling low.
We often hear that we should pee before sex so that when he hits the G-spot you can squirt with wild abandon.
Some experts, however, warn against this as this can put you at risk of contracting a UTI. This is because after sex you need to clear your urethra through peeing to get rid of germs forced in during sex, and if you pee before, you will not have any urine to help you clear out the germs.
Eat A Heavy Meal
Overeating will leave you bloated, sluggish, nauseated and can dampen the mood.
“Eating too much causes you to be bloated and, well, not totally in the mood move around, but it can also be a problem sexually. Both men and women need blood to flow to their sexual organs, and if the body is digesting a large meal, the blood is going there instead of other places,” explains Dawn Michael a clinical sexologist.
They may relieve your discomfort but will also dry out your vagina and this will leave you susceptible to burning and itching due to dry sex.
Mouth odour is generally a non-attractive thing so you can imagine smelling of weed or cigarettes when making love.
Not a good look!
In addition, the smoke can seep out of your pores and genitals making your fluids taste a little bit funny.
Eat Problematic Food
Eating food like beans, cabbage, onions and milk can cause bloating and farting. Believe me, no one wants to turn into a fart machine during a lovemaking session.
Also, avoid spicy food as they can give you heartburn. Beware of foods like garlic and drinks like coffee which can affect vaginal odour and taste.
Shaving your genitals right before sex puts you at risk of contracting STIs, irritation during sex and discomfort due to microscopic cuts.
In a blog post, Emily Gibson MD explains the risk of shaving before sex.
“Some clinicians are finding that freshly shaved pubic areas and genitals are also more vulnerable to herpes infections due to the microscopic wounds being exposed to virus carried by mouth or genitals,’ she says.
