Genital Herpes

Genital herpes is one of the most common sexually transmitted diseases (STD) that can be contracted by any sexually active person. A lot of individuals affected with the virus show no symptoms. Even without showing any symptoms or signs of illness, herpes can still be transmitted to sexual partners. Herpetic sores occur as a result of genital herpes and one of the features of herpetic sore is painful blisters (fluid-filled bumps) which can break and discharge fluid

Herpes viruses are of two types and they are responsible for the causes of genital herpes. The viruses are referred to as herpes simplex virus type 1 (HSV-1) and herpes simplex virus type 2 (HSV-2).

In some parts of the world such as the United States, genital herpes is common and it affects more than one in six people that lie between the ages of 14 and 49.

How is genital herpes transmitted?

You can contract genital herpes by having vaginal, anal or oral sex with a person suffering from it.

If you don’t suffer from herpes, you may become infected if you come into contact with the herpes virus in:

  • A herpes sore;
  • Saliva (if your partner has oral herpes infection) or genital secretion (if your partner has genital herpes infection);
  • Skin in your mouth if your partner has oral herpes infection or skin in the genital area if your partner has a genital herpes infection.

It is possible for you to get herpes from a sexual partner that does not have a visible sore or those that does not know they have been infected with the virus. It is also possible to contract genital herpes if you have oral sex with a sexual partner suffering from oral herpes.

Getting infected with herpes from places such as the toilet seats, bedding or swimming pools, or touching of objects surrounding you, such as silverware, soap or towels is not common. In the event that you have any additional questions on how herpes spreads, meeting and discussing your doctor should be put into consideration.

How to reduce your chance of getting infected with genital herpes?

One of the best ways to avoid been infected with STDs is to avoid vaginal, anal or oral sex.

In the event that you are sexually active, you can do the following to reduce your chances of getting genital herpes:

  • getting involved in a long-term mutually monogamous relationship with a partner that has not been infected with STD (for example, a partner who has been tested and has negative STD test results);
  • Make use of latex condom properly each time you are having sex.

 

How to diagnose genital herpes

Conducting a visual examination of the herpes sore by your doctor is the ways to diagnose herpes. Although not always necessary, your doctor can confirm the diagnosis by laboratory tests.

Performing a blood test in the laboratory can be used to diagnose herpes simplex virus before you encounter an epidemic. Check with your doctor if you think you have been exposed to genital herpes, even if you have no symptoms.

How to treat genital herpes?

Treatment can reduce the epidemic but cannot cure you of the herpes simplex virus.

Medications

Antiviral drugs can help you quickly cure wounds and reduce pain. You can take medications at the first sign of an epidemic (tingling, itching and other symptoms) in order to reduce the symptoms. People who experience epidemics may also be prescribed drugs to mitigate the risk of future outbreaks.

Home care

In order to treat herpes using homegrown methods, make use of a mild cleaning agent when bathing or showering in warm water. Keep the infected area clean and dry. Wear removed cotton clothing to make the area comfortable.

Herpes may not be dangerous like HIV, but it will still make you uncomfortable and it will affect your life seriously. You may not be able to avoid it 100% but you may try your best to lower the risk with just a little effort.

Something About Female Sexuality – Female Orgasm

Men should take comfort from the facts of female sexuality. It is difficult for most women to orgasm from intercourse alone, and yet amazingly few women ask about lack of orgasm. In addition to the obvious personal embarrassment, likely explanations include:

Not every woman is even interested in sex, either by masturbation or from a sexual relationship. Relatively few women masturbate, and so many women never know what an orgasm is. Some women assume that they orgasm during sex when, in fact, they don’t. Others accept that sex involves pleasing their man rather than looking for their own sexual pleasure.

The irony is that women who ask about lack of orgasm have the confidence to question because they have explored their sexuality more than most women, both with or without a partner. Regardless of her sexual expectations, any woman will offer her partner sex when she feels good about the relationship and loving towards her partner. They are looking for feeling of intimacy instead of orgasm, the cuddling or caress part maybe the best part in whole process of sexual intercourse for her.

After spending a romantic (affectionate and companionable) evening together, sharing emotional intimacy, or even after an emotional movie, a woman can feel amenable to having sex. Women just take longer time to warm up; compare to men, they can heat up in just split second.

However, these stimuli are very different from those she needs to achieve orgasm (sexual fantasies involve explicit eroticism). Unfortunately, Mother Nature does not favour about female orgasm. As long as a woman is amenable to having sex, the job is done!

Emotional intimacy

The film ‘Overboard’ stars Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell, her real-life partner. Goldie plays a spoilt rich young wife who loses her memory and, purely out of revenge, Kurt playing a lowly carpenter pretends that she is married to him, with his four children.

Sexual relationships favor male orgasm, and it is clear that he would have little problem having sex with this woman he hardly knows and even dislikes. It is equally clear that she would consider it out of the question to have sex with a man she cannot remember knowing.

“Men are most comfortable expressing love through sex, through shared activities, through being a good provider, and through just being together…”

Later in the story, they get to know each other and one evening, pretending that it is her birthday, they go out on a date. After dancing, they talk and gaze at the evening sky while romantic music plays. They kiss and, on returning home, ‘make love’ for the first time.

“98 percent of the women… said they would like more verbal closeness with the men they love; they want the men in their lives to talk more about their thoughts, emotions, plans, and to question them about theirs.”

The woman now feels affection for the man and finds him physically attractive. Of course, he always was attractive, but he suddenly appeals because she respects him and cares for him. Perhaps it is as self-evident to women that relationships are about companionship as it is to men that they are about physical intimacy. In fact, both are part of a long-term relationship.

Sex Games

It is not far-fetched these days to hear couples complain of having a boring sexual life. Couples and those in relationships complain of their partner’s infidelity, while some will always use the sentence “it used to be interesting before but all of a sudden, it is now as boring as watching two old people quarrel”. It is never easy to keep the rush of sexual pleasure every night. You may be pondering upon the phrase “boring sexual life”, it definitely means no foreplay, and paying less attention to the mental and psychological state of your partner, all you just want to do is have sex with her and get done with without even thinking of making memory with it.

Sex is repetitive most times. In carrying out sexual activities, the brain is the biggest sex organ as it must be stimulated so as to get the best out of the intercourse. If the brain is stimulated, then your partner will become hornier, then you can enjoy and at the same time create wonderful experience together.

Sex games triggers the excitement that lies ahead in sex. If your sex partner is not your enemy which he or she will definitely never be, then playing games will definitely heighten the pleasure in sexuality. There are different games that must be considered if you want to take your sex life to another level. Role playing; In this type of game, both partners adopt different roles and acts as strangers. They act out unscripted roles and adopts the use of raunchy and kinky languages which is directly stimulating their psychology and getting them ready for intercourse.

Another game that can be played by couples or sexual partners is Reenacting Pornography. In reenacting pornography, both of them may be on the bed or couch or anywhere they feel they are comfortable in. They watch some pornography movies together and act or do as it is being done on set. This may be difficult because those actors are paid and trained to do just that, but when couples watch it, they carry out some of the styles and even laugh over it.

Another sex games that increases sensation in the body of your partner is the blindfold game. In this type of game, one of the partner is being blind folded and the other that is not on blindfold has the luxury of exploiting the partners body. This will send better sensation than when the eyes are being open because the partner cannot predict where will be touched which sends sensations all through the body.

Another game that may be considered by couples who want to enjoy sex once again is the truth or dare. Truth or dare is a game that involves spinning bottle in between the partners, and the partner the bottle will spin towards will be asked to do some things which should be romantic, from taking of clothes, panties and other romantic things that could be thought of.

The major reason sex game is important in relationship is because it builds up sexual pressure which leads to the act itself.

7 Healthy Reasons to Have Sex

We think about sex. We fantasize about sex. We spend an inordinate amount of time and money in the pursuit for sex. We have sex. Pleasure is not the only benefit we get underneath the sheet. The mental and physical benefits of a healthy sex life extend far beyond the bedroom. Researchers, scientists, and medical professionals have made it their mission to study exactly how sex improves nearly every facet of life. So, let’s check out some healthy reasons to have sex regularly:

 

Improved Heart Health and Exercise

Sex can strengthen muscle tone and also increase heart rate. Just like any physical exercise, healthy sex is good for your heart. A study published in January 2015 in the “American Journal of Cardiology” found that men who had sex twice weekly or more had less risk of cardiovascular diseases, like strokes or heart attack, than those who had sex once a month or less. Similarly, sex can actually be considered a rather good form of exercise :A small study published in October 2013 in the “Journal PLoS One” showed that men burned an average of 4 calories a minute during sex while  women burned off 3 calories. That is more fun than hitting the gym

 

Sweet Pain Relief

According to researchers “Pain sometimes has to do with blood flowing to one particular area, like the head, and sex can take some of that pressure off by redirecting the flow”. Endorphins released during orgasm likely play a role in sex pain-relieving power. In another study published in PLoS One that was performed at Stanford University in California, anesthesiologists showed participants photos their romantic partners. They found that looking at romantic partners significantly eradicates the experience of pain. Although, you might think pain is a barrier to sex; consider this a sex benefit worth the time and effort. Other studies have found that women may get some relief from menstrual cramps through an intense orgasm.

 

Less Stress and Lower Body Pressure

Sex can help relieve stress by raising endorphins and other hormones that boost mood. As a form of exercise, it can also help calm you down. In addition, a Scottish study published in the journal _Biological Psychology_ found that sexual activity prevents increases in blood pressure during stressful events. While this effect was more pronounced in people who had sex with penetration, non-penetrative sex can also help you stay unclouded.

 

Possible Reduction of Prostate Cancer

Sex may protect against cancer. A study published in December 2016 in the journal _European Urology_ found that men who ejaculate more than 21 times within a month, compared with those who do so four to seven times within a month, are 20 percent less likely to develop prostate cancer, this shows that men who ejaculate regularly may reduce their risk of prostate cancer. Similarly, a French study found that women who have sex at least once in a month are less likely to develop breast cancer than those who didn’t. Although the disease is rare in men, those who orgasm less than six times a month appear to be at increased risk of breast cancer compared to those who do so more often, according to a Greek study.

 

Better Sleep with a Bonus: Increased Sexual Desire

According to the _National Sleep Foundation_  orgasms release the hormone prolactin, which can help you feel sleepy and relaxed. So, don’t be too surprised if you and your partner doze off shortly after a satisfying session and wake up feeling refreshed. This sleep connection also works in reverse. According to a study published in May 2015 in the Journal of Sexual Medicine getting enough shut-eye can improve your sexual response and may increase the chance that you will engage regularly in sex. Researchers discovered that when women slept for longer period of time, they recovered greater sexual desire the next day.

 

Happier Mood and a Stronger Relationship

Oxytocin, also known as the love hormone, is released during physical intimacy and skin-to-skin contact; it can help increase romantic feelings between you and your partner. It is no wonder that you have got a more positive outlook after sex. There are biochemical rationales for experiencing improved mood as a sex benefit, from the neurotransmitters that may be released during sex to the mood enhancers contained in semen itself. According to Dr. Caron, “there is a lot to be said simply for the mood-boosting effect of having a nice connection with somebody that you trust and care about. In addition, researchers found that partners were satisfied for a full 48 hours after sexual activity, and those who were lucky enough to experience this afterglow went on to report more happiness in their relationship several months later.

 

Glowing Younger -Looking Skin

The fable “morning after” glow is not just your imagination; you really do look better after having sex. According to Dr. Caron, “Sex even helps you look younger”, that glow can be attributed to a combination of stress relief, better mood, and the flush of blood under your skin is a natural part of the arousal process. Sex boosts blood flow and helps regulate hormones, which can both have positive effects on skin’s appearance

Enjoying a better sex life is one of the great joys in life. Intimacy is a boost to your long term health as well, make it more pleasurable.

Taking care of your sexual health

Sex is not all about having a mind-blowing, orgasm filled, and satisfying sex. It is a little more than that. There are so many things involved with having sex which includes the sexual organs, reproduction, infections, STDs and so on. If you have decided to live a sexually active life, then you would need to take responsibility for your actions. Here are some aspects of sexual health you should know about:

What sex entails

This talks about the whole essence of sex, beginning from the desire to have it, how to get stimulated and your response or reaction to it. Knowing the basics will enable you to have a clear understanding of what you are getting into so you don’t become confused or frustrated at some events that may occur during sex.

The reproductive cycle

One of the reasons for having sex is for reproduction. But is this the reason most people have sex? No. people just want to feel good and have orgasms. Identify what you want out of sex. Do you want babies? Learn how to track your cycle and what things that are required of you to do in order to have a healthy pregnancy. You don’t want to make babies? Get information about ways to prevent conception during sex. Birth controls, condoms, vasectomy and so on are tools you can use to be on a safe side.

Erectile dysfunction

This is one issue that disturbs men of all ages. Knowing about the causes of erectile dysfunction and prevention will help you have a better sex life. No one wants to be with a guy that can’t get or sustain an erection. It would end up making you and your partner frustrated. So help everyone and get yourself informed.

Higher Libido

Sexual desire varies which could cause one partner to desire sex more often than the other. This is often mistaken as sex addiction but they are quite different. Know how to reduce your libido to match that of your partner could reduce the conflict most couples have because of this issue. You could also get someone with a libido as high as yours.

Vaginal dryness

One of the struggles of women who are either pregnant or are in their menopause. This could cause friction between partners as one party might not have a desire for sex and the other might not even feel satisfied because of the dryness of the vagina. Knowing what to do in such situations like getting a lubricant in form of a tube or condom might fix the problem. Consulting your doctor at this time will also be appropriate.

Guarding against infection

This entails learning about the different types as well as consequences of infection should be first on the list. This is followed by prevention which deals with taking necessary steps to prevent sexually transmitted diseases or infections. Prevention is important to limit the spread of these diseases thereby protecting your health and that of others. You should also know about getting a test for STDs. How often should you get a test and why it is important to be tested? Then, you need to know how to live with STDs if you have contracted one.

Morning Sex- Better Sexual Health

Before you jump out of your bed and start preparing to leave the house in order to meet up with resumption hours, don’t you think you should take a dose of happiness first? The outside world can be very stressful you know.

Now, morning sex isn’t the time to reflect on how hectic the day would be. It is to help you have a good start which will make you be on your best behavior throughout the day. Why is it important to have morning sex? Let’s find out!

It wakes you up

So your eyes are open, but you can’t really see even when your sex partner is giving you a blow job or an intense head. That is because in the morning when the alarm sounds or you wake up by yourself, you are still feeling all dizzy and fuzzy. The brain is still relaxed and so your mental alertness is still on the low till your partner slides into you, then after a few strokes, you become aware of your environment. Now going back to the moment before the few strokes, those are the moments you will want to live in for the rest of your life. When you feel like you are in a dream getting laid with zero things on your mind. That is what morning sex does for you. It gives you a good waking up.

It makes sex fun

Everything about morning sex is fun! From the tousled hair to the scattered bed, smelly breathe (which you should be used to by now), you are in a relaxed state with just your partner and the quiet room. The most appropriate thing to do at this point is a quickie, a way of saying, “Let me get a taste of you before we get too busy”. And a wonderful taste it would be as it would keep her/him lingering in your thoughts all day long. Sexual fantasies sexy hot secretary or 6 packs guy at the office has got nothing on you when you empty your tank before leaving home. Having fun in sex equals better sexual health and sexual relationship.

Everything looks bright and beautiful

This would be your mood after you’ve had a romantic morning sex. That cuddle hormone you released during the sex is not for nothing you know. Morning sex makes you start your day on a positive note and keep you happy all day. Just make sure you hid that smile that will play on your lips when you think about how you woke up. You sure don’t want your boss to ask you what‘s the smile for.

Keeps you in shape

Morning sex could make up for that exercise routine you didn’t do yesterday evening because you were tired. Sex burns calories and what better way to start your morning than with a lightweight. It is easier to burn five calories every minute during sex than walking from block to block.

If you feel like you don’t have enough time in the morning to get a quick one from your partner, why don’t you plan for it by setting your alarm 25 minutes earlier than the normal time? It’s really worth it for your body shape and better sexual health. Also, you can use mints to combat that morning breath!

Touching Erogenous Zones for Maximum Sexual Pleasure

Sex is more than just bouncing thrusting and grinding. It is more about the soulful connection of two bodies. And no, I am not referring to soul ties. What I am saying is, sex is better when the two parties involved are totally connected with each other, appreciating and being more involved in each part of the body not just the reproductive organs. To derive that satisfying and fulfilling sex, one which your partner would look you in the eyes and say, “Thank you, I loved it”, then you might want to do more than just thrusting.

What more should you do than thrusting? Touch every erogenous zone that will make your partner go wild with sexual pleasure and hunger for more. Let’s take a look at some of the erogenous zones that are often neglected.

Breasts

Most men will always mention the breast when asked of what they desire in a woman’s figure. But then, you’d wonder why they often neglect it during sex, probably because they are eager to get into the thrusting game to show off their manliness. Sex shouldn’t be that way; unless it’s a quickie. If you are down for a full time sex, then you should go through the foreplay process which should involve the breasts. Licking and gently sucking the nipples, areolas, while grabbing the full breasts would give your partner the first orgasm before the main sex. Women should also lick their partner’s nipples, they are sensitive too. Sucking the nipple and the area around a man’s chest also gives them sexual pleasure and strength to go through with the sex.

The balls

For the ladies, you might want to give your man a blow job to get him all prepped up for thrusting. While concentrating on the sausage, don’t forget the surroundings. Your man might not want to tell you, but he also derives great joy from getting his balls sucked too, albeit gently. You can go down from the tip of the penis, glide your tongue slowly down to the base of his penis, taking in his balls one after the other in your mouth while stroking the sausage. Real good sex experiences with this oral sex move.

Neck

This is a spot when handled perfectly, makes your partner emit loud moans. Using the tip of your tongue to glide up and down (in a slow motion), the sides of your partners neck while cradling the head like that of a baby will make your partner secrete fluids prepping the sexual organs for deep thrusting. You can also kiss, blow or better still, suck the base of the neck for greater impact.

The ears

Want your partner harder down there and probably get goose bumps too? Then a quick lick on the outer lobe of the ear will do the trick. The ear is another sensitive part of the body which gives a reaction when touched, licked or nibbled. It could even make your partner jerk, resulting in a hard on.

Back of the Knee

This is another part you might want to try out to see your partner’s reaction which is often a soothing one. You can kiss it slowly working your way to the laps or you can just touch or massage it.

Smoking and sex

There used to be a time when it was considered beneficial for your health to smoke. That’s right, the tobacco industry had it really well back in the day – people from all walks of life were starting to smoke cigarettes. But as time went on, it became obvious that this was a rosy image of the reality. Serious side effects were discovered by scientists and medical experts when it comes to smoking. And one of the ways in which smoking can affect your life is through the ruining of your sex drive.

Many people would say that smoking half a pack of cigarettes daily is not that big of a deal. After all, we’re not talking about a lot of cigarettes. And while it’s infinitely better to smoke half a pack of cigarettes than two packs of cigarettes on a daily basis – it still doesn’t mean that it’s all right to smoke at all.

In fact, it has been shown that even a few cigarettes a day can have an adverse effect on your sexual health. Your goal should be to decrease the number of cigarettes you’re smoking, and in best case scenario, to quit smoking altogether.

The way smoking can ruin your sexual health is through wrecking your cardiovascular health. Time and time against it’s been shown that smoking is very bad for your heart. And the heart plays a powerful function when it comes to our libido – for example, the heart pumps blood into the penis in the case of men, and this helps it become erect. If your blood vessels become damaged from the smoke of cigarettes that you have inhaled for years on end, then this may ruin the process of achieving a hard erection for men. It’s very much similar in the case of women as well.

There’s also another important part that many people miss when it comes to smoking and sex. Smokers have notoriously bad breaths. If you ask any person to describe a smoker’s breath, then chances are that they’ll use terms such as “disgusting” and “stinky”. How do you think this relates to your partner’s sexual drive? It’s not very conducive towards getting aroused if you smell someone’s breath and it smells of cigarettes. So, there’s another way in which smoking can improve your sexual life.

It’s also scientifically shown that smoking has a detrimental role in your fertility as well. If you wish to one day have children, then ceasing your habit of smoking is one of the best things that you could do to this end.

And in the end, smoking is not only bad for your sex life, but also for your overall health as well. There are many ways in which smoking damages your body. Your lungs suffer, your heart suffers, your blood vessels suffer. In fact, all the organs in your body suffer from your habit of smoking. The best thing to do here is to quit and quit for good. Sure, it won’t be easy, but in the end, it will be well worth your effort.
