We women are usually the planners, the hostesses, the chefs, personal shoppers… I could go on and on but you know this already! A state of well being for women can be hard to achieve so it’s time for a huge woman to woman health tip!
With all the pressures, sometimes we start to feel less than sexy, especially for women mid life who may be experiencing hormonal fluctuations as well. There is a huge downside of losing your desire to have sex in that orgasms are great for your health: they help reduce stress AND they make you feel amazing. They release endorphins (aka the happy hormones) into your system, lowering blood pressure and even helping you sleep (something that is often in short supply for women mid life!).
But what’s a woman to do if you’re between partners, your dance card is empty, or your partner is even busier than you are? Sounds like its time to go shopping… for a vibrator! Trust us, it’s the gift that just keeps on giving. It can help spice up your relationship and it can be put in a drawer and ignored without questions whenever you want.
Need some convincing? Here is some straight talk about vibrators and sex:
If you are like 70% of women (that is 7 out of 10 of us!), you may have a difficult time having an orgasm from penetration alone. A vibrator is not only great for solo play but a lot of fun for couples play. No man wants to see his partner unhappy or unfulfilled in the bedroom and you can bet he will be willing and maybe even thrilled to try out a toy that will get you where you need to go!
Vibrators have come a long way! Many are designed by woman-owned companies who actually put some thought into creating products that work for women’s bodies. Some are so ‘cute’ and discreet no one would ever know what it was.
Some women can be shy or inexperienced with self-stimulation. Why not see what a vibrator can do for you. It was a lifesaver for me after my divorce and even now with a full dating card, it is a constant companion for me.
If you don’t know where to start, I have you covered. (I love to share no matter what the season is!).
I did some research with some friends at the Red Tent Sisters who shared with me their own personal favourite vibe and bestseller: the Lelo Gigi. What’s so great about the Lelo Gigi? It is a super versatile product that can be used for both internal and external stimulation. It has five speeds and five modes, giving you 25 combinations (ah, the versatility), to spice up your relationship, and leaves lots of room for experimentation. Plus, it’s rechargeable (meaning you don’t have to fiddle with batteries or cords that may break or run out just when you want it the most) and it’s made from body-safe, easy to clean silicone.
The key to well being for women isn’t just about diet and exercise. On of our best woman to woman health tips is to spice up your relationship or fly solo and get shopping for the perfect vibe!
As Mae West would say, “An orgasm a day keeps the doctor away.”
