1. The clitoris you see is just the tip of the iceberg.
The clitoris has 2 branches that wrap around the vaginal opening to increase sensitivity. A woman’s body is meant to have sensitivity and the anatomy shows that. Low sensitivity can come from a variety of internal and external factors.
2. The urethra is an erogenous zone.
The researcher who discovered the G spot thought the urethra was the source of female orgasm.
3. The female has at least 3 sources of lubrication.
The three sources include the Skene’s gland (source of “squirting”), Bartholin’s Gland (lubricates the entrance), vaginal transudate or “sweat”. All link to the arousal centers in the brain. A lack of lubrication can be from a hormonal imbalance or lack of blood flow to your vagina.
4. Vulnerability to Infection
The vulvar and vaginal mucous skin is more vulnerable to viruses, bacteria, and fungi than your body skin. Many infections lack symptoms which explain the Chlamydia and HPV epidemics.
5. Make Sure Your Partner Gets Tested
You can’t tell if a guy has a disease by inspecting his “junk” or by listening to his sexual history.
6. Orgasms Are Healthy For All Areas of Health
Intimacy and orgasm can benefit your psychological, cardiovascular and immune systems. Women often think they will never be able to achieve an orgasm. There are options out there to increase your sensitivity and chance to reach orgasm.
7. Medication Can Kill Your Libido
Some common medications can knock out your sex drive and your doctor may not tell you—certain birth control pills, antidepressants, high blood pressure meds, hormone blockers, and a few antacids. If low libido is affecting your relationship and/or quality of life, consider our 360 Wellness Consult, the O-Shot, or Votiva.
8. You Can Still Get Pregnant On Your Period
Period sex doesn’t guarantee that you won’t get pregnant, but it’s not dangerous either.
9. Always Consult a Physician if Sex is Painful For You
Sex should never hurt. See your doctor if it does. Causes for painful sex can include vaginal dryness, previous genital trauma, allergies or chemical irritants, an autoimmune condition called lichen sclerosis, and infections. Insufficient foreplay may or may not cause sexual pain.
10. Vaginal Dryness Can be a Result of Many Factors
Vaginal dryness can be caused by low hormone states (menopause or breastfeeding), allergy medications, cold medicines, cancer treatments, or even emotional and psychological issues. Fortunately, there are as many treatment options as causes of vaginal dryness.
