Have you lost your mojo in the bedroom and are not keen on sex anymore?  Screen Shot 2016-09-26 at 4.33.51 PM It’s all in the mind Good sex starts with you and your mindset. If you think of it as a chore, then you are missing out on a really good sex life. Besides the actual deed, there are parts of it that you need to nurture – your sensuality, sexual confidence and loving your body. You don't need a partner to enjoy sex You don’t always have to be with your partner to enjoy sex. There is no shame in masturbation as it can teach you a lot about your body. You can learn about your erogenous zones and indulge in your fantasies. Exploring your body on your own can open up a whole new world of sexual pleasure. In fact some women who struggle to orgasm when with a partner may achieve orgasm through masturbation. It’s not always about orgasm You may have heard of people having multiple orgasms, and climaxing each time they have sex. Understand that you’re not a failure if you have an orgasm each time you have sex. It’s not always about orgasm. Sometimes it’s about connecting with your partner, sensuality and fun. Worrying too much can sure take the pleasure out of it. Set your mind at ease with protection To enjoy a good sex life, you need to be comfortable, both physically and mentally. And the issue of consequences that come with unprotected sex can dull the mood. From STIs to unwanted pregnancy, you need to be with a partner that understands these issues. He should not have a problem with using condoms. Spice it up by trying all kinds – from scented, ribbed, vibrating or flavoured. There are loads of options. Remember to use condoms even with sex toys. Oral sex also carries many risks, so put those flavoured condoms to good use. If you take safety precautions and are with a partner that is just as careful, your mind will be at ease.
