While the influence of cannabis on female sexual and reproductive health is yet to be fully researched, there are certain effects that are likely to be experienced by habitual users according to some studies:
1. Cannabis can work as a painkiller for period cramps.
2. It may relieve premenstrual symptoms as a relaxant and by affecting hormonal levels directly.
3. THC may be able to shorten a menstrual cycle.
4. It may suppress or block ovulation.
5. THC use may prevent implantation of an embryo.
6. Cannabis can boost sexual desire.
7. As a great relaxant, it is likely to relieve anxiety before sex and make sex more satisfying.
8. Cannabis use can help deal with hot flashes and mood swings during menopause.
Make sure to talk to your doctor before marijuana use! There’s plenty of cannabis mixes for different therapeutic effects.
Understanding the anatomy of your or your partner’s erogenous zones is key to experiencing sexual pleasure.
For people with penises, just as for anyone else, there’s no better way to discover how your body responds to different types of stimulation than taking time to explore it yourself. Here’re the areas you can start with:
🍌 Shaft is the longest part of the penis that can be stimulated with different grips.
🍌 Glans is the head of the penis covered with foreskin on uncircumcised penises. Just like a clitoris, the tip of the penis is particularly sensitive as it has a higher concentration of nerve endings.
🍌 Scrotum is the bag of skin that contains the testicles where sperm is produced. Testicle play may be incredibly pleasurable.
🍌 Prostate gland produces a liquid in which sperm is carried. Stimulating it with a finger, penis, or toy can help achieve a mind-blowing orgasm.
Self-exploration is not exactly masturbation. To become fully aware of your body, take time to touch yourself without any visual sexual stimuli, try different techniques for each area, focus on your sensations, and figure out what feels good for you.
Of course, there is no one-size-fits-all way to keep adult toys out of reach. The choice of your perfect secret place depends on many factors like who you live with, which parts of your home can or can’t be accessed by other people, the type and size of the toy, and so on.
However, don’t get fancy with spots like a vacuum cleaner dust bag or hose (yes, some people do that 😅), or else getting the toy out discreetly will turn into a challenge of its own. The important thing is that your sextoy is within easy reach of where it’s going to be used and cleaned.
Here are some ideas:
🔐 Mini safe
🔐 Lock box
🔐 Fake book box (the more boring the better)
🔐 False-bottom drawer
🔐 Zippered cushion cover or secret pillow pocket
🔐 Fitness bottle
🔐 Coat’s sleeve or pocket
🔐 Purse you don’t use
🔐 Poster tube
🔐 Underneath your mattress (watch out for memory foam!🙃)
🌶 Most toys can be used for both male and female organs stimulation.
🌶 In men, a vibrator can be used for prostate gland stimulation. This massage not just feels incredible and leads to a mind-blowing full-body orgasm, but also reduces the risk of prostate cancer.
🌶 Stimulation of female organs with a vibrator can be both external and internal. Toys like a rabbit vibrator are designed for ultimate dual stimulation.
🌶 When it comes to a product touching your genitals, material matters. Rubber and jelly are porous and hard to clean. Silicone is the best. It’s non-porous, easy to clean, and feels really good. Glass and metal are also good choices.
🌶 Both rechargeable or battery-operated vibrators are good to use. However, rechargeable sex toys are better for the environment and can be easily charged through any USB socket.
🌶 Non-vibrating dildos with a flared base can be used hands-free for masturbation or partnered sex play.
Living through quarantine as a couple is a challenge in its own right. Being stuck with a partner 24/7 for an indefinite period of time can shake the strongest relationships, and it lies in your power to let your love go on beyond lockdown.

🏮 reminisce about all the happy moments you and your SO once shared
🏮 make writing lists of “reasons why I love you” a regular thing
🏮 speaking of those, don’t forget to tell your partner what you admire about them
🏮 create positive moments (FYI it takes 4 good things to cover for 1 negative thing)
🏮 finally do those things you never had time for before
🏮 remember that you and your partner are on one team!

The global quarantine and #stayathome order have disrupted our normal, daily routines in many ways. On top of everything else, forced isolation is likely to endanger our healthy sleep.
Here’s what you can do to take care of this vital bodily function:
🌻 Expose yourself to morning sunlight at least for 1 hour every day. Being outside is best, but even staying in front of an east-facing window will do.
🤸 Make sure to make consistent physical activity part of your daily routine.
🧘♂️ Try using relaxation or meditation techniques before going to bed.
🌚 Keep your bedroom dark and quiet, and save your bed for sleeping, not working, watching TV, eating, or any other activities.
Did you know that sex and sleep share a lot more than a bed where you typically have both? The connection between the two is strong, and one can easily be affected by the other, either in a good or bad way. Your feelings of sleepiness are regulated by your body clock AKA circadian rhythm. It’s important to live in the same day/night cycle to keep melatonin production stable. Unstable melatonin, in turn, affects other hormones production, causing a decrease in estrogen and testosterone levels as compared to cortisol levels. As a result, you may suddenly experience low libido or other sexual dysfunctions.
Ironically, it’s sex that can improve your sleep and thus your sexual life. How? The feel-good hormones released after orgasms act just like a sedative helping you relax and fall asleep faster.
Here’s how you can improve your sleep & sex life:
🌛 Get eight or more hours of sleep every night
🌛 Limit your caffeine intake before sleep
🌛 Turn off all screens a couple of hours before sleep
🌛 Time for sex!
Being stuck at home sucks and working from home may not be as relaxing as it seems, but there are certainly ways to make this experience more fun.
Here’s what you can add to your work-from-home routine to help yourself live through the quarantine:
🍒 Come up with a few morning self-care rituals for your mind and body: a breathing exercise or meditation, a facial or a workout, some quality time with a favorite sex toy–an hour just for yourself will certainly set you up for a productive day ahead.
🍒 Dress up! Even if no one’s gonna see you, who cares? Put on the best lingerie and a new outfit, do your hair and makeup, wear your favorite perfume, and simply enjoy yourself.
🍒 Take a massage break. Don’t wait until your work becomes literally a pain in the neck (or ass!), every once in a while take a few minutes to give yourself a massage to relieve tension. A wand vibrator with a flexible rotating head is perfect for that. Start with your neck and shoulders, and see where it takes you…
🍒 Go commando 😉Taking a conference call in just your undies below the waist, or even with no undies on is kinda fun. And hot. Oh yeah, and that massager might come in handy again.
🍒 Plan a Zoom date to go on at the end of the day. Thanks to technology, a lockdown will not get in the way of a healthy romance. If things get steamy in that video-chat, you are up to seriously safe and enjoyable (God bless intimate toys!) sex.
Vaginal discharge is a body’s function to clean and protect the vagina.
Glands produce a fluid that flows out daily to get rid of dead cells. Here’s what different types of discharge may indicate:
⚪️ White: a bit of it before and after your period is normal. Together with vaginal itching, it can be a symptom of a yeast infection.
⚪️ Clear and watery: absolutely normal on any day of your cycle.
⚪️ Clear and stretchy: may be a sign of ovulation.
🟤 Brown or bloody: may occur right after your periods (which is totally okay). In other cases could be a sign of pregnancy, miscarriage, or some abnormal growths.
🟡 Yellow or green: most likely is a sign of STIs.
