The year 2020 has a lot of people frazzled, and for good reason. Having to homeschool your kids while running video call meetings from your dining room doesn’t leave a lot of time for parental units to get some alone time. Plus, singles who are attempting to date while everyone is quarantining are left with a lot of questions on how to approach intimacy.
No matter your situation, PinkCherry is here with great Black Friday (Cyber Monday) toy deals to help you improve your sex life just in time to head into 2021 feeling in charge. There are several reasons you should focus on enhancing your sex and masturbation practices to get the most out of your experiences. So, instead of picking up your 90th quarantine hobby (no judgement here, knitting and putting together puzzles is divine for stress relief), why not pick up a new dildo or stroker instead?
Why Sexual Health and Wellness Matter
Maintaining your health and wellness doesn’t start or stop at your genitals! To achieve optimal full-body health, you also should include frequent to occasional sex or masturbation. While you might not notice the benefits of a good romp in the hay immediately, you’re likely to burn a few calories. You could also experience lower levels of stress (a must as we enter the holiday season). During sex or masturbation, your body also releases hormones that aid in certain responses including the immune system. Having sex is also good for your heart, both emotionally and physically. While the world is full of uncertainty, you can be certain that making a commitment to your sexual health and wellness will be well worth your time.
- Depending on your sexual style, you have the chance to get in a good workout while you’re getting it on. The number of calories you burn will, of course, depend on what you’re doing and what position(s) you’re doing it in. If you’re on the bottom, you’re probably not as likely to break out in a full sweat as if you were on top. So, make sure you switch things up with your partner to get in some good riding or thrusting action. Those masturbating can try strokers or suction cup dildos to get a similar cardio burn. Of course, sexual activity is not a replacement for normal exercise. Still, staying home to get your cardio in might be better than hitting up the gym while we’re in pandemic mode.
- Having sex or masturbating can be a great mood booster. Blowing off some steam with your favorite vibe might help relieve some stress. While we’re feeling socially distanced from friends and family, having the time to dedicate to your relationship might bring you and your partner closer together. During sex, the body releases dopamine and oxytocin (the love hormone). For many this can create a feeling of oneness, bringing you closer together. If you’re single, this could mean learning to love yourself. This could bring you an increase in self-confidence and body positivity.
- The focus of the year 2020 has been on health. While sex can’t fix a compromised immune system, it does bring you immune-related benefits. In combination with eating right, getting regular exercise, and adequate sleep, having sex or masturbating can help your body create more antibodies. You should still follow through with your annual healthcare visits and inquire with your doctor on current vaccines to give you the best fighting chance as the cold and flu season rages on.
- Did you know that sex affects the heart? We already talked about how oxytocin and dopamine can affect your attraction to your partner or yourself. Now, it’s time to talk about one of the more surprising physical outcomes of sex. A study performed back in 2010 showed that men who had sex at least twice each week had lower instances of cardiovascular disease compared to those only getting it in once a month or less. You can read more from that study here.
How to Care for Your Sexual Health While Quarantining
The best way to care for yourself as we bring the year to an end is to continue limiting your physical interactions with people who don’t live in your household. This means changes to the way we have date nights or if we can even go out on dates at all. But keep your chin up, this doesn’t mean that your sex life has to suffer. Instead, look at this as a time to learn and explore. Self love is the best kind of love, after all.
Changes to Dating
It may be that you’ve found a way to do some virtual dating. Video chatting has been a great way for people to meet and stay connecting during the pandemic. But what about when you’re ready to take things to the next level?
Before COVID-19, after going on a few in person dates you would sometimes progress to having sex. Is the same true for dating virtually? It’s totally up to you, but when you’re ready to experience virtual sex there are many options to accommodate your interests. In fact, there is a whole line of sex toys that allows your partner to control the pulses of your vibrations through an app. This means they can be anywhere in the world while helping you achieve climax.
