Contrary to popular belief, your sex life doesn’t have to end once you reach a certain age. Sex is a natural, healthy, necessary, and fun part of life — especially if you have one of the the best sexual devices on hand to help that experience along. Orgasms have an array of health benefits, and they feel great too, so why not employ a little assistance to help you get there?
Benefits of Orgasms
Orgasms — either with a partner or solo — are clinically proven to help reduce stress, improve mood, aid sleep, provide glowing skin, and boost confidence. They also make for a great workout, increasing your heart rate and exercising the whole body, including the pelvic floor.
In addition, orgasms can improve circulation, promote healthy estrogen levels, provide lymphatic massage for detox, increase the Dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA) hormone (which is great for brain function and the immune system), and even promote longevity — what’s not to love?
Orgasms and Menopause
For many women, sex can change after menopause due to a decrease in estrogen that typically helps to promote healthy vaginal lubrication. This can lead to vaginal atrophy (the thinning, drying, and inflammation of the vaginal walls), in turn causing discomfort during sex.
However, all is not lost. According to Mayo Clinic, staying sexually active can help to keep vaginal discomfort at bay by increasing blood flow to the vagina. The academic medical center also suggests finding a good, glycerin-free vaginal lubricant or moisturizer (try this bestselling, best-rated Penchant Premium hypoallergenic lubricant, $14.95, Amazon) to increase your comfort.
Since it may also be harder to climax during or after menopause, a good way to help you do so is to find a sexual device you love that works for you.
