World Sexual Health Day
Today is World Sexual Health Day and a significant part of having good sexual health is having good sex. Because we still don’t talk openly about sex nearly as much as we should do, due to taboos and embarrassment, there are a lot of issues and scenarios that people go through alone. Talking and learning about sex, and in particular good sex, is a conversation that practically everyone can benefit from.
But maybe the first hurdle to overcome is getting in the mood. First and foremost, if you don’t want to have sex, you should never feel pressured to do anything, whether that pressure is coming from yourself or from a partner. However, if you’ve been feeling like your sex drive has just been low recently due to stress, anxiety, or fatigue - this is something that can be addressed. If your head is full of worries, however big or small they may be, it is definitely a mood killer if they keep creeping in and you can’t get your head in the game. CBD is immensely popular as a therapeutic means to manage stress and moderate anxiety, working to maintain a healthy chemical balance. The phytocannabinoid does this by regulating the endocannabinoid system, regulating the output and production of stress hormones, and repairing damaged neurons.
Last, but certainly not least, we need to talk about pain. Being in pain is one of the biggest reasons that people can be put off sex, and unfortunately, it is common yet not openly spoken about. If there is a certain aspect or position in sex that you find painful or uncomfortable, communicate this to your partner. Pain is not pleasant, but also the anticipation of something painful can often be just as bad. If you’re suffering from sore muscles or joints, using a CBD topically can reduce inflammation and soothe the area, allowing you to concentrate on where you want to be.
In many ways, CBD can help your sex drive. This is not a magic pill that you pop for good sex, this takes education and communication. Nevertheless, CBD can help you relax and get in the mood which is the biggest hurdle for many. Physiologically, this plant-based compound can also offer a helping hand whether it’s soothing pain or helping increase your blood flow during arousal. Look after your sexual health with one of nature’s greatest supplements and see what CBD could do for you.
