Mastering Your Mojo: A Guide to Sexual Wellness

Mental health and general well-being are all the rage these days and for good reasons. Keeping fit, practicing meditation, taking supplements, spending quality time with friends, and getting outdoors are excellent ways of boosting your general wellness. But what about sexual wellness? 

Fortunately, we don’t live in the 19th century anymore! We can acknowledge and celebrate the importance of sexual health. Your sexual self-care and general wellness hugely impact your sex life (and your general outlook on life). In short, sexual wellness matters. 

In this article, we’re going to provide a guide to a healthier, happier sex life through sexual self-love. Let’s dive into the dos and must-dos of intimate care!

What is Sexual Wellness Anyway? 

A quick session with your trusty old silicone vibrator or your dominant hand may feel great, but this isn’t enough to achieve sexual wellness. Essentially, sexual wellness is defined as “a state of physical, emotional, mental, and social well-being in relation to sexuality.” 

There are two distinct pillars of long-lasting sexual well-being—physical sexual wellness and mental sexual wellness. We’ll dive into them both below. 

Aspects of physical sexual wellness can include overall health, access to contraception, lack of or treatment for STIs, a satisfying masturbation routine, and access to sexual wellness products like sex toys. Physical sexual wellness also includes the quality of partnered sex. 

Mental sexual wellness encapsulates emotional and social sexual wellness. When assessing your mental sexual health, ask yourself the following:

  • How is your sexual self-esteem?  
  • How comfortable are you with your own body?
  • How comfortable are you showing your body to others?
  • How is your general healthcare? 
  • Do you feel comfortable exploring adult toys? 

Mental sexual wellness can be just as important as the physical. A well-balanced social and emotional state surrounding sex and masturbation will free you up to explore your body.  

When all of these aspects of sexual wellness are in balance, you will have an improved mindset around your sexual well-being. You will experience heightened pleasure, a boost in mood, and other improvements in your life.

The Benefits of Prioritizing Your Pleasure

Self-Care Tips for Sexual Wellness

It’s one thing to know that sexual wellness is important, and it’s another to actively focus on it. Changing habits can be tough. And exploring your wild side can be even tougher. 

We’ve gathered the best sexual care tips to help you out: 

  1. Make it routine: We don’t mean routine as in ‘boring,’ we just mean regular. Your sexual wellness practice should be a consistent, regular habit. 
  2. Set aside time: Part of making any routine is dedicating time to an activity. Set aside at least 30 minutes every day to explore your sexual side. 
  3. Practice mindfulness: Sometimes even orgasming can become dull and tiring. When you start to disconnect from yourself, it helps to practice mindfulness. Think about the sensations, dive into your imagination, and make goals for your sessions.  
  4. Explore resources: There is tons of content online that can help you with sexual exploration and wellness. Check out new porn, smut, how-to masturbate guides, and the hottest news in the world of kink. 
  5. Dare yourself to try: Challenge yourself to explore new toys, sensations, fantasies, and self-fucking methods. Your overall wellness will increase when you get out of your comfort zone. 

These self-care tips will help you optimize your sexual wellness practice and get the absolute most out of masturbation. 

Overcoming Common Challenges

Every sexual wellness journey has its ups and downs. Remember, you aren’t alone in these issues, and there’s always a path forward to greater sexual well-being. Below, we’ll discuss some of the most common challenges.

Performance anxiety is a super common issue. It’s caused by lots of different situations, including aging, potential health problems, past trauma, and poor confidence. At Fleshlight, we offer stamina training toys and sound advice to help with performance.

First, practice makes perfect. Second, there’s nothing wrong or abnormal with performance issues. Lastly, consider speaking to your doctor if your sexual anxiety does not lessen.   

Low libido causes individuals to lack sexual desire in moments when they would otherwise be turned on. For some, this is totally normal, and it’s important to be mindful when your libido is low. For others, it can be caused by stress, illness, or medication. All of these are treatable. Consider speaking to a medical provider and prioritizing your overall physical health. 

Body image issues are another common problem that people face. Many struggle with their body image for years and years, and it can totally affect your sexual wellness. Try to focus on positive thinking. Surround yourself with people and partners that encourage you. And during masturbation, focus on how good your body makes you feel. 

No matter what challenges come up during your sexual journey, you’re not alone, and there are ways to increase your sexual wellness.
