How To Improve Your Sex Life and Libido Through the Menopause

Warm Up Before Sex

During menopause, you are more likely to experience problems with natural lubrication. However, warming up through kissing, dirty-talking, or taking a shower with your darling before snuggling underneath the sheets can work miracles on your lubrication and sex drive.

Use lubricants and Vaginal Moisturizers

Vaginal dryness is common during menopause. However, this does not mean it should sabotage your sex life.Lubricants and vaginal lubricants can help you feel comfortable while playing with sex toys or whileyour partner penetrates or thrusts into you.

Make Friendship with Sex Toys

Sex toys, especially vibrators promote blood flow to your vagina. When you are sensitive down there, you are more likely to enjoy sex. Vibrators offer direct and indirect stimulation. Take your time to find what works for you best before adding sex toys to your sex life. You can achieve that through masturbation.
