    It could be important for the enlargement[3] of your blood vessels and enhancing the blood flow throughout the body.

    It is also clearly linked to various[4] issues with sexual performance which even includes erectile dysfunction.

    You could start by enhancing the quality of your sexual encounter by deliberately obtaining more than 7 hours of sleep each night.

  5. Eat A Balanced Diet

    It is a fact that what you become is what you consume. The effectiveness that you have in your bedroom may get impacted by what’s on your plate.

    The most ideal diet that you may have to improve the health of your sexual system[5] is by consuming a diet that is high in nutrients and low in fat.

    It is good to go for a balanced diet that is rich in fresh produce – such as lean meat cuts and whole grains, and low-fat milk.

    There are numerous varieties of lubricants that are available for various uses and it includes the ones that are ideal for solo activities[6] and also the ones that are ideal for your partner to become pregnant.

    Lubricants may also aid in reducing the risk of infection by reducing tears.

  7. Reduce Alcohol Consumption

    But it also lowers the libido and may cause erectile dysfunction lastly, it could make it more difficult to climax.

  8. Avoid Illicit Substances

    However, these typically have the exact opposite effect on the cause. Don’t use medications[8] to avoid erectile dysfunction.

    It is better to be warned that some prescription medications could also lead to these problems.

  9. Examine Additional Erogenous Zones

    We frequently begin discussing sex by discussing the genitalia. However, the truth is that there are many erroneous zones on our bodies, and not all of them are found below the belt.

    Some people find it highly erotic to have their necks caressed[9]. Some people enjoy having their underarms touched.

    Nipple stimulation alone may send them into an orgasmic rage. It is better to take the time to investigate all of our possible pleasure centers.

  10. Presence Is The Key

    Presence is the power to become fully present with the entire body, mind, and spirit. Is the state of not being engrossed in your body or being preoccupied with thoughts.

    When presence is done well, it might seem that the time has come to a halt and also hours of making love have passed[10] in a flash.

    You may start by intentionally concentrating on your spouse and giving them your full attention and living in the present moment.

What Men Should Do Before Sex?

Having sex with a proper partner could be intimate and enjoyable. You should not take certain things for granted, regardless of how frequently you’ve had sex with your spouse.

One of them is good hygiene and here are a few things you need to do before having sex.

  • Protection

    Unless your spouse wants to get pregnant and doesn’t want the use of protection, keeping your condoms accessible[11] could aid you to have sex much more easily.

    It is annoying and depressing to be in the mood for sexual foreplay but only to remember that you forgot to buy the contraceptives, or you’ve kept them in a place that you can’t find right now.

  • Maintain Hygiene

    It is important to consider this point. It is rather simple to get caught up in the excitement of the moment and forget to consider this step, but attempting[12] to lay on someone whose genitalia is not clean may be worse.

    So, before even considering having sexual intercourse, it is better to clean up the genitals by having a shower or simply by cleaning them separately.

  • Concentrate On Your Breath

    It doesn’t matter if you’ve been dating for a lot of years, or how at ease you are with one another, nothing might be more unattractive than the scent of your meal, in your partner’s mouth.

    It is better to avoid this weird situation, by going to the restroom and brushing your teeth or rinsing your mouth.

  • Put On Easy To Strip Clothes

    The foreplay could get agonizingly difficult if both of your anticipations go through the trouble of taking off those ridiculously tight jeans.

    Sex is an unplanned maneuver, but make sure that you and your partner dress in loose-fitting clothes that may easily be stripped off before having sex. In other words, it would make the sexual foreplay pretty smooth sailing.

Conclusion

It is critical to keep in mind that sex does not stop after an orgasm. The process also includes embracing your spouse afterward.

The two extremely crucial aspects-intimacy and affection are things that are prioritized in any relationship, and a good cuddle helps communicate those feelings.

Sex is believed to promote sleep, strengthen the immunity system, and lower the danger of heart disease.

At the same time, boosting your sense of self-worth and lengthening your lifespan may be an inevitable aspect of healthy sex life. It is true, that having a good sexual life has vast benefits.

However, it purely depends on how well you could perform beforehand, during, and after, these benefits may be identified and expanded respectively.
