Beyond Vagina 101 – Curious But Crucial Facts for Men
For many men, a woman’s lady bits present a sense of mystery and wonder (although the same could likely be said for a female getting acquainted with a man’s equipment). Even the man who has had plenty of experience with the world down under is sure to have a few questions rolling around. Finally, get the answers to those questions that are too embarrassing to ask a woman, as well tips on how to maintain the male equipment for a healthy penis 24/7 – and better sex.
Why does it make noise during sex?
Known as “queefing,” that funny vaginal fart that sometimes slips out occurs due to the combination of arousal and thrusting. As the vagina becomes engorged, it expands slightly in preparation for sex. Combine that with vigorous thrusting, and air that has made its way up there is released with different movements. No need for embarrassment from either party; it is perfectly normal and healthy.
My girlfriend “squirts” during orgasms. Is it pee?
While some women may release small amounts of urine during sex – possibly due to stress incontinence, it sounds like what she is experiencing female ejaculation, because it is being expelled with force from her vagina. Female ejaculation is a fairly rare phenomenon, but it does happen. While the exact composition of the liquid is debated among professionals and researchers, it is thought the liquid may contain some urine along with other bodily fluids. So, there’s the answer; she’s not peeing during sex – rather, she is she-jaculating!
Why does the vagina smell?
Well, guys, the male genitals are no bunch of roses either, but a slight female odor is perfectly normal. The vagina is self-cleaning and therefore discharges dead skin cells, bacteria and the like in an effort to ward off infection, all of which contribute to the odor. Now, if there is a sudden change in her odor, or it becomes increasingly strong, offensive, or is accompanied by a great deal of discharge it is possible she has an infection such as yeast or bacterial vaginosis – both of which should be checked out and treated by a doc. Otherwise, if a man finds her odor to be a turn-off, she can take a quick shower before sex to freshen up. However, a woman should never use perfumes or other scents to try to mask the smell of her vagina, as those chemicals could very well lead to infection. Using a homemade or commercial douche is also a bad idea, since these can change the pH balance of the vagina and lead to infection, as well.
Is it safe to have sex during a woman’s period?
Yes, there is nothing wrong with having sex while a woman is menstruating, so long as she is healthy. If the woman has HIV/AIDS or another blood-borne illness, obviously, this puts her partner at risk due to the direct contact with blood – even with consistent condom use – so sex should be skipped during her time of the month. Not a fan of seeing blood? Try shower sex to stay squeaky clean – and keep the bed sheets clean, too! And of course, make sure she is comfortable with the idea – a woman who is in the throes of menstrual cramps may not be enthusiastic about any below-the-belt action, at least for a day or two.
Keeping the Penis Healthy
Any man who is sexually active should make it a priority to keep his penis healthy. Not only does a healthy tool make for better sex; it also reduces the risk of giving – or getting – an unpleasant infection. Proper penis care goes beyond just soap and water – though that is an obvious place to start. For optimum penis health, men need to take care of their entire body. It is important to eat right, exercise and maintain a healthy weight – after all an unhealthy body leads to an unhealthy sex life as well. Additionally, men interested in maintaining optimum penile health should use a penis health cream (health professionals recommend Man 1 Man Oil) that contains specially formulated nutrients such as L-Arginine to improve the circulation to the penis in order to maximize the delivery of nutrients and oxygen.
