In this day and age, where liberalism seems to be the trend, you’d think that a large majority would be well versed when it comes to sexual health. Apparently, there are still some things that are not too commonly known. Perhaps it could be that for a liberal society, there are still things that are not discussed too much? In any case, the information for this post was brought to our attention by a reader – thanks, Fiona King!
So here are few things that you might not know about sexual health. Ladies first?
Testosterone. Women’s ovaries produce testosterone throughout their life. If this testosterone is significantly reduced, it can result in a loss of libido, less sensitivity, and less pleasurable orgasms. Experimental testosterone patches in post-menopausal women have shown encouraging results for regaining the loss of sexual feelings.
Ok girls, head on to your local pharmacy for testosterone patches now!
Sex allergy. Yes, there really is an allergic reaction some women have to semen. Thankfully, there is a way to treat this disorder which can lead to anaphylaxis in some women.
Oh wow, this would really suck. I can’t imagine having an allergic reaction to sex.
Thongs. While the comfort and loss of panty lines leads many women to love their thongs, there may be a connection between thong wearing and increased chances of urinary tract infections and yeast infections. Due to the fact that the thin strip of material of the thong moves between the areas of the anus and the vagina, fecal matter and bacteria can be easily spread.
Fashion or health? You would think that this was a no brainer!
