Sexual Health Tips for Autumn

Sexual Health Tips for Autumn

Couple hugging.

While fall is known as the season for football and colorful leaves, it can also be an ideal season to boost your sexual health. The chilly, dark weather invites the perfect time to cocoon inside (or in bed) with your partner. In fact, there are several aspects of autumn that can foster better sexual wellness. Here are some ways to make the most of the season this year:

Heat it Up

As the hot summer nights are replaced with a noticeable chill in the air, use this as an opportunity to not only snuggle up with your partner during cool fall mornings but also generate extra heat during sex. Consider sexual positions such as missionary with a pelvic tilt or multiple variations of spooning for a “cozier” experience under the sheets. Lastly, don’t miss Halloween as the ideal chance to get creative in the bedroom. Sexual costume play can spice up your sex life and bring you and your partner closer before the stressful holiday season begins.

Protect Yourself

Unfortunately, the cooler and drier air can have some negative effects on the body, including dry skin and sickness. Since colds can sabotage your libido and energy, it is a good idea to stock up on Vitamin C at the beginning of the season to prevent illness. In addition, dry skin is often a problem in the fall, even when it comes to your sexual health. For men, penis chafing can be a struggle, especially if the penis is consistently rubbing up against their underwear. Investing in penis cream can be very beneficial in keeping the penis moist and, therefore, functional this fall.

Boost Your Mood

It is common for people to hit a low when the cooler and darker weather begins. Moodiness and depression can be improved in a very natural way with sexual activity. In fact, sex triggers the release of endorphins – the body’s natural feel-good chemical. This “more emotional” time of year can also foster emotional intimacy, which can lead to more physical intimacy as well.

At Triune Therapy Group, we take pride in our ability to share tips for optimal sexual wellness. Sexual health is a topic that should not be ignored. As you enjoy pumpkin spice lattes and Saturday tailgates this fall, we hope that you can also take this season as an opportunity to improve your sexual health as well.
