Sex educator, Megan Andelloux of the Center for Sexual Pleasure and Health (the CSPH) answers the question:
I have trouble getting wet and staying wet before and during intercourse. What do I do?
Experiencing sexual dryness does not necessarily mean something is medically “wrong” with you. Vaginal wetness is unique to every woman. Just as bodies are individually different, we also vary in what turns us on and how we get wet. In the following three minute video, Megan Andelloux explains what can effect lubrication, which ranges from emotional stress to antihistamines to menstrual cycle, and more.
Here are Megan’s quick tips for how to get wetter in the sack:
- Reflect on your stress level in day to day life.
- Both hormonal and non-hormonal medication can effect wetness. Check your medication and talk to your doctor about alternatives.
- Invest in personal lubrication. Megan recommends the silicone-based Move by ONE.
- Explore what toys are designed to stimulate the anterior fornix erogenous zone (AFE zone).
- Stimulation of the nipples increase vaginal lubrication.
- Check out the book Women’s Anatomy of Arousal by Sheri Winston.
