Give yourself some pleasure
Self-pleasuring is important from a physiological sense says Young. Lots of blood flow to the genitals can help stimulate sexual response and if you’re not sexually active in a regular way, it can inhibit or disrupt that flow. “The same is true for kegels, which exercise our pelvic floor. Doing pelvic floor exercises have been known to be helpful in improving good sexual response, especially orgasmic response,” she adds. Young recommends doing kegels at least three times a day.
