Between kids and busy schedules, many parents find that they need to book time with their partners to be intimate. These Simple Ways to Make Intimacy Easier are not just for new relationships but also for the benefit of long-term relationships as well. Intimacy is important for all couples yet sometimes, for reasons we can’t control, that intimacy is a challenge. These simple ways to make intimacy easier may help…
Simple Ways To Make Intimacy Easier
Reduce Your Stress. Work pressure. Overloaded extracurricular schedules. That growing mountain of dirty clothes in the laundry room. Stress can not only block the mental path to intimacy – it can quash the desire as well. Make intimacy easier by trying to cope with stress. Exercise more. Turn off screens (so the late night news doesn’t bug you or you don’t read that one last email your boss sent). Try to leave the mental lists you make (we all make them) outside the bedroom door.
Find Alone Time. Book a grandparent or friend to take the kids for a sleepover. Then, enjoy the house to yourselves. Or book a hotel room and have a mini-getaway. Sometimes a change of environment can make all the difference.
Sometimes your heart says yes but your body says no. Don’t feel like it’s your fault. Or his. Talk to your partner in a heart-to-heart way. Or if you aren’t comfortable talking with your partner (or if you need medical advice), talk to your doctor or pharmacist. It could be something as simple as vaginal dryness.
IMPROVE INTIMACY BY ADDRESSING VAGINAL DRYNESS
Hormonal changes are the cause of most vaginal dryness, but it isn’t just a menopause issue. Women of all ages can experience it at some time in their life. There are many potential causes of vaginal dryness, including:
- Certain medications (like antihistamines and birth control pills)
- Post-natal hormone shifts
- IVF treatments

ProHydrate Natural Feel Moisturizing Gel is effortless – the single-use pre-filled applicator inserts effortless and targets the source of dryness. It is designed to be discreet so only you know you’re using it.
