Everyone is taught from childhood to bathe daily , change clothes and brush teeth daily for keeping a good health. Keeping hygiene prevents infection, removes bad smell and make you look presentable in society . This is very important socially because no one will like to remain close to a person giving bad smell .
Similarly there are a few things you can do to keep a good hygiene for a better sex life
1- Clean your genitals regularly – While taking bath, Males should pull back the skin on penis gently and wash with plain warm water to remove smegma . No need for routine use of antiseptics . Similarly females should gently wash the outer genitals with soap and water and pat dry them with soft towel . Don’t rub it vigorously to clean otherwise the soft skin in this area may be damaged.
2- Shave your pubic area periodically– Long pubic hairs will have more chances to retain moisture from sweat , leading to itching due to fungal infection . You can shave them off completely every fortnight or at least trim periodically ( As per your preference during sex) but make sure you allow sufficient air to pass in pubic area.
3- Don’t use vaginal douches – Some females use chemicals with strong fragrance for pleasant smell from vagina . This is not advisable because it will disturb the normal pH of vagina and destroy protective bacteria . You can use plain water not more than once a day.
4- Use cotton undergarments – Cotton is the best fabric to use for undergarments . They suit the soft skin of genitals . They allow sufficient air to pass and allow the sweat to dry . Synthetic material will not let the sweat to dry and cause rashes . The size should be appropriate , too tight under wears should be avoided.
5- Washing of genitalia after sex – It is not a must to wash your vagina after sex because semen is a sterile body fluid. Some may feel uncomfortable with the smell or the feel of semen . They can wash it with small quantity of plain Luke warm water but no strong antiseptic solution should be used .
6- Changing Napkins during periods – it is extremely important to change your napkin every 4-6 Hours depending on the flow of blood . You can check it and if it is soaked, you can change but if not soaked yet, may be you can wait . Keeping a fully soaked napkin will make you vulnerable to infections causing problems in married life or conception later on.
