Why Good Sexual Health is About More Than Just Sex

Why Good Sexual Health is About More Than Just Sex

At Beautifully Healthy, we’re not afraid to talk about what happens between the sheets as we feel the hesitancy and shame surrounding talking about sex needs to be a thing of the past. We hope that by having an open dialogue about sexual health and wellness we can help our community feel empowered and confident in their bodies and their sex life. We also believe that by starting these open and respectful conversations about sexual health it creates a space free of stigma and shame. If we feel awkward talking about sexual wellness and intimacy, we can't spread awareness on things like respect, choice and safety.

When we talk about sexual health, we believe it includes far more than avoiding disease or unplanned pregnancy. Although, experiencing these things does not mean you’re incapable of being or becoming sexually healthy. Being sexually healthy means understanding that sexuality is a natural part of life and is more than just sexual behaviour. Having good sexual health is the ability to embrace and enjoy your sexuality and gives you the freedom to take charge of your reproductive health and your emotional wellbeing surrounding intimate relationships. Sexual health also means choosing the best health and wellness products for our bodies, inside and out.

Intimacy is a subject we are no longer shying away from, and we are passionate about changing the dialogue surrounding female sexuality which is why we offer sex toys and vibrators so that you can feel comfortable exploring your body. We know how hard it can be taking that step and finding what’s right for your body and desires, but we’ve made it easy through our sexual health category where you can explore in peace.

We’ve got great brands that create products made to make you put your pleasure first such as Vush, who have a fantastic range of internal vibrators, and My ilo, who have some of the most beautifully designed sex toys out there.

Self Love

Often sex is discussed in terms of partners and relationships, but sexual health also fits into self love. To be sexually healthy means to have personal self-acceptance and awareness of sexual interests and desires. Sex is not only about exploring others but also exploring your own body and your wants and needs. We want to break down the stigma surrounding female pleasure and recognise it as a form of self love. Getting to know your body is a great way to practice self love which can help you accept your body in the process. Therefore, it is important to develop habits around self love such as sexual pleasure. By focusing more on your own self pleasure, you can change how you experience sex which can lead to better sexual awareness.

For some, engaging in conversations about sex can be uncomfortable but by gaining the confidence to talk openly with sexual partners and health professionals and learning more about safer sex practices, it can help you take charge of your own sexual health. 

At Beautifully Healthy we believe that everyone deserves a tasteful, inclusive and safe space to have fun, be curious and be empowered to do whatever makes you feel good about your body.
