Resolve to Have More Sex!
Highlights from the extra.ca article - "Need a new resolution? Have more sex"
"People make all sorts of resolutions about their bodies and their lives but neglect sex," laments Brenda Kerber, commenting on North America's annual tradition of declaring self-improvement wishes.
..."I love the idea of people putting effort into sex," gushes Edmonton-based Dr Brian Parker, a clinical sexologist and sex educator, "because people forget that sex takes work."
...According to Babeland, a company that "sells sex toys to a passionate world," vibrators are good on any number of male body parts including "on the perineum (the skin between the anus and the balls)," which the Babeland website promises will "send a buzz toward the prostate, a much-overlooked male erogenous zone." Speaking of the prostate, Kerber notes sex is a great way to achieve a popular New Year's resolution towards better health. "Regular ejaculation reduces the risk of prostate cancer," she says, adding that for everybody, sex releases endorphins that make people feel better while reducing stress.
...Parker suggests people try things that they would not normally do. "People get into a sexual routine, products can help break the monotony," he says. Introducing toys, props and objects like whips, feathers and even condoms into sex can create new and exciting dynamics. He suggests guys can jerk off while wearing or smelling a condom, and they can rip up a condom and use the base of it as a cock ring. All of which eroticizes the condom and makes it a sexual toy on a person's own terms rather than as prescribed by health and government officials.
