TAKE TIME OUT FOR YOURSELF WITH OUR INSPIRING IDEAS ON LIFE, LOVE, WORK AND HAVING FUN
Feel like your libido has disappeared since giving birth? You’re not alone. In a recent UK study, 83% of women suffered post-birth sexual problems and were reluctant to discuss them. Nurse and mum-of-two Jo Karabin says she found great support to care for her babies but little discussion or information about re-engaging with the sexual side of your relationship in a safe, non-threatening and non-painful way. So she founded Pash Australia, with the goal of empowering women to live more fulfilling sexual lives by providing knowledge, advice and access to bedroom toys. Here are Jo’s top tips for getting back your mojo.
Many couples find it hard to discuss sex. Talk honestly to your partner and let him know you’re keen to rekindle the intimate side of your relationship. 2 IDENTIFY YOUR FEARS
If you had vaginal tearing from the birth, resuming a sexual relationship can be daunting. Get the all-clear from your doctor then invest in a good lubricant. 3 DATE NIGHT
Whether you go out or stay in, make it special. Have a bath, step into an outfit that makes you feel fabulous,
do your hair and put on make-up. Just getting ready can help you feel excited. 4 GET IN THE ZONE
For many new mums, sleep is more appealing than sex. To help you tap into your inner sex goddess, read erotic fiction or try stimulant products. 5 THE ‘F' WORD
Once you’ve created the perfect date night and got your head in the sexy zone, make sure your partner knows you’ll need extra-loving foreplay before you get into the physical act. 6 MAKE & STAY IN LOVE
Healthy intimacy with your partner is an important part of a relationship. But you don’t need to have daily sex. Keep it fun, invest in a few bedroom accessories and watch the spark stay alive. Visit www.pashparties.com.au.
