‘My dream lover is…………? Good looking, sexy, passionate, successful, rich? Wow, can we then blame you for oversleeping?
But perhaps it’s time to wake up and look out for that one subtle attribute as well that has a huge impact on sexual health. Yes! we are talking of PERSONAL HYGIENE. Very subjective, sensitive and a matter that SHOULD matter!
It’s a bit tricky to define Hygiene. What might be a basic requirement to one, could seem an OCD to the other. Therefore, in the world of sexual intimacy, it’s important to distinguish normal from not-so-healthy. Whether you are new in a relationship or have been in the journey for long, it’s never too late to become well informed and adopt hygienic practices. Just remember to be sensitive to your partner’s feelings and PRACTICE BEFORE YOU PREACH.
You take my breath away, literally!

It is said that in a single kiss lasting 10 seconds, millions of bacteria are exchanged, some of which can transmit infections. But don’t let this fact come in between your lips! Stick to a heathy cleaning routine and NEVER kiss your partner if either of you has a cut in the mouth, bleeding gums, lip sores or broken skin.

All the perfumes of Arabia might be useless!
In general, bad body odour can make your partner faint before passion makes her swoon. Unfortunately, all the perfumes that were exchanged as Valentine gifts are not going to be of help here. Wash the problem areas often through the day. Nothing can beat a quick shower before the act, maybe together, if you like.
Vagina has its own natural odour too and it is definitely not floral by any standard. Hygiene habits, change in hormones, use of spermicides and antibiotics etc. can impact the natural odour. One needs to differentiate it from the change in odour due to infection, which is generally accompanied with itching, redness and abnormal vaginal discharge. You are the best judge when to seek medical advice.
Overgrown bushes are a sore to the sight!
The unkempt bush in underarm and groin regions can be quite repulsive and intolerable to most. Sweat glands and hair follicles can breed harmful bacteria causing itching.

Wear loose undergarments, keep the genitals clean and dry, and don’t forget to mow regularly.
Oil leak from a machine is normal!
Pre seminal fluid is natural, acts as a lubricant and is not a sign of infection. However, like semen, it might contain sperms and cause pregnancy or transmit STDs. Therefore, protection needs to be in effect at the right time!
Mild discharge from the vagina is also normal. It’s presence and odour might be an irritant a few but it’s beyond one’s control. So, don’t be paranoid, just be observant!
