PrEP is a drug that helps prevent you from getting HIV but even though we know it works, it is NOT provided free on the NHS (unless you are on the ongoing impact trial)

Important article about speaking up and talking openly with your healthcare provider about your sexual health-at any stage of your life- but particularly during the post-partum period. There are so many physical, hormonal, and emotional changes that happen. Don’t be afraid to ask questions and talk openly! Link to article in bio. 👆🏻
I tell my male patients to check their family jewels to decrease risk for testicular cancer.
Men usually have intimate knowledge of what their penis looks and feels like but many of my patients admit they don't routinely check their testicles.
Do you OR does the man in your life check his gonads monthly?
What to do:
Monthly, using both hands notice the shape, feel and size of both testicles as you gently roll them between your fingers.
Normal testicles should feel soft and move freely inside the scrotum.
Compare both sides any lumps, swelling, change in size or irregularities.
Check the epididymis (the tube that carries sperm) that sits on top and behind the testis and the spermatic cord (connects testicle to the body)

The mind-body connection plays a huge role in sexual satisfaction.
We have all heard that the biggest sex organ is our brain. Sexual drive is influenced by stress, relaxation, sleep, diet, or exercise—all of which can have an impact on our state of mind. Staying present with our physical sensations during sex can significantly boost sexual fulfillment.
Next time you’re getting intimate, you could try concentrating on all of the enticing sights, sounds, and tastes that you’re experiencing—staying in the moment might just take you to new heights.

Today we’re introducing the brilliant Amber who is our advocacy Officer for this year.
We’re super excited for all of the events that Amber is going to help us create and run. If you’re an NCL society who want to get involved and work with us- Amber is your girl to speak to!
* 16+ RATED ARTICLE *
Seven things to discuss before getting intimate
1. What Sex Means To You
2. Your Sexual Health Status
3. Protection Methods
4. Any Previous Trauma
6. What You Want
Research shows people are younger and younger when they have their first sexual encounter. It also shows, especially in this Tinder era, that the seven topics above are often not discussed, which leads to different expectations, which then leads to disappointment and frustration, if not a repetition of previous trauma(s) 🥺. Talking openly about sex might seem uncomfortable at first, but really, you are about to share your bodily juices with another person (yes, that sentence was meant to make you react!), so maybe you also want to share your ideas, desires and needs 🙂. The article below is a great way to start the giggles and real conversations. Now, once you've done that (good on you :D), go explore each other 😉!

There is nothing better than having something interesting/thought-provoking/conversation-starting/funny to listen to on your way to work~doing the groceries ~ cooking dinner ~ tanning ~masturbating (u do u boo, I’ve actually listened to a podcast where a girl said she masturbates to joe rogan’s voice. I nearly choked on my Oreo - which kinda sounds kinky, but I mean 🤷🏼♀️ whateva tickles ur Pickle). 🤪
If you know me in real life I’ve probs brought up a podcast I’ve listened to, and recommended, at least 23 times. SoRry NoT sOrrY 🤨😏
So this week I have my top 3 (in no order) sex-positive SEX PODS. Disclaimer: there tends towards an overlap of sex/relationships/love. So they, by virtue of most sex requiring two or more humans, involved talk of relationships (gross) etc. 💕
1. True Sex and Wild Love with Dr @wednesdaymartinphd and @whitnlove . This one is a new pod but really interesting chats about our evolutionary human tendencies and how these play out in the modern world - research bombs x anecdotal stories + non-conventional and conventional relationships = 💯
2. The Hook Up - this one is a @triple_j segment and podcast. The eps are short, sweet and to the point ~ 30 mins. They touch on so many aspects of sex + relationships without a single judgemental tone in sight. i love this one as there are soooo many topics and eps to choose from depending on ur mood. 🍆 💦 😭 😃 🍑 .
3. @turnmeonpodcast - see: polyamorous married couple discuss everything to do with fucking. basically. nothing is off limits, and its pretty inclusive of all humans and there experiences. would recommend/10 🎉

Morality is decreasing. We must raise awareness on the darkness in this world and shed light in the areas no one wants to talk about. You have influence. You have impact! Don't let that go to waste.. It is a natural gift from God because we are made in his image - We carry his light and influence don't let this be a world without hope. Because we aren't hopeless. When the world gets darker we shine brighter! 💪🔆🌞

This is one of those things that isn’t usually taught in a standard Sex Ed class, but is learned through word-of-mouth from friends or family. But it is true and an easy way of reducing risk for a UTI (Urinary Track Infection). ————————
Another great way of preventing UTIs is to make sure that you and your partner both keep up good hygiene practices. ———————
Think of it this way, anything on the outside of him, is going to be on the inside of you.
Condoms - did you know there’s different kinds? Different sizes (because penises are like snowflakes), different textures (this can be fun!), different material (lamb skin is a great alternative for those allergic to latex!), different colors (because why not!), and different flavors (yes.. flavors). ———————
It’s important to make sure you find the right one for you! Don’t be ashamed to research it a bit beforehand, unless you’re comfortable standing in the store and reading the boxes then (A+ for confidence and lack of shame 👏🏼)
Main point: Condoms are NOT a one size fits all!! 😊
Large/Small/Average - It is not the end all be all to your worth as a human being. It is merely an appendage attached to your earthly body. Your character, goodwill towards your fellow man, and overall Spirit are infinitely more important ❤️ ————————-
From a medical standpoint, many men feel that “larger is better”, but the average vagina is only 6”-8” deep when aroused (3”-4” when not aroused) so if you’re too large, you will actually hurt your partner instead of pleasuring them. So in most cases “bigger is NOT better”. 🍆🥕🍌

Sex Ed is NOT just for the able-bodied! Look at this gorgeous couple! Will they have to be more creative during sex? Absolutely, but that’s more fun anyways! They don’t have to worry about boring missionary position every time *yawn* 🙄 ————————
Did you know that people with disabilities are at a statistically higher risk for sexual abuse and STD/STIs? It’s because even if you’re one of the rare lucky ones who received a sex education, those programs typically do NOT cover anything other than able-bodied information and there’s not a ton of other resources available for them. That’s NOT ok. ———————
So remember, the next time you see a hot guy or girl in a wheelchair or with crutches, think to yourself, “wow, I bet they know some really cool positions in bed” 😉

Women - you are NOT the property of your husband, you DO still have a choice when it comes to sex and your husband must receive your consent each time. ———————————
Men - you DO have the right to not want sex, you are NOT a machine that always has to be “turned on”, your wife still needs your consent.

"How do you establish a boundary?" - For some, it's taught to them.. "this is where you draw the line".. for others, they learn through experiences over time and figure our what's right for them. ---------------------------------------
Boundaries can change though. They eb and flow throughout our lives, and even once we're married. (Marriage does not mean boundaries disappear.) There's no "right way" or "wrong way", there's only "your way". YOUR boundaries are YOURS to decide, no one else's.

Watermelon is Nature's Viagra because it contains the amino acid citrulline which relaxes and dilates blood vessels. Citrulline also helps reduce blood pressure. 🍉😊💗 Watermelon is the richest known dietary source of citrulline. The largest amount of citrulline is found in the white rind that circles the pink flesh.
In the body, citrulline is converted into the essential amino acid arginine.
Both citrulline and arginine play an important role in the synthesis of nitric oxide (NO), which helps to lower blood pressure, and cause an erection by dilating and relaxing blood vessels. Nitric oxide also increases athletic performance.
Nitric oxide is a gas molecule that causes the tiny muscles around the blood vessels to relax and dilate.
Supplementation with watermelon or watermelon juice has been shown to reduce blood pressure and arterial stiffness in people with high blood pressure.
Watermelon consumption also helps reduce muscle stiffness and soreness after exercise.
Insulin, an important hormone, is involved in blood sugar control. Insulin resistance is when the body produces insulin but the body's cells become resistant to its effects. This can lead to high blood sugar levels and over time to type 2 diabetes and metabolic syndrome.
Watermelon juice and arginine have been found to help reduce insulin resistance in some studies.
Watermelon is also rich in these nutrients:
Vitamin C: a powerful antioxidant that is essential for overall health, skin, joint health and immune function.
Potassium: A mineral that is important for blood pressure control and heart health.
Copper: A mineral found in many plant foods.
Vitamin B5: Also known as pantothenic acid and important for fatigue and chronic fatigue.
Vitamin A: Watermelon contains beta-carotene. The body converts beta-carotene into Vitamin A. Vitamin A is an important protective antioxidant for overall immune support and eye health. 🍉😊💖Enjoy some organic seeded watermelon for optimal health, athletic performance and sexual health. 🍉😊💖 #watermelon#watermelonjuice#holistichealth#holistichealing#holisticnutrition#holisticnutritionist#naturalhealth#naturopathy#naturopath#sexualhealth
It’s okay to not have sex on your wedding night.
According to one survey from 2016 by the lingerie company Bluebella, only 48% of couples had sex on the night of their wedding. This is based on survey data from 1,000 couples.
That means that roughly 50-52% of couples don’t have sex on their wedding night.
There doesn’t have to be pressure to have sex after the wedding. In fact, exhausted, intoxicated, or overwhelmed wedding night sex may not make for the greatest experience anyway.
Arm Implant to Prevent HIV in Reach 💪⠀
A whip-thin length of polymer loaded with islatravir, Merck's investigational HIV prevention drug, and implanted into the arm is being investigated as a future option for people who have a hard time taking pills.⠀
The drug — previously referred to at MK-8591 or, for prevention, EFdA — has been a hot topic at HIV conferences in recent years, even though all data presented have come from preclinical nonhuman primate studies.⠀
But in a packed room at the end of a long conference day here at the International AIDS Society (IAS) 2019 Conference on HIV Science, Randolph Matthews, MD, PhD, a senior scientist at Merck, presented 12-week data from a phase 1 pilot study of the long-acting HIV pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP).⠀
For the first time, we have demonstrated the potential for long-acting implant formulations of islatravir that can deliver medications for at least 1 year, Matthews told Medscape Medical News. "It could represent a meaningful option for many people throughout the world, particularly those with adherence challenges."⠀
For the full story, including references, on this hopeful study, please tap the link in our bio.⠀

RELOADED: now that we’ve had a good laugh about the ‘O shot’ for the ladies and a ‘P shot’ for the guys, people are in my inbox wanting to know more. Like I said, the ‘O shot’ stands for ‘Orgasm shot’ and it improves sensation, lubrication and overall sexual well being. It helps reduce painful sex and enhances quality of life in general. Don’t settle for only the ‘G spot’ orgasm if there are 25 other alphabets to explore. I have tagged @brianmonaisa so you can ask him all the questions you’re asking me in DM’s. He’s the expert and guarantees privacy and confidentiality. You’re welcome to DM him or @marang_aesthetics if you’re not comfortable in the comments section. You can visit Marang Aesthetic at: Netcare Pinehaven Hospital, 1 Gateway Street, Krugersdorp or call them on (011) 950-5512 #health#beauty#aesthetics#sexuality#sexualhealth
