Measuring just over 3-inches long, the Smart Bead is easily inserted into the vagina for the Kegel exercise session. One of the LELO global bestsellers, it’s waterproof and made of body-safe materials. Smart Bead  works by measuring your “orgasm potential” when you first contract your muscles, and then automatically creates a personalized workout routine for you to follow, using five different vibration levels. The Smart Bead will vibrate when it’s time to contract, and will stop when it’s time to relax, and you’ll only need to use it five minutes a day.

Besides receiving the Smart Bead, the winner will get the Flickering Touch Massage Candle, which melts into a pool of beautifully-scented massage oil that can be applied directly to the body.

The Cleaning Spray is the perfect antibacterial for your precious new toy. Spray before and after using you your Smart Bead, wait 5 seconds, and wipe off with a cloth.

Last (but certainly not least!) is the Personal Moisturizer, which can be used with your Smart Bead or all on its own. This special formula won’t stick, gloop, or stain.

Demystifying Kegel Exercises

Why Kegels Are Good Things, And How You Can Do Them Properly

It’s hard not to notice when the skin on our face starts sagging and your breasts start dropping. But other changes are taking place all over our bodies as we age, some which might be less noticeable. Our vaginal tissue thins and weakens, for example, a result of natural events such as childbirth and menopause. And the pelvic floor muscles that control our bladder (and much more, as you’ll shortly find out) also get out of shape. That’s why we may accidentally leak when we laugh, sneeze, or make a sudden movement.

Besides working with your bladder, pelvic muscles are responsible for the contractions you feel during orgasm. With strengthened, in-shape pelvic muscles, it’s easier to become aroused and reach orgasm during sex.

Get your pelvic muscles in-shape

“Your intimate muscles are like any other muscles: their power and efficiency improve with a regular work out,” says Ian Kerner, Ph. D, licensed psychotherapist and sexuality counselor.

Kegels are designed to increase blood flow to the vagina, which strengthens pelvic floor muscles. However, many women don’t know precisely which muscles to contract, or they simply cannot stick to an exercise schedule. Either way, they often “give up” on Kegels altogether.

To properly exercise your pelvic floor muscles, you must contract and hold the same muscles you use to stop urinating– and hold it for 5 to 10 seconds. Start with three sets of 10 contractions each, and build up your routine when you feel your muscles getting stronger. If you’re still unsure whether you’re contracting the correct muscles, insert two fingers into the vagina and contract– those are the muscles that need your attention. You can practice your Kegels pretty much anywhere, from doing the laundry to sitting you’re at your desk!

Training your pelvic floor muscles on any schedule

There are a variety of ways to enhance your Kegel exercises, from Ben Wa balls (marble-sized balls inserted into the vagina) to more interactive pelvic floor “trainers.” For many of us who need a little help adhering to a Kegel exercise schedule, we recommend the LUNA Smart Bead.

Measuring just over 3 inches long, the Smart Bead is easily inserted into the vagina for the exercise session. One of the LELO global bestsellers, it’s waterproof and made of body-safe materials.

LUNA Smart Bead works by measuring your “orgasm potential” when you first contract your muscles, after which it automatically creates a personalized workout routine for you to follow, using five different vibration levels. The Smart Bead will vibrate when it’s time to contract, and will stop when it’s time to relax, and you only need to use it five minutes a day. That’s a workout we can handle.

Not only will LUNA Smart Bead help control any potential bladder leakage, it will help you achieve longer, stronger orgasms as your pelvic muscles get into shape.

To reconnect with your partner: Contrary to what you may have heard, you don’t need to masturbate alone. Masturbation can accelerate a sexual experience with your partner, and he or she will probably love the idea, too!

number 2To feel good about your body: Another FabOverFifty poll, about body image, revealed that 59 percent of women don’t think they’re sexy, mainly because of their bodies. So get naked and start getting more in touch with yourself! Self-appreciation is the best present you can give yourself. Who needs a psychiatrist when you can masturbate?

Help Rose Get The Answers She Needs

I am delighted  when I can help young people on a mission, and 27-year-old Rose (Bouaziz) Robbins is on a mission that concerns all of us. A PhD candidate in Clinical Psychology at the University of Ottawa, Canada, Rose discovered, while conducting a series of studies on body image and sexual health in women across their lives, that most of the information currently available focuses on young women. “Researchers have looked at undergraduate students in their early 20s and generalized their findings to older women,” Rose wrote to me. “As you can imagine, this is hardly conducive to developing appropriate interventions for women 50+ whose experiences of sexuality and body image may differ greatly from that of emerging adults,” she said.

Made of body-safe silicone and hard plastic, REACH also can turn the Revel Body SOL into a internal stimulator by transmitting vibrations from the vibrator throughout its phallic-shaped handle. One lucky FOF will win.

Introducing The Ultimate Vaginal Moisturizer

Never in my wildest dreams could I ever think I’d sit down with a handsome man from Rome, Italy, to talk about dry vaginas. But sit down I did, with Giorgio Chiozza, to discuss a feminine intimate hygiene line he produces, called Lubrigyn, that he claims relieves vaginal dryness using hormone and paraben-free, completely natural ingredients.

Manufactured by Uniderm, Giorgio’s Rome-based company, Lubrigyn has been successfully selling across Europe since 2004, and now that CVS is carrying it in most of their stores, American women will have the chance to use it, too. When Giorgio recently came to the United States to visit his distribution center in Florida, he and I met so I could learn more about his two products: Lubrigyn Lotion and Lubrigyn Cream. The cream is FDA approved but does not require a prescription.

Lubrigyn Lotion, a creamy, lubricating, moisturizing and cleansing formula, can be used everyday, in the shower as a regular soap substitute, or applied with a tissue, without water, Giorgio told me. Besides its soothing, softening and refreshing ingredients, including sweet almond, jojoba and olive oils, chamomile and aloe vera, the lotion contains sodium hyaluronate, a powerful, active ingredient that attracts and holds on to water.

Used in many of today’s skin care products, sodium hyaluronate is considered the ultimate moisturizer for facial skin. It also helps the vaginal tissue stay supple and moist, Giorgio emphasizes. “Replens, a leading lubricant and moisturizer brand, doesn’t have this active ingredient,” he explains, “nor does any other lubricant in America.” “Lubrigyn also is a cream, not a gel, which allows it to better absorb into the mucous membrane.”

Lubrigyn Lotion doesn’t foam, unlike many other feminine moisturizers and cleansers, which actually allows it to maintain the natural protective barrier of the vaginal tissue, also called the hydrolipidic film. Consisting of water and oils produced by the sebaceous glands, the film retains moisture and protects the skin from germs and fungi. As we age, the film dries out and loses elasticity, which can lead to all sorts of problems, including itching, bleeding and pain during sex.

lotion& wipesBesides menopause, vaginal dryness can be caused by diabetes and antidepressant drugs such as Zoloft. Even younger women, who take birth control pills, can have it.

“Foam is always more aggressive than oils,” Giorgio explained to me. Cleansing is an electrical process. Simply put, the foam makes positive electricity around the dirt on our skin, reacting with our body’s positive electricity, and weakening and removing the hydrolipidic film at the same time it’s removing the dirt. “Lubrigyn preserves it,” Giorgio asserts. So while we usually associate foam with cleansing, it’s actually not a good thing when it comes to our vaginal tissue!

A 7-fluid ounce tube of Lubrigyn Lotion is approximately $12 and should last 45 days. A package of 15 Lubrigyn Wipes is currently included with the lotion, which is mighty handy when we’re traveling. Designed to gently but effectively clean and deodorize our intimate area, the wipes are infused with many of the same ingredients in the lotion and are hydrating.
lubrigyn-cream

Lubrigyn Cream, a more concentrated version of the lotion, contains the same active ingredients, Giorgio said, and can either be used as a vaginal moisturizer, two or three times a day, and/or a lubricating cream before intercourse. “It helps rebuild the collagen in the vagina that is depleted after menopause,” he added, and is effective in relieving more “severe symptoms” of vaginal atrophy. The cream is dispensed with a 1.7 fluid ounce airless pump, and also sells for approximately $12.

I have been using the lotion and cream since Giorgio gave them to me at our meeting, and I highly recommend them. They’re not oily, sticky, or irritating, and the cumulative effect of the cream is definitely noticeable.

Krychman, a gynecologist and sexual health specialist, and to download his clever and colorful guide called How To Get Your Sexy Back: 12 ways to improve your sexual health and well being.signature
