INTIMATE HYGIENE: JUST A MATTER OF THE NOSE?
Smell is one of the most important senses when it comes to sex. Research aimed at measuring its weight in the choice of a partner is endless, and even without being scientists it is easy to recognize how the smell of our beloved is familiar and seductive to us. "I want your perfume," Gianna Nannini sang in 1986. In the same song she also bellowed "no please don't get soapy", but that's another story: we know very well how an accurate hygiene is essential to present ourselves to an amorous encounter, free from the thought of bad odors but especially of genital infections.
WHY TAKE CARE OF YOUR INTIMATE HYGIENE
The main purpose of a proper intimate hygiene is in fact to preserve the well-being of delicate areas such as vagina, penis and anus and keep away the onset of possible inflammation and infection. Both male and female genital organs are affected by the natural and essential secretions of their glands; secretions that, however, in the absence of special attention, tend to stagnate in the most hidden places, such as the folds between the labia minora and labia majora in the case of women, and the preputial furrow in the case of men. The proximity to the anus favors the passage of additional bacteria, especially for women, exposing them to the risk of incurring unpleasant vaginitis and cystitis. If the idea of anal intercourse comes to mind, for example, in addition to the usual external cleansing, it is advisable to use an anal shower such as Nexus Anal Wash, which helps to clean the anus and the lower part of the rectum, protecting it from unpleasant inconveniences during penetration.
INTIMATE HYGIENE, BUT WITHOUT EXAGGERATING!
Maximum attention to cleanliness, of course, but without exaggerating. If neglect exposes you to the risk of falling victim to germs and bacteria, becoming extremists of hygiene, on the contrary, deprives the genital organs of the "good" bacterial flora, created specifically to defend against external attacks. Banning excessive washing and non-specific products, which do not respect acidity and balance, and green light to formulations friendly to the lower parts.
