Celebrate this year’s National Sex Day with a ~bang~

Here are four tips just for you from the Bellesa team to kick off this annual 6/9 sex-positive shindig.

1. Watch porn with your partner

It’s time to dispel the myth that watching porn as a couple is unhealthy. This idea is totally, utterly whack.

According to psychologist David Schnarch, “Porn can actually help foster emotional and sexual intimacy, and [erotic images] can be useful tools for helping [couples] develop as adults”.

If you’re both watching it separately (which, let’s be real... you probably are), why not spend an evening in and watch some together? It’s great foreplay, it can inspire you to experiment more, and it’s an easy way to learn about your partner’s fantasies without anyone feeling embarrassed. 

2. Get up-to-date on your sexual health 

What better way to feel confident and sexy this June than knowing that you’re healthy? Depending on where you live, access to STI testing can vary. If you’re in the U.S., use this search tool to find the nearest Planned Parenthood in your town. In Canada, clinics vary provincially, but most family doctors/GPs perform free testing.
