(And What You Can Do To Fix It)Ever notice that once you are in a relationship for awhile the juiciness wanes a bit? Maybe you’re not as wet as you were when you first met. Maybe you just aren’t having the sex you once did when everything was new. The butterflies in your stomach aren’t quite as active, anticipation has faded, maybe the excitement that once was is no longer.
Don’t get me wrong. It’s likely that all of those feelings, sensations and emotions have been replaced with comfort, stability and ease. Trust builds over time. Which definitely has its own yumminess.
But here you are 1 or 10 years later wondering why your vagina is dry? Are you just not turned on by him anymore? Is it his fault? Is it yours?
Whoa. Slow down girl. Let’s talk about some of the real possibilities.

September 4th was World Sexual Health Day.
I am a little behind with this post. But let's talk about sexual health anyway!
What is sexual health? The World Health Organization describes it like this:
Sexual health is a state of physical, mental and social well-being in relation to sexuality. It requires a positive and respectful approach to sexuality and sexual relationships, as well as the possibility of having pleasurable and safe sexual experiences, free of coercion, discrimination and violence.
So good, right?
Wellbeing. Being well in my physical body, my mental body and in my community or socially. Sexually well. What a concept. And when we look at that world wide, we have a ways to go. Violence is real. Coercion is real. Rape is real. Genital mutilation is real. It can be rather depressing to think about. But I want to bring it closer to home. Change starts with you and me, and if we can focus on our own sexual health my knowing is that it ripples out into the world. So what about you?
What is your sexual health like? Let me ask you a few questions and you can assess.
