Sexual health experiences trends like anything else. So what are the fads and fashions that you can expect to hear more about in the year ahead?
According to wellness forecasters, we’re all going to be having meaningful connections in the coming year and focusing on the intimacy of sex rather than, say, hooking up for the night. Forecasters who apparently know about these things believe that the trends that are focusing on mental wellbeing will shift across into the way that we have sex and focus on a holistic experience. Expect to see therapies, classes and books that encourage couples to nurture those connections.
Yes, it’s not really a trend. We know that it’s been around forever. But this year you can expect it to become more discussed, more mainstream and more female-centred. It’ll certainly be a topic that spans both women’s magazines and the health press as part of a holistic approach to integrated health.
Think less about weightlifting and more about those Kegel exercises for your pelvic floor. Building a stronger pelvic floor helps you to enjoy better orgasms and to avoid issues such as incontinence. The entire topic of pelvic floor health will come to the forefront of health discussions this year as well as related dysfunction issues that can occur through childbirth and other situations. Expect to see more awareness of the role of female-centred physiotherapists and services that support pregnant and post-partum women too.
