That’s not to say that it’s wrong to take a sex break now and then. Life gets in the way, or we may be between relationships and it’s just not part of our daily life equation. Or we’re maybe just not in the mood.
Whether we’re not feeling our best or are under a lot of of stress, sex sometimes just stops happening. And that’s more than OK — we just need to accept that our bodies are going to respond and react in a major way.
And the part of the body that suffers most? Our vaginas, of course. Brain games keep your mind agile, cardio workouts build your heart health, weight training makes your muscles strong, and sex keeps your vagina in tiptop shape.
“Your vagina is a use it or lose it organ. Stimulation brings oxygenated, nutrient-rich blood to the vagina and vulva, which helps to keep the tissue supple, elastic, and lubricated. If you’re not having regular sex with a partner, it’s essential keep your vagina happy and healthy with masturbation. Self-pleasure brings all these benefits,” says Tristan Weedmark of We-Vibe.
Below, we’re sharing all the ways our vaginas lose out when we stop having regular sex.
1. It doesn’t get tighter— that’s a myth!
Taking a break from sex doesn’t tone the pelvic floor, “tighten” the vagina, or cause the hymento reappear.
“If it feels as though your vagina is tighter after you’ve taken a hiatus from sex, it may be more related to tension or a lack of comfort/arousal. If you’re a little nervous diving back in, take your time, use lube, and wait until your arousal levels are high before sliding anything inside,” says Dr. Jess, Astroglide’s resident sexologist.
