Spring has sprung in the Pacific Northwest. The tulips are blooming and the cherry blossoms have come and gone. The sun is shining and it’s easier to see all of the dust and grime that has accumulated over the winter.  It’s time for Spring Cleaning!

What about a little spring cleaning for your sex life?

Start by tossing anything that has expired or is broken.

  • Check the expiration date on your condoms or diaphragm (and if you’ve lost or gained weight, get refitted for your diaphragm).
  • Your lubricant has a shelf life. If you can’t remember when you bought it; check the color, scent and consistency to see if it’s time to replace it.
  • Throw out any toys or batteries that aren’t working.

While you’re at it, get rid of anything you don’t use or don’t like.

  • Throw out underwear or lingerie that doesn’t fit or doesn’t make you feel good.
  • Get rid of toys or massage lotion that you haven’t used in ages.
  • Let go of shame or any limiting beliefs or ideas.

Take care of your sexual health.

  • Now is a great time to revisit your birth control. Is it still working for you?
  • Is it time for a visit to your doctor for a check up or for STI testing?

Add some tools to your sexual tool box.

  • Invest in a new toy or accessory.
  • Buy a book, take a class or listen to a podcast about sex.
  • Try something new with your partner.

Give your sexy space a make over.

  • Buy new sheets.
  • Change the lighting (even adding candles can make an difference).
  • Add some artwork.

Are you ready to let go of something or invite something new into your life? It’s a great time to take a sexual inventory and see what you want to change.
