The holiday season is a time to exchange gifts, give, and receive. Any parent knows that most of this gifting focus is placed on the kids, but what about us? If we consider that studies show that the act of giving and receiving is good for our health (more on that in a moment), then we can begin to understand why we need to also prioritize our own experience. And yes, we’re talking about gifts that come wrapped in paper and bows, but also something else.
Apply this giving and receiving exchange to sexual pleasure, and the same thing applies. A vital part of any healthy partnership, putting the spotlight on giving and receiving pleasure has a list of surprising and compelling benefits. Jumping under the sheets to put this into practice isn’t always a simple thing, however, especially when life is pressured and busy. So, we’re highlighting the ways you can boost your pleasure this Christmas and beyond, and where CBD fits into the picture.

From a health perspective (from your mind to the tips of your tingling toes), sex is linked to everything from relieving stress to improving your sleep.

If these kinds of thoughts are familiar, you’re in good company. You only need to check out questions like this on the internet to see many people are asking the same things.
So, let’s clear a couple of things up straightaway – first, there is no “normal” amount of sex. Everyone is different, and every relationship is different. The important thing is that you are both satisfied. This part can be tricky and being honest with yourself about how satisfied you are, and with each other, is step one. It’s common in relationships to have bumps in the road with this. But reminding yourself of the benefits of sex will help. And what about thinking about giving and receiving pleasure as the focus of your sex life? Here are all the powerful reasons to reframe it:
