No one wants to take a ride down a water-slide without any water—the same applies for that bump and grind between the sheets, because it really is better down where it’s wetter, and it sure as hell makes the ride a lot more fun!
“Darling, it’s better down where it’s wetter…” ~ Sebastian (The Little Mermaid)
So, don your snorkel mask and get ready to dive deep.
Here are some surprising ways that drinking plenty of water during the day can guarantee you and your lover will have great sex tonight!
Wet ‘N Wild.
Our beautiful bodies are composed of about 60% water. The functions of these bodily fluids include creation of saliva, vaginal lubrication and maintenance of body temperature. Whether we are after a bit of oral foreplay or a quick round of hide the cannoli, we really don’t want dryness to be an issue.
Slip ‘N Slides are only fun because they are wet and slippery—just like we should be.
If we’ve been out partying the night before, or haven’t been drinking at least 64 ounces of water a day, no amount of stimulation can make up for that.
Making sure we have hydrated our bodies is an important part of staying lubricated, both in our mouths and our naughty bits.
If water really isn’t your thing, experts say drinking juice or flavored water can be just as beneficial. If you decide to take this route, then try some pineapple juice.
Pineapple is one of the few fruits that when ingested actually make a woman taste that much sweeter. Talk about having your cake and eating it too!
Keep it Up.
Muscle fatigue is a real thing—cells that aren’t well hydrated can’t maintain their balance, flexibility and electrolytes, will actually shrivel. If muscle cells don’t have adequate fluids, they don’t work as well and performance (of any kind) can suffer.
Try lifting and pressing your partner against the wall for a little bit of sensual face time, and if you aren’t well hydrated, your muscles may not be up for the challenge. Same goes for the ladies, hot woman-on-top positions like The Erotic Rollercoaster or are amazing but we won’t be able to enjoy the ride if our thighs are burning from dehydration.
Staying hydrated means our muscles will let us enjoy each and every penetrating thrust—so Giddy Up partner and you’ll be guaranteed a wild ride.
Our skin is our biggest organ—sorry guys, to break this news to you—it’s not your Johnson!
During most forms of sex, our skin is the main dish.
In order for our skin to be in the best possible shape, we need to make sure we are hydrated.
Our skin contains plenty of water, and is a protective barrier to prevent fluid loss. Dehydration can actually make our skin look dry and wrinkled, which can be improved when we drink enough. We all want to look our best when we are on display for our lover—and making sure that we drink enough fluids during the day is crucial to us looking our most delicious.
In addition to staying hydrated, using a light oil like sesame, almond or coconut after the shower can help lock moisture into our skin as well. For some amazing foreplay tonight, why not ask your lover to help massage the oil into your skin after the shower?
Just remember that we get slippery when wet!
It is recommended that adults get approximately 64 ounces of water a day to maintain optimal health. Many people have lost the taste for plain water, so doctors say that substituting it with any liquid other than alcohol (sorry folks!) is acceptable, just remember that juices are packed full of sugar and calories.
Some easy ideas experts suggest are to have a beverage with every snack and meal, to eat more fruits and vegetables because about 20% of our fluid intake comes from the foods we eat, and keeping a bottle of water with us in our car, at our desk or in our bag.
So, go pour yourself a tall, cold glass of water, and drink up buttercup!
In a few hours your skin will be more radiant, your muscles increasingly flexible and your body just a little wetter.
And remember for the best results, just add water.
I’m already dripping, how about you?
