To the peak of pleasure: 6 tips for better sex

Do you want to enjoy beautiful love-making all year round, not just on Valentine's Day? Can't relax properly or feel boredom creeping into your bedroom? In the following article, we will advise you on how to encourage desire, prolong pleasure and deal with difficulties that may arise in your love life. You'll also learn how CBD can help you on your way to better sex.

1. Be honest with yourself

The absolute basis of a happy love life is honest communication . Don't be afraid to say what you like and what you don't like , and ask your partner about it too. Communication should be sensitive and lead to greater pleasure on both sides, not frustration.

Do you have a secret desire but don't know how your partner would react to it? Gather courage and tell him what you desire , maybe his reaction will pleasantly surprise you. And if he doesn't like your idea, at least you'll find out "where you stand" and you can try to come up with something else that will be acceptable to both of you.

If you are sensitive enough to yourself, you can also express your wishes non-verbally . Facial expressions, body posture, gestures, touches, eye contact - all of these are non-verbal means of communication, thanks to which you can understand each other perfectly in bed even without words.

2. Try it differently

Do you feel that your once satisfying sex life is turning into boredom and stereotype ? Do you already know exactly which day, at what time and in what way you and your partner will make love? Then it's time to change it.

If you usually have sex in the evening, make love this time in the morning right after waking up. Try it out new sexual position, make love foreplay special with an ice cube, sexy lingerie or a silk scarf . Replace darkness with daylight or candlelight. Make love in front of the mirror. Take a joint bubble bath, followed by a sensual massage with scented body oil , which will awaken your senses and strengthen the physical and mental connection with your partner.


3. Relax

Certainly you know. When you're stressed and worried, sex is usually the last thing on your mind. You can relieve stress with breathing exercises, yoga, swimming or perhaps a short brisk walk in the fresh air. Take care of body and soul.

CBD (cannabidiol) can also contribute to relaxation during sex. As proven by scientific studies, CBD interacts with the endocannabinoid system , helping to bring the organism back into balance. This non-psychoactive compound from cannabis has the potential to reduce stress and anxiety . There is an abundance of CBD products on the market to choose from:

Look for the causes of stress and emotional imbalance. If nervousness or fear of intercourse is to blame, talk to your partner about it. Try to relax with a warm bath, light scented candles or sticks, create a pleasant environment. Maybe just making love will relieve your nervousness, replenish your energy and improve your mood .

4. Use lubricant

Lubricating gel helps to solve dryness in intimate parts and contributes to a more pleasant and intense sexual experience. For women who suffer from vaginal dryness, sex can be painful, and during intercourse there is a risk of irritation, injury or infection . Lubricants reduce pain and friction and facilitate penetration.

Lubricating gels with CBD are also available on the market today . These can relieve pain and inflammation, increase blood flow and release muscle tension . Scientists have not yet determined whether CBD can directly increase libido . There are not many studies on the effect of cannabinoids on sex life and they are often contradictory. However, when you reduce anxiety and stress, you can also indirectly increase your libido .

Today we already know that the therapeutic effects of cannabinoids are based on the interaction with the endocannabinoid system , with cannabinoid receptors also abundantly found in the genitals . So it's definitely worth trying a lubricant with CBD.

In our offer you will find Hemnia LubriCann , a water-based intimate gel developed for immediate moisturizing, increased comfort and pleasant sensations in the intimate parts . You will also find CBD in the composition of this lubricant. The gel is suitable for both men and women, has a pleasant consistency, is naturally slightly colored and is not perfumed.

5. Experiment with aphrodisiacs

Aphrodisiacs can also help to stimulate desire, pleasure and performance in bed. These substances of natural or synthetic origin promote blood flow to the sexual organs and muscles and increase the level of hormones . In men they can prolong erection or delay ejaculation, in women they can increase sensitivity . They can also affect neurotransmitters such as dopamine and serotonin.

Aphrodisiacs include certain foods, herbs, dietary supplements or chemical substances (Viagra) . Some of the aphrodisiacs listed below are definitely worth trying:

  • Earth anchor - contributes to the normal function of the genitals and helps regulate hormonal activity; it is recommended for erectile dysfunction, but the results of clinical studies in this area are ambiguous.
  • True ginseng – supports vitality, increases libido and prolongs sexual intercourse.
  • Figs – contain minerals such as zinc and magnesium that support sperm production and fertility; amino acids in figs contribute to increasing libido and sexual stamina.
  • Hot peppers – contain capsaicin, a hot substance that increases testosterone levels and improves blood flow.
  • Watermelon – contains many phytonutrients, including lycopene and citrulline. Citrulline is an amino acid that the body converts into l-arginine. L-arginine stimulates the production of nitric oxide, which dilates blood vessels and promotes erection.

Try experimenting with other foods or herbs and feel how they affect you. What will a glass of champagne with strawberries, dark chocolate, banana or pine nuts do to you?


6. Strengthen the pelvic floor

Do you know what Kegel exercises are? This is an exercise aimed at strengthening the muscles of the pelvic floor. These exercises are suitable for both men and women, and in addition to a better sexual experience, they also prevent incontinence in later life . How about them?

  • Find the right muscles - these are the same muscles you use when you try to stop peeing. You can try this to identify them, but otherwise don't do Kegel exercises while urinating, you risk a urinary tract infection due to incomplete bladder emptying.
  • Muscle contraction – tighten your pelvic floor muscles and hold for 3-5 seconds. Don't hold your breath while downloading. Then relax the muscles for 3-5 seconds.
  • Repeat this cycle at least 10 times in a row.

The advantage of Kegel exercises is that they are unobtrusive, so you can perform them basically anywhere and anytime , for example while waiting for the bus or in the office. Venus balls are also suitable for training and strengthening the pelvic floor for women .


A fulfilling relationship includes a fulfilling love life and intimacy. Try to work on sex to strengthen, deepen and enrich your relationship, and not let it turn into a boring or "unpleasant duty". A little thing is often enough to improve your love life, such as sending your partner a love text or taking a bath together. Talk about your wishes, desires, and worries.

If you have problems in your intimate life that you do not know how to deal with, contact an expert (sexologist). CBD can help you relax, relieve stress or nervousness. When stress subsides, your sex drive is likely to increase as well.

Remember that not all difficulties will disappear immediately. Be patient and show your partner that you care.
