With Valentine's Day this upcoming weekend, I wanted to do a bit of a partner post!
*I am not one to talk about my personal sex life, so I am going to keep this post a little more for the general audience.*
Making love is one of the most beautiful things that we can do as people. The connection, the intimacy, the release. Just a wonderful experience can be had by all. That is...as long as you can safely get into those positions to make it wonderful.
Sometimes we are a little bit too tight in certain muscles to be flexible enough for certain positions. There is nothing that can kill the mood more than going to do some new, fun, and exciting position, getting halfway into it then realizing that it's just not happening. This can make you feel inadequate, lacking, and you can even get hurt attempting it! That's why I'm giving you this list of stretches to do before you get BUSY!
The few areas we really want to focus on today are Hips, Spine, Inner Thigh, and Glutes! All of these are integral parts of intimacy, so I'll give you a couple stretches to help open them up!
First are our hips. This simple hip flexor opener is incredibly effective in giving you more mobility and range of motion.
Starting with your first knee on the floor and your other foot straight in front of you, you're going to lean your body forward to open that hip. It's very important that you keep your upper body tall so to get a nice full stretch! Do this for 30-60 seconds or until you feel you've gotten as stretched as you safely can, then switch sides and repeat.
Next we're going to open through your spine. There are two really good stretches that you'll want to do for this and they are both really easy to get into!
Starting with a frog stretch, while on your knees, open them wide and bring your feet together. from here you will want to sit yourself back into them and lay your upper body on the floor. This is really great for opening your lower back and focusing a little closer to your hips.
