6 Sexy Ways to Feel Empowered for Women's Equality Day
As you may or may not know, today (August 26) is Women's Equality Day. With a historic election around the corner women's votes take on even more meaning for the future of our country.
Women's Equality Day was selected to commemorate the 1920 certification of the 19th Amendment, granting women the right to vote.
Today we seek to create a society where men and women are treated with equal respect and offered equal opportunities. At Lovehoney, we believe equality should extend to our relationships as well.
So, the Lovehoney ladies have come up with 6 super helpful tips for women everywhere to feel self-assured and empowered both in and out of the bedroom.
After all, the first ladies to vote wouldn't want it any other way. Read on for our expert advice, and don't forget to let us know how you keep things balanced when you can have it all.
1. Dress to Impress (Yourself)
Wearing an outfit that makes you feel good about yourself is a great boost, even when you're not wearing it for anyone other than yourself.
Slip on your favorite dress or top, wear some outrageous lingerie under your clothes, or treat yourself to something new - whatever you like to wear, regardless of fashions or rules, just go for it!
2. "Who Am I?"
If you're going to be satisfied in the bedroom, it's important to know exactly what you want and what makes you tick.
Spend some time getting intimate with yourself, either with a sex toy or just using your hands, and find out exactly how you like to be touched. Then, make sure you pass what you've learned onto your lover.
3. Love Yourself
It's all too easy to think about things that we don't like about ourselves, so make a list of everything you DO like! Look at your naked body in the mirror, and instead of homing in on the negatives, consider all the other parts instead.
It can be something big, like you love your boobs or butt, or something tiny, like the fact that you have a cute nose. As you go, you'll build momentum and find that there's really a lot more to like than you might have thought.
4. Knowledge is Power
Sex isn't something you learn about once, and then you're done. It's a constant journey of exploration, and you may find that as you get older or your relationship develops, your tastes have changed.
Write down a list of everything you've ever thought about trying in the bedroom, and then do a little more research into what's involved. Our Buyer's Guides have lots of useful tips to get you started.
5. Sharing is Good
Have a get-together with your friends and share your top sex tips or fantasies with them. After all, you share tips on everything else, so why not sex, too?
It can also be very liberating to find out that other people you know think about the same kind of things that you do, and don't be afraid of being judged - that's part of what accepting yourself is all about.
Finally, we all know that an endorphin rush is a sure-fire way to feel happy and confident, so why not get the blood pumping by going for a workout that's a little different?
Swap the gym for a serious bedroom sesh, take charge and show your lover that switching things up can do wonders for your sex life. Plus, did you know that a half-hour sex session can burn more than 30 minutes of push ups? Now that's a class we can get on board with.
