Note that for women, it’s crucial to cleanse around your v@gin@, rather than inside it.

The surface of your skin then becomes the perfect environment for fostering an infection, which may even result in an unpleasant v@gin@l odor. Sticking with loose garments after s3x helps to prevent this.

While it’s imperative to be open and honest with your partner, conversations regarding physical intimacy should occur before, not after, s3x.
