Question: I get really wet down there and it’s embarrassing. Can I control this?
Answer: Though when it comes to sex, I am a firm believer in the mind/body connection, I don’t think the average gal can will herself dry. And really, unless you are gushing buckets, why would you want to?
Getting lubricated is a sign that you are turned on and ready for sex. Being wet helps decrease uncomfortable friction and it can make sex feel a lot better for both partners. Unless you think you might have an infection, it’s not a sign that there is anything wrong. Still not convinced that wet is the way to go? Here are a few things you could try:
- If you have sex with guys, have your partner wear a non-lubricated condom.
- Have sex in the water.
- Go on the birth control pill because one of the side effects can be a decrease in vaginal lubrication.
- Grab a towel and dry off when you feel wetter than you would like.
