ConCon.org’s Guide to Surviving the Holidays

Despite the holidays being a time filled with joy and cheer, it is often the time of the year that your sex life suffers the most! It can be challenging juggling family visits, shopping, and the million other things on your to-do list while still making time to be intimate with yourself or a partner.

Below are our top 5 tips for helping your sex life survive the holiday season!

1. Make time for yourself.
Despite being off of work or out of school, holiday time can very easily get filled with all different kinds of activities. Consciously set aside time for yourself or for you and your partner to be intimate. If this is something you haven’t done before, I highly suggest trying it on a regular basis because it will give you something to look forward to and remind yourself to let go and experience pleasure.
2. Get in the holiday spirit.
Even if you are a bit bah humbug during the winter make a romantic gesture with some holiday cheer that will surely lift your spirits. Do something playful like setting up some mistletoe, put on some sexy holiday lingerie or get into some holiday role play with a naughty and nice list.
3. Rechargeable, rechargeable, rechargeable.
Make sure if you are traveling or having guests that your toys are rechargeable! This will ensure much quieter and discreet play and you can be sure to charge them before the holidays so no one will find them charging next to your other electronic devices. You can check out rechargeable toys here: http://www.concon.org/catalogsearch/result/?q=rechargeable
4. Treat yourself.
Check out these holiday shopping guidelines to help find something for yourself or your partner.  A new toy can be the perfect thank you for putting your partner through a family visit or boring office party.
5. Accept the challenge.
Maintaining your sex life around holidays can be quite the challenge, but remember to have fun with it! Get creative and come up with games like tallying up favors for each embarrassing story your family tells or who can sing the better version of “Santa Baby,” of course in that holiday lingerie ;)

ConCon.org Contraceptive Highlight: Trojan-Enz Spermicidal Lubricated Condoms

These condoms are generally very highly reviewed as being both reliable and comfortable. Not only are they generally comfortable to wear, but they also bring comfort to the mind by having spermicidal lubricant added. This lubricant can also add positively to the experience by feeling more realistically moist and the lack of friction for non-lubricatedcondoms.

Spermicide uses a detergent called nonoxynol-9 which is basically a detergent that breaks down a component of sperm. Spermicide can be somewhat controversial because its chemical nature which can cause an allergic reaction. This is problematic because the allergic reaction may cause micro-tears in the skin which can increase the rate STI’s and HIV transmission. Be sure to test out some form of spermicide on your skin before engaging in activity in which fluid exchange can occur.
Also be aware that the taste of this product on condoms may alter the experience so perhaps choose a different condoms if engaging in oral sex. Overall the addition of spermicide to condoms can provide added pros and cons to condoms usage it all depends on the user and what makes them feel most comfortable and safe!

Condom buying guide - avoid awkward in store encounters!

For many of us, it takes a lot of guts to waltz into a grocery or drugstore to buy condoms. Perhaps you stroll down the aisle pretending to look at toilet paper while you nervously glance around to see if the coast is clear. You don’t want to linger too long for the fear or running into someone or being judged, but gosh the print on those condoms boxes is so small! And c’mon how many different condoms choices does a person really need?  Maybe it isn’t the actual picking up the condoms that is uncomfortable but that look the clerk gives you in the check out lane. Either way the drugstore condoms dash is not for the faint of heart or the person who might need those extra few minutes checking out different brands. But not to fear my uneasy shoppers! Here at Conscious Contraceptiveswe are about to get meta by starting the Conscious Contraceptives – Contraceptive Highlight!

It would only seem appropriate to start with the basics – Trojan Enz Non-Lubricated condoms.

Trojan Enz Non-lubricated - Box Of 3

Trojan Enz Non-lubricated – Box Of 3

These condoms are made of latex and are the “classic” condoms. They are not lubricated which for some is great because it means the condoms may stay in place prevented the slip of some experience with lubricated condoms. This is a perk for some because having a condom that doesn’t slip around can allow for folks to be more focused on the experience rather than worried about the condoms. At the same time many people saycondoms without lubricant can be challenging because lubricant can make wearing acondoms feel more realistic in regards to moisture. I would suggest this condoms as a starting place if you are new to using barrier methods to get a feel for your preference. This is also a great condoms to use if you do not like the bells and whistles of manycondoms on the market and just need reliable protection.
