You may have heard the urban legend that certain fruit (say, pineapples) can make vaginal or seminal fluid taste, well, fruity. That’s not quite accurate. While your diet certainly can affect your bodily secretions, there’s no evidence that eating certain foods (even in massive quantities) will change the taste of your fluids. Even if it did, it would be subtle. It’s still a vagina after all. So basically, don’t eat a whole pineapple in the morning and expect to taste like a tropical oasis at bedtime. Instead think of food foreplay more as an easy way to get all your senses involved during sex—and to satisfy any munchies you might have before your mouth gets busy doing other stuff.

We all respond differently to stress. Some of us shut down sexually, while others feel a strong desire for connection. The last thing any of us needs is to be more stressed than we already were about where we fall on this spectrum. However your sex drive is responding to the state of things right now is completely okay. Read on to get tips (and a heads up about any potential weirdness) for your sign.

Because you’re worth it

These days, we might tend to think of self-care as an indulgence in some pleasure that takes our minds off the daily grind. Many of our more public forms of relaxation (going out with friends, seeing a movie, going to the salon) have been limited because of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. There also might be less money to go toward self-care as unemployment keeps rising and business are still shuttered in some places. Although the glow-up of a fresh set of nails is undefeated, self-care doesn’t have to be limited to goods or services you can buy.

Don't panic, it's normal

It’s safe to say everyone’s lives have been upended by the coronavirus. But what happens when your sex life starts to disappear because of it? If you’re quarantined with your partner, it can be easy for people to assume you’re getting it on the regular. You’re home more often than usual with all those opportunities to have sex in the kitchen, on the couch, and maybe even in the bed. But these aren’t exactly regular times, are they? And plenty of people are finding that despite having more opportunities to do so, they just don’t want to have sex right now. So how do you get back in the groove if the pandemic is wrecking your libido?

How to put that oversized t-shirt to work

It’s always a good time to shake up your bedroom routine. If you’re feeling out of ideas, try taking a cue from the clothes you wear to bed. Lingerie can definitely spice up a romp in the hay, but what about those Tuesdays when you want to get it on in your regular-schmegular undies? We’ve got you covered. Whether you love wearing lace bralettes or t-shirts to bed, you can always take sexy inspiration from your night clothes if you want to try something different.
