Best Adult Toys from TENGA to Upgrade your Sexual Wellness

In the last few years, the term ‘sexual wellness’ is used quite a lot online in discussions surrounding both sex and masturbation issues. But what is sexual wellness? In this article we’ll be discovering what this term means, why it is important, TENGA’s thoughts on sexual wellness, and some products we’d suggest for you to use.


What is Sexual Wellness?

Firstly, let’s start by taking a closer look at the origins of the term ‘sexual wellness’ and what people currently use the term for.

The Origins of Sexual Wellness

The term Sexual Wellness has only been commonly used recently, but the term "Sexual Health" which it is commonly associated with has been around for some time. The notion of sexual health has grown since the World Health Organization (WHO) started discussing the concept more in 1975, defining sexual health as “[the] well-being across a range of life domains (e.g., physical, mental, and emotional) rather than simply the absence of disease or other adverse outcomes.”.

Sexual health became common vernacular outside of medical professionals around 1988 and has been on an upward trend but it wasn’t until around the early 2000s that the term Sexual Wellness started growing in use. Let’s take a look at how the term tends to be used in recent years. 

Modern Meaning of Sexual Wellness

In the last couple of years there has been a sharp rise of discussions surrounding sexual wellness, but what do people mean when they say ‘sexual wellness’ now? Sexual wellness is defined by the World Health Organization as a combination of physical, mental, and social well-being and wellness that can be connected with sexuality. The recent increase in awareness about sexual wellness encourages you to take a positive and respectful approach to both sexuality and sexual relationships. 

When solely for yourself, whether in a relationship or not, this can involve an understanding of the importance of masturbation as part of a self-care routine. It includes not being embarrassed of satisfying your sexual needs through self-pleasure.

When considering Sexual Wellness involving partner(s), it helps ensure that people strive to have a safe and pleasurable relationship without using any kind of pressure. This can include encouraging feeling comfortable with your partner and getting accurate, diverse perspectives about sexual issues so you can choose what will support your own sexual wellness. 

Why is Sexual Wellness Important?

Sexual wellness is an important part of our physical and emotional health. Our sexuality is a natural and healthy element of who we are as individuals. It’s an essential expression of our emotions and individual beliefs that can help us to connect with people around us. If you increase your understanding of your personal sexual wellness, it may help to improve your self-confidence surrounding your own body and sexuality.

Benefits of Sexual Wellness

Sexual wellness isn’t just about either sex or masturbation, it is related to our overall wellness, the condition of our relationships, how we feel about ourselves, as well as to our emotional and physical well-being. We have covered in the past how sex and masturbation may provide benefits such as:

How Sex Toys can Make your Sex Life Better.

Although sex toys can be used during solo masturbation, there are various sex toys available today meant to be used both solo or as a couple, during foreplay and during sex. Most products on the market are not made to replace sex, but rather to enhance it, making sure both you and your partner are satisfied.

Sex toys also offer the perfect opportunity to discover what feels good for you. For example, you can use a vibrator to explore different erogenous zones and find what kinds of stimulation feels best for you or for your partner.
