Desir’s sex essentials are products that have been introduced with the purpose of making your sexual experience that much more satisfying. From lubes and condoms, to supplements and medically sound intimate care products, our essential category offers you the best complimentary products and must-haves for your sexual health and wellbeing.

What is good sexual health?

Feeling good about your body and taking care of your physical and emotional health are all part of being sexually healthy. Physically this can relate to regular sexual health exams, getting tested for sexually transmitted infections, preventing unwanted pregnancies and having a healthy hygiene regime when it comes to cleaning your sex toys and taking care or your body.

But additionally, your emotional or mental health also has an enormous role to play in your attitude towards sex and your sexual health status. Feeling good about your body, giving yourself permission to enjoy sexual pleasure, and being comfortable with your sexual orientation and gender are huge parts of one’s sexuality and can have a fundamental impact on how you perceive yourself, others, and your sexuality.

How do I have good sex?

Planned parenthood states that good sex comes from understanding how your body works. Whilst sex is not a one size fits all experience, good sex comes down to being confident with your body, knowing what you like and don’t like, and understanding your sex drive and pleasures.

It is in this regard that Desir’s range of Essentials have been carefully curated to ensure that you have the best sex possible, whilst taking care of your sexual health and wellness at the same time.

Sexual Health Supplements

With so many factors impacting our sex lives, one of the biggest contributors is that of low libido or poor sex drive. Science has come a considerably long way in providing formulations that not only increase your sexual libido, but also assist with symptoms related to menopause, erectile dysfunction, vaginal dryness, and stamina.

Brands like Solal have focussed specifically on formulations, vitamins and minerals that contain essential ingredients like vitamin b12, vitamin b6, ginseng, fenugreek, and maca root that are natural testosterone boosting herbs. Not only proven to increase your libido, these ingredients are specifically known to alleviate symptoms related to erectile dysfunction, poor sperm quality, infertility, and are known to positively support and boost male and female sexual function. A completely natural alternative to anabolic and pharmaceutical steroid medicines, brands like Solal, LaMelle, Vitaforce, and Erex provide you with the option of adopting a far more holistic approach to your sexual health.

Stimulants and Enhancers

When it comes to stimulation and increasing your arousal and genital blood flow, several brands like Shunga, Wicked, Intimate Earth, and Pjur focus specifically on products designed to intensify your sexual experience.

From clitoral arousal serums and pleasure gels to aphrodisiacs and prolong sprays, Desir has a range of complimentary serums and elixirs that have been proven to amplify your sexual experience. Use them in conjunction with your favourite intimate product or simply for an increase in your masturbation or solo play

Explore the sensory experience of applying serums that encourage warmth, cooling, tingling, and relaxation and stimulate your nerve endings to encourage stronger orgasms and a heightened sense of arousal.

Personal Care and Product Care

One of the most important aspects to sound sexual health, is that of good personal and product care.

With conditions like bacterial vaginosis, yeast infections, vaginal infections, and STD’s, it is critical to follow a health regime that supports your sexual lifestyle. From intimate toy cleaners and disinfectant wipes, to vaginal douches and condoms, Desir has ensured that you have all you need to practice safe sex and avoid cross-contamination.

WebMd lists the use of a good intimate wash as the number one priority after sex. Not only limited to the cleansing of your genital areas, cleansing of your sex toys is just as important and with the introduction of foam or gel sex toy cleaners, taking care of your sex toys has never been easier.

With much controversy around the practice of douching and specifically with regards to women who douche, douching before or after anal sex (also referred to as rectal douching) is widely practiced to clean the anal area in preparation for sex.

With a variety of douches that range from shower attachment to bulb hand held douching apparatus, douching is best practiced with warm water and should be repeated until the water runs clean. EndHIV provides a word of caution for douching too frequently stating that it can damage the lining of the rectum, making you more susceptible to to HIV infection should you choose to not use a male condom.
