How To: Vulvar Massage
The vulva consists of all the external genital parts on the female body. This includes the mons pubis, clitoris, clitoral hood, labia minora, labia majora, vaginal opening, perineum, and urethral opening. Vulvar massage can be very beneficial in treatment of symptoms of some sexual dysfunctions, erotic foreplay, and building intimate connection.
Specifically, vulvar massage is used to help treat sexual and relationship issues such as:
- Communication issues between partners (when partner is giving the massage)
- Pelvic Pain
- Sexual shame
- Vaginal atrophy
- Female Orgasmic Disorder (anorgasmia)
- Female Sexual Interest/Arousal Disorder (low desire)
Vulvar massage brings fresh oxygenated blood to the parts of the vulva, pelvic floor, and vaginal opening. This rejuvenates the tissue, relaxes the pelvic floor, and can increase the overall health of the pelvic region. If your partner is the giver of the massage it can also increase intimate connection and sensual bonding. This type of massage can feel very good but special care should be taken due to the sensitive tissue and nerve endings surrounding the area.
