Kama Sutra preparation - Hygiene

The beginning of any lovemaking session should always start with a bath or shower.

One of the most important thing for lovers to remember before sex is hygiene. No-one wants to go to bed with a smelly partner.

Your breath is an important thing to consider when in bed with someone. You are in close contact with that person throughout the session, and if your breath smells like a dustbin, you can be certain your night of lovemaking will be cut short.

The Kama Sutra suggests that ‘sweet breath will make for a positive sensual relationship’. It goes on to emphasise ‘good oral hygiene’, and ‘a good diet’. Drinking more than 5 cups of water a day will help perfume your breath. Don’t forget to brush your teeth and tongue thoroughly before and after sex.

But hygiene does not have to be a solitary affair. Why not take a bath or a shower together in preparation for a night of sex. Bubble baths are great too, and don’t forget the candles.
