How To Clean Up After Sex

Sex Clean Up 101

We know a few things about post-romp cleanup. Together with Awkward Essentials we wanted to bring to you the low down on clean up down below. Sounds straight forward but sometimes we are left with some sweat, stick and grime that doesn't need to stick around.  Awkward Essentials provides personal solutions for personal problems. It all started with the Dripstick, the first-of-its-kind after sex cleanup sponge and today they offer solutions that include a disposable pee funnel Mainstream (hello, standing when you pee), StickyTits silicone nipple covers and,  Not Just Fucking Wipes. Made of only 2 ingredients, water and aloe, safe for any parts and partners. 

Here are our “To-Dos” after getting it done:

Pee after sex

  • Pee please! Sex drives bacteria into the urethra, which is the tube that carries urine from the bladder out of the body. When bacteria finds its way inside, it can lead to an unpleasant urinary tract infection (UTI). Peeing after sex helps to flush the bacteria out. Be sure to wipe from front to back to halt the spread of infection.

Semen can disrupt pH try a dripstick!

  • Lose the sticky. If you don’t enjoy the mess or just have places to be, give your downstairs a tidy up. Soak up excess fluid without disrupting the vagina’s natural pH balance with Dripstick. Just grip, insert, twirl and toss. Pair Dripsticks with new Not Just Fucking Wipes to tackle the outside. Bonus: Not Just Fucking Wipes are great for all partners!

Clean your toys

  • Clean those toys: When you’re done using them, always clean your sex toys thoroughly to prevent them from holding onto bacteria, viruses, and fungi. Toys can hold onto pathogens that spread sexually transmitted diseases and other infections. Note that some sex toys have specific cleaning instructions, so check for what’s compatible with your sex toys or purchase an all-purpose sex toy cleaner.

Use Momotaro Apotheca Salve

  • Continue the TLC. Hydrate, relax in some loose, comfy bottoms and bask in the afterglow. Downstairs feeling a little sensitive? Momotaro Apotheca’s salves and tonics will have your vagina feeling the love long after the love making ends.
