“O” My – The Many Benefits of Regular Orgasms

“Happiness is like an orgasm; it’s better if you don’t fake it”.

Orgasm Day

You may need a cold shower after this read, and we’re not just talking about this ridiculous heat wave…

Partnered, alone, “wham, bam, thank you ma’am” or a long, satisfying romp in the sheets – nothing beats a toe-curling orgasm. This amazing gift from our bodies is something to celebrate and we’ll take any chance to do so!

July 31st is National Orgasm Day… and it’s all coming together.

Orgasm Day

And besides being a pleasurable momentary high, there are a few of the mind-blowing health benefits of having regular orgasms.

  1. You Will Sleep Better – Stress, anxiety, insomnia keeping you up at night? Rub one out and release your way to a good night’s sleep.
  2. They Offer Pain Relieving Benefits – Oxytocin is also released when you climax and this hormone is fantastic at helping your body combat pain.
  3. Improvement in Concentration and Memory – Orgasms are great for brain health! Need to study for a test? Make sure to schedule in some loving first.
  4. Improved Cardiovascular Health and Longer Lifespans – Besides burning some calories, all that heart pumping is good for the overall life of your heart. That’s right, the more you’re getting it, or treating yourself right, the longer your heart will take care of you.
  5. They Lead to The Fountain of Youth – Studies have shown that people who regularly masturbate or have fulfilling sex actually appear younger.
  6. Really Great for Your Reproductive Organ Health – The more frequently you’re taking your feel-good parts for a spin, the better off those parts and all their buddies will hopefully be. I’m looking at you, ovaries and prostates.
  7. Happiness – Orgasms don’t only release oxytocin, they also give your brain a welcome punch of serotonin; that’s the rainbows and sparkles of brain chemicals and we can all use some more of that stuff.
  8. THEY FEEL AMAZING!

Orgasm Day

And those are just the main, well-known and proven perks. Imagine all the other amazing things that orgasms are adding to your life. So friend – get you some! Orgasms for all. And we’ve got all the goods you need.

A Guide to Bra Washing – What You Should Know to Extend the Life of Your Bras

A quick Google search on “bra washing” will instantly bring you to article upon article about how to care for your undergarments. But do any of these well-meaning posts really have the best interest of you and your investments in mind? Yes, your bras should be an investment; and one that should be cared for accordingly.

If you’re anything like me though, laundry day is probably your least favourite time of the week. As an example, my daughter once made a sweet, but misguided, public declaration for Mother’s Day claiming that I was the best at doing laundry. All the other parents who knew me well laughed at the irony because getting clothes washed, dried, folded and put away is quite literally my arch nemesis.

However, when it comes to my properly fitting bras and precious matching panties, wash day has become something I look forward to. Knowing that I am doing my best to care for my bras (instead of just throwing them in like a load of bleach and hair dye stained towels), makes me feel glamourous and savvy. By following these simple steps when washing your bras, you too can extend the life of your delicates and save money in the long run.

1. Hand Wash, Hand Wash, Hand Wash!

Taking the time to hand wash is the number one way to extend the fit, shape and overall wearability of your bras. The alternative to washing by hand is machine washing. And if you machine-wash your bras, you may notice some of these tell-tale signs that the machine is doing some damage:

  • the elastic beginning to warp and lose its stretch, leading to an uncomfortable or looser band
  • misshapen cups or underwire, possibly leading to a wire popping out
  • snags in the lace or other delicate, handmade details from rogue hooks or other loose items
  • material beginning to pill or wrinkle, preventing it from looking as luxurious as it once did

Even in a delicates bag on a delicate cycle, you bra was never meant to withstand the beating that a washing machine can offer. Instead, choose your sink or a small wash basin to wash your bras and elegant panties in.

2. Always Use Cold or Cool Water

Hot water is the culprit that is damaging the fibres and elastic in your bras. The heat will loosen the fabric and the once perfect fit you walked away from the store with will no longer exist. Fill the basin with cold water. It will do just as well as hot water because you’re going to…

3. Use A Detergent Made Specifically for Delicates 

There are many great brands that have laundry soaps made just for your undergarments. Without the use of heavy and synthetic chemicals that can break down the fibres in your bra over time, two such options are Forever New and Eucalan. Gentle, clean-rinsing soaps or detergents that are made just for your bras will allow them to hold their shape longer.

4. Hang or Lay Flat to Dry

Again, your bra should be kept far away from intense heat when cleaning it. (However, turning up the heat on the dance floor? That’s up to you!).

If your bra is made of heavier fabrics, such as a moulded bra, be sure to lay it flat to dry so it can better retain its original shape. Hanging a sturdier bra could pull on or stretch the fabric leading to a distorted fit. Lighter fabrics like lace should be safe to hang so long as there’s nothing pulling on them that could change their shape.

Because of these easy steps, and how beautiful my bras are, I now look forward to washing them. I know that I’m doing myself and my bras a favour by properly caring for them. And in turn, am extending their life and my comfort for as long as possible.

The rest of the laundry, however? That’s still going to take some effort…

20 years of FYL

20 Years….How did that happen so quickly? Especially considering I’m still only 29! 😉

20 years for me equals 3 expansions, 2 kids, a husband/business partner that I haven’t killed (yet;), over 20 staff, a website division, in-house photo studio, more changes than I can count (the internet wasn’t even around when I started FYL… Wrap your head around that!), lots of mistakes made & lots of opportunities seized!

Not Your Grandmother’s Bra Store

Picture this: A frustrated woman is shopping at a trendy lingerie store in her local mall. She is surrounded by a pile of 20 or so bras that looked cute on the hanger, but WILL NOT support her beautiful bust. The ill-fitting contraptions she’s trying are pinching, puckering and poking her in all the wrong ways. She sighs.  She knows there are places that might cater to her needs but cannot fathom the fact that she – a modern, fashionable woman – should have to settle for her grandmother’s full support bra. Sound familiar?
