If you are trying to get back into the game, you will want to invest in a good lubricant. During and after menopause, women suffer from vaginal dryness. By investing in a good lubricant, you can stop suffering from dry vagina and improve your sex life. You can also reduce vaginal dryness by taking a daily vaginal moisture supplement.

Boost your self-confidence by playing sexy music or by buying some new lingerie. This will help you boost your self-esteem and get both you and your partner in the mood.
Exercising Will Help
