Whether you and your man have a date with naughty intentions or you think tonight might be the first time you’re going to go all the way, it’s a good idea to be prepared. In fact, if you’re up to the challenge, staying on top of your intimate maintenance will mean you’ll be ready to go even when you find yourself in a spontaneous situation.
Shower frequently. This pretty much goes without saying. If you know you’re not going to see your man, then maybe you can slack off a bit on your beauty routine. Otherwise, you should try to clean up a bit before you head to the bar or out on a date. If you showered in the morning, but worked all day, you might want to at least rinse off so you’re feeling fresh. Re-apply deodorant too. It can’t hurt.
Attend your feminine region with care
What a woman does with the hair down there is a personal choice, but unless you really prefer the au naturale look, it’s a good idea to keep up your – ahem – landscaping. You don’t have to grab your razor every day, but your man will definitely appreciate the effort you make to keep things neat and trim. Whether you prefer waxing or shaving, make sure you leave at least a few hours between your beauty regimen and your date. This will give your skin a chance to heal and help avoid irritation that can cause unsightly red bumps.
Touch up your makeup
If you wear makeup, whether it takes you an hour to put your face on or you prefer just a touch of mascara and lip gloss, take an extra second to touch up your work before you head out the door, and keep some essential items in your purse to actually powder your nose.
Another thing you should always have with you is a condom, or a few. This way you don’t ever have to worry if your man is packing protection. If he is prepared too, great. But, if he forgot or just ran out, you’ll be ready, and nothing has to slow the two of you down.
