Lube is always a good idea, especially if you’re trying out something new that could make you feel a little nervous. Another thing you should be wary of is the fact that THC tends to dry up your mouth and slow your body’s production of liquids, something doesn’t really translate to pleasant sex. Keep your lube nearby and stay hydrated.
Play with new sensations
Test out new toys or sensations, taking advantage of your body’s newly acquired sensitivities. Again, it’s important to take it slow in order to avoid getting overwhelmed, steering clear of scenarios that are too intense. Go crazy with an ice cube, some lube or whatever else that sounds like a good time.
