The Guide to Sex and Perimenopause

Perimenopause is a chapter in life filled with transformation and new beginnings, especially when it comes to your sexual well-being. At Wicked Sensual Care, we understand that the journey through perimenopause can bring about changes that affect intimacy and pleasure. Our goal is to provide insightful guidance and innovative solutions to help you navigate this stage with knowledge and confidence. In this blog, we delve into the essentials of maintaining a vibrant sex life during perimenopause, spotlighting the significance of personal lubricants, the exploration of perimenopause-friendly toys, and inclusive care for trans men and non-binary AFAB individuals experiencing these changes.

Understanding Perimenopause

Perimenopause marks the transitional phase leading up to menopause, characterized by fluctuating hormone levels. This period can span several years, during which you might experience a variety of symptoms affecting your sexual health, including vaginal dryness, decreased libido, and changes in sexual sensation.

  • Perimenopause is the precursor to menopause, highlighted by hormonal fluctuations.
  • Symptoms are varied and can include vaginal dryness, a decrease in libido, mood swings, body pain, and changes in sexual sensation.
  • Recognizing these changes is the first step in adapting your sexual wellness routine.

As we begin to understand the landscape of perimenopause, it’s crucial to explore how personal lubricants can play a transformative role in enhancing intimate experiences.

The Role of Personal Lubricants in Perimenopausal Care

Personal lubricants are indispensable allies during perimenopause, addressing vaginal dryness and enhancing comfort during sex. Opting for high-quality, perimenopause-specific lubes can significantly improve sexual pleasure and ease discomfort.

  • Personal lubricants mitigate vaginal dryness and discomfort.
  • They enhance sexual pleasure by reducing friction.
  • Choosing lubricants formulated for perimenopausal symptoms is key to comfortable sex.

Diving deeper into the subject, we discover the variety and importance of selecting the right type of lubricant.

Selecting the Best Perimenopause Lube for You

Navigating the array of personal lubricants available can be overwhelming. For those undergoing perimenopause, it’s important to select lubes that are gentle, hydrating, and designed to mimic natural lubrication, such as the innovative options in our simply® Timeless™ collection.

  • Hydrating ingredients such as aloe and sodium hyaluronate are beneficial.
  • Products free from glycerin, parabens, and propylene glycol are preferable.
  • The simply® timeless™ collection offers formulas tailored to perimenopausal needs.

Sex toys can be a fantastic way to explore new avenues of pleasure during perimenopause, especially when paired with the right lubricant. Whether solo or with a partner, toys designed for perimenopausal individuals can help in rediscovering what feels good as your body changes.

  • Sex toys add excitement and exploration to sexual experiences.

  • Pairing toys with suitable lubricants enhances comfort and enjoyment.


Perimenopause for Trans Men and Non-Binary AFAB 

Considering the diverse experiences of those navigating perimenopause, it’s important to acknowledge the unique challenges faced by non-binary AFAB individuals.

Perimenopause affects all who have a uterus, including non-binary AFAB (assigned female at birth) individuals. Recognizing the diverse needs and experiences of non-binary people during this transition is crucial for providing inclusive and affirming care.

  • Perimenopause impacts non-binary AFAB individuals, necessitating inclusive care.
  • Acknowledging diverse experiences enriches understanding and support.
