Mirror mirror, on the wall, who’s the sexiest of them all?
Mirrors in the bedroom might be a 1970s porn cliche, but they also just might be scientifically proven to add some spice into all things sexy and nice. A study published in the Journal of Sexual Health sought to find out whether body awareness improved sexual function in women.
Mirrors, Erotica, and Electrodes, oh my!
Participants in the study placed electrodes on themselves in front of a full length mirror, to ensure they were aware of their bodies, then they were shown erotical to measure their physiological responses and arousal.
The experimental group demonstrated that body awareness does have an impact on sexual arousal.
So what does that mean for sex?
You don’t need to re-plaster the ceiling just yet. Body awareness means being visually, and physically aware of your body. Play such as blindfolds to enhance physical awareness, or mindfulness and meditation can be super sexy all while increasing awareness of your body.
And of course, you can always use a mirror and watch yourselves do the wild thing!
