Have you ever experienced a sudden rush of heat and redness during or after sex? Don’t worry; it’s probably sexual flush and it’s entirely natural!
Recently, a client of mine, D, asked me if she was allergic to sex due to a rash she noticed on her neck and chest during a sexual encounter. However, what D experienced was not an allergic reaction but a sexual flush, a typical bodily response to sexual stimulation. In this blog post, we’ll delve deeper into the sexual response cycle and explain why sexual flush is nothing to be worried about.
During our consultation, D explained that she noticed little red splotches on the right side of her neck that went down to her chest, which she found bothersome. Her boyfriend found it cute, but D was still worried about it. So, what’s going on here?
A natural part of the sexual response cycle
Well, my friends, let me introduce you to a natural part of the sexual response cycle: sexual flush. This is what D experienced during sex. Sexual flush is a typical bodily response in some people more prominently than others. It’s a sign that your body is functioning correctly and reacting to sexual stimulation.
The sexual response cycle has several phases, from “vague stirring” or attraction to the final resolution phase. During the excitement and plateau phases, the body experiences heat throughout, especially in the groin area, and other physical signs such as wetness, color changes in the genitals, swelling of the vulva tissue, breast swelling, and nipple erection.
At orgasm, the body experiences a release of sexual tension, including rapid and heavy breathing, darkening of the genitals, opening of the vaginal canal, increased sensations, wetness, and sometimes curling of the toes, and the spread of a sexual flush.
So, dear readers, if you experience a sexual flush during sex, don’t fret.
It’s completely normal and a sign that your body is functioning properly. So instead of viewing it as a nuisance, try to embrace it as a pleasurable ending to sex. This phenomenon could also have led to folks saying, “I’m so hot for you!” Just saying.
Remember, sex is a beautiful and natural part of life, and there is no need to feel ashamed or embarrassed about your body’s responses.
I hope this information has uplifted and empowered you to embrace your sexual self.
So, embrace your sexual self and enjoy the beautiful and natural experience of sex, including the wonderful sexual flush. If you have any concerns or questions I’m here to support you. Remember, you deserve to have a fulfilling and satisfying sex life. Now, go out there and have fun!
