4. Save Power & Water
Sorry shower sex lovers, I’m about to burst your bubble. Though it can be fun to ‘get jiggy with it’ while the hot water runs over your thrashing bodies; watch your water consumption. Alternatively, if you can wash while making love (good on you for multitasking), you could actually save water by showering together! Whatever the case: watch your water usage. To save even more energy, turn the lights off when you’re ‘doing it’ and use natural light, like a candle (that part’s easy). Conserve power and water. Get back to basics.
5. Eco-friendly Lingerie
If you’re going to have sex eco-style, you should really look the part. A nice lacy nightie from Kmart does not scream sexy, but an organic, ethically made piece from an eco lingerie company is bound to get your partner straight into bed (speaking from experience). My personal favourites are Azura Bay and I’ve been eyeing up a few pieces at Troo too. For a full lingerie guide, make sure you check out The Green Hub’s Ultimate Guide to Ethical Sustainable and Organic Underwear Brands to see what tickles your fancy.
6. Thoughtful Contraception
Your body is yours, and it’s completely up to you how you want to manage your contraception. With this in mind, look into options that are not only good for your body and life situation but try your best to consider the planet in your decisions too. You may find this guide to eco-friendly contraception methods helpful in making your decision.
To wrap things up before you head off to try out your new eco-friendly sex techniques (wink wink), remember that making sweet love is first and foremost about the physical and emotional health of you and your partner. Be gentle with your partner when discussing your suggestions to eco switches, and only practice what you are both comfortable with.
Keeping the planet in mind while making sweet love is a wonderful way to preserve mother earth, and protect the planet for offspring that may sprout from your eco-friendly acts.
