As part of the MENOPAUSEX campaign.

Lou Featherstone learned to embrace her sexuality after receiving a d-ck pic post-divorce and since then, she’s been teaching femmes worldwide how to do the same. Her latest sex-positive collaboration, MENOPAUSEX, spills all the tea on how to keep things sexy and fun — post-menopause.

With ageism and fear of menopause running amuck, you’ve probably been told that your sex life has to suffer as you age. However, a recent study revealed that “not all women experience a drop in libido after the age of 40.” In fact, “those who regularly have orgasms experience an improvement in mood swings, vaginal dryness and sleep problems, which are the most common symptoms of menopause.”

As part of the MENOPAUSEX campaign, sex toy company FUN FACTORY and vulvovaginal wellness brand Momotaro Apotheca, “have joined forces to support women and their sex lives ahead of World Menopause Day on October 18,” shared the exclusive press release. The collaboration features 15 sexual wellness products ranging from sex toys and menstrual cups to tonics and body oils that enhance self-intimacy.

So, to curb the ageist stigma, Featherstone is sharing her secrets to elevating your sex life as you age. Keep reading for all the tea from Featherstone, herself.

Send yourself nudes

“Take pictures of your body when you feel sexy. NOT FOR ANYONE ELSE BUT FOR YOU!
Know your body and listen to it. Treat yourself to nice underwear. To me, that’s comfy grey granny pants — but they make me feel sexy for myself.”

Lube is your new best mate

“Sex certainly changes as you age. Vaginas can vary in juice — particularly middle-aged, menopausal ones. Don’t feel embarrassed or ashamed if things aren’t as juicy as they used to be.”

Explore sex toys

“The benefits of orgasms are scientifically proven to improve your mood, skin, health and general well-being. You don’t need anyone else for them, but they can add some fun to partnered sex too.

Try introducing a sex toy into your life. The FUN FACTORY Stronic Petite is a great toy to introduce into your life and a great place to start. Its gentle thrusting motion literally gives your vagina a good work out and regular use improves blood flow and increases juice.

I didn’t start using vibrators until the end of my 20 year marriage and it has been a revelation! The more I wank — the sexier I feel. I’ve discovered parts of me I never knew or understood and it’s given me confidence that I had lost or maybe never even had! It helped me fall in love with my body.”

Fall in love with your changing body.

“Keep moving every day. Dance in the kitchen, swim, lift weights, find your joy — but keep active.
Weight fluctuations are part of the aging process so eat as healthily as you can without denying yourself the pleasure of a cream cake.”
