The vagina is an incredible place. It’s a self-regulating, baby-birthing, pleasure-inducing work of wonders. So what happens when your lady parts don’t behave the way you want them to? Why do some women have a hard time getting wet?
Studies have shown that sexual dysfunction is more common among women than men, and that 50 percent of women report issues with staying wet naturally. Vaginal dryness is often related to estrogen levels, but it can also be linked to autoimmune disorders, cold and allergy medications, antidepressants, and (surprise!) not enough foreplay before sex. And while dryness of the vaginal walls makes for an unsatisfying sex life, it can also create an environment for unwanted bacteria to thrive. Learning how to get really wet naturally will solve many of these problems.
So, let’s talk about the 6 best ways to get really wet naturally. Many general practitioners will recommend topical estrogen or hormone therapy, however, mainstream synthetic hormone therapy (HRT) has a laundry list of dangers including an increased risk of heart disease, breast cancer, and blood clots. If you suspect hormones are at play and you have not checked your hormone levels in the last six months, consider a Dutch Test and work with a functional medical doctor to get bioidentical hormones created at a compound pharmacy with minimal ingredients just for you.
Below are 6 things you can do to increase your pleasure, get a wet vagina naturally, and keep the sexy fluids flowing:
These days, live beneficial bacteria seems to be the answer to everything. From flora capsules to fermented foods, there’s a myriad of ways to ingest the good bacteria that will help your body flourish. Your gut biome is where it’s at.

2. Slime Rules
One of the most wonderful things about nature is its ability to mirror the human body’s natural process. When you’re aroused, the increased blood flow around your vagina produces a transparent, slippery fluid called mucilage. The same type of fluid is also present in a variety of foods and herbs and can help sustain the slippery, luscious juices that occur when you are aroused.
Try to include more okra and flaxseeds in your diet and also look into plants such as slippery elm, Irish moss, licorice, comfrey, coltsfoot, mullein, and cornsilk which all contain mucilage and can help you get really wet naturally, and stay wet longer.
3. Take Your Vitamins
Numerous clinical trials have shown the importance of increased vitamin intake when dealing with vaginal dryness as well as a host of other estrogen related symptoms. Vitamins A and E are productive to the cells that line the vagina and Vitamin D3, in particular, is linked to extremely positive results. And of course the anti-aging superhero Vitamin C, which is involved in the synthesis of sex hormones and can help build collagen to promote elasticity and lubrication. Consider a liposomal vitamin C that integrates seamlessly with your body by fusing directly with cells in your gut.
4. Use It Or Lose it
Staying sexually active is the key to a healthier body, so it makes sense that consistent excitation down there can keep things wet and ready. Sex and masturbation help maintain blood flow and muscle tone while encouraging elasticity and pliability. Kegels and other pelvic floor exercises can also increase intimate pleasure. And the best news? Regular clitoral stimulation keeps your vagina strong and responsive.
