When you ask most women who have had breast augmentation work done about their sex life, they’ll usually say, “The bigger they get, the better it gets.” In other words, it adds a boost not only to your bust but to what goes on in the bedroom as well. Before we get into the ways breast augmentation can help your sex life, let’s look at a common doctor’s warning.
Your plastic surgeon will tell you – Don’t have sex in the week or two following your surgery. Why not? Because sex is exercise, or at least it hopefully is. In other words, it’s rigorous activity and you’re not supposed to do any of that following surgery.
Your body will be out of whack and your breasts will need to heal, so refrain from doing the nasty until you’re feeling back to normal.
Another reason it’s good to avoid it is that the medications you’re taking for your recovery might interfere with your birth control pills. In addition to new breasts, you might have something else new in your life 9 months down the road! This is especially true with the antibiotics that are prescribed. It’s a good idea to use some other kind of protection or wait until you’re off the meds.
Now, let’s look at why breast augmentation helps your sex life. First of all, it’s a proven fact that you get more attention from men. Most women consider this a bonus but keep in mind that it’s more “attention” and not more “respect.” You’ll get quantity instead of quality. It’s a much noted fact that guys who will like you ONLY because of your large chest are usually the type who objectify women. If you’re alright with that, then more power to you. If they objectify you, objectify them back and have a good time with it!
There’s a much deeper reason why women enjoy sex more after getting breast augmentation done. Lots of women have trouble sexually because they’re not happy with their body image. They may not want to be naked in front of men, and it may be impossible for them to get intimate in anything but the darkest bedroom. When your new pair of breasts rounds everything out and gives you the body you’ve always dreamed of, you can get over your inhibitions and be totally comfortable with your sexuality.
After breast augmentation, you have an increased sense of self-esteem and this boosts your self-confidence. What does confidence have to do with sexuality? You can only enjoy anything intimate if you’ve got the self-confidence to enjoy it. If you have a feeling that you’re not good enough or that you don’t deserve it, this leads to sexual anxiety and a fear of intimacy. When you feel completely self-confident and at ease with your body, you can get over the barriers that keep you from being comfortable in close contact with another.
Finally, although it may sound outrageous, breast augmentation actually increases your sex drive. This is not due to chemical or hormonal changes in the body that turn you into a raging volcano of love. The sex drives of men and women work differently. While men’s libidos are at the mercy of chemical and hormonal changes, women’s libidos are directly affected by how they feel about themselves. Women are naturally more emotional, and this is why feelings have a much bigger impact on the libido than anything hormonal. When you feel better about yourself, you feel better about being in the bedroom.
This has been shown in surveys in women’s magazines and on breast augmentation websites. They’ve found a direct correlation between how women feel about themselves and their bodies, and their sex drives and ability to be intimate. Getting breast work done makes you feel better about your body and therefore yourself. This boost in self-esteem and self-confidence helps you to get over barriers and inhibitions. You’re less self-conscious and less hung-up, and this means that you can enjoy being with the one you love even more.
Surveys and studies have found that there’s one more reason why breast work boosts your sex life, and this has nothing to do with your feelings or emotional state. When you’ve got new breasts, you’re going to want to show them off with sexy lingerie that you wouldn’t have gotten away with before your augmentation. There have been lots of post-operative trips to Victoria’s Secret and other stores to stock up on lacy things to wrap those new breasts in! And the effect this has on your husband or boyfriend will likely cause a lot more action in the bedroom than you were having before.
There’s one last point to be made though. Not every woman who has had breast work done has reported a better sex life afterward. If you look at surveys or online forums, you’ll see some who said it didn’t really affect things that much. However, you won’t find any who said it damaged their sex lives. The point is that if you want to get breast augmentation surgery, do it for yourself. Do it because it will make you love your body and want to show it off. The boost to your sex life is just an added perk.
