Maintaining Proper Breast Health

27 Nov 2014, by Marla Stewart in Sex Arsenal Blog

Even though Breast Cancer Awareness Month has passed, you should always be aware of breast and chest health, whether you’re a woman or not.  There has been plenty of money that has raised to cure the cancer, but there hasn’t been a lot of information about the prevention of it.  The most popular prevention method has been to see I you have the gene or not and getting a mastectomy or two to relinquish you of the illness – a la Angelina Jolie-Pitt.

However, there are different ways that you can prevent breast cancer from happening to you.

#1 – Massage your breasts/chest.  Make it a point to massage or have a lover massage your breast about 3-4 days a week.  It doesn’t have to be an hour long, but massaging about 20 minutes can improve your breast health.

#2 – For women, make sure you have a proper fitting bra.  A lot of times, we don’t have bras that fit us right and underwire bras can cause damage to your breast tissue.  For other folks who have breasts/chest and don’t war bras, you need to make sure that your chest gets some breathing time fi you’re wearing a binder.  If binding or using another tightening product, try to limit your use to only 8 hours maximum.

#3 – Check for idiosyncrasies.  Be purposeful and check for any lumps, discolorations, skin differences or anything else that seems out of the ordinary.  If you have an idiosyncrasy, please go to your healthcare provider to ensure that everything is okay.

During this holiday season, I’m sure that you will celebrating in style, so do me a favor and make sure your breasts/chest are doing the best that they can do!

Cheers to your sexual success!
