Quiz: How can you improve your sexual wellness?

TextDazed Beauty

Take our Killer And A Sweet Thang quiz with Eileen Kelly to find out your sexual wellness recommendation

Welcome to the Dazed Beauty Digital Spa, a space where you can come to escape the stresses of everyday life. From crystals to colour therapy, in this section, we'll be hosting a series of interactive quizzes designed to help you on your way to reaching ultimate wellness.

There’s ample research suggesting that our sex lives are intrinsically linked to our emotional and physical wellbeing. Not only is sex proven to boost your immune system, lower blood pressure and reduce the risk of prostate cancer, but it can improve your mood. Physical intimacy, whether with oneself or as part of a couple, can also trigger the release of chemicals in the brain including dopamine, oxytocin and endorphins, our body’s natural pain, stress and anxiety fighters, while after orgasm, the body releases prolactin which can lead to feelings of relaxation.

We are Killer And A Sweet Thang, an online resource for young people to connect with their sexual and emotional health. Publishing articles on pleasure, identity, and social media, we provide the inclusive, digitally-savvy Sex Ed we wish we’d had. Founded officially in 2016 by social media star Eileen Kelly, our origins actually began several years earlier, in Kelly’s childhood bedroom. Growing up in Seattle and attending Catholic school, the now 23-year-old would turn to the internet to fill in the blanks of her sexual knowledge. She would field questions on puberty and sex from fellow confused teens on her popular Tumblr page – Q&A format that would become the blueprint for KAAST.

Today, Killer And A Sweet Thang has evolved into a global platform, with over 100 young writers sharing their perspectives on love and sex with millions of readers around the world. In addition to the educational blog, Kelly is also a qualified sex educator, certified by the American Association of Sexuality Educators, Counselors and Therapists, able to speak at high schools and universities about sex education. Then there’s our interview series podcast which focuses on highlighting and celebrating the diversity of human sexuality. Every week, Kelly and her co-host pick the brains of experts ranging from surrogate partner therapist Dr Laurie Bennett-Cook to NYU professor and sex researcher Dr Zhana Vrangalova to professional dominatrix Lucy Sweetkill. At KAAST, we believe intimacy is deeply personal, and therefore, sexual wellness should be approached on an individual level.

Take the quiz below for some suggestions on how to improve your sex life — alone or with others.
