How to Make Your Bedroom Healthier and Sexier

So often we talk about removing things from our bedrooms to make them more serene, minimal, sleep-inducing. We are all for that. But there are items we can add to the bedroom that will enhance our experiences there—of intimacy and connection, of relaxation and sleep. The best bedroom is one that works hard for us so we can concentrate on putting mind, body, and spirit toward (some of) the best things in life: sleep and sex and health.

  1. 1

    Chews to Snooze

    It could be that simple. These chews are formulated with melatonin, L-tryptophan, and vitamin B6, three ingredients that work synergistically to help “knock us out” on the occasional sleepless night.

    Weighted Comfort

    It’s more than a beautiful, sustainable, hand-crocheted blanket. It’s a gentle embrace that, thanks to its heavy weight, envelops and soothes the body, promoting deep relaxation.

    Strand Strong

    Bedhead is totally sexy—when it’s deliberate. Waking up with tangled, frizzy hair is frustrating (and can means it’s been damaged). These ultrasoft silk pillowcases keep help keep hair smooth and knot-free, no matter how much activity goes on between the sheets.

    Star Muffler

    This tiny but mighty sound machine is capable of minimizing the most irritating noises, from bustling urban streets to rowdy neighbors. It can even help to drown out nagging thoughts. And it’s so easy to use: Hook it on a doorknob or bedpost, adjust the volume, and doze off.

    Wrap Artist

    A good robe can mentally transport you to another place. A chic hotel in the mountains. An airy house along the coast. And if it’s a really good robe—like this breezy, lightweight, silky-soft cotton number by Skin—a pied-à-terre in Paris.

    Nifty Lube

    It could be the difference between good sex and great sex. Clean and fragrance-free, this lube is water-based, so it’s safe to use with rubber latex, polyurethane, and polyisoprene condoms and toys. And the bottle is chic enough to keep (proudly) out on your nightstand.
