The Best Ways To Clean Your Private Part After Sex

To stop the spread of bacteria and lower your risk of infection, it's crucial to clean your private areas after intimacy.

According to Medicalnewstoday, below are the best ways to clean your intimate areas following intimacy.

Use warm water.

Cleaning your intimate areas with warm water can help to prevent rubbing the skin's delicate surface.

Use mild soap.

Cleaning your intimate areas requires using a moderate, fragrance-free soap. As they can irritate, stay away from using scented soaps or bubble baths.

Wipe from front to back.

To avoid transferring bacteria from the anus to the urethra, always wipe from front to back after using the bathroom or cleaning your private areas.


Any bacteria that may have entered the urethra during intercourse can be flushed out by urinating after intimacy.

Don't douche.

Douching can alter the normal bacterial balance in the private organ and raise infection risk. Douching should be avoided at all costs.

Use a clean towel.

After cleaning, use a fresh towel to pat your privates dry. Avoid rubbing too hard because this can irritate the skin.

Don't forget to engage in safe intimate behaviour to lower your risk of STIs.
