Feng Shui and sex
How does Feng Shui influence sex? Well, just as Feng Shui is all about how the qi (or energy) flows, sex often is too. Letting the vibes flow between you and your partner is an important element in establishing a connection and ensuring your intimate moments go to the next level.
A healthy relationship needs regular check-ins and care. Of course, there are many ways to strengthen your bond, but feng shui can also offer a number of tips that can help to attract the energy of love. Curating Feng Shui can help shape positive energy and bring you (and your partner’s) qi into balance!
Feng shui literally translates to ‘wind’ and ‘water’. The importance of fluidity and flow in spaces is in the name! Each section of your home is known as a “gua” and it is through these that energy can flow – and more importantly – be channeled. By rearranging bigger pieces such as furniture or even smaller things like intimate toys, you can lay the groundwork for an open, energized home AND relationship.
Enhancing Feng Shui with sex toys
While Feng Shui is all about the flow of energy within you and the space you’re in, it’s also about the objects you surround yourself with. These can improve our internal energy and objects like sex toys are especially helpful. Adding more mindfulness to everyday intimacy through things like massage or focusing on energies can be the boost you were missing. Masturbation offers numerous health benefits and can even boost our sense of well-being.
According to expert Thierry Chow, products should be in primary colors and organic shapes. For example, toys like We-Vibe’s Touch X ticks both boxes. Chow also uses the bagua, or the “energy map” used by Feng Shui masters, to explain which “directions” or places in our homes are the best spots to place our intimate toys. With carefully placement, we can ensure the best energy exchange, love and intimacy.
Sara Tang, a Hong Kong-based sex therapist, has also vouched for the role of feng shui in general wellness as well as intimate health.
“Feng Shui can be a very important vehicle to transmit in Asia and beyond a very clear message from a sexual wellness perspective: self-pleasure is not only an acceptable form of wellness, but also very much part of our lives and we should speak as normally about it as we do about other things such as Feng Shui. This is really relevant in our fast-paced lives of the 21st century”.
Your Top Tips for Sexual Feng Shui
Tip #1: See Stars at Home
For anyone on the hunt for ways to boost the romantic energy in the north-east corners of your bedroom or intimate space, look no further. Try bold, solid colors for impact and strong energy markers.

The extra win is that it can be enjoyed solo or with a partner too!

If you want to mix things up, place it in your kitchen, which is home to the oven and traditionally the fire. Of course, that doesn’t mean it can’t travel to your bedroom too. In more intimate spaces, Tango X will carry that same positive energy and boost the passion in its space.
Use it in the northeast direction of your home, as Feng Shui says star no. 9 in 2021 represents romance. Using a toy with the color of passion there will boost romance this year!
Tip #3: Dive In Deep
While water often represents cool, calm vibes, when it comes to Feng Shui, it also represents wisdom, Perhaps the serene surface of a lake or pool is similar to the calm intelligence associated with experience and wisdom. It also highlights the emotional connection and flows between us, the people around us and the spaces we live in.
With that in mind, We-Vibe Chorus in Blue is a great way in which to integrate water energy into the home. This 100% waterproof is worn during sex so that both partners can enjoy rumbly feelings at the same time. The squeeze remote it arrives with is also designed to react to your energy, with the power of the toy adjusting according to the strength of your grip.
When it comes to ensuring your space has a better flow of energy, the fact that you are even paying attention to the layout of your home means that you will feel more comfortable and cared for in a curated space.
It is nice to feel at home in a space that isn’t chaotic, but instead has a sense of flow and order. Whether you’re using feng shui to boost your romantic life or just striving for a generally more balanced life, the fundamentals of feng shui will have you feeling less stressed and more energized through the simple act of caring about the space you’re in. And a happier you is almost a guarantee for a happier (more romantic) intimate life too!
