- SENSUAL SEX : Arousing your sense and deepening the passion in your relationship
DetailsLife is a sensual experience. Unfortunately, current culture tends to focus on sexual intercourse and disregard the pleasures of other kinds of physical contact. Its almost inevitable that once a relationship becomes sexual, the nonsexual touching that had previously been such an integral, pleasurable part of the relationship declines sharply. Through a series of innovative exercises, Sensual Sex helps readers reconnect with their senses and reawaken to the exquisite pleasures of their own bodies and their partners.Many books about sex focus on the physical techniques of lovemaking, over emphasizing performance and orgasm while ignoring the more profound feelings associated with intimate love. Instead of bringing lovers closer together by creating a mutual refuge from the demands of daily life, these books can carry the performance anxieties of the working world into the bedroom. Sensual Sex does what many of these popular couples books have promised but failed to deliver. It offers couples methods to reignite their passion, both by encouraging sexual fantasy, role-playing, or sexual experimentation, but by helping them establish real intimacy and trust.Sex therapist Bevery Engel takes readers through each of the five senses, encouraging them to experiment with different textures, sights, tastes, smells, and sounds. She shows them how to use common elements like water, oils, fabrics, and foods to learn more about the sensations they enjoy. She teaches techniques that help couples slow down and give up the notions of control and performance. She also provides tips for young, middle-aged, and older couples as well as advice for healing relationship wounds such as abuse or betrayal and making sex safe for survivors of rape and childhood sexual abuse.ABOUT THE AUTHOR : Beverly Engel is an internationally recognized psychotherapist and an acclaimed advocate for victims of sexual, physical, and emotional abuse.
