We’re talking all things sex. Self-pleasure. Health benefits. Sacred sex. Full-body orgasms.
Sex isn’t just friction, or getting off to reach orgasm and beyond. The beyond is looking at vulnerability, overcoming shame, and becoming present to create a safe space to have expanded orgasm and conscious connection in our love-making. And, why do women have so many fewer orgasms than men?
The health benefits of sex and orgasms are numerous: health and life-span, reboot your nervous system, PCOS, menstrual cramping, creates a theta brain-wave state, the same as mindfulness meditation + a flooding of neurotransmitters and hormones such as oxytocin. Plus, it’s natural, appropriate, and our birthright.
