Touch Me: Touch Me Here

Get in touch with touching: the importance of sensual body exploration

By Vivienne Arkell

Women need caressing. Touching sensitizes our body, moving energy away from our mind and down the neck, breasts, and abdomen to lower parts. Expressed beautifully by Chia and Abrams in The Multi-Orgasmic Couple: Sexual Secrets Every Couple Should Know.

This slow movement of energy down her body is also why a woman tends to need more foreplay and time spent caressing and coaxing her energy away from distracting thoughts and emotions and into her genitals.”

Everyone in a rush these days? When we meet up or find time to get naked, often it’s just ‘go.’ Men are of course genitally focused and women are generally people pleasers.

Stroke your buttocks and thighs, feeling the weight and curves.

“Touch is important biochemically and energetically. The release of oxytocin that occurs when you touch each other will increase your affection and your bonding with each other”

Make the evening all about just being naked together with touch, fondling and purrs. Evenings and hours when only touch is allowed are…
