Sex tips that every man should learn: how to pleasure your partner to orgasm

2/3/2023
Men who are aware of female sexual anatomy relax more around sex and enjoy their sexual pleasure more. Why? Because they don’t have to work so hard (no pun intended) to “give” their partner an orgasm. Research shows that even in relationships, 85% of men will orgasm during sex while only 65% of women will orgasm during sex. Only 4% of women experience orgasm from only penetration, and a lot of women don’t have their first orgasm until they try a vibrator. While the entertainment industry...

There are many, many challenges with pelvic pain that don’t happen if you sprain an ankle or have a shoulder injury that you can point to and talk about with your co-workers.

Your Pain Can Change: The science behind the brain body connection

8/15/2022
Pain is just neuroscience. Your brain is calculating information 24/7 to keep you safe and alive; when it calculates the threat of danger, pain becomes a protective measure. This information is biological (like recognizing a broken bone, torn ligament, or a cut), but there are other factors the brain is calculating to make a decision on whether or not you’re in danger and need pain to rescue you. Knowing the information that both produces and reduces pain levels allows your brain to start...

“Am I enough?” is a social and sexual anxiety we ruminate about. Yet, how did we get to this place of having abandoned our unconditional self-acceptance? Deepak put it beautifully when he said that: “we are at war with our own bodies and it’s desires.” Eroticism is part of breaking free from our binary thinking: of true/false ideas. Erotic intelligence, similar to emotional intelligence, is the awareness of and accepting of your emotions, what brings you physical pleasure, what brings...
