Now is the time to deepen your intimate connections in the bedroom!
- You breathe automatically on a daily basis but you may not have realized that breathing is a proven way to heighten sexual pleasure and arousal.
- When you and your partner synchronize your breathing, you start to harmonize your energies together. Often your physical bodies are in the same room, yet you feel worlds apart energetically. Aligning your breath with your partner’s for but a few minutes can induce a profound sense of harmonious union with each other.
- The breath of your love is the prevalence of the energy that sustains or depletes the life force between you. Taking time to consciously breathe is similar to meditation. Focus on your breath; do not speak, just breathe and feel amazingly close to the other.
- Plus, when you breathe deeper, you introduce more oxygen into the body, helping you reach greater heights of arousal. This mutual breathing is not only incredibly sexy but also very intimate. Try it out and watch how much your intimacy with your significant other increases.
- Taking these few breaths together will set the tone for your time and bring you into the present moment. To take it to the next level, breathe together during the sex act itself. Stay as close to synchronized breathing as possible, even as the arousal builds. This experience is not only profoundly erotic and intimate; it also releases the optimum levels of mood-boosting/bonding chemicals called oxytocin and serotonin.
Touching, Holding, Squeezing
- Touch is a vital part of human life yet so many go through life being deprived of touch without even knowing it. Massaging, stroking, and caressing all produce oxytocin, the crucial bonding chemical. Mutual touching throughout the day builds up a strong desire for each other.
- After an argument or confrontation, touching has been shown to lower heart rate and blood pressure, inducing a sense of ease and state of reconciliation. What an awesome way to bring you both back into a space of loving tenderness!
- While it seems clear to touch each other during sex, many couples don’t actively touch one another beyond the areas where their bodies meet. Make a conscious effort to stroke each other’s legs, arms, backs, chests, and faces while you’re being physically intimate.
- It’s also a fabulous idea to communicate your desires for touch in a supportive way, making clear, loving requests. To wit, let your partner know just how you like to be touched and where exactly you most enjoy it. Take brief breaks from coitus to also focus on just touching each other.
