Sex in Different Ways With Your Partner

Sensate focus is one of the techniques which help couples feel more comfortable with reducing their communication gap and improving their sensuality just by touching one another. These sessions help the couple to remove sexual inhabitations, so you can be completely stress-free.

This technique was developed by sex therapists, William Masters and Virginia Johnson Masters, in the 1960s. Sensate focus is completely focused on the power of touch. During these sessions, the couple touches and caresses each other, while focusing on their sensations. In these sessions, you and your partner are not allowed to have an orgasm or an erection. Genital and breast touching is also forbidden.

After the sessions, the couple is made to sit down and talk about their experiences. Usually, the exercises are performed by the couple in the comfort of their homes in their own ambiance. You can learn more about it in Helen Singer Kaplan’s book.
