For decades it has been thought that the clitoris was the only key to a woman's sexual satisfaction.
That meant men who wanted to satisfy their partners believed they must spend hours getting to know the little button-like organ, its location - and the kind of treatment which excited it.
But now research shows that not only can women climax through sexual intercourse alone, but the resulting orgasm is wildly different to those reached by clitoral stimulation. Read more

Intimacy heals the body, mind, and soul. If you are faking part of the connection, it hurts all three, says Mary Jo Rapini.
The first time I ever witnessed a good impression of a fake orgasm was a movie called, “When Harry met Sally.” Most of us saw it, and most of us remember our reaction. We may have blushed especially if we were a woman, because most women watching it have faked an orgasm. The interesting part to me was men didn’t seem alarmed. They really were convinced it was the real deal, didn’t really react to the exaggerated “YES” in the movie, and no doubt had been or were currently being faked by a lover of their own. I talk to men and women about their intimacy and sex every day. I have yet to hear a man ever say he faked an orgasm. Why? There are many reasons. For one thing, most women don’t care if he has an orgasm or not. It doesn’t say anything about his technique if he does or doesn’t. However, if his woman doesn’t orgasm, the man tells himself that he is doing something incorrectly.
If a woman doesn’t orgasm, it is a reflection on her lover (sometimes). I don’t think women necessarily blame their partner, but their partners often blame themselves. Read more

When we think about improving our health, diet and exercise usually come to mind. However, Willow Tohi says that relaxation and meditation are just as crucial.
You gotta relax, man. Life in 2012 means a degree of stress, for just about everyone. Our bodies and minds can take a lot of abuse, but its all too easy to get into a negative cycle, and just keep sinking. You don't sleep well, you get up late, so you don't eat, your blood sugar is low, so your temper is short, etc. Stress. If you need more time, more energy, or better sleep, then its worth taking the time to relax and meditate. Believe it or not, this investment in yourself can improve these aspects of your life, and many more.
Everyone knows stress is not good for you. Prolonged exposure to increased levels of cortisol and adrenaline is harmful to your organs. This condition is usually exacerbated by tense, tight muscles (causing pain), shallow breathing, and digestive problems. With just five minutes a few times a day, you can improve your health and cut stress. Best of all, it costs nothing and requires no equipment. Read more

Tantra teacher Carla Tara discusses how Tantra can help with sexual dysfunction in both men and women.
The most common sexual dysfunctions that men experience are: loss of desire, erectile dysfunctions, premature ejaculation and impotence. Some women experience: inhibited sexual desire, lack of orgasm, insufficient lubrification and painful intercourse.
According to the Journal of the American Medical Association, in 2005 more than 105 million Americans have reported struggling with chronic sexual dysfunctions and many of them were not aware that there is help available. Diabetes can be one of the causes of sexual dysfunctions.
Also some prescription medications for depression can have a negative effect on sexual desire.

You've probably heard the phrase "being in your body," but what does it really mean? Lissa Rankin explains:
For years, people have been accusing me of not being in my body (read about it here). I used to have no idea what that meant. I mean, of course I’m in my body, right? I have a body – and I’m alive. So by every medical and spiritual definition I could imagine, I’m in my body.
Yet, my mentors kept telling me I’m not – not just Tricia Barrett, my dear friend and spiritual counselor, but Debbie Rosas, the founder of Nia dance. When Debbie and I were talking awhile back, she said, “Lissa, I know you’ve done a lot of personal growth in the past few years, but I feel like embodiment is the missing piece.” And she invited me to come train with her at her Nia White Belt Intensive in Portland. Since Debbie is the most grounded, solid, rooted, sensual woman I know, I decided that I wanted some of what she was having – so I said yes. And WHOA, NELLY! Debbie was right. I haven’t been in my body.
