Dr. Amy Fuller's insight:

This article explains how couples can sustain awesome sex over the long course of the relationships. Based on the concepts of Dr. David Schnarch, couples actually get closer by growing up and learning how to be an adult.

The Internal Clitoris

The Internal Clitoris | Sacred Sexuality | Scoop.it

Consider this: In over five million years of human evolution, only one organ has come to exist for the sole purpose of providing pleasure – the clitoris.  It is not required for reproduction.  It doesn’t have a urethra running through it like the penis, and thus, does not urinate.  Its sole function – its singular, wonderful purpose – is to make a woman feel good!!

Sadly, it is precisely because the clitoris has no function apart from female pleasure that science has neglected to study it as intricately as the penis...

    4 Thoughts on Overcoming Boredom in the Bedroom | Sacred Sexuality | Scoop.it

    If you’ve been married more than a couple of years, sex may sometimes seem a bit, well, boring.  It’s kind of embarrassing to admit that, isn’t it, because movies, television and magazines present sex as an endless series of passionate encounters and fabulous climaxes.  And really, if you’ve enjoyed passionate and fabulous sex at some point in the past, it’s hard to admit that your sex life has become a bit dull.

    Love is an irresistible desire to be irresistibly desired. ~Robert Frost If there ever was an area that needed to be more openly discussed among married couples, it’s this one: sex. It is easy to believe that every other couple has no difficulties with the subject. That if you and your spouse are having trouble when it comes to sex, you are the only ones. You couldn’t be further from the truth. Every couple will experience at least some difficulty in the area of sexual connection.

    Erotic Love Map Quiz - The Gottman Relationship Blog

    A surprisingly significant number of people in relationships aren't aware of their partner’s needs simply because they haven’t talked to them about it in the right way. It isn't that they aren't interested, but rather it's just that they don't know how to approach the conversation. The best way to open up to your partner about your lovemaking is to ask them targeted, specific questions.

    How to make things more sensual

    In Tuesday’s article, Top 5 Problems With Sex Today, I mentioned that people are getting too much information from the Internet, and not enough from their partner. Getting information from the Internet is, by its nature, impersonal. When we take information gathered impersonally into intimacy we depersonalize that as well. This leaves partners feeling disconnected and lonely in the very arena that’s meant to bond them and create closeness!
