How To Flirt With A Girl: 101 Guide

How To Flirt With A Girl: 101 Guide

 

Learning how to flirt with a girl is not something you are born with, yet it is not that difficult to learn. Some people are more comfortable with flirting, while others need to make an effort in showing another person they like them. Regardless of your category, there is always something to learn and make your flirting game better.

With flirting, we’re always so focused on the result that we forget to enjoy the flirting process itself. Just ask yourself to remember your past flirting experiences, and you’ll see that the first memories popping up are about whether the person liked you or not. As much as we all flirt to show our interest in the other person and hopefully, get them interested to talk to us, we need to start thinking of flirting as an art. 

Undoubtedly, the oil painting you’re looking at in front of you is mesmerizing. Now imagine how much the artist enjoyed painting and creating this art piece, while not being aware of how it will turn out in the end. Luckily, learning how to flirt with a girl is much easier than learning how to paint art. 

To help you become confident in your flirting game, we’ve decided to share all our tips and tricks to help you get the girl you’ve been secretly thinking about recently.

Be Yourself

Before you start rolling your eyes because of how obvious this advice is, take a moment to think about it. Do you remember that time when you put on a shirt your parents bought you for formal occasions to impress a girl? Do you remember when you applied to play on the basketball team, thinking it makes you look cooler in front of the girls? 

We’ve all done it, yet being yourself is your best chance for success. There are probably dozens of your peers joining sports teams, so it will not make you stand out from the rest. Instead, think about the things you are passionate about and demonstrate them. Maybe you know a foreign language or two, you’re good at your favorite video game, or you enjoy reading comic books. These are all the things that can make you unique and interesting to a certain girl. And trust us, there is nothing that girls appreciate more than confidence in the person that is trying to flirt with them.

Ask Them Questions

Most young people will be focused on impressing their friends that they’ll forget to show interest in another person. Asking a girl questions about her life and things she finds important will show her you pay attention. For instance, you can ask her how she managed to ace that maths test that easily. This is not too personal, yet it still shows that you’ve remembered her grade for a certain reason. 

Also, you can ask general questions about what music they listen to, movies they watch, friends you have in common, etc. You can even share details about your life and ask them for an opinion. Let’s say you need to go to your friend’s birthday party and don’t have an idea what to buy them as a gift. Asking the girl you like for help will show her you want to hear her opinion and it might even lead to you two looking for the perfect gift in the nearest shopping mall.

Show Your Interest

 If you’re not sure if the girl you like likes you back, it is time to show your interest in her. You don’t have to say it directly to her, yet you can show her with a few gestures that you like her. For example, you can say that you liked the T-shirt she wore yesterday or say that she made a clever comment in the morning class when talking with the professor. 

You can compliment her hair, her smile, her intelligence, or how she makes you feel. All of these things will help her realize you like her and hopefully, she will start seeing you as more than just a friend. If you feel confident she likes you back or you want to be direct, you can do that as well. Share how she makes you feel and leave her enough time to come back to you with her answer. 

Invite Her To Do Something Together

If you’re always around other people and you wish to be alone with her, invite her to see a movie she wants to see, to a sports game in your city, a concert by a band or musician you both love, etc. Spending some time alone will help you reveal your flirting game, and also allow her to focus more on just you. 

If you’re clueless about the activity, think about something you both enjoy. It can be anything, from watching people walk by you to going for a jog together in the park. You can also ask her what she would like to do by suggesting a day and asking her to come up with the activity. If she spends time thinking about what to do with you, it means that she likes to be around you. 

Give Her a Unique Gift

Forget buying her something at a shopping mall and do something for her instead. Make a list of your favorite songs and share it with her. Give her your T-shirt that she likes and write a short, cute note on the inside. Help her with the subject she is struggling with by preparing notes that might help her learn quicker and more efficiently. If you give her something personal, she will understand you like her. 

Buying something might confuse her and make her feel obligated to treat you nice because you bought her something. Giving something that is yours or creating it on your own is a warm, friendly gesture that shows you’ve been thinking about her and wanted to let her know that.

Conclusion

Always be yourself. The right girl will appreciate it and you will feel better if someone falls in love with you because of you and not what you pretended to be. Just like she seems perfect the way she is, allow her to see you as you are.

Sex Techniques For Your First Time

Sex Techniques For Your First Time

 

So learning a few sex techniques for your first time before it occurs might help you to enjoy the moment and connect with your sexual partner. You will probably feel a bit of fear, and that’s completely okay. We all feel a certain amount of fear when faced with experiencing something unknown to us. Instead of focusing on fear, you will need to build your knowledge and confidence with valuable sex techniques.

Don’t worry, nobody expects you to be perfect. All you have to do is make sure you have all you need to feel good and comfortable before, during, and after intercourse. Many people without sexual experience will have too many thoughts running through their minds, so we’ve decided to calm your mind down and help you feel more confident about your first time with our best sex techniques. 

What Happens In My Body During Sex?

Before we unravel a list of techniques that will make your first time a pleasant experience, let’s look at what happens in one’s body when they are having sex so you can know what to expect. One thing that’s important to know is that nobody, not even your family or friends, will be able to tell you had sex unless you tell them. 

There are no visible signs that others can see that will make them know you had your first sexual experience. During sex, on the other hand, you will experience a lot of sensations, and many of them for the first time in your life. You might start breathing heavily, sweat a lot, or your skin could become flushed. That might happen to every individual, regardless of their gender, yet it’s more common for people with a vagina as the vulva become swollen during sex due to higher blood flow. Once the intercourse has finished, the body will go back to normal, similar it does when you are exercising.

Another thing that individuals with a vagina need to be aware of is the possibility of bleeding. That occurs because of the hymen stretching, yet it’s completely normal, and you shouldn’t get scared. For individuals with a penis, before the intercourse itself, they will feel an erection once they start feeling sexually excited. Once the sexual activity is completed, they might or might not orgasm and ejaculate.

Sex Techniques

Now that you know what to expect in your first sexual experience, let’s look at the sex techniques that will help you enjoy the sex and feel comfortable with your sex partner, regardless of your gender.

#1 Get To Know Your Partner

Getting to know your sexual partner before sex will increase the chances of feeling pleasure and orgasm at the end. Not to mention that having someone you know and trust helps in unknown situations like this one. Being able to talk and share your feelings and concerns will help you connect. This will also allow you both to feel less pressure of doing everything perfectly, and stopping the sexual activity if you need to. 

#2 Find a Cozy Place

You might have seen a lot of movie scenes where couples have sex in their car, yet this is not the right place for your first time. The reason for it is that it’s incredibly uncomfortable, so you will not be able to relax at all. Also, doing it in a car means you will probably be in a parking lot and someone can see you, which is not a memory you want for your first time. Instead, find a cozy place like your room, your partner’s room, or any other place that will give you the space and time you need to dedicate yourself to each other. 

#3 Don’t Skip Foreplay

Skipping foreplay is not something you’d like to do for your first sexual experience. Although you might be nervous and think it’s best to start sooner than later, foreplay smooths the transition into the sex and allows you and your sex partner to explore each other’s bodies and heat things up. Start taking your partner’s clothes off, kiss their lips and neck, touch them, put their hands on your body, etc. Don’t overthink it and just go with the flow. 

#4 Penetration Should Be Slow

Whether you’re using a penis or a sex toy during intercourse, if there’s penetration involved, it should be slow. After all, whether you’re a giver or a receiver, it will be a completely new sensation for you, and accelerating things might bring physical pain or discomfort. Instead, take time when the penetration is happening. Help yourself with saliva or a lubricant as it will make the penetration less uncomfortable and allow you and your partner to enjoy sex without anything bothering or limiting you. 

#5 Protect Yourself And Your Partner

Your first time will involve you and another person. Being aware of sexual health is incredibly important as it can affect your partner, not just yourself. You will need to be informed about sexually transmitted infections (STIs) and the possibility of pregnancy. To protect yourself from it, you will need to use protection and contraception. When talking about these two terms, keep in mind that a contraceptive pill or similar methods of contraception only protect you from unwanted pregnancy, and not from STIs. The only way to ensure you or your partner doesn’t get an STI will be with a condom.

In Conclusion

It’s quite important to prepare for your first sexual experience. This includes talking to your partner and becoming intimate before the intercourse, learning about what reactions our bodies have when we’re having sex, different sex styles, and positions, and most importantly, always being aware of protection. It might seem overwhelming to you at first, yet it will take some time until you feel completely comfortable. 

That’s why it’s important not to put too much pressure on yourself and talk openly to your sex partner about your thoughts and concerns. Don’t expect it to be like in movies as all these scenes are staged and played by professional actors. A real-life experience isn’t perfect and that is what makes it so valuable!

Sex Toys For Pleasure: Overview & Tips On How To Use Them 

Sex Toys For Pleasure: Overview & Tips On How To Use Them 

 

In the last decade, sex toys for pleasure have created a market on their own. By offering pleasure to men and women, sex toys have evolved tremendously and broken through all the stereotypes people used to have about this type of product.

After all, we’ve only recently started discussing more openly our sex lives, sexuality, and things we like and dislike in the bedroom. Sex and pleasure are becoming one of the common topics in conversations with friends, and also in educational institutions.

All of this has led to more people being interested in and buying sex toys for pleasure. From steam-powered vibrators and rubber dildos, there is a wide range of sex toys available to everyone looking to get some pleasure.

Before getting overwhelmed with so many options on the sex toy market, we’ve done our homework and decided to recommend you a few products you should try out. Let the moaning begin!

Sex Toys for Women

There are so many sex toys available to women that the only problem will be to limit yourself to trying out only a few toys and not spending all of your money. Dive into the most purchased sex toys for women:

1. Magic Wand Rechargeable

With a fervent fanbase, Magic Wand is still amazing women as it did when it was launched first. Many women recommend it because of its amazing vibrations and simplicity. That said, those who wish to switch gears or have a more flexible toy will need to be aware of the limitations of our beloved Magic Wand. Yet, don’t discard it so quickly, this is one of the most used sex toys in porn – that has to mean something!

2. Njoy Pure Plug 

For those of you who enjoy good anal sex, you will need to try this luxe metal plug. Its surface is almost blissfully smooth and more importantly, it’s compatible with all lubricants out there, so it guarantees you’ll get the pleasure you’re seeking. The weight of Njoy Pure Plug is also big enough to be aware of ii, yet small enough to not be uncomfortable for the woman. The great thing about it is that it comes in small, medium, and large versions, so anyone can have fun with it. 

3. Vixen Creations Mustang

You’ve never liked sex toys as they don’t seem like a real deal? Well, you’ll surely change your mind once you hear about Vixen Creations Mustang, the most realistic dildo in the world. This dildo has great dual-density material and its gentle curve will stimulate your G-spot like nothing you’ve ever tried before. This toy works well for men as well!

4. Lovense Lush 3

Are you in a long-distance committed relationship and want to spice things up with your partner? Or, are you a webcam performer who loves connecting with your audience? This long-distance Blootooth vibrator allows others who are not in bed with you to titillate you from afar by using the toy’s app. What we love about this sex toy is its rumbly motor incredibly fast responsiveness! 

Sex Toys for Men

If we had to write this article a few years ago, it wouldn’t be so easy to find great sex toys that will provide incredible pleasure to men as well. Luckily, there are many options for men to choose from when it comes to orgasming whether it’s on their own or with their sexual partner.

1. Fleshlight Quickshot

From men to men, Fleshlight Quickshot has been praised as the best male masturbator several times already. Besides being the best male sex toy, this was also the first-ever masturbator. 

The pioneer in male pleasure, Fleshlight Quickshot is smaller than its original version as it has 3.5 inches to insert the penis. Another plus is that you will not have to hide it around your room from someone who might stumble upon it because it doesn’t look like your regular sex toy. 

2. Uberlube

Okay, we know that lubes are not exactly sex toys, yet nobody can deny how much pleasure they bring during masturbation and intercourse. Uberlube is silicone-based so it will last quite long, and you will not be able to keep your hands off from the slippery surface, regardless of whether you’re touching yourself or your partner. We also love it because of its beautiful packaging, yet keep in mind you cannot combine it with silicone toys.  

  • Lelo HUGO

Although its price is a bit above the average of other male sex toys, LELO Hugo will justify its price the first time you use it. This is a favorite prostate massager for many sex toy users due to its remote that controls both strength and location of the vibrations. 

For instance, if you tilt it to the right, the vibrations will be stronger on the left side. More importantly, you will be able to focus on the area where you feel the most pleasure and make the most of it with Hugo.

3. Tenga Egg

The Tenga Egg is an excellent sex toy for those who are unwilling to invest a lot of money in it. Tenga Egg is very affordable with its price below ten dollars. Its price is what makes this super-stretchable elastomer sleeve one of the commonly used sex toys and a great idea when you want to step away from the old-fashioned ways. 

Of course, you shouldn’t expect too much for a few-dollar toy. It will not revolutionize your sex life or be your go-to toy for each masturbation, yet it is good to have if you’re not looking for expensive sex toys. It’s also a recommended option for beginners as they will not spend a lot of money on something they are still not certain if it works or not.

Press Play

Whether you are looking for sex toys for yourself or enjoy them with your sexual partner, these products can truly make a difference in how you experience your sexual pleasure. Whichever you choose, make sure you make the most of it and try it in different scenarios and positions. The only decision you might regret is buying a sex toy and not pleasuring yourself with it enough!

Sex Therapy as an Individual

What to Expect In Sex Therapy as an Individual

What to Expect In Sex Therapy as an Individual

 

We often wrongly assume that sex therapy is reserved for couples who wish to improve their sexual life; however, getting sex therapy as an individual has incredible benefits and will help to achieve a certain goal in their sexual lives. 

Regardless of what their goal might be, a person that wishes to resolve or improve a certain aspect of their romantic or sexual life will seek help in a form of sex therapy as an individual.

The first step will be to reach out to a sex therapist of their choice. Depending on the preferences, a person’s choice can be made based on the financial budget, insurance coverage, therapist’s location, recommendations, or personal connection. Whatever your reason for contacting a sex therapis. You have decided to start a journey of healing, exploring, and growing as an individual which leads to a stronger awareness of your personal needs and emotions. And also deeper relationships with other people in your life.

Below, you will find all the steps of sex therapy that you will have to go through to achieve the objective you have set for yourself. Without a doubt, it is a process that requires time, honesty, and patience, yet the final results will have immense value to you.

#1 Filling Out The Intake

Once you have found the therapist you would like to work with, you will need to fill out an intake, which is also considered the first session of your sex therapy. Sometimes, filling out your intake might take more than one session. However, because the insurance coverage covers only one session for the intake, most individuals will decide to do it in one session.

During the first session, you will be able to decide whether the therapeutic bond is beneficial for you or not. Pay attention to how you feel when talking to your therapist and how they listen. And respond to your questions or concerns. This will give you a pretty good idea of what you can expect if you continue working with this therapist. That said, if you feel a bit uncomfortable, that’s completely fine as you are sharing intimate details about yourself with someone you’re seeing for the very first time. 

In the intake, the therapist is seeking to get your sex history, origin details, and information on where you’ve lived and anything else that might affect your knowledge or perspective on sex, intimacy, and relationships. The intake is incredibly valuable for your therapist as they can get an idea of how to help you. And start working on a strategy that will help you achieve your goal.

#2 Setting a Clear Goal

Your goal will be related to the reason why you’ve decided to go into sex therapy. For instance, you’ve looking to start dating after a long relationship or going through a divorce and need help to feel good about your sexuality. Setting a clear goal will help your therapist understand where you want to go with your therapy

Your goal should be in your intake. That way, your therapist will know in which direction to take the sessions to make sure you’re both working towards the same goal. Also, your therapist will be the one to tell you what does it takes to obtain your objective. The most important is your willingness and openness to things you don’t know. 

When discussing your goal with the therapist, ask them questions about how to achieve it. Seek tactics that can get you closer to what you want. After all, the reason you’ve decided to talk to a sex therapist is that you wanted to learn valuable techniques that will help you in your life. After each session, ask them for homework. Your therapist might decide to share an article, a book, watch a movie, do a little experiment. Or something completely else. 

#3 Listening & Reflective Support

Besides providing you with information and useful tools, sex therapists are also great listeners and support systems. Once in therapy, you will be able to say whatever you’re thinking or feeling. This space is incredibly valuable for those individuals seeking reflective support. The more information you share with your therapist, the better. Don’t feel discouraged or ashamed to share your beliefs, fears, desires, or skills because most of us have limited knowledge about sexuality and sexual pleasure. 

We’ve learned everything we know from media, our parents or caretakers, our friends, schools. And other educational institutions, and often, that knowledge is not most accurate or beneficial for us. That’s why a big part of therapy is unlearning what we know and learning again how to get your needs met and what do they when they aren’t. 

#4 Learning Process

After you have shared all relevant information about your sexuality and perspective on sex. Your therapist will start providing you with information. Even if you haven’t asked for it, a therapist will start the learning process during sessions and outside of them. They will use various sources to teach you tools and ways that will get you closer to your goal. For instance, a client that feels uncomfortable when naked might be recommended to read a book on accepting and loving their body. 

Once the therapist has a clear idea of your objective and obstacles preventing you to achieve it. They will start with specific suggestions. That means that two clients with the same goal might be suggested different homework due to their different-sex history or childhood background. A person that is going through a divorce will also receive a different type of sex therapy than someone who is looking to start dating after years of being out of a relationship.

#5 Intensive Type of Therapy

Most of the time, the learning process mentioned above will be enough to get you to achieve the goal from the beginning of your sex therapy. However, in cases where the goals still haven’t been met, a therapist might suggest an intensive type of therapy. These therapy types might be eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR). Trauma-focused cognitive behavioral therapy (TF-CBT), or dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT).

Each of these intensive therapy types will get you to the core of what is preventing you from achieving your goal. By applying this type of therapy, your therapist will guide you to dive deeper into the areas affecting how you feel and think about your sexuality and sexual pleasure. Once you’ve gotten to the core of the issue, it will be a lot easier to understand what it takes for you to reach the set objective. And enjoy your sexuality without any obstacles around you.

Sex Education You Never Got

Sex Education You Never Got

 

Whether you’re in a relationship or solo, adolescent, or in your 20s or 30s, sex education is a never-ending process. Often, we’ll wrongly assume that just because someone has passed their adolescent year, they know everything there is about sex, dating, and relationship, yet this is not the case. 

This area is so wide that it would probably take us an entire lifetime to learn everything there is about sex. Dr. Sara and I did a presentation on this before the pandemic and I would love to share here! 

Learning about sex shouldn’t begin after your first sexual experience, yet as this topic was until recently considered taboo, things are slowly starting to change. Young people are educating themselves through conversations with their family members and friends, through schools, media, etc. By understanding sexual education doesn’t involve only sex, you will better manage situations you find yourself in, from dating to being in serious, long-term relationships. 

Dating as an Opportunity

Things are not just fast-forwarded to sex. To get to know each other better, people will typically start dating before they decide to move to a more physical phase that involves touching, kissing, and having sex. If dating is a stressful experience for you, consider applying an opportunistic or zen philosophy in dating. In other words, you will have to be willing and open to confront anything that’s causing any unpleasant emotions within yourself. 

Instead of allowing these emotions to take control over you while you’re trying to ignore them, take a look at them to understand them better. What makes you feel like this? Is it a certain situation or expectation that is causing discomfort in you? Have you had this feeling before? Start exploring it instead of ignoring it and you will soon notice how your attitude towards dating is changing. So, before jumping into exploring sex, make sure you feel good about dating new people. 

The Science Of Sex

How you feel about sex is one thing, yet knowing the technical details of sexual pleasure is crucial to enjoying sex and having orgasms. Understanding the difference between the internal and external clitoris, the labia majora and minora, uretha and vagina hole are just some of the terms you’ll need to learn to understand better the female body, and see what works for you and what doesn’t. 

There are many different paths to a female orgasm, which doesn’t necessarily include only sex organs. By touching and kissing a person’s nipples, they can experience a wave of sexual excitement which followed by, for instance, touching the G-Spot can lead to an incredible orgasm. As every person is different, their likes and dislikes in sex will differ as well.

Physiology Behind The Orgasm

If you’ve ever orgasmed before, you know that this feeling is undeniably good, however, to learn how to have frequent orgasms you’ll continue enjoying, it’s necessary to know at least some basics around the big O. Having an orgasm is feeling your vagina, uterus, anus, and sometimes even other body parts contracting rapidly from 3 to 15 times, squeezing for a little less that one second at a time. 

The female orgasm can also include ejaculation, the release of a liquid out of the urethra. As every sex experience is different for each person, orgasms might feel different as well. That’s why it’s vital to learn what feels good and what doesn’t for you. Understanding what excites you and sharing it with your sex partner to experience the four phases of orgasm: 

  1. Excitement: Initially being turned on.
  2. Plateau: Repetitive motion that feels pleasurable.
  3. Orgasm: The burst of pleasure and release.
  4. Resolution: The refractory period. 

Although these phases are accurate, they don’t need to occur every time. Also, for some women, sexual pleasure doesn’t always lead to orgasm. On the other hand, having an orgasm at the end of the sexual experience doesn’t imply that the sex was amazing. As said, it’s quite individual, so your learning about sex might be different from how your friend is learning about their body and sexual pleasure. 

Types of Sex

There are hundreds and hundreds of sex positions you can try out with your sex partner. However, if you’re looking for more general categories of sex, you can start learning about different types of sex. You can choose between clitoral, vaginal, cervical, and anal sex. 

With all four types of sex, a woman can experience orgasm. Depending on what you prefer, you can combine a few sex types in one experience or stick to the one that makes you feel completely excited. If you lack experience and would like to see how you like each of these types of sex, you can easily try it on your own. Use a sex toy like a vibrator or your fingers instead of a penis. For instance, with clitoral sex, you can insert your fingers or the toy into your vagina and move them in a “come hither” motion in the direction of your belly button. 

Taking Care Of Your Health

Taking care of your sexual health goes beyond just having protected sex. As much as using condoms protect you from unwanted pregnancy and sexually transmitted infections (STIs). You will need to be careful which soap you use, underwear you wear, the food you eat, etc. Taking care of yourself is essential for a fulfilled and satisfied sexual life. 

If you’re keen on practicing anal sex, make sure you shorten your nails, take off any jewelry such as rings or bracelets, and use lubricant for easier penetration. Be responsible and discuss all these aspects with your sex partner as they might prefer something different from what you had in mind. Having an open conversation is the first step leading towards great sex as it helps partners exchange ideas and get to know each other better before engaging in any sexual activity.

Everything You Wanted To Know About Sexology

Everything You Wanted To Know About Sexology

 

Many people wrongly assume that sexology is a scandalous profession, yet the term stands for the scientific study of human sexuality and sexual behavior. People who are studying sexology are sexologists, and they differ significantly from sex therapists. Many sexologists might decide to pursue their career as sex therapists to work with their patients in a clinical setting. Others might explore other careers such as sex educator, sex researcher, or public policy activist.

The work of a sexologist is not very different from other researchers of human behavior or therapists. They study and communicate with people who might experience low sexual desire, feeling of disconnection, or inabilities to have an orgasm. Their profession doesn’t imply they love sex more than any other person. It just means they enjoy studying it, helping people, and contributing to their field of science. 

As there is still a lot of misconceptions about sexology, we’ve decided to bring some clarity to this topic and find out what a sexologist does in their job. 

Becoming a Sexologist

A person can become a sexologist in more than one way. With many universities offering degrees in sexology or human sexuality, students have more options to decide what will be the starting point of their career as a sexologist. Also, someone can become a sexologist if they have an educational background in sociology, psychology, biology, anthropology, or public health. 

Typically, a sexologist will have a master’s or doctoral degree, yet it doesn’t necessarily have to be in sexology or human sexuality. There are also many training and certification programs for becoming a sexologist, and they are a personal choice rather than a field requirement. 

Using Sexology Knowledge

As already said, a sexologist doesn’t necessarily have to become a sex therapist and work with patients in a clinical setting. Besides being a sex therapist, sex educator, sex researcher, or public policy activist, there are many ways to practice sexology. For instance, a sexologist can organize workshops about sex health, educate teenagers about sex, or participate in sex-related initiatives in their community. 

Those who have decided to pursue their career as sex therapists will work directly with clients, with individuals or couples, to address problems they have in their sex lives and find solutions for these problems. The variety of such problems goes from mismatches libidos to sexless relationships. As most states don’t require certification to practice sex therapy, it’s crucial to check the previous experience of the sex therapist before starting therapy with them.

A well-recommended or experienced sex therapist will detect problems easier than someone without these two factors and will help the patient more efficiently. As much as it’s true that good sex therapists without certifications exist, this helps patients be at peace when undoing sex therapy and sharing their intimate details with someone who is a stranger to them. 

Sex Therapists vs Sexologists

Both professions study human sexuality and sexual behavior, yet in different ways. Often, sexologists will study patients and do their research from afar, whereas sex therapists will work directly with their patients. During sessions, sex therapists will not have any physical contact with their patients. As many people think that clinical sexologists do hands-on work, it’s quite important to know that all work is being done through the conversation between the therapist and the patient. 

Also, there is no nudity or any demonstration of sexual activity involved during sex therapy sessions. Future patients must understand that these sessions are just like regular therapy sessions with more focus on conversations related to sex. If there is a need to explain something graphic, a sex therapist or a patient will show it in on a puppet, diagram, or in a book. 

After several sessions, when the patient has more trust in their therapist, they might be given more practical tasks to take them home. This is often the case with couples or if a person is struggling to achieve an orgasm. Where a therapist might suggest exploring and doing research when at home alone or with a partner. 

Benefits of Sexology

Whether it’s sexologists or sex therapists, they both have incredible value in how we feel about sex, what we know about it, and how we behave in actions related to sex in any way. The more these topics are discussed. People will have more healthy sex lives that improve how they see themselves. And also how they connect with their partners.

All of the achievements that were made in the field of sexology, regardless of the branch, have had a positive impact on society as a whole and us as individuals. Due to sexology, we today know that having sex without protection can lead to a range of sexually transmitted infections. We’ve also learned there is nothing wrong with masturbation. Most achievements in sexology were focused on unlearning what we’ve been taught about sex to finally enjoy that aspect of our lives. After all, we’re sexual beings and we deserve to feel excited in more ways than just one!

In Final Words

Whether you’re currently seeking a sex therapist or considering pursuing a career as a sexologist. Hopefully, this article motivated you to do your share. As much as the sexual revolution helped us realize how significant sex health, sex education. And sex activities are in one’s life, there is still much more to learn and unlearn. We need to look at it as sexual evolution. 

As human beings, we’re constantly evolving and learning new things about ourselves and everything around us. There is no reason for it to be different with human sexuality and sexual behaviors. Whether it’s an open conversation with a friend, scheduling your first sex therapy session. Or enrolling in an undergraduate sexology program, each of these steps will contribute to a healthier and happier society that doesn’t ignore its sexuality. Instead, it celebrates it and seeks more ways to enjoy it!

tantric sexology near me

Tantric Sexology Near Me: Learn All About It

Tantric Sexology Near Me: Learn All About It

 

If you’re interested in connecting sexually with your partner, you might look online for terms such as ‘tantric sexology near me’ or ‘best tantric sex’ to understand better what it’s all about. With tantric sex, you are able to dive deeper into a sexual connection that provides you with access to more profound levels of feelings, sensations, and energy, and most importantly, a better understanding of who you are.

 

In tantra, we celebrate the sacredness of our bodies and sexual desires, while at the same time, we’re buying mindfully aware of the shared pleasure. Learning tantric sexology can help in releasing shame, trauma, and any obstacles you might have around sex by unleashing the very transformative power of erotic energy and the most incredible orgasms you’ve ever had. 

Tantric Sex

This sexual practice is one aspect of the ancient spiritual philosophy known as tantra. Its purpose is to reveal an ecstatic union with life that goes beyond our sense of self. Tantric sex is often looked at as one doorway to transcendent experience which once learned, can never be forgotten. Tantric intimacy is something that awakens the fire in your sexual energy, passion, creativity, and personal desires aligned with your heart and spirit. 

 

With tantric sex, your lovemaking will feel healing, empowering, transcendent, and beyond. You will also feel connected to your partner, and you will notice how your relationship is blossoming, along with your sexual life. During lovemaking, you both will feel as if the time is slowing down and your intuition is expanding as you’re both diving into almost psychedelic realms of the erotic world. 

During Tantric Sex

Once your start exploring tantric sex, you will notice it actually involves a variety of erotic activities. Some of them will not involve penetration or any physical stimulation that we typically connect with sex, yet it will provide you with such pleasure that you will want to repeat it as soon as possible. 

 

A typical tantra encounter will involve many subtle sexual realms, from gentle caresses to being focused on the way that energy flows between two bodies. At times, you will even barely move, as you will be focused on the meditative aspect of the tantra, and this stillness combined with your partner’s energy will lead you to precious romantic and erotic moments. Once you start practicing tantric sex, try to be as relaxed as you can be and truly take things slowly. Play with the rhythm of your sexual games, speed it up and then slow it down to really make the most of this erotic energy that’s exchanged between you two.  

 

Sexual Energy vs Tantric Energy

The difference between regular sex and tantric one is in its awareness. Tantric sex is so much than sex and it emphasizes so much more than bodies. You will be more aware of your and your partner’s breath, how you both move, how it feels when you touch each other. And how you’re both filling up the room with your combined erotic energy. Not to say that tantric sex cannot be raw and intense. Yet it’s always aiming to connect two souls through intercourse instead of just aiming for pleasure. 

 

As we mentioned awareness quite a few times, it’s evident that breathwork is crucial for tantric sex. You will use your breath and awareness, and learn to move your sexual energy through your entire body. This will also help you feel the sexual pleasure throughout the body as you give into the cosmic play with your sexual partner. 

Neotantra Or Classical Tantra?

The earliest evidence of someone mentioning tantra dates back to the seventh century. In Hindu books, many texts were written about it. However, there is a bit of difference in how the eastern world and western world define it. Typically, when people from western countries use the word ‘tantra’, they are actually referring to ‘neotantra’.

 

When talking about classical tantra, there are numerous complex and quite rigorous spiritual paths that aim to achieve enlightenment. Often, these paths will involve serious study and dedication, many meditative practices, etc. Focusing on sexual energy is only a small part of it and usually is reserved for advanced practitioners only. 

 

On the other hand, neotantra has been developing over the past two centuries and its goal is to enhance intimacy and connection in people. A more profound connection to our bodies and emotions, while also opening ourselves to orgasmic ecstasy. What you will usually find in the media is a set of practices from modern tantric sex practitioners. These practices are not a part of ancient wisdom, however, their relevance and meaning are unquestionable. 

Tantric Sex Benefits

We already mentioned many benefits from having tantric sex with your partner. Yet there are so many of them that it doesn’t hurt to mention a few more. As you continue practicing tantric sex, you will notice how you’re receiving more of what you want in sex. While also releasing sexual blocks and shame you have from before. Indeed, tantric sex is therapeutic as it helps you even heal from sexual trauma and rediscover intimacy with your partner.

 

Also, you will notice how your sexual energy is slowly increasing as you’re allowing it to flow freely throughout your body. Overall, you can expect to experience an entirely new level of heart connection, a deeper sense of intimacy. And purer love for each other. There are plenty of ways you can start exploring tantric sex. You can start reading about it on your own, and once you feel confident, share it with your partner.

 

Or, you can start discovering the world of tantric sex together. Find what you wish to try out first, and start with smaller steps. Sit opposite to one another and focus on your breath. Look into each other eyes and pay attention to what happens in your body. This can be a great introduction for those who are choosing to have tantric sex for the first time as it’s gradually preparing you both for a very unique erotic experience.

How To Have Sex Like A Porn Star

How To Have Sex Like A Porn Star

How To Have Sex Like A Porn Star

 

Curious to learn how to have sex like a porn star? Believe it or not, many will be looking into tips and tricks from their favorite porn movies or porn stars to spice things up in the bedroom. And let’s face it, life is truly too short not to enjoy good sex whenever and wherever you want it. 

If you’re looking to turn your wildest, craziest fantasies into reality, this probably means you’re ready to dive into the world of porn stars for inspiration. To help you make the most of your sex life and have fun with your sex partner. Take a look at our suggestions on how to become a porn star in your own life!

#1 Press Record

The difference between porn stars and everyone else is they are recording themselves having sex. Well, you might not have a production team in your bedroom and all that fancy equipment, yet it’s possible to record your wildest moments and keep them as great memories. If you haven’t recorded yourself having sex before, you might feel a bit uncomfortable the first time.

Regardless, make sure you enjoy it and don’t be shy to be yourself just because your camera is on. Forget completely that these moments are being recorded and connect with your sexual partner as you have connected during the previous times. 

#2 Dress Up

When was the last time you spent money on nice lingerie or underwear? Men or women, we all like to put a nice piece of clothing to flirt with our partner and use it as an invitation for sex. Order online or make an event out of it and go shopping alone, with friends, or even with your sexual partner. 

If you want to level it up, you can even buy a costume for a role play. For instance, your partner might have shared their fantasies about the doctor-nurse scenario, so why not buy a uniform and surprise them when they come from work? Whatever your choice is, make sure that it’s used to enhance your foreplay and sex.

#3 Own The Dirty Talk

If you’ve ever seen a porn movie (we know you have!), you’ve probably noticed all the dirty. Playful words porn stars are using. Sex is not just about physical, you can enjoy it from so many other angles, and one of them is verbal. Share with your partner how bad you want it with your dirty talk and encourage them to talk dirty to you too!

However, before going into all of that, make sure you have communicated it with your partner, so they don’t get surprised or offended once you start throwing a few dirty words around. The best thing to do is to start small and see where you both feel comfortable with dirty talk. 

#4 Open Your Sex Life

If you’re not a complete monogamist or you’d like to explore non-monogamy concepts, how about inviting another person to your bed? If you’re in a long-term, serious relationship, start a conversation with your partner and ask for their opinion on it. Of course, you will do the same if it’s with a person who is your sex partner, only there is more risk with relationships.

You might decide to have a threesome or group sex, and the most important thing about it is to practice safe sex. Including more people in your sexual life requires more attention and preparation, both physically and emotionally. If you discover that having sex with more people at the same time is something that excites you. You can start practicing it more and discover something new about your pleasure with each experience.

#5 Try BDSM

When talking about porn movies, BDSM is one of the most popular categories people enjoy watching. So, if you’re curious to try it out, why not suggest to your partner a night of hot BDSM passion? However, as pleasure is intertwined with pain in the BDSM world. You will need to talk about the limitations and what things are off the table. Most couples will determine a safe word they will use once they want to end the foreplay or the sex.

Also, you will notice that BDSM consists of a wide range of different techniques. So make sure you go into it step by step. Another thing that would be quite useful to know before you start exploring the BDSM world is to think about the aftercare element. As things can get rough, it’s nice to know that you and your partner can go back to hugging, kissing, cuddling. And deep conversation after you’ve had the orgasms of your lives. 

#6 Watch Porn

If you’re determined to start having wild sex with your partner, you will need a source of inspiration. After all, our tricks can only do so much, right? So, why not dive into an endless library of porn movies you can filter by your own interests? Instead of having a movie night on Friday. Why not have a porn movie night with your partner and discover new things you’d like to try in the bedroom?

Browse through different categories, read what other users are recommending. And you can even join forums and chats where you can also inspire other people with your sex ideas. Such places are great to inspire you and also to connect you with a like-minded group of people. Those who are looking for an extra in their sexual relationship might even find them there.

In Conclusion

To do it like a porn star, you will need to be ready to look deep into your fantasies. Share them with your partner. And start practicing them in the bedroom. If you’re not used to wild, free sex without limitations, it will take a while for you to get used to it. And don’t worry if some of the things you try out don’t work. There is plenty of ideas waiting for you to turn them into reality!

Tantric Sex Positions

Tantric Sex Positions That Will Blow Your Mind

Tantric Sex Positions That Will Blow Your Mind

 

If you and your partner have been researching the best tantric sex positions to improve your sexual life, that means you are looking for something more than just sex – you’re looking for a connection. Even if you haven’t been looking into tantra that much, and are curious to discover what’s it about, this article will provide you with all the information you need to connect with your partner on a more meaningful level and maybe enhance your relationship and not just your sexual life. 

So, for those who don’t know what tantra actually is, tantra is considered a system of combining breaths, sounds, movements, and focus that lead to longer and more intense orgasms, more intimacy, more significant connection, altered states of reality, and transcendence during sex. 

Tantra vs Kama Sutra

If you’re new to this term, you might easily confuse Tantra and Kama Sutra, although they are very different in their nature. Kama Sutra is focused on advanced sex positions while Tantra shows you ways to move and connect with your energy while in these certain positions, which then turns these positions into a completely different experience for you. When trying tantric sex positions, partners should be aware of taking deep breaths, inhaling and exhaling, in order to activate their nervous system that leads to a flow state. 

As much as Tantra is not focused so much on the specific positions, there are a few positions that will be used more often in Tantra to achieve incredible orgasms and an even deeper connection with your partner. If you were looking for new tantric sex positions to try out, here is the list of our favorites!

#1 Goddess Pose

If you want to feel like a goddess during sex, this position is perfect for you. The insertive partner will have to lie on their back, while the receptive one squats over the partner who is beneath them. While doing so, their feet should be flat on the ground. Think of it like a cowgirl position, yet with a more profound experience. 

When you’re in the goddess pose, make sure you maintain eye contact with each other. While the partner on their back can enjoy the goddess riding them and making them feel all kinds of sensations. Don’t forget about inhaling and exhaling deeply. While trying to connect your breath, and get into a flow you’ll never forget.

#2 Open Pincer

In the Open Pincer pose, the receptive partner will lay down while their legs will be in the penetrative partner’s hands. On the other hand, the penetrative partner will kneel on their knees and move towards the receiving partner. For even a better sensation, you can use a pillow or sex wedge under the hip of the partner who is laying down.

There are various reasons why this position is great for tantric sex. It’s great for anal sex, and also for vaginal penetration. The Open Pincer position also creates more space in the vulva, and it’s recommended for self-clitoral stimulation. Last but not least, it’s a position that allows partners to maintain eye contact and shared breath which leads to great pleasure and orgasm. 

#3 Snake Trap

This position is quite different from the previous two mentioned above as the couple will not be close to each other. However, their legs will by being entwined in “V” shapes, while sitting across from each other. Both partners will have their hands on the ankles of the other person to maintain stability and leverage. 

This position is perfect for those looking for a bit more shallow penetration, without losing eye contact. It’s also great for those who love having the entire body view of each other as the position is exposing their bodies. More importantly, it’s great for deeper emotional intimacy, sharing breath, and even for foreplay. 

#4 The Tiger

If you’re a big fan of a spooning position or simply love to cuddle a lot during sex. The Tiger position is what you’ll be most interested to try out with your partner. This variation of the spooning position creates more space between the chest of the insertive partner and the back of the receptive one. To get into it, both partners will need to lie down next to each other on their sides. 

This is one of the tantric sex positions that doesn’t require so much energy and stamina. So any couple can try it at a certain point in their relationship. If you and your partner are looking for an intimate, slow. And sensual position to enjoy each other and achieve great orgasm together, the Tiger is perfect for you. 

#5 Third Eye Bliss

Just by reading the name of this tantric sex position. You already know it’s mostly about connection and eye contact, right? The Third Eye Bliss is a missionary position in which one partner will lay on their back while the insertive partner will start the penetration. The partner who is penetrating will be on top of the receiving partner looking them in the eyes and maintaining the connection and shared breath. 

Both partners can focus on inhaling and exhaling at the same time. And seeing what sensations it causes in their bodies. Once they start feeling all that sexual energy moving through their bodies. They can inhale it up to their spine, all the way into their brain, and slowly exhale it. 

Conclusion

Whichever tantric sex position you choose, you will not be wrong. All these positions are great to enhance your sexual life, and also your relationships. Talk to your partner to discover which position they would like to try and start practicing them when you are ready. Soon, you will discover a completely different dimension of sex that will produce more pleasure than you could ever imagine.

tickle orgasms

Tickle Orgasms And Everything You Need To Know About It

 Tickle Orgasms And Everything You Need To Know About It

 

Have you heard of tickle orgasms or the arousal a person will feel when being tickled? If this is your first time hearing about it, don’t worry – you’re not the only one. As much as knismolagnia, the official name of tickle orgasm, is just another kink that someone might enjoy. We have rarely heard about this term or even discussed it among our friends while casually conversating about sex. 

Tickling Fetish

Tickling is a form of stimulation that is produced by a light touch on one of the sensitive areas of the body. Such as armpits, collar bones, stomach, ribs, feet, inner thighs, behind the knees and elbows, etc. When talking about sexual fetishes. Tickling can play only a part of the sexual art or it can be the entire play. Also, tickling fetish can also be enjoyed even if there is no nudity or overt sexual activity. 

Those who have this particular fetish can achieve orgasm just from tickling alone. In other words, there is no other stimulation needed to have an orgasm. Besides getting tickled to have an orgasm, there are people who are being turned on when tickling other people or just watching them getting tickled. 

If you want to take your tickling fetish a step further. You can even use props such as feathers, vibrators, electrical current. Or something else that might enhance this stimulation. Depending on how you want to express and practice your kink. You can choose from a variety of options and decide whether you will use it just as foreplay or you want to reward your sexual partner with an orgasm. 

Tickle Or Fetish?

To respond to that question, we’ll need to first go back to the definition of fetish. It is when a person or object has a deeper meaning for someone and becomes part of its favorite sexual experiences. In some cases, they are absolutely required for a person to climax. Tickling in its nature is not so different from foreplay. However, what makes it fetish as it occurs in sexual scenarios and it leads to sexual pleasure. Simply put, a tickling fetish means you get turned on when someone tickles you or vice versa.

In psychology, having a tickling fetish is considered atypical behavior. However, it is more than usual and completely normal for a person to experience this feeling. And sensations that come with it. 

Tickling & Sexual Pleasure

Now, let’s explore the tickling fetish a bit more if we want to find the answer to why some people feel sexual pleasure from getting tickled. If you’re to ask a person with knismolagnia what turns them on, a common response would be related to laughter. When a person is being entertained by another person’s actions so hard that they can’t help themself to laugh. It’s quite sexy and doesn’t seem like anything awkward, right? 

The other common reason is the arousal that comes from the physical sensation. In other words, tickling will get people turned on because this sensation is pleasurable for them. We can’t also avoid the fact that tickling involves the body’s largest organ, the skin. 

Tickling fetish is also quite common in the BDSM world where ticklers might enjoy the feeling of dominance and the ability to make the tickled squirm, and the tickler might feel helpless. For instance, the dominant partner might use blindfolds and restraints to improve that powerless element and add more passion into the game. Speaking from the tickled’s perspective, if they are tickle-averse. They can even relish the aspect of torture that being tickled brings for someone who is completely restrained from moving. 

Is Tickling Fetish Common? 

Just like the majority of fetishes, it’s difficult to determine whether a certain fetish is common or not because they were never documented in a scientific way. Even with surveys on sex, we cannot rely on people telling the complete truth about their sexual activities and preferences due to many factors such as stigma, taboo, and shame. 

However, if you were to look up the term ‘tickle porn’ on the Internet, you will find more than 600,000 results. Which kind of implies that the fetish is more common than you’d think. There are even dating sites created specifically for people that share this fetish and want to meet other people who would love to experience a tickle orgasm. 

How Safe Is It? 

There is really a small chance of being at any risk when getting tickled. Especially because there are no fluids exchanged between the partners. More importantly, neither of the partners will be permanently scarred or damaged from the tickling fetish. Of course, there might be some reflexes involved that might come as a body’s natural response to being exposed to tickling. Yet these things happen quite rarely as both partners give their consent on exploring tickling in the sexual concept. 

When even talking about more serious consequences, there have been only a small number of cases of death by laughter. What’s important to note here is that neither of these people who are a part of this statistics has actually died because of the laughter. Being in poor health was the reason for their death. So it’s safe to say that you cannot die of laughing too much or too hard. 

If a person is laughing too much for more than usual, they might faint or it might trigger cataplexy, a lack of ability to move your muscles. As it is with everything, try to not take it too far. If you enjoy tickling or getting tickled, be conscious of it, and instead of testing the boundaries. Remind yourself that you’re doing it for the incredible sexual pleasure and great orgasm that will follow. Going to the extreme will rarely produce more sexual pleasure, so keep it modest, yet funky! After all, we are talking about tickling!
