||LOVE AND SEX
by Dr. Marvin H. Berenson
Love and Sex first addresses the various ways that individuals can seek and find new friends and lovers. Love is boundless, but we need to reach out and grasp it. The quest for love awakens the imagination and revitalizes us at any age.
You will learn about barriers that exist from traumatic experiences, growing up in a dysfunctional family, poor choices in relationships and to the belief that you are loveless. Solutions are offered to overcome inner barriers and conflicts that interfere with your search for love. I encourage using a series of exercises to facilitate overcoming past difficulties that continue to play out. The objective is to become increasingly self-directed and free of inhibitions, guilt and fears related to love and sex.
Love and Sex emphasizes the inner peace and happiness brought about by having romance and intimacy in your life and how to achieve it. Couples learn the ways to increase mutual respect, share core elements and understand each other’s individuality as well as the togetherness that binds their closeness. A special chapter is devoted to helping older adults find romance. It is directed to those living alone and to reviving romance for those in a current relationship or marriage.
Finally, I discuss how to find the way to overcome deficiencies and sexual dysfunction. I describe mutual pleasuring, genital stimulation, ways to prolong intercourse and oral sex. I present tantric sex as an alternative to our usual sexual behavior and especially emphasize how it helps men and women prolong intercourse and find a new and more spiritual part of sex.
Sex is for all ages and can enhance self-esteem, excitement, newfound intimacy and a deepening spiritual connection and depth in relationships.
