Questions asked:

  • What is low libido and how can it improved?
  • Masturbation makes one want more sex and one cannot be satisfied.

We are all the same parts but organized in a different way

Centering your pleasure:

  1. It is important to always communicate with a partner.
  2. Not all sex leads to orgasms, focus on enjoying the ride and not the end goal. This does not mean you should not want an orgasm its is your right to get an orgasm.
  3. understand your body. Know what your sex organs look and feel like and a good way to do that is masturbation.
  4. Pleasure is beyond penetration.
  5. Consent sex is pleasurable sex.
