hump pillowI think the timing of this class was personally unfortunate for me. My level of patience and attention was tapped as the last few weeks have been extremely tense in every area of my life and I’ve been sick as well almost the entire three weeks.

There is plenty of good information in these sessions; about what gets in the way of welcomed consensus (two people equally excited and ready), what helps people feel more comfortable expanding their sexuality/sensuality, how couples can communicate with each other to enhance the experience for each person. There is tons of logic in each presentation and one would need to listen to each one many times to get the depth and passion behind each session.

The final session was about communication. My folks always said if you learn one thing in life, learn communication because it will take you very far. The concept of positive communication is important… the whole idea of catching more bees with honey than vinegar. The fact that the communication taught during this session to use with a sexual partner/fellow sensual researcher is a technique one can use with one’s boss and children simultaneously. You wouldn’t think it possible, yet its true. Getting oneself into that frame of mind in order to speak so calmly, evenly, and logically (regardless of the situation at hand) is a challenge for me.

My emotions, especially of late, as I try to patiently wait for a new cycle to actually start while still feeling the after effects of last year’s most trying medical cycle, have caused extra impatience and an even more critical nature which doesn’t move things along in a positive fashion. It’s interesting that one would choose honey over vinegar because it tastes better, yet it is the latter which keeps hot flashes to a minimum.

I appreciate the opportunity to be a part of the sensual/sexual aristocracy. I do believe as I heard my father say many decades ago, that “lovemaking is an art form.” The folks that teach these classes have taken this thought process seriously and have provided a class that gets one to think, and perhaps move forward in the erotic field of one’s life. Not a bad direction to enter regardless whether there’s a polar vortex or a drought or the house is shaking or the roof is coming off. Sometimes its better to focus within for awhile when everything outside seems so cloudy and crazy.
