Let’s Talk About Pleasure
Shallowing is the tantalising sex act to dive into 2024.
Move over intercourse, we are delving into waters less travelled and diving into the sex act of shallowing.
Shallowing is a form of sexual play that involves lightly stimulating the entrance of the vagina. Outercourse, if you will…
Shallowing is done during a hot session of steamy foreplay or a solo session. Just lightly enter the vagina with the tip of the penis or finger or using Ambi by Lovense. Not quite your clitoral vibrator. Hovering just over the entrance of the vagina, which is packed with specific nerve endings that intensify women’s pleasure. These nerve ends also stimulate lubrication in the vagina, certainly pushing women over the edge of the waterfall (pun intended).
Sticking to the theme of focusing on external stimuli to intensify our sexual pleasure in 2024, erotic playlists are going to be all the rage.
Never stop flirting with your partner, regardless of the length of time you have been together. Flirting is beneficial for your sex life, in essence it helps partners feel more desirable.
Pay compliments, while you’re busy on the job. boost their self esteem and it can be a bit of a turn on for you too.
Remember, stunning and sexy lingerie goes a long way too.
Did you ever stop at the traffic light and glance at the car next to you? Pull back your shoulders and lower your eyes, and look at them long and hard. You are never going to see that person again, or the chances are slim. But you will drive away with a smirk on your lips.
To be honest, flirting is the most essential aspect of self we must never lose.
Empower yourself with some lingerie, your personal secret, it boosts your ego. And YES! we must have some sense of ego, for oneself.
Talking dirty to your partner is an age old trick and gets loads of people turned on. You can build it up as you go along …”hmmm I love it when you etc… embellish it with pride and wisely chosen words you never thought would fall off your tongue, but will certainly be a pleaser.
Edging has been around for quite some time – I think more people practice when flying solo. You can take stretch your orgasm out for as long as you want to.
It takes practice and involves hi levels of sexual arousal for an extended period of time without reaching a climax.
Stop stimulation before you reach that level of climax. Stop and feel how everything pulses. Keep going. Stop and start, a little further or deeper.
Using a clit pump or full vagina pump is a sexy addition to the experience – your pumped clit will be engorged with fresh blood and sensitive – Pump, engage, pump and stop. You can engage the pelvic muscles, pulse them; not moving your body. Hmm – yes this is as delightful as it is beneficial.
Engage. Lock. Relax
In other words, engage those Kegles. Make it a part of your daily practice. Besides lifting and tightening the pelvic muscles, it is very pleasurable too. Edging toward Tantic – where you do not touch, but use the breath.
