Practicing Slow Sex

Practicing Slow Sex

Explore the “slow sex movement” with Nicole Daedone, author of Slow Sex: The Art and Craft of the Female Orgasm.

Nicole is a speaker, author, and educator focusing on the intersection between orgasm, intimacy, and life. She is the founder of OneTaste, a cutting-edge educational company bringing a new definition of orgasm for both women and men. She is the author of Slow Sex: The Art and Craft of the Female Orgasm (Grand Central/Hachette, May 2011) and has appeared on ABC’s Nightline. Her work has been featured in the New York Times, the New York Post, the San Francisco Chronicle, and 7×7 Magazine, among others.

The practice at the heart of her work is called OM or Orgasmic Meditation. OM uniquely combines the tradition of extended orgasm with the practice of Zen Buddhism, mystical Judaism and semantics. Helping to foster a new conversation about orgasm —one that’s real, relevant, and intelligent—she has inspired thousands of students to discover the pleasure available to them by making OM a part of their daily lives.

Learn how this shift in thinking and a daily attention to orgasmic pleasure can revolutionize not only your own sexuality, but the foundation of how you think about yourself and how you live in your body.

Great press release. Guess busy making $ not having sex.

Fast. Slow. Don't ya KNOW that variety is the spice of SEX. Many of these articles from care2 delve into the wonders of, essentially, TANTRIC SEX - which is fine but every couple should be switching up all the time. Try and gauge your partners moods and energy levels. Slow is fine sometimes but then there are others where she needs to be thrown over the arm rest of the sofa and pounded.

The responses in here are predictable too. Many (mostly guys) have never even considered slowing down so you can BOTH enjoy the sensations more. Then there's the ever present and horrendously repressed and no doubt VERY screwed up Theresa W who proves she's ignorable by the fact that she admits to never even reading these articles and still finds them "disgusting." Poor creature and I feel even worse for whatever partner she latches onto.

Fast or slow the one major factor in whether sex/love is adequate or GREAT for both of you is orgasms ... lots and lots of BIG orgasms. Try this and see how this works for you.

My wife, who is admittedly rather my junior, climaxes much faster than I do. It's not a problem; just want to suggest that these days the old nonsense about women's needing five times the stimulation doesn't really stand examination.

I know slow sex works great for me, but it's near impossible to make guys to slow down. Is this supposed to be a solo practice?

Get in, get out, get beer.
