"Touch between romantic partners: Being stroked is more pleasant than stroking and decelerates heart rate"

Touch has been found to entail positive effects in the person receiving it, whereas effects on the person giving touch have previously been unexplored. We investigated whether stroking the partner also is a pleasant experience for the person performing it, and whether it has similar effects on well-being and autonomic nervous function as being stroked or stroking oneself. Furthermore, we compared the hedonic and autonomic nervous effects of stroking the partner and self-stroking.

Being new here I begin to learn what´s new and maybe alo contribute some day.
Practising karezza since at least 60 years, I am 86, and I think that my wife is happy to always have a "fresh" husband at her side.
The health-effects on body, skin and all the rest of well-beeing seems to be very positive to both of us.

This only as short introduction, and thanks to Marnia´s help I can now participate here from time to time.

A thought-provoking Book and Review

In the book "Foreign Sperm" by Donald Tyler, some interesting questions are raised regarding the potential of sperm. The heart of Tyler's theory is that foreign sperm, any sperm into a woman, and another male's sperm into a man, cause diseases.

If Tyler is correct on any point, the absence of ejaculation during karezza may be a huge benefit to long term health.

Is There More than One Purpose for the Clitoris?

A recent expression that the clitoris has one purpose only is as follows: "A woman's body includes a number of super-hot erogenous zones, but you might say many of those are sort of, well, incidental. Not the clit. It's there for fun. Yup, that’s right. The clitoris is the only part of the body designed solely for pleasure. So, while other body parts used for sexual pleasure have at least one other purpose to them, your clit is just there to get you off."

My Wife's Clitoris

In some circles where common sex is adored, all it takes is for someone to say, "clitoris", another to say, "8000 nerve endings", and everyone within earshot will genuflect in complete agreement.

At our house, my wife's clitoris has been pretty neglected, and yet, in the last five years, she (with my help) has enjoyed more sexual pleasure (that often takes her breath away) than the prior 65 years of her life.

Have You Named Your Sex Organs?

From the beginning of our marriage we have taken a reverent but playful approach to our lovemaking.

For the first couple years we alternated back and forth between "wand of light/sacred space" and "penis/vagina" when talking about our sex organs. Then we favored "penis/vagina" as somewhat easier to use for every day. With Karezza, our love life is always so positive that we talk about our lovemaking and sex organs a lot.
