Sex and Brain Chemistry - Cupids Poisoned Arrow

Submitted by LaughingHawk on

Cupids Poisoned Arrow was the book that finally gave me a path to this way of Making Love. Having the 3 weeks of 'Exchanges' and the mindset shift after internalizing the dopamine response gave me the motivation and ability to taste what this is all about. This short video gives my personal take on Marnia's work. It is a short video, but gets the core nugget across that really hit home for me.

Hot Sex - Traps you to the Body

Submitted by LaughingHawk on

I have found when I get into 'hot sex' I get very personally focused. It is almost like 'hot sex' feeds or agitates my ego. I get petty and feel I need to defend myself (often in ridiculous or comical ways about 'nothing'). This video explains, in a way, what is going on.

Five Years In

Next week we will celebrate our 5th anniversary. My wife turns 70 in July and I turn 59 in September. We continue to make love with PIV twice a day -- we slowly, gently wake each other up in the morning with scissors as we say our morning prayers, and most nights we make love and fall asleep spooning. Sometimes when we are home all day on the weekend, we will enjoy some "afternoon delight" and both feel "tuned-up" for the rest of the day. Five years in with Karezza, we are both in the best overall physical and emotional health of our lives.

Karezza and desire

Ejaculations are not interesting longer, but to stay close to the limit for long time is what I enjoy. I'm have been much more energetic and creative and filled with love feelings since I avoid ejaculations. However I have found out that there is some kind of taxation to stay close to the limit for an hour or two.

New and first entry

I've been reading the blog entries and I wanted to join the community for some time now.

I'm a virgin and a college student, and I used to be addicted to pornography and masturbation. However, coming across the Cupid's Poisoned Arrow by chance, it changed my world. I... no, my body agreed with every statement of the book. Reading the book was like the "The Truth will set you free" period.

My goodness, I have gained so much from revisiting Reuniting recently. The tips I have picked up from wealth of info on this wonderful site have made a huge difference to my practice in recent months, just wanted to express my deepest gratitude to Marnia and everyone who has ever contributed.

Our Karezza has gotten far better lately due to a few things:
