WEEK 7: EXPLORATION + PLAY
There are two weeks to go and after all of your hard work, it is finally time for some play. Sexual play creates intimacy and is a good indicator of quality sex. Continual curiosity and exploration is key to sexual fulfilment.
This week we encourage you to foster a sense of play and curiosity. Be experimental, but also make sure there is plenty of laughter and fun. As usual, remove any and all pressure and find ways to spark joy in your passionate pursuits. No matter how familiar the domain is, there are always new things to be discovered.
Chanelle talks about some of the ways toys can be shared in your intimate playtime.
When tapping into your sexual creativity it helps to think of your body and your partner’s body as a blank canvas.
For this exercise, you need paintbrushes of various sizes and body paint or any water-based paint. Take turns transforming each other into living art. For a different twist try using edible paint like chocolate sauce, or coloured icing.
When you are finished, you can take your art to the next level by rubbing your bodies together. The clean up could also be playtime or provide an opportunity for aftercare.
There’s a wide range of sex toys for couples and they are a stimulating way to create unique experiences and sensations. Even if you already have toys or have tried them before, there is always a new toy to try, or you can experiment with different uses for your existing toys.
Remember, toys are not just for genitals! They can be excellent tools for exploration. You are only limited by your imagination. Use toys to stimulate your erogenous zones, or even use them on muscle aches or to aid in relaxation.
Part of having good sex as a couple is the willingness to be curious, playful and imaginative. How that works in each relationship is a unique experience.
For this exercise, we ask you to fully unleash your erotic playfulness and use your collective imaginations to surprise and delight each other. You can engage in role-play, you can play a board game nude, you can chase each other through the house, you can find an inventive way to use a random household object. See how long you can keep the experience going.
