“Working with women and couples for the last 4 years, I became increasingly aware of the struggles relationships were enduring as the ways of the world are changing.  Everything is so instant and we are always looking for a faster, better way for everything we do. Because of this, it’s starting to hinder the level of intimacy in some personal relationships.

I found it to be my passion to help couples take one month every year and make themselves a priority.

Yes, sex is intimacy, but intimacy does not always equal sex. During the 30 days there are options presented to help the couples bond and open the lines of communication”

 

day-1

  • Watch this video! It takes 5 minutes. Feel free to share with your partner…
  • Then each of you make a separate list of what you want from sex and Intimacy from each other, on paper & exchange, talk about what’s on your lists. Also- set a goal of what you expect to get out of this challenge together. It’s helpful to write down and post somewhere that you can everyday.

day-2

  • Did you make your list? Not so bad, huh?
  • Spend 3 minutes taking selfies together! Pick your favorite one and post on your profile with the caption: We are working on “Us”!

Couples massage.

Massage is a great way to continue to learn how each other’s bodies are constantly changing.
Take time rubbing and massaging different parts of each other’s bodies & give signals when something feels better than another.

Check out some massage products on my website, I carry them all in stock.

There’s plenty of time life to get a big O in!

This orgasm you can do alone or together, but try to make the journey there drag out. When you are almost climaxed, start thinking about how exactly you feel and let it linger before giving in.
