Looking to heal a broken, or falling appart relationship? The answer may well be to stop having sex. Or at least, sex as we know it. Karezza, from the Italian word carezza, meaning caress, is the new "sex" technique circulating in the world of sex psychology. Karezza puts emphasis on hugging and touching and takes any idea of orgasm out the picture. But do you think "no sex" is the way to get that sparkle back in your relationship?
And who says it works anyway? ABCNews
interviewed Deb Feintech, a counselor from Maine, uses karezza with her patients ... and you might be surprised by the sex that's most in favor of come-less sex.
"The people most interested are men. It's very radical for them, but they are finding the emotional intimacy far outweighs any of the thrill of the chase and the mating mind."
Not sure I've met a man like this before, but I'm intrigued. The idea behind karezza is not reaching the sex "finishing line" of orgasm, therefore maintaining sexual energy and interest in your partner. Relationships start failing when even the kinkiest sex gets "ordinary," so karezza makes sex as kink-less as possible.
So is it not just endless foreplay? Well, kind of. There's a lot of listening to each others heartbeats, spooning, lying silently for 30 minutes in each others arms and eye gazing. All the stuff that you might forget to do when you've been with someone for a while.
I don't know how "groundbreaking" karezza is, but its a pleasant reminder of the kind of stuff you should never let fall out of your relationship, no matter how busy you are, or how comfortable your relationship is.What do you think of karezza as a concept? Is it just kind of chill foreplay? Do you need to orgasm to be satisfied with sex?Image Source
