Sensate Focus 101

Are you ready to take your sexual intimacy to the next level? Sensate focus might just be the key to unlocking a whole new world of pleasure and connection!

Sensate focus is a technique well known by Sex Therapists that is often used to treat sexual dysfunction and improve sexual intimacy. It was developed by Masters and Johnson in the 1960s and is based on the idea that sexual dysfunction is often caused by anxiety and negative emotions. In this blog, we will discuss what sensate focus is, how it works, and its benefits.

What is Sensate Focus?

Sensate focus is a type of therapy that involves a series of exercises designed to help individuals and couples become more aware of their bodies and their sexual responses. The exercises are typically done in a structured way, with each exercise building on the previous one.

How Does Sensate Focus Work?

Sensate focus works by helping individuals and couples become more comfortable with their bodies and their sexual responses. The exercises are designed to help individuals and couples focus on the physical sensations of touch and pleasure, rather than on performance or achieving orgasm.

The exercises typically start with non-sexual touch, such as holding hands or hugging. As individuals and couples become more comfortable with non-sexual touch, the exercises progress to more intimate touch, such as kissing and genital touching.

Throughout the exercises, individuals and couples are encouraged to communicate with each other about their feelings and sensations. This helps to build trust and intimacy, which can improve sexual function and satisfaction.

What are the Benefits of Sensate Focus?

Sensate focus has been shown to be an effective treatment for sexual dysfunction, including erectile dysfunction, premature ejaculation, and low sexual desire. It has also been shown to improve sexual satisfaction and intimacy in couples.

In addition to its sexual benefits, sensate focus can also improve overall relationship satisfaction. By improving communication and intimacy, sensate focus can help couples build stronger and more fulfilling relationships.
