Scientists say that all the electricity that is in your body, if put together, can be used to light a five-candle bulb. It is not much. Quantitatively it is … Continue reading 10 Tantric insights to transform the sexual experience

When we all know everyone’s life has been hard enough already. It’s hard to watch the game we make of love, like everyone’s playing checkers … Continue reading Happy St Valentine’s Day!

Man is 70% water. The rest is passion. It was a hot December night in Bali. Loud music heated up the atmosphere even more. We were in Sky Garden— the most popular club in Kuta, where the delegates of the UN youth conference I participated in decided to spend the night. The day was … Continue reading December in Bali

Yes, it is THAT complicated! I found this "map" of relationships which explores the variety of relationships that exist within the romantic and sexual realm of our communication. Polyamory, Monogamy, Swinging, Cheating, Open Relationships and other all have a place in this attempt to present the different options that we might often not even hear … Continue reading Mapping Relationships
We all have sense organs which are similar, but our perceptions are totally unique... Perception is about relationship- to ourselves, others, the Earth and the universe. --Bonnie Cohen, Sensing, Feeling and Action
