With penetrating insights into the nature of touch and straightforward advice on its enhancement of the pleasures in lovemaking, this attractive and comprehensive guide from the bestselling author of The Art of Sensual Loving enables partners to scale the heights of sensual intimacy. As Dr. Stanway shows, touch is a powerful stimulant that can be used to achieve more exciting and more satisfying lovemaking. All types of touch—holding, hugging, stroking, kneading, squeezing—provide a means not only of demonstrating affection but also of triggering desire. Indeed, touch both inspires and expresses intimacy. By discovering the secrets of loving touch and by incorporating them into a healthy, active love life, partners in a sexual relationship can heighten their physical pleasure at the same time that they realize new and exciting aspects of their sensual natures. From the messages in body language to uninhibited sexual satisfaction, from precautionary measures to the prolonging of orgasmic pleasure, from the problems—psychological and physiological—in lovemaking to the joys of intimacy, Dr. Stanway’s guide offers both counsel and encouragement. And the magic of touch offers possibilities of solution. Touch is viewed, too, in relation to numerous other subjects, including seduction, flirting, kissing, foreplay, fantasy, fetishes, masturbation, love games, and alternative lifestyles. As Dr. Stanway avers, by fully exploring the sensual potential of touch in all these areas, partners can increasingly enhance their lovemaking—but they will also find themselves leading happier, healthier lives.
