    The Power Of Seduction 

    “Seduction is really about your untapped power that you are not using that you want to release. Seduction is about charm, connection, vulnerability, pride, self-confident and appeal.”  — Chen Lizra, Social Entrepreneur, Somatic Life Coach, Author of My Seductive Cuba, and dancer.

    On a recent trip to Miami, a friend took me to a salsa club in Little Havana. I love to watch people dance. Especially salsa, rumba and tango. These luminous forms of dance are based on seduction. Watching couples twirl around the dance floor reminded me of a TED Talk by Chen Lizra titled “The power of seduction in our everyday lives.” Chen learned the art of seduction through her travels and studies with professional Cuban salsa dancers. She believes that seduction is an essential life skill that can be taught and made one’s own.

    I am cliterate! Are you? 

    Are you cliterate?

    “Being cliterate is understanding female sexuality, privileging female sexuality, respecting female sexuality” Ian Kerner, Sex Therapist and NYT Bestselling Author of She Comes First: The Thinking Man’s Guide to Pleasuring a Woman

    Female sexual anatomy and information about pleasureable sex have been primarily neglected in the education system. Many thanks to the team at Huffington Post and Cliteracy for spreading scientifically proven information on the female pleasure center. Watch the video below by Huffington Post’s Cliterate re-educator Jenny Block and let us know what you think.

    Women are having a lot more sex, but is it pleasurable? Is it satisfying? Orgasm is not the sole proof of her satisfaction. There are various connected elements of erotic bliss that lead to a crescendo of pleasure — body awareness, relaxation, presence, and fantasy to name a few. Understanding the female anatomy is a building block to enjoying one’s own body, and pleasing someone else is one important way we can begin to….

    “As many as three quarters of women can’t orgasm from vaginal penetration alone. In fact, just eight percent of women can reliably orgasm this way, studies estimate. An ill-cliterate individual might write off such information as proof that women just aren’t as sexual as men or that their bodies aren’t hardwired for pleasure. But women who are in same-sex relationships have similar orgasm counts to men and achieve climax in the same amount of time as their hetero male counterparts. The same is true when women pleasure themselves. Women’s bodies are not the problem. The problem is that most of us don’t have a full understanding of how they work.” – Huffington Post, Cliteracy Project by Sophia Wallace.

    Clitorial Anatomy Fast Facts:

    • The clitoris is not located inside the vagina. In fact, the “vagina” only refers to the genital opening and passage
    • The clitoris has executive tissue that swells when aroused
    • The clitoral structure in entirely is actually fairly equal in side to the penis
    • The clitoris has twice as many nerve endings as a penis
