Testimonial from one of our vaginismus patients:

My husband and I watched the first three sensate focus videos this morning. Wow, they were so helpful. We spent almost two hours just enjoying each other through touch. For me this is huge as I am always going in a 100 different directions and my mind is full of what do I need to get done next. Even though it was meant to be non-sexual we ended up having fun together afterwards without intercourse. I have a long ways to go on learning how to trust my husband and learn to be intimate, but this is an excellent start and we are both looking forward to watching more.

Sensate Focus Exercises is a wonderful way of building trust with your partner

The four basic stages of Sensate Focus Exercises include:

Stage 1 Each partner spends about 30 minutes caressing the other’s naked body, head to toe and front and back, except for the genitals and breasts. The emphasis is on the “giver” touching in a way that he or she enjoys. The aim is to focus on each sensation and the reaction to it. If this is too much too soon, couples can start with simple hand-holding or back rubs.

Stage 2 The couple repeats the exercise from Stage 1, except this time the “receiver” tells the giver what kind of touching he or she wants and gives direction on what’s most enjoyable.

Stage 3 The couple expands the exercise from Stage 2 to include touching of the genitals and breasts, but not exclusively. The focus remains concentrating on sensations and expressing wants and pleasures without the goal of orgasm.

Stage 4 The couple now may engage in mutual touching and stimulation to the point of orgasm, including intercourse if mutually desired.
