When it comes to mindfulness, we may often think about meditation, yoga, and breathing exercises.
But, do you know it is also related to sex? Have you ever thought of practicing sexual mindfulness?
Well, “sexual mindfulness” is going to be the next big thing, according to sexperts.
Sex educator and intimacy coach Georgia Grace told POPSUGAR Australia, “Mindful sex is the practice of being present in the physical, emotional, psychological and erotic processes in your body.”
“Mindful sex is a process that allows you to feel your body’s full erotic potential and has flowed from a dramatic rise in popularity of embodied practices like yoga, tantra, and meditation,” she added.
Grace, who is an ambassador of We-Vibe, said, “The Western world now has scientific evidence to prove the benefits of Eastern traditions, this proof has encouraged people to start engaging their bodies in mindful practices, and they’re feeling the benefits.”
“For the first time human beings are able to look inside the body and brain on a neurological level, we can now see how practices like yoga, meditation, mindful masturbation, and mindful sex impact our body and how it shapes brain development and the nervous system.”
Explaining the benefits of practicing sexual mindfulness, Grace told POPSUGAR, “Mindfully experiencing sensation can expand your relationship with pleasure. When you bring awareness to pleasure you will feel more present and aware of the dynamic sensations occurring within your body.”
“Sexual mindfulness can help you regulate your body, and if you’re in a relationship, it can help you co-regulate each other,” she added. “The benefits can include increased empathy and understanding, relieving stress and anxiety, greater connection to your body and others, understanding your desires and greater access to pleasure.”
