Many chronic diseases lead to low libido. This can result in intimacy issues. When faced with a chronic illness, the emotional connection resulting from sexual intimacy can be beneficial.
Sensuality is achieved through living in the moment. What are you feeling, hearing, seeing, smelling and tasting? Focus on the sensation you’re experiencing instead of worrying about your cell phone notifications.

It’s best not to focus on the orgasm. Aim for feeling good and making a connection instead of achieving a specific goal in the bedroom.
Listen as Amanda Testa joins Dr. Susanne Bennett to discuss how to improve intimacy.
