Love and Sex

Before I left Paris I visited the  I Love You Wall.

And not too far from there I visited the Musee de l’erotisme.

Sometimes love and sex are talked about as if they don’t co-exist.  Sure you can have love without sex and you can have sex without love.  Put them together – and that is where the magic happens!

Let Your Sex Be as Unique as the Eiffel Tower!

You know what this is, right?

Eiffel web

It’s one of the most recognizable images in the world, right?

eiffel night web

Even when it’s night and it’s a different color, you still know what it is, right?

What about sex?  It looks different to different people, right?

eiffel night 2

Slow, fast, soft, rough, loving, lusty – countless adjectives can be used (just like the Eiffel Tower – beautiful, ugly, elaborate, sterile.)  The Eiffel Tower is unique and original.  Why don’t you let your sex be original too?

Experience Your Partner Like a Work of Art!

Do you see her?

L'Arc

Look at her strength and power!  The way she just rises up out of the ground and commands your attention!

Arc inside

Look at her delicate details!

Arc curves

Look at her delicious curves!

And the way the world looks through her eyes!

I love the Arc De Triomphe!  I love the way it just sits there at the end of the Champs-Elysees.  I love that I can’t take my eyes off of it.  I made a video postcard comparing the Arc De Triomphe to a lover or partner.  I hope you enjoy it!

Under the Arc De Triomphe you will find the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier and an eternal flame.

How is your flame for your lover these days?  Still burning?  Does it need a little more fuel?  What needs to happen in order to experience your partner like a work of art?

You Are Beautiful!

I am beautiful web

I am beautiful - Rodin

Ah beauty and vulnerability and strength all swirling together.

Look at the way he lifts her up!  Do you let others lift you like that?  Do you lift others up?

Look at her taking center stage, up in the air, allowing herself to be seen!  Do you let yourself be seen by others?

Look at that trust, she knows she will not fall!  Do you trust that deeply?

Look at that vulnerability and that strength and power.  Do you let yourself be vulnerable?  Do you acknowledge your strength?  Do you channel your power?

The name of this piece is “I Am Beautiful.”  Can you say that out loud?  Can you claim your beauty?  Can you share it with the world?

It is a simple truth.  Your beauty.  I see it.  Do you?

Cranky in Paris

Auguste Rodin - Despair

Auguste Rodin - Despair

It’s true.  I am in the most romantic city and I am CRANKY!  I don’t know if it’s the rainy weather, my allergies or the knowledge that my trip is ending in a week.  Perhaps I just woke up on the wrong side of my Parisian bed.  Whatever the cause, I feel sluggish and unmotivated and blue.

Here’s what I could do.  I could judge myself. I could shame myself or admonish myself for not being grateful about being in Paris to begin with.  But really, that will only make me feel worse!

In fact, I can be having a cranky day and still feel incredibly grateful for my time in Paris.  I can be grumpy and still love my life.  Both things can be true. Just like you can feel frustrated by your partner and still love him.  You can be angry with someone and still feel compassionate toward him.  You can also feel love for someone and know that it’s not meant to be.  When we try to deny our emotions, we are no longer present.  And part of my experience  in Paris has been focused on being present in my life – whatever that brings.

So I am going to let myself be cranky (a funny thing happens when you just let yourself feel something, it tends to lessen…but try to squelch or deny that feeling and oh boy will it linger!).  I am going to allow myself to be lazy in Paris (even though I only have one week left, even though there are voices in my head or even external voices reminding me to enjoy and relish and savor every minute).  Today I am relishing by acknowledging how I feel.  Today I am savoring by letting myself be cranky in Paris!

Bring a Little Mystery into Your Relationship – Video Postcard from the Louvre

Louvre web

We went to the Louvre to make a video postcard on a picture perfect day!

Louvre pyramid web

Even without going inside the museum, there is a lot to see!

Louvre statues web

The Louvre is one of the most famous museums in the world.  There are so many wonderful works of art inside, it was hard to narrow it down…but I knew what I wanted to talk about.

Being mysterious is not the same as keeping secrets from your partner.  Think of mystery as a way to titillate and excite your partner.  What are some small ways you can surprise or intrigue your partner this weekend?

Sex and Creativity – 2 Life Forces. A Video Postcard from the Musee D’Orsay.

Oh  Musee D’Orsay!

D'Orsay web

I wish I had been allowed to take pictures of the wonderful art and lighting and architecture inside.  Here is a video from the official site that will give you an idea.

When I left the museum I felt energized.  I started to think of art and creativity and sexuality.  I think sexuality and creativity are in the same family and I made a  video postcard to explain what I mean.

When I finished my video, I crossed the Seine to head to my metro station and found these love padlocks.

Love locks web

Paris is a city that is alive with art, creativity, sexuality and romance!  You don’t have to come to Paris (although I do recommend it) to wake up your sexual or creative life force.  Try going to your local museum, spending some time in a art supply store or even watching a movie that inspires (or titillates you).

Shake Up Your Sexual Routine – Video Postcard From Le Centre Pompidou

On a friend’s recommendation I decided to check out Le Centre Pompidou and I’m so glad I did!

Pompidou outside web

The architecture is incredible!

Pompidou inside web

The lobby is vibrant and energetic!

Above is an elevator (the winking eyes carry people from floor to floor).

The architecture wasn’t the only treat, the museum of modern art is wonderful!

It was a treat to see work by Picasso, Dali, Kandinsky, Pollok and more!

The invention, innovation and surprises at the Centre Pompidou had me thinking about sex and ways to make it more interesting or surprising.

Here is a video postcard which shows footage of the Centre Pompidou and addresses shaking up your sexual routine.

Relaxation is Good for Your Relationship!

Last week I purchased a 4-day Museum Pass in order to take in a bunch of Paris museums as well as Versailles.

Versaille Palace

The Palace is incredible and ornate and a bit overwhelming.  You could get lost wandering from room to room.

Versailles grounds web

The grounds and fountains were dazzling and HUGE!  We definitely got a workout making our way around the property.

Temple of Love web

Above is the Temple of Love.

Versailles village web

And this is part of Marie-Antoinette’s Hamlet.

I felt like I was in another world as I strolled around the property and buildings.  I also noticed people lounging everywhere.  They sat on benches near fountains, had picnics in the grass and rowed boats in the grand canal.  Not only were people slowing down, they were also holding hands, gazing into each others’ eyes and connecting intimately.  Relaxation can positively impact your intimacy and relationship.  I made a video postcard about relaxation and Versailles.  I hope you will watch it and then give yourself permission for some downtime.
