Slow Pleasure is a guide to sex and pleasure, teaching people of all genders and sexualities how to claim, prioritize, and integrate pleasure into their daily lives.
We live in a world of breakneck speed. It can be intimidating and nearly impossible to slow down. In this crisis of pace, we are often disembodied, disconnected, and forget that we even live in a body! Slow Pleasure is here to show you how to relish pleasure instead of rushing like it's a task on a to-do list.
In Slow Pleasure, sex and pleasure educator Euphemia Russell teaches us that slowing down allows us to be available to our bodies, and from this place of mindfulness we can increase our ability to feel pleasure. Embodiment and pleasure are practices that need to be cultivated, guided and supported. Sex is a social skill. Slow Pleasure teaches you how to explore new touch and how building curiosity will increase your capacity to feel a range of new sensations. Being slow can even help cultivate desire, manage pelvic pain and sexual "dysfunction".
Pleasure is an essential practice to support us in the modern world, and Slow Pleasure is here to teach us how to feel it deeply.
