Love Poem By David Whyte, Tonight-The Erotic Literary Salon-Live

Found this lovely excerpt from a love poem waiting in my in-box. Taken from, “The Sea In You: Twenty poems of requited and unrequited love,” by David Whyte.
The almost silent rain
will heal me as it falls,
as if the sound itself
were a bed where I could lay
in your arms
letting the stream
of life
go by
and easy
as I was with you
I wanted the hours
to linger on
and heaven to fall
and all the waters
of this mighty
run through me as 
my memory of you
runs on
through my
waking body
Requited or unrequited, to love is to move between homecoming and exile, between the presence and absence of our beloved as well as ourselves. In this collection, human desire pulls with the force and rhythm of a sea tide, emerging from and receding into mysteries larger than any individual life. The book begins with the reverential title poem and concludes with four works that reflect the power of place to shape revelation; the way stone and sky and birdsong can point the way home. Whether tracing the sensual devotion of bodily presence or the painful heartbreak of impermanence, the poems keep faith with love’s appearances and disappearances, and the promises we make and break on its behalf.
Tonight – The Erotic Literary Salon-Live. Doors open 6:30, come early for a good seat. Until then…

This Tuesday, Nov 17 the Erotic Literary Salon-Live will be in Philadelphia. The press release says it all: – Hope to see you there.

If this is a style of erotica you enjoy – “What they found was not the warm, stirring seclusion of lovers, but a sterile isolation that stifled then stilled expressions voiced from hearts as it dried and wilted swelling statements from loins. Here, where there was no hope of overture, their longing to issue in concert a candid crescendo of lust disappeared.” – you can subscribe here to receive more:

Writing from the personal is always welcomed at the Erotic Literary Salon. A side effect of reading these articles might be an adult sex-ed experience new to you and your sex partner.



When your lover is playing with your nipples the same region of the brain will be stimulated as when your clitoral, vaginal or cervical area is been stimulated.


Evidence #2

When your lover is playing with your nipples the same region of the brain will be stimulated as when your clitoral, vaginal or cervical area is been stimulated. The research behind this can be found here: the Journal of Sexual Medicine, Volume 8, 2011. This is an excerpt from the study:

Female participants were asked to lie inside an fMRI machine and alternate between stimulating the clitoris, vagina, cervix and nipple. An experimenter instructed the women to “comfortably” stimulate one of those body parts for 30 seconds, then to rest for 30 seconds before repeating the process with a different part of the body. All participants were asked to simulate themselves in the exact same way to keep the results as constant as possible (e.g., when it came to nipple stimulation, women were asked to use their right hand to “tap the left nipple rhythmically.”)

The researchers discovered that stimulation of the nipple activated an area of the brain known as the genital sensory cortex. This is the same brain region activated by stimulation of the clitoris, vagina and cervix. What this means is that women’s brains seem to process nipple and genital stimulation in the same way. In light of this, it is not at all surprising that many women are aroused by having their nipples touched and that, for some, this may be enough to lead to orgasm.

STEP 1 – Squeeze

Your lover should squeeze the fingers together so that he/she raises your nipples slightly

STEP 2 – Lick

With the tip of the tongue he/she should lick your nipple in circular motions.

STEP 3 – Suck

After a few minutes of licking, he should pucker the lips around the nipple and suck gently, then more firmly with vacuum sucking motions.

STEP 4 – Intensify

Save the most intense sensation until the end.

Hint: As with every sexual activity it is important not to make any major changes to the technique as the orgasm reaches. Makes sense.

The Fine Art of Penis Thrusting

Faster…harder…deeper…slower…the man who learns to vary his thrusting technique during penetrative sex will not only be able to last longer, he will be rewarded with greater arousal and delight for both himself and his partner.

#1 The Memorable First Thrust

I am going to let you in on a little secret.

Many women, once aroused, consider the very first penis thrust to be one of their most favourite parts of intercourse. Make it amazing and send her soaring by asking her exactly how she would like your first stroke.

Is she in the mood to be teased with a few shallow thrusts, having you enter her only an inch or two?  Would she prefer you enter her halfway while circling your hips? Or does she like one luscious thrust right to the hilt? Once she shares her preference with you, respond accordingly. – Home site
