Lucid Dream Sex – Intimate Seduction – Brainwave Entrainment Lucid Dream Enhancer

Brain Power Music

The new erotic lucid dream music track allows your subconscious to take you into a sexual fantasy as it uses sound elements to influence your dreams. Using binaural beats and isochronic tones that range within the different stages of Sleep Cycles such as 4Hz to 16Hz, this will allow your intimate fantasies to come to life in your dream reality. The first stage will help you to gain deep relaxation in both mind and body as you focus on your specific sexually stimulating dreamscape. As you doze off into deeper sleep, the next couple of Sleep stages are mainly for your mind and body’s recharge and relaxation. The last stage contains the sound elements that are key factors into enhancing and influencing your sex dreams, which also taps into the REM stage. Listen with headphones for better results, and keep the volume at a comfortable low setting.

8 hours worth of powerful lucid dreaming sex. I have not tried this yet, but it sounds most interesting. Who will be the first to report on their experience at the Salon?

Christians Can Be Both Faithful and Sexual


Philadelphia, PA, June 5, 2018 – The Incarnation Institute for Sex & Faith (IISF) announces the release of a webinar series that will teach people how to live a sex-positive Christianity. Entitled “Reading the Bible with Sex-Positive Eyes,” this webinar series is the work of Reverend Dr. Beverly Dale, a Disciples of Christ pastor.


“The Christian church’s teachings that have fueled the purity culture, which prizes virginity before marriage, have been destructive for women and sexual minorities who have been captured in its guilt, fear and shame.” said Rev. Dr. Dale, a professor at Lancaster Theological Seminary. “This has got to change.”


The four-part webinar series includes the topics: “Introduction to Christian Sex Negativity: The Beginnings,” “Discerning Truth, Discerning Culture,” “Sex in the Bible: The Good, The Bad & the Ugly,” and “Sex: Whether, When, and How.” The webinars can be accessed through the website

Dale’s work is science-based and theologically grounded in scripture. Dr. Beverly Whipple, a researcher who helped to identify the G-spot and female ejaculation, is on Dale’s Advisory Team. Whipple said of her work on its behalf: “I am honored to be an advisor for this organization as a way to encourage the faith community to be involved in positive sexual health.” Another Advisor is Dr. Virginia Mollenkott, a Christian theologian whose focus corrects the trans and homophobia within Christendom has sought to empower the sexual minority communities. She calls the work of the Incarnation Institute for Sex & Faith an “imaginative and gifted ministry”!
