Acupressure for Lovers: Secrets of Touch for Increasing Intimacy

Generalizations are odious, of course. Nonetheless, I think it's safe to say that there are two kinds of people in this world: serious-minded souls who read instruction manuals cover-to-cover before they undertake a project; and those folk who are born tinkerers. The latter may find the format of Acupressure for Lovers a bit off-putting. The book is a step-by-step manual that blends the traditional Western obsession with how-to books with Eastern practices such as acupressure, Tantric sex, and yoga. Its nearly three hundred pages are devoted for the most part to instructions, illustrations, and cost-benefit analyses of various sexual techniques. The is lots of practical advice on sexual arousal and satiation here. The problem is with presentation: the sexual adventurer who has already planned out the route may become impatient with information, however valuable, when it's arranged as a series of exercises designed for sexual healing. And perhaps unavoidably for a work that draws upon traditional Eastern cultures for its inspiration, Acupressure for LOVERS appears to have a very strong bias towards heterosexual sex in general and penetration in particular. Like the cellophane-wrapped dossier that comes with a new computer, this book may be used best when it's added to your reference library to be consulted should the need for trouble-shooting arise.

"When you touch or suck your partner's penis or vagina, you should give an equal amount of attention to the whole surface of the genital organ. Overstimulating one area can lead to problems. For instance, when a woman masturbates, the primary stimulation may be the clitoris, which corresponds to the kidneys and bladder. Excessive stimulation around the clitoris can tax the kidneys and possibly cause a bladder infection, water retention, or weight problems. The reflexology zones in the vagina are mapped out the same as the penis, except in reverse order. Thus, when the penis fits snugly into the vagina, these reflex zones match, creating a powerful connection between both bodies. During intercourse, all of a man's and a woman's genital reflex zones are in contact, creating one of the most pleasurable ways to heal all parts of the body.
