Powered By Pleasure

Powered by Pleasure is the name of the blog supporting the evolution of my work called Unlock Pleasure. In this blog I want to explore with you all the aspects of pleasure, from day-to-day gladness to exuberant delight, the small joys and X-rated rapture too!

Please comment below and let the wild rumpus begin!

The Rhythm of Expansion and Contraction in Unlocking Pleasure

The Rhythm of Expansion and Contraction in Unlocking Pleasure

Rhythm is a key element of pleasure. By this I mean attuning to your own internal rhythm, to let it guide your movement through the day.
