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! My plan is to post biweekly, drawing from my own reflections, thoughts, feelings, and experiences of pleasure; from other writers and sources on the topic; and most importantly, from the conversations that I hope will emerge with you, my dear reader. Please comment below and let the wild rumpus begin!

3 Common Blocks to Pleasure

Head’s up! These states of being will prevent you from feasting on pleasure, and I want to name them for you: 1. The pleasure-impaired and pleasure-adverse dilemma – Pleasure’s not on your radar, you have little awareness of its importance and you might even think pleasure is overrated or frivolous. If this sounds like you, you don’t yet know what pleasure can do for you and what you’re missing. Read more >

When you have had a drink of love …
