the science behind Sage & Wesley’s hot love scenes
“Apparently, I’ve lost the ability to form actual words with my mouth. My blood flow is all directed at my erogenous zones, which, under Wesley’s touch, are pretty much everywhere.”
~ Sage, from HAVEN, chapter 26
Glacier-Melting Romance is all about sex-positivity and includes fun, flirty, mind-blowing open door love scenes. But are the multi-orgasmic scenes between Sage and Wesley mere fantasy?
Nope. In fact, there’s good science to back up the heightened pleasure both Sage and Wesley experience in the pages of HAVEN.
First, Sage and Wesley develop a sense of trust and intimacy before connecting in bed. That’s basic psychology. The less anxious you feel about performing or being attractive enough, etc., the more you’ll be able to relax and enjoy your partner’s company.
Second, both Sage and Wesley are highly attuned to their own body. Each one has developed a heightened awareness of their physical sensations through their daily yoga and meditation practices.
As reported in Medical News Today, one “study examined the effects of 12 weeks of yoga on 40 women who self-reported on their sexual function before and after the yoga sessions.
After the 12-week period, the women’s sexual function had significantly improved across all sections of the Female Sexual Function Index: “desire, arousal, lubrication, orgasm, satisfaction, and pain.””
A 12-week neurological study in New Delhi, India, followed the effects of yoga on men’s sexual satisfaction and found similar results.
A meta-study at the University of British Columbia in Vancouver, Canada found yoga regulates attention and breathing, lowers anxiety and stress, and regulates parasympathetic nervous activity. In other words, yoga activates the part of the nervous system that tells your body to stop, relax, rest, digest, lower the heart rate. Yoga also triggers metabolic processes that induce relaxation. These effects are associated with improved sexual response.
