Sexual Healing & Empowerment on TV

Here is a News Piece I did for Telemundo TV:

In this #MeToo era, sexual healing and education is crutial to our evolution. So much is coming out of the shadows. I learned Tantra and became a Sex Surrogate partner because I knew I was wounded from sexual assults and needed healing. I learned as I healed my own sexual wounds, so I could help others who have any sexual trauma whether it be physical, psychological or emotional…
 

We can be traumatized by actions as well as words that condemn our primal desires to make us feel bad for having sexual desires. This is especially true for women who have been conditioned from a very early age to deny our sexual urges and to resist advances from others — instead of redirecting these attempts into a win-win.

This causes sexual tension that can be destructive and lead to sexual violence as I experienced in my own journey. When I forgave the perpetrators by realizing that they were products of a dark and unenlightened society, I was able to embrace true sexual healing and to forgive men in general. This allowed me to move beyond victim/perpetrator and develop a deep understanding and acceptance so that I can support others in their sexual healing as well.

I invite you to comment and if you wish to speak with me further, I welcome conversations on this shadowy subject that in many countries is either banned or under tight scrutiny. Even social medias have strict rules and guidelines that you put this video in a gray area. Let’s bring sexuality and pleasure back into the light of empowerment so we can bring more joy into this world at this time. Your feedback is appreciated. Like and share if you think this is important and valueable.

A Tantric Sex Surrogate explains how to increase intimacy for more powerful orgasms

sex-tips-from-a-tantric-sex-surrogate-mare-simone

In the vast and Cosmo-flavored world of sex tips, there’s an overabundance of technical advice in circulation.

Touch her g-spot like so. Try the corkscrew blowjob. Put a pillow under your ass.

That kind of stuff.

Yet, there’s next to nothing out there that offers advice on how to build the intimacy that makes those techniques actually work. After all, you can only trace the alphabet on someone’s prostate so well without the viable emotional connection that makes it really fucking good … regardless of how fleeting that connection may be.

That’s a problem that Mare Simone solves every day in her practice. Simone is a certified tantric educator, sex surrogate and author who helps men and women learn to clear emotional and physical sexual blocks and view sex as an empowering, helpful tool. Part of that work includes instructing couples and individuals on how to build and maintain intimacy during sex, partially because the ability to create intimacy leads to greater confidence, and partially because more powerful orgasms happen from what she describes as a more “open, vulnerable state.”

Never ones to shy away from anything that makes us come more professionally, we asked her for some tips on how to create the intimate connection that primes us for a better bang.

Become a pro at eye contact

“I love to start couples facing each other, sitting up,” Simone says. “I have them talk about what they love about each other,  what they’d love more of, and what they’d love to experience with each other (like a fantasy or a desire) … all while looking into each other’s eyes and breathing those words in. When you maintain eye contact while talking about sexual desires, it really builds intimacy before the touch, which makes the actual touch more powerful when it does happen. Sometimes when you verbalize what you love or need, it can feel vulnerable or naked. But, it allows you to become open and let love, pleasure and acknowledgement in. That makes for really great sex.”

She also recommends incorporating eye contact into actual sex as well.

“Anytime you touch, touch with eye contact. Make love with your eyes open. It’s so rich … it feels like you’re diving deep into this pool and not shutting your eyes because you’re afraid of what’s at the bottom,” she adds.

But, it’s not like you have to keep your peepers wrenched open A Clockwork Orange-style; she fully acknowledges that there are times when it feels right to close them and sink into pleasure. In general though, she explains that the more eyes-open you are, the more connected you can be and the more powerful orgasms you can have.

“There’s a penetration of sorts that happens with eye contact,” she says. “And it can be really intense when you’re also having sex — it’s like you’re being penetrated from both sides.”

Experiment with face and hand caressing

“This, to me is one of the most beautiful things,” Simone says. “I love hand holding, hand touching, those sort of things. And sometimes when someone touches my face, it just feels so warm and giggly and sweet, like it activates some part of my inner child. That in itself is opening.”

One of the best positions she recommends for hand stuff is to have one partner place their hand downwards, and the other placing theirs upwards on top so they can feel the polar opposite of the other person. Then, from there, Simone suggests you play around with movement in your hands and fingers by stroking each other’s palms, wrists and fingertips. Even though doing this is nonverbal, Simone says it can help couples explore a lot of communication and sensation with each other; something that also works to build sexual tension and make each person feel more connected.

Long, caressing strokes to build tension

Simone is a big advocate of the long, slow, delicate stroke.

“Have one person put their hands up and receive their partner’s touch, while the other caresses their body. Start slowly at their face and, then make your way down the sides of their arms to their chest, finally finishing at their fingertips. Then, with permission, caress their breasts (if they have them), coming down across their stomach to their inner thighs.

Making these long, caressing strokes connects the body to the mind, which makes it much more emotional-feeling,” she says. “That’s where you become really open and the sex becomes really good. When you do this, you become vulnerable, so there’s no real game playing or social scripting of traditionally “sexy” roles. It’s just what you mean and what you feel.”

Do a little dance

On the more erotic end of the spectrum, Simone recommends you build tension and intimacy by dancing for your partner. It can be a sitting dance, or one standing up; a stripping thing or a more conservative one — whatever feels comfortable and gives your partner a display of your body. Of course, maintaining eye contact during the deed can make it that much more powerful.

If you crack up, you crack up. Try not to — we double dog dare you. Even if it’s the more masculine doing the dancing, Simone says the humor of it can cut through to the more relaxed, vulnerable place that makes the body more open for intimacy.

Moan together, in sync

“This can be immense if you can actually harmonize your orgasms,” Simone says. “But even if you can’t, sharing the same breath and sound intensifies things a lot. In tantra, energy moves on sound, so you double the energy when you sound together.”

That’s not to say that spontaneously moaning when your partner does will make you come or make the sex revolutionary … it’s more about doing it when it feels natural to. But, like all forms of breathing exercises, it does really place you in the moment. It’s hard to think about their sweaty, lumbering man boobs or the curious way your dad tries to tell you he loves you when you’re synchronizing your breath with someone while they squirt on your showiest throw pillows.

ABC News Special with Sex-Surrogate Partner Mare Simone

A reporter from ABC – 10 News called just after dark and wanted to shoot right away but agreed to my plea to give me 10 mins! Last night I got a call from Dr Christy Wise who had just been interviewed by Emily Valdez from San Diego’s local Channel 10 News! Emily was eager to shoot right now… in record time we set up lights, makeup… Skype! I’m on!

Mick shot the entire 10 min interview, so we can sift out gems for sharing in my best of Mare` and bloopers coming soon!

This interview is from a news clip on how couples who have sexually unsatisfying marriages can get help both from talk therapy and Sex Surrogacy combined.

While Sex Surrogate partners are most commonly used in therapy for individuals who don’t have partners to practice and learn intimacy skills with. Surrogates can also be great guides to help couples deepen their love and intimacy!

“What makes surrogacy successful is the relationship between the surrogate and client. The trust that develops keeps the relationship strong. Both develop genuine caring feelings for each other, as one would in any close friendship. Our friendship is real and deeply shared.

All the lessons learned in surrogacy, become a model for you of a healthy, honest, and close relationship. This gives you the confidence to develop loving relationships of your own.” Says Tara Livingston Author of Sex is the Least of it Surrogate Partners Discuss Love Life and Intimacy. A heartfelt and enlightening book on this subject that I am featured in, along with other surrogates — past and present.

“As a Surrogate Partner and a Tantra Love and Intimacy Coach for over 30 years I’ve helped many couples who were inexperienced or had some form of sexual trauma that caused them to shut down. This hinders there ability to connect deeply in intimate and passionate ways, even when the desire is there!

Surrogate partner therapy a.k.a. touch therapy helps them understand how to authentically be intimate, loving, and passionate with one another!

Working with couples I focus on one person at a time, while the other partner is learning to touch in a variety of ways. Feeling what each other is actually feeling through a blend of intimate conversations, guided pillow talk and sensitivity exercises helps them connect more from their heart and soul; rather than just from their head.

This allows deeper sharing with an ability to feel what the other is feeling while they are being explored in loving, playful ways.

Challanged or “sexless marriages” can get much quicker results when combining touch therapy with traditional talk therapy! Touch therapy can personally guide and educate them in sexual matters. Working with a surrogate can help them learn to communicate their sexual desires and secret wishes with their partners in positive ways that get good results.

While Surrogate partners are more commonly used in therapy with singles who don’t have partners to learn and practice intimacy skills with, surrogates can also be great guides to help couples deepen their love and intimacy!

Couples can learn to develop sensual and loving skills so they can have a fabulous marriage and more fun between the sheets!” XOXO Mare

Transcript of “Sex Surrogates Can Help Prevent Cheating” Segment:

* Transcription courtesy of ABC 10News —

SAN DIEGO – A local clinical psychologist said she believes fewer people would cheat on their spouse if they underwent sex surrogate therapy.

“Look what’s happened with Ashley Madison,” Dr. Christy Wise told 10News.

Wise is touting not just talk therapy, but also touch therapy from a sex surrogate.

“How are you going to go and tell your wife that you don’t know why passion doesn’t feel alive, you don’t know what to do and you don’t know how to bring it?” Wise said.

Mare Simone, a sex surrogate and tantric sex coach who works in San Diego and Los Angeles, said, “I started my surrogate training 30 years ago.”

But how is this different from prostitution?

“For me, the major difference is the transformation, the outcome. What does somebody get on the other side of an experience working with a Surrogate Partner? Does it really affect one on a lasting basis and help heal or transform their issues? And, if so, then that’s true therapy,” Simone said.

Simone works with all kinds of people who have issues with sex — married, virgins, even victims of sexual assault.

“But the people that most benefit from it are singles who really don’t have partners to work with,” Simone said.

Simone said she works in tandem with a psychologist, a talk therapist.

“And I offer touch therapy so that they can feel again or connect into parts of them that they haven’t felt yet,” Simone said.
Wise said legally this is a gray area; it’s not legal or illegal.

Libido Alive Diet – For a Luscious, Orgasmic Life-Style!

Hearts banner
Valentine’s Day is just around the corner ladies and gentlemen, and with this sweet and sexy holiday comes certain expectations. While most of us might look forward to spending the evening in with our lovers, some may feel unprepared and possibly even anxious about performing correctly on this most sensual holiday.

However, it may be easier than you think to enhance your libido, vamp up your sex-drive and get ready for a wild night with your lover. Interestingly, the foods we consume can directly affect our sex-drive, and either become aphrodisiacs or mood killers. For thousands of years human beings have known about the link between food and sex drive, but it wasn’t until science began researching these links that we’ve been able to prove that certain foods do hold power over our bodies. Now we know which foods boost or numb our reproductive organs. By paying attention to our diets and consuming the right nutrients, we can live a fabulous and orgasmic life-style.

To help you gain a better grasp on the right foods for your sex life, we have crafted a brief overview of libido improving aphrodisiacs that are guaranteed to make you ready for V-Day. Some of the items on our list might surprise you while others might not be so surprising, but come at each of them with an open mind and prepare yourself for a lustful experience with your lover after giving these scrumptious sex foods a go.

Avocado

It doesn’t take a stretch of the imagination to realize that avocados look an awful lot like a pair of male testicles. The ancient Aztecs even named the avocado tree the “testicle tree”. Aside from there erotic shape, avocados also have been proven to vamp up the level of testosterone in those who consume them on a regular basis. This is excellent for both men and women as testosterone increases the libido and drives blood to the genitalia.

Ginger Root

This spicy root has a direct affect on the circulatory system. Although most people opt to consume ginger when they have a virus of some sort, it also has a powerful effect on blood flow to the vagina and the penis thereby directly increasing sex-drive.

Tip: Make some ginger root tea on the morning of Valentine’s Day to get yourself and your lover in the mood.

Arugula

While it may not taste like something that will get you ready for action, arugula has a powerful effect on the body. Not only is this super food excellent for nearly all of our vital organs, but it also has a way of ridding our bodies of toxins that prevent arousal. You can easily add this spicy leafy green into a salad to gain the orgasmic affects later on.

Chili Peppers

Noting says sex quite like spicy food, and with good reason. Chili peppers are notorious for stimulating a certain tingle between the legs, and thanks to their power to help the brain release endorphins these spicy herbs made their way onto our libido foods list. You and your lover can either dare each other to chow down a bite of a chili pepper or you can simply add it to your favorite dish to literally “spice-things-up.”

Tip: To increase the effect of chili peppers/powder, add some to a batch of libido-enhancing avocado based guacamole to take things up a notch.

Basil

You’re probably thinking—Basil? But, this tasty little herb packs some serious orgasmic power. In fact, this sensual gift from the earth even has the power to trigger sexual urges and desires in otherwise flat libidos. Soups like tomato basil have an incredible ability to heat things up from the inside out. Don’t judge an herb by its reputation, instead add a little basil to your meal and discover a powerful orgasm in the aftershocks.

StrawberriesChocolate covered strawberry

Erotic, sensual and passionate strawberries are the perfect food to feed your partner to get things going and are one of the most common foods during Valentines. Heart shaped and rich in zinc (a well-known aphrodisiac), strawberries are a must eat to boost your sex-drive and increase your desire to please your lover.

Tip: Nearly all berries contain high levels of zinc and manganese which is crucial for blood flow, energy, and sexual arousal. Other excellent choices include raspberries and blueberries.

Chocolate

How could we leave this natural aphrodisiac off of our list of libido enhancing foods? Chocolate, primarily dark chocolate, is jammed full of caffeine which stimulates the heart and jump starts your circulatory system. Additionally, theobromine (the chemical that powers-up the heart) is alive and well in dark chocolate and will also make you more sensitive to your lover’s touch, making sex even more pleasurable.

Tip: Opt for chocolate covered strawberries for a sensual treat you and your lover can share that is sure to increase your stamina and get your blood pumping.  

This year, discover the Libido Alive Diet and make this Valentine’s Day a day you and your lover won’t soon forget.
