I felt honored when Tova Feder, PhD asked if I would be willing to be interviewed for this book: Sex Is The Least of It, is available on Kindle and Amazon.com! Soon to be in print!

It reveals the inner story of 25 surrogates lives. Inside and out both professionally and personally. There I tell my story of how I became a sex surrogate partner and why along a few of my favorite success stories!

This has been a long labor of love, bringing the stories of nearly 30 surrogate partners internationally to print.
Since the release of the film The Sessions, the time has finally come for a greater understanding of the importance of holistic sexual health which Sex Surrogate Partners can help provide. I am honored to be interviewed for this book and excited by the positive response it has received so far… hopeful for the future of ‘touch therapy’ and the position it is earning in the role of sex therapy and higher sex education!
Thanks to Tova for taking on this task and thanks to all our readers and participants for making this breakthrough method more accepted and wide-spread!  Bringing this vision to fruition so others can learn the true purpose and power of touch therapy. To help educate the public about the invaluable work of surrogate partners and the life-changing benefits of SPTherapy.
 
The concept of surrogate partners grew out of the work of Masters and Johnson in the mid-1960s. Their initial research centered on understanding and improving the sex lives of married couples. Eventually their work addressed the issue of helping un-partnered individuals treat their sexual dysfunction. As necessity is the mother of invention, they recruited an untrained group of women to aid these single individuals in resolving their sexual problems. Masters and Johnson created a mechanical approach to sexuality, devoid of emotional intimacy.
This book seeks to present the human face of a profession that has been shrouded in myths, misconceptions, and negative judgments. Rather than hearing the words of sexual robots, the participants reflect competence, intelligence, compassion, and wisdom. It is a profession that requires the ability to think and feel; to analyze and participate; to become emotionally involved yet maintain professional boundaries.
Over the past four decades, surrogate partner therapy has grown to combine social therapeutic modalities in addition to sexual therapeutic techniques. This book utilizes, in part, the approach of interviewing 25 current and former surrogate partners to examine, compare, and contrast their experiences. It seeks to present the skills of surrogates as opposed to the sexual sensationalism which clouds objective evaluation of the subject. In addition to the interviews there are several relevant articles and links to documentaries including the one I was in on The Discovery Channel, Strange Sex, being used with permission, exploring the work of other surrogates.

Seven Magical Benefits Associated With Sex

But one of those can help improve your body, mind and soul in seven additional ways. Seven. Which one is it? Sex, naturally.

Having good, meaningful, earth shattering sex can do more for you than just making you feel good. Working towards having a healthy sexual life can ultimately transform the rest of your life. Check out these 7 additional health benefits associated with sex and then hit the sheets and see how you can improve your life

1. Promotes healthy and younger looking skin:
Sex can make you look younger. Forget about all of the expensive facial creams. Thirty minutes of sex here and there can help you look seven years younger due to the growth hormone that is released during sex.

2. Helps you sleep better:
Ever wonder why you pass out immediately after an especially long bedroom session? Your overwhelming sleepiness is due to the oxytocin your body releases post sex. Also known as the love hormone, this chemical is released during child birth, breast feeding and orgasms causing the two involved to feel more connected and simultaneously get sleepy. So consider knocking boots on those nights you suffer from insomnia.

3. Not only reduces stress, but helps you deal with new stressors better:
In the moment, sex can help you reduce stress, but it also can help you deal with stress better in the long term. When you have sex, your body actively decreases its levels of cortisol, a chemical that builds up due to caffeine, sleep deprivation and most of all stress. High levels of cortisol actually make it harder to deal with stress when it comes, thus having lower levels can make you accept stressors more easily and think clearer through them.

4. It can help you lose weight:
Naturally, any type of physical activity is going to help you lose weight, but how many work outs do you really enjoy? Sex can appease both sides of you, the enjoyment side and the side of you that wants to lose weight. So hit the sheets the next time you don’t feel like going to the gym. Check out the caloric sex math and get inspired.

5. Boosts your self-esteem:
Sex can boost your self esteem and confidence in two ways. In one way, sex makes you feel attractive. Here is someone who can’t keep their hands off of you and wants you. That’s a great feeling and can make you feel sexy inside and out. Watching someone else enjoy themselves because of what you’re doing and being able to show someone what you like can also boost your self-esteem. If you aren’t sure what you like, take the time to find out on your own first. Spend some time alone with your hand or a toy from a sex store like Adam and Eve. Then take your new found knowledge to your partner and watch as they light up.

6. Can help you deal with pain:
That same love chemical that helps you sleep better also helps boost your body’s level of endorphins. This happy surge of chemicals works as a natural painkiller, which can help temporarily alleviate the pain associated with headaches, arthritis and PMS. So don’t skip out on getting busy the next time because you don’t feel good!

7. Builds a better connection to your partner:
Low and behold, that same little hormone that’s already done so much is going to help you again. Like I said before, oxytocin is released during orgasm (breastfeeding, hugging, and child birth). It’s your body’s way of connecting with others and creating bonds. When you orgasm during sex, your body releases oxytocin so you can feel bonded to the person who did it. Consider heading to the bedroom if your relationship is feeling a little dull and in need of a pick me up. adameve.com-294
