Dr. Kathy Maupin and relationship counselor Brett Newcomb talk about sensuality and eroticism in healthy sexual relationships.
- Talk about what you like, what feels good to you, what is painful, what turns you off.
- Provide feedback, express yourself during sex.
- Factors of arousal, building up to sex, plan ahead.
- Sensuality and eroticism are enhancing behaviors in a marriage.
- No mater what you learned as a child, it is not “nasty” to have sexual desire and to think eroticized thoughts.
- Recognize that a healthy fantasy life is a central ingredient to a satisfing sex life.
- Think about taking the risk to discuss or share your fantasies with your partner.
- Remember lead time. It is significantly more than foreplay.
- Physical sensuality is not just hedonistic and self-absorbed behavior.
- Your body comes with five senses. Use all five.
- Plan and prepare for “making love” as well as having sex.
- Talk to your partner about what is erotic to you.
- Talk to your partner about what things are sensual for you. Ladies remember wen he says he likes something about you or on you (like a nightgown, bluejeans, or something) do not dismiss it scornfully because you don’t happen to think it enhances you.

A report published in the July 2009 edition of the Journal of Clinical Endocrinology and Metabolism states that when looking at health markers (levels of hormones, risk factors, etc.), low Testosterone for men and a low estradiol for women are markers for higher risk of death from other diseases.
Dr. John Morley, local researcher, physician and head of geriatrics at St. Louis University, published an article stating that Testosterone supplementation improves spacial perception and eye hand coordination. He also reports that Testosterone helps older men improve bone density, and muscle mass and strength, making it possible for them to move around more easily.
Dr. Ian Chapman from Australia found that treating both men and women in nursing homes with testosterone decreased the number of times they were hospitalized. He suggests that aging patients will benefit from Testosterone replacement.
