“In particular, our findings show that women with meditation experience have higher scores related to arousal, lubrication, orgasm and desire than women with no meditation experience," study co-author Lori A. Brotto, a professor at the University of British Columbia and author of Better Sex Through Mindfulness.
It appears that in the women who meditated, mood was a significant factor and was also a predictor of improved sexual function and desire.
Another study of women with low arousal showed improvement in arousal, lubrication, and sexual function amongst women who learned to meditate.
The meditations, Brotto says, can also help men with specific sexual problems, such as impotence.
Brotto says, “To be fully present with each sensation, without judgment or commentary, is what I think has been missing for the countless people who are dissatisfied with sex.”
Being distracted and unable to halt the incessant chatter running through the mind is a big passion-killer. Learning a simple technique like Ishayas’ Ascension can teach you how to be present in any situation and I might add, can be used at any time, even sex.
