Body of Knowledge – Erotic massage aims to teach the intimacy often missing in sex

scene-header-3-25-09Friday, Mar 27, 2009 | By: MATT SCHAFER | COMMENTS

Having a sexual relationship with someone doesn’t mean there is an intimate bond.

“Usually people think they can achieve intimacy through porn star sex, but that’s not typically how it works,” says sex expert Michael Alvear. Alvear, who is gay, gets thousands of questions sent his way as part of his “Need Wood” column in David Atlanta magazine and his blog at mikealvear.com.

“People don’t usually ask about how can I be more intimate with my partner, it’s, ‘How can I be closer to my partner?’” he says.

Bob Findle, the owner of the Body Electric School, is working to change the way men love each other.

“A lot of time the focus is put on penetration,” Findle says. “And after that what happens? You roll over and go to sleep.”

Findle’s school aims to teach men how to become better lovers, more intimate partners and more self-aware individuals through classes in erotic massage.

Celebrating the Body Erotic with Body Electric- May 1-2 2010

As the local coordinator I wanted to invite you to attend the work of  BE. The next local workshop will be held May 1st- 2nd May 2010 . For more information please visit the website BodyElectric and then give me a call.

A first step in your exploration into your erotic potential. CBE involves the mind, the body and the heart in a series of exercises that use breathing, stretching and touching. Many men are searching for a more meaningful connection to themselves and to others. When they take responsibility for their erotic education, they realize how much there is to learn about awakening the erotic energy that lies within all of us. They begin to realize the satisfaction that comes from learning how to both give and receive pleasure. The workshop focuses on the entire body and is conducted in a setting that is playful, safe and honoring. The benefits of this work are:

  • The participant gains greater acceptance of himself as an erotic being,
    both physically and mentally.
  • He discovers ways to develop a more satisfying erotic relationship with others.
  • He becomes more aware of spiritual dimensions in his erotic explorations.

Celebrating the Body Erotic is a full two-day clothes-off workshop (9am-7pm) for those who are ready to vigorously explore new levels of feeling, both within themselves and within a community of men.

Living an electric life- Body Electric celebrates 25 years

Published Thursday, 16-Apr-2009 in issue 1112 GLT (Gay and Lesbian Times) San Diego
Twenty-five years ago, sexual revolutionary Joseph Kramer had a vision of what would become Body Electric, now based in San Diego.
He christened his creation with the title of a poem by Walt Whitman (who surely would have attended Body Electric’s workshops with gusto had they been available).
The first stanza of “I Sing the Body Electric reads:  “The armies of those I love engirth me, and I engirth them; They will not let me off till I go with them, respond to them, And discorrupt them, and charge them full with the charge of the Soul.”
Whitman eloquently sums up what many feel are three of Body Electric’s many components: community, connection and change. People sometimes think or hear Body Electric is just about massage. Not so. The work is about providing people the space to experience their potential as fully integrated, loving and self-aware beings through touch, conscious breath, deep connections and honoring the wisdom of the body. The work is about using erotic energy to generate pleasure, healing and transformative insight. Plus, Body Electric offers, in abundance, the opportunity to just laugh and have fun with some of the most wonderful souls you’ll ever meet.  Read full Article

Embrace

Entrainment is a powerful principle. I think this is why human beings like to hug one another. When we hug, even for just a brief second, our hearts entrain and we remind ourselves that there is only one life on this planet. One life we all share.
