Karezza: Sex Without Orgasm
Posted in In the News on Thursday, July 12th, 2012
Apparently there’s a startling new trend among couples. Get this: they withhold orgasm while having sex in order to improve their relationships. Completely insane? At first glance, I’d say yes, that’s fucking crazy.
However, therapists say that prolonging desire by putting off orgasm may actually help couples bond and create more loving relationships. “Karezza,” the term for sex without orgasm, is a gentle, slower way of having sex. Neither partner reaches orgasm, and, apparently, everybody lives in a constant state of pre-orgasmic stimulation and bliss.
That sounds…okay. But I was wondering, how else have people explored sex without orgasm in a less, well, karezza-y way? It ends up that people are almost as obsessed with not coming as they are with coming.
is all lovey-dovey, people in the BDSM community have this erotic sexual denial thing down, though for different reasons.
Orgasm is often denied based on power play within the relationship. A dominatrix may demand that orgasm is withheld indefinitely, and if her so-called “bottom” refuses to postpone orgasm, then there are definite consequences.
In addition to the kinky sides of sex without orgasm, sadly there are some women out there who have a hard time experiencing the big O. Does this mean sex isn’t fun? Well, most women who can’t seem to orgasm still enjoy having sex with their partners, even if it doesn’t lead to an orgasm for them (though hopefully they’re working on getting their climax on).
What do you think about sex without orgasm? Have you tried it? Would you try it?
