Many of us are accustomed to learning through pain, struggle and suffering, but how many of us are willing to learn through pleasure, joy, and laughter? Seeking pleasure has often been poised as something you do with your time off, as a break from the real world or real life. What if instead of pleasure being an escape or a distraction, it could be something to become present with, and actually include in your life as a source of learning and growth? How much pleasure can you tolerate? Often we get to a certain intensity of pleasure and check out, or stop it, or do something to dissipate the energy. We’re uncomfortable being turned on, and often get uncomfortable when things feel too good, like it’s somehow bad or wrong when things feel really good. What if now is the time to change that? What if now is the time to increase your pleasure tolerance and get used to feeling pleasurable sensations in your body? What if those sensations could become familiar, comfortable and normal?
A common escape when the pleasurable sensations in the body get too high is the mind. Instead of being present for the direct sensations, many people go into their heads and start thinking. They think about how good it feels (which is a removal from receiving the direct experience), they think about what they want to have happen next, or they try to speed it up to get to the end to be done with it. Many people have adopted a consumption mindset when it comes to pleasure, a want for more, more, more, but when it actually shows up instead of slowing down and really getting present to the sensations, they rush through it. It's like the dessert is so good you want to finish it, rather than really being there to enjoy each moment. What if now is the time to truly know what it's like to relax (without getting tired or wanting to fall asleep), and be fully present to experience pleasure? Our bodies don't have to be shut down any more, nor do we have to save feeling turned on and alive for special occasions or moments in the bedroom. Feeling good and turned on in your body can become your new normal.
