Erotic Intelligence

Standard

I got to watch some interesting videos today

This one on is about looking at desire from a place of selfishness rather than selfless love for the partner in a long term relationship.

I love how she explains that we need to cross over to the other side and watch this person in his/her fully glory and radiance rather than think of them as an extension of your own. If this is a sort of erotic intelligence, we can all learn it too.
