The Brain Is Your Most Powerful Sex Organ

Written by J.B. Blount

What organ gives you your most intense sexual pleasure? That's right: your brain. Now you can learn to maximize your brain's potential for pleasure...

Stress and anxiety can destroy a good time in bed. If your mind isnít inrepparttar right place, it wonít matter how healthy you are or how expert your lovemaking. If your mind isnít inrepparttar 126081 right place, then you wonít enjoy sexÖ and your partner probably wonít either.

For a male,repparttar 126082 most powerful male sex organ is undoubtedly his brain. What are men most afraid of? Erectile dysfunction? Premature ejaculation? Ask any man who ever had a performance problem and heíll tell you: his biggest worry is that it might happen again. Studies show that this anxiety alone is enough to cause it to happen again, or at least to take a lot ofrepparttar 126083 pleasure out of something that is supposed to berepparttar 126084 ultimate in pleasure.

Anxiety destroys libido in women just as it undermines performance in men. Ask any woman how her libido is doing when sheís stressed out by her job, her kids, or her relationship. The answer: Zip. Nada. In fact,repparttar 126085 Journal ofrepparttar 126086 American Medical Association states that 43% of women regularly experience sexual difficulties, mostly low libido, or poor arousal. This issue frequently leads to difficulty reaching orgasm, which in turn leads to frustration that further undermines arousal.

Like any other sex organ, your brain needs exercise to function at its best. Otherwise stress and anxiety will take their toll on your sex life. What needs exercise is notrepparttar 126087 brain functions that generate critical thinking, but ratherrepparttar 126088 more emotional limbic centers.

The most powerful exercise for your mental sex organ is mental rehearsal. Mental rehearsal isrepparttar 126089 use of active imagination and memory to teach yourself to perform successfully, just as Olympic athletes do. For this approach to work, you need to be inrepparttar 126090 right frame of mind (positive, upbeat, and self-confident) as well asrepparttar 126091 right state of mind (an alpha to theta brain wave state).

Addiction to Complaining By Margaret Paul, Ph.D.

Complaining is a way of life for some people. It was certainly a way of life for my mother. I donít remember a day going by without her complaining, endlessly. I donít think I ever heard a word of gratitude out of my motherís mouth. No matter how good things were, she would manage to find something wrong. No matter how perfect I was Ė and God knows I tried to be perfect! Ė she always found something wrong with me, as well as with my father.

Overrepparttar 126081 years of counseling others, Iíve noticed that some people start every session with a complaint. They canít seem to help it. Like my mother, they are addicted to complaining.

Why do people complain? What is it they want or hope for when they complain?

People who complain are generally people who have not donerepparttar 126082 emotional and spiritual work of developing a loving, compassionate inner adult self. They are operating as a wounded child in need of love, attention and compassion. Because they have not learned to give themselvesrepparttar 126083 attention and compassion they need, they seek to get these needs met by others. Complaining is a way they have learned to attempt to get this. They use complaining as a form of control, hoping to guilt others into giving themrepparttar 126084 attention, caring and compassion they seek.

Complaining is a ďpullĒ on other people. Energetically, complainers are pulling on others for caring and understanding because they have emotionally abandoned themselves. They are like demanding little children. The problem is that most people dislike being pulled on and demanded of. Most people donít want emotional responsibility for another person and will withdraw inrepparttar 126085 face of anotherís complaints.

This is what my father did. He withdrew, shut down, was emotionally unavailable to my mother as a way to protect himself from being controlled by her complaints. Of course, he didnít just do this in response to my mother. He had learned to withdraw as a child in response to his own motherís complaints and criticism. He enteredrepparttar 126086 marriage ready to withdraw inrepparttar 126087 face of my motherís pull, while she enteredrepparttar 126088 marriage ready to make my father emotionally responsible for her. A perfect match!
