Transcription of First Part of Interview with Jaiya

Eric Michaels: What are the 4 Obstacles to Sexual Health, Wellness and Pleasure?

Jaiya: Well the first has to do with - Bio-Mechanics (Flexibility, Body Pain, and Function) Have you ever wanted to try that position from the Kama Sutra, but your body just won’t bend that way?  Or what about that position that hits the G-spot but your partner’s knees just can’t take it?  Couples often feel like failures when they can’t bend, stretch or move in certain ways.  Even more of a turn off is when your body is in pain.  Pain inhibits your sexual desire. Obstacle Two:  Bio-Chemistry (Your Brain, Hormones, and Blood) Your B-Spot (Brain) is your biggest sexual organ, but what happens when the chemistry just isn’t there?  Why is sex so hot in the beginning of a relationship but fades with time?  Why does that hot new Cosmo technique have you soaring, but you do it again and it lets you down?  The answer:  bio-chemistry.  We are complex creatures and our hormones effect us in big ways.  For example, if you are breastfeeding, you have a hormonal cocktail in your system designed to decrease your libido. And I haven’t even touched on blood, which when toxic, can keep you from arousing fully.

Obstacle Three:  Psyche (Emotions, Shame, and Communication) Resentment is the number one reason why couples in my practice stop making love with each other.  They get angry, they stop communicating, and they feel awful.  You probably have never been taught how to communicate your sexual needs.  You probably have never been taught how to work with your emotions around your sexuality.  And I haven’t even touched on sexual shame, which can lead a sex life to it’s grave.

Obstacle Four:   Scar Tissue (Trauma, Infection, etc) Scar tissue is the most overlooked of the four obstacles.  Ask yourself, “Have I had any infections (bladder, yeast), any surgeries, traumas (falls, childbirth), or inflammation?”  These are all causes of adhesions or scar tissue in the body.  Scar tissue can have a massive effect on your sex life from inability to engorge with blood (erection) to loss of sensation.

Each of these obstacles affects the other.  For example, if you have scar tissue it can affect your flexibility.  Your hormones can effect your emotions and visa versa.  When you take all of this into account you can easily see how sex tips and techniques don’t work for everyone, and definitely won’t work in the same way when you take into account the obstacles to success.

The great thing about the four obstacles is that they can change from obstacles to Four Pathways to Optimal Sexual Wellness and Pleasure.  When you pay attention to your overall health and vitality, you increase your ability to feel more pleasure.  Then sex tips start to do what they promise and you have a formula for mind-blowing, ecstatic sexual experiences that leave you breathless.
