Super Stressed? Try Sex
I am back in university, which is now my second year at ECUAD - Emily Carr University of Art and Design - and it's already stressing me out. I am the kind of person who doesn't deal well with stress. For most of my life, I've been stress free. Living with my parents up to the age of 19 and all of a sudden I decide to go to school in Vancouver (the most expensive city in North America might I add) with a 20,000 student loan - that is now gone - and I am now experiencing debt and the stress to go along with it!
As I mentioned, I am not good at coping with stress. I'm too anxious to meditate, too poor to go to the gym (which actually de-stresses me, but I cannot afford it), and I get bored of things too quickly. I recently took up knitting, but being a beginner, my pieces don't end up perfect. I get frustrated very easily, due to being a perfectionist. Thankfully, I am going to be painting my life away soon once we get into more advanced projects in my painting class, but that also adds onto the stress of me being able to afford to paint as often as I want - which I can't. I have to savour my paint and canvases for projects, not for my selfish experiments. I am also a HUGE overthinker.
This morning, I woke up with the rankest headache, probably due to a stress related dream of my life going to shit due to money problems. I had to go to the bathroom, and couldn't fall back asleep once I got settled back in bed. So, I casually turn on my boyfriend in his muggy state like every other girl, and we get at it, and my headache is gone!
I haven't had sex in awhile - due to my period and my boyfriend was away for a week - and it's a wonderful way to forget about all the problems in your life. Another way is to get your loved one to massage every single part of your body, genitals or not. I just prefer foot massages personally since I'm always on my feet. An hour long foot massage is the way to my heart.
We actually encourage this here at The Art of Loving. We have wonderful classes on erotic massages that vary from the cock to the g-spot. They are great for relaxing, forgetting your problems and focusing on the moment (which everyone forgets to do once in awhile). We are always so focused on the future, or how we're going to do this, or do that. Focusing on the moment helps you connect with yourself and your feelings, espeically when someone you love is taking the time to feel and heal your body. Sex isn't always about fucking each others brains out.
We currently have a g-spot massage live demo scheduled for September 30th. Don't miss out on it! It's a wonderful experience and everyone always enjoys themselves. FYI: you are not allowed to make "self love" to yourself during it, despite the many phone calls we've recieved about it. It's a great way to learn how to de-stress each other.
