❤️Chapter 1❤️ – SEX & SOCIETY by Mike Lousada
Mike Lousada is a Psychosexual Somatic practitioner who works alongside his wife, therapist Dr Louise Mazanti. In this interview, he looks at society’s views of sexuality through history. Mike argues that we should move away from a view of sex that’s about control and fear towards one where the emphasis is on freedom of expression, pleasure, intimacy and love.
❤️Chapter 2❤️ – SEX & PSYCHOLOGY by Dr Louise Mazanti and Mike Lousada
Dr Louise Mazanti and Mike Lousada are husband and wife, and also work together as sex therapists. They talk to us about how early formative experiences shape our sexual desires; whether that’s the kind of affection in our family or our earliest sexual experiences. They say ‘show us how you were loved as a child and we will show you how you make love.’
❤️Chapter 3❤️ – SEX & SPIRITUALITY by Dr Louise Mazanti
After a successful career as a professor of art and design, Dr Louise Mazanti had a spiritual awakening that took her in a new direction. She wanted to learn more about her body, sexuality and spirituality. She now works alongside her husband, Mike Lousada, as a therapist. She sees sex as an energy, a kind of life force that flows through our bodies. Spirituality, she says, is a sense of feeling ourselves as part of something bigger than ourselves alone. Louise’s advice starts with feeling real, breathing, and being aware of your body and its energy.
