Couples stop making love for all sorts of reasons – maybe they’ve had children and just get out of the habit, maybe one of them seems to want sex more than the other and they’ve reached a stalemate, maybe they’ve been together for a long time and lapsed into companionship – but that doesn’t mean they can’t start making love again. There is a common myth that endures which says that once lost, the sexual urge is lost forever. This is simply not true.
The seven day Making Love Retreat for Couples was created by Diana and Michael Richardson. Diana has written various books like Slow Sex, and Tantric Sex for Men co-written with Michael. Tim (my partner) and I started running these workshops because we got so much out of it ourselves. We hadn’t stopped making love but we knew there was more intimacy, connection and joy to be had. Plus there was an imbalance between us, Tim wanted to make love more than I did, I started to feel pressurised and could become avoidant. One of the delights of this work for me, and for him, is that now I initiate more than he does. And one of the things we feel passionately about is – sharing these possibilities with other couples.
