ENHANCING SEXUALITY AND EMOTIONAL INTIMACY
Welcome to Gott Sex?, a unique website about how to make real love, not just impersonal shallow sex. What's different about this site? Lots of sex education sites are all about the mechanics - lick here, touch there, try this new contorted position, add some whipped cream... And those are fine. But few (if any) of these sites teach you how to make sex deeply meaningful and intimate. And once you've had personal and deeply loving sex, you'll agree that intimate sex is definitely more fulfilling in every way.
To get what we mean when we say good loving sex, think about the difference between personal, loving sex and pornography. When people hear "pornography," they think of internet sites, videos or magazines. But "pornography" is also very common in people's sexual relationships, because at its core, pornography is about only getting off for yourself, and using your partner's body parts to both titillate you and bring you to orgasm. It has almost nothing to do with your partner's pleasure, needs, or feelings. There's no cherishing of each other. It's genital to genital release - and that's about it. Tits and ass. There's no building of emotional connection and closeness.
On the other hand, even though physical release may be involved, loving sex is a cherishing of each other's minds, hearts and bodies - the whole person that is our partner.
Couples who have loving sex treasure each other as irreplaceable, like the finest wine. They think of each other as "my beloved," not "the hot body I get to have tonight." They long to touch their partner not just to get off, but as a way to express the pure delight, warmth and awe that is the music of lovemaking.
In long-term and lasting relationships where couples enjoy intimate sex, they make love a lot over the years. But rather than getting bored, the lovemaking keeps getting better and better, because these couples communicate about their needs, their fantasies, and their feelings as those evolve over time. It's that ability to communicate about sex that we want to give you here: the tools to know your partner's wants, needs, special preferences, vulnerabilities, and delights, so you, too, can share in loving sex, and not just mess around with body parts. Loving sex leaves you close and fulfilled, not empty and alone.
Take a look around and explore what our site has to offer. Make sure to check out all the free content on our Gott Sex Blog. If you decide to give our program a try, do the exercises together with your partner and practice what you learn with each other. Overall remember this: every positive thing you do in your relationship is foreplay. No matter where you're starting from, you too have the potential to create loving and beautiful sex with your partner. So enjoy!

A: As therapists and researchers, we are tired of seeing people constantly come up short of satisfaction in their sex lives. Unfortunately, there are very few research-based tools out there for people who are trying to improve their romance, passion and sex with one another. The short answer is we wanted to do something about that. In this presentation we are really interested in helping couples with their everyday relationships; that is, helping them enjoy all aspects of their relationship, from conversations over coffee at breakfast to creating satisfying and romantic sex. Truth be told, we are more like plumbers than philosophers. Therefore, the tools that we offer you in this series are designed to be useful and practical.
Q: Will this product help those couples that have stopped having sex altogether?
A: Why do couples stop having sex in the first place? Usually the answer has to do with the fact that they have stopped communicating or have unprocessed conflicts or issues .Or they feel embarrassed, or rejected or undesired by their partner. Gott Sex will give you tools to help you in taking the first steps toward fixing these problems.
Q: Is Gott Sex? a valuable resource for couples dealing with the issue of porn addiction?
A: Good question, and yes! At the heart of the Gott Sex? Series is the idea that couples in committed relationships should have personal, loving sex, not impersonal pornographic sex. And once you've had personal loving sex with your partner, we think you'll agree with us that it is much more exciting and fun than impersonal sex ever was. Learning how to make sex personal, and to re-ignite the passion, is all part of our program.
