Best selling American romance novelist Nora Roberts was the first to be inducted in the Romance Writers of America Hall of Fame. With over 100 books to her credit, it’s safe to say she lives and breathes the essence of the Love Zone.

When first we meet our sweetheart, the hormones are flying, the connection leaping beyond the rational mind. We swoon, we fantasize that this ideal ‘other’ will make our dreams come true. Then reality sets in, and our life together moves into the realm of careers, family, bills, lawn mowing, getting the oil changed-- unromantic, but necessary pursuits. So, how can onewe re-kindle the tantalizing spark that first drew us to our partner?  What will help us remember who we are with, and why we are with them?

 The Love Zone plants seeds to help participants nourish and grow the relationship which can be a sensual garden of Earthly delights.  When you hear the word ‘sensual’, chances are the word ‘sexual’ echoes in your ears as well. Yes, they can go hand in hand; however, I view sensuality as engaging with the whole world wide open, full out, drinking it all in, not missing a drop. 

When we newly enter the world, we explore our environment with every part of our bodies. We touch, taste, see, smell and hear it all. If you have ever watched small children, you observe their delight with putting things in their mouths. They crawl around in the grass, not caring if they get their knees dirty. They eat with their fingers; the messier the better. They make silly sounds, not giving a hoot who hears them. When was the last time you immersed yourself in life that way?

 Now back to the other ‘s’ word: sexuality. When we are in our budding stages, we feel full of vitality and get-up-and-go. For many people over 50, libido sometimes flags. That can be attributed to physical illness, medication, depression or surgery. It doesn’t have to remain so.  You can enjoy the company of a loving partner by allowing your senses to be fully enlivened by their presence. Drink them in, as you would the beauty of flower. Touching, caressing, nibbling even... explore this person as you would a fine sculpture. Whether or not you have a partner, you can still enjoy treating yourself deliciously. Dress in clothing that flows across your skin, take hot bubble baths, savor every sensation you encounter. 

Bodies change, energy ebbs and flows. I have a friend who calls the aging process ‘ripening’. If you are over 50, you have now reached a state of maturity and wisdom. You know what you enjoy, and what you don’t. Hopefully you are able to communicate that to a partner about what feels beyond the beyond, and what you can do without.

One key to emotionally healthy sexual interaction is being able to express likes and dislikes and not settling for less, regardless of age or stage of development in your relationship.  I remember reading a line in a book in which a younger man had an older woman as a lover. He asked her how she was able to entice him so with her touch. She replied something like: “I’ve had world enough and time.” Gives me goose bumps just reading it.

So, I invite you to soar into the Love Zone, senses fully enlivened! You will be reading articles that highlight communication, Tantra, partner yoga, healthy touch, dating, and living juicy in or out of relationship. So, I invite you to lower the lights, illumine the room with a beautifully.
