Slow Pleasure is a practical and philosophical exploration of pleasure, teaching you how to claim, prioritise and integrate pleasure into your daily life. We live in a world of breakneck speed. It can be intimidating and nearly impossible to slow down. In this crisis of pace, we are often disembodied, disconnected, and forget that we even live in a body!
In this beautiful book, pleasure coach and educator Euphemia Russell (they/them) teaches us that, despite our collective challenges, we can cultivate pleasure and connection. Starting with the philosophy of pleasure, Euphemia deepens your understanding and then helps you interrogate what is impeding your ability to feel the whole pleasure spectrum. Slow Pleasure will help you establish a pleasure practice of your own, expand your pleasure dial, help you understand your desires and teach you how to continue to explore the depths and boundaries of your pleasure.
Woven throughout the book are reflection questions and pleasure practices that bring you back into your body, make you slow down to listen to yourself, and help you consciously begin to prioritise your pleasure. Slow Pleasure teaches us that pleasure goes way beyond sex and should be cultivated and celebrated in every moment.
