'Sex, Love and Goop': Will Felicitas and Rama revive the chemistry in their marriage?
'Sex, Love and Goop' is a new sex show on Netflix - Oscar-winner and entrepreneur Gwyneth Paltrow is an executive producer. The show focuses on the sex lives, intimacy issues, and lost chemistry of people from varying age groups, races, and sexual identities.
In the second episode of 'Sex, Love, and Goop', expert Michaela Boehm suggests techniques so that Felicitas and Rama can work with their bodies in a way that they can interact with one another, engaging both their spots of softness and strengths.

One rather interesting observation made by Michaela is that the couple shares the kind of dynamic of a little boy/overcritical mother type. And so, the duo sought help from Boehm in order to learn how to redefine themselves as a husband and wife by playing in the erotic world.
Some techniques that Michaela suggests are Rama blindfolding Felicitas, in a way that excites her entire body, leaving him free to move around as he wishes. Felicitas responds with positive feedback and likes the tension and excitement that Rama has to offer with his touch and movements around her body.
In Michaela's experience in working with very ingrained relationship dynamics, she thinks it's useful to give names to trigger the ability to enter their sexual personas. If traditionally speaking, it's a given that there has to be an attraction (in some cases, almost instant) between the two partners in a way that sparks that sexual action. This is also called sexual polarity or erotical friction when there's a seeming tension between the two (an expression for "opposites attract").
Another technique Beohm suggests is the sensitivity-building exercise, which works to transmit energies to one another; blindfolds on, palms touching, synchronize hand movements along with the breath. Since her observation is that the couple is heady and intellectually oriented people, when their sight is taken away, the thinking tends to subside. This exercise further amplifies the erotic attraction. The leading and following movements of the exercise helps to wire the body to learn the principles of that erotic function, in a short course of time.
