Feel it where it counts

Want to get revved up before foreplay? Try this solo technique to get in the mood: Lie on your back with your hand on your abdomen while taking deep breaths through your nostrils. (You should feel your hand rise as you bring air into your belly and fall as you exhale.) When you’re totally relaxed, start to imagine that with each inhale you’re drawing the breath down into your genitals, awakening the area and infusing it with energy. “This type of deep breathing will actually increase the flow of blood to your genitals, intensifying your state of arousal and pleasure,” Dr. Bartlik says.
