Can sex still be satisfying without achieving an orgasm? According to the many people who engage in Karezza sex, it can be. The benefits of this nonorgasmic sexual experience are touted in a recent article. Karezza sex does not involve climax, for either partner, but emphasizes closeness, intimacy, and as its Italian name implies, caressing. This unconventional idea of having sex without reaching an orgasm is gaining popularity with couples everywhere. Deb Feintech, a counselor who was recently interviewed about Karezza, explains that she chooses it for couples who come to her complaining of stagnant relationships. She insists that contrary to what people believe, not all men concern themselves with climax. In fact, her male clients are some of the most outspoken advocates of Karezza. “It’s very radical for them, but they are finding the emotional intimacy far outweighs any of the thrill of the chase and the mating mind,” said Feintech.
In this modern sexual world of instant gratification, oils, pills, and never-ending erections, Karezza is a refreshing approach to sexual satisfaction. The intimate and deep emotional connection that is achieved without orgasm is unique to this type of sexual encounter and not often found in traditional sex. Couples struggling with impotence or sexual boredom may find Karezza an exciting and rewarding alternative to the sexual practices they are used to. Allowing the body to feel the sensations on a whole new level can ratchet up the sexual satisfaction in the relationship. Sexual and relationship experts encourage couples to explore new avenues of intimacy in order to grow and nurture their relationships. They warn, however, that Karezza is not for everyone. People looking to achieve an orgasm or have their partner do so may be disappointed with this type of interaction, because ideally, neither partner ever reaches climax. But for those looking to add a new layer of sexual experience to their relationship, Karezza might be just what they are looking for.
