Susan gives us the Platinum Rule. This is a step up from the Golden Rule. 

She even provides a real life example of the Platinum Rule in action.

When You Tripped Up

Well into her 40’s, Susan had not had an orgasm from intercourse. 

What changed this and had her finally feel like a whole sexual being. Plus having her feel her creativity and her life force surging in her like never before, was an expanded orgasm practice.

She even learned to love her imperfect body from this practice, and connected with her husband at a much deeper level than ever before. It was like night and day for both of them.

Listen now to hear Susan explain what an expanded orgasm practice is.

What is the best partnership / relationship advice you have ever received?


Once she and her husband started telling the truth to each other, their relationship became so much more interesting.

Payoff of Partnership

Agreements help people have hotter, sexier relationships.

Everyday a woman is in a different hormonal balance. Women are run by their hormones.

Most women are afraid to give their man sexual feedback because they don’t want to hurt his ego. The way to let this go is to report in from your animal about what is giving you pleasure today.

You don’t have to know what you want, but you commit to speaking up when something isn’t it. And you speak up so your partner can adjust. This is the agreement. 

Tell them what your body is telling you. It has nothing to do with your partner.

When you tell him this, you don’t use your manners. When you use your manners you go from your animal to your rational brain and you can no longer be orgasmic in that way.

He will be thankful for this information. There is no failure. There is only feedback.
