A Thrilling Catalyst
It is a widely held belief that pleasure is a good thing and that the benefits of sex are many. Not only is sex highly regarded for perpetuating our species, but it is a universally positive experience for just about everyone who engages in it consensually. The multiple sensory stimulation of sex triggers a cavalcade of neural reactions and physiological conditions that culminate in a simultaneous burst of mental and physical pleasure. This sort of all-encapsulating ecstasy presents a myriad of benefits including reduced stress, improved intimacy, better sleep, pain relief, auxiliary exercise and a certain “glow” that makes people wonder what you have been up to.
Wine has the unique power to seduce on multiple levels, making it a natural catalyst in the dance of human courtship. Enjoying a glass of wine is relaxing, helping partners to reconnect and ease into a romantic mood. Meanwhile, specific visual, olfactory, savory and chemical reactions work in unison to increase pleasure, heighten desire and enhance intimacy. The symbolism of a bottle to be shared, the aromas that arouse, the flavors that awaken and the relaxation achieved are all elements operating in harmony — lubricated in unison by the wine itself.
