Body Scan to Integrate Arousal

This short clip is from a two-hour healthy porn watching session. Halfway through his session, Jack turns away from the porn to practice what is called a body scan. This practice involves noticing sensations within his body from head to toe. As he does this, he names various body parts and sensations which culminate in his feeling a sense of wholeness. “It’s really a whole orchestra of body parts playing together,” he says. During his body scan, he also notices places in his body where he is not feeling aroused – areas he describes as “dropping out.” He then attempts to “fold” those places back into his arousal. You can see the entire 25-minute body scan in the Integrating Arousal class.
