How you perceive your own body plays an important part in achieving sexual satisfaction.  If you don’t feel good about your body how can you feel sexy?   If you don’t feel sexy how can you enjoy sex?

I know women who are have the most amazing sex lives and they do not have great bodies. They are making a conscious choice not to focus on their flaws.  The  stretch marks, the flabby belly, and the wing bat arms, are not going to interfere with their sexual enjoyment.     

Loving acceptance of who you are is a process that can begin with re-focusing on small things that you like about yourself.  The key is turning down the volume on your own self judgments.   It’s these negative, critical voices playing in your head, that stifle pleasure of any kind.  And, in the bedroom, that are particularly deadly.  

Women have to be less concerned about what they imagine their sexual partners are thinking and more about how they want to feel. 

 Believe me, men are not half as critical about your body as you are.  Most of them care far less about how their partner looks and much more about creating an intimate connection.It’s not easy for women to overcome the strong societal forces telling us to look and act a certain way. However, we have to make that a priority – our happiness depends on it. 

The Real Cougar Woman is a 5-carat diamond who knows the importance of taking care of her health, beauty, relationships, finances and spirituality.  Linda Franklin says,”there is no stopping a woman who has a strong belief system, passion and a dream. All things are possible”. Linda’s book, Don’t Ever Call Me Ma’am helps women of all ages tap into their power and live life to the fullest.
