Reading to Each Other
Book reading is a ritual that, for the couples that practice it, creates a new level of intimacy and union. Each night before you go to bed, arrange to tuck under the covers at least a half hour before you intend to go to sleep, and grab a book. Take turns reading to each other. One night you could read and the next night your partner read to you. Alternatively, you can each take 15 minute turns. Either way each night you'll be sure to welcome the resonance of your partner's voice as you cuddle together.
But what should you read? For couples hoping to gain a little more sensual intimacy, stories with erotic subject matter may be your best bet. For couples just looking to increase their togetherness, books by your favorite authors or current bestsellers may be perfect for you. Another fun way to choose your books is to take turns. The first book your partner chooses; the next book you choose.
To get you started, here are a few suggestions of books you may enjoy reading together. Have fun and sweet dreams!

The Empress' New Clothes by Jaid Black
Quote from Amazon.com Reviewer: "Sexually, this book is not for the timid. It is honest and direct without all the purple prose that can get so silly you laugh out loud during "the" crucial scenes. Sometimes it is down right inspirational! You and your significant other will reap the benefits."
Blue: The Color of Desire by Patrick Linney (Extremely Racy)
Book Description: "Blue, visit me on Thursday, with a story or a poem written somewhere on your body. Don't knock. Enter at ten o'clock in the morning. There is a kind of vestibule. Take off your clothes, put on the blindfold you'll find on a hook, and wait. Blue, if we begin this, it may be impossible to end. So if you don't visit me, I shall understand." Blue visits. Enters.
