Results of the Sensuality Test
Your score = 73
The rest of the info.
Sensuality is to be acutely aware of what the senses perceive. This preoccupation or devotion to that which is smelled, touched, heard, tasted, and seen has some bearing on how one experiences life…and sex.
Studies have shown that people who are exceptionally sensual are very process-oriented. In life, this means enjoying the present moment and not always being hung up on the future or the past. What is going on around at the present moment is enough to capture the sensual individuals full attention. This is an excellent recipe for happiness. In matters of sex, being process-oriented means NOT being driven by the goal of orgasm. Instead it means enjoying sex for the experience itself, basking in the actual act and not driving to a climactic finish.
What does your score mean?
You seem to have found a balance between absolute asceticism and utter hedonism. You enjoy the titillation of the senses, but aren't driven to senseless ecstasy by the smell of a flower, the taste of rich chocolate cake with whipped cream, or the touch of a lover. You are able to appreciate and even lose yourself in the sights, smells, sounds, tastes, and feel of life. But you aren't totally pleasure-driven and you are able to keep your emotions balanced.
You are able to stay focused and to persevere, even though you might be trudging through a particularly dull or insipid period of life. Sometimes, it is necessary to relinquish an attachment to the physically divine in order to attain goals or to move ahead. Your ability to control your sensual side means that you aren't perpetually distracted by what you feel, see, hear, touch, and taste.
As far as sex goes, you enjoy the process of lingering lovemaking. During sex, the senses are more acute, and you drink in the touch, sight, sounds, and smell of your lover. There is always room to improve this tendency of yours, and your lover will certainly appreciate your devotion to the senses!
If you would like, you can intensify your sensual side by taking note of the present moment, by using your eyes, ears, nose, and fingertips to explore all of the stimuli that whirl around you at any given time. Remember to be careful not to indulge gluttonously on physical pleasures to your own detriment (careless sex, drugs, alcohol, or too much chocolate, etc.).
You only have one life and your senses are there to help you enjoy it. So get to it!
