Definition - What does Karezza mean?

Karezza is a sexual practice designed to improve intimacy between long term partners by encouraging intimate sexual experiences without orgasm. Removing the pressure of having to have an orgasm is said to help build stronger emotional bonds and create a greater sense of pleasure and satisfaction in the sexual relationship.

Kinkly explains Karezza

Karezza doesn't mean cutting sex short right before orgasm or engaging in foreplay without intercourse; it means exploring your partner’s body slowly and fully without worrying if they'll orgasm or not. Karezza is said to be helpful for those with erectile dysfunction because it removes the end goal of sex, allowing both partners to concentrate on each other's bodies and build deeper intimacy.
