Pleasure mapping can be done independently & teaches individuals how to love up on their own bodies the way we are. Learning about our bodies in this way helps to improve our body image, self worth & body awareness. A Pleasure Mapping practice can help us improve the relationship with ourselves. Practicing pleasure mapping with partner/s can help them improve their body image, self worth and increase their body awareness, too.
