Paralympian Dylan Alcott’s sexologist girlfriend Chantelle Otten has lifted the lid on one of the most important elements of lovemaking.
Write an article for Body and soul magazine this Sunday, the Melbourne-based scientist, 30, emphasized the importance of treating sex as a playful, holistic experience.
“Pleasure is about communicating with your sexual partners, falling into the sexual experience, being present, relaxing, trusting the person you are with, interacting with each other and seeing sex as something beyond penetration and orgasm,” she explained.

One way to enhance the bedroom experience, according to Chantelle, is to focus on the erogenous zones — a term that defines areas of the most sensitive parts of the body.
While any part of the body can technically be an erogenous zone, Chantelle revealed that there is one part that always reigns supreme: the brain.
‘If [the brain is] not in the mood because we struggle to be present — when we’re fatigued, irritable, etc. — the brain can block the rest of our body’s ability to respond to arousal,” she wrote.

Chantelle, who is releasing a book on Tuesday called The Sex Ed You Never Had, said many people forget the importance of a person’s mindset when it comes to sex because they are too focused on “physical arousal.”
“The more you can focus on being mindful and present during your erotic experiences, the better it will be in the bedroom,” she advised.
Chantelle went on to list other erogenous zones, including ears, lips, the nape, lower back, and nape.
