Pleasure Map

What is a Pleasure Map? Pleasure mapping is the intentional practice of mapping how & where on your body you enjoy being touched. It invites the opportunity to honor likes & dislikes with yourself or a partner. This map also provides a space to set boundaries and discuss required care. You can create different maps for different situations & partners. Print or screen shot to create your own! Just click on the image to enlarge and screenshot or download.

If working with this map is not accessible to you, try making a list of your likes and disliked, curiosities & needs. Anything that helps you identify & share your desires & boundaries can be a Pleasure Map!
