In simplest terms, karezza is affectionate, sensual intercourse without the goal of climax," the Daily Telegraph quoted Robinson as saying.
Karezza, and practices like it, can shift that focus to the connection instead of couples constantly chasing the orgasm," Dr Morrisse added.
Robinson noted that karezza has been found to keep the romance alive between couples when the honeymoon period or new relationship high inevitably dissipates after a few years.
Based on the Italian word for caress, Karezza involves stimulating the partner to feel intense pleasure but stopping short of the orgasmic tickly bit.
Many couples are finding that the technique of karezza has helped heal their marriages, inject more spark into their sex lives, shed porn addiction, and even cure sexual dysfunction.
Lauded by doctors and American's alike, karezza is beginning to be seen as a natural alternative to Viagra, and possibly a cure for sexual dysfunction, or lack of desire, in women.
Deb Feintech, a counsellor from Portland, Maine, says she often uses karezza to help couples repair their broken relationships.
