TV For Whatever Turns You On
Claudia: We have been together for almost 20 years.
Jim: May be there’s something we’re missing that we need to bring back into our lives.
Claudia: Kind of feels like we’re in this rot. You know we don’t have any time to spend with each other.
Jim: Mama Gena may be you can help us.

Mama Gena’s Pleasure Emergency
“Turn Up the Heat”
Regena: You know Jim and Claudia, you have to be a genius to create a great marriage that starts good and gets better and better and better in the 21st Century with all the pressures and the kids and job and everything that you have to juggle. And what we’re going to do is teach you how to pull each other back onto the dance floor of life and create islands of pleasure to remind you of that delicious chemistry that I see between you 2 and I want you to see it too. You ready?
So you think you're some challenges together, some challenges in the marriage don’t you?
Claudia: Oh yes.
Regena: You're not. You're not, you're not, you're just having a pleasure emergency.
Marriage right now is very, very different than it was for our parents or our grandparents. Nowadays, with the necessity pulled out of the gig, what’s the reason to be together? Pleasure.
You want to have a relationship that’s fun. Do you have a night of the week that’s date night?
Regena: Very few couples do, I think it’s very, very important to put a stake in the ground that there is one night is only for you.
And then, what you have is there’s this little island of time that’s just for the 2 of you and then all week you’ve been flirt each other about the night. Then suddenly you’re sending each other little texts or little emails about the romantic sexy moment in your week. And it’s crucial to flirt with your spouse.
What if I gave an assignment that you're to kiss her on a different location of her body each day of the week, as you leave the house?
Claudia: I like that.
Regena: So, for example tomorrow morning, you could take her wrist and sort of, as a very sexy thing for a woman. Go ahead try and see if she likes it.
Regena: One of the greatest things that gets lost in our very busy life, is taking the time to appreciate each other. You know just turn in to one another and saying you rock and you're amazing and you still rock my world.
And I was wondering if it would be fun for you to write a letter of appreciation for each other. So, are you for that, you’ll do a little letter of appreciation?
Claudia: Sure, yes.
Jim: Dear Claudia, I want you to know that everyday is special with you. I think it would be great to treat ourselves, to try more ways to reconnect.
Regena: Thank you for letting me being me and giving me the time and space that I need. Thank you for being a wonderful person that you are after almost 20 years of marriage we’re still in our pretty good faith.
Regena: Now what are some things that you want Jim?
Jim: Though I think there’s something spontaneous, something that we still used to do may be. But a lot of times you plan those things and end up not happening.
Claudia: We don’t have that kind of time.
Regena: No, no, no, no, no, this is the pleasure revolution and what we have to do is we create spontaneity. You organize it, that’s all.
You know, I’m all about the quickie.
Claudia: That sounds good.
Regena: And even if what you did during that time is just to look into each other’s eyes and kiss, how luxurious is that, in the middle of the day.
A lovely day to—
Jim: Well you what, you're not tired.
Regena: Even though it’s not as spontaneous as you know your eyes made across a crowded room, I promise you, 1, 2 together and then candles are lit and the music is on, you will find something marvelous to do. And then you’ll go back office, they will be seeing your step where everyone will accuse you of having an affair. You can say, “Yes I am, with my wife.”
I know you love music, and so I thought I’d create for you a little musical surprise.
I think it’s here.
Regena: I brought you my secret weapon.
Claudia: Secret weapon?
Regena: This is him.
This is my ballroom dancing teacher, Alex Tchassov.
He was the start of mad hot ballroom and he is the best teacher of ballroom dance in the world.
Alex: Let’s try to have some fun. Jim, imagine if you are a Prime Minister. And you're working for her majesty Claudia.
And now, it’s time for Prime Minister to take her Majesty for nice walk in the park. Fox trot, very simple combination of steps I will put in in this particular formula.
Please, please, thank you, very simple.
If I will take my queen and we’ll just invite her walk with me, I’ll say, “Please, please and then thank you.” Could you try? And turn Regena.
Regena: Thank you.
Alex: Yes, very nice. Make sure, because that -- she’s always right, “Please, please,” very good. Thank you.
Invite her Majesty towards you, please, please, excellent. You see, all right you do in the basic fox trot.
Alex: I love to try with the music if you don’t mind.
Regena: I’ll get it.
Alex: Go, please, please, thank you. Come back, very nice. And see she’s happy. Please, please, thank you, very nice. A, a, thank you. B, b, b.
Regena: Alright, I have a suggestion for you. What I wanted to tell you is that, just take 1 year ago, I took my very first dance lesson with Alex. So I thought may be I would show you what it’s going to be like for you 2 when you’re ahead.
Would you like to see? Can I show you a little? We will take a little spin around.
Claudia: That would be great.
Jim: Sounds great.
Claudia: So good.
Claudia: So good, you were—
Regena: Thank you.
Claudia: You were great.
Jim: Very nice.
Claudia: You were so good. Wow, you did that in a year.
Regena: Yes, and that’s what practice does. Practice with dancing, practice with pleasure. If you practice you become an expert.
So do you feel like you're working with a really loaded pleasure deck with each other now with all these tools?
Jim: It was pretty good.
Claudia: I think so.
Regena: What if, the next 10, 20, 30, 40 years could be the hottest, juiciest, the most fiery and most outrageous? Don’t you think that would be fun? You know to become the legends of your community with this glorious marriage and the fantastic pleasure that you create with each. I think it’s a way to go.
Regena: Keep using the lens of pleasure to take yourselves higher.
Regena: And we’re going to hit the highway and dance into the sunset.
