Expert’s Perspective

Kate Moyle, The Thought House

To sleep and lie next to and close to someone is an intimate act, but one we don’t often give the attention it deserves. Priya Tourkow, a Couples and Relationship Therapist invites you to be mindful and in the moment together, aware of your bodies as individuals, and then as a couple. There is no pressure to do anything other than just be, and be present.”

Couple’s Feedback

“Sometimes, after many years of being in the same relationship, you tend to gravitate to the ‘tried and true.’ Pillow reminds you that there are still new things to experience with your partner. It brings you back to dating again.”

“I just wanted to say that I think you guys are doing an immense amount of good in the world, especially in a space dominated by tasteless immediacy. You have a major fan in me!”
