Have you ever experienced a moment of sexual ecstasy? How did it make you feel? Exhilarated? Luminous? Deeply connected? Intense sexual experiences are one of our greatest sources of pleasure.
The practice of Tantra shows us how to reclaim the sexual intimacy that is our birthright. And through this most ancient of arts, we may discover new joys of the erotic and expand mere moments of sexual ecstasy into a lifetime of sexual bliss. At a time when the stresses, fears and distractions of daily life threaten so many relationships, the age-old practice of Tantra shows us how to open our hearts, our emotions and our sexuality.
What is Tantra?
Tantra (a Sanskrit word meaning "woven together") can be loosely defined as a system of Hindu yoga which worships the union of men and women. It is a set of teachings and practices that are specifically designed to help us feel more, to increase our awareness of our own energy and the energy around us. The path that Tantra uses to these ends is the exploration of sexual energy.
One goal of Tantric sex is to expand your orgasms from local genital sensations to whole body orgasms. These expanded orgasms are where you feel energy rushing up through your body and into the crown of your head.
Who is Tantric Sex Good For?
Sexual exploration is a basic human instinct and most of us will wander into the secret garden of less familiar sexual experiences to feed our erotic hunger. If you and your partner are looking for something new, Tantric sex could be the ideal adventure.
Many of the teachings are about desire and the experience of sexual energy. Unlike western approaches to improving your sex life, Tantra teachings do not focus on external evaluations of what our body looks like, what kind of car we drive, how we wear our hair. In this way, Tantric sex teaching are open to anyone who is interested in exploring a new path to sexual fulfillment.
How Tantric Sex Works
In Tantric sex, the point of sex is not orgasm; the point is to feel. There is no clear cut beginning, middle, or end. Most of the exercises related to Tantric sex involve slowing things down, trying not to focus on our external body, or orgasm, or anything outside of our experience of the moment.
A heterosexual couple practicing Tantric intercourse seeks to prolong their sexual arousal. Following slow sensual touching, a couple might move to having very slow intercourse. The man might place his penis just an inch or so inside his partner's vagina and without thrusting allow it to remain in this position for a full minute. Then he may gently withdraw from her vagina and rest his penis softly on her clitoral area.
Usually the clitoris is the most sensitive part of a female's genitals, and it is located just above the vaginal opening. After resting in this position for another minute, the couple may decide to have him again slide his penis back in.
During subsequent cycles of resting and entering the vagina, the male would rest outside the vagina and then eventually rest just inside the vagina. During the rest times, the couple might just lie silently together, or gently caress each other as they focus on the experience of their union. Throughout this experience, both partners may be highly aroused, hovering close to the point of reaching orgasm on several occasions.
Tantric Sex Improves Sexual Health
Tantric sex has a rejuvenating effect, improving both men's and women's sexual health. Frequent orgasms, as one of the brain wave stimulations, will alter body chemistry. Depression, and stress disappear. Women's sexual health is greatly improved. Headaches, menstrual cramps, urinary-tract problems, weak immune function, incontinence, etc. virtually become a thing of the past.
In Tantric sex, the brain chemistry is affected by empowering the endocrine glands for more HGH, serotonin, DHEA, and testosterone. Scientific and medical studies prove that sexual health improves drastically - stimulating blood circulation, detoxifying the body through the breath, strengthening the cardioiovascular, endocrine/immune, and nervous functions, leading to improved sexual health, rejuvenation, and longevity.
