In the Tantric pantheon of characters, the primary god is Shiva, and the primary goddess is Shakti. They stand as principles rather than religious icons, representing the female and male, or Yin and Yang. Their dance of partnership keeps the universe in balance, and they bring the same metaphor to modern couples.
In our sexual lives, the Shakti energy of passion and creativity comes forth in positions that put the woman on top and in control of the action. These "woman superior" positions are excellent for G-spot stimulation and enable a more powerful sexual response from many women, who can subtly move their bodies to angle the pelvis and yoni (Sanskrit for "vagina") for maximum stimulation.

Suzie Heumann, founder of Tantra.com, says that Shakti energy comes forth in positions that put the woman on top and in control of the action. Additionally, the "woman superior" Tantric sex position is comfortable, makes a woman feel seductive and sensual, and all but guarantees her a satisfying climax.

Tao Semko of UmaaTantra.com reveals a simple breathing technique that will re-sensualize your whole body.
... So how do you burn up that stress hormone, relax your body, and enjoy life and sex again? Two ways... the first is to go along with your body's urge for fight or flight (ie physical exercise), so that your body releases endorphins that suppress the further release of stress hormones. This also can release testosterone, which increases sexual arousal in both sexes.
The second way, which allows both men and women to *enjoy* sex more, and have better orgasms, is by re-awakening the sensory nerves in the skin and muscles through special breathing, sensory awareness, and relaxation. Together, these three tell the body, "the danger is over, go back to your normal state."
The fastest way to hit this natural "reset button" is by changing your breathing. Any deep diaphragmic breathing will begin to relax you. Stressed breathing is rapid chest breathing. Slow down the breath and breath with your belly and lower back like a baby, and your half way there. Read more

According to the philosophy of Tantra, the entire universe is a manifestation of pure consciousness. In manifesting the universe, this pure consciousness seems to become divided into two poles or aspects, neither of which can exist without the other.

Some people study Tantra in the hopes of gaining occult powers or siddhis and wind up disappointed when their teacher won't - or more likely can't - teach them how to acquire them. If you are willing to devote some time and effort to the practice, Sodarshan Chakra Kriya is a pranayama that bestows psychic powers, says Anmol Mehta.
Background: Sodarshan Chakra Kriya (set) was taught to me by my Kundalini Yoga teacher Ravi Singh who studied it under the guidance of Yogi Bhajan. It dates back a few thousand years and is reputed among all the known Yogas, including Kundalini Yoga, to be the most powerful Pranayama exercise there is. You will notice that it is called a kriya, although a kriya typically is a complete set of asanas and yogic exercises (see Introduction to Kundalini Yoga for more information on kriyas and how Kundalini Yoga works in general), it also applies in some cases to a single exercise, which is very complete in and of itself. Sodarshan Chakra Kriya is a pranayama exercise that is exactly that, very complete and also very powerful.
Benefits of Sodharshan Chakra Kriya: The superlatives describing Sodarshan Chakra Kriya are lavish to say the least. In Yoga terms it will give you Nao Niddhi (the nine precious virtues) and Artha Siddhi (the 18 occult powers). Read more

Tantric sex is not about naked bodies bumping against each other, says FOXSexpert Yvonne K. Fulbright, but comes from a soulful energy.
You are a constant source of pulsating, vibrant sexual energy. According to Tantric belief, when you get high on the charged realization that you are a living, breathing power source, you become more sensitive to the energy inside and all around you.
It is then that you’re able to connect to the more enlightened parts of your being that make for a Tantric sex experience. Your next quest may have to be finding your supernatural self. Read more

Does Tantric orgasm really exist? Not only does it exist (though it may not be what you imagined it was), but Maya Silverman guides you through the steps of reaching one.
Tantric Orgasm, tantra, tantric sexuality all conjure up images of the weird and wonderful, elastic limbed lovers, non-stop indulgence. Fortunately this is a misunderstanding of the Tantric Orgasm and Tantra as a whole.
Tantra refers to'expansion' of the conscienceness, and tantric sexuality and tantric sensuality refers to rituals, massage and practices which focus the mind, heighten the senses, deepen intimacy, increases pleasure, stregthens the intensity of orgasm, boost multi-orgasmic potential, and promotes mind shattering bliss. Sexual energy is awakened and channeled throughout the body.
The tantric orgasm is a subset of this powerful experience, a mini-supernova which forms the foundations for this divine experience.
Ok now how to get some of that divine juice? Read more
