Polyamory: The Next Sexual Revolution

Tantra is an ancient high art form that means "weave." With Tantra you learn to master and weave energy in yourself and between you and your lovers. In polyamory - loving more than one person in an honest and intimate relationship - you balance energy between two or among more than two lovers. While Tantra and polyamory are paths that each may be practiced by themselves, they go together like two peas in pod.
Terisa Greenan and her boyfriend, Matt, are enjoying a rare day of Seattle sun, sharing a beet carpaccio on the patio of a local restaurant. Matt holds Terisa's hand, as his 6-year-old son squeezes in between the couple to give Terisa a kiss. His mother, Vera, looks over and smiles; she's there with her boyfriend, Larry. Suddenly it starts to rain, and the group must move inside. In the process, they rearrange themselves: Matt's hand touches Vera's leg. Terisa gives Larry a kiss. The child, seemingly unconcerned, puts his arms around his mother and digs into his meal.

Terisa and Matt and Vera and Larry—along with Scott, who's also at this dinner—are not swingers, per se; they aren't pursuing casual sex. Nor are they polygamists of the sort portrayed on HBO's Big Love; they aren't religious, and they don't have multiple wives. But they do believe in "ethical nonmonogamy," or engaging in loving, intimate relationships with more than one person—based upon the knowledge and consent of everyone involved. They are polyamorous, to use the term of art applied to multiple-partner families like theirs, and they wouldn't want to live any other way. Read more

Switch on Disease-Fighting Genes with Yoga and Meditation.

New scientific research now proves what the yogis have always known: deep relaxation can have a profound effect on a wide range of medical conditions.
It's a piece of advice that yogis have given for thousands of years: take a deep breath and relax. Watch the tension melt from your muscles and all your niggling worries vanish. Somehow we all know that relaxation is good for us. Now the hard science has caught up – for a comprehensive scientific study showing that deep relaxation changes our bodies on a genetic level has just been published.

What researchers at Harvard Medical School discovered is that, in long-term practitioners of relaxation methods such as yoga and meditation, far more "disease-fighting genes" were active, compared to those who practised no form of relaxation.

In particular, they found genes that protect from disorders such as pain, infertility, high blood pressure and even rheumatoid arthritis were switched on. Read more

A Beginner's Taste of Tantric Sex

Julie Peasgood, author of The Greatest Sex Tips in the World, says that she has acquired a new found respect for Tantric sex.
My previous misconceptions of Tantric sex involving marathon coupling sessions that only Sting has time for, have given way to a new found respect. This is an ancient Indian practice that promises increased energy.

Tantric sex also helps provide a sense of well-being and greater intimacy for couples - physically, emotionally and spiritually.

Tantra believes sex is a life force and a route to heightened awareness. The secret lies in relaxation and physical sensitivity, rather than just seeking sensation and stimulation. Read more

Does the Venus Butterfly Guarantee an Orgasm?

The Venus Butterfly is supposed to guarantee a woman an orgasm and to increase both physical and spiritual closeness between partners. At least, this the promise, but does the technique actually work in practice?
The Venus Butterfly. It made its debut on TV legal drama LA Law, when— during the 1986 Thanksgiving episode—script writers Steven Bochco and Terry Louise Fisher referred to a mysterious sex technique that guarantees a woman endless, repeated climaxes. The day after Thanksgiving the media was buzzing with talk of the trick, and every loving couple across the nation was wondering how to do it. But hey, it's just an urban myth, right?

Maybe... maybe not. Ever since that fateful day, sexologists, therapists and writers have made attempted to define this holy grail of sex acts. So does it exist? And if so, does it work? Read more

What's the Best Method of Penis Enlargement?

To some people, especially many women, penis enlargement may seem to be a solution is search of a problem. Penis size is only one of several factors contributing to sexual satisfaction for women and is almost never the most important one.

Yet, after over two years online, my post 6 Penetrating Positions for a Small Penis still consistently ranks as one of my top posts. I also regularly get emails from men concerned about their penis size. Often, they ask what the correct way to measure a penis is. They seem to hope that their own measurements were done incorrectly and that there is another way to measure which will reveal that they are actually average-sized or even large compared to other men.

Frankly, as a woman I'm sometimes tempted to tell these men to grow up and get over it, but I know that really isn't fair and certainly isn't an answer to their perceived problem. Many women are just as self-conscious about their breast size as any man is about his penis size and just as convinced that all their relationship problems would be solved if they only had bigger breasts.

Many women choose to have breast augmentation surgery done to increase their breast size. Is there a safe and effective method to enlarge the penis? Svetlana Ivanova discusses natural penis enlargement and reveals why she's convinced that penis enlargement exercises may be the answer for some men:
... Does natural penis enlargement really work? I can't speak directly from personal experience, lacking the equipment to do so. However, I know that penis enlargement exercises work for at least some men because a former lover – after I commented of the size of his penis – confessed that he had used them to increase his penis size an inch and a half. I can't think of any possible reason for a man to say that unless it were true. Read more

The Power of Eye Gazing

One of Tantra Gal's tips of the day is about the power of eye gazing. I completely agree that it's a simple practice that can bring you to enlightenment all by itself.
I have been practicing eye gazing a lot lately. Yesterday I did a session for an hour. I have been practicing with both men and women. Each experience has been beautiful and profound. This simple practice cuts though all illusion and opens the doors to Truth. If this was the only Tantric practice you ever did I believe you could reach enlightenment. While it is usually done with a partner it can also be done solo in a mirror. I discovered the mirror gazing when I was 13. Give it a try and let me know what you discover. Read more

Vajroli Tantric Yoga Technique for Sex Chakra

Yoga teacher Anmol Mehta details the benefits of Vajroli, a Tantric yoga technique to awaken the sex chakra, providing step-by-step instructions on how to practice it and some practical hints and tips for it.
Kundalini tantra yoga practice is essentially the high art of awakening the chakras to promote rapid spiritual advancement and personal mastery. It is is a misunderstanding to think of tantra yoga as just sexual yoga. Although there is an entire segment of this science dedicated to the use of sex as a means of awakening kundalini to accelerate spiritual evolution, tantra yoga is much more than just that. In fact, Kundalini Yoga (Hindu or Sikh versions) is actually Kundalini Tantra Yoga, and is essentially the use of tantric techniques to purify the body, balance the chakras and awaken kundalini.

The Tantra Yoga technique that I will detail today, is an example of a tantric technique which falls into the subcategory of sexual tantra, but as you will see, it is consistent with the overall aim of tantra yoga practice, which is to purify and balance the chakra system. If you are not familiar with chakras, you can first read the following article: Kundalini Yoga Seven Chakra System Overview.

Previously I have detailed a very powerful tantic technique, which when practiced sincerely and consistently, helps you raise the vibration of your sexual energy and helps you master your sexual dimension. You can read the details of that technique in the article: Ultimate Tantric Yoga Technique to Raise Sexual Energy - Sat Kriya. The practice I will detail today, is more subtle than Sat Kriya, but it is also an excellent tantric technique to help you harness and master your sexual energies. This technique is called Vajroli Mudra, and it is a fundamental part of tantra yoga practice. Read more
