Can Christians Practice Tantra?

Can Christians practice Tantra? Dave Hutchison says that Christians not only can practice Tantra, but should. By excluding the Hindu ideas, Tantra can help integrate positive sexuality with Christianity.

Our Sexually Immature Culture

Our society is full of tease, titillation and men taught to look at women as sex objects. We have no meaningful intimacy education and never will until we drop the false sexual repressiveness of religion used for controlling people and reorient ourselves towards loving sexual fulfilment.

We are not born naturally good at sex and we have little or no training in sexuality other than by hit and miss experimentation. We are largely conditioned by a belief system that often instills guilt, fear, insecurity or shame in our sexuality. We need to take back sexuality and integrate it with our spirits in a way that results in much more love, intimacy and fulfilment than what our culture has taught us.
