Double Penetration: A Path to Enlightenment

Tantra teacher Janet Kira Lessin reveals how double penetration can be a path to enlightenment.
When you experience, as I did, two or more of your male poly lovers simultaneous entering you in tantric oneness, you open your inner stargate, touch the face of God and remember your source. As you embrace two or even three magic wands, the lingams (as we call penises) with your most sensitive inner sensual shrines, you feel ecstasy, get total personal and transpersonal recall. You drop concepts of physics, science and religion and instead zoom, as your multidimensional self, through space and time. You and the beloveds entering you merge with divinity, source of all inchoate forms. Home, you experience everything everyone told you as illusion and, at the same time, truth. Read more

Mantra to Open Up Blockages in Your Life

If you have a situation in your life that you can't seem to move on from, Yogi Bhajan said a certain mantra could open up the blockage.
One day Yogi Bhajan told his students, "Now suppose something happens in your life which you want to move and it's not moving. There is a block which you want to move, and it's not moveable. Then chant, ‘Aad Such, Jugaad Such, Hai Bhay Such, Nanak Hosee Bhay Such.' It's a lever. It is the biggest lever available to you among mantras.” Read more

10 Weird Seduction Tips for Men from the Kama Sutra

 The Kama Sutra isn't just a manual of sex positions. Among other things, it also explains how to seduce someone.
Most people think of the Kama Sutra as a guide of sexual positions, and although there is a portion that goes into great detail about sex positions, that's not all of the information it provides. The Kama Sutra also explains how to seduce someone and what a successful marriage looks like. Some of it is sound advice, but other parts of it are pretty wacky. We decided to gather 10 weird rules of seduction from the Kama Sutra.

Like most ancient texts there are different set rules for each gender. So let's start off with the weird seduction rules for men, according to the Kama Sutra: Read more

4 Tantric Sex Positions for Better Sex

Many couples are intrigued with Tantric sex, but some do not feel ready to try the intimacy exercises often suggested as an introduction to Tantra. An alternative introduction is Tantric sex positions. Tantric sex is a practice used to help prolong the act of sex and share orgasmic experiences with a partner. Tantric sex positions have been shown to enhance sexual pleasure and orgasm. Many Tantric sex positions are found in the Kama Sutra, although the Kama Sutra is not actually a Tantric book. The following four positions do not require any sexual acrobatics, but do provide sensual sensations for both partners.

Gratitude Helps People Create New Relationships

A new study has found that expressing gratitude helps people create new relationships.
A new study from the University of New South Wales has found that expressing gratitude to new acquaintances will earn you friends. The study was put together to explore a theory that suggests that gratitude helps people create new relationships, build on the ones they already have, and help to maintain both. In an effort to test the “new relationships” aspect of that theory, researchers studied 70 university students who gave advice to younger peers. The students were told that they were mentoring high school students and critique their university admissions essays. Afterwards, the mentors received handwritten notes from their faux mentees, and only about half of those notes included an expression of thanks for assisting them with their essays. The mentors who were thanked were more likely to give the younger students their contact information and presumably continue the friendship. The mentors also reported warmer personalities when it came to the grateful mentees, and that warmth is probably why grateful people make lots of friends. Read more

The Single Biggest Factor That Determines the Success of a Romantic Relationship

Erwan Davon reveals the single biggest factor that determines the success of a romantic relationship.
What is the single biggest factor that determines the success of a romantic relationship? We all know that most romantic relationships don't last as long as they could. Most of us have done our share of dating, and there's nothing wrong with that. In fact, this can be fun, so long as this is what we want. But what about when we want a lasting relationship? When we want that special person to become a soulmate and partner? That's a different ball game -- the kind of relationship most of us want in the end. My wife Alicia and I call it the "Eternal Date" -- a relationship that reaches higher and higher peaks of intimacy and sexual attraction. A relationship with soul that also has the sexy! Read more

Yoga for Premature Ejaculation

Premature ejaculation is completely a natural occurrence. Most men suffer from the problem at some point. However, premature ejaculation can limit a man's practice of Tantric sex, which involves sustaining lovemaking long enough to build sexual energy to a high level. Desensitizing creams and methods defeat the entire purpose of Tantric sex, which is to enjoy the pleasurable sensations of lovemaking. Yoga is a natural way to develop the body's ability to control ejaculation. The sex yoga poses in this routine can tone your urogenital area, strengthen your pelvic floor muscles and stimulate your prostate gland.

The Practice of Tantra Mantras

If you have heard of mantras in Tantra, but are not sure of what they are or why they are used, this brief introduction to the practice of Tantra mantras should clear things up.

Mantra means in Sanskrit language, 'liberation of the mind' referring to the techniques employed, known as Mantra Yoga. Mantra Yoga is according to the yoga tradition, a valid way to obtain liberation (Moksha) (see note 1). A widely accepted classification is to be of five kinds viz. Pinda, Kartari, Bija, Mantra and Mala. This classification takes into account the number of syllables, thus for the Bija Mantra there are three to nine syllables. Basically the tantric Mantras are Bija Mantras with some rare exceptions when the number of syllables could be more or less than the usual range. This article is mainly about Bija Mantras. Read more

What Type of Meditation Is Best for You?

Patricia Monaghan reveals how to find and stick with a meditation practice that meets your needs.
In 1902, the great American philosopher William James published a seminal book, Varieties of Religious Experience. Not himself religious, he asked a number of people what they meant by “religion.” Perhaps not surprisingly, he found that this common word had many meanings, ranging from piety to mysticism to saintliness.

In the same way, the term “meditation” has many possible meanings, from a state of deep relaxation conducive to better physical health, to a spiritual union with something beyond the human — with dozens of possibilities between. Read more

Tantric Bliss

Shanie Mathews says that Tantra can help physical and psychological health, as well as sexual intimacy.
Imagine feeling completely satisfied with your sexual experiences. It is great to not feel rushed because of the kids or work because the ultimate bliss of an orgasm stays with you for longer than the few seconds after sex. Now imagine that transcending into all others facets of life. It is possible with the practice of Tantra.

Tantra is more than having sex for multiple hours or a man extending the time before ejaculation. It is a practice that helps physical and psychological health, as well as sexual intimacy. It is more about truly loving yourself and allowing that love to flow into the relationship with your partner and beyond. Read more

Create Your Own Erotic Mandala

Mandalas are symbols used in Tantra. Here is how to make your own erotic mandala.
Magic circles, or mandala, are symbols that form part of the knowledge you need to access the magic of eroticism. According to Tantric philosophy, once upon a time, the gods found an unnamed energy that vibrated in a perfect way between the heavens and the earth. They called it mandala, which means circle or circuit in Hindu.

The Tao mandala: Ying and Yang
Reading and studying have allowed us to reveal the millenary secrets of sexual magic. All the mysteries have been interpreted and explained in a practical manner, as exercises to be carried out in a certain amount of time and in a simple way, with the aim of heightening our level of sexual and spiritual consciousness through the different techniques.

Mindfulness in Everyday Life: Embracing Your Sensuality

Clinical psychologist Donna Rockwell, PsyD, lists six steps to enhancing your sex life.
A couple of years ago, I presented a paper on mindfulness in China, touring some of that country's major cities. I was reminded of being a young girl growing up in New Jersey, digging a hole in my backyard with a kitchen spoon all the way through the earth to China. That was how I imagined getting there. Though traveling on an airplane instead of by spoon, I finally did find my way there.

Interestingly, among the local people I met and spoke with, what was most discussed -- without me asking -- was the same theme I hear repeated in this country, a bemoaned lack of sex education available to young couples, who say they want to start their lives together in a more fully engaged way, built upon a strong, sustaining relationship throughout their lives. But in China, as in most countries around the world, what is reportedly missing from people's education and life skills training are the very tools that would be most helpful in figuring out how to live a more successful, meaningful and happy life.

10 Tantric Sex Secrets for More Spiritual Sex

Why does it usually seem that our spiritual lives are so separate from our sex lives? Tantra developed as a way to weave every aspect of daily life, including sex, into the spiritual path. Rather than something that detracts from religious life, erotic experience is a prime opportunity for spiritual cultivation. The purpose of Tantric sex is to tap the energy that flows through the human body, increase and focus the energy through sexual union, and then use the energy as fuel for spiritual transformation.

The Shortcomings of Friction Sex

Victor Gold says the kind of sexual exchange that most men employ, friction sex, has uts shortcomings.
If you have paid careful attention, you may have noticed that ordinary friction sex, the kind of sexual exchange that most men employ, is characterized by a series of incessant, robotic, pelvic pumping actions combined with rapid breathing. There is no doubt that this is the fast and hard version of sex that has been glorified in pornography and elsewhere. Though it may generate delicious physical sensations and escalating excitement while it lasts (at least for the man), its usefulness in sexual intercourse must be tempered if sexual intimacy and heart-centered lovemaking becomes more of a priority. If not, as far as men are concerned, the physically taxing and athletic nature of this type of sex inevitably leads to increased muscular tension and male ejaculation followed by energy loss, fatigue and lower consciousness. This is essentially the familiar masculine (yang) version of lovemaking that we as a society have come to embrace. Read more

The Tantric Ejaculation Control Technique

Tantra is an ancient spiritual practice, which teaches its practitioners to enjoy the various positive energies which life has to offer, including sexual energy. To enjoy these energies to their fullest, followers of Tantra attempt to delay their sexual climax in order to build up their sexual energy. These practices result in not only longer lovemaking sessions, but also more powerful orgasms upon climax.

5 Sex Positions to Bring You Closer to Your Partner

These five sex position secrets will bring you closer to your partner and increase the intimacy in your relationship.
Do you want to explore new sex positions to improve your love life? If so, you are not alone. Many people think that new positions will rekindle the lost spark of intimacy and set their sex life on fire. If only it were as easy as switching positions!

The truth is that acrobatic sex positions won't improve your sex life if you don't also make an effort to increase the intimacy you are willing to share with your partner. If you are emotionally detached from one another, even swinging from the chandelier won't help. But if you want to improve your sex life and deepen your intimacy, trying new sex positions can help.

How to Orgasm Together

Orgasms are selfish experiences, says sexpert Tracey Cox, but there ARE ways to have yours together.
The myth of the simultaneous orgasm is still clutching onto the bed sheets tenaciously - and judging by the amount of couples on telly still moaning 'Yes! Yes! Yes!' in unison, it's going to hang on there for some time yet.

The reality is, you'd be hard pressed to find the same scene recreated in bedrooms at home because couples rarely climax together.

Let's take a look at the facts. Roughly 75% of men in relationships always have an orgasm with their partner, compared to 30% of women. Read more

5 Secrets of Tantric Sex

During intense sexual arousal or orgasm, a person can reach a mental state that is very similar to that of meditation.

Interested in exploring Tantric sex? Try these five great sex positions for a taste of Tantra. Practicing Tantric sex means being in the moment. When you’re indulging in Tantric sex, while the act itself is important, it’s the moments leading up to it which make it far more pleasurable. With this in mind, these positions should be carried out as a means to fully experience one another on a sensual and spiritual level, without focusing on the final release - which will certainly come when the time is right. Whenever the couple is facing each other, deep eye contact is encouraged to heighten the intimacy of the experience.

Are Sex and Intimacy Different Things?

The connection between sex and intimacy can be tenuous, says Jonathan Lenbuck. He explains how sex is different from intimacy.
Are sex and intimacy different things? Can you have one without the other? Or does one lead to another?

It seems that there are many conflicting opinions on the roles of sex and intimacy within a relationship (and out of one, too).

It is difficult to really get to the bottom of this problem because no two people have exactly the same ideas on sex. In a traditional framework, sex would come with long-term commitment, or marriage, which would be associated with the couple having an intimate connection with each other (and usually wishing to procreate).

However, in an increasingly promiscuous society, the connection between sex and intimacy can be a tenuous one.  Read more

How to Feng Shui Your Bedroom for a Better Sex Life

When it comes to sex, positions matter, says Kata Hakala.
You probably associate feng shui, the Chinese philosophy of harmonizing your own life with your surroundings, with that time in high school when your mom started frantically repositioning the La-Z-Boy sofa. But according to clinical sexologist and couples' therapist Dr. Kat Van Kirk, designing your bedroom so that it creates positive flows of energy (or "chi") can actually enliven your sex life. We've been hiding under several feet of snow, mothy sweaters, inches of leg hair, and dusty floors for many months now. Spring seems like the perfect opportunity to take on some feng shui practices and make our personal living spaces as sex-friendly as possible. Whether you believe in feng shui or not, most of Dr. Kat's tips will still make your bedroom a whole lot more inviting for an overnight guest. Read more

Finding the Ideal Lover

If you haven't yet found your ideal lover, you may not be searching in the right way.
Love does not belong to anybody, it is divine. It comes from God and it is for God only, manifested in the Created Universe.

One of the most important aspects, if we want to find our ideal lover, the one to complete us and to make our heart happy and fulfilled, is the complete transformation of the negative mind patterns that we maintain.

All those who complain about not finding the right lover have a negative idea in their subconscious mind regarding the couple relationship. In most situations, it is a prior traumatizing experience. Look into yourself and realize that if you lack self-confidence, if you think you do not deserve it, that there is so much in you to transform, that now you have a difficult period, etc., this is the projection you emit mentally and you will receive an answer to this projection.

Kunyara: The Centuries-Old Sex Tradition You've Never Heard Of

Although Tantra is well-known in the West nowadays, kunyara is a centuries-old sex tradition, you've probably never heard of.
For many North American men, female ejaculation is one of the mysteries of female sexuality. Its origins and triggers are contested among women and sexologists, so it’s not surprising that few men can comment on it with much confidence. That was certainly my experience — until I moved to Rwanda, a country where female ejaculation, or kunyara, as it’s known locally, is a matter of social import.

The tradition dates back more than a century, to the Third Dynasty of the Rwandan monarchy. The story goes that while the king was away on a military campaign, the queen demanded that a guard named Kamagere have sex with her. Kamagere acquiesced, but he was so nervous about the possible repercussions that his body trembled uncontrollably. His penis, instead of penetrating the queen, rubbed up and down against her labia and clitoris — a technique that became known as kunyaza. The torrent of liquid or “water” the motion provoked from the queen was called kunyara. Read more

Why Sexual Frustration Is Bad for Your Health

New research on fruit flies discovered some pretty surprising facts about the effect of sexual frustration.
Can’t get no satisfaction? The situation could be worse than you think. Sure, sexual frustration is … well, frustrating. But new research suggests it could also be bad for your physical health.

OK, granted the research was done with fruit flies — not exactly our closest animal counterparts. But the intriguing findings may pave the way for human studies on the subject. “It may not be a myth that sexual frustration is a health issue,” according to lead researcher and University of Michigan professor Scott D. Pletcher. Expecting sex and then not getting it was harmful to flies’ health and cut their lifespans short. Read more
