Keniece Ford shares this beginner's guide to sacred sex.

These four Tantric yoga exercises are simple, but can have profound effects, especially for beginners.
Tantra is a school of thought that developed between the fourth and sixth century from a series of ancient texts known as the Tantras. It is a spiritual practice, similar to Buddhism. However, it differs from Buddhism in the belief that enlightenment can be obtained through the body, as opposed to just the mind.
As a result, Tantrics were notorious for breaking some of the rules most commonly held by religions of the time by consuming alcohol, eating meat and having sex. They did not shy away from physical pleasure like the Buddhists. In fact, they did quite the opposite: They sought pleasure. Read more
