The word Tantra means “to manifest, to expand, to show and to weave. Tantric sexual practices teach us to prolong the act of making love and to utilize potent orgasmic energies more effectively.
The most important features of tantric sexual practice revolve around the experience of subtle energies within one’s sensual embodiment, and the accessing of these energies both to enhance pleasure and to challenge our egotism into its dissolution. Thus, tantric sexuality often cultivates ecstatic consciousness as well as increased spiritual awareness of the erotic consciousness that pervades one’s human embodiment as well as everything that contextualizes this embodiment.
Tantric sexual methods may be practiced solo, in partnership, or in the sacred rituals of groups.
How to perform tantric sex
- Start by turning down the lights and shutting out the rest of the world.
- Loosen your body, shake your limbs vigorously to energise and unblock your system before you start.
- Try lying down with your partner on the floor and slowly start to touch each other, taking your time to leisurely make your way around their body.
- Try a variety of touches like firm massage, light feathery touches, and gentle stroking. Performed in the right way this can prolong sex and your pleasure for hours.
- Think about breathing. Inhale as your partner exhales and vice versa – it can help improve the connection between the two of you and keep your mind on what’s happening.
