Tantric sex refers to many ritualized or yogic practices in Hinduism and Buddhism. Tantric sex is a slow, meditative sexual form where the ultimate goal is not orgasm but to enjoy the sexual journey and body sensations.
If you are into spirituality, meditation, or yoga, you may have previously heard about Tantra. Many people use Tantra as a way of life, and for some, it’s a codeword for sexual pleasure. Let’s see what it is and where it comes from.
Tantric Sex and its Origin
Tantric sex comes from ancient Hinduism and revolves around sexual activities to establish a deep and intimate connection. The word “tantra” means woven together. Tantric sex is a way of “weaving” spiritually and physically. It aims to move sexual energy throughout the body to heal, transform and illuminate.
This practice brings spirituality and sexuality together and highlights the importance of intimacy with both yourself and your partner(s) in a sexual experience. It helps to achieve a delightful degree of spiritual healing practices and techniques.
How To Reclaim Your Sexual Power Through Tantra
Sexual energy is a powerful force that can be an excellent catalyst for spiritual growth and healing when used consciously. To manifest your total sexual energy or power in tantric sex, you have to surrender. You must completely surrender and believe in your partner for receiving and giving the delight that you desire.
It encourages people to know and get in touch with their bodies. The objective is to be present during tantric sex to achieve a sensual and fulfilling sexual experience. For most people, it’s a turn-on when sexual power is blended with spiritual power. So, we suggest you try it.
Tantric Meditation and Orgasmic Bliss
Tantric meditation helps you to achieve a high degree of pleasure and orgasmic happiness. It’s this expanded ability for many people to connect to a partner that leads them to Tantra. One part is improving the bond with your partner, and the other part is to achieve sexual ecstasy. The ecstatic orgasms that Tantra creates keep people coming back for more.
When you start a tantra practice, you don’t jump straight to the ecstatic orgasms, and that’s okay. Every new ability begins with the basics! Gentle movement and breathing techniques and Tantra Yoga (which increases energy) are enjoyable by yourself as you travel down the tantric sex.
Breathing is a critical component of tantric sex because it helps a person focus on their mind and keep the body in touch. There are several meditation practices in tantric sex to achieve orgasmic bliss, but we call this “tantric breathing practice” Let’s look at what this practice does.
Tantric Breathing Practice for Sensual Pleasure
Respiring together connects you with your partner and assists in a powerful and loving exchange between the energy of your body and mind. Practice this with on clothes or naked. Sit down in front of your partner. Sit straight with your spine and your posture open and alert, but relaxed, if possible. Make sure you touch your knees as close as possible. Take a deep look into each other’s eyes and focus on your breathing.
First, be together, breathe and connect. Then start to sync your breath. At the same time, breath in together; breath out together. Stay for a few moments with this synchronized breath practice. First, open your eyes and explore with closed eyes.
Next, continue to exchange breaths. Here, when your partner exhales, you inhale and then exhale when your partner inhales. Imagine exchanging your life energy when you inhale the breath of your partner and exhale your breath into it.
The third breath practice is essentially a circular tantric breath. Place your attention at your root or sexual chakra, still facing each other. This place of energy collection is found in the perineum area (between the vaginal opening and the anus, between the base of the scrotum and the anus). Try to tighten this area to make you feel the experience.
Then, as you inhale, imagine energy rising from this root center and going up through the center of your heart and up the front to the head crown. In the exhalation, turn the flow, imagine the breath and energy flooding your body through your forehead, throat, heart, belly, and sexual center.
Enhance Your Love Life with Tantra Meditation
Tantra meditation helps you grow spiritually and later on creates the basis for achieving physical enjoyment.
At its essence, Tantra is a practice that combines movement, breath, meditation, and sound to assist the body to open. This opening allows dormant energy, known as kundalini, to move up from the pelvis along the spine. This life-force energy movement can help you heal by loosening constrictions within the body that have developed over a lifetime. The expansion of the energy in the body also increases sensation and the ability to connect with others.
Even more fundamental (and far easier to learn from reading an article) are meditations that guide you to move energy up and down the spine and expand the energy centers of your body. With regular practice of only five minutes each day, gradually adding time as you progress, Tantra becomes available to all physical abilities. Most people, who want to, can find time to fit this into their daily routine.
Ideas That can Help you Master Your Tantric Sex Experience
Tantric meditation techniques, along with some good ideas, raise energy and invite the energy centers to open. Even if you’re not currently in an intimate relationship with someone, read the list of ideas we offer, and practice them solo. These ideas offer tangible benefits and help you in the long run if you want to achieve a unique tantric sex experience.
We tend to be in our heads, creating stories about ourselves and our partners when we are having sex. We often judge our bodies, our ability to please our partners. When trying something new, like tantric sex, those judgments and fears can be amplified. The key is to go into this with no judgment and no plan. Just let go and have fun.
Make eye contact
Intimacy is not just about being naked and engaging in intercourse. Even when you are, you can still hide from true intimacy. As they say, the eyes are the windows to the soul. So, try holding eye contact during foreplay and sex for a prolonged time. It might feel uncomfortable at first, and, sure, you might even giggle from the awkwardness, but the benefits far outweigh that initial uncomfortable feeling.
Prolonged eye contact during sex lets you see deep inside the other person and lets them see deep inside you. When people close their eyes during sex, they often focus on their pleasure or thinking of something or someone else. Or they are just afraid to be truly connected. Eye contact helps you be fully connected to your sensations and feelings and your partner’s as well.
Try feather-light touching
Caressing your partner with a feather-light touch is one form of foreplay in tantric sex. You can gently run your fingernails up and down his arms, back, neck, etc. The skin is a powerful and sensitive organ. This is a great way to tease and delay gratification, which helps build sexual tension and increase your arousal. It also raises the anticipation of sex, which increases dopamine levels in the body. In tantra, foreplay is not about oral sex or heavy making out. It can be gentle, sensual, and loving and still create a magnetic buildup. Use sex toys too. They can seriously create a genuine and exciting connection. Sex toys are known to enhance pleasure too.
