What is tantric sex?
Tantric sex, as the name implies, is a way of having sex based on Tantra. Now ... What is Tantra? This is the basic question that must be answered to understand tantric sex.
Tantra, in Sanskrit, means “Secret,” and it is a set of esoteric Buddhist and Hindu religious texts and rituals where sex is used as way to achieve greater human sensitivity and focus the energy of the universe.
That is, despite what it may seem, tantric sex is not intended for "pleasure" without more (although, obviously, it is pleasant), but is a way to access self-knowledge and receive the energy of the universe, as are other forms of meditation.
This may deserve an extra explanation: Tantra is included in a set of meditation practices that were developed so that people could meditate on a day-to-day basis, and he did not need to isolate himself like the Buddha, throwing himself days and days meditating.
Thus, in this set of techniques, they are contemplated practices for to meditate and improve self-knowledge in different day-to-day practices. For example, practices of this type were popularized for lunchtime, and, also, in the case of sex, which is what concerns us today.
What is special about tantric sex?
The most remarkable thing about tantric sex (and what may surprise most about what we are used to), is that it considers that there is not one sex superior to the other and that there are no distinctions between the beautiful and the ugly, the good and the bad or the pure and the impure.
Let us remember that it is a practice based on the Taoist conception of Yin-Yang, that is, a conception that accepts that there is evil in good, and in evil there is good. That nothing is pure, and nothing is perfect. Thus, sex is lived with much greater normality than in our Christian societies.
Another important point of tantric sex is that it considers that ejaculation is a waste of energyAnd, precisely, practitioners are taught to reach orgasm without ejaculating.
Nevertheless, It is important to insist that Tantra is not reduced to sex. It is something much broader in which sex is only one part. It is important to understand this so that the experience practicing tantric sex is deeper.
Some practices of tantric sex
Now, let's see some tantric sex practices that can help you enjoy your partner much more:
One of the simplest but, at the same time, most effective points of Tantra is eye contact. And, even in couples, there are times when there is fear or shame to look the other person in the eye.
Tantra recommends maintaining eye contact for minutes, silently and nakedly, without starting sex. The two concentrated on "seeing" within each other. This makes sex much more pleasant, since there is a greater spiritual connection.
Another relevant point of Tantra is its feminine cult. In this sense, the man must turn his essence to get her to enjoy, assuming that the pleasure of the woman will end up having an impact on her own pleasure.
For this, the man must show an attitude of full attention to the body of his partner. This increase in the excitement of women will make the man also enjoy greater pleasure.
It should be noted that, although this may seem obvious, the truth is that, in most cultures, pleasure in sex is usually much more related to men than women.
Finally (although there would be much more to say, this is just a few strokes), we can talk about the domain of orgasm. Tantra insists that ejaculation causes man to lose physical energy and need time to recover.
For this reason, we also insist on the need to be able to control orgasm. In this way, it is possible to go from the "peak" orgasm (the normal, the explosive and ejaculatory) to the "valley" orgasm, which is an orgasm sustained over time and that allows lengthening the intercourse.
As you can see, the tantric sex It is a practice with the most interesting benefits. If you are looking for new ways to enjoy with your partner, you should propose some of the techniques of this magnificent way of having sex originating in India.
