The Tantra: many of us have heard it in passing, but few of us in the West understand its true meaning and purpose. The word comes from two Sanskrit roots, meaning "stretch," and "loom." Practicing the Tantra is meant to exceed your limits, helping you to grow both physically and spiritually. |
The aspect of the Tantra best known to Westerners is its use of sex and sexuality to stretch the boundaries of intimacy, creating more intense and satisfying sexual encounters, which is something most of us would like to have with our partners, even if our relationships are already healthy and happy.
But how is Tantric sex to be practiced, and what are its benefits? Let me offer a brief overview, and if the practice sounds alluring to you, you ought to go on to do further research for both you and your partner's sake.
The Tantra has a long tradition rooted in sexual rites, which came to be centered upon the pleasurable union between male and female, which is meant to achieve three primary purposes--procreation, bliss, and freedom. The sexual union creates a kind of liberation through a transcendent merging of male and female energy.
True Tantric sex is rooted in feelings of love and intimacy, which means that it cannot be achieved if there is emotional friction. Open up the lines of communication and be serious about repairing any rifts in the relationship. Be accepting. Be forgiving. Be willing to make changes.
Being communicative about your expectations in the bedroom will also be helpful if you want to boost your level of intimacy with your partner. Be positive about your expectations instead of making accusations or giving the impression that you aren't satisfied with your performance.
During your sexual experiences, focus on sensation. Erotic movements should be deft and slow, and there should be no hurry to reach climax.
In fact, Tantric practices have been used to help men who suffer from premature ejaculations. Even if this is not an issue for you, you may want to investigate male enhancement supplements or creams that will reduce your chance of releasing before you are ready.
Not every intimate encounter needs to end in sex. As Tantric rituals are focused heavily on sensation, they often involve perfecting the art of massage. Invest in some massage oils or lotions that are pleasing for both of you so that you can learn to touch without sexual expectation.
Practicing the Tantra may not become a way of life for you and your partner. But it can be a way for you to reconnect and increase intimacy if you are committed to each other and improving your sexual interaction.
