Contrary to Tantric sex, conventional sex science see sex as purely anatomical.
We look for ways to get turned on - start desiring sexual pleasure, then
we stimulate particular nerves in our genitals to get discharged and give
us momentary pleasure. Sex is something fun and pleasurable but not more
than that. Because of such narrow focus this kind of sex can quickly fade,
run into problems, be affected by health and age, and many couples feel
something deeper is missing because they love each other but the sex doesnt
seem to get further beyond seeking physical pleasure and entertainment.
In the Tantric view sex is more global, it is about harnessing your emotions,
consciousness, body and sexual energy principles to create a more profound
sexual experience. You experience more pleasure but you also direct all
those sexual energies to emotional satisfaction and love between you.
You don't build up sexual energy to be discharged in a moment of quick
pleasure, you build it up to feed yourself and your bond. You create love
and connection through physical contact. Sex becomes more than just fun
- it is a source of positive energy for your daily life, which you will
feel in your health, emotional wellbeing and feeling of greater love between
you. It is about how to truly make love in sex.
The vision of Tantric sex is just a set of "healthy eating"
principles for your sex life. You understand better how your sexual energy
can be aroused and consumed for greater happiness. It is not just for
Hinduists or New Agers - it is the reality of human sexual potential.
With this greater understanding sex life will never fizzle out, will never
run into problems, will always keep growing and giving you more every
day. Knowing about these common sense principles is not a conversion into
some exotic kind of sex - it is understanding more about true power of
sex, the deeper knowledge that leads us to our full sexual potential.
Rather, conventional sex science is not really about true sex - it is
just a very poor fraction of it, a severe lack of knowledge.
You can have Tantric sex on some days and more conventional entertaining
sex on other days, or you can enhance your normal sex with Tantric principles.
The name exists because these principles were discovered by adepts of
the Tantra spiritual tradition in India. They did use it for spiritual
practice, but this is no longer important. These principles can now be
easily learned by everyone just to enhance their love life and relationship
- much like yoga for many people is no longer a spiritual practice, but
just a way to keep healthy.
