Because Tantric sex offers answers to some of our very important but unanswered needs in a long-term sexual relationship. Tantric sex is a soultion to the needs that are not normally answered elsewhere in sex advice:
What is Tantric Sex?
Tantric sex is a higher potential, a greater experience, a more advanced art, mastery and healing of lovemaking. Tantric sex is for those who strive for higher planes and who want to keep growing.
They say we only use 10% of our brain. The same goes for sex. Conventional sex science sees physical sexual connection as purely anatomical and intellectual. 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 love life 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 doesn’t seem to get further beyond seeking physical pleasure and entertainment.
Tantric lovemaking is more global, it is about harnessing your emotions, consciousness, body and sexual energy principles to create a more profound sexual experience. In Tantric sex you experience more pleasure but you also direct all those sexual energies to emotional satisfaction and love between you. In Tantric sex you don’t build up sexual energy only 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. Lovemaking becomes more than just fun – Tantric sex 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.
Tantric sex becomes a connecting, spiritual, inspirational experience that influences your whole life. Tantric lovemaking unites lovers in a very special and profound journey of life.
Tantric sex is just a set of “healthy eating” principles for your physical intimacy. You understand better how your sexual energy can be aroused and consumed for greater happiness. It is not just for Hinduists or New Agers – Tantric sex is the reality of human sexual potential, harnessing the capacities that we have beyond the animal. With this greater understanding your love life will never fizzle out, will never run into problems, will always keep growing and giving you more every day. Knowing about these principles is not a conversion into some exotic kind of ritualised practice – it is understanding more about true power of sex, the deeper knowledge that leads us to our full happiness. 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 make love the Tantric way on some days and in a more conventional entertaining way on other days, or you can enhance your usual love life with Tantric principles. There is no need to be alarmed – Tantric sex doesn’t take anything away, it only adds.
Tantric sex has this name because these principles were discovered by adepts of 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.
