Tantric Sex - Sexopedia Term 55

Tantric Sex has origins in India and it dates back to thousands of years. Tantric sex is commonly believed to allow couples enjoy sex for hours together. It is there in the spiritual texts of Hinduism and Tibetan Buddhist spirituality. It primarily involves medication and breathing techniques. According to Tantra, every facet of human experiences including sex, has potential for personal transformation and self realization.

For a trained tantric, life is a medication and every act of life like eating, drinking, breathing, dancing, making love — can be accomplished perfectly when it is done with complete awareness. According to Hindu spiritual tradition, tantric sex, is a form of sex, which when practiced with awareness and heartful commitment, helps the practitioners to achieve enlightenment.

Tantric sex is focused on very slow intercourse with an emphasis on synchronized breathing, touching, eye contact, and intimacy with your partner. Unlike regular sex, orgasm is not the goal, but rather prolonging it and feeling deep connection between partners is what tantric sex propagates to achieve.
