Sexual intimacy is the ultimate gift we can share with someone. It is not only one of life’s greatest pleasures it is also the purest form of connecting with another human. Every time you choose to engage with your lover is an opportunity for exciting exploration, it is precious time you devote to one another and it is a quest to understand his or her nuances. No doubt, with the right purpose, it brings two people closer together on many levels. There are loads of options in terms of variety when it comes to sexual interactions, but of all the variations Tantric sex gets the overwhelming high five.The word Tantra is defined as to weave. Sexually speaking it is a way to connect a man and a woman to create an exquisite whole. Tantric sex is not a wam bam thank you mam kind of experience; it is the ability to prolong sexual bliss for each partner in the relationship.
Have I piqued your interest? Care to give it a try? There are lots of books, videos, articles even tele-seminars on the “how to’s” of Tantric sex. In fact, if you have no inhibitions, join a class in your local neighborhood.
What I find so tantalizing about Tantric sex is not just the connection you will experience with your partner, but also how in tune you will feel with your own body. In order to fully experience the Tantric orgasmic highs you need to strengthen your core, improve flexibility and control breathing. Yep, you have to workout! But it’s exercise with an incredibly worthy higher purpose. Below is a 15 minute routine you and your partner can do together (NAKED ☺)
BREATHING. Any kind of physical activity requires an adequate in take of oxygen and doing it together ante’s up the intimacy. Sit cross-legged facing each other, look into each other’s eyes and rhythmically sync your breathing. Practice this exercise until you can sustain eye contact and synchronize breathing for 5 to 7 minutes.
STRETCHING. To be able to move with one another through a variety of positions over an extended period of time requires flexibility in your lower back. Lie on the floor, bend your knees and hug them close to your chest. Hold this stretch for 30 to 60 seconds. Then do the superman. Stretch your body straight out, arms over your head, legs flat on the floor, toes pointed. Try to polarize the tips of your fingers from the bottom of your toes. Hold this stretch of 30 to 60 seconds.
Women should stretch your outer thighs. Lie on your back, bend your right knee and with your left hand pull your right knee over your left leg. Gently push it down as close to the floor as possible. Hold the stretch for 30 to 60 seconds. Switch legs and do exactly the same stretch.
CORE. All your strength comes from your core. The better you can control and tighten your ab muscles, the more sexual positions you will be able to master and maintain and ultimately your orgasmic release will be more profound and powerful.
Slow raise crunches are key. If you don’t have any lower back issues try these with your partner. One person holds the feet of the other person. The person doing the crunches has knees bent, arms behind your head. Slowly raise your upper body half way to your knees, hold the crunch for 30 seconds and release. Try 10 of these to start and work up to 30. Switch partners.
