Tantra is a spiritual path that embraces sexuality as a doorway to the Divine. If you experience love making as a living prayer and see our beloved as a God or Goddess, then sex can take you beyond the world of form, into the formless mystical realms. Here are 7 Tantric tips to help you turn sex into a spiritual practice.
Kissing and Biting the Neck
The neck is a sensitive and exciting erogenous zone. Explore the whole neck and throat area using various types of kisses, nibbles, nips and bites. Take direction from your lover as to what they like. See if you can bring your lover to orgasm by only stimulating their neck.
Before making love, take time to breathe together and connect your energy. Practice slow belly breathing while gazing into each others’ eyes. Do this practice until you feel the energy flowing between you. Connect your energy to your lover’s energy beginning at the base of the spine and moving up to the heart.
Share How You Like to Be Loved
Take turns telling your lover exactly how you like to be love. Be specific. Show them where and how to touch you. You may even want to demonstrate by touching yourself as they watch. Describe how you like to be kissed, if you like your hair pulled, describe a favorite fantasy, etc.
Embody a Particular God or Goddess
Dress up as a particular God or Goddess, such as Krishna and Radha, the Hindu God and Goddess of Love . Embody their qualities and imagine how it would be to make love to each other as this God and Goddess. Then play out your roles as “Divine Lovers.”
Give your beloved an erotic massage. Take your time, use long slow strokes, and go slow. Discover new ways to give them pleasure. Help them expand their “pleasure body” by using, the 3 Keys of Sky Dancing Tantra, breath, sound and movement.
Recite Erotic Poetry
Find poetry that turns you on. I like Rumi, Hafiz, and Kabir. Spend time reading erotic poetry aloud to your lover. Write your lover an erotic or ecstatic poem and recite to him/her. Make up a Haiku. Let language massage your soul.
Be a Love Artist
Stretch yourself and discover new ways to love as you never have before. Be a canvass for love to play upon. Know you can not fail as a love artist. Humans are love in form. Allow yourself to be inspired and share your vision with others.
Tantra is an ancient spiritual path that embraces all areas of life as a path to awakening. Humans need to be touched and feel love. Sexuality is one way to connect to your life force energy and enter ecstatic realms. Learning to give and receive pleasure is healthy, fun and bonding. Practice loving yourself and others daily. Spread the joy and create a better world.
