What is Tantric Sex?
Tantric sex is a philosophy that finds its roots in India. It combines the ideology of tantra (One’s energy) with sexuality. It explains that through sex, a couple can ascend to a higher plane of spirituality. It doesn’t consider sex as sinful but a very sacred practice.

Getting started with Tantric Sex
Tantric sex starts before sex, you must start by creating the atmosphere, mood, cleanliness, sound, aura, into your sexual space to begin the Tantric journey.
Prepare the space.
Take time to prepare the space and get ready for your experience. Make fresh bedding, soft pillows, light some scented candles, place some water or wine someplace both you reach easily. keep fruits or chocolate handy in case you wish to extend the session.
Tantric sex is about generating the sexual energy and building it instead of simply doing the act and reaching orgasm. Commit to each other, to abstain from reaching orgasm altogether, you can play with your or each others body but never orgasm. The thought is to reach the delicious state of being ecstasy
Sit down and take position.
Breathing is key in tantra, one has to use breathing to increase your own intimacy by breathing each other’s breath. A few ways to sit for this are.
- You can sit cross-legged in front of each other with your knees touching.
- You can sit together with one partner’s legs wrapped around the other’s torso.
- One partner can sit on the other’s lap. Your legs should be wrapped around each other.
Once you have maintained position, hold each other and breath together. You can touch each other caress one another, kiss, play but gently and slowly. The key to success here is to focus on breathing completely differently than you normally would when you’re super aroused. When you are aroused and about to reach orgasm, you start to breath shallow, try to focus on long and slow breaths that fills you lungs – in through mouth and out through nose.
Act of sex.
Two of you can continue the process of caressing and breathing together as long as you two feel like you can stand it. Once you both reach a point where you can’t go another moment without taking each other, go ahead and start with the act.
It focuses on journey rather than destination, it makes sense to spend plenty of time to enjoy each others body and plenty of foreplay. Tantric sex is not your just another bedroom quickie but requires a lot of preparation, if done correctly, you might find your sex life rejuvenated. You might also reach a stage where you could enjoy multiple orgasms.
