Tantric sex: what it is, positions to try, and ways to practice
If you're looking for where to start, here are some expert-approved tantric sex tips that you can try whether you're a tantra first-timer or a level expert.
What is tantric sex and how can it spice up your sex life?
Put simply, it involves slowing down and enjoying all of the build-up to the main event, rather than rushing to get there. The opposite of a quickie, tantric sex is all about enjoying each other and increasing intimacy.
Tantric sex is a whole new way of being in sexual connection that allows you access to deeper levels of feeling, sensation, and energy, and ultimately more of who you really are.
This path is simple but profound: It's about wholeheartedly celebrating the sacredness of our bodies and desires while bringing a quality of mindful awareness to the shared expression of pleasure.
It can help you release shame, trauma, and blocks around sex, unleashing the transformative power of your erotic energy and leading you to some of the most soul-shattering orgasms ever. Through this holistic approach, sensuality also becomes a doorway to beingness, to the divine, and to a more intimate experience of the present moment.
Why should I give tantric sex a try?
Tantric experts believe that if you extend the time and effort you put into sex, you will reach a higher and more intense form of ecstasy.
How tantric sex works and what it involves
Tantric sex involves a wide array of erotic activities, not all of which involve the same kind of penetration and physical stimulation of erogenous zones that most people associate with sex.
Tantric sex is good for you if...
- You’re looking for something new to do in bed
- You want to become even more intimate with your partner
- You want to try to reconnect with your husband or boyfriend
How to perform tantric sex
The good news is tantric sex isn’t ‘goal-oriented’, which means you don’t have to work hard at learning what to do.
The trick is to take your mind off your orgasm and instead focus on making foreplay enjoyable and rewarding until you’re ready to take it to its natural end.

What is a tantric relationship?
Tantra is the path of growing in love and consciousness. Love being the feminine part of duality, consciousness being the masculine. Spiritual union - dissolving of duality, is combining and merging the masculine energy with the feminine one, and merging the two into oneness.

Can't Seem to Relax in bed? THIS WILL HELP
It's difficult for me to relax when my husband and I "do the dirty", because I stress myself to no end that I won't be able to reach orgasm "quickly enough" or that it won't be a "perfect" one. Diana Richardson is helping me SO much to "relearn" how to make love to my husband and thoroughly enjoy the act again by focusing my entire energetic being on the here and now instead of rushing it and causing "friction" (not a good kind, lol) the whole time.
