Tantra Sex: Is it worth the effort?Page 2 of 2    (1, 2)
My wife and I practiced this when we married...a truly sacred and profound experience. I cannot even imagine doing this practice with anyone I was less than totally into for a long while.
Tantric sex with condoms? NO WAY. I just cannot see that working out. That barrier would completely defeat the effort on so many levels. It had better be with someone with whom there's sufficient trust to dispense with them. Just my $.02

Is it worth the effort ?

Well, that all depends on where you are spiritually. Tantra is a Yogic path. Yoga requires discipline. It's not about sex. Sex can be an elemental part of it, however it's more about transcending the physical body.

Many people that look to Tantra, from the Western world, are expecting some phenomenal "physical" experience. Tantra is a "spiritual" path.

So, unless you're looking to evolve spiritually, you may not want to even bother going down that road.

It came naturally to me in my early 30's, I had my spiritual awakening when I was 19. Tantra wasn't even something I was looking for or even knew about. I started doing it, months before I found out what the name of what my ex and I had been practicing over a long distance relationship to strengthen our spiritual connection, on a sensual level.

It really can be amazing, if you're in it for the right reasons. If not, you'll only get frustrated, because there are things you have to comprehend about what you're doing. If you're not in the right mindset, and all you're focused on is to "cum". Well, all I can say is good luck with that. No promises.

Tantra is actually a parent form of yoga. Hatha and Iyengar, among many other styles are actually part of it. So a person can be a Tantric practitioner and be doing nothing out of the ordinary. But it also includes some ecstatic practices that are said (in my Iyengar class we haven't touched on any) to involve sex and it's energy. That's about as much as I know, unless somebody wants to talk about Warrior poses.

It seems to me that Tantric sex is for the more mature person who wants to take their time and often has been with the partner for some time. There are classes you can take and information online as well as books.

Nope. You can introduce new partners to this concept.
I like to fuck for hours, who doesn't?

Right on the mark-think of it as putting eachother in a trance based on touch--orgasm isnt always the outcome its the closeness of it all and building a familiarity. Once you both are comfortable teasing eachother the orgasms tend to be very intense,since ive been involved with edging and tantric practices-my orgasms last several minutes where as before it was just me cummin and that lasting under 10 seconds. with tantra-its easy to make my partner have orgasms back to back and they last longer. People rush sex generally-kiss and make out for 5 min n get into and its over in about 20 minutes lol. With tantra its about learning your partners breath-exploring limits,making out for more then 20 min-to get a real feel for what thier about--intimately. I got in involved after the first time i fell in love decades ago--i wanted to be sure my gf didnt want to stray behind sex--i kept up with it ever since

Never thought of Tantra as being without touch. No touch is everything to me, I love reducing a woman to goo, lost in orgasms.

I did some testing of some tantric style stuff on myself using both mental stimulation of semi trance like state as well as bodily massage touch in several areas, then building myself up to a pleasure wave and having several orgasms, then had a final one which I tingled for almost an hour in my groin and probably just a few minutes of it tingling in my abdomen. I could not believe how long that feeling lasted. I am very sensitive though so that might not work for everyone. I don't view porn and masturbate only every week ish, am also a virgin so I can only theorize to weather it would be awesome with a partner or not but I lean towards yes. Also the touch free type stuff I do believe in since I can feel other peoples feelings somewhat. I would think you could both get into a mental state and just feel each others minds if you were close enough and in sync with each others emotions. Would take the right kind of partner to let go and be that comfortable though. So in regards to the OP's question yeah Tantric techniques are totally worth it including the kissing techniques of breathing energy into one another. I will have to do some further research on this stuff.
