Tantric sex practice can enhance the sexual intimacy between couples

Tantric practice specify that sex has three distinct and separate purposes—procreation, pleasure, and liberation.

Those seeking liberation prolong orgasm for a higher form of ecstasy, as the couple learns to appreciate each other’s bodies in a spiritual and sensual way, using breath, stretching and sensual touching to bring each other pleasure. In many ways the use of tantric yoga and the art of tantric sex can be used as a tool to help couples create more intimacy in the relationship. It creates a form of increased awareness between the couple and using the energy of the chakras as well.

Understanding how Tantric yoga practice can enhance the sexual intimacy between couples

The seven chakras are the most well known

1. Crown Chakra
The Crown Chakra is the highest of the 7 chakras and spins the fastest. It is located at the top of the head and is referred to as the thousand-pedaled lotus. It is associated, in the body with the pineal gland & cerebral cortex, with consciousness and the quality of luminosity and corresponds with astral projection and enlightenment. It governs Spirituality and Understanding and its color is violet. It represents that part of our consciousness, which is concerned, with perceptions of unity or separation. The crown chakra accumulates all the energies and emotions from the lower chakra points and transmutes them by fire.

2. Third Eye or Brow Chakra
The third eye is located is located between and slightly above the eyebrows at the center of the forehead. This chakra is the center of psychic powers and can produce many psychic effects. It is associated with the element light and also beyond the elements and is the color indigo, midnight blue. It helps to focus the mind, where one-pointed clarity and peace automatically occur. This Chakra is associated with spirituality and the spiritual perspective. Third eye problems are mutually intensified if the chakras are unclean, especially in a marriage or other relationship. The one with the cleanest chakra intuitively feels betrayed and left out.

3. Throat Chakra
The throat chakra, its name means pure. It is located at the base of the throat and corresponding with psychic hearing. It is associated with the element of communication. The color of this chakra is Sky blue. This chakra controls the throat and the neck, and the arms and the hands. It is an important and unpredictable energy center and is associated with the brachial or cervical plexus. This chakra deals with the power of the spoken word.

4. Heart Chakra
The Heart Chakra is located over the heart and is an anchor for all life force energy. It is associated with the element of air and psychic touch. It governs love, forgiveness, and compassion. The color of this chakra is emerald Green. This Chakra is associated with the heart and the blood circulatory system, and the cardiac plexus, as well as the lungs and the entire chest area. It holds all of our emotions, especially the most powerful ones the things we love and hate. The heart chakra may be open or constricted depending on our approach to life and to the loves and losses that are thrown our way.

5. Solar Plexus Chakra
The Solar Plexus Chakra is located at the navel, corresponding emotions associated with the elements of fire, water and psychic sight. The color of this chakra is yellow and associated with the level of being the personality, or ego. It is the emotional power center where you take control and authority of one's self, emotions and helps project love and light into the world.

The Sacral Chakra is located above and behind the genitals at the center of the abdomen. Its dominant element is water, and it is related to psychic taste. It governs the Sexuality, Emotions, and Desires and is the color orange. This chakra is associated with the parts of the consciousness concerned with food and sex.

7. Root or Base Chakra
The Root Chakra is the lowest of the 7 chakras and spins the slowest. It is located at the base of the spine at the perineum, the point between the anus and the sex organs. It primarily relates to the element of earth and to psychic smell and the color of this chakra is red.

Couples do not have to be experts at yoga or at tantric sex to enjoy the wonderful practice itself, there are many guides that couples can use to add the tantric quality to their love making. As a Sex Therapist and Marriage Counselor I will often incorporate tantric sex along with sensate focus created by Masters and Johnson as a way for couples to slowly get to know each other’s bodies again and enhance the intimacy between them.

For couples that may be having some problems in their sex life and want to explore ways to open up more with one another, watching tantric sex guides and reading tantric books together will not only stimulate the mind, body and soul but it will ease some of the sexual tension that the couple may have with one another. The whole idea behind the use of tantric yoga is to learn to slow down the process of love making by getting to know one another intimately and easing the pressure of performance with love making. The meaning of tantric is in the experience, not in the end result of the intimate exchange between lovers.
