Tantric Sex for Beginners: 4 Easy Tips!

Keep Your Eyes Open

“The idea of making love with your eyes open is one of the fundamentals of deep connection in intimacy,” says Strgar. “It is surprisingly harder to do than you might expect. Move toward this idea as an intention rather than a rule and be amazed as the collection of glimpses that will reshape how you think about your partner and yourself. It is not easy to be seen, even by the people we love. Truly witnessing the act of love is profoundly transformative.”

Take it Slow

Sorry guys, foreplay is essential in Tantra. A leisurely, slow build helps men control longevity and piques women’s arousal. The longer you linger in this process of building energy, the longer your session will last and the more energy you will build. Use this time to fully focus on each other. As in meditation, when your thoughts wander, gently guide your attention back to your partner and the magic of the moment at hand.

Wow, still the myths persist that tantra=sex and Kama Sutra=tantra! Yoga has become so popular in the west and still we don't understand more than just the most superficial aspects. These are nice tips to enhance sensual connection and communication but I'm not so sure they are really Tantra...

While not always successful, I've "always" believed in and tried to make pleasing my partner a priority. When sex is "fun" and "enjoyable" (I think the world of "eye contact") for both parties, nothing else matters. Don and WE CAN! :-))

Yes, looking into each other's eyes is vital...

Interesting, I can see how this would strengthen a couple's love for each other.

@Judith s. Chill a little, this article is for people that are not novices to tantric and has nothing to do with the religious aspects. The author Veronica Peterson is not saying this is all you need to know to become some Buddha master. One does not need to be a Christan to learn some basic lessons about life from Jesus.

And like Frank pointed out not all men are about getting to the big O as quickly as possible. Maybe when you are 18 that is the goal until you become wiser and learn that it's more about the journey than the destination.

I think I speak for most guys when I say that men are getting sick of these gynocentric viewpoints - as if women are perfect in bed. Essentially this is all about making the guy last longer so that the women can benefit the most out of the timespan. I suppose pleasing the man doesn't really matter. Typical Western female sexist thinking.
