Tantra for the Uninitiated
Simon and Emily were busy people. They lived in San Francisco, and in their early thirties were at exciting times in their careers: Their lives were a series of work trips, networking dinners and endless hours at their respective law offices. They had worked hard for their condo, with its blond hardwood floors and view of the marina. They were both competitive, and the same forces that propelled them through the ranks of their law firms also tended to give them an active and aggressive sex life. Neither had a problem reaching orgasm.
But when they had sex Emily (and Simon) each ran their own separate race, each with both eyes on their own separate orgasmic prize. More and more, their lives felt mechanical: the nice home, the hard work, the handsome couple attending events, the sex that was a robust, but almost robotic, release. Then Emily lost her job, and suddenly everything seemed a lot more fragile. The disconnection between them could no longer be covered up with constant activity—Emily needed Simon, and she didn’t feel like they saw eye to eye anymore. In fact, they barely looked at each other.
After reading an article about tantric sex, she suggested it. He thought it sounded interesting and kind of sexy, and so they tried it: no longer could they make love in their own separate worlds of pleasure. Their bodies, and more than that, had to work in unison, picking up subtle hints. They found themselves locking eyes, something they had never done before during sex. Suddenly running the race alone didn’t seem so appealing.
