Mention the word “tantra” and the first thing that comes to mind is sex. While it is true that sex is an important aspect of tantra, it is just one component of this ancient spiritual path. Known as the path of the householder, tantra practices are beneficial to our physical, spiritual, emotional and sexual health.

Sexual health can be improved naturally thru the tantric sex. Besides sharing a strong body/mind/spirit connection, every loving couple should also enjoy multiple, powerful sexual orgasms which will stimulate and increase the secretion of the pineal and pituitary glands. During tantric sex the brain chemistry is affected by empowering the endocrine glands for more hGH, serotonin, DHEA, and testosterone.

Scientific and medical studies prove that sexual health improves drastically...stimulating blood circulation, detoxifying the body through the breath, strengthening the cardiovascular, endocrine/immune and nervous functions, leading to improved sexual health, rejuvenation and longevity.

Orgasms that last at least 20 minutes can alleviate depression altogether and take years off our face as depression is eliminated from our life. It prolongs life span, strengthens the immune system and improves overall sexual health by freeing our body and mind through tantric sex.

Men can derive great benefits by increasing sexual quantity with one partner in a safe, healthy, natural way through tantric sex. Tantric sex focuses on the benefits of prolonging the sex act for more intimacy and health benefits.

Loss of interest can arise from being too busy, overworked, and having an insensitive lover who doesn’t know how to make you happy. The guilt and shame factor is deeply imbedded in our Western culture mainly perpetuated through religion and our upbringing. In the East, the body and all its functions are considered beautiful and natural.

Frequent orgasms can benefit women’s sexual health tremendously. However, there is a vast difference in having an ordinary orgasm and having a tantric orgasm. Ordinary orgasms, which are the norm, are of short duration, isolated in the sex organs.
Tantric sex orgasms, on the other hand, involve the full person--body, mind and spirit for extended periods of time.

Frequent and powerful orgasms increase the level of the orgasm hormone, oxytocin. The oxytocin level is linked to the personality, passion, social skills and emotional quotient (EQ), all of which affects career, marriage, emotions and social life. Orgasms are very beneficial for sexual health because they empower our pituitary (brain function).

To obtain the benefits of a tantric orgasm, the shakti, or energy, the rising kundalini, must pierce each of the chakras (vortexes of energy in the subtle body)as it ascends the spinal cord. It must reach the brain's central nervous system and endocrine command center - the hypothalamus and pituitary gland to command the changes that will benefit our sexual health.
How to do this? Meditation and mindfulness are the primary tools by which we discover our divinity, exposing our heart to the beauty and joy within and without.
