I dated someone who practiced Tantra, and as that was the part that I couldn't come to terms with, it never went anywhere. I have gained a lot from what he had to say and I agree with most of it.I received the White Tara blessing from Kyabje Gehlek Rinpoche a few years ago. He was a self-proclaimed tantric master and he talked about man and woman having forgotten how to make love.Remember that we are the largest free online dating service, so you will never have to pay a dime to meet your soulmate.
Hoping that it "achieves it" every time isn't really in the spirit of Tantric sex.
If it brings you closeness and harmony, then it was worthwhile, even if it didn't lead to some kind of climax.
Tantric sex is like shared meditation while you're as physically close as possible.
As a hyperactive person, I have found that it slows me down and makes me take the time for a sexual relationship that it really deserves.
Champaign Dreams"I follow a tantric Buddhist practice..."Can you explain further? I did a search on tantra and it came up under different countries/locations that I don't post in.
And it didn't answer my question if it was worth the effort.There isn't any mention of sex in there :-) This being said, some times a guide book to a new experience can be a fun thing, and I'm guessing that is what you're getting at with this I can google and or read books...I think we can all learn something new from the POF community and I kind of like the idea of engaging other people to participate in the art of conversation.I'm not the same person I was five years ago and I very much like the changes :-)It is about a connection that is your senses and inner mind trying to be the same as your partners while without trying to achieve a "Goal". It is more spiritual that leads to sensual that leads to sexual. It goes into more detail, yet this begins to enter into another relam of seeing and being, that goes beyond learning techniques and current identities. Not all of my partners have understood that nor wanted to pursue it. It was the closest I have ever been to true intimacy. I follow a tantric Buddhist practice but we never describe it as such, always using the sanskrit word vajrayana instead.I find for myself it has only worked with someone who i really care about in a serious relationship. The biggest 'complaint from them was "Wasn't I attracted to them enough? " The ones that participated and understood never complained. Some years ago I had to read Lama Yeshe's Introduction To Tantra as part of my spiritual progress.I want to know if going through all of that is worth the heightened pleasure, do you achieve it every time, with different lovers.
