Tantra is an ancient Indian practice that is typically associated with sex but focuses on connection. In Sanskrit, the word tantra means ‘to weave’ and has been adopted by people who practice Buddhist and Hindu meditation.

Those who practice explain that tantra is about enlightenment, which in turn allows you to learn more about your body. Once you have the conscious connection within yourself, you can then forge one between your partner.

Tantra combines spirituality and sexuality to emphasize the significance of intimacy during sex further. As a result, this sexual practice does not completely focus on reaching an orgasm but instead focuses on intimate connections.

Consequently, tantric sex requires a much more patient approach to sexual intimacy and pleasure. Those who practice tantra find that they are more in tune with their body’s needs and their partner’s physical needs.

“The result of tantric practice is the creation of close bonds with one’s partner, greater awareness of one’s body, and the development of skills such as mindfulness, restraint, and communication.”

The mindful and meditative nature of tantric sex has also proven to help ease anxiety around sexual experiences. Tantric sex encourages people to be present in the experience instead of focusing on their performance.

When practicing tantric sex, many experts encourage keeping five things in mind. These include focusing on breathing techniques, eye contact, slowing down, engaging all of your senses, and incorporating massage.

The above elements help heighten the deep connection that is encouraged by tantra. Those who are just starting can incorporate this practice with other forms of intimacy, such as cuddling, to make the transition easier.
