Tantra is a wonderful practice that can help you to form a deeper connection with your partner, as well as offering many benefits for your sex life, including boosting confidence in the bedroom and enhancing intimacy. However, tantra is much more than just a tool to initiate tantric sex. There is a long, rich history of tantra practices – many of which have been around for thousands of years, rooted in the meaning of the weaving of energy. This helps you to connect with the present moment, providing a higher sense of self for mind and body. If you’re looking to explore tantra for relationships, here are five handy tips to encourage your partner to join you.
Start exploring together
Learning tantra on your own means you’re likely to experience spiritual and sexual growth, leaving your partner behind. By exploring tantra together you are able to practice tantra and learn at the same pace, meaning you can enjoy the connection and intimacy it delivers. Your relationship will grow stronger, deepening your bond.
Connect in the morning
One of the best things you can do to improve sexual intercourse is to connect on a spiritual level. While laying in bed in the morning, tell each other five things which you enjoy about being together. This is a great technique for laying the foundations of tantra.
Check in with each other
Spend a couple of minutes per day checking in with each other to share your current feelings, what you’re working on, what challenges you’re facing or how you are doing in this current moment. This helps you to express emotions that are on your mind, deepening intimacy so you’ll feel more comfortable in the bedroom.
Be more aware of your physical intimacy
Most people aren’t aware during physical or sexual contact. Just like tantra, this is a practice in itself. Try five-minute intervals of being present in your physical connection with your partner. Start by maintaining eye contact with each other for the first five minutes. Next, use sensual touches on your partner’s arms, legs and body while your partner is present in the moment. Next, switch roles. You can also practice kissing and much more in five-minute intervals.
Watch tantra videos
Watching tantra videos in the comfort of your own home can give you an insight into how to practice tantra and how to get the most out of it. If your partner is wary about starting tantra, this could be just the encouragement they need to begin. When your partner realises that tantric practices are a delightful exploration of the body and mind, they may begin to understand that tantra is a powerful tool in taking your relationship to the next level.
