P Diddy shined a spotlight on tantric sex with just one tweet:

However, sexual Tantra has been around “since early Hindu Tantra as a means of catalyzing biochemical transformations in the body to facilitate heightened states of awareness.”

 “Tantric texts specify that sex has three distinct purposes: procreation, pleasure and liberation. Those seeking liberation eschew orgasm in favor of a higher form of ecstasy. Several sexual rituals are recommended and practiced, involving elaborate preparatory and purification rites.”

Here is a short definition:

 

There are some basic ideas that are common in practicing tantric love:

It is important to learn about meditation so that one can establish a daily personal meditation practice which will greatly help when practicing tantric sex:

There are many websites like this one that can give step by step tips to practicing  tantric sex:

1. Try the heart breath to tune into each other. Stand opposite one another and look into each other’s eyes placing your left hand on your partner’s heart. He should then place his hand over your left one and you should try to match each other’s breathing for at least two minutes.

2. Sit face-to-face (this works better if you sit in his lap). Wrap your arms as tightly around one another and press your body against each other. This kind of skin contact promotes greater feelings of intimacy.

3. Ensure you move and breathe slowly during sex (it can help to avoid any position that you know makes you orgasm easily) and work towards a gradual build-up of pleasure. The more slowly you can allow your feelings and sensations to build up, the more intense your eventual orgasm will be

Facebook and Your “Relationship Status”

Hilarious Relationship Status

One of the plethora of possible Facebook relationship options

This blog is dedicated to chronicling the many ways the media portrays romantic relationships or the evolving “love story”. With the idea of love expanding past the traditional mold of one man and one woman, different definitions and labels of relationships have sprung up in popular culture. With the media acting as a lens, this blog will explore each label and definition that represents a minor, but growing perception that one relationship type does not fit all. I seek to shed light and awareness, and even understanding by illuminating love in all forms, while providing a glimpse of distinct relationships molds that to not conform to the norm. Recently, Facebook recognized a need to provide more than 50 options to each of its users to describe gender, and I believe that  in time, the relationship options will also expand to match users’ needs. The labels, “single”, “in a relationship”, “engaged”, “in a civil union”, “married”, and “it’s complicated” just don’t cut it anymore in the ever changing world of 21st century love.
