Lingam Puja

Posted in Tantric sex with tags , , , , , on April 24, 2015 by alvinavalon

pujaTantra is an ancient spiritual tradition with sacred rituals dating back hundreds if not thousands of years. Descriptions of Tantric practices sometimes read like a contemporary sex manual, as in the following account of the ritual known as Lingam Puja:

The male penis is worshipped by the Pundai-Stri who blessed the pujari with her vaginal libations. She will move her hands across his body in large circles, finally concentrating her attention on the lingam or the erect penis. She will then hold the erect lingam in her hand and stroke it gently, and then more vigorously until the lingam blesses her with its libations. Sometimes, the yoni-stri will take the Penile libations in her mouth, with the erect Lingam shooting its life-giving seminal fluids into her mouth.

[Then] she takes the lingam to the mouth of her divine passage or yoni, and enjoys the warmth of the throbbing penis. The warm embrace of the lingam by the unctuous yoni creates a sangam (union) that generates cosmic energy that leads to liberation or a state of Nirvana that must be experienced to be appreciated.

Orgasmic Meditation

Posted in Sexual meditation with tags , , , , on April 8, 2015 by alvinavalon

Nicole DaedoneOrgasmic Meditation (OM) is a form of mindfulness meditation in which the focus of mindfulness is on the clitoris. The technique was developed by Nicole Daedone (pictured above), a former professor of Semantics and Gender Communication. The term is somewhat misleading because the primary aim of OM is not to achieve orgasm but (as with any form of mindfulness meditation) to immerse one’s entire self in the feelings and sensations of the present moment. Thus OM is essentially a spiritual practice, in the tradition of Tantra and Yoga, rather than an overtly sexual one.

OM is practised in pairs by a receiver, who lies on her back on the floor, and a stroker, who kneels at her side and gently strokes her clitoris for 15 minutes. Both receiver and stroker focus their entire consciousness on the stroking sensation. According to its practitioners, of which there are over 10,000 worldwide, the OM technique encourages connection, vitality and wellness in both participants.

Yoga and Sex

Posted in Tantric sex with tags , , on November 7, 2014 by alvinavalon

YogaYoga is a healthy and sophisticated form of exercise, which in the Western world is mainly practiced by women. Historically, however, there is a very close connection between yoga and Tantric Sex, as William Broad pointed out in the New York Times: The discipline began as a sex cult… Hatha yoga — the parent of the styles now practiced around the globe — began as a branch of Tantra… Hatha originated as a way to speed the Tantric agenda. It used poses, deep breathing and stimulating acts — including intercourse — to hasten rapturous bliss.

Some yoga poses are more obviously related to Kamasutra-style sexual intercourse than others. The posture illustrated above is called yoganidrasana, and if performed naked it is one of the most provocative positions a woman can adopt. By allowing deep penetration of the yoni, the yoganidrasana posture can form the basis of prolonged and highly satisfying copulation if a suitably energetic male partner is available.

The Jewel of Shakti

mimi_miyagiIn the Tantric Goddess worship of ancient India, the clitoris was revered as a symbol of feminine power. The Sanskrit word for clitoris is yonimani, from yoni meaning vagina and mani, which literally means “jewel” but can also symbolically refer to the penis. Female worshipers sought to emulate the size and strength of the Goddess’s yonimani through constant exercise of the clitoris. A woman with a hyper-developed yonimani was referred to as a naugi, or pythoness, and – with an erect length of two inches or more – her penetrative skills were said to equal those of any man.

An example of a modern-day “pythoness” is Mimi Miyagi, pictured above. She is a physically and intellectually empowered female, who at various times has worked as a model, body-builder, actress and politician. She is best known today for her humanitarian work in support of underprivileged children in the Philippines, and for having campaigned to become Governor of Nevada in 2006. But earlier in her career, during the 1990s, she worked briefly in the adult film industry – revealing to the world that she has a truly enormous yonimani. At one point, body-building exercises and  steroid use caused it to grow to an estimated 5 centimetres in length. An empowered woman indeed!

The Kama Sutra size chart

Posted in Tantric sex with tags , , , on November 2, 2014 by alvinavalon

kamasutra size chartAccording to the Kama Sutra, men can be classified on the basis of the size of their penis, or lingam as it is called in Sanskrit. A person with a small penis is described as a hare-man, one with an average-sized penis is described as a bull-man, and one with an unusually large penis is described as a horse-man. Similarly, females can be classified according to the size of their yoni, or vagina. A woman with a small yoni is called a deer, one with an average-sized yoni is a mare and one with an unusually large yoni is an elephant. The Kama Sutra identifies nine types of Tantric union, based on each of the three lingam types copulating with each of the three yoni types.

Fifty Shades of Tantric Sex

Posted in Tantric sex with tags , , , on March 13, 2014 by alvinavalon

Fifty Shades of Tantric SexWhat is Tantric Sex? The phrase means different things to different people. Traditional Buddhist Tantra uses sexual symbolism as an aid to meditation. Hindu Tantrics engage in sexual rituals for spiritual purposes. In modern times Tantra has been conflated with the sexual philosophies of paganism, Taoism and other esoteric traditions. There are Tantric workshops for loving couples and for swinging singles. Modern-day Dakinis, Tantrikas and Goddesses offer sexual services for adventurous business people. It’s all become rather cynical and commercialized.

Here is a new picture book for adults, featuring cartoons and photomanipulations of the kind often featured on this blog, which brings you face to face with fifty (fictional) Tantric practitioners of different shades.

Fifty Shades of Tantric Sex is available from the U.S. Kindle Store or from Amazon UK and other Amazon sites.

Tantric Sex and Tantric Buddhism

Posted in Tantric sex with tags , , on January 19, 2014 by alvinavalon

Tantric sex and BuddhismModern Tantric teachers often downplay the role of Buddhism in Tantric sex, while teachers of Tantric Buddhism tend to downplay the role of sex in Buddhist practice. In fact the two – Tantric Sex and Tantric Buddhism – are inextricably linked, as John T. Houseman explains in his fascinating new book Great Bliss: Tantric Sex and the Path to Inner Awakening. This is the first complete modern instruction book on Tantric Buddhism, and the first on Buddhist sexual yoga.

The heart of the book is a first-ever translation from the Sanskrit of the Ninth Century master Shabara’s The Sadhana of Secret Vajravilasini, a masterpiece of the world’s spiritual-erotic literature, and an ideal text for sexual yoga practice. Great Bliss reveals thousand year-old secrets, and is a landmark contribution to the study and practice of Tantric sex in the West. The book includes hundreds of authentic practices, making it an almost inexhaustible resource for Tantra teachers and students.

John T. Houseman is a teacher of Tantric Buddhism in the tradition of the Indian siddhas. A student of many Tantric traditions for over thirty years, he trained as a lama under the guidance of the Tibetan master His Eminence Garchen Rinpoche, completing an intensive, solitary three-year retreat. John also trained with many Western Tantra teachers including Margot Anand. He received a Bachelor’s Degree with honors in Religion from Wesleyan University, where he studied Buddhism with Robert Thurman, and earned his master’s degree from Columbia University. For four years he served on the staff of Karma Triyana Dharmacakra monastery in Woodstock, New York, the North American headquarters of His Holiness the 17th Karmapa. His newly published book is the result of his twenty year search to find the original teachings of Tantric Buddhism.
