Tell me about yourself

What inspired you to become a sex educator, sexologist and a Tantra expert?
I always had a strong sex drive but little understanding of how it really works. When I met my wife she was studying Tantra so we did a yearlong program together. It transformed our sex lives individually and collectively so thoroughly that we started teaching others to follow a similar path.
What inspires you?
Books, articles, music for sure. But even more so from applying consciousness and mindfulness to sexual encounters. My central interest is the anatomy and dynamics of sexual energy. So after we make love we talk and analyze what happened.
How has Tantra developed from Buddhist and Hindu teachings?
Not very accurate. Tantra came ﬁrst as a grassroots rebellion against these and other organized religions. The earliest Tantra writings created a path to enlightenment without dogma or intermediaries like priests or holy men.
Why is Tantra important to Buddhism and Hinduism?
Buddhism and Hinduism aren’t anywhere near as sex-positive as Tantra has always been. In contrast Tantra doesn’t separate sex and spirit. Though it wasn’t originally a sexual practice, it advocates the awareness and application of the physical, especially lifeforce energy, to spiritual growth. That’s so different from modern religions that in the West it’s become identiﬁed with sacred sexuality.
What is the difference between Tantric Sex and regular sex?
First, Tantric lovers treat their beloved as a reﬂection of the divine. A god or goddess. Next, love making happens in a sacred space with ritual practices like meditation, eyegazing, and intentionally calling in desired energies. Tantric sex is more conscious, more communication, more cooperation instead of male dominated. It’s longer because it’s focused on heightening sexual energy and amassing more pleasure instead of the goal of orgasms. Tantric lovers have multiple orgasms, many of them energy based instead of purely physical and triggered by more of the 31 erogenous zones than average lovers contact. When Tantric lovers choose to climax, women usually come ﬁrst and many times. Many say it’s slower which is true at times. But Tantric sex is changeable, sometimes slow, sometimes fast, and often interrupted by application of hands and mouths.
How can people experience the best orgasms with Tantra?
By taking time, building energy together, targeting erogenous zones, and synchronizing their motions to reach a series of pleasure peaks, ﬁrst alternately and eventually together.
What are the best Tantric sex positions?
The classic position is yab-yum, with her on his lap with her legs wrapped around his hips. The name means mother father because it depicts the Tantric creation myth, far removed from Adam and Eve. The Tantric view is that the divine beings Shiva and a Shakti create the world by making love in this position. Their secretions overﬂowed and solidiﬁed into the physical universe. But to ask the question actually shows confusion with Tantra which rarely speciﬁes postures and the Kama Sutra which has a chapter focusing on sex positions.
What can people do every day to experience Tantra?
Become more aware of their bodies, its sensations, its energies. They can do this my meditating before and during sex, practicing relaxation, and breathing more consciously.
