What Is Tantric Sex?
In Season 2 of the popular VH1 original series “Single Ladies,” leading lady Raquel and her love interest interacted in a steamy love scene that, at the time, was the talk of social media. Open to new experiences and completely infatuated with the new man in her life, Raquel was presented with the idea of participating in tantric sex.
A bit apprehensive at first, Raquel finally agreed and was lead by her partner in a series of breathing exercises, eye contact and intimate touching that eventually led to a heated scene of lovemaking. For many watching the show, the concept of tantric sex was foreign, leading many to wonder exactly what tantra is in the first place.
For many who are members of the ‘conscious community,’ the word and its philosophy isn’t a new concept, but for the average religion-bound individual the world of tantra is unknown.
