Sure you’ve heard about tantric sex – probably thanks to Sting and Trudie Tyler. But what exactly is tantric sex, and is it really the key to a better sex life?
Tantric sex is about enjoying intimacy with your partner by focusing on a higher level of satisfaction and togetherness. Think of it as more of a full body and mind experience than day-to-day sex. Like with meditation and yoga, which both have similar ancient roots, tantric sex is about the energy within yourself and connecting deeply with another person. Fans of tantric sex believe sex is much more satisfying than regular sex,

Maintaining eye contact and feeling each other’s bodies is key in tantric sex, so the Yab Yum position is a perfect place to start. The man sits cross-legged while the woman climbs on top and wraps her legs around him. The man rocks gently and can start off slow and gradually build up to one of tantric sex’s greatest gifts: simultaneous orgasm. The friction of touching bodies makes the moment of penetration more satisfying than jumping right in. His hands are free to roam and stimulate the body, and you’re both aligned to share kisses.
Another face-to-face position that leads to a lot of kissing and eye contact is the spooning position but with both partners facing together. It is easy to get into this position: just roll the missionary position on its side. Depending on your comfort level, one leg may stay under the man or both can be together rested across his legs. Focus on synchronising breaths and becoming in tune with each other’s movements.
Hop up onto the counter top or washing machine and wrap your legs around your man’s waist as he takes control of the situation by grabbing onto the hips or butt. Lean back and rest on your hands or elbows to create a bit of distance and enjoy an erotic view of your lover’s body.
Find a comfortable, low piece of furniture to rest on, but instead of laying flat like the Padlock position, raise the hips against his pelvis. He should have a firm grip on the butt to guide himself in. Hold the table to match his thrusts, and focus on synchronising your motions and breath.
The Double Decker
Among the great sex positions for mutual satisfaction and intimacy includes the woman laying on top while facing away from the man. Begin by sitting in reverse cowgirl position and lay back against his chest. Take control by pressing your feet against the bed to create a sliding motion. Enjoy his warm breathing on the back of the neck and listen for his cues to slow down or speed up.
Grab a chair and have him sit down. Slowly lower onto him until your feet touch the floor, reaching full penetration. Although you’re in the driver’s seat for this one, your man can get a good grip on your butt to guide your hips in rhythm. Speed up or slow down and guide each other to simultaneous orgasm.
The Ascent to Desire
This is quite the athletic sex position. Have your man pick you up into his arms while he’s standing. Holding his neck for support, lean back and work your hips as he holds onto your butt. It may not be for every couple, but it is exciting for those daring enough to try.
