You've probably heard about the benefits of meditation. Why not make starting a meditation practice one of your New Year's resolutions? Sandy Scherschligt tells you how to get started.
The great thing about meditation is we enter into the very depth of our souls to discover a place of inner peace. Therefore, mediation can be practiced by people of different religions as well as those not currently practicing a religion. However entering into a meditative state does often put one in touch with some deeper questions about the true meaning of life and can give one a more spiritual outlook. Many people would like to meditate but feel that they don’t know how or don’t have the time to commit to it. I know that when something becomes a priority, I can always find the time. You may have to give up a lesser good for the greater good of meditation. It comes down to choices. The good news is that even just 15 minutes of meditation daily will be very beneficial. Read more

Yoga isn't just for exercise. It can also improve your sex life, says Steph Auteri.
People tend to fixate on very specific mental images when it comes to yoga and sex. They hear Yoga Sutra and think Kama Sutra. They remember that story they once read about the Orgasmic Meditation (OM) movement or naked yoga or yogasms. They picture the cheesy movie scenes where men watch a sex video and one of them drools, “wow, she must do yoga!” They envision Sting and Tantric sex…couples having intercourse while staring deeply into each other’s eyes, achieving levitation right before they experience multiple, simultaneous, universe-altering orgasms.
Or something like that.
I have never experienced simultaneous orgasm. And the closest I’ve ever come to levitation is that time I went into a headstand in yoga class, fell over, and magically landed in king pigeon pose. But I can share with you five ways in which yoga can improve your sex life. Read more

AS a gentle introduction to Tantric sex, this fun guide is good for beginners.
Tantric sex is easier than you think! Fancy hotting up and slowing down your sex life? Even if you haven't got hours to spend in the bedroom, Tantric sex may be the answer.
What is Tantric sex?
Tantric sex is an ancient Hindu practice that has been going for over 5,000 years, and means 'the weaving and expansion of energy'.
It's a slow form of sex that's said to increase intimacy and create a mind-body connection that can lead to powerful orgasms. Read more

Orgasmic Meditation is going mainstream, but Ami Angelowicz says there are seven things you should know before you sign up.
In a brave and epic fashion, Gawker writer Nitasha Tiku attended AND participated in an OM conference, living to pen the tale. For those of you who are not familiar, OM (orgasmic meditation) is a sequenced practice in which one partner gently strokes the other partner’s clitoris for 15 minutes. The result is said to be therapeutic, rather than sexual. The “stroking” allegedly activates the limbic system and releases a flood of oxytocin. The technique was originally billed as a spiritual-style practice like meditation, but as it gains popularity, it’s being presented as more of a “technological innovation” or “body-hack to happiness.” The “guru” of the technique, 46-year-old Nicole Daedone, guarantees that it’s profound whether you’re coupled or single. If you’re thinking OM and it’s parent company, OneTaste, sound cult-y, I wouldn’t argue with you. After reading Tiku’s exhaustive expose, I would describe an OM conference as Landmark Forum for the clitoris. The 1960′s free love culture is back; but for a fee and backed by technological sophistication! Tiku did a thorough job of demystifying the practice. Here are the most important things to know about OneTaste and the OM experience: Read more

The Male Deer Exercise is the best known male exercise from Taoist Chi Kung. It ends premature ejaculation and erectile dysfunction and promotes male full-body orgasm. Reinvigorating sexual energy means regaining the vitality of youth and giving a holistic benefit to your entire system. The Male Deer Exercise, done daily, will provide great benefits to men. They will reinvigorate their sexual energy, stimulate sperm production, exercise the prostate (and promote good prostate health), and reignite their libido.

Want to find out about Tantric sex? Here's how it's done.
Bees do it. Birds do it. Sting does it? Well, if you’ve heard anything about the famous musician, you know there is a very specialized way he “does it” with his wife, Trudie Styler! The former frontman for The Police has touted the benefits of tantric sex for years now, so we decided to find out — just what is tantric sex anyway?
“The word Tantra means ‘to manifest, to expand, to show and to weave,’” according to Discovery Health. “In this context, sex is thought to expand consciousness and to weave together the polarities of male (represented by the Hindu god, Shiva), and female (embodied by the Hindu goddess, Shakti), into a harmonious whole.” Read more

To answer the question of what Tantra is, Daniel Lefferts recommends five books about Tantric sex.
There's a gift you can give your partner that'll blow both your minds, bring you closer as a couple, possibly give you glimpse of spiritual enlightenment and won't cost you a penny: That's according to authors of these guides to tantric sex, an ancient sexual discipline inspired by Buddhist philosophy.
Tantric sex comes in a variety of forms, but as a general rule it is a much longer, slower, more conscious and more spiritual version of your average do-the-deed encounter. Tantric sex involves aspects of meditation, yoga and mindfulness and often requires a great deal of restraint — all in the service of elevating sex to an exercise of the soul as well as the body.

Forget crosswords or Sudoku: having an orgasm is more effective at giving the brain a workout, claims a leading neuroscientist.
It gives a whole new meaning to the word ‘brainteaser’.
Apparently orgasms give our brains a better workout than doing a crossword puzzle or a Sudoku.
The sensation increases brain activity across the whole organ whereas a puzzle activates only relatively localised regions, claims neuroscientist Professor Barry Komisaruk. Read more

D. Kay Hutchinson reveals how qi gong Tantric techniques can boost your sex life and thrill your partner.
Tantric sexuality is the method of infusing energy into every sensual interaction to connect your hearts, spirits and bodies to an energy greater than yourselves--thus it is a deeply spiritual and highly erotic way of sharing love with another person.
Thus, this sensual style of lovemaking is not about sexual gymnastics and long-enduring orgasmic experiences, but instead is about creating the greatest level of emotional, spiritual and physical intimacy with someone that you love and adore profoundly. Read more

The male orgasm may seem simple and straightforward compared to female orgasm, but Kristen Droesch reveals seven things you may not know about it.
Recently, we revealed 10 of the craziest things that have caused women to orgasm (they're doozies), but what about men's orgasms? Have you ever wondered why some guys don't ejaculate when they orgasm? Or whether a guy has a G-spot? Yeah, we did too. So we did a little digging, and came up with the seven eerie facts you need to know about the male orgasm.
1. Orgasm and ejaculation aren't the same thing: It's true; a man is capable of climaxing without ejaculating seminal fluid. In fact, a small percentage of men have "dry" orgasms only, as opposed to the majority who are blessed with the comb-O. Read more

Penis size isn't important to every woman, but it is important to some women. Svetlana Ivanova reveals two sex tips for men with a small penis which will allow them to satisfy any woman.
Many men are ashamed of having a small penis, sometimes with good reason. According to a recent survey, over 50% of women have dumped a partner or refused to have sex because of small penis size. However, an under-endowed man doesn’t have to be a bad lover. The good news is that when a small penis is used with maximum effect, it can still give a woman pleasure. Try these two proven tips to help you compensate for having a small penis. Read moreFor more on this topic, see my post 6 Penetrating Positions for a Small Penis.

If you've been wondering about Tantric sex, Jamie Beckman explains what it is and how to incorporate it into your sex life.
We can guess what comes to mind when we say "tantric sex": Sting. Ever since the musician made a drunken comment to an interviewer about having tantric sex for hours with his wife, Trudie Styler, the specifics of the tantra have become a bit murky. But don't fret: To enjoy everything tantric sex has to offer, you don't have to purchase an Oriental rug, shave your head or even listen to The Police. Read more

If all you know about Tantra has to do with Buddhism and Sting, think again. These Tantric tips are for anyone, and can help you have better sex in mind and body.
Sometimes sex can seem like a race toward orgasm. With so many tips, guides and articles for achieving orgasm ("guaranteed," "multiple" and "mind-blowing," get tossed around a lot) it’s no surprise that we sometimes forget that there’s more to sex than the finish line. Tantra, the Sanskrit word for "interwoven", puts sex in a different perspective. Tantric sex is about slowing down, connecting with your partner, and becoming orgasmic rather than focusing on achieving orgasm. It began in India as a form of yoga that exalted the union of men and women. Today, it's a way to experience your partner's body and mind in a way that for many people is completely new. Read more

Training for a 5k? Watching Hoarders reruns on Instant Netflix? Or if your exercise regimen is somewhere in between, take heart: Sex is aerobic activity, and it's great for cardiovascular health. Says Dr. Rachel Needle, a psychologist at the Center for Marital and Sexual Health of South Florida, “One act of intercourse is the exercise equivalent of 30 minutes of jogging and walking nine holes of golf." The benefits have only just begun...

Can true love really include sex with other people? Here's how to find out if it might work for you.
Most people would like to have her cake and eat it too, but is that really possible within the confines of a committed relationship? Some couples think so and, as a result, appear to live quite happily with each other while still having sex with other people.
While hard-and-fast statistics about open relationships are hard to come by, some experts estimate that up to 4 percent of couples practice polyamory, allowing themselves and their partners to seek sexual experience beyond the common boundaries of marriage. When open relationships work, they're based on trust, understanding and communication. When they don't, it's often because jealousy and resentment creep in.
If you're looking for a little sexual adventure, an open relationship can be a way to have your cake (each other) and other people on the side. But can true love really include sex with other people? Here's how to find out if it might work for you. Read more

Think of a sensual massage as a slow tease ... of sexier things to come.
Sure, you can turn up the heat in your relationship by forking over a handful of cash for an expensive couple's massage. Or you can take matters into your own hands — literally — and give your partner a sensual massage right in the comfort of your own home. After all, who knows your lover's pleasure points better than you?
Massages are great for circulation, the nervous system and, in general, easing stress. But that's not all a good rubdown can do, according to Massage Therapist Jeanetta Goddette. "Most of all, massage can make us feel loved," she says. "It enhances the intimate connection we share with our partner." Even novice masseurs can give a do-it-yourself rubdown a go; just follow these steps. Read more

In our society, it can be very hard for fat people to own their sexuality. Here, Marianne offers a guide for enjoying sex at any size, with any size partner.
Even when someone “cares about my health,” what it often really comes down to is that they do not want to have sex with a fat person: “You can’t make me want to fuck a fat person.”See my post The 6 Best Sex Positions for Large Couples for more on this topic.
This is actually true. If you don’t want to fuck me, I cannot force you to want to fuck me. And, indeed, I would not want to force you because that would be icky and gross and far too complicit in perpetuating rape culture for me to be into it. The thing that these folks don’t seem to get? There are actually plenty of people who want to have sex with fatties.
But for some reason, fat sex seems to be the most threatening topic ever for a whole lot of people. Fat sex gets fetishized and turned into a taboo topic. Maybe that’s why I’m so eager to talk about it all the time — because fat sex is often just sex like anyone else may be having. Read more

Nikki True describes four sex positions that will have you waving bye-bye to boring sex.
Good old missionary. It's the first sexual position you ever try and the one that you will do for the rest of your life. Sounds pretty boring if you ask me. Sex isn't just a one position activity in my opinion. Your bed and body can become an erotic jungle gym if you are open minded and ready to spice things up a little. I think of missionary like steak. Steak is nice and fulfilling but I don't want to eat steak all the time. I like to eat chicken too. I also like sides along with my steak. The same goes with my sexual positions. I love riding but I also love a good wheel barrel ride too. Here are some positions that will have you waving bye-bye to boring sex. Read more

The benefits of meditation are becoming well-known, but many people still don't try meditation because they believe some of the prevailing misconceptions about the practice. Deepak Chopra dispels seven of the most common meditation myths.
In the past 40 years, meditation has entered the mainstream of modern Western culture, and been prescribed by physicians and practiced by everyone from business executives, artists, and scientists to students, teachers, military personnel, and -- on a promising note -- politicians. Ohio Congressman Tim Ryan meditates every morning and has become a major advocate of mindfulness and meditation, as he describes in his book, A Mindful Nation: How a Simple Practice Can Help Us Reduce Stress, Improve Performance, and Recapture the American Spirit.
Despite the growing popularity of meditation, prevailing misconceptions about the practice are a barrier that prevents many people from trying meditation and receiving its profound benefits for the body, mind, and spirit. Here are seven of the most common meditation myths, dispelled. Read more

A simultaneous orgasm is sometimes considered the "Holy Grail" of sex. Serena Paige reveals how to improve your chances of achieving it.
A simultaneous orgasm can be a super hot and emotionally gratifying experience. Here’s how to achieve what is known as the “holy grail” of sex.
A simultaneous orgasm is something that a lot of couples strive for. This concept can even be something that people worry about on a constant basis. The most important thing to understand about a simultaneous orgasm is that it does not define your sex life or your relationship. People put way too much weight on climaxing at the same time.
Just because you and your partner to not have an orgasm the same time every time doesn’t mean that you have a problem in your sex life. However, if you would like to achieve a simultaneous orgasm, there are a few things that you can do in order to improve your chances. Read more

Expressing your emotions in a relationship isn't always easy, but it can be profoundly rewarding, says relationship coach Teresa Maples.
Do you find it hard to let yourself be vulnerable in a relationship? Fear of intimacy is the main reason people do not open up emotionally with another person. I define intimacy as feeling safe with another person when you expose who you are to them. Intimacy involves protecting your loved one rather than exploiting their vulnerabilities. And when I say intimacy, I don't just mean sex. There are a huge range of emotions and behaviors that enhance the intimacy, or deepening, of your relationship. Your own feelings are the key to discovering what intimacy-building behaviors will work for you. Read more

The 'Peg' position might seem tricky from the description given below, but it can actually be mastered quite quickly if you're not afraid to roll around the bed in your birthday suit for a while. Read more

Many couples rush through foreplay, too eager to get to the sex, but foreplay can often be the best part, says Cara Mason.
Traditionally foreplay was seen as more of a chore, something a man had to do to get a woman ready for sex, more of a necessary than a want.
Now, foreplay is seen as an integral part to sex, and more than that, it’s something we should all want to do.
It’s incredibly romantic and can build senses and sensation to unbelievable levels.
Of course, it’s true that some of the best sexual encounters we’ll ever have will be the impromptu ones that don’t involve foreplay but most of the time, foreplay should be a must! Read more
