Women want to enjoy sex, but their main problem usually stems from Western based religions or feelings of guilt and shame.
Women’s problems with sex generally fall in the following categories
- Loss of interest in sex
- Loss of sensations
- Painful intercourse
- Inability to reach orgasm
- Having weak or mild orgasms
- Weak internal muscles due to childbirth etc.
- Sexual health concerns
- Sexual guilt and shame
- Fear of intimacy
- Need to be in control
Loss of interest can arise from being too busy, overworked, having an insensitive lover who doesn’t know how to make you happy. The guilt and shame factor is deeply imbedded in our Western culture mainly perpetuated through religion and “osmosis” …the Western mind-set. In the East, the body and all its functions are considered beautiful and natural.
Frequent orgasms can benefit women’s sexual health tremendously. However, there is a vast difference in having an ordinary orgasm and having a tantric orgasm. Ordinary orgasms, which are the norm, are of short duration, isolated in the sex organs. Tantric sex orgasms involve the full body, mind and spirit, lasting for hours as well.
To obtain the benefits of a tantric orgasm, the shakti, or energy, the rising kundalini, must pierce each of the chakras (vortexes of energy in the subtle body) as it ascends the spinal cord. It must reach the brain’s central nervous system and endocrine command center – the hypothalamus and pituitary gland, which commands the changes that benefits our sexual health.
Frequent and powerful orgasms increase the level of the orgasm hormone, oxytocin. The oxytocin level is linked to the personality, passion, social skills and emotional quotient (EQ), all of which affects career, marriage, emotions and social life. Orgasms are very beneficial for sexual health because they empower our pituitary (brain function).
We benefit from tantra practices on the physical, spiritual and emotional levels.
