Energetic Sex for Pragmatists
Remember that Cosmo magazine article that talked about how Tantra and breathing could give you explosive orgasms? How about the urban legend where Sting has sex for eight-hour stints?
If you or a lover have ever experienced post-orgasmic spasms or “twitches” after lovemaking, or feelings of heat and tension in your lower back, hands, neck or throat… You might be more energetic in your sex life than you think! And if you’ve never experienced those things but would like to, you might be pleasantly surprised how easily energetic sex is to grasp and play with.
Regardless of your tolerance for words like “chakras” and “yoni”… Or if phrases like sacred masculine and sacred feminine seem too restrictive… There is a non-New Agey way to understand and incorporate ecstatic experiences into your bedroom routine regardless of who you sleep with or how you identify. And guess what? It’s surprisingly fun, easy, and explosive!
Join sex and relationship geek Reid Mihalko of ReidAboutSex.com for a frank, fun, and electrifying learning targeted for folks who aren’t New Agey. Reid promises to drop the woo-woo and leave his Sanskrit-to-English dictionary at home. And, for those of you who enjoy saying “Namasté” instead of “thank you,” Reid’s got you covered, too!
You will be introduced to:
Resonance Play—Reid’s particular views on how sexual energy “behaves” and how it “works,” as well as ways you can begin accessing more energetic awareness in the bedroom
A way to engage with sexual energy that isn’t about gender or polarity.
What Kriyas (“the twitchys”) can look like and what to do when you or a lover experiences them
Three possible approaches for engaging sexual energy and expanding it when exploring energetic sex with a partner or solo with yourself
How a wine glass can expand your lovemaking and sexual prowess
Simple breathing and “presence” techniques to build up energetic awareness
How to use “pressure play” and where so you can help unlock and activate points on your lover’s body to augment energetic experiences during lovemaking
A few advanced tips and tricks that will make you smile and your partner moan regardless of whether “the twitchys” happen or not!
Whatever your level of experience with sex that seems to be “more than just sex,” Reid’s humorous and informative instruction, sex education, and live demonstrations on this esoteric (and yet more common than you think) realm of energetic sex is not to be missed!
