In practice, tantra is about enlightenment: to transcend both the sexual and spiritual planes by engaging in deeply meditative, spontaneous, and intimate sex. When you learn and practice tantra, you become more in-tune with your body, what gives it pleasure, and the way it feels pleasure. Plus, the energies you channel during tantric sex flow throughout your body and can intensify your orgasm. It can also be about creating a deeper, more harmonious bond with your partner. Tantra also allows you both to explore and expand all aspects of your personalities, so that you begin to truly know the other person inside and out.

Sacred Sexuality | Sunyata Satchitananda
The dramas, traumas and ecstasies about love, sex and orgasm have filled the pages of countless books, sparked reams of poetry and an infinite number of songs. Film plots are based mainly on these subjects and we find flimsily clad women adorning the covers of magazines. The titillating joy of orgasmic fulfillment had a festival devoted to it during pagan Rome. During this festival, adolescent boys could pick the name of an adolescent girl out of an urn and subsequently they would spend 3 days exploring the joys of sexual union. After those three days, they could decide if they would like to spend 1 year together and after one year, if they felt good together, then they could consider marriage.
What is Sacred Sexuality, and how is it experienced? Sacred Sexuality is the term given to sex that is extraordinary and distinguished by its spiritual effect which feels numinous and transcendent. Achieving it is a different process than what is done in typical sexual intercourse—which also activates and works with different aspects of awareness and produces a higher consciousness of sexual interaction. Sacred Sexuality is highly pleasurable and personally very fulfilling—and yet pleasure and personal sexual fulfillment are not its driving motivations.
