Q&A about Semen & Tantric Sex
By

Q: Does the male not release semen in tantric sex? Please confirm as I am not sure. If yes, then how does one control the ejaculation?

A: Tantric sex offers options to enrich, expand and extend lovemaking in all its forms. There are practices for learning how to expand the sensations during sexual interactions to include the entire body, rather than being focused on the genitals only. One of the main ideas of tantric sex is to channel the energy through the chakras, and irrigating the entire subtle energy system of our body so that we may,  as Margot Anand so eloquently puts it, “transform lust into bliss”.

Both women and men practice techniques for staying relaxed in states of high arousal. Men in particular can extend their lovemaking endlessly when they are the master of their ship! Then they have a choice – whether to release semen or not, but they know how to enjoy orgasm that is not directly related to ejaculation. Sometimes he may ejaculate, other times not. Each is just as pleasurable as the other!

Tantra offers options, and not static rules. It is the path of ecstatic living and loving.
