Tantra sex, tantric sexuality and neo-tantra have very little in common with the Sanskrit traditions from which the language and some of the philosophy is derived.
Tantra as it is understood to most Westerners today is a sexual lifestyle defined by a spiritual understanding of erotic energy, the desire for profound emotional intimacy with sex partners, and the creation of rituals around lovemaking.
The Pleasure Mechanics is not a tantric sex site. We have studied Tantra as one source of sexual wisdom and practices, just as we have studied various forms of massage and many other sexual traditions from around the world.
We believe that some of the practices that Tantra sex is best known for – things like eye gazing, the yab yum position and yoni massage – are easily translatable to any kind of lifestyle and belief system. We choose to focus on the physical skills and allow you to find your way to seeing the divine in the eyes of your beloved!
