Tantric Sex for Busy Couples is a refreshingly candid yet poetic glimpse into the possibilities that love evokes. Written from a woman’s point of view, the book also provides occasional comments from her husband’s quite different perspective. Drawing on Tantra, an ancient spiritual teaching from India, and Tai Chi, from China, the Daffners created Tantra Tai Chi, a set of easy, meditative and fun movements that enliven sexual energy, open the heart, and awaken a soul connection. Tantric sex embodies the same principles of centering, presence and energy awareness. This book shows couples how to use these principles to energize their relationship. It is filled with insights, inspiration and practical information about intimacy.
The basic exercises include “Solo Stillness,” which helps readers embrace the inner self; “Connected Pose,” a way for couples to simply be together; and the “Tantra Tai Chi Trilogy,” a tri-partite system for moving sexual energy throughout the body. These foundational exercises help readers prepare for the sexual practices described in the book, such as yin and yang ceremonies of sexual massage for both partners and “Peaceful Passion” — a sexual union that requires neither a high sex drive nor a Viagra-inspired erection.
Throughout these practices, readers are encouraged to maintain a sacred, respectful, loving, and ceremonial attitude toward their partners and, in the process, transform their relationship into a love affair.
“Sex is important nourishment for a marriage. This book provides worthwhile suggestions for accomplishing real intimacy with your partner.” Michele Weiner-Davis, author of The Sex Starved Marriage
