Classic Texts and Modern Practices

The term “sacred sex” may seem somewhat of an
oxymoron in western society, a contradiction in terms.
Suggesting that you can find your way to God through
sexual activity has been a bit like suggesting you can eat
your way to thin-ness or fuck your way to virginity.
Partaking in wildly passionate sex and seeking an intensely
spiritual life just haven’t been part of the same curriculum.
We’ve been taught that pursuing sexual pleasure, enjoyable
as that may be, is at best hedonistic and at worst damaging
for our souls. To be a highly spiritual person is to be
essentially sexless. It’s an either / or situation.

But that view is changing. The concept of sacred sex,
finding spiritual union through a sexual one, is slowly
gaining ground in North America. Our psyches are
certainly ripe for it. As a society we’re obsessed with sex.
In part it’s a lustily healthful obsession, a celebratory dance
of life’s great force, but much of it flounders in darkness
and neurosis – sex for power, sex for profit, sex for
oblivion. We use and abuse sex for everything from selling
soap to making or breaking political leaders.

At the same time there’s a spiritual hunger running rampant
through the land. The ache for meaning stretches from
radical through traditional—from new age spiritual to long-
established religious, from pagan to fundamentalist. We’re
all screaming for substance.

Well why not unite the two? Bring sex and spirit together
and find your magic! The idea’s definitely not a new one.

Ritualized sex has been an acknowledged sacred pathway
in Eastern philosophies for several thousand years. Tantra,
probably the most commonly known form of sacred
sexuality, has its home in branches of the Hindu and
Buddhist cultures of India and Tibet. Based on a belief that
the union of male and female principles(yin and yang, yab
and yum) will lead to enlightenment, traditional Tantra uses
a complex series of sounds, visualizations, breath control,
and sexual positions combined with prayerful thought to
reach the heights of godly bliss.

During the 19th century Tantric writings were introduced to
the west by British scholars and travelers, foremost among
them Sir Richard Burton, translator of three classic texts
that explain and illustrate the art of love with considerable
emphasis on sexual lovemaking positions: the Kama Sutra
and Ananga Ranga from India and the Perfumed Garden
from Arabia. Not surprising given the surface prudery of
the time, these works were greeted with a largely hostile
reception. Tantric practices were condemned as “orgiastic
rites too terrible for civilized men to hear”.

Today, despite our more open attitudes to sexuality, much
of this cult-like perception of Tantra persists. Partly this
may be due to traditional Tantra’s highly ritualized
religious aspects – worship and identification with
particular gods and goddesses, and mystical signs, symbols
and chanting. But perhaps an even bigger block is the
absolute necessity of retaining your aroused sexual energy
internally and the accompanying emphasis for men on not
ejaculating. This directly challenges our culture’s sexual
ideal of simultaneous genital orgasm. The practice of
arresting your sexual fever and turning it in and upward
rather than allowing it to flow out and down may seem
abnormal and contrived; going against the laws of nature
and our bodies. After all, the powerful release of a

Woman on Top
Woman on Top – “Tender Surrender” (variation – lying
face to face)

“She climbs upon you, the flowers dropping from her tousled hair, her
giggles turning to gasps; every time she bends to kiss your lips her
nipples pierce your chest.”
Love Teachings of Kama Sutra, by Vatsyayana, translated by Indra

Both men and women may have difficulty opening their
hearts and allowing themselves to be emotionally
vulnerable and transparent, but heart opening seems most
challenging for men. In this woman-on-top position the
man must surrender to his lady, making himself vulnerable
to her. Once you understand that control is the enemy of
ecstasy, you may begin to appreciate the benefits of
complete surrender to one another in lovemaking.

When the lady is on top, she gives more energy than she
takes. This is particularly beneficial if the man is
recovering from an illness or injury or is in need of rest. In
the variation shown here, the lovers are able to harmonize
their breath while they gaze lovingly into each other’s eyes.
A combination of harmonized breathing and eye gazing is
one of the easiest ways for lovers to circulate their hot
sexual energy. This position is also very effective when the
lingam is large and the yoni is small as the lady is in charge
of penetration and thrusting.
