We get asked this question constantly. The web is filled with misinformation and disinformation about this subject so we wanted to provide a clear and concise discussion that will lead you on your journey to this incredible new way of using your sex energy.
Indian guru, Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh, better known as Osho on regular sex: “It is just like sneezing out a good sneeze” The energy is thrown out. Tantric Sex is the polar opposite.
An adult’s sexuality has seven components:
- Gender identity
- Emotional Satisfaction
The first three components constitute our sexual identity, the second three comprise our sexual function, and the seventh is based on our personal reflection on the first six. (1)
Sex is the most powerful energy the body generates. What most people don’t know is that this energy can be transformed from a purely sexual act to become a higher energy. The higher the energy moves, the less sexuality remains in it. Through tantric sex you can reach a place where sex becomes simply love and compassion. This ultimate flowering is the divine energy, but the root remains sex.
As we learned in school, energy can not be destroyed, it can only be transformed. Additionally, energy can not be created. Destruction and creation are both beyond human capability. Not even a single atom can be destroyed.
With all this sexual energy inside of us, what happens if we repress it? What happens if we just don’t have sex? What happens if we don’t use this energy?
The more you fight the urge to feel sexual pleasure, the more you repress and suppress, the more sexual you become. Have you noticed if you go without “touching yourself” or feeling any sexual pleasure for a significant period of time, that your mind begins thinking more and more about it and it becomes increasingly difficult to ignore the urge? With men, the more days that pass without sexual pleasure, the more likely you are to have involuntary erections and after longer periods even involuntary ejaculation (you’ve heard of wet dreams). What happens as you repress sex is that the sex moves deeper into the your subconscious mind. Thoughts of sex will come into your mind more and more frequently for no reason. Have you ever been in church, in your car, or laying in bed trying to get to sleep (alone with your thoughts) and random images of sex pop into your mind? It is because your sexual urges are begin repressed and have moved into your subconscious mind.
Instead of repression, we need to turn the energy out and transform it. Not repressed, not indulged, but freed. (2)
Polarity & Flow
As we teach in ElectroSex courses, you can change the polarity of the flow of energy to provide increased stimulation and move energy in the “right direction”. Think of transforming sexual energy as changing the polarity of sex.
So, sex has to be transformed, neither repressed nor indulged. This energy needs to be changed from a biological reproductive force to a divine one. As we teach SexMagic courses, we are able to teach singles and couples how to transform this energy.
If we accept that sex is natural and sacred and let go of what we’ve been taught through religion and what we see in the media, we will be able to convert sex energy into love energy. In order to enter this place of acceptance, we need to be able to “flow” the energy through all of the Chakras (energy centers) in your body.
But, many of us have blockages caused by abuse, fear, lack of knowledge, loss of feeling, lack of trust, and other factors that prohibit or inhibit this flow of energy that is necessary for transformation. Through our courses, we can open up these Chakras.
Another inhibitor of flowing sexual energy is ego. This is the feeling that “I” am. This is a wall that says “you are you and I am I”. This creates distance between you and everyone else. Have you ever been having sex and are just thinking about yourself? How does this feel for me? Is my lingam (penis) hard enough? Is my yoni (vagina) drying out? When am I going to orgasm? Well, this is a common problem. This is the ego not allowing you to flow energy between you and your partner. No matter how close we are physically, there is still a gap between one another. As long as there is an “I” inside of you, the sense of “the other” will remain. As long as there is separation, there can be no transformation from sex to love. (3) We teach how to learn to let go of this ego and open up to becoming one with your lover.
