I used to think Tantric Massage was only for professionals who want to offer sexological bodywork to clients for a living.
However, then I discovered it has another incredible potential that not so many people consider. It is an absolutely amazing tool for couples to learn together to upgrade their love life!
Tantric massage is becoming a big thing.
For men, the ubiquitous “happy ending massage” has been around in many societies for a long time, though mostly for relief of built-up sexual tension rather than any kind of tantric experience. So for men to go for a tantric massage is not a big leap of the imagination. It’s simply the next step.
But on the other hand… for a woman to go and receive a massage for her sexual pleasure from a therapist she doesn’t know is a pretty new concept in most places.
There seems to be a part within all of us that longs to open up more. Whether we desire a more open and flexible body, or to feel more courageous and do new things. Possibly you wish you took more risks to reach out and make connections. Or maybe you yearn to express yourself in public.
Tantra is a life path that gives many methods to help people overcome fears and resistances and find ways to open up more. This is not just in modern neo-Tantra. In ancient days we hear of wild “dakinis" and “aghoris”: These were tantriks who walked around naked and lived in graveyards, made love in public and generally flaunted all cultural taboos. OK, so these are perhaps not forms of being open that you find yourself longing for, but they show that this history of Tantra was to find ways to embody freedom within this human life.
