Ancient Tantric knowledge makes us aware of the importance of sex to keep the brain functioning well into older age. In fact, great sex is the most pleasurable way to keep the brain functioning at its peak.
Science is now starting to prove it in a small way.
There are some attempts being made to measure how sex hormones influence the brain. In fact, a breakthrough study at the University of Calgary –published Jan 2003 in the prestigious Science Journal — says that a hormone stimulated by sex may cause the production of new brain cells.
It would be interesting to see research done on Tantric lovemaking! It might be the next breakthrough…. In fact, during Tantric lovemaking you stimulate your body and your brain for much longer periods of time, and take it to higher levels than in regular sex.
Tantric sex requires complete presence to what is happening in your body and in your partner’s body. There are trillions of cells in the body, and all are involved in feeling sensations. The involvement is astronomical compared to that of regular sex.
So, it is easy to understand that if you have two or three hours of Tantric connection, you will have flooded your brain with pleasurable information that produces happy hormones and hormones that increase desire and bonding.
What can make your brain “sluggish” is being stuck in habits and routine. The brain loves newness, and Tantra suggests that you use different ways of connecting sexually, different positions, different ways of kissing, different places to make love in.
When you stay in the moment, you are as creative as children who are not habit bound yet.
Here is your Tantric tip:
Touch your lover with a different touch, for instance slower and more consciously than usual. Most women that I see in my sessions complain that their man moves his hands too fast and almost mechanically. Try a different way of touching and notice the results you are creating in your and her brain!
Have great sex and expand your brain!
