Sexual Position of The Month

One of The Tantra Chair’s ® very unique abilities is to take the average, every day sexual position and make it infinitely better. Imagine this position on a flat surface and you can immediately recognize the tremendous advantages of using The Tantra Chair ®.

The Tantra Chair ® works by displacing the body weight of the couple by way of the “Fulcrum and Lever” principle to create a unique sexual position.

The gentleman is sitting in a reclined position in the central contour of The Tantra Chair ® with his legs in a relaxed and stable position. The woman is resting her back on the man’s chest creating an incredible sense of intimacy as the man embraces her entire body. His hands are totally free and uninhibited as they move over the woman’s erogenous zones. Their faces are close to encourage sensual kisses and to maintain their presence in the moment. The sounds of ecstasy and the change in breathing patterns stimulate the auditory senses.

The woman, feeling completely nurtured and supported can move her pelvis with ease as she incorporates the quadriceps and the gluteus muscles. These muscle groups are among the largest and most powerful muscles in the human body. Her body is so comfortable and the movements are seemingly effortless which allows her to focus completely on the lovemaking experience. Her body is perfectly free to move in any way she can imagine creating a lovemaking experience that overwhelms the senses. The gentleman can also move his pelvis with ease by incorporating the legs and gluteus muscles. The unique angles in which the gentleman is entering her can overwhelm her senses. The gentleman will be able to thrust himself deeper than he normally would on a flat surface due to the unique angles that The Tantra Chair ® creates. Initially, we highly recommend that you ease into this position so that she can get used to the new angles and depths of penetration. It is not uncommon for a couple to experience deeper penetration of one to two inches however the woman is in total control of this and can determine her preferences easily.

Our intention in creating The Tantra Chair ® design was to encourage couples to honor their time together and to be more present and conscious during the lovemaking experience. This position embodies all of the qualities that are guaranteed to bring your relationship to new levels of appreciation!

The Female Orgasm

BLOG & NEWS POST BY TANTRA CHAIR

The female orgasm is a wonderful, beautiful thing. Because the subject of sex and women’s enjoyment of it was largely taboo until mere decades ago, it’s also a rather mysterious thing. Although men and women have been enjoying one another’s bodies for thousands of years, there are still so many things to be learned about the female body’s capacity for pleasure even today.

Read full post

Tapping into the Power of The Female Orgasm

A truly mind-blowing sensual experience is one that culminates in the utmost of pleasure for both partners, male or female. Because women are able to achieve multiple orgasms (several orgasms within minutes or even seconds of one another), understanding how orgasms are achieved and maximized allows you to build a capacity for long, tantric unions that can bring a woman to her peak time and time again.

The Female Orgasm

The physical effects of the female orgasm are very similar to those of the male. Stimulation of the proper areas of her body (typically the clitoris or G-spot) causes the body to react in a strong, physical manner. Her breath will start to come at a faster pace, her blood pressure and heart rates will go up, and tension will build in the sensitive areas of her body. When orgasm is reached, the muscles of her body contract (the vagina, uterus, and pelvic floor), and all the tension is released.

The majority of sexual positions in use by the average couple are all about stimulating the clitoris, the ultimate erogenous zone on a woman’s body. Like a man’s penis, this is the most sensitive part of the body; when done correctly, direct stimulation can bring a woman to the peak of her orgasm in a matter of seconds. Because of the clitoris’s location just above the opening to the vagina, it is easy to find and reach, no matter what position you choose. This makes it ideal for manual stimulation, oral stimulation, or stimulation by penetration.

The G-spot (or Grafenberg spot, as it is more formally known) is like the Holy Grail of a woman’s body. Most people know, from an intellectual standpoint, that it is located on the front wall of the vagina, about halfway between the opening of the vagina and the cervix. However, finding it isn’t always that simple. It’s typically best to rely on manual stimulation or one of the positions in The Tantra Chair designed for G-spot activity in order to best learn where and how the G-spot works.

Enjoying the Female Body and Female Orgasms

Although an orgasm is typically the goal of any sexual exploration, it is important to note that not all women can reach an orgasm the same way – and some may be unable to do it at all. The important thing is to get to know your partner intimately, so that every union can be fulfilling from an emotional and spiritual perspective, as well as the sexual one.

Of course, it’s also important to remember that some women prefer oral stimulation, while others react better to penetration from a variety of positions. One of the greatest things about The Tantra Chair and other tools for increasing the variability of positions is that you can learn together just how to reach those incredible heights.

A traditional romantic gift for monumental occasions such as these include everything from jewelry or lingerie to household appliances or a private dinner for two. All of these items have their time and place but if you’re seeking a unique, sensual and luxurious, romantic gift that will truly evolve your romantic relationship, the Tantra Chair may be the perfect choice.

What Makes a Wedding, Anniversary or Romantic Gift Special?

The best wedding or anniversary gifts are the ones that provide more than just a one-time benefit, and offer a way for the couple to grow closer together. Although the key to any successful relationship is to have independent and outside interests, this is the one time of year when unity should be stressed the most.

Gifts that are sensual in nature are also a great way to return to those early, passionate days of the relationship. It doesn’t matter whether you’re celebrating one, five, ten, or twenty years together – the physical union that you share is part of your growth and exploration as a couple. Giving a gift that encourages bedroom play in a manner that is comfortable for you both not only reinforces your physical connection, but it helps you to rekindle those emotional and spiritual connections, as well.

Features of the Tantra Chair

The primary reason that the Tantra Chair makes is one of the finest romantic gift ideas for a wedding or anniversary is that it fulfills all of the same great features of a more traditional gift. Like jewelry, it showcases a woman’s beauty. Like lingerie, it entices all of the senses, bringing passion into the bedroom simply by virtue of being there. Like a household appliance, The Tantra Chair fits easily into almost any décor, with a discreet, dual-arc design and a luxurious, synthesized leather covering. And like a private dinner for two, the Tantra Chair encourages those shared, special moments that can only exist between the two of you.

The Tantra Chair is a world-renowned and patented furniture design built to enhance and support the sacred positions of the Kama Sutra. If you and your loved one are familiar with the ancient Hindu texts, it’s possible to make deeper, stronger, and more lasting unions once you incorporate the chair into your sex life. For beginners, the Tantra Chair provides a great way to start exploring the Kama Sutra, or even to enjoy more traditional positions with proper body support and the right kind of pelvic tilt to take lovemaking to the next level.

The Gift of Love

No matter how long you’ve been with your partner or what type of sexual relationship you share, The Kama Sutra Chair remains one of the best luxury gift ideas on the market. There is no better way to showcase your love than to offer the highest levels of ecstasy, comfort, and intimacy made possible by this unique and incredible piece of furniture.  To begin your journey with us, we invite you to view our advanced sexual positions guide.

Tantra Chair Review

Sure there’s the traditional flowers, candy, jewelry, so on and so forth, but each suffers from a fatal underlying characteristic: they’re boring. You buy them not because you actually want to buy them – not because you’re excited about buying them – but rather because you’re expected to buy them.  You buy them because you’re inundated with marketing telling you these are the things that women want.

Except that they don’t.

Women don’t want meaningless gifts bestowed upon them purely for the sake of receiving them. Women want more.  They want passion, excitement, intrigue.  They want to be surprised.  And most importantly, they want to see that you actually put thought into whatever it is you’re giving.

And that, ladies and gentlemen, is what brings us to this article.  Two months ago I began a quest… a quest to seek out and procure the ultimate Valentine’s Day gift.  In doing so, I had two key goals. Number one, I wanted to give a gift that I was actually excited to give. Ideally, I wanted something that not only would my wife enjoy, but also something that would enhance our relationship (it is, after all, Valentine’s Day we’re talking about).  Secondly, I wanted a gift that my wife would never expect.  I’ve already noted my distaste for flower, candy and the like, so I wanted to find something completely different than what she would be expecting.  Two weeks into my quest, I was introduced to the Tantra Chair, and my quest for the ultimate Valentine’s Day gift came to an end.

As you’ve no doubt already surmised from its name, the Tantra Chair is a chair built for, you guessed it, lovemaking.  However, despite its purpose, the Tantra Chair isn’t an exotic sex toy you need to hide in a closet when not in use.  Rather, it’s a beautifully designed piece of furniture similar in style to a chaise lounge, with the added benefit that its seductive contours invite and encourage couples to try new positions and experience new sensations.  Through carefully planned curves and angles, the Tantra Chair makes conventional positions feel completely different and exciting, whereas lovemaking positions that typically require a signficant level of strength and flexibility are now significantly easier, more comfortable and more fluid.

Needless to say, it’s a design so appealing that I couldn’t wait until Valentine’s Day to give the Tantra Chair to my wife, so I caved in and gave it to her a month early.  But seeing as how today is Valentine’s Day, I thought it only fitting to share my experience with the Tantra Chair, which as I’ve come to learn, is the perfect way to add a new and incredibly fun dimension to your relationship not just one day, but 365 days a year.  If you’re looking for not only the ultimate Valentine’s Day gift but also the ultimate couple’s gift, read on to find out what makes The Tantra Chair so great.

BLOG & NEWS POST BY TANTRA CHAIR

First thing’s first: I have never owned a piece of furniture more elegant or functional than The Tantra Chair ®. Having lived out of a backpack for the better part of a decade, I pride myself on remaining unfettered by objects, prefer the great outdoors to a stuffy home, and rarely splurge on large purchases.

Tantra Chair Review by Nick Atlas

However, I also believe that there’s nothing more important than our health, that life is short, and that the pursuit of pleasure, peace and happiness should be a top priority for us all.

That having been said, I initially investigated furniture to enhance lovemaking after my partner and I both experienced back and joint pain following prolonged sessions between the sheets. As a tantric practitioner and scholar, it follows that I’m also very interested in the ergonomics and psycho-spiritual benefits of sex. While many of the postures of The Kama Sutra have passed me by, exploring meditative states during intercourse, enriching communication between my partner and I, and deepening our love for one another are just a few things accentuated by The Tantra Chair ®. We wish we had one in every room!

While there are a handful of related products on the market, after a little research it became obvious to us that there was no point in going cheap or settling for a knock off—in this case, you absolutely get what you pay for. The Tantra Chair’s ® patented dimensions cradle both of our bodies and effortlessly enable deeper penetration in any number of positions, each of which becomes a grand adventure. I don’t know if it’s sex the way we were designed to have it, or perhaps a step forward in our sexual evolution, but I do know that anyone and everyone that values their body and their sex life will appreciate The Tantra Chair ®, regardless of their age, flexibility, fitness level, etc.

As for its aesthetic, all I can say is that it’s almost a shame that it lives in our bedroom—it is nothing short of beautiful. After consulting with Zen By Design and receiving color swatches within days, we ordered ours in “Wine,” a lovely tone with hints of navy, charcoal, burgundy and maroon that looks majestic without being overbearing against our white walls and cream-colored carpet. The eco-conscious fabric (EnviroLeather) is tightly woven, incredibly stain-and-smudge resistant, and easy to wipe down after use. One of the most important factors influencing our decision to go with The Tantra Chair ® is that it’s sturdy as an ox—there isn’t the slightest creaking to be heard—yet weighs less than eighty pounds, thus it’s easily moved around if and when we want to shake things up.

If you’ve never had sex with your feet on the ground, you’re missing out! And, if you have tried it before, the logical next step is to experience it in as comfortable a position as possible—herein lies my favorite thing about The Tantra Chair ®. I find that the ability to stay grounded during sex allows me to remain centered and to last indefinitely. Likewise, my partner—particularly when she is on top—is essentially liberated. Her hips and legs are able to move much more freely than on any other surface, her knees remain bent at a relaxed and sustainable angle, and she can use the floor for leverage, all of which contributes to heightened pleasure for us both. Whether she leans forward or I sit upright, our hearts stay extraordinarily connected and at moments it feels as if there is simply no separation between us. Since we began making love in The Tantra Chair ®, every single time we have sex is the best, most intimate sex we’ve ever had.

All in all, I’m enamored of The Tantra Chair ® and thrilled with Zen By Design, who I believe is as genuine and inspired a company as I’ve encountered. Our customer service experience has been exceptional, and I can’t recommend them and their innovative, life-enhancing products enough. Thank you! And for anyone that is contemplating whether or not to purchase The Tantra Chair ®, not only will it exceed your expectations, I suspect you’ll never want to leave it and hope you fall in love with it as much as we have.

Discerning Specialist Tantra Chair Review

With some research it is easy to find all kinds of copy variants, however even without looking at them in person it is pretty clear they are inferior replicas. Many are just foam based with no real support structure and even some of the better copy attempts still have wrinkling issues while costing as much if not more than the original Tantra Chair ®.  Since I’m more discerning these days and not afraid to pay more for the best, I chose The Tantra Chair ® over all the other options as the quality noticeably stood out. Made by Zen By Design in The USA, they are not only the originators of The Tantra Chair ®, but have even patented the design as well. Although I like a minimalist look, it is nice that The Tantra Chair ® offers a good amount of colors and nailhead options to hone in your own custom look. To match my other bedroom furniture I just went with Ebony and no nailheads to keep it simple, but was able to request the addition of D-rings to the bottom for connection point options. Offhand they don’t offer them by default since it is one of their design goals that the chair looks classy enough to blend in anywhere in the house instead of looking like wild sex furniture that sticks out. That said I think the D-rings I ended up with overall hide well since they are attached on the underside of the chair. Despite planning to have it in our bedroom where vanilla looks don’t matter as much, it is a nice option that we could take it down to the living room and still not get crazy looks from visitors.

Upon receiving, it was great to see that The Tantra Chair ® looked every bit as beautiful as it does on the website and media. I love the tight clean look without any wrinkles that makes it appear much more high end. Since I’m not usually into contrasting stitching, I was briefly considering asking for black thread, however I noticed on the design notes that the intent is to accentuate the curved lines. Seeing that as a reasonable concept I decided to give it a try and I am happy I did as it does add pleasant highlights to the lines. One has to be pretty close to the chair before they start to perceive the contrast stitching. Even though I love me some leather, it is a wise choice for The Tantra Chair ® to use a synthesized leather. It is stain resistant, anti-microbial, overall easy to clean, more durable, and still has a nice, elegant leather texture. The quality is of the material is undeniably very high end.  The overall easy to clean feature is a huge plus since when using the chair as intended, you are absolutely going to get all kinds of fluids on it. As recommended I’ve just been using water with a little mild soap soon after use and it looks as good as new. The 4 feet screw on easily and that functionality is a nice touch of modularity.

For first impressions of actually being on The Tantra Chair, it feels nice and sturdy as hoped. The construction is built to last using hardwoods and other solid materials as expected from quality furniture. When using with a partner one of the first thoughts that comes to mind is that the chair just feels sexy. I’ve heard the saying before, but it doesn’t fully make sense until you actually experience it. This of course is an awesome starting point in regards to getting everyone in the mood and in the right mindset. If you feel uncomfortable, cheap, and awkward it doesn’t exactly promote sex. While experimenting with different sexual positions, all the effort that went into the exact curve dimensions of The Tantra Chair ® becomes very apparent. Between the high and low curve points, it adds a huge amount of position variety. Kate, like most women, has preferences when it comes depth and angles during sex so it is amazing how we can really control and dial those factors in with The Tantra Chair ®. It greatly enhances the good situations while also allowing us to avoid angles that may hurt under normal circumstances. The Tantra Chair ® is designed to make it easier and more comfortable to perform and enhance many sexual positions seen in The Kama Sutra. Even though the diversity of options is certainly appreciated, the big show position for us would be the ol’ classic missionary on The Tantra Chair ®.  With Kate sitting/laying down with her back against the high curve, I can face her while sitting in the central contour. It really emphasizes the advantages of the design. I like to start with both of us in the middle then we can shift towards the high curve which basically creates a ramp to have her fall onto me with the forces of gravity. Already using gravity to an advantage I can also gain a great amount of control due to having my feet on the ground resulting in enhanced depth and with a unique and pleasurable angle for both of us. This position is also a great example of how The Tantra Chair ® creates a lot body to body contact giving that ultra sexy feel. Your bodies will naturally want to embrace each other all while still being easy to caress, enhancing the feeling even further. It sounds cheesy, but the chair will literally bring you closer together. One simply cannot recreate this functionality on a bed or using pillows creatively which is why The Tantra Chair ® has provided all new pleasurable experiences for us.

As one can see on the position examples between our pictures (www.discerningspecialist.com) or the great media on The Tantra Chair ® website, the chair is highly intuitive to perform all kinds of positions and uses. The core shape of two different arc heights and a central contour seems to masterfully accommodate any position and it’s reverse counterpart. Although, since we aren’t too busted up yet I can’t comment fully on the concept of The Tantra Chair ® helping couples with physical limitations, however I can see how the enhanced control of positions and interaction could apply. It is not hard at all to get into a super comfortable positions letting The Tantra Chair ® do most the guidance while only small pelvic movements are needed for great pleasurable results. Even for folks who are plenty healthy, only needing minimal effort can certainly also be appreciated when it comes to having epic long sex sessions. Kate in particular was pleasantly surprised where she thought The Tantra Chair ® looked nice and all, but felt that the concept appeared a bit gimmicky initially. After one use however, she was sold for life due to how much she enjoyed it. We already had a good sex life so it is a lovely treat to see The Tantra Chair ® managed to make it even better. Sometimes we find it is good for us to have some vanilla sex as opposed to heavy BDSM all the time, so it nice that the chair lets us mix it up while definitely not being boring. Even though neither of us are big into The Kama Sutra offhand, feeling the majority of the positions fall more under the concept of “look at what I can do!” rather than actually being pleasurable, The Tantra Chair ® does such a good job it makes us want to revisit and experiment with many positions we felt weren’t practical before. Not to be forgotten, although the D-rings allow for some BDSM fun on The Tantra Chair ® as is, I’m very happy with the results combining it with the SM-Cube. So far it seems to be a wonderful way to blend some of the best sexual position options of The Tantra Chair ® with the excellent bondage options of the SM-Cube. As a fellow designer I can appreciate the small quality details and the general form vs. function balance that The Tantra Chair ® has made. Inspired by the female form, it shows in a classy and sexy way while still being highly functional. The cost of The Tantra Chair ® is definitely going to be a barrier for many, but it is also a classic example of you get what you pay for. Being the original creators, every detailed decision of The Tantra Chair ® comes from research and experience while the illegal copy versions are basically creating half ass-ed attempts with changes due to laziness or cost cutting.  Even with cost in mind, I’m happy to say The Tantra Chair ® has met or exceeded all of our expectations including the customer service. With the manufacturing being in the USA it is great to see that local manufacturing can still be a sign of quality and the fact that the actual creator/company president, AJ Vitaro, is contactable and a super nice guy!

You’ve probably heard all kinds of variants of “x” product will add fire to your sex life or rekindle your relationship and I’m with you. I’ve always thought that sounded ridiculous. Thus, I take it pretty seriously that so far The Tantra Chair ® is the only product that has ever delivered on such promises for us. There is certainly something to be said that out of all the high quality gear we have, Kate currently declares The Tantra Chair ® her absolute favorite.

Sex and Well Being

BLOG & NEWS POST BY TANTRA CHAIR

Being in a healthy sexual relationship means that we recognize the fact that humans are sexual beings, and we should celebrate our sexuality and the benefits that come along with it, emotionally, physically and spiritually. Needless to say, having a healthy sex life enriches our lives in many positive ways….

allowing us to enjoy our sexual intimacy without feeling fear, guilt or shame. Being in sexual relationships allows us to give and receive pleasure,emotion and affection by sharing fun activities, exchanging warm touches and joining in physical intimacy.

Have you been feeling stressed out lately? Well, you could start doing some yoga, have a glass of red wine, have a cry fest on your favorite shrink’s sofa, or you could hit the sack and have mind blowing sex with your partner. You heard it right! Sex is the number one scientifically proven stress-buster of all time. Needless to say, your blood pressure is sure to hit the ceiling while you’re doing the deed, but being in a healthy sexual relationship will lower your blood pressure levels with time.

Healthier Sleep
Oxytocin is a chemical which is released during orgasm, which is one of the main reasons why your man dozes off after you’ve rocked his world. But there is a good side to this chemical as well, Oxytocin promotes good sleep, which consequently influences good overall health and a stable blood pressure, so you guys can stick around long enough for round two.

Fewer Colds
There’s nothing sexy about having an annoying cold, but getting hot and bothered about it won’t help your cause either. Studies have now revealed that people who romp the sack more often have fewer instances of colds, fever, or running noses. That’s because having frequent sex raises the levels of immunoglobulin A (try spelling that without a dictionary), which is an antibody that helps to prevent common diseases.

Natural Pain Killer
More on Oxytocin, the chemical which is released during intercourse, increases endorphins in the body which, in turn, decreases pain, especially headaches.

Lighter Periods
Whenever a woman has an orgasm her uterus contracts, which helps rid the body of certain compounds that cause cramps. Having an increased number of uterine contractions helps end a period faster, by expelling blood and tissue faster than normal. Also, going horizontal while you are menstruating can also help decrease certain health risks, such as, endometriosis, which is a common condition which leads to pain in the pelvis, especially during sexual intercourse.

Bottom Line
So, there you have it, the reasons why every man and woman should be in a healthy sexual relationship just to name a few!

What is Tantra?

Tantra comes from the Sanskrit words ‘tanoti’ which means “to stretch” and “Trayati” which means “to free or liberate”. So, the word Tantra basically means to expand the frontiers of apprehension and attain spiritual knowledge and liberation from the material world.

The basic principle of Tantra is unity, which can be expressed in various forms, such as, the unity of self or to be in unity with the world.

The History of Tantra
Buddhists mainly Vajrayana Buddhists have always said that tantric practices were initially expounded by the Buddha. And there is a story that goes with the legend too; according to them, a king once approached Gautama Buddha and confessed that his responsibilities of being king did not allow him leave his birthright and start off his spiritual journey as a monk. He also complained how being in a privileged position, he was constantly surrounded with all sorts of temptations and which made his path to enlightenment even harder if he ever chose to take it. According to his followers, the Buddha responded by teaching the king Tantra, which enabled him to transform his physical pleasures into a form of transcendent realization. Since then, both Chinese versions of the Mahayana Buddhism, such as, Pure Land and Zen practice tantra but their applications are not as elaborate as they are in the Tibetan Tantra.

Tantric Yoga
Yoga is said to be the technical application of the tantric principles, where it is believed that Tantra is the mother, while yoga is the son. In other words, yoga is the practical and methodical expression of the Tantric practice. By practicing yoga, a person can put themselves in a state of deliberate resonance with universal energies to achieve a higher state of spirituality. Whether a person uses Hatha, Mantra or some other Tantric practice, the main focus of working with these energies is for the individual to transform themselves into well balanced beings, whose souls are purified of negative thoughts, hence clearing the pathways of pure energy or “Nadis” along with the energy centers, which are also known as “Chakras”. Tantric yoga is mainly practiced so that an individual’s Kundalini Shakti can rise and the ultimate self-realization can occur.

Who are Shiva and Shakti?
While discussing Tantra and the concept of attaining spiritual unity, it is necessary to include both Shiva and Shakti, who represent both the masculine and feminine archetypes within ancient Hindu symbolism. While Shiva, who represents the man, is pure consciousness, Shakti, the woman, on the other hand is the sole power of creation. This means that she is basically the energy which combines with his power of thought before manifesting itself in the physical world.

Health Benefits of Sexual Intimacy

BLOG & NEWS POST BY TANTRA CHAIR

Sexual intimacy is not a tangible thing but rather, it is a journey. Intimacy and especially sexual intimacy takes place over time and is ever changing. As a matter of fact, stagnation is the one thing which often kills sexual intimacy. Sexual intimacy is the one form of intimacy which most people are familiar with.

Read full post

That being said, sexual intimacy includes the use of various sensuous activities and is considered as much more than just two people having sexual intercourse, which is why it is considered as a big topic. Research suggests that everything from kissing, to hugging and cuddling and even sex has its health benefits, along with it being a critical part of being in a consenting relationship. Sexual intimacy can do wonders for your body, mind and spirit. In other words, good sex is good for you, and these are the reasons why.

Longevity
Now, before all the men start rolling their eyes at this suggestion, latest research has found that having good intimate sex contributes to the longevity and virility of both men and women. So, it looks like men have a better chance of gaining more than just a contented wife from sharing their feelings. The research which was documented by the British Medical Journal stated that the risk of death was almost halved in those men who had reported having an orgasm more frequently than other men who experienced lesser sexual activity.

Get a Toned Body
Are you one of those people who constantly complain about how boring exercising alone is? Well, indulging in just half an hour of sexual activity is enough to burn around 150 calories, which also happens to be just about the same amount you would be shedding in a ten minute run on the treadmill.

Glowing Skin
Are you fed up of using those expensive face creams, serums and what not? Sexual activity is able to increase blood circulation as well as the oxygenation of the blood, which means a post-coital glow and a brighter complexion for you. Okay, so the glowing skin might not last for long, but there are other longer lasting benefits of sex. For instance, having an orgasm is able to trigger a rush of endorphins and growth hormones such as, DHEA, which heals the damage that is caused to the skin by over exposure to the sun and so on. In fact, a recent Scottish study has revealed that people who have sex every other day look 10 to 12 years younger than those who aren’t getting down. And if crow’s feet concerns you, all you need is some alone time with your lover to make it go away, or at least stall it for a while.

Stress Relief
Believe it or not, back in 2010, the Health Minister of Brazil recommended sexual intimacy as a quick fix for the country’s high blood pressure problem. So, there you go!

Ending Note
Time and time again, new studies have been brought to our attention which states that the benefits of sexual intimacy are very real. That being said, scientists also emphasize that it is almost always the quality, rather than the quantity of sex that is responsible for invoking the various benefits of sexual intimacy.

fencing & diplomacy; linguistics, writing & translating; cartography, geography, Egyptology and ethnology; soldiering, pilgriming, exploring & worldwide traveling.  Sir Richard Francis Burton was born on March 19, 1821 and died on October 20, 1890. In his 69 years of life (the universe can be silly in that regard), he experienced and accomplished more than most others ever have or will. Here’s a partial list of his most notable feats: Burton was a Captain in the East Indian Company. He served in India as well as a later stint in the Crimean War. He was also commissioned by the Royal Geographical Society to lead an expedition of Africa’s east coast. He traveled with John Hanning Speke and they became the first Europeans to search Africa’s Great Lakes, looking for the Nile’s source. He became a Fellow of the RGS and was dubbed a Knight (KCMG) at age 65, four years before he died of a heart attack.

When Burton was 32, he planned and accomplished an authentic pilgrimage to Mecca, disguised as a native. At the time, most Europeans weren’t even aware of the pilgrimages. He was one of the first Europeans to ever accomplish this, and his writings of the experience have been famous ever since. The work is called Personal Narrative of a Pilgrimage to El-Medinah and Meccah (1855-56).

Burton was fascinated with Egypt, and with sex. He delivered a brutally uncensored translation of Antoine Galland’s The Arabian Nights. This type of literature was looked upon by many in his conservative British society as pornography. In fact, there was the Obscene Publications Act of 1857 that promised hefty jail sentences to publishers of “filthy” literature. Burton, undeterred, proceeded to join forces with Forster Fitzgerald Arbuthnot and form a society of their own: The Kama Shastra Society. This society allowed its members to share access to books and publications that would be considered illegal in mainstream society.

And of course, Sir Richard Francis Burton did in fact translate The Kama Sutra into English; perhaps his best known (and most appreciated) accomplishment. He did this, too, with the assistance of Forster Fitzgerald Arbuthnot. The Kama Shastra Society first published their co-translation of the Kama Sutra in 1883. Sir Richard Francis Burton was a man on a mission to explore. He dedicated equal enthusiasm to his explorations of Africa’s east coast as he did to his explorations of writing. He was fascinated with sexual practices, leading many to question his own sexual identity and preferences. Regardless of his tastes, he was an astonishingly capable man who lived life to the fullest. He learned, explored, traveled, wrote and thought extensively – and always with obvious defiance toward censorship.

Libido Boosting Foods

BLOG & NEWS POST BY TANTRA CHAIR

If you’re looking for ways to heat up your sex life and boost libido, then it’s definitely important to think about the foods you’re eating. Nutrition has just about everything to do with health, and your health has a lot to do with your libido.  Choosing the right foods will supply your body with nutrients that will pump up your sex drive – and empower your performance between the arcs of The Tantra Chair. Here are 5 sexy foods that boost libido.

Raw Oysters
We’ve all heard that raw oysters are a classic aphrodisiac. It turns out that they are loaded with zinc, the substance that Dr. Oz calls the “ultimate sex mineral”. Testosterone and sperm are both manufactured more vigorously when a lot of zinc is present. Oysters are also heavy with dopamine, a pleasure hormone associated with libido increases.

Succulent Fruits and Vegetables
Succulent fruits, like strawberries, mangoes and peaches contain a lot of vitamins, minerals and phytonutrients that are easily absorbed into the blood stream. Make sure you eat organically grown fruits and vegetables and you are guaranteed to increase your overall vitality. If your cells are nurtured and empowered from the right energy sources, your libido is guaranteed to skyrocket!

Raw Chocolate
It’s a fact that the cacao in raw chocolate has chemicals that charge up your sex drive. Specifically, they are theobromine and phenylalanine. Theobromine produces a stimulating effect, like caffeine. Phenylalanine is the feel-good chemical that makes women (and men too!) feel more loving and harmonious. These two love chemicals get together and make raw chocolate one of the most enticing aphrodisiacs of all!

Garlic
Well, not all libido foods can be sweet and extra delicious. Garlic makes the list too. That’s because it is a plentiful source of allicin. Allicin is a chemical that makes your blood vessels dilate, increasing blood flow volume, especially to the sexual organs.

Watermelon
Watermelon has a really important sex nutrient in it! It’s called citrulline. You see, citrulline is converted, inside your body, to arginine, an amino acid. Arginine helps to increase nitric oxide levels, which also dilates blood vessels, increasing blood flow. This is a common holistic treatment for erectile dysfunction and an array of other sex-based challenges.

Making the choice to eat certain foods can pump up your libido and make you a more satisfying, and satisfied sex partner. When your body is in harmony, your libido will increase naturally (often exponentially) and proper dietary intake is vital to a healthy and happy sex life.

The Kama Sutra

BLOG & NEWS POST BY TANTRA CHAIR

The Kama Sutra is said to be an ancient text which originated in India and is considered by many modern day scientists and experts to be the standard work on sexual behavior. Originally written in the Sanskrit language by Vātsyāyana, Kama basically means ‘to love’ and Sutra means ‘a manual.’

So when one combines the two, the Kama Sutra is in essence, a lovemaking manual.

The History of Kama Sutra
Kama Sutra also goes by the lessor known name of Kama Shastra, and is one of the three ancient texts that were written in Sanskrit in an attempt to describe what the acceptable goals in the life of person should be. The Indian texts are therefore solely devoted to ‘Karma” which is a legitimate goal, but less exalted as compared to the goal of “Artha” which means power. Both of these aspirations are considered secondary only to the pursuit of “Dharma” which refers to moral value and is considered to be the most worthy of accomplishments. The creation of the Kama Sutra came out of the need for people to have and know the methods of creating the next generation of society, both efficiently and of course, pleasurably. Since creating offspring is the most vital aspect of any civilization, the Kama Sutra was written to provide people with the physical, spiritual and emotional tools necessary to reach their goals. Legend has it, that Nandi, a companion of the god Shiva was inspired to write the original version of The Kama Sutra after once overhearing Shiva make love to his wife, Parvati, which can be dated back to the fourth century. Vatsayana became famous for being a respected articular on the Sutras that were originally passed down by The Buddha to mankind in the attempt to assist them with their trials and tribulations. However, the version of Vatsayana incorporates the works of his own observations on Hindu society as well as the works of other ancient scholars, which is widely accepted and honored by Indian Tradition.

The Content of the Kama Sutra
Even though the Kama Sutra is now associated with erotica in The West, it is not the only topic in the content of the time-honored, ancient text. The acts of lovemaking are further divided into eight different methods, with each of the eight methods able to be performed in eight different sexual positions. There are 64 various parts of love depicted in the Kama Sutra, comprising of both heterosexual and homosexual acts of sexual gratification. These 64 sections may also be described as the ways in which one can strengthen the intimate connection with their partner. Apart from that, there are also 35 chapters that are solely dedicated on the various ways in which one can attract a spouse, and on how to be a good partner. Even in today’s world, there are many people who still follow the philosophy of this ancient text and believe it to be an inspiring work of art that helps to transcend the physical world.
