Generally, meditation and mindfulness can provide numerous health benefits to humans. Through these, stress levels and anxiety may reduce. Research suggests that meditation can improve your sex life by raising the urge for sex, self-confidence, and satisfaction. As reported by Cheryl Fraser, a psychologist and sex physician, people connect the mind and physical body during the process. It’s all about focusing on your concentration and putting your mind on anything you wish to address. Before discussing how to meditate sexually, let’s understand the meaning of sexual meditation. Defining Sexual Meditation Experts also refer to sexual meditation as mindfulness and meditation. The main idea is to have a sexual context filled with mindfulness skills. That means there’s no actual definition because it can mean a lot; being extremely mindful during a sex moment involves mindfulness and sexual components in a partnered exercise. How To Perform Sexual Meditation Sexual meditation or mindfulness can be achieved in several ways, either alone or with your partner. A study on mindfulness training showed how women with different sexual issues could be sorted. They were trained to calm down, shun negative energy, and remain present during intercourse. They were further trained to note body changes and sensations. Another research sampled both men and women to gauge how mindfulness and sexuality relate. It concluded that mindfulness improved sexual awareness and motivation. Here are some of the ways of practicing sexual meditation, as suggested by experts: Daily Mindfulness Practice This involves including meditation and mindfulness moments in your daily schedule. Begin with an overall and structured mindfulness performance. This could involve sitting by yourself and focusing mainly on your breathing. Otherwise, a meditation app, for example, Headspace or Calm, can help. You can adopt this habit in privacy by building the needed skills and understanding how to engage your mind, breath, plus other sensations. Work With Your Partner You can also involve your partner by acting back-to-back. For instance, you can stand or sit back-to-back to undergo a physical body scan (check how the body feels from head to toe through your mind). As you scan, note any tensed muscles or parts. Also, focus on the areas in contact with your significant other. Consider various aspects, such as temperature, texture, and pressure experienced during intercourse. Meditate With Eyes Open Advisably, closing the eyes during meditation is essential to avoid distractions from the surrounding. However, it’s not the case with sex in most instances since we might lose connection with our spouse or partner. This skill can be refined by discovering mindful instants without closing your eyes. Illustrations include standing or sitting and staring at a beautiful plant in your house and looking at its different parts. Fixing the eyes at a beautiful thing further from your bedroom can help. At that moment, more so when feeling as if being pulled away, try to look into their eyes. Do The Eye Contact Exercise Create a silent moment, sit next to your partner, and maintain eye contact with them for a few minutes. It’s even better gauzing into a single eye, unlike switching between both. If you feel uncomfortable, giggling is ok, but avoid talking. To advance this practice, try kissing with eyes remaining in contact and mainly focus on the sensations. A comforting feeling might follow while gazing at one another. Initiate A Sexier Thought Distraction Have you ever been distracted during intercourse? If you realize your mind is wandering when in the act, substitute the thought with a sexual imagination. Using erotic thoughts doesn’t mean getting yourself at that moment but helps get you closer to the real experience. At last, you’ll realize such practice may not be meaningful, hence sorting it by focusing on your partner’s smell or touch intensity. Have A ‘Slow Sex’ Practice Slowing down the mind in this speedy and fast-paced activity isn’t easy. It may be done once, but not often. For this reason, Fresher, a sex therapist, advises practicing slow sex every time. Try out sessions where one individual gives and the other takes. During this time, majorly concentrate on slow and erotic touch full of seduction. It would be best to train the mind and body to slow down, enhance curiosity, and better your mental focus. By doing so, you might notice some touches that you liked but went unnoticed before. The Bottom Line Sexual meditation generally centers on mindfulness and quietness as you focus on sex. It can be acted solo or partnered and doesn’t have to be guided. The technique involves resting your mind on thoughts, feelings, the moment at hand, and your feelings without judging them. If you’ve got your partner, increase the connection and beware of their presence. In sexual meditation, the result can be masturbation or intercourse to orgasm. However, it’s not a must for such to occur.
