Mindfulness is the key to unlocking soulful sex
What all of these techniques have in common is that they focus on concentration and the ability to understand your own desires. A key skill to do this is mindfulness which is the ability to acutely feel and understand a situation. Nowadays, our brains are flooded with endless streams of information like new stories and social posts. Our society encourages distraction through TV series, movies and just about anything else. But all of this diminishes our ability to focus. Mindfulness is thus that act of fighting against this ever-decreasing attention span and reclaiming this ability. And mindful sex can boost the amount of you pleasure you feel.
How can I improve mindfulness?
With all the distractions we have daily, it’s no surprise that we need to practice mindfulness to get better at it. The following techniques are relatively simple and don’t require a huge time commitment. If you have never tried them before, remember to go in with an open mind and patience. You may not notice results immediately, but you will if you stick with it.
These techniques can help you improve mindfulness:
1. Improving sex through mindfulness exercises
We have all heard of mindfulness exercises. There are plenty of apps out there that get you to focus for 15 minutes at the start of the day. Applying this same technique during sex can help keep you rooted in the moment and lead to more enjoyment. If you are looking for a bigger increase in mindfulness, you could consider a full mediation routine or class (see below).
2. Approaching soul sex with meditation
Your connection to sex can be improved through meditation. This may sound a little far-fetched but I encourage you to give it a try first. Meditation has long been associated with relieving stress and clearing the mind. The less stress or tense energy that is in your body the better your sex will be, whether on your own or with a partner. Meditation can also remove any distractions, meaning all you have left to think about is enjoying the moment.
3. Yoga can improve sexual performance
A lot of guys are not into yoga. I was also one of them for a long time. However, it has some really great benefits. For example, it can improve core strength – a lot of the poses use the same muscle groups as sexual positions, so yoga can improve sexual stamina and performance. As the poses use a wide range of motion, yoga can improve blood flow & circulation which can increase erection quality. Yoga is also great for reducing stress and muscle tension – a great basis for stronger orgasms.
4. Trying tantric sex for the soul
Tantric sex sounds more complicated and abstract than it actually is. Tantric sex combines meditation and breathing techniques to control the speed of sex and the overall sensation of pleasure. If you have already tried a yoga or meditation class, you will be surprised by how many elements are similar.
5. Soul sex through sex toy use
Part of soul searching is finding a new experience. Sexually speaking this means discovering a new sensation or type of pleasure. I think most of us guys leave a lot on the table. But being adventurous, you can unlock a new world of pleasure.
