In my Just Ask Joy post yesterday, one of Tantrachick’s readers brought up an interesting point. From his basic understanding of Tantra, he had somehow understood that kissing is not necessarily and important aspect of Tantra.
I was contemplating this last night and I came to some conclusions about why this might be. If you think about it, most of the information available online focuses on either the spiritual aspect of Tantra, the traditional ritual aspects that are a part of some forms of Tantra, or the strictly sexual aspects of Tantra such as yoni and lingam massage.
It seems that, as for what is available to the average person on the net, Tantric kissing is not receiving as much attention, which possibly makes it seem like kissing is not a focus in Tantra. Not so!
Once again, we must remember that there are many different approaches to Tantra. For this post, I will simply speak about my approach to Tantra. For me, kissing my lovers mouth and body with my lips and tongue and having him kiss my mouth and body with his lips and tongue are an important aspect of our ‘Tantric connection’.
To feel the soft touch of my lovers lips on any part of my body transports me to a trance-like state. In addition to the physical pleasure experienced when kissing, there is an energy exchange that you can literally feel when you connect your tongue with your lovers tongue.
I will not get into technique in this post…if someone is interested in learning about technique, please let me know and I will write a post focused on kissing techniques. What I want to focus on now is that kissing can be an integral part of your Tantra practice!
The Kama Sutra highlights eight different types of kisses, various Tantric texts, including Chandamaharosana Tantra (circa 700 CE) mentions kissing and kissing is often mentioned in references to healing Tao massage.
I suppose one of the reasons that kissing and Tantra are not as well connected on the internet is because a lot of what you have access to is professionally created…and not necessarily created by true Tantric lovers…
However, if you had a moment to part my curtains and peer into my bed chamber while my lover and I are in a Tantric trance, you would most definitely catch us kissing each other from head to toe and everywhere in between!
