The rise of sacred sex: how Britain went batty for ‘chakrubs’, tantric orgasms and crystal sex toys

It seems tantric sex, where couples make love for hours on end, is no longer the prerogative of Sting and Trudie Styler.

The Police frontman famously revealed tantric sex was the secret of their happy union.

But now, people up-and-down the UK are trying their hand – and other body parts – at it… and that's not the only thing.

Crystal sex toys made from "natural materials", sexual meditation and even sex doulas – helping people “birth their best orgasms” – are becoming somewhat mainstream.

Orgasmic meditation

One Taste believes people should live "orgasmically" – and offers organic meditation classes worldwide, including in London.

"During OM, one person strokes another person’s clitoris for 15 minutes with no goal other than to feel sensation," US-based One Taste – which also offers online coaching sessions – said. "Science and experience agree — orgasm can incline people towards empathy, connection, and generosity.

"Orgasm magnifies, intensifies, and vivifies everyday experience not by altering it, but by revealing its true nature. The implications for our health, happiness, and relationships are astounding."

Plus it might be a little more enjoyable than your usual yoga class at the gym…

Sexologist Annabelle Knight explains sacred sex

Neotantra or tantric sex is a practice that has been with us for more than 5,000 years.

It’s an ancient Hindu practice that is said to create waves of energy during sex that lead to increased levels of intimacy and a powerful mind and body connection.

It focuses on mantras, meditation and movement to lengthen lovemaking and help you make an even deeper connection with your partner.

Tantric sex is often cited as a practice that produces the most incredible, long lasting and deeply immersive orgasms, which for many is the reason they embark upon the sacred sexual journey of tantric sex in the first place.

Sacred sex is very slow; you focus on your breathing and the sexual energy you create from various positions. Much of tantric sex is about deep relaxation, eye contact, breathing, sensual touch and intimate massage. All of this leads to an extremely heightened sexual state, meaning you’re far more responsive to touch and much more aware of sexual stimulation.

With all this in mind, it’s no wonder that sacred sex is so popular. More and more couples want a deeper and more satisfying sexual experience that strengthens their relationship by creating strong physical and emotional bonds; something that tantric sex has been shown to do.

Tantric sex is something you can try at home; there are forums and sites to help you, all providing advice and tips, however, this may be overwhelming or confusing so it’s advisable to begin your journey with a professional. Make sure you choose a reliable and trustworthy practitioner or guru who will help guide you in a safe and secure environment.

Sex Dust

Moon Juice has now produced its famous Sex Dust in hot chocolate form – and it uses a plant which has been taken to improve fertility for centuries.

And, now, you can just mix your favourite hot chocolate drink with its powder.

Costing around £38, the drink is "an adaptogenic blend of lusty super-herbs and Shatavari that help combat the effects of stress to ignite your creative energy, in and out of the bedroom," Moon Juice said.

Shatavari is a species of asparagus common throughout Nepal, Sri Lanka, India and the Himalayas. People have relied on its libido-boosting properties for centuries.

Cheers to that!

Chakrubs

Sex toys made from natural crystal, the website which sells them say they "bring a sense of sacredness to your playtime".

"These beautiful, hand-crafted tools are created with the intention of opening oneself up to the healing properties crystals provide," it added, explaining the molecular structure of crystals made them perfect playthings for the bedroom.

The site's Yoni eggs (£44) are among its best sellers. Put into the vagina, one reviewer said hers was "like my new best friend."

We have to say we're pretty attached to our current best friend though – and putting rocks in our vaginas isn't at the very top of our sexual wish-list…


Shamanic womb healing

If you fancy shelling out £150 for three hours you can have your womb "healed".

This is a type of healing which draws on energies to identify and cure problems.

It involves singing and visualisations – and, apparently, feathers could be involved to clean negative energy.

We get that it's different strokes for different folks – but feathers and SINGING to our vaginas might just be a step too far.

Sexual doula

Ev'Yan Whitney is a sexual doula who, on her website, encourages "sexual liberation" among women.

"My mission is to breathe sensual light into you, to make you fully aware of your innate erotic nature, and to whisper to your soul words that’ll arouse the wild woman in you," she said.

She said her purpose was to help women "reclaim their sexual power".
