Orgasmic Consciousness Breath
by Suzie Hanuman

PRANA (Sanskrit) - " Life-force". A Yogic term for vitality and breath.
The name of the upward moving breath, which causes the spirit to evolve.
PRANAYAMA (Sanskrit) - The science of Prana. Yogic breathing practices
that are aids to Liberation.
Thank you to "Sexual Secrets" by Nik Douglas & Penny Slinger

Breath is life.  Mice breathe very fast - they live short lives. Tortoises
breathe very slowly - they live long lives. Breathing is not a conscious
activity for most humans.  We expect to just be able to do it. Yet the key
to greater health and vitality, experiences of  higher consciousness states
and the full body orgasm is mastery of the breath. Yogis place a great
emphasis on learning to deepen and lengthen the breath. Becoming conscious
of the breath and it's patterns is the first step in this process.

This is a simple but profound practice. Allow about 15 minutes for this
exercise. Wear loose clothing without a belt and allow at least an hour
since your last meal. Lie comfortably on the floor on your back in a quiet
place where you won't be disturbed.  Rest a few minutes and then begin to
notice your breath. How are you breathing? Through your mouth? Does your
chest rise or your belly? Notice.

After you've briefly observed yourself put your hands lightly on your
abdomen and begin to breath into your hands. Take long slow breaths
through your nose and visibly but gently force your belly to rise and fall
with the breath. You may really have to focus on this.  Don't breath into
your chest. This will be difficult for some people and easier for others.
Practice sustaining this slow, steady breathing making sure to observe the
gentle rising of the abdomen. Take really deep breaths. Make them slow
and deliberate. Slow them as much as possible. Keep it up for ten
minutes. Stay relaxed. Don't be frustrated with yourself if this is hard.
You're in the process of learning something new and valuable. If this is
easy for you just focus your awareness on your belly and breath as a
meditation practice.

Try practicing this as much as possible to help it become easier and freer.
Notice the times during your day that you might be breathing your old way.
When we are frightened or upset we become chest breathers. This leads to a
feedback loop of increased anxiety. In those moments attempt to
consciously change your breath right then and there. You will calm
yourself and be able to function much more effectively.

If you find yourself holding your breath take a long, slow belly breath and
clean out your system. Continue with the deep belly breath. THIS IS
unconsciously hold their breath as they are building their orgasmic
energy during lovemaking. This does NOT facilitate orgasm let alone deep,
full-body orgasm. If you notice that you're holding your breath during
lovemaking and at the time right before orgasm, relax, let go and expand
your abdomen with your breath. This deep belly breath opens the channels
to allow the full-body orgasm. It will help you relax and build orgasms
faster, too.

Next step: Practicing with a partner might be the next step in conscious
breathing for some of you. You can try this in several variations.

1) Spooning position: Spooning is just what it seems like. Stacked
spoons fit together. The two of you lie front to back with the person
behind placing a hand on the front person's heart center. Gently begin to
breath together. It usually is best for the slightly faster breather to
follow the slower breather. Often this is the man following the woman, but
there are exceptions.  Stay relaxed and non-goal oriented. Breath into
your bellies. Try to continue for five minutes. This is also an excellent
way to re-connect during or after an argument.

2) Face-to-face: This position can either be lying face-to-face or
sitting face-to-face. If you choose to sit, sit cross-legged as close as
you can get or in the yab-yum position. Yab-yum is when one person sits
cross-legged and the partner sits facing astride them with their legs
wrapped around behind their partner. You can support each other in this
position by putting the right hand on you partners lower back. It's also
wonderful to place your left hand on your partners heart center. Face each
other, eyes softly focused and open. Stay relaxed and non-goal oriented.
Breath into your bellies. Try to continue for at least five minutes.

Sexual Energy Ecstasy (Book)


by Miriam Serman

In our fantasies many of us dream about being pleasured to ecstasy by the
beloved. In reality, many women believe few men have the knowledge or
patience to accomplish this deed. My feeling is that many men really want
to give to women. Unfortunately, we don't know how to receive their love.

A curious paradox of our culture is that we have all been taught that to
give is better than to receive. The result is a nation of givers with few
who feel comfortable or accustomed to receive.  Witness even the simple
situation of being complimented. Most people will point out their
short-comings or say that someone else is more deserving rather than just
let the praise in and say "thank you".

If it is better to give than to receive, that implies that giving is good
and receiving, not so good. I know for myself this transferred into the
bedroom where my partner would want to give to me sexually. In the
beginning I would feel guilty, selfish or greedy when he would spend a lot
of time on me. There's no way his touch could feel really good when I was
already in doubt about my goodness. I felt extremely uncomfortable being
the focus of so much attention. I was accustomed to pleasing the man.
That was easy. I knew what to do. But to just receive his kisses and
strokes and not try to "do" anything back! Suddenly, I felt like I was
under a microscope.  I got performance anxiety. Surely I was taking too
long. He must be getting tired. . . or bored. What if I don't feel
enough? What if I don't orgasm? What if I look awkward? What if I'm too
tense? What if I make strange noises?

Yet in order to give, someone must receive. Gracious receiving is a gift
to the giver. Receiving loving touch is an art which can bring us
unimaginably closer to each other and to the God and Goddess within each of
us. Sexual receiving consists of two main parts: technique and
communication. Both can be learned and practiced on our journey to
expansive loving.

A woman's skin has more nerve endings than a man's, which may be why
most of us like to be touched all over, not just on the primary arousal
areas, before being entered. This can be done with hands, tongue, feathers,
scarves, etc., and with or without oil. A woman's Yoni, or sacred space,
is like a closed flower, sleeping, which must be coaxed open each time.
Direct (Yang) stimulation usually causes a woman's sexual energy to retreat.
However, a light touch (Yin) usually causes her energy to become curious
and so moves her toward the source adventurously.

Once a woman begins to relax and open, her juices usually begin to flow,
signaling her increased arousal. Not all women produce copious fluids,
especially after menopause. A personal lubricant is often useful.
However, Tantrikas recommend that before entering her Yoni with either
fingers or lingam, a man shows great respect by asking her permission to
enter. (This does not just mean the first time! It means always!) Or,
you can set up a non-verbal signal system so that at least it's not a
guessing game.

Obviously, the giver must learn some techniques. He can start with just a
few simple ideas. With good communication skills, the receiver can guide
without dictating.  In my estimation, what doesn't work is judgment and
criticism. "That doesn't feel good. I don't like that. You never do it
right. Why did you change what you were doing?" Men are emotionally
sensitive  and usually don't know what to do with their emotions so they
withdraw when they feel incompetent or made wrong. Feedback is essential
and the way remarks are phrased makes a world of difference. Gratitude and
encouragement usually move things in a satisfying direction.
