Tantric Magic?

|...Intamate contact is a form of self exspression and sharing. 

And it can be a form of yoga.  That is what I call 'tantric yoga', though
I'm sure my usage varies from the traditional.

|...1. Can you practice Tantic Magik in a monogamous relationship sucessfully.

That depends on the people involved and what you mean by 'Tantric Magick'
(or 'Tantrik Majik' if you like :>).  If both individuals have been condi-
tioned to reject monogamy, then monogamous relationship is very good vessel
for such interaction.  If both have (like most in Western culture) been
conditioned to regard monogamy as the standard, then monogamous relation-
ship will be more of a hindrance than a vehicle toward liberation.

|2. When you are in "an Orgy" is there a way to sheild myself from Other 
|peoples energy.

Yes, and you can either use tools/devices, such as charms, amulets, etc.,
or you can intentionally maintain a boundary-shield.  Such boundaries
are very important for those who have been trained to dissolve them.

|3. Now that I have become a Monogamous Beast, will that damage my 
|rituals or enhance them. Or in other words...can my rituals be as 
|powerful with two focusing of wills as it was with the focusing of 
|3 or more wills?

Very hard to say.  All depends upon your particular previous experience.
Rituals can be powerful with any number, though one will and, with the
right people, two or three are very stable.  Look into engineering and
the dynamics of form.  One pillar, two brings polarity, three brings
trinitarian unity when properly aligned, etc.  How well you two do as a
couple will depend much more on your ability to cooperate and communicate
than on anything else.  When conflict arises, address it directly and
don't avoid serious communication if you wish to continue working with
one another.

|I have also had a Pagan 'friend' tell me that Monogamy is a Christian 
|attribute and that I was turning my back on my Heritage.  What do you 
|feel on this subject.

Within the Western culture monogamy is associated with JCI values.
It was probably this about which your Neopagan friend was reacting.
I feel that (as many in alt.polyamory will tell you) each of us has
our particular needs and it is helpful when I do what I please and
leave my neighbor to do as she pleases.  If this includes monogamy
then so be it.  If it does not, fine.

Please note that chosen and contracted monogamy is a different experience
than preferred monogamy arising out of an open relationship.  I find that
I am a monogamous due to focus and intensity, not exclusion.  There is an
important difference between the two for me, and I maintain only open-
relationships presently.
