When you think of meditation, sex might not be the first thing that comes to mind. Instead you might picture celibate monks sitting incredibly still for insane lengths of time. Not exactly sexy.
7 Ways Meditation Can Help You Have Mind-Blowing Sex
Nor are many of the benefits of meditation that are usually advertised. Less stress, more mindfulness, and a better ability to live in the now all sound good, but they’re hard to really picture. They’re not tangible.
Great sex, on the other hand, is something we can all understand and something we all want more of. So let’s get right to how meditation can take your sex life to the next level.
What Meditation Can Do For Your Sex Life – One Man’s Story
Let’s start with the good part. After meditating twice a day for a year, one man described his sex life as “animalistic, raw and mind-blowing.” Despite his initial doubts and hesitations, he found the effects of meditation to be remarkable and undeniable. They included things like having more energy, more libido, and more control.
And the science backs up his claims. By reducing stress levels, meditation can bring down your levels of cortisol and adrenaline, which can both negatively impact your sex life by limiting both your desire and subsequent performance.
7 Ways Meditation Can Improve Your Sex Life
- More Energy
The number one thing holding back people’s sex lives is rest. 1 in 4 couples have sex less often because they’re too tired. So what better to put back some heat between the sheets, than the restful practice of meditation?
Through meditation you can get a deep, full rest during the day that will give you the energy you need to stay up all night.
- More and Stronger Orgasms
There is a reason we typically relax before engaging in extracurricular bedroom activities. We share a nice meal or watch a movie together, so that we can relax and get in the right mindset. Sexy and stressed are just two feelings that don’t go together.
In fact, more stress can actually physically prevent women from reaching orgasm and men from achieving erections. All that wining and dining really is important to giving you best the chance of having a fun and enjoyable sexual experience.
However, in much the same way as wine or a nice dinner, meditation can also make you feel more relaxed in your everyday life. By helping you reduce your levels of stress, you will be better prepared to make the most of those passionate moments. Plus, you will start producing more serotonin and dopamine, which can increase the intensity of your orgasms.
- More Intuitive
A big part of meditation is being able to let go. To let go of your thoughts and doubts, your stresses and worries, and to instead allow yourself to just do whatever feels natural, to free yourself of inhibition.
In the bedroom, this allows you to quit focusing on all the little things that distract you and that detract from the experience, making you a more focused and more intuitive lover.
- More Connection
Meditation also helps you to focus on a single thing. And while that may be your breath at first, it can eventually become your partner’s breath. You can focus entirely on them, look into their eyes, and fall into a perfect rhythm.
This creates greater intimacy between you and your partner, as you are no longer distracted and are better able to share the moment and forge a deeper connection. You will feel a greater sense of unity and sex will become more than just a physical and emotional act, it will become a spiritual one as well.
- More Independence
Oddly we’ve come to think of dependence as bringing us close together. But relying on someone to make you happy is a very dangerous thing that can often lead to great disappointment.
A better place to start is by being happy with yourself, which is something meditation can help you find. By being happy first, you no longer look to your partner to help complete you, allowing you to be more comfortable and more confident in the bedroom.
- More Honesty
Meditation can help you better understand what you want and what you need, which allows you to be more open and honest with your partner. By getting on the same page about what you want from any given sexual encounter, you greatly increase your chances of having a deeply satisfying experience.
- More Awareness
With everything we have going on these days, it’s hard to ever just be aware of the present moment. We are thinking about the future, what we have to get done tomorrow, or the past, what we didn’t do today. Between technological distractions and financial stresses, we are left in a constant state of distraction.
One of the best parts of meditation is being able to set that aside and to just be present. Living in the now may sound abstract, but put it into the context of your bedroom activities and you will immediately feel the difference. You shouldn’t be focusing on other things. You should be focused on the moment and your partner.
As you become more aware, you’ll be better able to understand and sense your partner’s needs and desires. A more aware lover is a better lover.
