Beyond that “souped up nookie”

"Tell me more about the spiritual aspect of human sexuality."

— Anonymous

Why is sex so attractive to us? Is it, as some scientific views preach, merely animal instinct? According to Tantric views, sex is magnetic because we want the sweet taste of samadhi (higher consciousness), of light-love-bliss, of the transcendental, even if it is at first but a flash during sex. Meditation accepts that flash for what it is—a message about the nature of reality—and cultivates it into a transformed life.

The key that makes Tantric sex real Tantra and not, as one of our Buddhist meditation teachers put it, just “souped up nookie,” is whether the person is really sincere about making an effort to go beyond the self or not. Getting a little loose, a little open feels good. And it’s certainly healthy. But real Tantric sex blows your mind completely because it takes you beyond all of your conception of everyday reality—you taste the transcendental unity. Your life can never be the same.
