Taoist erotic massage is a sexual experience which involves breathing and genital touching, and stimulates altered states of transformation in those who receive it.
The receiver needs to be actively disposed and in constant communication with the masseur.
Alternating states of pleasure and consciousness can awaken intense emotions.
Before the massage there is a dialogue where the masseur gives instructions to the client who informs the masseur of his concerns and goals.
In addition to pleasure, it provides very valuable information on fears, blockages or hidden patterns. This allows for an intervention through coaching to enable the client to integrate the experience and what he has learned into his sexual and partnership relations and into his life in general.
Taoist Erotic Massage is full-body massage that can include prolonged and creative genital stimulation. Recipients are encouraged to breathe deeply, relaxing into the sensation. The massage is typically climaxed with a staccato breathing pattern, a full-body clench and release, and a period of meditation.
Taoist Erotic Massage strokes explore the range of sensation that is possible, waking the neural network. Such touch can assist us in bringing aliveness to this core part of our selves, expanding the capacity for feeling, and giving erotic energy an honoured role in our bodies and our lives.
Experiencing full-body touch without having to be concerned about a partner’s pleasure, the person receiving reaches adeep state of internal awareness. Practitioners of this art can access an inner certainty, along with profound pleasure and ecstatic states. For partners, sharing this practice can be deeply bonding, allowing those with divergent desires to meet in a place of bliss.
For survivors of sexual abuse and others who feel cut off from erotic empowerment, navigating desire and communicating choice in highly charged sexual exchanges can feel impossible. Taoist Erotic Massage provides an arena in which the person receiving can stay safe and focused. All touch is directed by the receiver, who is encouraged to breathe into body sensation and decide, moment to moment, what their body wants.
Pleasure itself is healing. Learning to choose pleasure instead of suffering is the first key to erotic empowerment. Pleasure is also a pathway to spirit. As the body relaxes in a full-body massage it releases hormones that facilitate feelings of love, bonding and trust. With sexual stimulation we produce a cascade of powerful endorphins that build a feeling of bliss. This is the biochemistry of ecstasy. With prana pumps engaged by prolonged deep breathing, the heart opens, energy spirals through the chakras, and we can experience ecstatic unity with the divine in ourselves and others. “This is about integrating spirit at the cellular level,” one of my teachers says.
Taoist Erotic Massage was first developed in the1980’s by Dr. Joseph Kramer of the Body Electric School. Combining the ancient wisdom of Tantra and Taoist sexual cultivation with the insights of western sexology, psychology and neurobiology, this is a powerful practice that can evolve and integrate body, mind, spirit and emotions. No matter where you are on your personal journey of erotic empowerment, Taoist Erotic Massage is a technology that can assist you in knowing and experiencing your capacity for joy.
