We’re pleased to welcome back Forplay Films’ Inka Winter as our guest director.

Tantric sex is an ancient Hindu / Buddhist philosophy that combines meditation, spirituality and sex. The idea is to combine spiritual, mindful thinking with the physical, enhancing awareness of the senses and – hopefully – enhancing your pleasure. Tantric sex doesn’t always have to include a partner, nor does it even have to involve intercourse, but its often used as a way of better connecting with one’s partner and of extending and improving intimacy.

There’s an urban myth that the singer Sting had 8-hour tantric sex sessions with his wife Trudie Styler. Trudie cleared things up in 2011, saying:

“Do you know who I blame for that? Bob Geldof. Him and Sting had gone to do an interview with a rock journalist, and the interview turned into a drinking session.

“At one point, the journalist asked how long they could go for, and Geldof said he was a three-minute man, but, as Sting did yoga, he could probably go for hours. And Sting said ‘Well, haven’t you heard of tantric sex?’

“So Sting explained that it is all about being intimate, about caring for your partner, really engaging in intimacy before you, you know… have sex. And that’s the premise of tantra, really. It’s simply engagement with your partner.”

If you’ve ever been curious about what Tantric sex looks like, this wonderful video by Inka Williams gives a great example. It includes elements of careful mindfulness and there’s an incredible connection between the two performers, Bonnie Good and Tripp Empire. If you’re tired of seeing hard-and-fast porn, this video is a perfect, slow antidote. Female pleasure is important of course, as is real intimacy and enjoyment.
