Energy Orgasm – What is it? And How To Experience A Tantric Full Body Orgasm
The main distinction between a regular peak orgasm and an energy orgasm comes from limitation. While a regular peak orgasm is only limited to feeling pleasure in one part of the body, i.e., the genitals, an energy orgasm is not. Rather, it is an expansive feeling that can be felt throughout the body.
The energy orgasm can been described and felt in several ways; a warm stream, a fiery bolt, tingling in hands and face, cold shivers, electric currents, and, or trembling muscles.
A person is left feeling ecstatic and light headed, a sort of natural high. It can range from being a very strong sensation that involves your whole being, that is all the 5 ‘bodies’, to being much more subtle. In order to experience it, it is necessary to develop your sense of orgasmic perception, to think and feel from a new perspective.
The 5 ‘bodies’ of yoga are called “Pancha Kosha” and they consist of – 1) the Physical body, 2) the Energetic body, 3) the Emotional body, 4) the Mental body, and 5) the Spiritual body.
All superimposed on top of each other, the physical and the energetic compose the gross body, and the emotional and mental compose the subtle body, while the spiritual is the cosmic body and the most refined.
The ‘energy’ in reference to an energy orgasm can originate from and move through any of these bodies. In order to experience and feel this energy, we need to train ourselves in order to see things from a new perspective because an energy orgasm is different from the explosive peak orgasm that comes with ejaculation and/or clitoral stimulation.
A regular peak orgasm is usually short, intense and feels more like a quick release, usually followed by a feeling of drowsiness. This type of orgasm takes place on a gross body level and tends to stay on that level.
On the other hand, an energy orgasm often feels more refined and eloquent, since it usually runs deeper, in most cases, affecting all of the different yogic bodies. This, naturally, leads to a more profound and exhilarating experience.
Redefining An Orgasm
In order to experience an energy orgasm, you need to redefine the way you think about the experience. Try to expand your belief of what an orgasm should look and feel like.
Most of us believe in the traditional orgasmic experience – a 5-20 second peak orgasm, centralized to a single part of the body. We must broaden that view to include more subtle pleasurable sensations that may not necessarily come to mind when thinking of an orgasm.
Sensations such as the goosebumps you feel when caressed lightly by your lover, or a sensual whisper near the ear from a beloved. Or the first physical contact with your partner, especially after a long sexual hiatus.
These sensations don’t always need to be physical either. Think about the bliss experienced by someone diving into a slice of decadent chocolate cake for the first time after a long diet or the awe felt witnessing a sunset on a beach in a tropical country.
Yogis will be familiar with the spaced out, light feeling after an intense session. These small sensations are often overlooked. And so, when you are able to shift your orgasmic perception, you will slowly start to experience these small sensations and experience a more pleasurable life.
In a nutshell, it is opening yourself to a more orgasmic life by redefining what an orgasm is. Enjoying these subtler experiences, will surely put you on your way to experiencing an energy orgasm on a whole different level.
Releasing Energy Blocks
A starting step is to ensure a free flow of energy. The free flow can only occur if the body is free from constraining energy blocks.
These blocks can occur on both a physical and energetic level. Yoga Asanas and bodywork practices can help with physical blocks while Pranayama and breathing practices can help with the energetic level.
When the preparatory work has been done and your body feels more open, and relaxed, you have the foundation set to start experiencing an energy orgasm yourself.
To cause a stir of orgasmic energy in your body, start with breathing exercises.
Take deep breaths all the way down to the stomach and core of your body, all the while moving your body in swirling motions, and using your mind to direct the energy. Key point to remember; energy follows thought – energy flows where your mind goes.
Use the power of your mind to move this energy up from the genitals to the heart, bridging the sacral chakra with the heart chakra that will result in a deeper experience where erotic sex is united with connected intimacy. When this union occurs within, the pleasure of the energy orgasm will increase 10 fold and it can now radiate out from the heart, shooting out to the peripheries of the whole body.
Once this connection has been established, you can stay here until you feel you are capable of moving to the next level which would move it higher up in the chakra system, to the throat chakra.
At this stage, it’s important to be expressive with sounds. Don’t hold back expressing yourself or your pleasure, because that can also be a limitation to how well you will activate the energy orgasm.
You can express yourself using moans or making pleasurable sounds. You can chant mantras, hum consonants, or even say the name of the chakras. Speaking loving words to your partner will also do it.
Know Thyself – Know Your Energy Centers
Educating yourself on the basics of the chakras will aid in the perception of energy. Chakras are more than just woo-woo hippie ideas. They can be understood with a scientific explanation of being energy centers on cardinal points through the body. It should be noted that these points are all places where nerve bundles happen to coalesce on the body.
Thus, all of these points on the body, (a) have more comparative active neural energy/nerve electric impulse activity, and thus (b) are located where we are physically tied to or “feel” strong emotions. (a headache in the forehead, arousal in the genitalia, fear in the stomach, anxiety in the heart, etc.)
Several books have been written about the chakra system, many with contradicting information. The books I have found to be most accurate according to yogic tradition, are unfortunately not the most popular in bookshops. From my understanding, the best and most accurate books are: “Chakras” by Harish Johari and “The Serpent Power” by Arthur Avalon. These books provide detailed insight into the Chakras but to give you a quick rundown, the most important thing to know about chakras is their location and how they “feel” in the body.
First and foremost, a common misperception is that the chakras are located in the spine. The spine actually houses an energy channel called “Sushumna Nadi”, which is basically “the central energy channel”, to which the chakras are attached by an “energy string”, or nadi, but the actual disc-shaped chakra is in front and just outside the physical body at a distance of approximately 2-3 centimeters, on a level of the energetic body. According to clairvoyant masters, they are said to look like a wheel with spokes.
The first chakra is Muladhara, the root center, located at the perineum, and feels grounded and heavy.
The second chakra is Svadhistana, the sacral center, located just above the pubic bone, and feels watery and sensual.
The third chakra is Manipura, the naval center, located at the navel, and feels fiery and dynamic.
The fourth chakra is Anahata, the heart center, located in the middle of the chest, and feels loving and intimate.
The fifth chakra is Vishudda, the throat center, located in the suprasternal notch of the throat, and feels spacey and ethereal.
The sixth chakra is Ajna, the third eye center, located in the middle of the forehead, (not in between the eyebrows as per popular belief), and feels clear and sublime.
The seventh chakra is Sahasrara, the crown center, located on top of the head, and feels like bliss and ecstasy (beyond any describable worldly feelings).
As you learn to control the flow of energy travelling through the body and the chakra system, you might encounter some of these mentioned feelings. You can even have orgasms on the different chakras. A so-called “chakra orgasm”.
For example, an orgasm on Manipura might express itself as a sudden burst in uncontrollable laughter, while an orgasm on Svadhistana might involve a lot of tears, and furthermore an orgasm on Muladhara might invoke raw screaming and shouting.
In the end, there are valid and time-tested guidelines that can greatly help you navigate through the process of an energy orgasm but ultimately, it all falls on how you are able to experience it.
Do not stress on the details and instead focus on your own embodied experience and discover your truth. Learn to fully be present in the moment with all your senses – breath, movement, sound, taste, smell – instead of worrying about the how’s and why’s.
What If I Don’t Experience Any Energy, Or Feel Nothing At All?
Patience is key when it comes to experiencing energy orgasms. You might get lucky and have amazing sensations from the get-go, or it might take a few times to get it right.
Practice makes perfect. Or more accurately; practice makes progress.
Focus on doing the preparatory work, work on releasing any existing blocks, and you will soon find yourself well on your way.
When it comes down to it, women tend to more naturally tap into these subtle feelings of energy since women are usually more connected to the emotional body and use more of the right-brain hemisphere.
Men, on the other hand, tend to find it as difficult as learning a new language since they are more focused on logic and problem-based reasoning. This causes them to try to approach it from an intellectual understanding of it rather than an embodied experience.
Men are also exposed to the social conditioning of the machismo culture where boys are thought to “man-up” and not to be “a pussy” since a very young age. This results in a lot of grown up adult men being distant from their emotions on a sub-conscious level.
Being aware of these issues and accepting them is the first step in trying to overcome them in order to better contemplate your relationship with your own emotions. As such, for some men (and some women), it might take a long-term consistent practice to develop this skill.
But from my experience, and from what I have seen, anyone can get to a place of emotional content, where not only are they truly able to experience powerful energy orgasms, but also experience blissful enhancements in all pleasurable activities, both in the bedroom and beyond. Even if they are the most walled-off, block-headed, masochistic man alive.
Side-Effects Of Releasing Your Energy
Releasing energy constraints do sometimes result in unwanted side-effects that can manifest itself in different ways; crying, anger and irritation, old forgotten memories surfacing, gagging, pressure, and contractions. This is because emotions and memories are bottled up in the tissue of the body and when tension is released, these emotions shower the body.
It is important to be available for that experience, to accept it, to let yourself feel it. If you do this fully, and truly immerse yourself into the moment, you will find it lasts not longer than 30 seconds to a couple of minutes.
For example, if you feel sadness arising, maybe seemingly out of nowhere, embrace this feeling by getting into it. If you need to release it by crying it out, or experiencing the pain in the heart, let yourself do it.
After doing so, you will be left feeling lighter, as if a burden has been lifted off your shoulders. You will find that the extra baggage that you have been carrying around is now gone. This will result in great joy and newfound energy resulting in a better start to the next day.
So, if you find yourself in that purifying moment, remember that it is short lived, and what is waiting on the other side is all worth it.
Just breathe through it and accept what shows up.
Ultimately, this practice is not only tremendously pleasing, it is also highly healing as well. Years of social conditioning, sex shaming, and repressed emotions keeps us from truly experiencing life’s pleasures – key one being an immensely powerful orgasm.
View this experience as a way to shed unwanted layers from yourself, diving in to discover your one truth. The more layers you shed, the closer you get to your true sexual expression. The more you open up and allow the universal life-force energies to flow through you, the more joy and happiness you are channeling into the world.
