The power of tantric breathing for men

Tantric breathing (or tantra breathing) is a powerful instrument for men to unleash their full masculine and sexual potential.

This is more than just a sexual practice. Tantra breathing activates sexual energy, masculine essence, and spiritual growth.

By practicing tantra, you learn to transform your intimate experiences. You’ll also heighten your understanding of your body, mind, and soul.

After all, you integrate ancient Indian practices and tantric principles into your daily life.

Activate your sexual energy

Are you struggling with bedroom performance issues? Well, tantric breathing is one natural form of treatment.

Using tantra breathing, you’ll be able to harness your sexual energy. This makes sexual intercourse with your partner twice more pleasurable.

More importantly, it allows you to draw out your partner’s feminine energy naturally.

Therefore, you can build a deeper emotional connection with not just yourself but also with your significant other.

Making the tantric breathing exercise a regular part of your routine will help you open up your mind and body.

As we delve into the breathing exercises later in this guide, you’ll have the foundational tools to boost your sexual prowess.

So, embrace the power of your breath when it comes to sex. Think of it as ammunition for intensely satisfying sexual experiences.

Unleash your masculine essence

Tantra breathing brings out your masculine essence. This is a key component to achieving your full potential as a man and becoming the leader you always wanted to be.

Through tantra breathing, you connect with the following:

  • Masculine qualities, such as strength, courage, and assertiveness
  • Feminine qualities, such as emotional intelligence and creative ability

In other words, you’re tapping into your inner power. Tantra encourages you to practice mindfulness, meditation, and yoga.

All of which cultivate a deeper understanding of your true self.

The result?

You’ll gain mastery in channeling your innate masculine and feminine energy to manifest your deepest desires into reality.

Spiritual growth

A profound spiritual growth is a beautiful byproduct of practicing tantra.

Tantric breathing forces you to slow down. It’s a spiritual practice that makes you deeply reflect, connecting with your higher self and fostering a deep connection with the divine. This creates a stronger sense of inner peace and harmony.

As you progress in your tantric journey, you’ll uncover the transformative power of conscious breathing and movement.

Now, it might sound like I’m hyping up the concept of tantra breathing. But the reality is that it can improve all areas of your life.

After working with hundreds of tantric men, many have seen results like the following:

  • Sexual oneness experience with significant other
  • Full body and energy orgasm
  • Riding her orgasm without ejaculating

These benefits and many more that come with tantra breathing add to a fulfilling life whole of passion and purpose.


Boost your confidence, master your sexuality, and find your purpose.

So you can reignite the passion in your relationship or attract your perfect woman.

7 steps to perform the foundational tantric breathing exercise

Here are the steps to the foundational tantric breathing exercise that leads to sexual mastery:

  • Inhalation
  • Exhalation
  • Penis contraction
  • Hand movement
  • Vocal expression
  • Proper posture
  • The right setting

Now, there is a specific way to inhale and exhale that we’ll go through in detail below. Practicing this technique regularly will strengthen the synergy with your body, mind, and spirit.

Ultimately, this unleashes your full masculine and sexual potential.

So, get ready! We’ll go through the steps to immerse yourself in this foundational tantra breathing exercise that establishes an intimate connection with your higher self.

1. Inhalation through a U-shaped tongue

Form a “U” shape with your tongue. Then, inhale through the mouth completely.

inhalation through a u shaped tongue

It’s almost like sipping air through a straw that you formed using your tongue.

By forming this tube shape with your tongue to breathe through, you’re concentrating your sexual core. In other words, your sensual center: the Swadhisthana chakra.

2. Move your hands upwards toward your throat

Use your hands to help you channel your masculine energy. Move your hands upwards toward your throat as you reach the peak of your inhalation.

use your hands to help you channel your masculine energy

Think of this step as directing energy with your hands.

The principle of where your mind goes, the energy flows, especially applies here.

Using your body and hands to direct the energy makes it easier to focus, move the energy, and tap into the subtle streams of chakra.

This is a crucial movement in activating the sacral chakra down at the genitals.

3. Contract your penis

The last step as you’re inhaling through your mouth is to add a contraction to your penis.

Contract your genitals and the muscles of the perineum. In more common terms, this is known as contracting your kegels. It’s also known as the mula bandha in yogic terms.  

While you’re inhaling, it’s essential to contract this part of your body. Doing this at the same time allows you to draw from your masculine essence.

4. Exhale vocally, releasing the U-shaped tongue

Exhale through the sound “ha.” At the same time, release the U-shaped tongue you formed for inhalation.

exhale vocally releasing the u shaped tongue

Releasing your breath through this sound creates a deep resonance within your body. This allows energy to flow more freely and enhances the overall experience.

During this step, you could also envision tension release and sexual energy activation. This fosters a dynamic synergy between your body, mind, and spirit.

5. Move the palms of your hands downwards

Move the palms of your hands downwards toward the direction of your genitals. Do this as you exhale to charge your cock and balls with chronic energy.

You’ll feel more vitalized and energized in your masculine core and sexual center as you follow this step.

The longer you do this, the more powerful you feel throughout the day.

Important Note: I recommend performing this exercise for at least 3 minutes. However, you could also do this breathing exercise for 10 to 15 minutes.

6. Get the body posture right

How you stand and perform the breathing exercise is key for infusing your warrior energy.

Here’s the correct body positioning:

  • Stand up with your feet firmly planted on the ground
  • Keep feet shoulder-width apart
  • Slightly bend your knees
  • Roll your shoulders back
  • Align your head with the spine

You could also perform this exercise sitting down. However, I suggest doing it while you’re standing because sitting has less of a powerful effect.

Moreover, avoid leaning or slouching. Slouching will negatively affect the amount of energy you can infuse.

But if you’re standing in a grounded power pose, this can positively affect the amount of energy you can channel.

7. Choose the right setting

You can do this practice inside at home or outside in nature. Either setting works as long as you’re able to focus.

However, I suggest doing it outside in nature if possible. This is because you can utilize the fresh, chronic energy that nature has to offer.

As a result, it amplifies the power of the breathing exercise.


Boost your confidence, master your sexuality, and find your purpose.

So you can reignite the passion in your relationship or attract your perfect woman.

Other tantric breathing techniques to practice

On top of the foundational tantra breathing exercise, there are several other techniques to add to the list.

Here are the other breathing techniques to practice:

  • Testicle breathing
  • Quickie breath technique
  • Stimulating breath
  • 4-7-8 breath
  • Chakra breathing
  • Counting breath
  • Rhythmic breathing
  • Testicle breathing

All of these will help you release tension as well as unleash your sexual and masculine energy.

Testicle breathing

Testicle breathing is a tantric technique that harnesses your masculine energy. This is an exercise that’s more focused on activating your sexual energy.  

Here’s how to breathe with your testicles:

  • Contract your balls as you inhale
  • Release the tension as you exhale
  • Visualize the flow of energy

If you’re interested in this technique, I have a full guide on testicle breathing here. I suggest reading it, especially if you struggle with bedroom performance issues.

testicle breathing is a powerful technique

Quickie breath technique

No, I’m not talking about pulling off a quickie with your partner. I’m talking about the quickie breath technique.

This simple yet powerful exercise helps you release tension by focusing on relaxation.

Take a deep breath for a few seconds and exhale. It’s that simple!

When you feel overwhelmed, use this technique to restore balance between body and mind. It’s an effective strategy to ease the turmoil inside your head by neutralizing your energy levels.

Stimulating breath

The stimulating breath is also known as the bellows breath. This is how this deep breathing exercise works:

  • Inhale rapidly through the nose
  • Exhale rapidly through the nose
  • Keep your mouth completely closed yet relaxed

This dynamic practice helps you improve your alertness and provide a much-needed energy boost.

Whenever you feel drowsy or low on energy, use this technique to revitalize your body and mind.

Overall, the stimulating breath improves relaxation and overall well-being throughout the day.  

Give it a shot and feel the surge of energy coursing through your sympathetic nervous system!

4-7-8 breath

The 4-7-8 breath technique is based on pranayama, an ancient yogic tradition. Here’s how it works:

  • Use your nose to inhale for a count of four
  • Hold your breath for a count of seven
  • Use your mouth to exhale for a count of eight

You’ll experience a strong sense of relaxation and mental clarity with the 4-7-8 breath exercise.

Chakra breathing

Chakra breathing is an energizing practice that focuses on breathing consciously. How? By balancing the energy centers within your body.

Concentrate on deep breathing with intention. Visualize your chakra levels and stimulate the energy through each level.

This requires practice. However, the effort pays off when you can master this ancient Indian practice.

You’ll awaken your hidden potential and experience a transformative power within you.

Counting breath

This is another simple yet effective technique. As the name suggests, perform a mental count for your in and out breaths. This creates greater awareness of your breathing.

Inhale quietly when performing the counting breath exercise. It’s a meditative practice focused on creating mental clarity.

Rhythmic breathing

Perform in and out breaths through your nose in a rhythmic pattern. Maintain a consistent breathing pattern. If it helps, keep a mental count while you’re breathing.

Imagine your breaths as a steady beat. That’s essentially what rhythmic breathing is. The purpose is to stabilize the flow of energy throughout your body.

It’s a soothing practice I recommend trying out to calm a chaotic mind.

Best sex positions for tantric sex breathing with a partner

Two particular tantric sex positions are effective for tantra breathing with a partner:

  • Lying in stillness
  • Yab yum

These positions aren’t meant for you just to screw your wife or girlfriend. They’re positions that allow you to increase the intimacy and energy exchange with your partner.

The lying in stillness position and yab yum are incredible. Practice these with your significant other to build a spiritual connection through synchronized breathing and deep eye contact.

Lying in stillness

lying in stillness

This position activates the Sahasrara chakra, the crown center.

It’s not exactly the same as a typical sex move because you’re not thrusting against your partner. Physical pleasure isn’t the main goal here.

This is to create a space of tranquility and harmony with your partner.

Yab yum

yab yum

The yab yum is a seated sex position that activates the Ajna chakra.

Sitting face-to-face with your partner with one person’s legs wrapped around the other will create a powerful energy exchange.

Not only is it an intimate sexual experience that feels good, but it also allows you to ensure you’re in sync with your partner.

Practicing the art of tantra in everyday life

Tantra goes far beyond the bedroom. It also includes the following:

  • Mindfulness and meditation
  • Yoga
  • Eye contact
  • Touch

There’s more to it than improving sexual experiences and intimacy. It’s all about mindfulness of your body, mind, and surroundings.

Adding tantra improves your relationship with yourself and the world around you.

Mindfulness and meditation

Mindfulness and meditation improve your self-awareness. It’s beneficial for your mental and emotional well-being.

Focusing on the present moment cultivates an awareness of your thoughts, feelings, and sensations.

This clarifies your understanding of yourself and your place in our world. In other words, it brings you closer to a more fulfilling and purposeful life.

Despite the benefits, research by NCBI showed that only 5.2% of men use some form of meditation. Quite shocking, if you asked me.

94 percent of men incorporate no form of meditation


Some form of exercise or stretching is essential for a healthy body.

A healthier body leads to a healthier mind. However, this doesn’t just mean building muscle and becoming the next Arnold Schwarzenegger.

There’s a deeper purpose, which is to love and respect yourself.

Tantric yoga is built not just to improve your flexibility but also your consciousness level. Plus, it’s a form of sexual healing.

Eye contact and touch

Eye contact and touch strengthen the emotional connection between romantic partners. Releasing your masculine energy will naturally draw out her feminine energy.

Tantric sex is more than just a physical sensation. It involves another profound form of pleasure by tapping into the spiritual and emotional elements with your partner.

So, be intentional with your actions as you practice tantric sex and synchronized breathing with your partner.

How to prepare for tantric breathing exercises

Choose the right setting and clear your mind. These are the most effective ways to prepare yourself for tantra breathing exercises.

Both of these steps will help you stay present in the moment as you’re performing the exercise.

Set the scene

A comfortable and relaxing environment is pivotal to getting the most out of your tantric breathing exercises.

Here are a few of my personal favorite places for breathing exercises:

  • Outside in nature
  • Bedroom with dim lights
  • In the garden

Anywhere with a calm and private atmosphere where you’re not forced to inhale quietly will do.

Clear your mind

Without a clear mind, you won’t be able to engage and immerse yourself when you practice tantra fully.

This is quite ironic, but take a few deep breaths to shift your focus back into the present slowly. Then, continue with your breathing exercise.

Conclusion: unlock your full potential as a man

Alright, breathe in warriors. We’ve journeyed through the wonderous world of tantra breathing, where a simple inhale and exhale can be transformational.

Use the breathing exercises we discussed to elevate your love game, self-awareness, and even your charismatic swagger.
