#027: Practical Tantra with Mark A. Michaels and Patricia Johnson
March 5, 2018
Most of us have heard about the sexual benefits of Tantra. But what is it exactly? Do you need a yogi’s flexibility to do it? An olympic athlete’s stamina? Can you do tantra with more than one person?
In today’s episode we’re talking with Mark A. Michaels and Patricia Johnson, the authors of Great Sex Made Simple, Tantra for Erotic Empowerment, and The Essence of Tantric Sexuality. We’ll be discussing these questions, debunking some of the myths surrounding tantra, and talking about some tantric practices you can start using in the bedroom today.
PLUS: Patricia talks about that time she orgasmed in an fMRI machine…. for science!
