What is Tantra? Tantra literally means a tool for expansion. In spite of the Eastern terminology, Tantra is easy concept to grasp. At its heart is the knowledge that a powerful current of energy flows through us all, which needs to be harmonized. Tantra involves expansion on an energetic, psychological and physical level, and the teachings have been used for thousands years as a tool to expand the boundaries of consciousness. Tantra aims to harmonize life energies and resolve contradictions and conflicts in order to experience life as a flow of intense energy. 
Tantra aims at total surrender-letting go of mental, emotional and cultural conditioning, so that universal life energy can flow through us. It is finding our way back to our existential roots, letting go into sense of wonder and oneness with universe, which spiritual teachers of all paths describe simple as love.
Tantric practices involve a meeting on the sexual level. Sex is the beginning rather then the ultimate step in the journey you are taking together. Sexual practices are performed with consciousness of what are you doing, and why. More important than what are you doing is how you are doing it, and the intention you have when you are making love. Love making with the intention of exploring real intimacy and connection with your partner, and allowing yourself to see where that connection takes you, rather then limiting your focus on genital pleasure and orgasm, creates the right space. But Tantra is not just about sex, it is about the free flow of energy within yourself, as well as others. It is more about this flow of energy then about sexual intercourse or fancy postures of love making. The emphasis in Tantric love making is on non-doing-relaxing into pleasurable experiences and the energy connection you have with your partner, rather then trying to build excitement and make something specific happen (orgasm)...To be continued:)
