Sex and breathing

Most of the Yogic breathing exercises such as Ocean Breathing, Feather Breathing, Humming Bee Breathing, Valve Breathing, Bellows Breathing, Whistle Breathing and Sighing Breathing can be used as “spices” before / while or after sexual activity.

Couples can connect to each other by matching their breathing. Matching the breathing tempo (rate), the duration of the inhale and the duration of the exhale. Mutual breathing retention is another way of connecting by breathing (or not breathing….)

When the body is oxygenated, pleasure is intensified. Oxygen in the blood arouses and lack of oxygen does the opposite.

Some men have a problem of premature ejaculation, and some women have a problem with reaching an orgasm. So, what many times happen is that men are trying to avoid an orgasm while women are trying to get one 😊

Women
Nose breathing, for both men and women, is by far better than mouth breathing, also when it comes to sex.
Some women have difficulties getting to an orgasm because they are tens during sexual activities. Breathing exercises that relax the body prior and during sexual activities may assist in getting an orgasm. Imagining that the inhaled air is going all the way down to the pelvis may also help.

Instead of focusing on an orgasm, it is worth while trying to focus on the breathing.

Men

Nose breathing, for both men and women, is by far better than mouth breathing, also when it comes to sex.

Men can delay ejaculation, intensify and even extend their sexual orgasm, by controlling their breathing.

A deep inhale followed by short retention and then a slow exhale may delay ejaculation. When getting very close to ejaculation retreating and hyperventilating by inhaling and exhaling intensively (like in Bellows Breathing) may delay the orgasm.

Repeated retreating and hyperventilating may lead to a prolonged erection.
