This just in…Breathing makes life better! And, some heathens may admit, so does sex. How do you make sex better? Breathe! Ah, the circle of life. Leave it to Fox News to bring us the absolute basics on how yoga can improve your sex life…no new kinky positions you sexy pervs, just breathing. (*yawn*) Really though, this can come in handy! And just might be the thing to get your begrudging partner to reconsider their no-go yoga policy. We all have our price. And while there’s lots of spicy Sting-tastic tantric stuff out there, just the rudimentary breathe in, breathe out technique is enough to fuel the fire.
Let this be a reminder, next time you’re in the heat of panting passions, here’s how yoga helped you breathe into hotter sex…(in YD format for your pleasure):
1. Concentrate! What lover doesn’t want your undivided attention? Yoga, specifically focusing on the breath, can help with that. But don’t only focus on your own inhaling and exhaling, pay attention to your partner and find the, uh… rhythm.
2. Hold your horses! Controlled breathing will help prevent a premature peak pose, if you will. Want to last longer? Slow down your breath. Alternately, breathe faster to speed things along.
3. Think! Believe it or not breathing helps with thinking. It’s the old oxygen to the brain trick. When you think more clearly you can, oh we don’t know, let your imagination run free.
We have one more not on the list… Relax! While breath can fire things up it can also help you chill the eff out and enjoy yourself. This is no time to be a Teepee or a Wigwam.*
