Safe Sex Script Makes Awkward Easy

chat-23713_1280This “script” is a good way to initiate a conversation about your sexual history and to ask someone else to share their sexual history with you.  Review your answers to the statements below. Practice saying them out loud in front of a mirror. Next, share this process with a friend or lover. Ideally, this is done prior to finding yourself in a sexually charged situation.

  1. “The last time I got tested for Sexually Transmitted Infections (STI’s) was…”
  1. A. “The tests I had done were…”   B. “The results of those tests were…”

A Comprehensive STI Panel consists of: HIV, Syphilis (Rapid Plasma Reagin test), Oral Herpes (HSV-1), Genital Herpes (HSV-2), HPV, Gonorrhea, Chlamydia, Hepatitis B and Hepatitis C. Female testing usually includes a Pap Smear and wet mount to check for other common vaginal infections.

  1. “My sexual orientation is…” (Straight, Gay, Bi, Transgender, Fluid…)
  1. “My relationship status is…” (Single. Dating. Living with a lover. Married. In an open relationship with one or more persons. Fluid bonded with one or more persons.)
  1. “My current relationship agreements that you need to be aware of are…”
  1. “My safer sex practices and/or boundaries are…”  
  1. “I use___________ to prevent unwanted pregnancies.”
  1. Share any risky activities you may have experienced since you were last tested.
  1. Then ask the other person, “How about you?”Listen closely to what they say and how they say it…  Ask questions, if you need clarification.
  1. If, after you both have shared your sexual histories you decide to engage in sex, take time to discuss what sexual activities you are open to at this time and what is off the menu. Share you desires, fears and “healthy boundaries.” Healthy boundaries are what you need to feel safe and stay open; they are dynamic and can expand as well as contract. Intimacy grows when you stay present, are authentic and communicate clearly using “I” statements.

Opening the Inner Flute

The ‘Inner Flute,” is the SkyDancing Tantra™  term, for what you may know as the Central Channel or Sushumna. The purpose of this practice is to access and expand awareness of the life-force energy that moves naturally through the body. This practice supports you in being present, having a relaxed body-mind and an open heart. Another benefit is that it helps to amplify and redistribute sexual energy throughout the whole body. This practice is based on the teachings of SkyDancing Tantra™.

The Three Keys of Tantra

1. Breath

2. Sound

3. Movement

We are born knowing Tantra! The three keys are natural and fundamental to the human condition. The first independent act we take at birth is to breathe. After our first breath, we cry (sound) which expands the lungs. These two important acts are crucial for infants to make the shift from living in their mother’s womb to being able to live and breathe on their own. Next, the infant begins to move its arms and legs and explore the space around him/her.

The following practices can be done either standing with legs hip-width apart and knees slightly bent or lying comfortably on your back with the knees bent and feet flat on the floor. I recommend trying it both ways.

The Sipping Breath and “AHHH” Sound

The Sipping Breath amplifies awareness of the inhalation and allows you to draw the air deep into the abdomen. This type of breathing increases the amount of oxygen circulating in the body, which increases the sense of vitality and pleasure we can feel.

1. Begin by puckering your lips as if you are sipping through a straw. Leave a slight gap between the lips and inhale deeply through the mouth, allowing your abdomen to expand fully.

2. Then, relax the mouth and let the air flow out effortlessly, while making the sound “AHHH.”

The Pelvic Rock

Next, we add the external movement, called the Pelvic Rock.This practice opens the sacrum and helps to activate the sexual energy stored in the pelvic bowl.

1. In this practice, you will be focusing on moving the pelvis, by rotating it forward and backward. As you inhale, arch the lower back as the buttocks will stick out slightly. As you exhale, tuck the tailbone under, flattening the lower back. As the pelvis rotates, the whole spinal column is naturally engaged. This causes the head to fall back slightly (as you arch the back) and fall forward slightly (as you round the back).

2. Once you have this movement established you can add the Sipping Breath. Inhale through your pelvic floor, drawing energy up the Inner Flute (the energetic channel that runs from your pelvic floor to the crown of your head,) as you arch the lower back.

3. Exhale with an “Ahhh,” drawing energy down the Inner Flute and out through your pelvic floor. Go at a rate that feels right for you. You may begin to notice an increased awareness of your sexual/life force energy.

4. As you feel ready, try quickening the pace. Relax and enjoy the sensations that arise.

The PC Pump

Next, we add the internal movement, called the PC Pump or Kegel Exercise. This practice strengthens and tones the pelvic floor/PC (pubococcygeus) muscles. Becoming more aware of how to consciously engage these muscles will allow you to more effectively channel your sexual energy. This practice supports both men and women in having multiple full-body orgasms. It can help men to develop the ability to choose when, and if, they ejaculate.

1. Begin by bringing the focus of attention to the pelvic floor. Squeeze the PC muscles, as if you were stopping the flow of urine. See if you can isolate the various muscles around the urethra and anus.

2. Allow your arms to rest at your sides. As you inhale, contract your PC muscles. At the same time, squeeze your hands into fists as a reminder to do this PC contraction.

3. As you exhale, relax your hands and your PC muscles. Do this several times until it feels natural.

4. Next, add the Sipping Breath on the inhale and “Ahhh” on the exhale.

5. Once that is established, add the Pelvic Rock. On the inhale, sip in the breath as you arch the back and squeeze the PC and fists. On the exhale, make the “Ahhh” sound as you flatten the lower back and relax the PC and hands.

6. Once that is established, continue all the steps and, on the inhale, visualize energy moving up the Inner Flute from the pelvic floor toward the crown. On the exhale, visualize the energy moving back down the Inner Flute to the pelvic floor.

7. As you do this practice, you will become aware of increased energy and vitality circulating throughout the body.

Opening the Inner Flute increases awareness, vitality and, when done regularly, supports you in experiencing increased orgasmic energy- both inside and outside the sexual context!

Humaniversity AUM Meditation

Stay for the Spiritual Sexual Shamanic Training

Oct 1-7, 2012 Copenhagen SSSPT (instructors Deborah Taj Anapol, Crystal Dawn Morris, Matt Sinbad)

Why this training rocks and you might want to consider doing it

……or doing it again

Essentially it is about presence, power and freedom – yours, ours, humanity’s

Spiritual…Sexual….Shamanic …each of these three areas alone carry enormous charge and potential for liberation as well as shadow and misuse of power. When these become  integrated we begin to see what it means to be awake, empowered and in service as love in the world.

This powerful training is for practitioners or sexuality enthusiasts who desire to take their personal empowerment to another level and to deepen their abilities to master self so that they may help others.  Activities include hands on practice and coaching around the use and implementation of the 7 tools including emotional release, aspecting, voice dialogue, neurological reprogramming, exploration into ethics and boundaries and introduction of rituals of initiation.

Your Instructors

Baba Dez Crystal Dawn Morris Matt Sinbad

Some people take this training for their own personal enrichment while others are interested in  the profession of Sacred Sexual Practitioner or Educator.  Join other motivated individuals from a diverse background of experiences, including computer techs, massage therapists, counselors, artists, healers, entrepreneurs, and students, to create an intensely-satisfying learning journey, that will significantly impact your personal life and professional style. Once we are free then love and genuine service is the immediate response….  for our freedom is inextricably tied together.

10th Anniversary ISTA Conference of Sexuality & Consciousness
Sedona Apr 29 – May 1, 2011

I hope you will join me at the Conference and attend my presentation called, Sexual Ethics and Community – Embracing Diversity. In it we will use the recent Facebook thread “Sacred Union: Ethics, Blocks and Boundaries,” posted on Baba Dez’s page, as a jumping off point to look at how sexual ethics can help us to embrace diversity as we create unity.  We will engage in awareness, tools, and techniques that delve into key issues and new possibilities. We will explore how to hold  a passionate viewpoint within a  larger community and remain conscious of Oneness.  This presentation is an opportunity to deepen presence, as you improve your ability to listen and communicate while holding multiple  diverse perspectives. The Ethics Wisdom Circle will follow.

The Sedona Spring Conference is a gathering place for like-minded individuals, who know in their belly that an energetic shift is occurring on this planet.  Join experts in their fields as they share their knowledge, learn new tools and synthesize the energies of sacred mind, sacred body, sacred spirit, sacred heart and sacred emotion.  Synthesis goes beyond polarity and creates new opportunities to love and be free.  Meet your next mate, seed your next project.  You do not want to miss this special gathering bringing 10 years of sexuality consciousness to a new level.

Tantra Tip of the Day – Honor Your Sexuality

Original Art by Paul Heussenstamm www.Mandalas.com

How often do you take the time to honor and celebrate your sexuality?
I remember the wonder I felt at the age 16 when I realized that making love was a path to God. I couldn’t believe that no one every talked about sex in that way. When I gave birth to my first son, I also discovered a direct connection to the Divine Mother as I went through a long labor and gave birth. It was such a profound experience that I decided to become a midwife so I could help other women experience birth in a sacred way. I teach Tantra because it celebrates the embodiment of the Divine in form and is also a path to moving beyond identification with form and recognizing the Divine as formless Awareness.

Today do something to honor your sexuality and celebrate your body as a temple of pleasure.

LET 3-The Wave of Bliss

The week of Nov. 10-16, 2008, I had the pleasure of assisting Margot Anand and Jelle Bode at the Love and Ecstatsy Training Level 3: The Wave of Bliss in northern California. Margot creates an amazing container for people to expand their consciousness and move into new experiences. This group was particularly open to taking it to the next level and they did. Our closing ritual took us flying out into the cosmos.

Being a part of a week long workshop with people who have spent a 6 months bonding is a great gift. It gives me hope for the world. By the end of the week there was such a sense of love, trust and connection that no one wanted to leave. I believe if we could expose everyone in the world to this work we could end war.

Thank you to all beings who are on the SkyDancing path may it continue to grow and end all suffering everywhere.
