Importance of Love
The important part of sex is not intercourse, or climax, or fondling, or foreplay; it is LOVE. You will not achieve any spiritual development benefits without the ingredient of LOVE. In fact, if you engage in intercourse without love, you will feel cheated and used, for it will have no meaning and purpose. Also, it is not the physical act of intercourse that produces the feelings of well being, but rather, intercourse releases the innate energies stored within us and this allows the vibrant energies to flow and refresh. Climax is the culmination of these releases. Although climax is not necessary, it is indeed possible to achieve a rereshing without, but certainly is it stronger through climax.
Sex and Astral Travel
Sex is the physical expression of love and it is love for each other that allows you to use sex to help travel to the astral plane together. It is love that allows you to discover experiences and insights. It is love that allows you to bond astrally and physically with each other and to achieve astral travel. Sex is but a stepping stone; a tool.
Sexual experiences by themselves do not bring astral travel. For example, sex can improve creativity as well as energy flow. Sex can also enhance a person’s meditations so they are deeper and richer.
But, unless sex is bound and used with love, it cannot provide travel to the astral plane. If you want to travel as a couple together to the astral plane, you must have love.
