What Everyone Should Know About Hinduism

One in every six people in this world as a Hindu by virtue of their birth yet all around the world, people of all nations are becoming Hindu because it offers a lifestyle where life is celebrated and not controlled.

Hinduism offers freedom and a way of living that generates happiness from within, a happiness and joy that is not dependent on any external factors. It could described as the art of happiness and joy which arises when one’s life is aligned with the nature of existence.

As a lifestyle, Hinduism is about living with nature, understanding the cycles and seasons and learning to adapt. But for years Hinduism has been grossly misrepresented

The Importance of Pleasure

A temporary release from suffering

Sharing pleasure

When we consider the nature of our lives, a great many of us are trapped in some kind of suffering as a result of external politics and conditions as well as problems we create for ourselves. Pleasure involves our senses of perception be it physical, mental or emotional with spiritual pleasure or ecstasy the highest emotion.

Suffering and unhappiness is not what we are designed for, it’s simply a consequence of a whole lot of stuff either real or unreal. The baseline for human well-being is peace from which happiness, joy, bliss and ecstasy can flower.

However when people are suffering, pleasure offers a temporary respite and yet it has also become

Women have been counselled to become sex workers

A Tumblr image

The concept of a woman offering sex for money and other favours is generally thought of as the world’s oldest profession and as far as we know, there has never been a time in human history where this has not occurred.

Today in many countries despite the cries of some moralists, what many regard as prostitution has been legalised in many countries. Yet when we look at many marriages, they are often little more than agreements validating sex for money.

Yet moralists around the world even though they may be prostituting themselves condemn the activity of the women who make themselves available to men, but

Massage Styles

Massage methods from around the world

Starting a massage

Massage is the manipulation of the soft tissues of the body and a broader definition may include the manipulation of a person’s energy. However the manipulation of the joints is confined to osteopathy and chiropractic.

Massage is a universal treatment yet around the world people have different approaches because they have different understandings of the human body and how it works.

Massage is also instinctive because when we hurt, we rub the hurt area and we feel better. So every country has it’s own massage style and popular styles have spread around the world to be offered by gifted friends and amateurs, or by trained professionals.

Male Continence

The importance of saving your sperm

John Humphrey Noyes came up with the idea of Male Continence back in the 1840’s as a means of preventing unwanted conception, without injury to either husband or wife and ended up with some 250 people living a communal lifestyle where all men and women of the community were married to each other which stirred up a lot of negative criticism at the time which one would expect as the US is a fairly puritanical country.

However he had a great many enquiries from intelligent men and women in ordinary married life seeking information about Male Continence after seeing and suffering the miseries of involuntary propagation which at the time was remarkable for its

Astral Travelling

You are the light in the body

By Gauri Mataji Devi

Astral Travelling is a process of consciously DETACHING oneself from the gross body and moving on the “astral” or subtle level. It is also called OBE (“out of body experience”).

Astral Travelling is perfectly within the power of each individual. Many people do it unconsciously, sometimes during sleep or in cases of severe suffering or failure of the body system. However, conscious remembrance in the waking state is not the final or only proof of Astral Travelling during sleep/dream, or even a proof that you have indeed had any dreams or not. Everybody dreams, but a very small number of people in specific circumstances actually remember

Tales of infidelity

The experience and feedback

Anon writes: I won’t tell you my name but I’ve been married for five years and having decided to put off having kids until after I turned 30, we’d been working hard to build our dream home. We hadn’t gone too far overboard in terms of debt, but I’m sure this was one of the major factors upsetting our relationship.

In those first few years of courtship and marriage we both had good paying jobs and a great deal of confidence, so we had sex often and everywhere. But in some-ways it seemed too good to last because my work

And a happy ending

Hi, you can call me Carol, a happily single 28-year-old lawyer. All the guys in the office think I’m a pretty good-looking not likely to agree that the flattery as nice. Its a fairly high stress job and its normal behaviour for the guys after a bad day or a particularly good day to go out and get laid after work though it’s not considered proper for women.

It would have been convenient to get off with some of my colleagues that we had a strict rule about office affairs just in case they got out of hand. My sex life on the whole is good enough but on

Sex Before Kissing

A new and dangerous social paradigm

Nice kiss by couplenotes/Tumblr

While sex without kissing for the most part throughout human history has been the prerogative of the soldier/rapist who were typically all men and sex workers who are typically women, sex without kissing was once very rare. A kiss is coming together in intimacy in many forms, it’s a declaration of acceptance, trust and affection, and often times used to convey a progression towards deeper intimacy.

Of course there are times when lovers come together with such intense desire that they forgo kissing, but the increasing openness of society in terms of knowledge that is often distorted, and the ease of the Internet that is saturated with Continue reading Sex Before Kissing
