"What is Tantra?"
This is the most obvious question I hear from people straight after I admit to being a Tantric practitioner. I facilitate Tantra Massages and Tantric workshops, not Tantric sex (However, I equip people to go ahead and try that with their partners away from my eyes!)
Sometimes people also ask me what is sexuality and what do I mean by being/living sexual?

I realized that being sexual is not about having an intercourse, watching porn, being promiscuous, or cheating on someone with a lesser sex drive. Although those actions can be manifestations of 
one's sexuality, it would be a shame to get stuck in something this little productive instead of exploring the deeper meaning of our sexual nature. This inquiring enhances our lives, it doesn't harm anyone, and it brings on serene and blissful living. Tantric teachings give meaning to sexuality and bring on its deeper, healthier expressions.
We were born with that vital (kundalini) energy within us after all, and we cannot resist its force.

Sexuality is the sensation we get when the body, mind and spirit align, we get excited about life and fall in love with everything there is. We are open to receiving life's pleasures and we give back positive energy.
We can be sexual while cooking, dancing, doing yoga, eating or just sitting in a meadow under a tree, watching the sunrise, and breathing deeply.

Once experienced, the electrifying feeling can be owned, "bottled up", and mastered for future use in any area of our lives.

Our sex drive doesn't predict to what extent we can get to know our sexuality. We don't need another person (not even a vibrator), to explore the depths of our sexual energy. This energy lies dormant along the spine, and when awoken, it connects all the 7 chakras and produces electric-like sensations. This vital force - kundalini - has nearly a mind of its own. It can energize us, make us vibrate, shake, have visions, have the energy to manifest or create, and yes, it can lead to a very powerful climax. Such release is spontaneous, ecstatic and uplifting.

What made me curious about my sexuality and what makes me eligible to teach such subject to others?
I had my share of bad experiences. I wouldn't take anything back, but at the same time, I am not saying that that was the best path to take. Not everyone has the stamina to explore the 'other' side of sensual, romantic relationships or endure a form of abuse, only to come out stronger and be able to help others.
If I can help other people NOT to go that direction in order to prove themselves that sex is meaningless, only to discover that sex and sensuality aren't just about fucking around, then I would encourage them to embrace sexuality in a different way than I did. I would love to make people aware of their potent life energy in a safe space, according to their own biorhythm, without external coercion or the pressure of less enlightened peers. 
Tantra is the kind of modality that opens the door to new sensations and aligns us holistically.
I am grateful that I have discovered those teachings two years ago and I finally began applying them!
