Yoni massage: What it is, benefits, techniques to try – Medical News Today

11 min read

Yoni massage is a type of sensual massage. It is one of the tantric practices that aim to create intimate connections between people. People can also practice yoni massage alone as a way to get to know their bodies.
People often think of tantra synonymously with tantric sex, but sex is only one aspect of tantra.
Yoni massage is not about sex or foreplay but about getting to know oneself and what feels good.
This article describes:
Yoni is the Sanskrit word for vulva or vagina, and it roughly translates as “sacred cave” or “sacred space.”
Yoni massage is a type of sensual massage that aims to help people feel more comfortable in themselves by exploring and developing their relationship with their body.
Yoni massage is one of many tantric practices. Tantra yoga, for example, was once a preferred practice in ancient India for enhancing sexual pleasure. Yoni massage can involve some tantric positions.
A main goal of yoni massage is to help a person feel more in tune with their body and more comfortable in their skin.
Some proponents believe that practicing this massage one one’s own may help a person work through sexual trauma because it helps a person take control of their sexuality and learn what they enjoy.
Others might find that practicing yoni massage with a partner enhances the relationship.
It is important to note that yoni massage has no medical benefits.
As anecdotal evidence suggests, most people find yoni massage to be an emotional journey rather than a sexual one.
While some people may orgasm as a result of yoni massage, it is not necessarily the goal and does not need to be an expectation.
Some people, however, find that it leads to multiple orgasms. This depends entirely on the individual.
Practitioners say that preparation is key before performing a yoni massage. A person should try to prepare their mind, body, and, importantly, their space.
Choose an inviting area, which may be a bed or the floor. Add plenty of pillows and blankets to make it as comfortable as possible.
Boost the ambiance by lowering the lights or lighting some candles, which may be scented.

A person may prefer to perform the massage in silence or with relaxing background sounds or music. Make sure that the temperature is pleasant.
Set aside enough time to perform yoni massage. It is important not to feel rushed or concerned about the day’s schedule.
Setting the intention is important when preparing for a yoni massage. Set the intention but do not get too caught up in fixing the intent. It should be flexible.
Posture is important for performing a yoni massage. To have the right posture:
Warming up is also important. Breathe in and out slowly, focusing on the inhale and exhale.
Sensual touching is a great way to warm up for a yoni massage. Involve the breasts, areola, abdomen and belly, upper legs and inner thighs. Massage, touch, and pull on these areas however feels good. Work down the body toward the vulva.
People may want to use lubricant or massage oils. Make sure that any product will not cause an allergic reaction or disrupt the balance of helpful microorganisms known as the vaginal flora.
A person should proceed slowly and listen to what their body is telling them and how they are feeling. There should be no time constraints.
Some very simple techniques to try when practicing yoni massage include:
A person can try switching between the various techniques above. Make sure the rest of the body is involved in the massage, as well.
People may wish to try multiple positions when practicing yoni massage, many of which have their roots in the yogic tradition.
A person can assume this position as part of a solo massage or with a partner.
Alone, sit with the legs crossed and the back straight, resting the palms on the knees.
With a partner:
As people become more comfortable with yoni massages, they may wish to try out a new technique.
Orgasm is not the primary purpose of tantric practices such as yoni massage. But if a person finds that they are able to climax through yoni massage, they may wish to try what practitioners call “edging.”
By delaying orgasm, people may find that the experience is more intense when they eventually allow it to happen.
Edging involves stopping the massage just before climax and having some cooling off time. Then, begin the massage again, stopping just before climax. Repeat this as many times as desired.
The more a person repeats this process, the greater the pleasure they may experience when they finally allow themselves to reach orgasm.
People should be aware that yoni massage is not regulated.
Anyone interested in having someone else perform yoni massage on them should do careful research and look for a reputable practitioner.
Well regarded instructors in the field include Layla Martin and Sofia Sundari.
Anyone interested in tantric sex and tantra yoga more generally can find more information at Embody Tantra and Tantra is Love.
There is no scientific evidence that yoni massage has medical benefits. Anecdotal evidence with a long history suggests that it may provide emotional and spiritual benefits.
People can perform yoni massage alone or with a partner. Many who do find it to be a very intimate practice.
