    Everything you need to know about astral sex

    Words by Jadie Troy-Pryde

    When it comes to getting between the sheets with your other half or your Tinder hook-up, there’s one thing we can all agree on – we’re all chasing that all-important post-sex afterglow.

    And considering that the majority of British women find sex toys more satisfying than their partner, we definitely need to evaluate how to get what we want in the bedroom. Perhaps you’re thinking about BDSM for beginners to shake things up, or considering trying these amazing sex tips from LGBT couples.

    But something you may not have considered is astral sex. An increasingly popular bedroom trend, it’s all about having an out-of-body experience while you’re having sex.

    What is astral sex?

    An astral projection, or out-of-body experience, is said to be more common for people who are in the stages of a REM cycle where they are in between sleep and consciousness. It’s that feeling you get when you are dreaming and feel as though you are falling, or tripping, before your body suddenly jolts you awake.

    Astral sex is the combination of this moment and sexual intercourse. Its aim is to create amazingly intimate experiences while your soul is traveling outside of your body.

    Experts describe it as the ‘soul’s ability to consciously leave the body and travel somewhere else,’ and astral projection guru Steve G. Jones believes that we have the ability to have out-of-body sex with another soul, meaning there is ‘no procreation, there’s no STDs and there’s no pregnancy.’

    Instead of focusing on a physical union, astral sex relies on two souls connecting in a deeper and more spiritual way.

    Steve explains: ‘Feedback is very important during sexual intercourse and that’s sometimes lost in the physical world… but in the astral world, feedback is automatic, because you’re seeing your soul.’

    How do you have astral sex?

    According to Keen.com, the best way to have astral sex is to lie down and relax as much as you can until you reach a meditative state, then imagine your soul sitting up without moving your physical body. Then, once your soul is free it will roam and find its astral sex partner.

    This means that your souls that are penetrating each other, so physically you and your partner will not need to touch – although it is apparently possible to have the spiritual experience while having sexual intercourse or masturbating, too.

    Why not give it a go tonight?
