National Relaxation Day: Sex Play For Relaxation

National Relaxation Day: Sex Play For Relaxation

August 15th is a time to hit the brakes and take a deep breath or a few breathy moans. So, on August 15, we celebrate National Relaxation Day. While you won’t make it far in life without putting your best foot forward, that work ethic can be as tough as the kickback of a shotgun. You absolutely need to relax every now and then to relieve stress.

National Relaxation Day gives you a chance to just. say. no.  No, you won’t be finishing that client's brief. No, you don’t feel like baking the cookies that have been in the fridge for a year. It’s your time to kick back and chill!

National Relaxation Day advocates chilling out and promotes stress relief through meditation and other relaxation techniques. The rule of the day is to avoid doing anything stressful. Having sex can be a relaxing activity, but if the play is one where you get frustrated, it’s probably not a good idea. Welcome to tantric sex.

What better way for relaxing sex play than to mix it with meditation and the next level of intimacy. When you practice tantra, you’re connecting your body, mind, and soul. A clear mindset and willingness to step out of your comfort zone are important to uniting those parts of yourself.

Some people find that spending 10 to 15 minutes in meditation can help prepare your mind for tantra practise, as it allows you to go inward and examine your thoughts.


Make your self-massage a full-body experience. Get your favourite oil or lotion and pour it all over your skin. As you rub your oil or lotion in, spend time massaging your belly, groin, inner thighs, arms, neck, and chest.


Masturbation isn’t just about achieving orgasm. Instead, take the time to really explore your genitals, and what gives them — and you — pleasure. Touch yourself in new ways. Slow down your strokes. Soften the way you play with yourself.

Remember to breathe deeply and slowly. Whether you’re meditating or masturbating, allow your breath to connect with and send tingles down your body. And be present with your sensations. Instead of letting your mind wander, pay attention to everything your body is feeling. Remember that you’re doing it to feel relaxed.


Foreplay can be anything you want it to be, but whatever you do, make sure you and your partner are fully present. Sit in front of your partner. Look into each other’s eyes. Start to move your bodies slightly as you breathe. After five minutes, start to touch each other sensually, taking turns massaging each other’s arms, legs, neck, and other parts.

After another five minutes, begin to kiss — and only kiss. Focus on every physical sensation you’re feeling at the moment.

Orgasm Control

To do this:

  1. Bring yourself to the edge of an orgasm, then pull back right before you climax.
  2. Let the tingling, orgasmic sensations fill your body, then start again.
  3. Don’t just do this one time, though — repeat the cycle over and over again so you can reach an intense, explosive, full-body orgasm.

You can also try the Rocks Off O-BOY Prostate Stimulator. This sexual stimulator is perfect for helping you get on the edge multiple times. O-Boy's clever hands-free design leaves you free to pleasure and explore yourself or your partner.

Sacred Spot Massage

To do this, slowly and gently rub your partner’s prostate gland or the upper wall of their vagina — otherwise known as the G-spot. Let the heat and energy build, allowing your partner to release pent-up emotions as they come closer to climax. It’s possible to tease, tongue, touch, taste, and tantalise your way to lower stress levels.
