The partner then proceeds to apply gentle, uniform hand pressure on the base of the lingam, working slowly upwards. A good technique is to use alternate hands, pulling upwards and releasing rhythmically and then reversing the process, beginning at the head of the lingam and stroking downwards.
The lingam may get alternately rigid and flaccid during the tantra lingam massage. This is of little consequence and does not reflect on the efficacy of the massage. On completion, the receiver should rest for several minutes either in utter quietness or to the strains of soft music. These are the basic tantra techniques that go into a full-fledged tantra lingam massage. Your tantra teacher will instruct you in advanced methods that deliver the utmost benefit of this healing, rejuvenating tantra ritual.
