Rajneesh (1931-1990), who took the name Osho late in life, was nicknamed the sex guru. He argued that one could not transcend sex without experiencing it thoroughly and consciously, which he proceeded to do as often as possible.
“In orgasm, you come to this deepest layer of your body where matter no longer exists, just energy waves; you become a dancing energy, vibrating. There are no longer any boundaries to you - pulsating, but no longer substantial. And your beloved also pulsates. Now, sexual orgasm needs time - the longer, the better; because then it will go deeper into your being, into your mind, into your soul. Then it will spread from the toe to the head . . . every fiber of your being will be throbbing with it. Your whole body will become an orchestra and it will come to a crescendo. But if you are in a hurry the orgasm becomes just an ejaculation, it is no more an orgasm. It is local and very tiny, almost meaningless. In fact you will feel tired, frustrated, depressed after it, because the energy is lost and it has not given you a bath, so it was just meaningless.”
