Description

The short answer is “no.” Tantric sex—or more correctly “sexual yoga”—is a real phenomenon but that does not mean that it is practiced extensively, or by all tantric practitioners, or in a literal sense (in contrast to a visualized, imagined, sense in a meditational context), or all of the time.
