Gwyneth Paltrow discusses sex on lifestyle website

Gwyneth Paltrow has shocked followers of her lifestyle website Goop by posting an introduction to 'tantric' sex.

The Iron Man star, who split from her husband Chris Martin earlier this year (14), gave fans details of the prolonged method of intercourse, famously favored by singer Sting.


The post on the Goop website, which is titled "An Introduction To Tantra", begins, "Mention tantra, and you'll probably get the response that having sex for seven hours sounds really unappealing - as mythologised by an off-hand Sting quote from 1990 that still dominates the entire conversation about this ancient practise. So, what exactly is tantra? We were surprised to find that it's not actually about sex at all-or specifically, not at all about sexual technique. It's really about the bedrock of intimacy-and re-establishing sexual polarity, or in laymen terms, sexual tension."
