What is the tangasm? Is it a climax, the way we normally think of orgasm? No. The tangasm is a different kind of bliss. It's a sense of connection: with yourself, your partner, the music, and the rest of the room.
What is a tangasm, and why do we want you to have one in the Tango Adventure?
We live in a pleasure-starved world, where actually, many women and men fear pleasure. We feel guilty or ashamed about indulging in "guilty pleasures" like dessert or taking time for ourselves.
In fact, pleasure is something we need for our health and well-being. As Christine Northrup, author of Women's Bodies, Women's Wisdom, and Goddesses Never Age, has written, “Sustainable pleasure is the ultimate prescription for good health.”
A tangasm is the overall-body- feeling of pleasure that a person feels when she or he is dancing tango and feels connected to her partner, the music, the room, and the moment. It’s bliss. When you have a tangasm, you feel like you are being embraced by the universe.
After a tangasm you may be on a high, maybe even for 24 hours. You can have a tangasm with someone who is not your romantic partner and who you are not attracted to. Or maybe you are only attracted to them on the dance floor.
We teach you about how to welcome in pleasure into your life through the tangasm. For your tango experience and the rest of your life.
We want you to have a tangasm and we'll do our best to support you in having one in our workshops, lessons, and in your taxi dancer evening. In many ways, beginners are best positioned to have one, so don't feel like you need a lot of experience.
To learn more about the tangasm, you can read Sasha's essay "Is Tango Better Than Sex?" which has been wide published on Huffington Post, Manifestation, and translated into Spanish.
You can also listen to Sasha tell a story of her first tangasm below in a live storytelling event in Berkeley, like the Moth.
