Saving Relationships Through Tantric Tai Chi?

'Intimacy Retreat' Helps Struggling Couples Find That Sexual Spark

Couples retreats can incorporate the martial art of t'ai chi and tantric sex techniques.

Whether they've been married for years or are just stuck in a rut, some couples find it hard to keep that sizzle in the bedroom, but two sex experts seem to have a solution for maintaining that sexual spark: a weekend away at an intimacy retreat.

Diana and Richard Daffner, both in their 60s, are the authors of the how-to book, "Tantric Sex for Busy Couples," and they offer weekend "intimacy retreats"out of their studio in Siesta Key, Florida. There's no nudity, just instructions on how to spice things up. All participants' last names have been withheld.

Watch the full story on "Nightline" tonight at 11:35 p.m. ET

While one may conjure up the scene from "Meet the Fockers" when Ben Stiller walks in on his mother, played by Barbra Streisand, hosting a sex therapy class, this is no movie set. Couples shell out $600 to learn the Daffners' secrets for curing bedroom boredom.

And the Daffners are certainly experts. Married for 25 years, they said they have sex every day at 10 a.m. for at least 10 minutes. It's like clockwork, they said -- but don't mistake this for routine sex.

"We end all of our tai chi, and all of our lovemaking for that matter, with Namaste bow," Richard Daffner said.

After being together for years, the duo said they have cracked the code on what it means to have meaningful intimacy.
