2.0 out of 5 stars New Age Lite in an Eastern Bottle January 5, 2007
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Although this book purports to expound the sexual practices of Taoism, Tantra, and the Kama Sutra, it is in reality a motivationally oriented lyrical appeal to the power of sensitivity, romance, and the idealistic evolution of sexual union towards spiritual ecstasy. The entire text devoted to traditional Taoist and Tantric practice, however, unfortunately amounts to less than 10 pages of material. The section of the book exploring the Kama Sutra contains 29 drawings of various postures which while adequate for the purposes of illustration, are not particularly endearing, nor are they organized in any particular order. This book is probably best suited for readers who have only a passing interest in Eastern philosophy and sexual practice, and would prefer something motivational in character and simple in application.

The techniques scattered throughout this book have much less in common with Eastern wisdom than they do with homegrown New Age romanticism mixed with good old common sense. Early on and in just two brief sentences, the author largely dismisses the entire body of traditional ancient practice as inappropriate for functional modern relationships. What the author provides instead are predominantly New Age visualizations and affirmations that are quick and easy to learn, accompanied by promises of amazing results upon their application. This "out with the old and in with the new" paradigm is ripe with an Osho influence, as indeed Osho is far and away the author most numerously cited in the bibliography.

Otherwise, contrary to what the author asserts, all men in India are not required to read the Kama Sutra before marriage.

This books helps clearly explain what some of the problems are (and how to fix them) when the two of you don't seem to have the same sex drive. This book will allow you to deepen your relationship with your lover and give you both a new source of energy.

This is by far one of the best book I have ever read regarding this issue. "Sex and the Perfect Lover" is a guide for those who wish a relationships with love pleasure, and intimacy. You can definitely find visualization and other magical techniques to increase your sexual energy. Instructions for how men and women can achieve multiple orgasms, and how to find and stimulate a woman's G-Spot.. The positions of the Kama Sutra for increased sexual pleasure..with a wonderful pictures.. Tips for rekindling the flames of passion in an existing relationship. Techniques for a perfect first time with your love, How to find your soul mate and the seven golden rules for creating loving relationships. Learn about the Tao, Tantra and Kamasutra, and their teachings on the techniques of love and methods to express your sexuality and desires, needs thoroughly and without limitations.

This book is not only about, positions, techniques, relationships or seduction and sex.

This book reminds us that in order to achieve ecstasy we need only to look within. Containing enough information to keep any couple or individual engrossed for years, Sexual Energy Ecstasy is a priceless investment.

Again, magnificently written and illustrated. Any couple who adopts their techniques will expand their relationship far into the joyous state of Sex and Love. So "Buy it and Be happy."

5.0 out of 5 stars Wow December 28, 2006
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This had so many wonderful reviews that I thought I would try it out. I have to agree that this is one of the best books on the market if you are looking for a tasteful way to spice up your sex life. It is short and simple, but has relevant and useful information with all the unneccessary mumbo jumbo deleted.

The author has a great simple writing style and it is wonderfully illustrated with easy to follow instructions. This makes the topic of tantric sex sound approachable and fun, and easy to do without making it sound exotic and difficult. Everyone could benefit from this book, even skeptics that think that tantra is some Eastern exotic discipline will find this book demystifies the subject and makes the wisdom of the topic accessible to all.

I read through this book, and then used the techniques to spice up my bedroom life and marriage, and then shared it with my girlfriends so that they could also benefit from it with their partners. It is so tastefully presented that it can be shared and discussed with others.

5.0 out of 5 stars Well Presented Wisdom February 8, 2006
This is a fine book, well presented with wisdom, heart, and in a tasteful manner. There is a lot to learn in this book, especially about the heart connection and HOW to share this in order to share in a most sacred union.

Mabel's wisdom draws on Eastern philosophies as well as spiritual aspects of love, which, when read, can help anyone who wants to understand more about how to make love beyond just empty sex. And for anyone who would like to learn a lot more!

She shares great wisdom for bringing lovemaking up several notches to help anyone who wants to feel passion and bliss, both inside as well as outside the bedroom in their relationship.

Well presented, and would make a great gift for anyone who wants to enjoy a great love/sex life.
