An Enjoyable and Respectful Introduction to Tantra
on June 23, 2000
I disagree strongly with the previous reviewer, but I'm just learning about Tantra and he (Colin) sounds well-read on the subject. "Tantric Sex," emphasizes relationships, intimacy, and making sex sacred. I've seen a few other books on the subject that make Tantric sex seem like either a technical exercise or a "lost in the clouds" New Age endeavor. This book is simple and straightforward and practical, with a very sensual and reverential - - yet playful - - tone to it. If you're looking for a book to become a master of Tantra, this isn't it. But if you're looking for some introductory information about Tantra that makes for an enjoyable read, this might be the book for you. I'd like to hear from women who have read this book, because I feel that "Tantric Sex" provides information and stories that can guide many women into the kind of comfortable and meaningful sex they have always wanted. I have only recently entered into a relationship where the sex is more woman-focused instead of male-dominated, and the concepts discussed in this book are exactly what we were looking for, to help keep our relationship growing and vibrant.
