Urban Tantra: Sacred Sex for the Twenty-First Century

Barbara Carrellas, Author, Annie Sprinkle, Foreword by Celestial Arts $17.99 (288p) ISBN 978-1-58761-290-9
This handy how-to promises mind-blowing, toe-curling, highly spiritual sex for humble beginners, BDSM aficionados and everyone in between. Sex educator Carrellas is on a mission to bring Tantra-the ancient practice of sacred sex, in which interpersonal connection and transformative ecstasy are the norm-to the modern world, to reclaim sex from ""messed-up, sexually-dysfunctional, judgmental, and ignorant culture,"" and to shift the urban sex paradigm from recreational activity to a sumptuous, impassioned way of life. Not that one necessarily needs that kind of ambition: Carrellas offers ways to enhance any old sexual encounter (with techniques like breathing, stroking, prodding and piercing), techniques for solo play and countless uses for a trunk full of toys. Same sex, transgender, and multi-partner play is encouraged (if not highly recommended), and the text is peppered with illuminating, try-this-at-home anecdotes. Pictures and diagrams are whimsical but instructive, making Carrellas's cheerful descriptions of unusual concepts-""gigglegasms,"" ""rainbow rubs"" and ""the mushy puss"" among them-easy to grasp. A final chapter, on ""Sex Magic,"" examines the power of Tantra to achieve a number of effects, from backpain relief to a happier office to world peace; however far you'd like to take your sex life, this friendly guide will likely show the way.
