The Japanese Art of Sex: How to Tease, Seduce, and Pleasure the Samurai in Your Bedroom

Jina Bacarr, Author Stone Bridge Press $16.95 (256p) ISBN 978-1-880656-84-6
Geisha are known the world over for their abilities to seduce men, and in this pragmatic but occasionally hackneyed guide to spicing up romance, Bacarr explains how Westerners can emulate those talented sirens. As much a social and cultural history as how-to sex book, this reference addresses and gives suggestions for incorporating typically Eastern traditions such as incense and sake into foreplay. Bacarr, a former Japan consultant for MSNBC, seems well versed in Japanese society and history, and frequently refers to classic Japanese films and customs, even drawing on ancient texts' suggestions for sexual positions (such as Butterflies Fluttering and Fish Eye-To-Eye). Some ideas are a stretch, however (e.g., try""a sexy version of the ancient art of sumo wrestling with your man""), and there are intermittent sexist undertones (e.g., Bacarr tells readers not to worry about their partner falling for a life-size sex doll, since""she may have bigger breasts,"" but she can't""make him breakfast""). 60 two-color illus.
