Overview

Sex and spirituality are two topics guaranteed to arouse strong feelings in gay-identified persons because of the history of religious persecution of gay people. Many of us were taught explicitly or implicitly that sex, especially gay sex, is the opposite of spirituality. Gay popular culture thrives in the senses, be it opera, disco, or leather. Futhermore, gay sensuality is deeply rooted in homoeroticism, the inescapable fact that we inhabit bodies of a kind likely to be erotically stimulating to ourselves. We need a spirituality that works with our sensuality, not against it. Traditional Hindu Tantra offers exactly this type of spirituality. This ground-breaking text reveals how traditional Hindu Tantra may be adapted easily to serve the unique spiritual aptitudes and needs of gay-identified persons of any gender, demonstrating how a well-integrated gay identity can be a positive aid in the quest for enlightenment. Contains a glossary and index.
