Overview

This book shows both beginners and skilled Tantric practitioners how to use Tantric techniques to create a lifelong, loving relationship. Through the authors' mix of ancient Eastern sexual practices and modern Western approaches to communication and intimacy, partners will learn to connect in ways that are respectful, nourishing, and lusty. With illustrations throughout, Soul Sex includes thought-provoking discussions, personal anecdotes, and precise but simple techniques to inspire you to apply them to your daily life. The observations and exercises included are drawn from the authors' own heady partnership and from the hundreds of couples they have had the privilege to teach at their Tantra sacred sex workshops. Pala and Al describe how they teach others and what they actually do to keep their own relationship emotionally rich, sexually passionate, and spiritually evolving. Their purpose in writing this valuable manual is to motivate couples to act together to achieve something rare: passionate relationships in which they can grow together spiritually into old age, creating love year after year.

An enthralling and highly recommended read

If you are in a loving relationship but feel that something is missing, the teachings in Sacred Sex might be just what you are looking for. It is a sensitive, intelligent and well written book.

Tantra refers to Eastern approaches for extending sexual unity and bonding between couples, prolonging sexual experiences, and enhancing connection with "the Sacred." Typically, tantra books contain many exercises for moving sexual energy throughout the body, delaying/enhancing orgasm (often misleadingly stating that semen loss depletes men), and working with the chakras (body energy centers)-plus sometimes ecstatic claims about changing your life. A Canadian couple, Copeland and Link have practiced Tantra since 1987 and run Tantra workshops since 1997. Their book concentrates on heterosexual relationships and making sexuality a focus in one's partnership. Helpful drawings and charming photos of "real-body" people, plus an excellent annotated bibliography, substantially support the text. Not a key purchase but definitely worth considering. British journalist Sampson attended a Tantra workshop on assignment, hoping to write a light piece about its supposedly sex-obsessed followers. Yet she came out a believer and did research and interviewed other workshop alumni for this book. Easy to read, with more modest claims and a more Western perspective than Soul Sex, it notes use by homosexual couples and devotes a whole chapter to singles. However, Sampson provides no references for intriguing statements like "studies have shown that men who help around the house have sex with their partners more often than those who don't" and a scantier bibliography. Sadly, the lovely photos of perfect-body individuals (no couples) do nothing to explain the intricacies of energy centers, exercises, and techniques. Not recommended; better basics for a Tantric sex collection in public and academic libraries include Margo Anand's encyclopedic The Art of Sexual Ecstasy, Mantak Chia and Douglas Abrams Arava's The Multi-Orgasmic Man, Gay and Kathlyn Hendricks's small but unique Breathing Ecstasy, and William Schindler's Gay Tantra.-Martha Cornog, Philadelphia Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.

What People are saying about this

Mantak Chia
The core of Tantra and Tao acknowledge that through sexual love the relationship between man and woman can support the two of them on their return to the light. Copeland and Link present this work with enthusiasm and compassion. They represent the new generation of spiritual sexuality work that will give realistic support to sincere, dedicated couples.
Director of the Universal Tao Retreats Training Centers and author of numerous books on sacred sexuality
Beverly Whipple
A book that focuses on the process and pleasure of sexual interactions, not on the goal of orgasm, with which I wholeheartedly agree. Although most of my research concerning sexuality has focused on neurophysiology, I am very impressed by the exercises and the depth presented in 'Soul Sex: Tantra for Two.' A very readable and useful sexuality guide.
