Overview

Using an inclusive, empowering approach, this book explains how every woman — heterosexual, lesbian, bisexual or solo — can add relish to sexual encounters and increase her pleasure through use of tantric methods.

Exercises form the heart of the book and cover numerous practical strategies for helping women enhance their sensitivity, remove barriers to fulfilling experiences, and explore the spiritual dimension of their sexuality. Not only does Tantric Sex for Women show its readers how to expand and enhance sexual gratification, it promotes an attitude of remaining open to the many ecstasies of everyday life.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Tantric sex refers to Eastern approaches for deepening sexual unity, prolonging sexual experiences, and enhancing connection with the Sacred. Of the nearly 100 books available on tantric sex, this appears to be the only one including lesbians and bisexual women. Schulte, who lives in Germany, has a background in Gestalt therapy and tantric training. Her approach to tantra is women-centered rather than based on male-female polarities; over 50 exercises for solo and partnered exploration are offered. While a few seem silly, others use creative visualization with skill and inventiveness. Two strong appendixes highlight lesbian issues and sex as healing. The resources section includes music, well-chosen English-language books, U.S. sources for sex toys and sensual oils, and tantra web sites. Recommended for gender collections.

Read an Excerpt

Sex is one way to experience and express love, passion, tenderness and intimacy. Sex is also a way for adult women to play, to experience themselves physically and to encounter themselves and others with closeness and pleasure. Sex as a way of expressing female love can be cultivated, above all through playing, experimenting and practicing.

When it comes to sex, most women prefer the idea of "playing" and "experimenting" to "practicing." Practice is associated -- I believe, wrongly -- with pressure to perform, physical education and boring repetitions. When we see a ballet dancer float across the stage like a fairy, we know -- however moved we may be -- that she trains hard at least eight hours a day; that is to say, she practices. Her skill, then, we refer to as an art.

Loving, lustful, creative and possibly even spiritual sexuality is also an art, and it comes from a desire for love and self-expression, from trying out, practicing, and finally from knowing how. And this is without the need for "hard" training! But how can an orgasm find its depth and length when your pelvic muscles are still unconscious like "Sleeping Beauty"?

Women tend to ignore the art of sexuality, thinking everything will work out "with love." This attitude often hides a distant relationship to her own body. It hides a belief that her lover will know without words what she needs, that her orgasm depends on the love and dexterity ofher lover. Not surprisingly, this attitude can quickly lead to disappointment. And anyway -- what about sexual self-love? What happen in new sexual encounters when you don’t know each other well? The art of love can be learned, and "practicing" can be fun!

    A Book Worth Shelving (in your library)

    Newly single, I purchased the book to help me with my own sexuality. It's been very helpful and informative. I've referenced back to it multiple times - for myself and friends.
