A highly original approach from best selling author Thomas Moore, restoring sex to its rightful place in the human psyche as an experience of the soul.
In The Soul of Sex, Thomas Moore at last restores sex to its rightful place in the human psyche. Describing sex as an experience of the soul, Thomas Moore here brings out the fully human side of sex – the roles of fantasy, desire, meaning, and morality – and draws on religion, mythology art, literature, and film to show how sex is one of the most profound mysteries of life.
While finding spirituality inherent in sex, Moore also explores how spiritual values can sometimes wound our sexuality.
Blending rather than opposing spirituality and sexuality, The Soul of Sex offers a fresh, livable way of becoming more deeply sexual and loving in all areas of life.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
I have read the Soul of Sex several times, and each time, I have derived some fresh insight into my life. If you love the arts, especially visual arts and literature, you will find this book enchanting. If you don't love the arts, you might find yourself becoming more interested in them after reading this book. I found it hard to plow through it, only because I wanted to stop and reflect on my life, or how I could apply the ideas and feelings evoked by reading this. Thomas Moore shows his incredible intelligence, sensitivity and comprehensive approach to life as a wonderful journey, filled with awe and learning experiences. I found the effect on myself and my outlook toward life, love, sex and sensuality quite profound, and recommend this book to anyone, especially someone who feels like his/her life is lacking in some way, as in feelings and romance in everyday life. I highly recommend it as a read-aloud book for couples. It sparks lots of ideas for writing and discussions, and is a wonderful example of positive thinking.
