    #1 The Heart of Tantric Sex: A Unique Guide to Love and Sexual Fulfillment

    By: Diana Richardson

    After many years of exploration, Diana Richardson found that the ancient practice of Tantra, with its unique, intelligent approach to sex, had the effect of enhancing intimacy and deepening love. Here she has adapted Tantra for modern Western lovers in a practical, sympathetic way. Tantric Sex can transform your experience into a more sensual, loving and fulfilling one.

    Diana Richardson, born in Zululand, South Africa, completed her education with a degree in law. She was qualified as a teacher and practitioner of therapeutic massage techniques. Living in India as a disciple of the spiritual master Osho she began a life-changing inquiry into the union of sex and meditation. After years of personal exploration she presented a unique Tantric synthesis to the Osho Tantra School in India in 1993. Since then she has been teaching Tantra in different parts of the world with a direct practical approach that inspires couple in the art of loving.

    One editorial review calls The Heart of Tantric Sex, “One of the most revolutionary books on sexuality ever written.”

    “Awesome book, full of material that you can put to practicable use. I bought this book expecting a little useful information, but when I read it, I found it quite easy to read, understand and follow. After reading it the first time I wanted to read it again, but used highlighters to make specific marks on what I wanted to try, put to better use and perfect on. I've applied many of these techniques with my wife and found them to be extremely useful. I've recommended this book to a select few people who not only wanted to improve their sex life, but improve the relationship with their spouse, making a stronger bond between them. I've read this 4 times and will continue to talk to others to read this book.” –Amazon review

    #2 Urban Tantra: Sacred Sex for the Twenty-First Century

    By: Barbara Carrellas

    If you think sexual and spiritual bliss can't be found in today's fast-paced world, you haven't experienced Urban Tantra. With a juicy mix of erotic how-to and pleasure-centered spiritual wisdom, acclaimed sex educator Barbara Carrellas radically updates the ancient practice of Tantra for modern sexual explorers desiring to push past their edge in search of the great cosmic orgasm.

    With more than one hundred easy-to-follow techniques for expanded orgasmic states and solo and partner play (as well as more adventurous practices), this in-depth guide reveals the delicious worlds of ecstasy available to all, including: The Erotic Awakening Massage, Breath and Energy Orgasms, Twenty-Minute Tantra Evolutionary Self-loving, Sex and Healing, and Tantric BDSM. No matter what your gender, sexual preference, or erotic tastes, Urban Tantra will expand your notions about pleasure and open you up to new heights of intimacy and sexual fulfillment.

    In the words of Tristan Taormino: "Barbara Carrellas, whose Urban Tantric sex workshops combine Eastern sex techniques with the postmodern methods of SM practitioners, is a trailblazer."

    Out Magazine raves: "Sex educator Carrellas takes Tantra out of the exclusive domain of white New Age heterosexuals and makes a compelling-and hot, and damp-argument that Tantra is for all of us. Her frank how-to offers suggestions for incorporating Tantric principles into queer couplings, with a healthy respect for putting sex back at the center of our lives."

    “This book was my first approach to Modern Tantra, and it is much, much more. Interesting, erudite, entertaining and full of very useful information I cannot recommend it strongly enough. Every woman I know needs to give this to her man, despite experience and complicated classic Tantra studies I took what I personally needed from it learned volumes.” –Amazon reader

    #3 Tantra for Erotic Empowerment: The Key to Enriching Your Sexual Life

    By: Mark A. Michaels and Patricia Johnson, Foreword by Tristan Taormino

    Authentic and engaging, this illustrated guide is unique in its holistic approach—showing how Tantric practice not only greatly enhances your sexual pleasure but also leads to richer and more satisfying experiences in every area of your life.

    Relevant for anyone, regardless of relationship status or sexual orientation, Tantra for Erotic Empowerment features original techniques, self-exploration exercises, and provocative selections from classical and contemporary Hindu Tantric literature to help you discover the source of your own erotic power and transform your life. Tantra for Erotic Empowerment was named a National Best Books 2008 Award Winner in the Health: Sexuality category, and was an award-winning finalist in the Religion: Eastern Religions category.

    Betty Dodson, PhD. Author of Sex for One says: "Mark and Patricia have written a book on Tantra that deals with my favorite kind of sex—with oneself. Let's face it; many committed couples will end up practicing sex with themselves. Even a professional masturbator like me learned a few new tricks that will further my own Erotic Empowerment."

    "Tantra for Erotic Empowerment is a sublime and subversive treat. Mark Michaels and Patricia Johnson show us how expanded awareness and respect for pleasure can free us from the restraints of religious, social, and political conformity. A totally liberating book!" 
Barbara Carrellas, author of Urban Tantra: Sacred Sex for the Twenty-First Century
