This is an amazing book. It completely changes the narrative around sex in our modern culture for anyone who disagree with how our society currently looks at it.
With his one-of-a kind blend of autobiography, pop culture, and plainspoken Zen Buddhism, Brad Warner explores an A-to-Z of sexual topics – from masturbation to dating, gender identity to pornography. In addition to approaching sexuality from a Zen Buddhist perspective, he looks at Buddhism – emptiness, compassion, karma – from a sexual vantage. Throughout, he stares down the tough questions:
Can prostitution be a right livelihood?
Can a good spiritual master also be really, really bad?
And ultimately, what’s love got to do with any of it?
While no puritan when it comes to non-vanilla sexuality, Warner offers a conscious approach to sexual ethics and intimacy – real-world wisdom for our times.
