Format: Paperback
There are some who would argue that connecting sex with spirituality is not new. That's as maybe but rarely, if ever, has a book been written which deals so straightforwadly and accessibly with the whole notion and practice of both sex and sexuality and then manages to relate to spirituality without boring or losing the reader along the way.
There are two things that particularly struck me about this book. The first was the style of writing which was accesible, witty and conversational, almost at odds with the weighty material at hand. Second was the original thoughts laid out in a way which was not only easy to follow but which also laid the basis for subsequent argument.
Ind herself starts off by saying that it's difficult when thinking about sex and sexuality to know where to begin: freud ? the church ? S&M times ? the Daily Mail ? Her answer is to say, well all of them really and to explore our ideas of sex as a society beofre then moving on to the individual in a quite superb chapter entitled "Whatever turns you on". Having considered aspects of sex and sexuality, Ind then moves on to the spiritual, linking the two and showing that, in fact, "God is sexy".
From the Kinsey scale to kinky sex and with everyone from the pope to prostitutes in the middle, this is a well researched, brilliantly thought out book which in my view is destined to become a modern classic.
