"This is honestly the best book written on Tantra, period."-Playgirl"Few books on Tantra are truly brilliant. Barbara Carrellas has written of Urban Tantra in a way that warms my heart . . . honest, clear, human and insightful. I am laughing and loving Tantra all over again."-Caroline Muir, co-author, Tantra, The Art of Conscious Loving"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."-Out magazine"URBAN TANTRA gives me hope that the world will become a more sexually satisfied, ecstatic, enlightened, and inclusive place."-Annie Sprinkle, PhD, from the foreword"URBAN TANTRA is the most pleasurable, fun, meaningful, and liberating book on sex ever! Thank you, Barbara!"-Christiane Northrup, MD, author of Women's Bodies, Women's Wisdom "At last, a sex book with a sense of humor, and one that dispels the notion that sex is always, only and forever, between one man and one woman. I can'At wait to see generations grow up with the study and use of URBAN TANTRA!"-Kate Bornstein, author of Gender Outlaw and Hello, Cruel World"Any book on Tantra that begins by describing a professional lap dance as a divine sexual experience is one I will definitely read. Written with wit and humor, Barbara's URBAN TANTRA keeps sex real, and, best of all, the rituals are fun."-Betty Dodson, PhD, author of Sex for One and Orgasms for Two"If you ever thought Tantra wasn't for you-too foreign or gimmicky or New Agey, or not edgy enough for your radical sex explorations-Barbara Carrellas will cure you of all misconceptions and bring you an Urban Tantra to unite your sex, your spirit, your erotic wanderlust, your edge."-Carol Queen, author of Real Live Nude Girl and director of the Center for Sex & Culture, San Francisco"URBAN TANTRA offers a daring, delicious, profound, courageous, and altogether magical celebration that will teach us all to dance to the rhythms of the universe. Barbara Carrellas has written the ultimate how-to book uniting sex with spirit, healing with philosophy, and the animating force of the cosmos with each and every one of us. So if you'd like to live your sex life on a galactic scale, you must read this book!"-Dossie Easton, coauthor of The Ethical Slut"Everyone needs to rejoice in their own sexuality, and Barbara shows us how in this very informative, easy-to-use book. It would be nice to practice Tantra in a lovely remote garden or high atop a mountain, but the reality is that in today's world many of us don't have that luxury. Barbara demonstrates that it doesn't matter where you practice, as long as you'Are conscious when you do. Now, let go and enjoy Urban Tantra."-Louise Hay, author of You Can Heal Your Life and Empowering Women"URBAN TANTRA is a courageous book by Barbara Carrellas, one of the pioneers in contemporary American Tantra. This engaging and comprehensive guide includes numerous powerful exercises as well as moving personal anecdotes that reveal how the conscious exploration and embrace of sexuality can function as a tool for transformation."-Mark A. Michaels (Swami Umeshanand Saraswati) and Patricia Johnson (Devi Veenanand), authors of The Essence of Tantric Sexuality"Barbara Carrellas, whose Urban Tantric sex workshops combine Eastern sex techniques with the postmodern methods of SM practitioners, is a trailblazer."-Tristan Taormino, The Village Voice"

Great book about sexuality, connecting the heart with sex, but I really wish people in the neo/western tantra world would stop calling sexuality practices ''tantra'', they are only one piece of Tantric practice and philosophy, however this is a great book about spiritual/holistic sexuality.

There are loads of tantra/ sexuality resources on the internet and in books, but something gave me the feeling that this book was going to be really the best. And it is! Incredible, easy guidance through amazing personal and couple techniques, addresses loads of questions and nagging doubts, open to whatever your desires/ proclivities, "orientations" are.... The author's tone is full of fun, adventure, deep compassion, excitement. Anyone could use this book. I personally plan to give it to friends as a marriage/ commitment gift as a great way to keep the love alive. Thank you to Barbara Carrrelas for writing it. Now i'm curious whether her other one is as fantastic....

Bought as a Christmas gift - my cousin was smiling a lot when he opened it so i think he was very pleased with it. Arrived on time and well packaged, Thank you
I have enjoyed the freeing perspective of Barbara. The book has a lot of exercises which I want to do. And new ideas.
First rate book especially because it goes beyond the heterosexual assumptions about sacred sexuality and makes such practices accessible to all.
The best neo-Tantra book out there. With none of the 'spiritual' pretence in other neo-Tantra works,... Barbara excels in simplicity, accessibility and humour
I think everybody should read this book, amazing, explains what is tantra about.
I'm 55 yrs old and since reading this book I have learnt more about my body and relationships - I only wish I had known this a long time ago.Read more
