Tantric Sex Made simple by Mark A. Michaels and Patricia Johnson reveals 54 tips to deepen intimacy & heighten pleasure during the act of love. The authors have been teaching Tantra since 1999 and thus, comes with a bag full of tricks on this topic proving that Tantric lovemaking doesn't have to take hours. In this fun and mostly easy-to-use (well illustrated) beginner's guide to authentic Tantra may just take your sex life from ordinary to extraordinary. Good thing, anyone can practice these tips and are easily understood. Along with fundamental principles of Tantric sex, you can discover amazing ways to prolong arousal, satisfy your partner, maximize bliss, and reach higher states of consciousness.

Divided into 54 chapters and 9 parts, it is fun and educating in the best form of the word. I liked the fact that subtly it makes a point about sexual attitudes in today's society and strong suggestions about maintaining an healthy sex life without inhibitions or boredom. There is an engaging tone to the perspective of sex mentioned through the narrative which avoids theoretical overload and teaches the technique at the most basic level. it helps that authors maintain a fairly humorous and relaxed approach to Tantra, never overwhelming its audience with impractical suggestions.

Tantric sex has been practiced for a long time in India through spiritual gurus and religious preachers and it is sad that such a primitive form of sex rarely gets a mention in the mainstream with the focus more on hardcore stuff. Not a big fan of self-help books, this one did piqued interest in me as a reader in exploring the new form and arguably, the correct techniques for it. It also comes with real and drawn illustrations which help in understanding the authors point of view. Overall, a different way to spend your weekend with a book. Try it out!
