Alvin Avalon is a writer specializing in the eclectic and often bizarre world of New Age beliefs, particularly those with a sexual dimension. When living in London in the 1990s he studied Zen Buddhism and Theosophy, and later went on to study Shiatsu and holistic massage therapy in Bristol. He now lives near the mystical town of Glastonbury in Somerset. While he has written New Age erotic fiction in the past, Secrets of Mystical Sex is his first non-fiction work.
For 2000 years, Buddhists have sought enlightenment by meditating on images of copulating deities, while practitioners of Kundalini Yoga use meditation to control sexual energy and achieve supreme bliss. But sex meditation isn’t just about mysticism. With this book you can learn to attain earth-shattering orgasms, create vividly sensuous worlds of the mind and even develop voyeuristic ESP powers!
There has always been a close but little known link between sex and mysticism. Sexual arousal has been used as a means of entering altered states of consciousness, and sexual imagery has featured in countless sacred rituals. This lively A to Z guide takes you from the ancient wisdom of Tantra, via New Age Goddess temples, occult rituals and phallic worship to the taboo-breaking world of Zen Sex.
