Synopses & Reviews
Now any woman can dramatically increase her pleasure with this holistic guide to female sexuality that combines the sexual wisdom of the East with the best of Western medical research. The book brings together the secrets of an Eastern spiritual master, Mantak Chia, the leading teacher of Taoist sexuality, and the health knowledge of a Western physician, Rachel Carlton Abrams, MD.
Through a series of tailor-made techniques and exercises that will increase chi or "life energy," readers will learn how to reach intense, prolonged, whole-body orgasms. This is a book to help all women reach their true sexual potential--and discover a more blissful and fulfilling way of living in their bodies.
"For women who seek 'heightened spiritual consciousness' with their extended and multiple orgasms, the coauthors of The Multi-Orgasmic Man and The Multi-Orgasmic Couple prescribe a series of meditations and exercises from the Chinese Taoist tradition. The authors' inclusive language speaks to all women, regardless of age, sexual orientation, relationship status, orgasm tendencies or level of experience with meditation. The good, basic information (including a thoughtful bibliography and appendixes) on general sexual health and wellness emphasizes holistic approaches to maintenance and treatment, and the primer on the fundamentals of chi (energy) provides a solid overview of the theoretical basis for the methods developed to cultivate and use this energy. Achieving multiple orgasms, however, requires a considerable commitment to mastering the challenging practice of stimulating and directing sexual energy throughout the body (although the simpler meditations and breathing exercises will help even beginners to relax). There are also many more specific techniques for 'self-cultivation' (the Taoist term for masturbation) and detailed instructions for developing stronger pelvic muscles than can be found in many sex manuals. However, those new to meditation may find the complicated visualization sequences difficult to follow (e.g., advanced techniques involving stone eggs may seem too bizarre for some readers).
