Dougals, N: Sexual Secrets

The Alchemy of Ecstasy

• The #1 guide to sex and mysticism, redesigned in full color for the new millennium.

• More than 600 illustrations of the erotic sentiment, 200 in full color.

• Combines the wisdom of the great Eastern sages with images from the West to present a celebration of creative sexuality.

Sexual Secrets is the definitive guide to sex and mysticism, revealing the wisdom of the sages of India, Nepal, Tibet, China, and Japan whose teachings on sexuality unveil how physical love can be the pathway to spiritual liberation. Containing more than 600 illustrations--the most comprehensive collection of images expressing the erotic sentiment--and with more than one million copies sold in more than 19 languages,
Sexual Secrets unlocks for everyone the experience of ecstasy once sealed in the ancient texts and art of the East.

In celebration of its 20th year in print,
Sexual Secrets has been completely revised and redesigned and includes 200 color illustrations to complement Penny Slinger's unsurpassed black-and-white illustrations, which evoke all the major cultures of the East. Working from contemporary models and from ancient pieces originally commissioned by kings and emperors, Slinger blends images of the West with the sentiments of the East to further enhance the experience of the text and to help in the transmission of the secrets--a celebration of creative sexuality.
Nik Douglas (1944-2012) and Penny Slinger are the authors of Sexual Secrets, Erotic Sentiment: In the Paintings of China and Japan and The Secret Dakini Oracle, and Douglas is the author of Spiritual Sex and The Path of the Mystic Lover. Douglas studied Eastern art, philosophy, and sexual traditions while living for eight years in the Himalayas. He was one of the world's leading authenticators of Oriental art.
"The book touches on every aspect of sacred sexuality that you could imagine and even those you might not. If you want to find the key to understanding the 'alchemy of ecstasy, ' Sexual Secrets is definitely the place to look."
