Publisher's Summary

If you think sexual and spiritual bliss can't be found in today's fast-paced world, you haven't experienced Urban Tantra

Celebrating the 10th anniversary of Urban Tantra, acclaimed sex educator Barbara Carrellas radically updates the ancient practice of Tantra for modern sexual explorers desiring to discover new frontiers. With a juicy mix of erotic how-to and heart-centered spiritual wisdom, this updated edition includes a brand-new introduction, up-to-date references and resources, a new take on the possibilities and responsibilities of Tantra in today's world, plus new and cutting-edge information to reach an expanded community-added information on multipartner play, more intersections for Tantra and BDSM, practices for asexuals and aromantics, expanded practices for trans and gender nonconforming people, and more. 

With more than 100 easy-to-follow techniques for expanded orgasmic states and solo and partner play (as well as more adventurous practices), this in-depth guide reveals the delicious worlds of ecstasy available to all, no matter one's gender, sexual preference, or erotic tastes. Urban Tantra expands the notions of pleasure and opens new heights of intimacy and sexual fulfillment.

Not for those seeking a book on true sacred sex

This book is more about sexual promiscuity than the actual practice of real tantric sacred sex. I do not recommend it for those studying tantra either from a practical point of view or an academic point of view. Look for other source material, there's a number of other good books and audio books on Amazon on this topic.

WONDERFUL listening - excellent narrator

I don't normally listen to books quite like this - but I felt invigorated and refreshed - very inspired by this one. I love the narrator Romy Nordlinger's soothing but authoritative and real tone and the content was SO heartfelt and real. Amazing!

Self promoting drivel

What a disappointment. This book may eventually get around to a discussion of Tantra, but I found myself growing old and weary waiting for that to happen. The beginning is excruciatingly slow and consists heavily of the author’s shameless self promotion. If you seek an exercise in patience, then this is the book for you. Otherwise, prepare to find yourself marooned on the island of soul sucking spiritual disappointment.

Just the right balance between book and narrator

This is an unusual book and I highly recommend it. It’s one of those books you’re going to come back to after the first listen. The narrator is right on the button with her smart, sensitive delivery.

Affected narrator with artificially high pitched voice

I am really disappointed by Audible’s casting of this narrator to read this book. I am very interested in the book and respect the writer but the voice actress is SO INTOLERABLY AFFECTED that I just can’t do it. She has an artificially high pitch, clichéd interpretations and heavy breathing and after a few hours of trying I am going to put this down. This happens way too often with Audible and is a real bummer. If you’re thinking of buying this on audio listen to a sample first since you might want to read (not listen) to this one. Don’t say I didn’t warn you.

good

its , okay, however I struggled to finish it. I will try to listen to it again, but maybe it's the kind of book that it is better read, since at certain parts you will need the illustrations and the list of instructions , otherwise it's hard to follow the exercices. allegedly there is a downloadable pdf yet I haven't found it yet, also when you are listening on the go, hard to pull those up .

This book changed my life and my relationships<br />

Open your mind and heart to Urban Tantra and the beauty of connection. My husband and I loved the book and found it incredibly helpful and stimulating for our growing connection.

Interesting stories but extremely poor narration

I believe that the stories on the whole were well crafted, but needed serious editing.

I thought that the narration was extremely poor and not at all well produced. I would think it obvious that good diction and understanding grammatical pauses were core values of any professional narrator. I sometimes thought that the producers just pulled people off the street and expected them to perform. I think that some of the stories would have been better narrated by a text to speech engine.
