An iconoclastic Zen priest--and punk bassist--offers a Buddhist exploration of sex from celibacy to polyamory and everything in between.With his one-of-a kind blend of autobiography, love of pop culture, and plainspoken Buddhist philosophy, Brad Warner explores an A-Z of sexual topics from masturbation to abortion, gender identity to pornography. In addition to approaching sexuality from a Buddhist perspective, he looks at Buddhism emptiness, loving kindness, karma from a sexual vantage point. Throughout, he stares down the tough questions: Can prostitution be a right livelihood? Can a good spiritual master also be really, really bad? And ultimately, what's love got to do with any of it? Though he's no Puritan when it comes to adventuresome sex, Warner offers a conscious approach to sexual ethics and intimacy fit for all appetites. Since Buddhism is no longer the province of sequestered seekers, this is real world wisdom for our times.
