9780060930950: The Soul of Sex

In our age of science and psychology, it's tempting to think of human sexuality in terms of biology and interpersonal relationships. But in "The Soul of Sex", Thomas Moore regards sex as an experience of the soul and emphasizes the themes of fantasy, desire, meaning and morality. Turning to religion, mythology, literature, rites, stories and visual imagery he explores the theme of sex as one of the most profound mysteries of life. Blending rather than opposing spirituality and sexuality, he aims to offer a fresh, livable way of becoming more deeply sexual and loving in all areas of life.

Review:

‘Moore writes about sex with depth and intelligence, blending mythological material with a caring, personal style' -- San Francisco Chronicle

From the Back Cover:

In this provocative and highly original work, the bestselling author of Care of the Soul and The Soul's Religion at last restores sex to its rightful place in the human psyche. Here, as he describes sex as an experience of the soul, Thomas Moore brings out the fully human side of sex - the roles of fantasy, desire, meaning and morality - and draws on religion, mythology, art, literature and film to show how sex contains the most profound mysteries.

While finding the spirituality inherent in sex, Moore also explores how spiritual values can sometimes wound our sexuality. He recommends many ways in which society can tone down its moralism and create a public life that is erotic - and one that affirms desire and pleasure. He also interprets the media's obsession with sex as a symptom of our failure to weave sex into the whole of life, and spells out an Epicurean lifestyle where the simple pleasures of good food, friends, family and intimacy with nature give our sexuality a broad and supportive base. Blending rather than opposing spirituality and sexuality, The Soul of Sex offers a new vision of how we can become more deeply sexual and loving in all areas of life.
