In this wonderfully useable and delightfully candid guide, Diana Daffner draws on ancient wisdom and movement practices to create a fun, fresh and meaningful approach to modern sexuality and relationships.
The simple yet powerful exercises she describes—involving eye contact, touch, energy awareness and focused movement—are easy to incorporate into even the busiest day. Although the emphasis is on intimacy rather than orgasm, the practices are designe to provide plenty of both. Whether you are male or female, young or old, gay or straight, they
  • deepen connection
  • create intimate and sacred space between partners
  • awaken sexual energy and direct it toward maximum pleasure and meaning
Real-world, down-to-earth and illuminated throughout by her and her husband's personal experiences, Daffner's innovative Tantra Tai Chi requires no previous experience of Indian Tantra or Chinese Tai Chi. All you need are minutes a day and a desire to share the gift of passion. 
What Stephanie Thought: I've heard so much about Tantric sex and have only known it as some sort of deep, mystical practice whose effects can be even stronger than that of an orgasm. Better than an orgasm? Sign me up!

Tantric Sex for Busy Couples is a compact, informative book that elaborates upon the practice of Tantra and Tai Chi for beginners and people like me who don't want to invest frustrating hours into it. Its simple illustrations and instructional advice really helps with achieving the mental and sexual connection of this ancient practice.

I especially love how Daffner uses her personal events to explain the specific exercises in this manual. It makes it less routine and more individualized. I tried the majority of the activities featured in this book with my boyfriend, and though none of them were mind-blowing, it was a very relaxing and sensually soothing experience. 

This books is for anyone who wants to change their sex life around a little—not necessarily spice it up, but more like slow it down, to attain the comfortable, sated feeling we all crave, after the best of climaxes.

Radical Rating: 7 hearts: Not without flaws, but overall enjoyable. ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥
