    From the publisher:

    Contemporary relationships are in a state of rapid evolution. These changes can and should empower people with the opportunity to develop partnerships based on their own sexualities, understandings, and agreements. This makes it possible to create what Kenneth Haslam, founder of the Kinsey Institute’s Polyamory Archive, has called “designer relationships.”

    Designer relationships may encompass: people who bond emotionally but not sexually; people who agree to be non-exclusive; single people who have occasional lovers or friends with benefits; multiple partner configurations where long-term bonds exist among all or some; partnerships in which people are kinky and that make room to explore kink.

    The possibilities are limitless, and thinking about a partnership as something people can craft allows for flexibility and change. Relationships can open and close or have varying degrees and kinds of openness as circumstances demand. In the context of a designer relationship, decisions are made mutually, consciously, and deliberately. Best-selling authors and nationally known relationship experts Patricia Johnson and Mark A. Michaels are exemplars of this life choice, and have studied polyamory for over 20 years. This book explains exactly how you and your loved ones can design your own life and love.

    From the publisher:

    Tantric Sex for Women encourages women to explore their sexuality in an open, playful, personal way. Using an inclusive, empowering approach, the author explains how every woman—lesbian, bisexual, heterosexual or solo—can increase her pleasure and add delight to her sexual encounters. Key topics include:

    • The essence of tantra and its meaning for women in the 21st century
    • The energy centers, or chakras, and women's erogenous zones
    • Tantric and Cherokee lore on the variety of women's orgasms
    • How tantra can activate the healing power of sexual energy
    • How to feel at home in your own body

    Over 50 exercises form the heart of this book: solo exercises; love games for couples; and rituals, meditations and massage techniques. They are by turns creative and enjoyable, uplifting and profound, even thrilling and naughty, intended to inspire women to activate their sensuality and enjoy the small ecstasies of everyday life. Men who read the book and play with the exercises are likely to gain valuable insight into women and women's sexuality, making them more sensitive and skilled lovers.
