Tantra of Sound

 

Tantra of SoundHow to Enhance Intimacy, With Andi Goldman, Charlottesville, VA: Hampton Roads Publishing, 2005.

Tantra of Sound was really a discovery for me!

On first sight, and compared to Jonathan Goldman’s earlier book Healing Sounds, this present book appears to be edited in a more professional way, and in fact, it’s from a different publisher. The choice of headers and font, all is perfect in the present publication, and I did not find one single typo, while in Healing Sounds, I found several.

And this present volume has one big advantage: it comes with an Audio CD that contains 20 tracks over 60.34 minutes of playing time, the first and last being Introduction and Conclusion and all the others being vocal intonations.

In addition, it is noteworthy that this volume has been authored by both Jonathan Goldman and his wife Andi Goldman, and this for good reason.  Continue reading

The Functions of the Orgasms

 

The Functions of the OrgasmsThe Highway to Transcendence, London: Pinter & Martin, 2009.

The Functions of the Orgasms by Michel Odent is a cutting-edge study on the human pleasure function in its largest contextual framework, and with a special regard upon female sexuality and the biological function of birthing and breastfeeding.

Odent’s [book] is a stylish polemic that mixes endocrinology, comparative anthropology, philology, anecdotes from the author’s own medical practice.

—Steven Poole, The Guardian

‘Fetus ejection reflex’, ‘milk ejection reflex’, ‘sperm ejection reflex’, ‘orgasmogenic cocktail’ . . . These are examples of terms used by Michel Odent in his study of the ecstatic/orgasmic states associated with different episodes of human sexual life. This book about male and female orgasms is an opportunity to convince anyone that humanity is at a turning point. Due to the improved technique of medically assisted conceptions and cesareans, the advances in anesthesiology and pharmacology, and the development of the food industry, women can now conceive a baby, give birth and feed their infant without relying on the release of ‘cocktails of love hormones’. Human intelligence and ingenuity have made love hormones redundant. Let us think long-term and let us raise questions in terms of civilization. The future of humanity is at stake.
