In our age of science and psychology it's tempting to think of human sexuality in terms of biology and interpersonal relationships. But this new book by Thomas Moore regards sex as an experience of the soul and emphasizes the themes of fantasy, desire, meaning, and morality. In The Soul of Sex, Moore turns especially to religion, mythology, literature, rites, stories, and visual imagery that see in sex some of the most profound mysteries of life. He finds spirituality inherent in sex and at the same time explores the many ways in which spiritual values can sometimes wound our sexuality. He recommends chastity and celibacy for everyone--as aspects of sexuality and not only as literal lifestyles--and presents them as a means of developing a sensuous spirituality. The Soul of Sex also establishes the principle that one can't have a fully satisfying sex life in a world that is asexual and antierotic. Thomas Moore recommends many ways in which society could tone down its moralism and create a public life that is erotic, one that affirms desire and pleasure. He sees widespread attention to sex in the media as a symptom of our failure to find a positive place for sex in the culture, and he spells out an Epicurean way of life in which the simple, deep pleasures of good food, friends, family, home, and intimacy with nature provide an appropriate erotic base for a fulfilling sex life. This is a book for any individual of any gender or lifestyle who is trying to integrate sex into the rest of life. It is also a tool for couples, helping them to explore their sexuality with honesty, appropriate emotional complexity, civility, and comfort. Moore argues that sex should be at the center of life and at the top of our priorities and if we don't give sex its due, it will haunt and consume us. But when sex has a soul, deep pleasure and meaning find a common home, and in that sense this book is a sex manual for the soul.… (lisätietoja)

Pages 199 and 201 were interesting, as I noted the pages numbers only, and recall his comment on "the pleasures that build slowly" being lost to our society.

Liked _Care of the Soul_ much better; this one doesn't have the same unity. Still, he provides insight for the naive. ( )

This isn't the best book to start with if you're not familiar with Thomas Moore's writings. Based on reading others' reviews, whatever many readers expect this book to be about when they start reading it, this isn't it. On the other hand, if you have read Moore before, you probably won't be surprised, but you may not find all that much that's new to you in here. Basically, Moore takes the general theme that runs through all his works—that we can add depth, richness, and meaning to our lives by taking care of the soul as well as the body and the spirit—and applies it to sex and the sensual.

Moore covers a wide variety of topics. Some are probably "expected" in a book on sex, like beauty, the sex organs, and morality. Although I found these chapters to be interesting as I read them, I'm not sure how long they'll stick with me. Other topics were more of a surprise, and because they were unexpected, I'm guessing I'll remember them for some time to come. For instance, Moore devotes a chapter to chastity and celibacy, not only discussing those chaste periods most of us go through, but also finding a spirit of celibacy in marriage. In other chapters, Moore looks at the eroticism (or lack thereof) in everyday things like roads and the workplace, or Epicureanism as a means of adding meaning to life. Of course, by this point, he's broadened the meaning of eroticism to include just about anything that involves desire and the sensual. This may annoy some readers as being too much of a catch-all approach; other readers will appreciate having a different way to look at these topics. ( )

The best book on sex and sexuality I have ever read. Wonderfully comprehensive and holistic, this book describes sex as I truly believe it to be. A must read for anyone and everyone. ( )
