Urban Tantra: Sacred Sex for the Twenty-First Century

Yesterday, I was discussing smooth femdom with a friend who asked how do I know this information; questioning the bases of my opinions on Femdom. My answer was simply reading. Then I inquired about his daily reads. The unexpected response revealed that one won't find Femdom and Tantric Devotion concepts on the cover of sports pages, nor in throws of history novels. At that point, our communication became so much like the typical Man from Venus/Woman from Mars discussion on the inferences and issues of smooth femdom and tantric devotion. This prompted me to post a recommendation to read the book Urban Tantra: Sacred Sex for the Twenty-First Century. The author Barbara Carrellas thoroughly breaks down the ancient practice of Tantra for "the modern sexual explorers desiring to push past their edge in search of the great cosmic orgasm". This book explains the terms and concepts of tantra, the dynamic of moving chakra energy, ecstacy and heightened intimacy which are components of smooth femdom. It can be used as a guide to heightened intimacy, ecstasy, and achieve sexual and spiritual bliss. Maybe, Mars will understand what Venus is saying as it pertains to smooth femdom.

In the clip below, the author Barbara Carrellas speaks on the Sex and Sensuality Panel at the 2008 Yoga and Raw Foods Expo in New York City. The author parlays her revelation of ecstatic "sacred sex". hmmmm sounds like Smooth Femdom musing to me.

World Aids Day

Today, we are observing WORLD AIDS DAY, remembering the ones we lost, those who are suffering and those who are working to end it.

The theme for World AIDS Day 2009 is 'Universal Access and Human Rights. Global leaders have pledged to work towards universal access to HIV and AIDS treatment, prevention and care, recognising these as fundamental human rights. Valuable progress has been made in increasing access to HIV and AIDS services, yet greater commitment is needed around the world if the goal of universal access is to be achieved. Millions of people continue to be infected with HIV every year. In low- and middle-income countries, less than half of those in need of antiretroviral therapy are receiving it, and too many do not have access to adequate care services.

World AIDS Day provides an opportunity for all of us - individuals, communities and political leaders - to take action and ensure that human rights are protected and global targets for HIV/AIDS prevention, treatment and care are met.

Be Safe. Protect Yourself and others.
