However, that may not exactly be what its original practitioners had in mind. As we'll discover, tantric sex is a perfectly good way to spend your time, but it's had a slightly odd history fraught with colonial Western attitudes and debauched monks, and what we see these days is very much a New Age creation, not an ancient tradition.

Her book Passionate Enlightenment: Women in Tantric Buddhism , which will be published this summer by Princeton University Press, clarifies the importance of women in the tradition of tantric teachings and practices.

Historians have long viewed the role of women in tantric practices as marginal and subordinate at best and degraded and exploited at worst. Shaw argues to the contrary. In addition to interviews and fieldwork conducted in India and Nepal over a two-year period, Shaw recovered forty previously unknown works by women of the Pala period eighth through twelfth centuries C.

But then stories about famous consorts such as Yeshe Tsogyal are not secret.
Feet of clay? No, it was a different part of the anatomy - and of all too fleshly substance - which caused the trouble. But, I suppose, you don't expect Tantric sex to be a straightforward activity.
