Sex, Sin, & Zen

Reading Brad Warner’s relatively new book, Sex, Sin, and Zen: A Buddhist Exploration of Sex from Celibacy to Polyamory and Everything in Between. Those expecting “spiritual talk” may be disappointed by his persistent guy-on-the-street language — although he does get into discussion of Buddhist ethics and psychology. I appreciate the fact that he’s addressing aspects of sexuality that are not often spoken of in Buddhist sanghas. It’s not a definitive book; more needs to be written on this topic by Buddhists. Still, the book is kind of funny. His interview with porn star Nina Hartley, whose parents are affiliated with SF Zen Center, is interesting.
