Dropping the Struggle

 

Sex, Sin and Zen with Brad Warner

Traditionally most Buddhists have taken a very conservative view of human sexuality.  For the most part, sexuality was reserved for procreation.  Many modern Buddhists have struggled to find ways to take a more liberal approach to sexuality while still being true to the tenets of Buddhism that date back 2,500 years to the Gautama himself.

In his new  book,  Sex, Sin and Zen: A Buddhist Exploration of Sex from Celibacy to Polyamory and Everything in Between,   Brad Warner explores the many facets of human sexuality.  In this podcast he talks about his controversial book and how all Buddhists can be true to their spirituality and their sexuality at the same time.
