Attention to detail, small gestures with profound meaning, brilliantly intuitive . . . these are the hallmarks of Japanese art, and they apply equally to the Japanese art of sex. Here for the first time is a practical guide that shows you how to use the ancient and modern Japanese sexual practices of court ladies, courtesans, and geisha to spark romance and deliver an erotic "floating world" of pleasure to you and your partner.
Japanese sex is not about the orgasm. In Japan, honest and healthy sex is at one with a love of nature and purity. But it is often the woman who knows more and cares more about extending passion into the realm of spirituality, using all of the senses. In The Japanese Art of Sex you’ll practice aromatherapy, bathing and erotic meditation for calming; explore the art of conversation to stimulate the mind and expose the heart, roleplay to fulfill your fantasies; and, finally, use your fingers and tongue to tease and caress before choosing a position to make love.
Chapters with titles like "The Nine Points of Beauty," "Iki: The Art of Cool," and "Bathhouse Games and Sexy Cuisine" lead you step by step through over a thousand years of Japanese explorations into sex and love. While explicit, the discussions are tasteful and resolutely nonexploitive.
For like-minded modern Western women, eager to explore new ways of lovemaking and pleasure-giving, this book will be a welcome respite from all the other manuals that emphasize technique over the art of sex.

Jina Bacarr has written business books, magazine articles, and co-authored a novel about Japan. She was the Japanese consultant on KCB-TV, MSNBC, and has her own weekly radio show "On the Wild Side," the spicier side of books. She has worked as a companion girl, appeared in Japanese commercials, and written animation scripts for a Japanese movie studio.From Publishers Weekly:
Geisha are known the world over for their abilities to seduce men, and in this pragmatic but occasionally hackneyed guide to spicing up romance, Bacarr explains how Westerners can emulate those talented sirens. As much a social and cultural history as how-to sex book, this reference addresses and gives suggestions for incorporating typically Eastern traditions such as incense and sake into foreplay. Bacarr, a former Japan consultant for MSNBC, seems well versed in Japanese society and history, and frequently refers to classic Japanese films and customs, even drawing on ancient texts’ suggestions for sexual positions (such as Butterflies Fluttering and Fish Eye-To-Eye). Some ideas are a stretch, however (e.g., try "a sexy version of the ancient art of sumo wrestling with your man"), and there are intermittent sexist undertones (e.g., Bacarr tells readers not to worry about their partner falling for a life-size sex doll, since "she may have bigger breasts," but she can’t "make him breakfast"). 60 two-color illus.
