A mystical Tibetan nun through her unique meditations she seeks enlightened beings and follows the lives and loves of two, very different, young women. One is a Buddhist woman warrior, the other an American college student and before either can obtain their spiritual awakening they must acknowledge their own burgeoning sexuality. Separated by time and very different cultures, the two women will respectively meet their Tantra sexual masters.One will slowly lose herself in the world of adult entertainment as the other is coerced into becoming a sexual priestess.
As she lay on her back, a very naked Sarah stared at the cracks in the high, white ceiling that loomed over the king bed. Paul was on his usual a rant about sexuality and religion, what she had come to call the Sexual Gospel According to Paul. Or in other words, as Paul would say, god had no preference among vaginas or penises. She remained quiet and wasn’t about to seriously argue with her tantra master, frankly the sex was with Paul too good!
“Never underestimate the ability of people to delude themselves, and woe be unto those who make them aware of their delusions. That’s why I have my patent pending ‘Paul Bergeron Misogyny Litmus Test’ for all religions: If a religion holds women as having an inferior clergy role to men, then I feel free to immediately discredit and ignore any teachings of said religion,” Paul said.
“You’re not much for small talk, are you?” Sarah said when she really meant, Fool, stop messing with my brain and pay attention to me. Can’t you see I’m all in? Didn’t matter, Paul knew he owned the attractive young college girl. Handsome, funny and with money, he had her hooked big time with his lavish lifestyle on Marthas Vineyard. As a lover he overwhelmed her senses and she could now be persuaded into partaking in any number of sexual whims and proclivities that came to his somewhat jaded mind.
So begins The Erotic Bodhisattva as a strange, mystical Tibetan nun watches the sexual misadventures of a young Sarah from a distance. The nun is an outcast from her monastic order and is in hiding from the Chinese authorities with her lover. Through her unique meditations she follows the lives and loves of two, very different, young women.
One is an American college student named Sarah, the other is a Buddhist woman warrior in Medieval India and before either can obtain their spiritual awakening they must acknowledge their own burgeoning sexuality.
Separated by time and very different cultures, the two women will respectively meet their Tantra sexual masters. The young college woman becomes involved with a seductive, controlling older man whereas a thousand year earlier her spiritual warrior counterpart meets a Tantra guru with very twisted desires and designs for her. One will slowly lose herself in the modern world of adult entertainment as the other is coerced into becoming a sexual priestess servicing the rich and powerful. Both women will fully experience desire and begin a series of tumultuous sexual escapades that will challenge the very core of their existence.
To assist the women in their spiritual quest the Tibetan Nun must discover the bonds that tie the two women together before her own arrest and imprisonment by the Chinese authorities. A riveting sexual adventure for the discerning reader who wants a little more from their erotic adventures. Warning: vivid descriptions of adult sexual relationships—some loving, some very dark, drug use, adult language and violence including some very irreverent humor. Fans of Flores Girl are warned that while this is prequel to the Flores Girl Adventures and this is an erotic novel.
5 Star Review
Literary erotica is sort of the unicorn of the genre, but “The Erotic Bodhisattva” proves that it does indeed exist. It is a tale of three women, two living in different times and places, watched by one who searches for the next bodhisattva. Zenji is a modest Tibetian woman who once discovered her mind’s eye in a tantric meditation that allowed her to see across time and space into other lives, ultimately to be one of them. Called a saint by some, and a witch by others, her story is told by Chodren, her lover and fellow outcast.
Sarah’s story is both sensuous and real, a journey of seductive self discovery as she moves from a nervous art model who can’t quit fidgeting to a sort of spiritual partner to Paul, a top notch photographer and tantric master. Zenji considers her a trite, pretentious little girl and cannot understand how she could possibly be connected to the dakini. The other woman is the rani, and I’ll just say that her story is a jaw dropper and leave it at that. I don’t want to spoil how it goes!
It’s a brilliant piece of work, spiritual as much as sensual, and definitely one I’ll be reading more than once.
